Search And Destroy - Overview

Game Mode Description

Teams will take turns defending and destroying any of the objectives on the map. Destroying any one objective by time bomb will let the attackers win, while making the match time run out without any objective getting destroyed rewards the win to defenders. Eliminating all the enemies also means win.

First To 4 Wins

The first team to win 4 rounds in Search And Destroy will win the match!

No Respawns

There are no respawns in this game mode. You will need to wait for the round to end before you can respawn. Play smart so you don't get eliminated early.

RECON's Sensor Dart helps you detecting enemies intending to ambush you. If you are on defense, move after deploying the Sensor Dart. So you can fall back when more than one enemies approach, just as an example.

Search and Destroy - Gameplay Tips

Attackers Team Set Bomb And Ambush

Attacker Team needs to destroy objectives by setting bombs. Since bomb requires time to explode, it would be a great time to ambush enemies after setting a time bomb.

Defenders take back of enemies from center

Attackers deliberately move around the corner of the map so that attackers who have time bomb would't be killed, which means that they will not attack from center. With this theory you can take attackers back from cetner.
