Hardpoint requires you to shoot fast and effective as you go through various points in the map. Versatility and mobility is a must for this game mode where your objectives often shift.

Easy To Obtain

A weapon that's locked behind many hoops and loops may be difficult to obtain and is impractical as recommendations, so a weapon's attainability is considered in the assessment.

Hardpoint Tips

Do Not Go into Hardpoints Alone

Do Not Go into Hardpoints Alone

It's a very bad idea to try to storm a Hardpoint held by an enemy team by yourself. This will just get you killed. Try to have backup with you at all times when approaching Hardpoints.

Play The Objective

Hardpoint requires a player to be inside the objective to either contest or capture it. Play the objective and try to control an area. The enemy team will surely come to fight for it so sit tight and defend!

Flank Hardpoints from Multiple Sides

Flank Hardpoints from Multiple Sides

Do not just go through an entrance with your entire team because the enemy team could have set up a choke point there. Instead, divide your team and flank enemies from multiple sides to catch them offguard.

Shoot Enemies Focused on Other Teammates

There's no better target than one that is distracted by something else. Take advantage of enemies engaged with something else to quickly defeat them.
