|Round Limit||Score Limit||Party Size|
Dropzone plays similarly to Hardpoint with each team battling each other for control of randomly placed capture points. The twist is that Care Packages containing Killstreaks are dropped while a team is controlling an area.
Killstreaks Are Taken Not Earned
Equipped Killstreaks have no effect in this game mode. Killstreaks can only be gained by taking the Care Packages dropped when a capture point is being occupied.
To Get The Care Package Or Not
While Killstreaks can turn the tide of the battle, they are random, can make you vulnerable to enemy fire, and can also be captured by enemy players.
How to Win a Round
Stay Longer Inside Capture Points
The more members there are in a capture point, the more points are earned. Capture points are not permanent and are relocated after some time. The team that ends up with the most number of points or reaches the score limit wins the match.
Dropzone Recommended Weapons
Recommended Weapons List
|M4A1||Fully automatic, all purpose battle rifle. Control your shots, and this weapon can be very effective at range.|
|AK-47||Very reliable automatic assault rifle chambered in 7.62mm Soviet. Large caliber ammunition requires skill to control recoil.|
|M91||Robust light machine gun sacrifices mobility for stability. High caliber sustained fire will neutralize targets at long ranges.|
|Holger-26||Versatile fully automatic 5.56mm light machine gun. Modular design can be configured for a broad range of engagements.|
Criteria For Recommendations
LMGs Can Hold Points & Suppress
LMGs, while heavy and bulky, provide the user with a large capacity magazine and enough firepower to safeguard a path or entry point. This allows it to easily secure points while keeping enemies at bay, a must-have trait in Dropzone.Check Out All Light Machine Guns Here!
Assault Rifles For Most Situations
Be it mid or long range, ARs are very useful tools in eliminating threats. Use them to pick off enemy players at a distance. You can also use attachments that would make them more effective in close range encounters.Check Out All Assault Rifles Here!
Dropzone Recommended Equipment
|Molotov Cocktail||Lethal||Improvised incendiary device that explodes on impact.|
|Thermite||Lethal||Burns fiercely for a short while after impact. Sticks to all surface.|
|Smoke Grenade||Tactical||Deploys a smoke screen that blocks vision and automated targeting systems|
|Gas Grenade||Tactical||Explodes on impact with the ground, releasing a lingering cloud of tear gas that causes slowed movement, blurred vision, and coughing|
|Snapshot Grenade||Tactical||Provides a momentary glimpse of enemies within the blast radius.|
Use Molotovs & Thermites
Molotovs and Thermites are Lethals that provide damage over time on a given area. Use them to either flush out enemy players capturing a position or to block chokepoints.
Gain An Advantage With Tacticals
Use Gas Grenades Or Smoke
Gas Grenades are pretty useful when assaulting a position. They have a decent area of effect, disabling and confusing enemy players caught in its smoke cloud. You can also opt to use Smoke Grenades to cover you or your teammates when capturing Killstreaks.
Snapshot Grenades Can Help
As enemies are more likely to concentrate guarding a capture point, you can lob a Snapshot Grenade to get intel on where they are exactly located. Use this before you and your team assaults a position for greater effect.
Dropzone Recommended Perk
|E.O.D.||Take reduced damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire. Hack enemy Claymores, Proximity Mines, C4, and Trophy System.|
|Tune Up||Reduce the charge time of field upgrades by 33%|
|Ghost||Undetectable by UAVs, Radar Drones, and Heartbeat Sensors. Immune to snapshot grenades.|
E.O.D. For Extra Defence
Using E.O.D. Perk is a great way to survive against enemies that use explosives before assaulting the capture point. This perk is extremely valuable when defending against enemy attacks.

Ghost For Stealth
The Ghost Perk makes you invisible to enemy UAVs and snapshot grenades. This makes you almost invisible to enemy electronics and radar equipment.Check Out The All Perk List Here!
Use Care Packages As Cover
Getting the Care Packages can make you visible and vulnerable to enemy fire. Plan your angle of attack and use them as cover when capturing them.
Killstreaks Can Be Stored
You can collect Killstreaks and store them for use later. As Killstreaks occupy only one slot in this game mode, the most recent Killstreak will be used first.Check Out All Killstreaks Here!
