Grind Mode Overview
|Round Limit||Score Limit||Party Size|
Dog Tags Are Dropped When Killed
Getting killed drops all collected dog tags, making it necessary to keep yourself alive while heading towards the bank.
How to Win a Round
Collect Dog Tags & Bank
Dog Tags must be "banked" in order to be counted as points. As soon as a player enters the "Bank" all dog tags are removed and counted.
Grind Mode - Recommended Weapons
Recommended Weapons List
|MP5||Great mobility with decent range. Can be relied upon even when hip-fired.|
|AUG||Same as with the MP5. May be better due to its extensive selection of attachments.|
|MP7||The SMG with the highest rate of fire. Can hose down multiple enemies when hip-fired.|
|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
Mobility For Easy Dog Tag Retrieval
Mobility should be heavily considered as you'll be going around collecting dog tags in this game mode. Outrun and outgun your enemies with well placed hip-fires and collect their tags!
Suppression & Area Control
You can also bring LMGs to suppress and control a bank or area. You can also use these weapons to cover your teammates while they retrieve dog tag stacks.Check Out All Weapons Here!
Grind Mode - Recommended Equipment
|Semtex||Lethal||Timed sticky grenade.|
|Molotov Cocktail||Lethal||Improvised incendiary device that explodes on impact.|
|Stim||Tactical||Military stimulant that cauterizes combat wounds and refreshes Tactical Sprint|
Use Lethals To Deny Dog Tags
Throw either a Semtex or a Molotov Cocktail to piles of dog tags to kill or prevent enemies from trying to retrieve the very tempting pile.
Use Stims To Recover
Keep yourself rolling and fighting with Stims. Use them to quickly recover and get yourself back into the fight.
Grind Mode - Recommended Perk
|Double Time||Double the duration of Tactical Sprint. Increase crouch movement speed by 30%|
|High Alert||Your vision pulses when enemies outside of your view see you.|
- Triggered by enemies controlling Chopper Gunners, Wheelsons, IAVs, and APCs.
|Tracker||Enemies leave behind a footprint trail. See markers at enemy death locations, and hide the death markers of enemy you kill|
Double Time For Longer Sprint!
Sprinting can get you in and out of a battle fast. Bring the Double Time perk to help yourself survive when collecting and picking up dog tags.
High Alert For Added Safety
High Alert keeps you on your toes when venturing out in the open. This perk is especially useful when you're collecting dog tags as it warns you of impending danger.
Use Tracker To Seek Targets
Tracker is a must-have in this game mode as it allows you to seek out and follow targets. You can use this to flank and get easy kills and dog tags.Check Out The All Perk List Here!
Grind Mode - Tips
Going into Banks is the only way to count carried dog tags. One good strategy is to guard these areas and wait for enemies to come, so you can shoot them down and deliver the dog tags for your team instead.
Go With Allies
Unlike other game modes, going solo in Grind is a good way to get yourself killed. Coordinate and follow teammates for easy retrieval of dog tags and added protection.
Banking Dog Tags
5 Tags At A Time
Dog tags are not completely removed when handing them over at a bank. 5 dog tags are counted at a time, so if you have more than five of them, you're required to stay a bit longer to deliver all of them.
Banking Gives You Killstreaks
Play the objective as the points that you get from collecting dog tags and banking them counts as points for your killstreaks. Make sure to collect, survive, and bank!Check Out All Killstreaks Here!
