What is Siege Mode?
Defend or Take Down the Civilians
Siege Mode is a Co-Op game mode where you play together with up to 6 players. Depending on your team, either keep the civilians alive until the rescue arrives or do everything to take them down.
Play as Either Hunter or Agent
You can choose to either play as an agent where you defend the civilians or as a hunter where you attack them instead. Each team can have up to 3 players.
Multiple Time Limited Rounds
Each match includes 2 rounds with a set time limit. As an Agent, your goal is to keep the civilians till the end of the 2nd round. As a Hunter, you must defeat them before it ends.
How to Play Siege Mode
As an Agent
Create a Perimeter Around the Civilians
Do not all stay in a single area. Spread out as a team to cover each other and the civilians. Doing so will also give you space to help out civilians and agents in need quickly.
Select Characters that Work Well Together
Each character has a set of weapons and items they can. Create a team of characters that will work together and compensate for each other's short comings.
Focus Fire on Tougher Enemies
Bring down tougher enemies quickly by having at least 2 agents focusing fire on it. The other one can focus on defending the civilians for other mobs.
As a Hunter
Create a Diversion then Attack
Work together with your fellow hunters to create a diversion that will take the Agents' attention. Another one can go in and attack a civilian while this is happening.
Focus on a Wounded Agent
If you see an agent struggling, focus your attacks on them to bring them down. If you succeed, you will have one less Agent to defend the civilians.
Do Not Go Off on Your Own
It's a bad idea to go off and attack by yourself. This can easily get you killed by the Agents and put a damper on the rest of the Hunters.
