The timer is paused while on your team's Hardpoint, and kills add 15 seconds to your timer up to a max of 30 seconds. Successive kills grant up to four additional buffs: improved weapon handling, ADS speed, slide speed, and a larger explosion upon death (granted after a five-kill streak.) The first team to reach 200 points, or the most points before time expires, wins.
  • Multi-Team Elimination - New last-team-standing mode added to Multi-Team. Ten teams of four fight to survive expanding radiation zones. Redeploys are limited and loadouts are restricted.
