Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Modes Detailed 9

Rush 

“An objective based mode, the attackers have to arm and detonate pairs of M-COM stations in each area of the map to unlock the next area and the next pair of M-COM stations. While defenders have an unlimited amount of spawn tickets, attackers only get new tickets every time they destroy a pair of M-COMs. If all M-COM stations on the entire map are destroyed, the attackers are declared the winning team. If the defenders manage to deplete the attacker’s tickets to zero (by killing them), the defenders are declared the winners.”

  • Availability: On all 9 maps
  • Players: 24/32 (Console/PC)
  • Focus: Objective Based All-out Warfare
  • Goal: Attack/defend M-COM stations
  • Winning the game: Destroy all M-COM stations/Deplete the attacker’s tickets (Attackers/Defenders) 

Squad Rush

“Squad Rush is an extremely tight duel between two squads that borrows the main rules from normal Rush, but in a much more intimate setting. In Squad Rush there are only 2 bases with 1 M-COM station per base, meaning that every M-COM taken or defended in Squad Rush is vital to the victory or defeat of the game. There are no vehicles in Squad Rush, so it’s all down to your infantry fighting skills.”

  • Availability: On all 9 maps
  • Players: 8 (4 vs. 4)
  • Focus: Squad Based Infantry Combat
  • Goal: Attack/defend M-COM stations
  • Winning the game: Destroy all M-COM stations/Deplete the attacker’s tickets (Attackers/Defenders)

Conquest 

“Set over a series of large-scale maps, Conquest is the game mode best suited for the experience of all-out vehicle warfare. In Conquest, two teams fight for control of a number of flags by being the dominant force in the vicinity of each base. Capture and keep control of a majority of the flags and the enemy team will bleed tickets. Killing enemies will also reduce their ticket count, and the first team to run out of tickets loses.”

  • Availability: On all 9 maps
  • Players: 24/32 or 64 (Console/PC)
  • Focus: Objective Based All-out Warfare
  • Goal: Capture and Hold Flags
  • Winning the game: Deplete opposing team’s tickets
