Everybody loves Team Deathmatch and why not? It’s pure, non-stop action that promises gun fight after gun fight. It’s a true test of individual ability. But to truly experience the depth and breadth of Multiplayer, you need to taste the spice of objectives.
Objective modes provide all the same MP action but your goals aren’t just to rack up kills. Specific goals vary, but objective modes provide unique challenges that test your skills in different ways. They’re also great ways to earn extra XP.

One of the most popular objective modes in Call of Duty, three areas of the map (A, B, C) must be captured and held to get points. The more areas you control, the more points you get. You switch sides once one team hits 100 points, first team to 200 wins. The ebb and flow in this mode depends largely on how often your team’s spawns change, or ‘flip’, to the other end of the map. Points A and C are usually considerably easier for a team to control as they’re the farthest apart, while B, typically centrally located, will make for the most hotly contested fighting. Every Specialist has a crucial role to play in Dom, but Battery’s explosives and Firebreak’s Purifier can clear out multiple enemies at once as they try to capture or hold an area. Also, a well-timed deployment of Crash’s Assault Pack and TAK-5 health boost can give your team the extra oomph it needs to capture a heavily defended point.
