Battlefield 2042’s Multiplayer Game Modes:
Battlefield 2042’s multiplayer consists of five different game types:
Conquest – A team-based objective-oriented game type where two teams compete to capture control points located around the map. Each team starts off with a limited number of soldiers, while the opposing team begins with unlimited amounts of troops. When a point is captured, the defending team loses control of that point but gains a temporary advantage. After capturing enough points, the team can then call in reinforcements or use special abilities.
Rush – A free-for-all game type where each player fights alone against waves of enemies. Players are given a limited amount of ammunition and health, and once they run out of either resource, they will die. Once a player dies, he respawns at the last checkpoint he reached. This game type is played in short bursts, usually lasting only a few minutes.
Domination – Similar to Conquest, except that the goal is to destroy enemy flags instead of capturing them. Flags represent bases that provide resources for both teams. If a flag falls to the ground, it is destroyed and the base becomes inaccessible. Teams may also deploy vehicles into the field to help defend their bases.
Team Deathmatch – A traditional deathmatch game type where players face off against another team of opponents.
Air Superiority – An air combat game type where players engage in dogfights above the battlefield.
