Attack and Defend
Breakthrough consists of a team of five defending flags from attackers with a limited amount of spawn tickets. Attackers must take the sector’s flag before their spawn tickets run out, else they lose and switch sides for the second half.


Capture and Hold the Flags 
Teams of five start with control of a flag and rush to control the neutral B flag for tickets. – Tickets can also be earned from kills, vehicles destroyed and squad wipes. – The first team to have 10 tickets in a set wins the whole set. The first team to score 8 sets wins the match. – Flag control is linear: Flag B must be owned to capture A or C from the enemy. Hint: All tickets are wiped when one team wins a set, always be aware of your enemies’ ticket count.


Control Key Objectives 
Teams of five battle over the control of one flag in each of the three sectors. Only the control of the sector’s flag awards tickets. The first to ten tickets wins the sector. Match Victory is earned with four sector wins.
