Mission Types

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Killzone Shadowfall

Note: Before starting a match you can customize a TON of options, such as turning guns, explosives, and abilities off. You can turn on/off friendly fire, bots, certain maps... there are quite a few options! Pick what is best for you!

Team Deathmatch


Your classic deathmatch mode: kill more of the enemy team than they do! Pretty simple.

Beacon Retrieval


This is pretty much "Capture the Flag", except with, well... beacons. The beacon carrier gets points as he carries it (a small amount) and is tasked with delivering it to their base. After awhile a new beacon will spawn. This is one mission mode the assault class's "Speed Dash" ability is especially helpful in, but always try to protect the beacon carrier.

Beacon Theft


This is pretty much the same thing as up above except your team now has a beacon as well and can't score while your beacon is in danger (you cannot return the beacon until yours is secure), giving you two things to watch out for. Once again speed dash is god here for obvious reasons.

Beacon Safeguard


This is pretty much the same as the other two beacon modes, except you never return it anywhere: you just keep it safe. Time is important here, so you want whoever has the beacon to dig in and be protected at all times. Take it back to your base (but don't go inside: they're wise to you!) and protect!

Capture & Hold


This is your standard "capture location" objective. You'll be given three locations on the map that you can capture (points for capturing) and will be told to hold them as long as possible. It is best to focus on 2 out of 3 if you have limited resources or evenly matched teams. Turrets and spawn beacons help a ton here (as does air support, depending on the map).

Capture & Move


This mission is similar to the previous one except the capture objective area only comes one at a time. After awhile, it will then move to another area, often across the map. Turrets and the support class are excellent for this mission, especially if you can remember to de-construct and take your support with you.

Capture & Connect


This is a good mission. This mission places five objectives on the map and makes each team fight over one of them at a time in a "tug-of-war" style, which ensures a moving battlefield and concentrated fighting all throughout the mission. This is one of the default missions in warzone.

Search & Destroy


This mission involves either attacking or defending to randomly placed bombs on the map. If you are attacking your team should try to focus on one bomb right away (maybe send a scout to the second) and overwhelm it. You'll then need to set the charge and wait until it blows up before heading to the next one.

Defending teams should break out the turrets and air support (as well as beacons) and pick a target to defend. Try to defend both as long as you can and then go all-out on the second one to force a draw of the mission.
