Game Modes

The following list details regular multiplayer modes in Advanced Warfare, but there are also hardcore and classic variations of some modes. Those ones are denoted by an asterisk (*).


  • Atlas Gorge: A playlist that deals exclusively with the Atlas Gorge map. Includes the other game modes in it.
  • Capture the Flag: A classic in which one team attempts to capture the opposing team's flag and bring it back to their own.
  • Combat Readiness Program: A limited mode against bots, in which no XP is given. As the title indicates, it really is a readiness program more so than a full-fledged game mode.
  • Domination*: Try to capture all control points on the map.
  • Free-for-All: Regular deathmatch, with no teams.
  • Ground War: A game type that accommodates more players. Includes the other game modes in it.
  • Hardpoint: Go to the hardpoint on the map and fight off enemies to score points. The hardpoint will shift on the map multiple times in a single game.
  • Infected: After a short amount of time one player becomes the "Infected," and the remaining players (the "Survivors") must survive a set amount of time or kill the Infected.
  • Kill Confirmed: Just like Team Deathmatch, except the only way to score points is to pick up dogtags from dead enemies.
  • Momentum: Attempt to capture the main flag and begin moving the capture point further into enemy territory. There are five flags in total and the goal is to capture all five points on the map. This is similar to the mode in World at War.
  • Search and Destroy*: Try to detonate the bombs or prevent the other team from doing so, depending on which side you're on. This mode only allows one life per round.
  • Search and Rescue: A combination of Search and Destroy and Kill Confirmed in which picking up an ally's dogtags revives them, while an opponent picking them up eliminates that player from the round.
  • Team Deathmatch*: Kill the opposing team and try to have the most kills when all is said and done.
  • Uplink


  • Exo Survival: A cooperative mode in which up to four players fight off waves of enemies. The maximum number of rounds is 25 and the waves reset after that, but the difficulty increases. When all players die the mode ends. Exo Survival allows players to withstand a lot more damage and enemies move around frequently. Upgrades can be purchased at certain spots on the map with points earned from killing enemies.
