A multiplayer game mode where teams capture a set point in the map (the “headquarters”) to gain points. It is one of the most popular game modes, as it offers experience per time that the headquarters is held, allowing for larger sums of points earned.

Often abbreviated as S&D or SnD, and referred to as YOLO as an April’s Fool joke, is an elimination-based game mode that has been featured throughout the Call of Duty series. A one-sided game mode, the goal is for an attacking side to either eliminate the defending team or detonate either one of two bomb sites. Players only get one life per round, with most versions of the mode going to a best-of-seven rounds (first to four rounds wins). There is an intermission/half when two or three rounds are completed.

The map ends when one of the teams has reached the score limit, or all of a team is been frozen or the time runs out.
