|Operation: Desert Saber|
Time of day:
"September 5, 2036. The Lions of Nequiel captured several villages surrounding a local port. You must liberate them as soon as possible."
Players have 12 minutes to complete all objectives.
Liberate the First Village
Capture the control point located between G0 and G1.
Liberate the Second Village
After completing the first objective, capture the control point at C4.
Liberate the Third Village
After completing the second objective, capture the control point at C8.
There are three possible secondary objectives in this mission, but only one will appear per playthrough.
Capture the UAV
This objective requires the players to find and capture the UAV, whose location is not revealed on the minimap until a player vehicle drives close to its location, which can be at E4, F7, or G3.
Upon locating the UAV, an enemy vehicle will spawn nearby and attempt to capture it. When a player successfully captures the UAV, the bonus objective is complete and the aircraft will automatically spawn as an ally, spotting all enemy vehicles within its vision range. However, the UAV can only stay airborne for 2 minutes before it gets shot down.
Should the enemy capture the UAV, the objective would fail and the aircraft would be deployed against the players.
Find and Destroy the Jammers
Players have 6 minutes and 30 seconds to destroy three stationary jammer vehicles. The markers on the minimap indicate possible locations, but only one is correct for each group. When one jammer is destroyed, the next group of possible locations is displayed on the minimap.
If the players fail to destroy all three jammers in time, the bonus objective would fail, and all player vehicles' vision range is reduced for the rest of the mission's duration.
Kill the Messenger
When approaching towards a control point, an enemy vehicle, which can be distinguished by its designated status, spawns nearby and tries to escape in one direction. Possible locations include B3 and H0. Destroying the designated vehicle before it despawns beyond the map border completes the bonus objective.
Upon approaching or attempting to capture the first control point, enemies spawn from an area beyond the western map border and close in towards the objective location. Eliminate the enemy resistance, then head towards the second control point when the first objective is complete. However, beware of enemy Armored Fighting Vehicles that get in the way as players head towards the next objective.
The second control point is on top of a small hill, where it would be attacked by enemies from the north and east. On the final control point the enemies come from the east and south. The map's terrain is largely open area with several small hills, so players with lighter vehicles can make use of some of the hills to spot incoming enemies and provide fire support.
On Hardcore difficulty, a lieutenant vehicle can spawn on one of the three control points.
