Time of day:
"May 30, 2035. Cartel forces are gunning for SAMs pointed at their cargo planes. You need to make sure those missiles reach their intended targets."
Defend the Western Bunkers
The first objective is to defend the control point at E2 for 3 minutes.
Defend the Eastern Bunkers
After completing the first objective, defend the next control point at G7 for 3 minutes.
Defend the Convoy
The final primary objective is to defend the control point at D7 for 4 minutes.
Destroy Cartel Helicopters
Players have 6 minutes to destroy five stationary helicopters on the map.
The first wave of enemy vehicles attack comes from the north via the dirt road and from the east via the main road. Lighter classes can snipe from higher elevations down south on either side of the main road. Armored vehicles can stand ground next to the control point, or go hull-down looking over the main road at F5 to intercept incoming enemies from the east.
The second control point at G7 will be attacked from the east, west, and north, hence it's best to defend from the south using the hills as cover. A player with armored vehicle can also consider going up to H6 and use a vehicle as cover, with buildings on both sides to shield themself from flanking attacks. This wave also includes lieutenant vehicles.
The final wave attacking control point at D7 comes from the south, west, and north. Armored vehicles can defend the last objective from the east. Lighter vehicles can choose to provide support behind the rock formations around E6 next to the main road. The safest choice would be the hill at H4, which can be used for all phases throughout the mission, but sniping from that spot heavily relies on other sources for spotting enemies.
