Securing an Alarm Room

Secured Alarm Room

The event features a unique Canister gamemode, where the Warbands(Attackers) must secure a Canister containing a plant, which the Keepers(Defenders) are able to carry and relocate to any location at any time.

  • No Prep Phase
  • Each round is 3 minutes long
  • Each match has four rounds, with one overtime round should both team win two rounds
  • Attackers and Defenders swap roles every round
  • Throughout the match, a constant beeping sound can be heard by all players, which helps the Attackers locate the Container, and Defenders locate Attackers.
    • The frequency of the beeping is faster the closer an Attacker is to the Container.
    • The beeping pauses when an Attacker is securing the Container.

Defending[]

  • Defenders can win by protecting the Container from being secured until the timer runs out, or by eliminating all Attackers.
  • The Container is spawned at one of four locations voted upon by the Defenders
  • The Container can be picked up by a Defender and dropped at any desired place, including outside the building.
    • A Defender cannot sprint while carrying the Container. However, unlike in Hostage, they have all Weapons and Gadgets available to them with full functionality.

Attacking[]

  • Attackers can win by securing the Container, or by eliminating all Defenders.
  • The Container can be located by Drones. A Drone will automatically spot the Container if its dropped within its field of view, even if no one is actively monitoring through the Drone.
  • The Container can be detected by IQ's Electronics Detector, even while it is being moved by a Defender.
  • To secure the Container, an Attacker must interact with it up close, similar to disabling the Defuser in Bomb. Defenders are alerted if an Attacker attempts to secure the Container.
  • Attackers can secure rooms by interacting with an alarm panel in them. Once secured, the rooms will ping any Defender who enters it.
    • Secured Alarm Rooms are indicated by glowing yellow lights inside them.

The mode limits players to choosing between 20 Keepers and 20 Warband.
