- "It's robot against robot in this all-new in-game limted-time event! Can you secure victory in M.U.T.E Tower?"
— Official Description
The event was announced on August 2, 2020 and launched on August 4, 2020. However, the event was suspended on August 5, 2020, due to a bug that would make Attackers invisible and immune to damage. The bug was later fixed in a subsequent update and the event was reactivated on August 10, 2020. The event ended on August 24, 2020.
The event takes place in the far future on a modified version of the map Tower. The Attacker and Defenders have been fighting one another for decades and the machines have risen from the hostile battleground of Ranked. A now cyborg Mute took over the Tower before the fifth corporate war, rebranding it as M.U.T.E Tower. Now Mute has sinister plans in store so the robotic Attackers must fight to gain control.
Special Secure Area is a modified version of Secure Area. Unlike the standard gamemode, players must fight for control of two areas on the map and there is no preparation phase. Additionally, a new movement mechanic is introduced that digitizes players bodies whenever they use observation tools. The Attackers may travel by Drone and spawn wherever their drone is when they exit the drone view. Should an attacker's drone be destroyed, they will return to the spawn in Operator form. Likewise, the Defenders can teleport throughout the map through placed Bulletproof Cameras. Defenders automatically enter the network when viewing a camera and will exit from the last viewed camera.
Forty-one Operators are available for use in the mode and do not need to be unlocked in normal multiplayer order to be used. The following operators are unavailable for use in the event:
As with other events, M.U.T.E. Protocol features limited-time Alpha Packs containing Headgear, Uniforms, Weapon Skins, and Charm that are themed around the event.
