    Note: If you want to play with a friend you will have to start from scratch rather than starting from a specific section.

    Co-Op Survival

    The Co-Op Survival lets four players work and play together to defend an area from the enemy troops. You can share ammunition and special items with the team.

    Invasion Mode

    This will let you invade another player’s Campaign as an Axis Sniper. What will follow is a deadly game of cat and mouse which will provide you with a totally new dimension.

    Tense adversarial multiplayer

    You can customize your character and loadout to earn XP. This mode will let you take on an intensely competitive 16 players battle.
