COD Ghosts 2 Squads Mode will offer the same kind of gameplay that was introduced in the original Ghosts game, however this time round there may be a few adjustments and gameplay additions. Below, we detail everything there is to know on the upcoming squads mode for Call of Duty Ghosts 2 including what exactly it’s all about and some of the different game types.
What is Squads Mode?
Squads Mode was one of the most unique game modes that any Call of Duty game had received and unfortunately it didn’t get that much attention in the original Call of Duty Ghosts. We’re hoping that the developers give COD Ghosts 2 Squads Mode more love and attention because it has the potential to be one of the most played game modes.
Unlike standard matchmaking, Squads Mode lets players fight alongside a team of AI against another player and their team of AI. To make things more interesting, each AI member of a player’s squad can be played in matchmaking by the player and they can prestige and be equipped with a custom loadout and perks which the AI will use in Squads Mode.
Whilst the win in Squads Mode will often be rewarded to the player with the best skill, having upgraded AI will help a player’s chances at winning.
What Game Types are in Squads Mode?
There were a number of different game types for Squads Mode in the original Call of Duty Ghosts and we expect to see them return in COD Ghosts 2. Firstly, there is Squad vs Squad which involves two players as they fight against each other in a 1v1 match. Both players are backed by their AI squad.
The next game mode is Squad Assault and it offers the chance for up to six players to team up and fight against a randomly selected AI squad created by another player. If the AI team wins, the player will earn XP even if that player isn’t online. Safeguard is also part of Squads Mode and this allows players to team up and fight against waves of enemies.
Finally the last game type is called Wargame and this puts a team of players against a team of bots. This mode is designed to replicate standard matchmaking but with bots and it’s best used for practice for newer players to FPS games.
