UPDATE: Michael Condrey has tweeted out confirming that Kill Confirmed is back as well.

Here’s the full list of modes we know so far:

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Domination
  • Team Domination
  • Search & Destroy
  • Search & Rescue
  • Capture The Flag
  • Hardpoint
  • Uplink
  • Momentum

Advanced Warfare multiplayer will feature 12 game modes on Day 1. Some of the fan favorites have been announced to be returning, including TDM, Domination, Search & Destroy, Hardpoint, and Capture The Flag, with new modes like Momentum and Uplink.

Michael Condrey has confirmed today that Search and Rescue mode will also be returning in Advanced Warfare. Search & Rescue was introduced by Infinity Ward in Call of Duty: Ghosts as a take on Search and Destroy.

A take on Search & Destroy, but rather than having a single life per round, in Search & Rescue your team can revive you. When you die, your player drops a dog tag. If your teammate collects the tag, then you can be revived. If the enemy gets to it first, then you’re out for that round.

    What do you say about “demolition” game mode.

    • Daniel

      I want it back so bad! My favorite game mode!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Condrey confirmed KC as well. Here are the current gamemodes:

      -Team Deathmatch
      -Kill Confirmed
      -Uplink
      -War (whatever its official name in AW is)
      -Hardpoint
      -Search and Destroy
      -Search and Rescue
      -Capture the Flag
      -Domination
      -Ground War
      -Free-For-All
      -*maybe* Blitz

      • jordanxbrookes

        War’s new name is called Momentum 🙂

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          ty.

      • Vermell

        Uplink can be considered a Blitz 2.0 don’t ya think?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Yeah, but you can pass the orb and shoot it into the goal. Kinda different.

          • Vermell

            Yeah hence the 2.0 part

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Meh, it’s kind of a stretch.

          • Vermell

            Not really, all they did was add one thing. Basic premise is still the same, score on enemy base. Yes you can pass the drone around now, but other than that its the same.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s like S&D and S&R both being in the game.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            um no…it will be very different in fact, if you don’t have the ball, you wont be able to score. But, in Blitz everyone can run to the enemy side and score a point. This changes how the game is played entirely. Not to mention the ball passing and HAVING NO GUN while you carry the ball…so yeah.. much different…

          • Venom the great

            We need headquarters back!!!!! If they want me to continue to support cod
            Been playing since day 1 and that last game was bullshit!

        • STEALTHD3M0N

          Uplink is like BO2 one flag ctf but more futuristic and you can throw the ball

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Uh… hmm… Maybe a little bit. Difference is, is that you don’t teleport, I don’t think.

      • Mario Rivera

        Take out SNR and bring back demolition. I also dnt see the point of having both ctf and uplink as they are both very similar.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Not really the same, I don’t think.

        • Super

          what the fuck are you talking about, ctf and uplink are completely different.

          • Puppet Master

            No no there not.

      • Diissss

        Blitz was to make up for CTF. We don’t need it anymore.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Alright. I couldn’t think of anything else. There’s one more unconfirmed gamemode, then.

    • baseballer59

      Yes demolition on black ops 2 was amazing and I really want it back!!!!

    • Edwin Cortez

      the Spawn Trap game mode i don’t believe its coming back…

    • ccrows

      Serious question for “Demolition” fans:

      Would you still play Demolition if Tacs weren’t in the game?…

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        yes

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Why play with tac inserts? Kind of cheap.

        • ccrows

          I fully agree, but the majority of Dem lobbies that I’ve seen had “at least 1 person” trying to spawn trap with tacs. Sometimes the entire team.

          ^ Granted most of them doing that were squeakers, but still…

      • MichiganerE

        Yes, fuck Tacs.

      • Haitian Jack

        The main way that I used to get my “destory X amount of tacs in a single game” was in demolition. Never used them though.

      • Puppet Master

        Yes tacs are for pussies.

    • Puppet Master

      That was always a top 5 game mode in played in player count. Why IW removed it is beyond stupid.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Sweet, the best of both worlds, just like with the perk ‘Peripherals’, that turns your minimap from that classic square into the Ghosts rectangle minimap.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I just noticed that. I don’t know, could be OP. Might not be.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I dunno, you’ll be sacrificing Blind Eye, Cold-Blooded, Fast Hands and Gung-Ho so, who knows. One thing everyone wants is Dead Silence.

        • Black

          Yes. We need Dead Silence.

          • Pilot #171

            The Dead Silence perk is confirmed to not be in the game. Optic Midnight confirmed this when talking to the devs in one of her videos.

          • Black

            Hopefully, they’ll change their mind.

        • I never use dead silence, so I don’t see the big deal. Explanation?

          • jordanxbrookes

            The footsteps are quite loud in Advanced Warfare, so Dead Silence should be in Advanced Warfare, especially in Search and Destroy and Search and Rescue. The last thing you want to piss you off is to have bombsite defenders sound whoring you coming to plant.

        • George Claude

          you can use a greed wildcard

  • PhillyT

    Hardcore TDM?

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      DUH.

  • Primey_

    Have we seen any gameplay footage of Momentum?

  • TG

    Will Headquarters be in Advanced Warfare?

    • No headquarters

      I doubt it. Hard point is really similar .

      • MichiganerE

        Both modes were in BO2.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Headquarters = King of the Hill, which is Hardpoint.

      • Didn’t BOII have both Hardpoint and Headquarters?

        • MichiganerE

          Yep.

  • I_HAV2_POOP

    I wonder if Drop Zone will be back? It was awesome on MW3 and BO2

    • Retard

      *Face Palms*

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      They’re going to do a bunch of cool shit in this game, don’t worry.

  • Adam

    I’m looking forward to Momentum the most but they haven’t showed any gameplay of it.

  • VARiiATION

    1. TDM
    2. FFA (not confirmed but…it’s FFA)
    3. Momentum
    4. Hardpoint
    5. Search and Destroy
    6. Search and Rescue
    7. Uplink
    8. CTF
    9. Domination
    10. Kill Confirmed ?
    11. Demolition ?
    12. Blitz ?

    • Mateo

      Yes to KC. I tweeted Michael Condrey and he responded..

      • VARiiATION

        Awesome, thanks!

    • Don_Kornholio

      i would be happy with this list

    • Mitch

      I’m missing Ground War from your list.

      • Don_Kornholio

        i think groundwar is a playlist and not a game mode

        • Retard alert!

          You’re dumb

          • Don_Kornholio

            I’m dumb because I made a honest mistake about a video game, humans these days…

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            honest mistake? I would say “stupid mistake.” you are an idiot.

          • Don_Kornholio

            I think an apology is in order

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Do you know what the difference between a Gamemode and a playlist is?

          • What is Ground War again? I don’t think I’ve ever played it. And I hope gun game and infected are going to be brought back. And make gun game give more XP. Like, srsly, it gives none.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Ground war is 8v8 and it alters between TDM and Domination randomly.

            Edit: 9v9*

          • MichiganerE

            Nope, Ground War is 9v9.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Close enough. Haven’t played it since BO1.

          • MichiganerE

            That long?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yup, not a big fan of it, lol.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It also includes Kill Confirmed, at least it did in Black Ops 2.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Nope, it is a gamemode.

        • Mitch

          It has always been a gamemode, but I’d love it to be a playlist.

          • Mario Rivera

            Its a playlist, stop trying to be right haha

    • jordanxbrookes

      FFA MUST BE IN ADVANCED WARFARE!! Otherwise I’ll be paying Mr Condrey a visit!!

      • Guest

        Bro you are in every single comment section of Charlie ingles posts don’t you have anything better in your life to do

        • Guest

          Intels

        • Whoa

          And how would you know this? Oh wait because your also in every comment section/article as well! So don’t you have anything else better to do than find out who’s on here actively as much as your on?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I see, you turned the tables on Plankton over here, impressive.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Bro, you do realize there’s a lovely social media called Twitter? Which means I get notified of any new article, don’t like me commenting? Ha, well tough luck Sunny Jim.

      • I dun’ like FFA…

    • Dumb

      Take off blitz and add ground war

      • VARiiATION

        GW will be in for sure, I don’t think that counts as one of the 12 game modes though. If so then I agree scratch Blitz!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      KC is confirmed. Blitz MAY come back, we’re awaiting confirmation. Ground War counts, too. Demolition isn’t coming back, I don’t think.

      • Retard

        Blitz is not coming back because blitz is basically ctf

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Oh, I heard it from a rumor somewhere. I guess there’s one unconfirmed gamemode, then.

        • Mitch

          Search and Rescue is also basically Search and Destroy and that’s coming back.

          • K

            I doubt blitz is coming back because only 300 people play it

          • K

            Dude, why you pinch my anonymous name? 🙁

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          except way different

      • I dont think that you need blitz when you have the gamemode uplink

        • Mario Rivera

          And ctf…

          • Jeremy.

            do you even know what uplink is?

    • I_HAV2_POOP

      Drop Zone maybe

    • Why Blitz when CTF has returned?

    • I_HAV2_POOP

      Scratch Team Tactical and insert (haha he said insert) Drop Zone

  • Kind of off topic, but I’m referring to Scorestreak Modules. Can you only place one Module on a Scorestreak? If not, what’s the specific number, or do we even know?

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      3. Out of 5.

      • MrGladiator20

        Where did you hear this from? I saw in Charlie Intel’s one video he only had 1 module on his UAV and it was support. So I think you can only have one but I’m most likely wrong.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    I’m hoping 9v9 is the staple/default for TDM/KC. Remember, the gameplay we’ve seen is on LAN where ATVI/SH asked YouTubers to come, the player count isn’t official, so I have my fingers crossed.

  • VARiiATION

    If Ground War is back (which it should/better be)…what modes should be in it? TDM, KC, Momentum, and Domination?

    • Mitch

      I’m waiting for the day Ground War becomes it seperate playlist. We need this!

    • :D

      Tdm, kc, and dom like always

  • Luis Someguy

    1. TDM
    2. FFA
    3. Momentum
    4. Hardpoint
    5. Search and Destroy
    6. Search and Rescue
    7. Uplink
    8. CTF
    9. Domination
    10. Kill Confirmed
    11. Ground War
    12.Team Tactical

    Thats it???

    Thanks VARiiATION!

    • I_HAV2_POOP

      Scratch Team Tactical and insert (haha he said insert) Drop Zone

  • Pete

    demolition HAS to be back… 🙁

  • Paradoxgaming

    I would like to see a ‘mosh pit’ objective and kill playlist, similar to how ghost dlc play list is set, so I have a variety of gamemode for each match, rather then having to just play dom, or just play SND

  • TVIchaos

    Okay, this might be a little off topic. But I’ve learned something important, DO NOT READ YOUTUBE COMMENTS whenever a new CoD is around the corner. All you will find is little dirtbags who have nothing better to do than say stupid crap about AW. Has it dawned on them how stupid and childish they sound, I mean come on, it’s a video game meant to entertain you, not attract trolls like fleas to crap.

    • Paradoxgaming

      You mad bro?

      • TVIchaos

        No lol, I just find it really annoying when people do that, haven’t they got anything better to do.

    • Aymen Skiken

      i agree , it pisses me off , they just try to find some random stupid reasons to hate on the game…

  • jordanxbrookes

    Woah, woah, there’s normal Domination and Team Domination? What’s the difference? How about we have Team Defender?

  • Veegees

    Demolition would be awesome on AW with all the new stuff, I’d love to see a comeback.

  • aaa187

    Where is FFA? The day FFA is unsupported is the day I stop buy a Call of Duty game.

  • Munir Fernández

    I dont understand what is it with COD developers and demolition is the Best objective base game mode and they took it out on 2 consecutivo titles

    • jordanxbrookes

      What you talking about? Demolition was in Black Ops 2.

      • Munir Fernández

        Yes but not in Ghost and AW as i can see

  • Hells2theYeah

    This made me so happy, I never liked SnD, but I absolutely loved SnR.

  • The fuck is team domination and how does it differ to domination?

    • Trippy Leatherface

      Maybe the whole team has to be on a flag to capture it lol idk

  • George Claude

    team domination wtf

  • isnt all the regular game modes 9v9?

  • CC

    Does anyone know or asked if they’re adding bots once it’s released?

  • Justin

    Hopefully there is a good amount of hardcore choices

  • Alex

    I may be alone on this but I really enjoyed the reinforce game mode I was hoping they would bring it back but I guess it’s only a IW thing

    • Suu

      “I loved Reinforce, I hope they do.”

  • DEMOLITION

    DEMOLITION DEMOLITION DEMOLITION DEMOLITION

  • MichiganerE

    All we need now is Demolition and Ground War.

    Edit: Also, Team Domination?

  • jordanxbrookes

    Come join Bricey’s Advanced Warfare Q&A livestream, he says there are 20 sensitivities in the game, and also he says the TTK isn’t fast, it’s similar to Black Ops 2. http://www.twitch.tv/briceyhd

  • Antonio Duman

    They should bring back Demolition and Headquarters

  • Antonio Duman

    Headquarters, Search and Destroy are my only favorite game modes

  • adrian

    what about cranked! 🙁 i love cranked its all i play in ghosts

    • Cadence

      Cranked would be a good fit in AW. I hope it returns.

  • FraMarte

    Domination (ffa?) + team domination?
    I hope they bring back demolition and some of the party modes from bo and later cods such as Gun game, but managed better than ghosts’s that was made almost random

  • Nick

    Fuck man sledgehammer has done everything right besides bringing back specialist. If zombies are actually gonna make it into the game were talking a game changer right here. Really hope demolition is there and cranked aswell.

  • mark

    Headquarters is one of the best game modes for pubs. Its just like hardpoint except you have a chance to get to the hq before you can get points off of it. The best thing is holding off the HQ 1v6 just destroying the other team.

    On a side note, there better be a way to turn off aim assist because i always play without that. Ghosts didnt have the option to disable it and I hate when it Fs me up.

  • Dominic McCall

    Ground war would be epic in this game

  • yardis

    What’s the difference between domination and team domination? Is one like a free for all?

  • J Sama

    Domination and Team Domination???? So does that mean Team Dom is multi-team? Or does it simply mean Dom is mercenary and Team Dom is classic Dom? Anyone confirm

  • Cadence

    Glad S&R is back. I never enjoyed S&D because it’s brutal on rushers like myself, but S&R gives me a fighting chance. People know they can potentially respawn, so they don’t camp as hard. I find gameplay to be much more fluid and exciting in S&R. The tag element introduces a whole new dimension of strategy. I personally enjoy playing as a “medic”, just reviving teammates with my riot shield. I can’t wait to see how this mode plays in Advanced Warfare.

    I’m hoping Ground War makes the cut. GW is pretty much 90% of all I’ve played since CoD 4. Engagements are more frequent, and it makes the game faster-paced (which is a godsend for Ghosts. Makes maps like Stonehaven are actually playable). Ground War in Advanced Warfare would be absolutely insane.

  • Sagar Trika

    What is the difference between Domination and Team Domination?

    • LovekillerX

      Well maybe in Team Domination people actually play objective. 😀 Well just kidding. I don’t really know and I am wondering that too. Maybe we will find it out soon enough. 🙂

  • xiSpeedy

    get rid of SnR and bring back demo and sabotage. those are classics

  • LovekillerX

    I really hope that one of my favorites which is infected returns. I know that it is difficult to design it again because of exosuits and that’s why I really don’t expect it to return. 🙁 Maybe I play MW3 when I want to play infected.

    But as I have said earlier, that uplink seems like pretty fun gamemode. Maybe I should try it when I get the chance. 🙂

  • Guywithbrains

    Everything is looking great! There are some nice maps. My favorite is Ascend, it reminds me a little bit of Terminal somehow. Weapons and scorestreaks look awesome and possibility to get in to your friend’s VTOL? That is brilliant. Customization is great too.

    Also nice modes there. It would be nice to have infected back. It was one of my favorite modes in MW3.

    On the side note, what is the difference between team domination and domination?

  • Anyone who knows more about Team Domination?

  • Scumbag Brit

    why is there domination and team domination?

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    What weapon is this? The BAL? It’ll be my go-to weapon http://www.charlieintel.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/e-620×360.jpg

    • jordanxbrookes

      Same here, I even said it when I first saw it, it reminds me of the Famas from Black Ops, therefore I’m gonna love this weapon. Plus I’ll be getting it in the Atlas skin 😛

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        It looks sick.

  • Trippy Leatherface

    CTF is way better than blitz because enemy’s can just camp in the goal area and keep scoring in blitz while in CTF they have to run back

  • Trippy Leatherface

    Get rid of SNR & Bring back Reinforce

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    Nice.

  • NEON

    What is Team Domination? o.o

  • jason

    guys I think I found out there’s diamond from cod aw http://i.imgur.com/DYCeH6e and http://i.imgur.com/a7jNzIN

    Demolition and Sledgehammer bought me

  • Alex

    I say we all tweet sledgehammer, micheal or callofduty about demolition, they’ve been listening to the fans so lets make it happen!

  • Kill Denied

    I hope to God that they include a classic mode without the exoskeletons.

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    Can someone tell me if the bal-27 weapon included in the collection editions,is an exclusive weapon or is a upgraded weapon ?

  • ted

    Headquarters was the best game mode. I don’t know why they won’t include it.
