The best game mode for teamwork. Work together as a team to capture and hold flags upon the battlefield, hold as many flags as you can and your enemies’ tickets will drop. If your enemies’ ticket reaches zero you have won the battle.

Commander Battle

Also known as ‘Last man standing’, this is a game mode where two teams are set against each other. The team with the last remaining soldier on the field wins.


Often during the Napoleonic wars an enemy fort needed to be captured. Work together as a team and breach the enemy fort with your cannons or ladders and claim it as your own! Or take side of the defenders and hunker down defensively.

Capture the Flag

Take the side of one of two teams and attempt to capture the enemy flag from their base whilst trying to prevent the other team from doing so.

Team Deathmatch

A combination between teamwork and a messy battlefield, fight against the other team for the most kills, stay focused and work together if you fancy any chance to win.


You’re on your own! Deathmatch is a cold and chaotic place in the year of 1812, so keep your musket loaded and bayonet sharpened. Fight for survival, fight for personal pride, fight to win!
