Modern Warfare 2 Prisoner Rescue Mode Guide – Details
As KorTac and DevGru forces descend on a multiplayer map, a team is assigned attackers and the other defenders at the start of a match, similar to Search & Destroy. Every two rounds, the teams switch roles.
Defenders must protect two hostages who are being held near their spawn area. Nothing can harm these hostages, but they are completely unable to move on their own.
Attackers must physically pick up these hostages, which are marked with a handcuffs icon on the minimap, and either bring them back to the extraction point near their spawn point or hold them at the end of the game’s timer. sleeve.
The prisoner can be dropped at any time, or they will be dropped automatically if the player carrying them is killed.
Movement and shooting are restricted while a prisoner is in custody. The wielder is not only significantly slowed, but they can only use a handgun and cannot perform actions such as prone, climb ladders, or use their melee tool (sorry, no moves). martial arts does not use another person as a weapon).
However, hostage-taking has its advantages. For starters, this is how you save their lives. Second, hostage carriers receive a UAV ping around them, allowing you and your team to see if any enemies are nearby.
When an Operator takes lethal damage, they enter a downed state in the default ruleset, allowing a friendly teammate to revive them. The number of revives either team can attempt during a match is unlimited, but each team member can only be revived once.
Points are awarded for the following actions in Prisoner Rescue:
Each prisoner prevented from being extracted is worth 50 points to the defending team. The attacking team receives 100 points for each prisoner extracted or held at the end of a round, i.e. when time is up or the defending team is completely wiped out.
Additionally, the attacking team only receives 50 points if they eliminate all defenders without hitting a prisoner. Most importantly, the victory condition is that the first team to reach 500 points wins the match.
Players can also earn XP by doing the following each round:
For attackers: transport prisoners and extract them.
For Defenders: Prevent attackers from transporting prisoners.
For either team: revive teammates.
Modern Warfare 2 Prisoner Rescue Mode Guide – Tips
Below are some of the most useful tips you need to know to be successful when playing Prisoner Rescue mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2:
With limited lifespans and the ability to revive, new players should try to stay near a friendly teammate at all times. That way, if you fall, your buddy can pick you up, and you can work together to defend or hold prisoners, which is hard to do alone.
Dashing straight at the enemy, like the other objective modes, is an invite to the bottom of the dash and a quick kick out of the party. Coordinate with your teammates on how to defend or rescue these prisoners.
Teammates do not die when knocked down in this mode. So check who’s down and, if it’s safe, choose those allies if you want an easy way to accumulate experience and contribute to the team.
Keep an eye out for a downed enemy, as their ally can come in and level the playing field with a raise. Knowing where each enemy is downed and checking their location as an attacker or defender is a solid strategy for maintaining an advantage for your team.
Since your Operator can only carry handguns when transporting prisoners, you should include one as backup. Instead of the default non-custom handgun, you’ll get something more suited to your playstyle. Additionally, Prisoner Rescue is a great place to level up secondaries, as transporting them to safety while holding a prisoner grants huge weapon XP in addition to regular XP.
Prisoners can be laid down softly, which can be useful if you’re the last attacker standing. If there’s an enemy nearby, it’s not a bad idea to down a prisoner for a few seconds, subdue the threat, and then continue carrying him around. Alternatively, if a teammate is nearby, prisoners can be “passed” into a belay by dropping and picking them up.
Prisoner Rescue goes beyond just defending or rescuing prisoners with weapons and equipment. What about setting up tactical cameras focused on prisoner locations, so you’re alerted to an enemy’s presence when they’re nearby? As an attacker, a Smoke Airdrop could help you get out of a tight spot or revive a teammate
