Extraction is a new game mode in Halo 4. Extraction currently has its own playlist in War Games. It used to be playable only in the Crimson DLC playlist or on custom games.
The objective is to 'extract' more sites than your opponent. When you get into a site you are able to deploy a ball-shaped device which then extracts nearby UNSC devices. When you are deploying a ball you bring up a device, which at this point remains unnamed. It seems to activate the extraction device. The ball is then deployed by giving it an electrical charge to activate it. The extraction device will also make an electrical noise and if you listen closely you will hear a beeping sound.
- Extraction currently has its own matchmaking gametype.
- It takes 30–45 seconds to extract a site, depending on the map size.
- Extraction is much like Assault.
- The team sizes are 5v5 or 8v8.
