The point of the game is simple, hold the hill for the longest time or to the time requirement. Depending on if the game has a moving hill, you may need to search for the hill periodically. The hill is either a square or circular holographic which is projected by an indestructible holographic projector which shows neatly the boundaries of the hill. This game type may be played as a FFA or Team based game.
A useful tactic during team games, is to have one person inside the hill scoring points, and the rest of the team fanning out and defending the hill and player in it.
Close Quarters weapons are usually the best weapons for holding the hill, as the close proximity to other players makes them desirable.
Due to the hills visual style it could be used as a form of camouflage to surprise opponents attacking or defending the hill.
Often players will throw a grenade into the hill in an attempt to clear out opposition before moving in. Hence, a player can accumulate a number of multiple kills if the opposition is standing too close to each other when the grenade explodes. Occasionally some servers may limit access to grenades to make this much more difficult.
When controlling the hill, a bubble shield tends to be very useful.
