From a Call of Duty betting perspective, Search and Destroy is one of the best game modes to watch because it’s quick, exciting, and one wrong move can be the difference between victory or defeat. The first team to win six rounds is the winner and with each team member only allowed one life per round, the stakes getting bigger with each round more important to win.
This game mode is set on a map with two bomb sites named A and B and two teams, one the attacker, and one the defender. Each round one team takes a turn defending the two bomb sites, while the other must plant the bomb at either bomb site and destroy it. The attacking team wins the round if they plant the bomb and destroy the site, while the defending team wins if they stop the attacking team.
Hardpoint is an intriguing match type that pits two teams against each other where they fight to secure a designated location. Once a team has secured the location, they earn 1 point for every second they occupy the location.
Every 60 seconds the location is changed and the two teams contest the objective once again.
The Control game mode has replaced Domination in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War and is already a hit with esports fans. Control combines the gameplay of Hardpoint and Search and Destroy, where one team must defend two locations of a map, while the opposing team tries to capture them.
To win the game, the attacking team must capture both locations, whereas the defending team wins if they hold both locations and run down the clock, or kill their opponents thirty times.
