PLAYING THE
ONLINE GAME
y Online Mission Types
As you cycle through Game Lobbies on the BRIEFING screen,
each game's mission type appears to the right of the Game Name under
GAME DETAILS to help you decide which game to join.
Breach: SEALs attempt to break through barriers and destroy key targets in a
terrorist stronghold. Terrorists use their fortifications to prevent the SEAL incursion.
Demolition: Find the bomb and blow up the opposition headquarters. Get hold of the bomb and become the hunted as enemy
troops try to kill you and your team before their HQ is destroyed. Lose the bomb and you're now on defense. Plant the bomb in the
enemy base and prevent it from being defused by the enemy until it blows up.
Suppression: This is a pure fight to the death between SEALs and terrorists with a five minute time limit. The winner has the
most men left standing. Suppression maps can be set to respawn and players will instantly come back to life after being killed to
rejoin the fight.
Escort: Key personnel need to be moved to a secure location. SEALs win by getting at least two VIPs to the extraction point or
killing all terrorists. Terrorists win by eliminating all VIPs or all SEALs.
9
SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs
Sony Computer Entertainment America
y Online Mission Types (cont'd)
Extraction: This is a hostage situation. SEALs win by killing all terrorists or escorting at least two hostages to the extraction
point. Terrorists win by killing the SEALs. If the terrorists murder a hostage, it counts as a rescued hostage for the SEALs.
Control: This is all about territory and taking control of it. In order to do so, you must be the first team to plant a beacon at each
of the control points across the environment. Once a beacon has been planted, it can't be taken away by the enemy, but they also can
plant a beacon at each control point. The team that is able to place beacons at all of the control points first, wins.
Convoy: One team must guide a convoy across enemy territory and through a series of checkpoints to a pre-set location. Once
there, they will have to pick up some cargo, and then continue through another set of checkpoints to make it out alive. It's up to
the opposing team to stop the convoy. If both of the cargo vehicles are destroyed, or all of the convoy team members are killed, the
opposing team wins. If at least one of the cargo-loaded vehicles makes it through intact, the convoy team wins.
