UNCHARTED 2 “The Lab” Weekend: Sniper Extermination Starts Now!

47 6

If you aren’t already planning on participating in the “The Lab” this weekend — or haven’t in previous weekends — log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer and check out the limited-time-only “The Lab” playlist in competitive matchmaking.

UNCHARTED 2: The Lab "Sniper Extermination" for PS3

This weekend’s episode of “The Lab” is Sniper Extermination. All players start with only Dragon Sniper rifles and there are no other weapons available on the map. The goal of the game is similar to our Elimination gametype — once you or your opponent has been dispatched, you’re out of the round until all opponents on either team are wiped out. The team with any or the most remaining players left alive wins that round. Best of five rounds wins the entire match. No Boosters are active for Sniper Extermination, so high-level players and teams who have unlocked Situational Awareness won’t be at an unfair advantage of those who haven’t unlocked Evasion yet.

We’ll be running Sniper Extermination on the following multiplayer maps:

  • The Sanctuary
  • The Train Wreck
  • The Warzone The Plaza
  • The Lost City

“The Lab” is open from Friday, June 25, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, June 28, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?).

You can stay up to date with future “The Lab” dates and gameplay parameters through this sticky post on the Naughty Dog community forums or by checking back on the “the lab” tag on the Naughty Dog blog. We will be posting the schedule for “The Lab” weekends for July early next week.

Hopefully very few of you are asking “What is The Lab?” If you are, head over to this post on NaughtyDog.com which gives you a bit more background on what to expect.

One more thing. Do us a favor and log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer next weekend for a little something special. We’ll reveal next week what we’ve got in store for our multiplayer community.

  • oh this sounds good :)

  • Great, hopefully this will make more people play the DLC maps too.

  • Something special! Double Cash? Special skins like Thanksgiving and Christmas? *crosses fingers*

    • For next couple of weeks starting with The Lab we’ve got a couple nice things in store. We’ll be talking some more about that really soon — as soon as we’re able to.

  • Cool…I havent played UC2 in a while. I guess now is a good time to get back on. Though last time I tried I was never able to find a match, this was 2 weeks ago.

  • i cant wait for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hopefully we can get some new maps because i dont know wht the warzone is up top? maby a new map!?

  • @AEREC….same story here..only i tried to get back in like a month ago and nothing doing.This has definitely got my interest again though.

  • You know, being that U 1&2 are two of my all time favorite games, I feel an overwhelming sense of quilt for not putting more time into the stellar multiplayer. I really, really hate my backlog sometimes :(

    That said, I booted up U2 last night and realized, backlog be damned, I need to get back into this game! Hopefully, I’ll be “snipering” it up with everyone this weekend!

  • LAST!

    I do love some intimate sniper action!

  • Gee you think there will be a little bit of camping this weekend?

  • Special!!!!!!!! Damn Uncharted 2 is well worth its value, hell i got platinum about 2 or 3 weeks from its drop date, intense moments!

    Guess its time to dust off UC2 again for some multiplayer!

  • ohh , damn , i love the idea , but i dont have dlc yet

  • Oh this is gonna be good

  • Can’t wait to log in tonight! :)

    Can’t wait to see what you have for us next week!!!

    I would really like to see the “weapons-variety” regularly in the standard “Elimination” modes, Am I the only one? Like a “Pistols and Grenades” because “Elmination” games are really “intense” but the fact that “veteran” players just goes for the BIG weapon at the beginning each time can be bad sometimes for the players that don’t know the location of each weapons in each stage.

    I REALLY like Uncharted 2 but I would really appreciate the differents weapons sets for Deathmatches to be available for ALL multiplayer competitives modes, like King of the hill, Gold rush etc.

    • Thanks for the thoughts! We’ll keep that in mind. The good thing is that we can alter playlist parameters whenever we want.

  • I’m pretty sure Warzone = The Plaza

  • Nope taken from the Naughty Dog Website its is
    * Temple
    * Village
    * Train Wreck
    * Ice Cave

  • nevermind i fail horribly

  • I don’t get why people are talking about DLC here for the special matches this week-end? The 4 maps are not from DLC, or Am I wrong? (For my part, I have the DLC anyway but…)

  • Triple Cash Weekend

  • Can’t wait…the Lab is fantastic. Loved the shotguns and pistole only and the 2 vs 2.

  • @17 we are just hoping this post will make more people play the dlc maps, cause it has been hard to find a game in those maps.

  • Oh great a mode with nothing but campers…awesome.

  • Sweet Can’t Wait to get in and try out all the Major CAMPING :D

    on a Side note… MAG really needs to FIX there Game.. FREEZES more now since the last update :(

    My PS3 Locked up after a big Explosion in Domanation and LOST my Major Killing Streak :(

    Gives me a Reason to come back and play Uncharted 2

  • YESSSS!, thank you dad for getting this game for me, its so funn!

    Q: Are you guys going to release a new map?

  • No Boosters is the way to go. Please ND leave them out of Uncharted 3, for fun and balance sake. Keep MP as close to SP as possible!

  • Might have to come out of retirement for this one.

    I put a good 48 hours of online into this game, the first time I’ve played anthing online for more than a few matches. <3 you ND.

  • Arne Meyer is there a pick your own weapons play list in every match

  • The hits keep coming. I’m gonna be playing this game for a LONG time.

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    Where is Uncharted 2 GOTY edition? I wanna get back in the game.

  • mmmm u know what…. U guys never do anything for ur costumers from Puerto Rico. its like u guys dont even care. U dont even have Puerto Rico in the time list… U have loyal customers over here u know…

  • Great job Naughty Dog! I love the game, but I hope you add some more MP content, especially new boosters. There should be boosters that give you increased sniper ammo, reduced spawn time, etc. You should also do more to develop co-op, like more medals and upgrades, and new objective co-op scenarios for the DLC maps.

  • Sadly….I am not a sniper…. I don’t have an hot dogs or marshmallows anyhow..

  • this sux i want shotgun deathmatch back, its the fastest way to upgrade once you reach level 58

  • Are pistoles meant to be in this because i dont think you mentioned it.

  • Hey naughty dog! love the continued support for my favorite game of all time! any chance of seeing the wes handgun finding its way in any online matches. Or cross bows? That’d be awesome. I also would love to see a survival mode with the blue shambala guardians and/or the undead things from uncharted DF. But keep up the great work anyways!

  • Ooo this + MAG double XP sounds like a great way to kick off the summer! I’m gonna be busy all weekend. Love you Naughty Dog!

  • I smell a double cash weekened for the 4th of July

  • I cant say thank you enough for the continued support on this game. Its a shame I hate snipers but Ill play anyway

  • I guess I’ll get back into playing the game. I took a long break because I got tired of all the veteran players using glitches

  • Bad timing. My 40gb ps3 YLOD and my slim won’t arrive till Tuesday.

  • I’m not falling for this post…In the last 2 weekends sense the latest patch for UC2 disabled Double cash…I’ll be suprized if its really working but for right now I’m waiting to see what the heck happen the last to weekends double cash and why did patch 1.08 disable it?

  • hmmm it makes me want to come back play some coop lol

  • What’s the maximum level for multiplayer now for Uncharted 2? Any new rewards or unlocks? I would play if matches were more full… people have moved on. The game is nearing its end-of-the-line.

  • This is broken! I can’t login because it hangs. Then I quit game & it reboots my PS3. Twice now I can’t play The Lab!

  • i have trouble trying to conect to the multiplayer , and when it connects , the server kicks me out , and punishes me for leaving the match , with 40.000 aaagrrrhhrrhh.
