This gameplay mode is like multi-flag CTF. There are 4 energy cores scattered around the map, generally positioned in the centre or between the 2 teams’ main bases. Each team has a Reactor where Energy Cores are taken to score points.
In the screen shot above you can see 2 Energy Cores positioned on a Eucadian bridge. Bringing these Cores back to your team’s reactor will score points for your team, and you can carry more than one Core at a time.
The scoring system is progressive, so if you score just one Core, your team gets one point. Two Cores will score three points. Three Cores are good for six points and, if you manage to work as a team and bring all 4 Cores back to the Reactor at once, then your team scores a whopping 10 points.
As you can see in the screenshot below, the Cores are displayed on your character and the more you are carrying, the more you see whirling and orbiting around you. You’ll also see them on the mini-map as pulsing energy symbols. The score is displayed in the upper right corner as usual, but there is a new display for Collection Mode. It’s the little yellow number that shows you how many Cores your team currently is currently carrying. This is critical for knowing where your focus should be; offense or defence.
Tip: you can press the triangle button to throw the Cores you are carrying; passing Cores among your team is super effective :-)
