Operation Monarch

This is a 60-player match with a Resurgence rule set. A smaller section of Caldera will be marked for the first safe area, and outside of one massive twist, the rules are simple: Be the last team standing.

Key Gameplay Elements:

The one and only Godzilla.
  • Environmental Hazard: Titans
    • Kong and Godzilla will patrol Caldera for the duration of the match directing attacks at threats and occasionally entering a frenzied state.
Kong entering a Titan Frenzy.
  • Public Event: Titan Frenzy
    • Kong and Godzilla may become enraged and recklessly attack – referred to as a Titan Frenzy. Operators have two options:
      (1) tactically run away from these dangerous creatures or,
      (2) attempt to suppress them by dealing direct damage
      The squad that deals the most damage to either Titan will automatically receive a S.C.R.E.A.M. Device. Runners-up will still earn Monarch Intel to count toward their special intel meter, whose final reward is a S.C.R.E.A.M. Device. 
Operation Monarch loot crate.
  • Resource: Monarch Intel
    • Players will find Monarch Intel via Supply Boxes, special drops, and fallen enemies. Use this to charge a special meter that unlocks items such as Killstreaks and Loadout Drops, along with a unique and powerful Titan Killstreak reward for filling it up completely.
Player using the SCREAM Device.
  • Killstreak: S.C.R.E.A.M. Device
    Titan Sonic Communication Radar and Echolocation Array Module
    • The S.C.R.E.A.M. Device is a Killstreak that grants its user one of two powers from the Titans: a heat ray breath from Godzilla or a ground pound from Kong. Once the attack type is chosen, the Operator can direct it toward anywhere on Caldera.
