Kessel Extraction

Extraction is a 16 player game mode in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II that involves a Rebel team attempting to extract a precious shipment while Imperial forces try to stop them.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

"We need to get the shipment safely to the extraction point. Stay close to it and keep it moving."
— Rebel announcer

OverviewEdit

The Rebels must escort the shipment through three checkpoints, labelled A, B, and C, before time runs out. The match timer starts with five minutes, with additional time being added after reaching a checkpoint.

The Imperials must try to prevent the shipment from reaching the final checkpoint, Checkpoint C. At the start of the match, the shipment tram is deactivated. If the Rebels activate the tram (done so by interacting with one of the tram buttons), the shipment begins moving. If the Imperials deactivate the tram (done in a similar way), the shipment stops moving until the Rebels can reactivate the tram. If time runs out while the shipment is still moving, the game runs into overtime until the shipment reaches another checkpoint or the tram is stopped by the Empire.

The ability to play as heroes is rewarded after passing through certain checkpoints. For the Rebels, a hero pick-up spawns at the beginning of the match and after passing through Checkpoint A. For the Empire, a hero pick-up spawns after the Rebels pass through Checkpoints B and C. Two heroes from each side can be on the field at once, a total of four heroes potentially on the field.

The Imperials receive a bonus score at the end of the match if they stop the shipment before the last checkpoint. The earlier the checkpoint, the higher the bonus score. If the Rebels reach Checkpoint C, a cutscene plays with a Rebel transport taking off.

Extraction was added as part of the Outer Rim Update and can be played by those who own the Outer Rim expansion pack.

Star Wars Battlefront IIEdit

OverviewEdit

Extraction in Star Wars Battlefront II was added as part of Han Solo Season Season Update 2. It is very similar to the Extraction mode featured in the previous game. The Rebels must escort a shipment through three checkpoints within a certain amount of time, starting with five minutes, eventually reaching the final extraction point, while the Galactic Empire must try and stop them.

Unlike in the previous game, each time the shipment reaches a checkpoint, the clock resets to five minutes, rather than adding an additional five minutes. Also, movement of the shipment is no longer based on activating or deactivating the shipment tram via buttons, but instead players' proximity to it. To begin movement of the shipment, the Rebel team must stand next to it. In order to stop the shipment, the Imperials must eliminate every Rebel standing by it. If Rebels and Imperials are fighting around the shipment, it is considered contested but remains in place. If the shipment is contested when time runs out, the game goes into overtime and remains so until one faction is in complete control of the tram.

This mode also differs from its predecessor in that heroes are no longer present, though special units are available to use with Battle Points.
