The Finals is adding a new 5v5 ranked game mode called Terminal Attack where teams take turns attacking and defending a target.

It is a best-of-7 game mode, so the margin of error is minimal. The teams are provided either the Attacker or Defender side at the start of the map.

The role of the Attackers is to deliver the Decryption Key to one of the terminals and ensure the transfer is complete. At the same time, the Defenders have to prevent the Attacking team from completing their mission by defending the terminal.
