Battlefield 5 Conquest Mode

Just in case you're new to the Battlefield series in general, Conquest is the name of the 'capture the flag'-type mode for Battlefield 5. There are always six control points on every map for the mode, and Conquest typically only takes place on the biggest maps in the game, like Arras or Twisted Steel.

How to Win Conquest in Battlefield 5

Basically, it's a race between two teams of 32 players to capture and hold the most Conquest points on the map. To capture a Conquest point, you simply need to be in the general vicinity of the Conquest point on the map, but the closer you stand to the flag at the center of the point, the quicker you'll capture it for your team.

If you're in the area of a Conquest point in Battlefield 5, you'll see the letter of the point appear in the middle of the screen. But you'll want to note the small horizontal bar just underneath this letter, which determines if there are any enemy soldiers on the point at the same time. If there's any red in this bar, it means an enemy soldier is nearby, so prepare to meet some resistance pretty soon.

On top of this, you can only capture the Conquest point if your team (blue) fills more of the bar underneath the letter than the opposing team (red). For example, it's impossible to capture a Conquest point if you're attacking it by yourself, and there are two enemy players waiting on the point to defend it. In other words, teamwork makes the dream work.

Battlefield 5 Conquest Tips

Just below, we'll run over some of the additional rules you need to know when playing Conquest in Battlefield 5.

  • Both teams start with 600 points (or tickets) in total.
  • Tickets are lost when a player on that team dies, or when the opposing team holds all Conquest points on the map.
  • The first team to have their tickets reduced to 0 loses the match of Conquest.
  • Speed is the key to winning Conquest, and you'll want to hop in vehicles at the start of the game, and rush to the nearest Conquest points ahead of you.
  • Always spawn on the Conquest points that are furthest up the map. There's no point spawning at the back Conquest point near where you started the game.
  • Take advantage of tanks when they're available. A tank can turn the tide in capturing a Conquest point, counting for at least three soldiers.
