Gameplay[ | ]

The goal of Winter Express is capturing the Train or killing everyone.

  • The Train stops at a Station each Round.
    • The available Stations in order are: Capitol City, Fool's Gulch, Refinery, Derailment, and the area outside the tunnel located after Derailment.
  • The whole Train functions as a control point, which must be boarded to start capturing it. Capturing the Train, or killing every enemy player so that no one can contest the capture, yields 1 point. Once a point is scored, the Round ends and a new one begins.
    • Capturing the Train takes 10 seconds, if uncontested.
  • Whenever a Round starts, a team spawns on the Train while the other two teams spawn on a Dropship near the Station.
    • Players launching from the Dropship will start skydiving.
    • In the first Round, the Champions spawn on the Train.
    • In the subsequent Rounds, the latest team that scored a point spawns on the Train. Dead teammates are also respawned there.
  • Players can choose between five different weapon Loadouts, which vary according to the Loadout's name. All Loadouts will also have one type of ordnance.
    • All weapons are Fully Kitted and range between Common, Rare, and epic, depending on the Loadout. Optics can be removed and/or replaced, but not in the Loadout selection.
    • Loadouts can be changed at any point during the match, but only while the player is awaiting respawn.
    • The available Loadouts cycle every 15 minutes, but only after a new match is started.
  • A Round lasts 90 seconds.
    • The countdown starts when the Train stops at a Station.
    • If a point isn't awarded after 60 seconds, Overtime begins, where only the middle section of the Train functions as a control point instead of the whole Train.
    • If a point isn't awarded after 90 seconds, the Round ends in a tie and a new one begins.
  • Scattered on the Train rails are some launching platforms, which send whoever crosses them into the air, allowing them to skydive to a location of choice.
  • Unlimited Weapon Ammo.
