Domination is a Game Mode that is available in both Blacklight games.
Domination in Blacklight: RetributionEdit
In Blacklight: Retribution, the Domination mode features three nodes on a map that players can capture for their team. To capture a node, players must walk up to the node and perform a Hack. Successfully hacking a node will immediately transfer control to your team. Nodes can also be captured by standing near them, but this takes longer. Controlled nodes will generate 1 point per second for your team, unless an enemy is standing next to them (e.g. hacking it).
All nodes and their current ownership for either team are visible throughout the map, so that players can react immediately when a node owned by their team is under attack.
Certain events specific to the Domination mode will grant additional combat points.
|Hacked Node||200||Capture a node by successfully hacking it.|
|Captured Node||250||Capture a node by standing near it.|
|Node Capture Assist||150||Stand near a node while a teammate captures it.|
|Attacked node||100||Kill an enemy agent standing near a hostile-controlled node.|
|Defended node||100||Kill an enemy agent while standing near a friendly-controlled node.|
|Hold point||10||Given for every 10 points earned by your team's controlled nodes. No message or other notification in-game.|
Domination in Blacklight: Tango DownEdit
There are two ways to take over a control point in Domination - either stand in the vicinity of the control point and wait for the takeover animation to complete or hack the station. Keep in mind that if you are taking over a control point via the first method, increasing the number of players in the vicinity of the control point increases the speed it is taken over.
Hacking requires the player to successfully complete a mini-game to accomplish the hack. To hack a control point, walk up to it and hit the button sequence as prompted on-screen. Repeat the pattern as it is shown using either the directional pad or the face buttons on a control pad. On the PC, users will have to repeat the pattern by clicking on each the four quadrants with the mouse.
A control point cannot be captured if it is in a contested state - which is when two or more players on opposite teams are near it and/or fighting over it.
