In Summary

As RedWolf highlights on his video, Galactic Assault can be daunting to new players. Knowing and understanding the different types of objectives and how to accomplish them is vital. The four types of objectives that are showcased in the video require different types of strategies and tactics to use.

It’s also important to understand that playing the objective will not yield a lot of kills for you. Quite the opposite actually. As Red Wolf indicates you will die a lot. Playing the objective will give you, however, a lot of battle points for you which in turn you can convert to credits. In some cases, it’s counter-intuitive to think that going for the objective and not for the kills will give you more points. In some ways, that’s DICE’s way of forcing players to play as a team instead of individual units. Once you understand, it becomes very easy to get a lot of points while helping the team secure a win.
