Headquarter mode is similar to Hardpoint, where teams have to capture and hold certain areas of the map to earn points. It is a 5v5 mode where teams have to fight for control of a single headquarters (HQ) that spawns randomly on the map. The HQ will spawn in 10 seconds after the game begins, and it will be marked by a yellow circle on the mini-map. The first team to reach the HQ and stay in the location for a few seconds will capture it and start earning points.

However, once a team captures the HQ, they will not be able to respawn until the HQ is destroyed by the enemy team. The enemy team will have unlimited respawns, and they will have to destroy the HQ as soon as possible by killing all the defenders or depleting its health bar. The HQ cannot be recaptured by either team once it is destroyed; instead, a new HQ will spawn in another location after a short delay.

The first team to earn 100 points by holding the HQ will win the match. If neither team reaches 100 points within the time limit, the team with the higher score will win.

Unlike Hardpoint, where teams can capture and recapture multiple points on the map, Headquarters only allows one point to be captured at a time, and it cannot be taken back once it is destroyed. This means that teams have to be more careful about when and how they capture the HQ, as well as how they defend it or attack it.
