REMINDER: The Lab – Sniper Extermination

REMINDER: The Lab – Sniper Extermination

Welcome back to "The Lab" -- our second episode in 2011 features the return of Sniper Extermination.

January 27, 2011

Welcome to our second episode of "The Lab" in 2011! As the studio continues to work hard on UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, "The Lab" will spend the next months revisiting some of the best and most popular episodes from 2010. 

"The Lab" is open from Friday, January 28, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, January 31, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?). 

For this episode of "The Lab" we're bringing back a community favorite gametype variation from a very long time ago - June 2010 to be exact - with Sniper Extermination. All players will be equipped with only Dragon Sniper rifles - NO sidearms - as you play through this variation of the Elimination gametype. You've 99 bullets but only one life each round, and the first team to completely exterminate all players on the other team wins the round. Best of five rounds wins the match. Stick behind cover as much as possible, and take your shots carefully, as the range and power of the Dragon Sniper in capable hands can make quick work out of an exposed opponent. Speaking of cover, Boosters are not active in Sniper Extermination - it just won't be fair to use a Booster to know where everybody is hiding!

The active maps for this weekend of "The Lab" are:

  • The Lost City
  • The Plaza
  • The Temple
  • The Train Wreck

    We'll be opening a brand new Sniper Extermination discussion thread on the Naughty Dog community forums at about the same time The Lab starts this weekend. Whether this is your first time with No Power Weapons or your fourth, we've love to hear your thoughts after you've had a chance to play a few rounds!
