Build & Battle is a technology in the story and a gameplay mechanic that allows players to buy one of a variety of structures and set it down anywhere on the battlefield in real time. Build & battle allows constantly changing gameplay across the maps by allowing players to customize the battlefield and the team's tools, rewarding strategic play and creating distinct play styles.
Build & Battle structures are selected from the Build & Battle Menu, placed, and launched out of low orbit onto the battlefield. All structures cost Rift Energy, which is the in-game currency. Structures instantly crush and kill any enemy unit below it when it lands, then procedes to quickly build itself from the ground up.
In the Single-player campaign, Emmett Graves and his gear-man, Sidney Cutter develop the technology for Build & Battle. They use this technology to save Rift Claims from Outcast war bands.
In multiplayer, all 32 players can call down structures with the Build & Battle system. The Build Limit for each team is 32, meaning that there is a maximun of 64 structures in each match.
- The Build & Battle menu can be accessed anywhere, even when inside a vehicle.
