Just like Mercenaries Mode in previous titles, Revelations features Raid Mode, which has one to two players fight off different waves of enemies while trying to reach a goal.
Basic Gameplay Rules
After selecting a character and map, the player will be dropped into a location with the goal is to reach the BSAA emblem while fighting off enemies.
After completing the stage, players receives BP, EXP for leveling up, a rank and bonuses, if they finished the stage with the requirements of the bonus.
BP & Levels
As the player completes stages, gaining BP and EXP for leveling, they can purchase new weapons, ammo or upgrades.
The higher the level of the character, the higher the weapons damage and player defenses. When equipping weapons, players must have a level equal to or higher than the weapon level, otherwise that weapon canned be used.
The stage is cleared when the player reaches the end and melee attacks the gold BSAA emblem. At the end of each round, players will be awarded a rank, bonuses, BP, EXP, and shown what items they have picked up.
The player's ranks and amount of BP and EXP earned is based on their performance in the following fields:
- Enemies (Number of enemies killed)
- Damage (Amount of damage the player received)
- Clear Time
The follow bonuses can also be earned for extra BP:
