Search and Destroy is a multiplayer game mode featured in the Call of Duty series.

Rules

Call of Duty and United Offensive

  • 5 seconds to plant
  • 60 second fuse
  • 10 second defuse
  • First to win 7 rounds wins the match
  • Respawning is off

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, World at War , Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops .

  • 5-second arm time for bomb
  • 45-second fuse
  • 6-second defuse time (5-second defuse time in Modern Warfare 2)
  • First team to win 4 rounds wins the match
  • 150-second (2:30) time limit (CoD4 and MW2)
  • Respawning is off

These settings can all be changed in private matches.

Objective

At the beginning of a round one team is assigned as the attacking team while the other is assigned as the defending team. There is a bomb located close to where the attacking team spawns, which can only be carried by one player at a time. The bomb is dropped on the ground when the player carrying it is killed. The timer starts ticking as soon the round begins. The team that wins four rounds (or seven rounds in Call of Duty and United Offensive) first win the game.

After the first two rounds the two teams switch roles for another two rounds. If subsequent round(s) becomes necessary the two teams alternate roles for each round.

In CoD4 and MW2, after the first three rounds, the two teams switch roles, and is termed as "Halftime". If both teams are tied at 3 wins each (meaning, the second three rounds have passed), an "Overtime" will be called, the tie-breaker round. Teams may or may not switch roles during Overtime, depending on which team has more kills. The team with more kills defending.


Attacking team

Eliminate all enemies, or destroy an objective. Plant the bomb on one of two objectives, indicated by an A or B, then defend it until there is not enough time to defuse it. Note that the bomb can kill any nearby enemies, and the person who planted it. In the Hardcore Ricochet mode if a teammate is within the kill-radius of the explosion, and the player who planted is still living, if the bomb explodes it will kill the planter. If a player is able to plant the bomb at the last seconds of the given time limit, time is extended depending on the fuse time of the bomb (since the defending team has to defuse the bomb).

Defending team

Eliminate all enemies, let time run out, or defuse a planted bomb. Remember that it takes 5 seconds to defuse the bomb on stock settings. Even if all enemies are eliminated after the bomb is armed, the attackers can still win the round if the bomb explodes. Victory is achieved as soon as the bomb is defused regardless of how many attackers are still alive. Defusing the bomb is very loud, and can be heard from quite a distance. If no bomb sites are destroyed, the defending team wins if the time limit is reached regardless of how many defenders versus attackers are left alive. The defending team can also win if neither sites are bomb-planted within the time limit, and at least one defender is still alive.

  • Search and Destroy Victor I unlocks "Destroyer" title.
  • Search and Destroy Victor II unlocks "Explosive Ordinance" title.
  • Search and Destroy Victor III unlocks "Smiling Bomb" Emblem.

Glitches

  • A glitch that can occur in Modern Warfare 2 is when the player is planting the bomb, and a stun grenade goes off nearby, the player will have planted the bomb and yet still be "planting it". Though the player is able to walk about, the player is unable to use their weapons.
  • In Call of Duty 4 and World at War, by holding left bumper (or L1 for PS3) while interacting with the bomb, the player will instantly throw a C4/satchel charge immediately after the bomb has been planted or defused. However, this C4 cannot be detonated or shot, causing many players to label it a "fake C4/satchel charge".
  • A glitch similar to the stun grenade one can be achieved in Modern Warfare 2 when any equipment, besides the throwing knife, is used immediately after defusing or planting the bomb. It will cause the planter/defuser to walk while arming or disarming the bomb, until the change weapons button is used. This will have no effect on the bomb's position.
  • In Modern Warfare 2, when planting the bomb the player can lay a claymore and the bomb still continues to plant.
  • In Modern Warfare 2, if after planting the bomb the player immediately puts a claymore down the player will pick the bomb up again resulting in the player moving slower and being unable to use their weapons until the bomb is dropped.
  • A very awkward glitch in Modern Warfare 2 is when, if the player is still running away with the briefcase in his hand after planting (see above), the player may sometimes hit enemies with it, resulting in a knife kill.
  • Even though it is not a glitch and may be coincidence or easter egg, In Call Of Duty: Black Ops the code that is put into the bomb while planting is 115 repeated, This may be a reference to the element 115 used in the Zombies Story.

Trivia

Call of Duty and United Offensive

The bomb does 2000-1000 damage over a range of 500in.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

  • The crates that the bomb needs to be planted on seem to contain FIM-92 Stingers. The same thing goes with Sabotage.
  • The phone used to detonate bomb is VR phone (can be seen on poster), which is based off modified Motorola SLVR L7e.

Call of Duty: World at War

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

  • Defusing and planting the bomb shows the player repeatedly hitting the 2 and 3 keys. After planting the bomb, the player tosses it on the ground. Also after defusing the bomb, the player taps the case twice and keeps it.
  • In Modern Warfare 2, when the bomb is being defused the case can be heard opening at the beginning of the defusing. This is a good tactic since the player can just use his ears and not be in a position where he constantly looks at the bomb.
  • The bomb sites bear the Shadow Company insignia.
  • It takes 5.455 seconds from start to finish to plant or defuse the bomb.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

  • When planting and defusing the bomb, the player repeatedly presses the 1 button twice, and then the 5 button once. This number sequence is a reference to Element 115.
  • Rather than solely conventional explosives featured in other games, the briefcase contains both a bomb and two chemical agents which mix to make Nova 6. The briefcase also contains a radio which is tuned to 92.9 khZ or 93.0 khZ.

Miscellaneous

  • This mode becomes very popular on double XP weeks.
  • The game mode is very popular because of the seriousness taken by everyone given only one life and much XP can be earned.
  • Many people use the C4 Glitch, planting the C4 on the Bomb Crate after the bomb has been planted. It is very easy to do and widely known among Search and Destroy players.
  • If player lives are set to infinite, the players will always spawn within their team's designated spawn points.
  • The player respawns when playing this mode solo.
  • If the player dies with the bomb by falling to inaccessible zone, the bomb will appear at its original position.
