1 Teams fight off to find the pigeon
Two teams fight off searching for the pigeon. The pigeon's location rotates around the maps.
2 One team catches the pigeon
The objective is to capture the pigeon and stay alive long enough to write a message.
3 The other team tries to catch it
The other team members try to catch the carrier. Usually, it's a close quarters match because both teams follow the carrier.
4 The carrier can be killed
If the enemy team kills the carrier and catches the pigeon fast enough, they would be the ones in possession of the pigeon.
5 The carrier sends the pigeon
The carrier sends the pigeon if they manage to survive. The pigeon can easily die if the enemy shoots it. (See Why Battlefield 1 is critically acclaimed?)
6 The message is delivered
One team delivers the message through the pigeon and artillery strikes on enemy locations.
7 3 messages have to be delivered
One team has to send the message three times in order to win the match.
8 War Pigeons is close-quarters
War Pigeons is a close quarters match-up similar to Domination. Assault and Support classes work best with it. (See Why are mobile games popular?)
