In Descent Underground each map will have a goal and/or timer.
- Anarchy - Classic Descent combat where your only goal is to crush your opponents. Choose 1 vs 1, team matches, or free-for-all.
- Capture The Asteroid – Secure and defend five strategic beacons in the asteroid.
- Corporate War – Mine resources and ferry them to your harvester. The first to reach their mining quota wins.
- Deathmatch Destruction – Kill all your enemies' drones before they destroy yours.
- Mining For Minerals – Find and mine a special resource and return it to your harvester. But, watch out! If you drop the “ball,” your enemy will swoop in and snatch it away.
