Squads also features a horde-like survival mode for four players called Safeguard, which pits you against waves of incoming enemies.

The other new mode in Call of Duty: Ghosts is Blitz. Players shoot and kill countless human enemies using a vast arsenal of rifles, handguns, machine guns, and rocket launchers in this gritty, realistic, near-future military shooter.
