Skirmish is a game mode introduced in Update 1.8: Resistance. Skirmish also appears in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.


This game mode is the game's only true PvP mode with no NPCs or enemies in play besides the opposing team. It is a 4v4, Team Deathmatch style PvP game mode, pitting 2 teams of 4 in a race to get 20 kills first.

This mode plays like the Dark Zone, in that players that receive fatal damage are downed first, and must be finished with a melee attack, or by shooting the downed enemy until they die. Points in this mode are added for killed enemies, not downed enemies, meaning if a player is revived, the point for them going down is not counted.

The experience system for this mode is shared with Last Stand, and is now called PvP Rank.
