To achieve this he must conquer 20 different locations and protect them from his enemies. The leader can choose between 250 different items like, weapons, armor, building materials and food. There are 4 different professions: Mercenary, Technician, Doctor and Hunter.

The Mercenary can use all possible weapons whereas the Technician is able to build a lot of useful tools like rat traps, radio equipment and water pumps from objects found during the mission. The Hunter is responsible for the fitness and health of the troops. Thanks to the different abilities the team gains experience and improves.
