Red Faction Armageddon Game Guide: Infestation Mode Missions

Infestation is a playing mode included in Red Faction: Armageddon, the video game developed by Volition, Inc. for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

This mode includes sixteen missions which can be divided in two categories, based on the objectives that must be completed by players.

The first category is known as Survival Missions. Players are asked to survive the alien attacks, and these assaults will come in waves.

Each wave has a fixed amount of enemies and there are 30 waves in each mission. Players are allowed to change the difficulty setting of the mission they want to play, as well as the starting wave.

The Red Faction: Armageddon Survival Missions included in the Infestation mode are: Black MarketTrappedHeretic and Extermination.

The second category of Infestation missions is known as Defending Missions. In these missions, players will have to defeat the alien waves and to protect several structures at the same time.

If the structures are destroyed during the alien attacks, the mission ends.

There are four different Defending Missions that can be played in Red Faction: Armageddon, in the Infestation Mode, and these are: MeltdownPressureDust to Dust and Harvest.

Every map (mission) presented above, can also be played during night, but in this case the name of the mission includes the DARK termination (Example: Black Market DARK).

These maps must be unlocked.

Our guide below offers the full list of Infestation missions that can be accessed by players in Red Faction: Armageddon, as well as their “in-game” descriptions.
