The Extraction Shooter tag refers to a subgenre of first-person shooter (FPS) games that focus on a specific gameplay objective: extraction. In these games, players are typically part of an elite team or military unit tasked with extracting an important person, object, or securing a specific location amidst challenging and hostile environments.

The core gameplay mechanics in Extraction Shooter titles revolve around strategic planning, teamwork, and intense combat scenarios. The primary objective is to successfully complete the extraction mission while facing waves of enemy forces or navigating complex obstacles.

Here are some features and characteristics commonly associated with Extraction Shooters:

  • Mission-Based Gameplay Extraction Shooters typically feature missions or levels that require players to navigate through hostile territory in order to reach the target extraction point. These missions often have multiple objectives along the way, such as clearing out enemies, disabling security systems, or recovering key items.
  • Tactical Combat Due to the nature of extraction missions involving high stakes and dangerous situations, tactical combat mechanics play a crucial role in these games. Players may need to coordinate their movements, use cover effectively, employ strategic approaches (such as stealth), and make use of available resources like gadgets or specialized equipment.
  • Teamwork Teamwork is often emphasized in Extraction Shooters as they encourage cooperative play. Players may work together by assigning roles within their squad (such as sniper, medic) and coordinating their actions for maximum efficiency during extractions.
  • Risk vs Reward Extraction Shooters sometimes introduce risk/reward mechanics where players must decide whether to take additional risks for potential bonuses or rewards during the mission or play it safe and minimize potential losses. These decisions can have an impact on the outcome of the extraction.

Some examples of Extraction Shooter games include:

  • Rainbow Six Siege This multiplayer-focused game by Ubisoft is known for its intense tactical gameplay, where teams compete in objectives such as extracting a hostage, defusing a bomb, or securing an area.
  • PAYDAY 2 In this cooperative heist-based shooter, players plan and execute elaborate robberies that often involve extractions while dealing with law enforcement and rival criminals.
  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint Players assume the role of elite soldiers in this open-world tactical shooter who must navigate a fictional island filled with hostile forces while conducting various extraction missions.

The Extraction Shooter genre provides an immersive and challenging experience for players who enjoy teamwork, strategic planning, and high-octane combat scenarios focused on successfully completing crucial extraction missions.
