  • Has a duration of 15 minutes.
  • Grants break bar to the wielder.
  • If the wielder drops the banner either through being downed, using weapon swap or using a trap, the banner is lost (and you have to wait until the tactivator is recharged to get a new one). The banner is also lost when changing equipment.
  • The banner is not lost by entering water, resurrecting someone, gliding or using a mount.
  • The banner is restricted to the general area around the objective it is spawned in. Leaving the objective area while carrying the banner will display a warning message, and failing to return to the objective area within the allocated time will destroy it.


  • Prior to the November 17, 2020 game update, the banner could be used on the whole map without any restriction.
