  • Players can enter a strike mission portal as a squad. Only the latest mission can have public instance, in which case the player will be placed in a new instance with up to 10 other players.
    • If a public mission starts with fewer than 10 players, it will be locked down and no more players will be able to join.
    • As of October 1, a public mission cannot start without 5 people.
    • If you choose to enter as a squad, you can start the mission before all have arrived in the instance or even in the squad itself.
    • You can use a raid squad or regular squad but only 10 can enter the instance.
  • By choosing public, members are placed into an instance but a squad is not automatically created.
    • If you exit and attempt to enter a new public mission you will be placed in the previous instance while it is still open.
  • Additional strike missions are planned to be included with new releases, with the old one sometimes evolving.
  • Rewards are once per day.
  • Upon its introduction during A Very Merry Wintersday in 2018, the Secret Lair of the Snowmen was referred to as a group instance as strike missions had not been officially introduced into the game yet.[2] Since its return in A Very Merry Wintersday in 2019, it is labeled as a strike mission.[1]
