Aliens Fireteam Elite is a fun and entertaining game, more so when you’re playing with human partners who listen to you. But that aside, when you fire up the game, you may have noticed that in addition to the campaign more, there’s a Horde Mode as well. However, despite trying to access it, it remains locked.

So how do you access the Horde Mode? Well, that’s why you’re here, isn’t it?


How do you unlock the Horde Mode in Aliens Fireteam Elite?

Well, there’s no trick to unlocking the Horde Mode, actually. You have to complete all four missions and their acts to gain access. That’s it. Once you do, the Horde Mode will become unlocked, and you’ll be able to challenge all sorts of swarming Xenomorphs as they charge you repeatedly.

To make things easier, I recommend changing the campaign difficulty to casual. Doing this will make the game that much easier for you. Especially if you’re playing solo are stuck with those lovely bots, Alpha and Beta. Either way, once all the story mode is exhausted,  Horde Mode will be unlocked.
