Skirmish gives you a unique opportunity to play in general queue while using robots and weapons you don’t have and receive rewards!
This mode becomes available at level 19 and it usually runs on a weekly basis (not every week, though) for the duration of three days (Thursday - Sunday). The matchmaking in Skirmish is not based on the league system as in other modes: players from different leagues can be matched together.
You cannot play with the hangar you have but you can choose the setups prepared for you by Pixonic, just like Hangar X. Robot setups in Skirmish change over time to provide players with various game experience, and sometimes can be not normally possible in other game modes (for instance: Spectre with four Zeuses, or Galahad carrying three Embers at a time).
Here you can receive rewards (silver, experience) and honor points. However, skirmish matches do not have any effect on your:
Personal stats of your profile (max damage, win rate, etc.);
Tasks and tasks progress (unless stated otherwise).
At the moment squad battles are not available in this mode.
