Assassination is a victory condition, or game mode, where the defeat of only the enemy's ACU is required for victory. This is generally the quickest game mode, and will usually be the easiest to complete, because it only requires the death of all enemy ACUs. This is a good game mode for some of the larger maps, like Fields of Isis and Seton's Clutch.
- Under the Assassination victory condition sending land units on suicide attacks at enemy commanders can be very effective in quickly eliminating an enemy and his forces.This also works with bombers when you have multiple commanders to deal with and it is easier when there are more difficult AIs or smart players. Broadswords are extremely effective at this tactic as they deal more damage than bombers in the time that they are exposed.
