The Comeback Mechanic is a Gameplay Mechanic in Siege that gives the team, which is behind according to score, an advantage while capturing the Capture Point.

The Mechanic[edit | edit source]

Strong Comeback Mechanic[edit | edit source]

The strong comeback mechanic always occurs when a team is two point behind at the capture phase.
This team receives 4% per tick while capturing. The team in the lead receives 3% per tick.

Attenuated Comeback Mechanic[edit | edit source]

The attenuated comeback mechanic always occurs when a team is one point behind at the capture phase.
This team alternately receives 3% or 4% per tick while capturing. The team in the lead receives 3% per tick.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

After the first push[edit | edit source]

If the opponents captured the first objective (0:1) and now seem to push the payload through in the first round, then it would make more sense not to use ultimates to stop the opponents. Using the strong comeback mechanic (0:2) and the saved Ultimates the own team should capture the next capture point and get a chance to turn the fight with the earned knowledge about the opponents.

During the game[edit | edit source]

After your team has captured the point (2:3) and now seem to push through, then it would make more sense not to waste any ultimates. After the successful opponent's defense, the score is still 2:3 for the opponents. Using the comeback mechanic and the saved ultimates the own team should capture the next capture point (3:3) and can now try to win the game (4:3).

Outplay the enemy team with Credits adventages[edit | edit source]

Succesful taking the capture point gives the team a lot of credits. To make it clear, each teammate gets 300 Currency Credits.png credits for a successful capture. That makes 1,500 Currency Credits.png credits for the team's credits pool. Using these credits, the team can better adapt to the opposing team by buying items.
To increase the probability of a successful capture, a team can take advantage of the comeback mechanic. After the team is 0:2 behind, the comeback mechanic starts. If the team capture the second obejective, but doesn't make the conversion, the score is 1:3. The own team has still the full use of the Comeback mechanics and can take the point with high chance again (2:3). Depending on the course of the game, the payload can be pushed through or the weakened comeback mechanics can be used for the next piont fight.
