The Soldier

A Mann vs. Machine mission is a pre-set wave of robots that occur on a Mann vs. Machine map. Added in the update of the same name they are classified by difficulty in five levels, namely Normal (the easiest), Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, and Nightmare (the hardest).

Each level additionally can be modified by its "Challenge mode" which comes in two types: Invasion, where there are many (usually 6 to 8) but shorter waves of robots, and Endurance, where the waves are fewer, but much longer - to compensate, players start with more money, and the bomb resets itself after a time, similar to the briefcase in Capture the Flag.

All missions are available in both Boot Camp and Mann Up modes; on the latter some of them can be part of a Tour of Duty, which requires a ticket to participate and, upon completion, may award exclusive items such as a Botkiller weapon or a cosmetic item.
