A Tour of Duty is a collection of missions that may span multiple maps in Mann vs. Machine official servers[1]. Released in the relative update, they are available only on servers which run Mann Up Mode; a Tour of Duty Ticket is required to participate in a Tour of Duty. Squad Surplus Vouchers can be used as well.

Depending on the tour, completing one mission grants a player an Operation badge: starting at level 1, these badges track in their description the stat of the subsequent missions completed which belong to their Tour of Duty. Once a Tour of Duty is completed, its level increases by 1, to complete a full Tour of Duty a player must complete all missions under the same specific Operation.

Also, completing a Tour of Duty grants a player tour-specific rewards, usually in the form of Botkiller weapons: Rust and Blood are granted from Operation Oil Spill, Silver and Gold Mk.I weapons are granted from Operation Steel Trap, Silver and Gold Mk.II weapons are granted from Operation Mecha Engine, and Carbonado and Diamond are granted from Operation Gear Grinder. The Blood, Gold, and Diamond Botkiller weapons are less likely to drop than their counterparts. Australium weapons are granted from any Advanced or Expert tour (Operation Steel Trap, Operation Mecha Engine, Operation Two Cities, Operation Gear Grinder), while Killstreak Kits and Killstreak Kit Fabricators are only rewarded in Operation Two Cities. All Australium weapons received are Strange quality.
