Annihilation is a game mode where eight Tenno face off against each other. The Tenno must battle each other and defeat them in a confrontation in order to retrieve their Oro, eliminating it. To complicate matters, faster Tenno can also steal an unclaimed Oro (even if they are attracted) and eliminate it to score a point for themselves. A Tenno can also reclaim their lost Oro if the orbs remain unclaimed by their opponent. The match is decided by the numbers of successful elimination, with the first Tenno to reach 25 eliminations declared the winner. The match can also end if a Tenno has the most Oro after the time has ended (if two Tenno combatants have the same amount of Oro, the combatant with the most kills will be the winner).
Energy and Health stations are scattered around to spawn energy and health orbs at preset locations around the map occasionally, giving 25 energy/health to those who collected it. If Energy Surge has been initiated, energy stations will give 50 energy instead. Orb stations and ammo boxes, after being picked up, will respawn after thirty seconds.
Energy Surge of the Annihilation mode will be initiated if the match has reached to 2 minutes and 30 seconds without conclusions, or if a player has accumulated a score of 20 in the match. Once initiated, all energy stations will then immediately spawn energy orbs that grants Tenno 50 energy instead of 25. All empty energy stations will also be resupplied with energy orbs.
There are currently 14 maps for Annihilation.
