As of patch 1.6x there are 5 warzones:
- Huttball - Similar in concept to rugby/soccer, get the ball from the center of the map and take it over the enemies line to score, first to 6 goals wins, or after 15 minute time limit a team will be declared a winner (either for scoring more, or possession of the ball in the final moments)
- Alderaan Civil War - A three-tower game where both factions wrestle for control of three gun batteries in order to bring down the opposing team's dropship.
- Voidstar - Voidstar is a round-based Warzone that takes place on a derelict Imperial Battle Cruiser lost during the Great War. An attack and defend map.
Novare Coast- Very similar to the Alderaan Civil War. A three-tower game where both factions fight for the gun batteries to destroy the opposing team's outpost and gain advantage in the war.
Ancient Hypergate- Elite forces from both sides fight for control of the ancient gree hypergates.
