Multiplayer Game Modes:
Push --- Three territorial objectives must be captured by the attacking team in sequential order. For each objective captured, they gain more reinforcement and time to attack the next. Defenders have a finite amount of reinforcements and must use each wisely. Once the third objective is captured by the attackers, a fourth cache objective must be destroyed, while the defenders have only one life to make a last stand.
Firefight --- Three territorial objectives, one for each team, plus one neutral. Each team only respawns when they secure an objective. Secure all objectives or eliminate all enemy to win. Every life counts, making this a very suspenseful experience dependent upon teamwork.
Skirmish --- In addition to three territorial objectives, each team has a supply cache to protect. Teams gain extra reinforcement waves until their cache is destroyed. When both teams have lost their caches and all reinforcement waves, it becomes a Firefight match.
Occupy --- There is one central territorial objective in the area. The team that controls it does not deplete reinforcement waves. This gameplay in this mode is reminiscent to King of the Hill or "tug of war".
Ambush --- A high value target ("HVT") must be escorted to an extraction point. It's one team's goal to make this happen and it's the other team's goal to stop this from happening at all costs. The HVT is only armed with a silenced pistol, but can pick up a weapon from a fallen enemy or teammate.
Strike --- Three weapon caches must be destroyed by the attacking team to achieve victory. Destroying a cache earns the attackers more reinforcements and time on the clock. The defenders must retain at least one cache from being destroyed and eliminate the enemy team once their reinforcements run dry.
Infiltrate --- The standard Capture the Flag mode, but with a twist. Your team's goal is to take the enemy's intel and return it to your base. Your team will only gain reinforcements when someone takes the enemy's intel, or when an enemy stealing your team's intel is neutralized. This mode requires very strong team coordination and strategy.
Flashpoint --- One neutral territorial objective and two caches on each side. The goal is to secure the entire area, controlling the middle and destroying the enemy's caches. Your team respawns when they secure the territorial objective or destroy a cache objective.
Elimination --- In this single life mode, attackers must destroy one of two weapon caches, or eliminate the enemy team within the time limit. Defenders must kill all attackers.
Cooperative Game Modes:
Checkpoint --- Complete mission-based objectives in sequence against AI enemy. Each successful objective will respawn anyone who was eliminated along the way.
Hunt --- Insurgents are dispersed in the environment, and your squad must eliminate all targets while locating and destroying the weapons cache. High on tension, with only one-life.
Survival --- Play as Insurgents and fight against endless waves of progressively difficult Security enemies on night themed maps. Reaching safehouse objectives with your team earns you supply to purchase better weapons and spawns any dead teammates.
Outpost --- Defend your supply cache against endless waves of enemy trying to destroy it. Each successfully defended wave will bring in reinforcements of your teammates.
Conquer --- Capture the objectives in the area and defend them from enemy trying to retake them. Destroy enemy weapon caches to thin out their numbers.

Insurgency is simple but polished; two teams, the Security Forces and Insurgents fight towards a particular objective and asymmetrical weapons and equipment. For a Source Engine game, it looks pretty good but this game is really pushing the limits of the Source Engine and performance is not as good as CS:GO for example. The gameplay and shooting mechanics are responsive and punishes reckless run-and-gun. You start with a certain amount of points which you spend to choose your loadout. You can accessorize your gun to have a lot of attachments but not wear armor or bring grenades or you can have a bare bones gun but bring a lot of grenades or rockets and so on. It's a simple system that works well and bring surprising amount of variety to fights. For the price, and for how often it goes on sale to $2, it's worth a buy for any fans of tactical FPS's.
Insurgency is a fun fast-paced realistic game that started as an indie, and now, is one of the best tactical shooter in the market. Offering an arcade controllers with realistic maps, weapons, customisable, gameplay and more, Insurgency is the middle point where you can test your skills against AI or real opponents in a match with big maps and a variety of weapons and class to choose according to you game style. It's even better is you can coordinate with your team using mic or team chat. Recommended.
If you're looking for a game which goes for the "one shot, one kill" policy, look no further. If you're looking for a game that is atrociously difficult, look no further. If you're looking for numerous gamemodes, fast paced combat, and adrenaline rush in battle, look no further. If you're looking for refreshing gameplay, with reliance on objective based gameplay, look no further. If you're looking for all of this, with a jokingly low price, for a game that competes with Triple A titles,
Insurgency is an FPS with a bit more realism than most games but a more fast paced and arcade like feeling than something like the ARMA series, giving you a good middle ground. The game has larger maps with a variety of choke points and the game requires more tactical play instead of running around as a lone wolf. The game runs well and doesn't need a powerful PC to play. Free content has been added to the game throughout its life giving you a large amount of content for the low price.
I got this game on sale, and I have to say even if it wasn't on sale this game would still be worth it! This game really is great for team play and tactics, it is very hard to "lone wolf" in this game without getting killed by the enemy who is working together. I love this game and if you are into realistic, team-based, shooters this one is definitely for you!
