The Battle that Never Was (Versus) Walkthrough
The Great War
Head to Pickett's Fort and look for the Pickett's Fort Curator at a picnic table. He'll tell you that a reenactment of the American Civil War is taking place there and then tells you to pick one of the two parties to side with. You can find the Union camp in the fort above the area you're currently in; the Confederate camp will be in the parking lot to your left.
When you pick a party, go over to the respective location marked on the map. Once you enter the space, you'll join the party and the guide will narrate you into battle. Follow the objective marker up to the Union camp and unleash your assault against the Union machines, on it.
The fight will mainly consist of taking on robots of the opposition camp, however, other players may also join the battle either as allies or foes. So the experience may vary, depending on who you go into it with.
Defeat all members of the opposing party to complete this event.
