In Assimilation one player starts out as a Cloven, the other seven are Maquis. The Cloven player has to hunt down the remaining Maquis. The Maquis cannot permanently kill the cloven. Any Maquis killed by the Cloven become Cloven when they respawn. The Maquis's objective is to survive within a time limit, and they win if at least one Maquis survives. The Cloven's objective is to kill all Maquis within a time limit, and they win if they do so. This game mode was only featured in Resistance: Retribution.
