The Airstrike Designator-LGB (Laser Guided Bomb) is an Operative item that was released in the 09-29-09 Patch.


The Airstrike Designator's purpose is simple: it places a marker on a designated target, which is used to guide an incoming strike plane. The target directs the plane to release a very powerful bomb (with a wide blast radius) within range of the marker. Prior to attack, a beeping sound and a notification informing of an imminent strike is delivered to every player in the room, regardless of teams.

To assist with aiming, the Designator also has a scope, in case a player wants to position a strike from a distance.

  • The Airstrike Designator - LGB seems to have replaced the SA 18.
  • There is actually a glitch with the airstrike on Showdown. If you call in the air strike in the base with the giant hole (beneath it) the bomb will actually go through the roof, and explode inside the base.
  • Players affected by the Airstrike Designator - LGB will have their screen go black due to incompatible graphics cards that are incapable of dealing with orange screen flashes.
