- "First Order forces have trapped a group of Resistance fighters within the derelict hull of a crashed Star Destroyer in the desert of Jakku."
- — Star Wars Battlefront II website
The Resistance came to Jakku to purchase an old yet active Imperial droid within a crashed Star Destroyer from scavengers, but the First Order has found the Resistance and the Imperial droid and moved to intercept them. Resistance forces must buy time for the droid to be safely moved through the starship while the First Order pushes the Resistance back, capturing the Star Destroyer. In the first phase, First Order stormtroopers must take control of two capture points to secure a foothold.
If both capture points are secured, then the First Order pushes the Resistance back and must capture a single control point located deeper in the Star Destroyer in the second phase.
Should the control point fall to the First Order, then Resistance forces are pushed further back into the Star Destroyer where they must hold two control points, buying time for Resistance troops to deliver the droid to the back of the starship in the third phase.
If these two control points fall to the First Order, then the Resistance is pushed back to its last stand in the fourth phase, where they must defend their two transports to escape the Star Destroyer with the droid. The First Order must rig these two Resistance transports with explosives for detonation. If the First Order succeeds, then the Resistance is grounded with the Imperial droid and they win. If either of the two explosives fail to go off, then the Resistance is able to escape with the Imperial droid and wins.
