    Lets start off with some clarification. "Total Control" is the name of the game type which can only be played in Big Team Battle in which 3 areas/zones labeled A, B, and C spawns somewhere on the map and your team has to control all 3 zones to gain 1 point (for a total of 3 to win) and then they spawn again somewhere else. The "Total Control" game mode can be easily be confused for "Strongholds" (A 4v4 game type) which your team has to control 2 of the 3 zones to start accumulating points for a total of 200 to win.

    Zones A, B, and C start off neutral and your team has to capture all 3 areas to gain a point, and you must assist in capturing all 3 zones to gain this achievement. In by assisting you must be inside the zone and help capture and it does not matter how long or if you were inside when your team got the zone as long as you helped. If the enemy team takes back a point you probably have to help take it back so it counts again. I don't think you need to do this in one life as when I was helping capture the last zone I died but my team got the capture and the score and I got the achievement afterwards.

    A tip I can give is stick close to your team when they start pushing for the objectives so you can be there to assist in the capture of the point. You don’t want your team getting the zone when you didn’t help capture because remember you need to assist in capturing A, B, and C. But it’s most likely that it will happen, but again it’s gonna be a back and forth game most of the time. The zones that you didn’t help get but the enemy got you can help get it back so you get the assist for that zone.

    If your lucky and have a good team you may be able to snowball the objectives via getting zone A to B to C or vise versa, and it will definitely help if some people stayed and defended (not you though) the already captured zones just in case.

    So apparently the achievement might be a bit buggy. You may be able to get it if you helped assist all zones at some point but it not leading to a total control for the score.

    Correct me if I got some things wrong, hope this helped or clarified things for you guys!

    BiggDopeI can also confirm that this is a bit buggy in a beneficial way.

    I helped capture A, then B, but we lost A. I still went on to capture C and got the achievement despite my team not necessarily earning the point since A was taken.

    So I think it's either bugged in a good way, or the description is being misunderstood and all that's require if for you to help capture all three zones in a single cycle of them being active.

    Jameson LockeI'm guessing the achievement description is wrong? As the description doesn't include matchmaking in the description.

    Stevo6483Also got this unexpectedly. I had captured A which we lost to the enemy but towards the end of the match I helped capture B and C and got the achievement with about 15-20 seconds of the match left. We had already scored by capturing a set of 3 zones earlier in the match so I dunno if it figured we were gonna win since the enemy weren't gonna be able to pull it back and therefore only counted my assists for the 2 zones we had. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    FonslayerI did this one by capturing all 3 zones in the same round but we didn't even scored the point... I captured B and the rest of the team captured A, then we lost B, I captured C, then we lost A, I captured A and the achievement poped up and we only had A at the time.

    I'm fact we lost the game 3-0 lol so it is bugged, you just need to capture the 3 different zones in the same round, you don't need to secure the point.

    JihzNapkinI got this by getting A, then B, and as i capped C they took A. We didn’t get a point, but I guess they happened simultaneously enough to count.

    FPSnoob2012I've got close to 50 hours in Infinite's multi-player so far and about a third of that in Big Team Battle. I have not had a single match of Total Control. Not one.

    HungryNic42Can this one be done against bots? It’s buggy

    EarthboundXI've never seen Total Control once, but so far that's because Big Team Battle is totally broken. I've not been able to join a server for that in a over a week now. Just get error message and error message.
