Right now they are named "Points of contention" but I am looking for something shorter.

To give some context this is a strategy war game in a high tech scifi setting with robots and hyper altered humans. The cards themselves activate a area of the map that can be used to temporarily buff your pieces. Like these examples from video games... boosters on Mario Kart race tracks or shrines in the Diablo series. One may give you an extra action the turn you step on it, another may give you a temporary force-field, and some may heal you.

Points of contention is what I want to create by using these cards but that is not a good title for them.

Thanks for any suggestions!

You want a short name - they activate things, so call them "Activators."
Sounds sci-fi enough to me.

Or for a little more description, "Zone Activators," since what they activate is a map area.
