Combat Arms, an online free-to-play first person shooter published by Nexon America, has released a new block of content this week. The new update, called Operation: Sector 25, adds a new set of deadly weapons to its industry-leading armory as well as a new zone and a recruitment program that delivers rewards to recruits and recruiters alike.
The new zone, called Sector 25, is a lab setting designed as an oval with a center corridor and a core connected to the outer oval hall with a series of passages. Opposing forces can clash in the center corridor or battle over flags at each end of the center core.
Also added to the swelling list of game weapons is the Ultimax 100 machine gun, perfect for mowing down large numbers of attackers, and the DSR-1, a portable sniper rifle well suited for shoot-and-run situations. Additionally, the new Baron’s M416 CQB epic assault rifle can be found in the MYST-N supply cases. To help identify weaknesses in enemies, a new KDR/HP vision gauge can be purchased that shows an enemy’s kill/death ratios, as well as the amount of hit points they have remaining when targeted by a players reticle.
To help players from ending up in the morgue, a new Balistic Helmet has been introduced that provides added protection from headshots, increases a players speed and protects them from the effects of flash grenades.
The new recruitment program, running through Aug. 25, provides rewards to players who bring in friends to play Combat Arms until they are ranked Sergeant. Players will be given rewards based on how many friends they recruit, and recruits who stay through the sergeant rank will receive GP and other items for their loyalty. New recruits will immediately receive a free Starter Package that includes seven days worth of weapons and gear. The recruit will also have the opportunity to complete a training program, from which they will receive 3,000 GP that they can use to gear up even more.
