Create and upgrade an arsenal of lethal weapons, including from rocket launchers, grenades, machine guns, and exclusively licensed weaponry like the Kalashnikov, Famas, and Sig Sauer; there are even attack dogs that can be unleashed into battle. Equipped with real-world weapons, take charge and head into battle with 5 multiplayer modes that include new gametypes like Hot Zone and High Value Target, each supporting 2, 3 or even 4 teams.
