“All my life I thought air was free, until I bought a bag of chips.” (Phantom Forces) Playing Phantom Forces has been so sensational to me as I experienced so many different aspects of the game. As shown in the quote above, chip bags have so much air in them that it seems like your even paying for the air. Such creative and innovative quotes in Phantom Forces makes me want to play more and more of this amazing game each and every day. They have such interesting quotes at the ends of matches, a variety of guns, many maps, and a high diversity of gun customizations.
While choosing a gun to fight with, you will be bombarded with a variety of guns that can match your gameplay ranging from scout weapons, assault rifles, support guns, and recons. Within these categorizations of guns, there are even more classes in them! If you are the aggressive and sweaty type player (ahem....me) you should choose a gun within the assault category. Within the assault category, there are more categories including the assault rifles, battle rifles, carbine, and shotguns. These subclasses vary with different guns in each of them with their own style. Assault rifles have decent range, high damage, and medium recoil. This makes it the perfect gun to flank the other team to kill their people in close or medium range. Assault rifles are not the type to shoot far range as the recoil completely destroys your aim. Battle rifles, however, do more damage than assault rifles but with more recoil and less range. Playing with battle rifles is best in close range because recoil doesn’t matter due to the fact that your opponent is close to you which means you can land most of your bullets. Next, carbine weapons have average damage, more range, and less recoil compared to the rifles. These weapons are perfect for medium range as the recoil doesn’t completely obliterate your aim and also does decent damage. Lastly, in the shotgun tab, the damage is way higher than all the rifles and carbines but lacks range. In close range, the shotgun can literally one tap the opponent if most of the bullets land. Because of the large spread of the bullets, the shotgun cannot be used for far range shooting. Although you can buy a slug and attach it to the shotgun to make it have a farther range, it costs a lot of money and requires 2000 kills with that specific shotgun. I really don’t recommend using the same weapon for such a while as there are many other guns that can easily surpass the use of shotguns. Summing up this paragraph, most categories have subclasses so you can really pick the best gun for your gameplay.
When playing Phantom Forces, there is a variety of maps to choose from including the Mall, Ravod 911, Suburbia, and more. These maps can really help your playstyle as some of these maps give benefits to your weapons. When using a gun from the assault category, the map Metro would be one of the best maps to choose from. When playing Metro, you can easily flank the other side using the side terminals and kill the enemy players. As you repeat this process, using an assault rifle can easily get you more and more kills as the game accumulates. However, if you are a sniper type player, you would want to choose a map like Ravod 911. This map consists of two main buildings where many players can easily take down others by sniping. As the spawns are away from the buildings, people usually get spawn killed by the many snipers who got on the building first.
Lastly, Phantom Forces provides a diverse array of gun customizations including many optics, barrels, underbarrels, and ammo. When you customize your gun optic, your aim can drastically improve. Choosing a sight that fits you may be key to getting more kills as you can land more shots when wasting less ammo. Customizing barrels may be hard as each barrel attachment doesn’t really make a difference. Most barrels reduce sound when firing making your weapon harder to detect. Underbarrels, nonetheless, reduce recoil. In doing this your aim with your weapon can improve as your gun doesn’t shake as much when you fire. Finally, it comes down to ammo. There are two ammo types to choose from varying from armor-piercing to hollow point. Armor-piercing reduces damage within close range while increasing bullet penetration. Hollow point, however, does more damage to unarmored body parts but reduces range. Ammo types have their advantages along with its disadvantages.
In conclusion, Phantom Forces is such an original and astounding game because of its many guns, variety of maps, and variation of gun customizations. People of Roblox should experience this game and perhaps they too will enjoy it as much as me. Even though as a starter you may be killed more often, as you progress in the game you will get better and better until you are the one killing them! Thank you!
