Featured Item of the Week

M60 Steel

This week’s item of the week is the M60 Steel, a popular weapon amongst Combat Arms players because of its utility, high damage, moderate recoil and high ammo capacity. Sometimes called a “spray and pray” weapon, and thanks to Machine Gun Month, it’s currently on sale for 350NX per day. According to our soldiers, it is most popular on Junk Flea, Death Room and Fireteam maps such as Cabin Fever. The M60 Steel is most effectively used as a suppression weapon in tight spaces in order to scatter opponents, or in Infected maps, to quickly clear out a horde of zombies.

Let’s see what a few of your fellow Combat Arms players had to say:

I use this gun when I’m in quarantine or Fireteam Cabin Fever due to its rate of fire and damage and its capacity of bullets. It’s also good in Junk Flea one man army because of its high rate of fire. You can kill someone faster and don’t have to keep reloading after one kill!” – Darren A.

“I use it in Cabin Fever as my primary. I line the zombies up and then chug...chug...chug, they drop. The last thing they see is a 7.62 and I see spray and numbers....ahhhhh sweet bliss.” – Rob R.

M60 steel is a high fire rate gun. I would recommend it in close quarters maps such as,Junk Flea or Death Room. The recoil is not too bad so in Fireteam it would work pretty well in most situations.” – Vincent T.
