This is, in my opiniom, the best Free To Play reality-based shooter out there by far.
The graphics are awesome, and even though the maps aren't extremely big they provide a good co-op experience.
I highly recommend giving it a try :).

A rather enjoyable, Free to Play game, with different mechanics compared to other shooters that I enjoy. The aiming, maps, team work and intel, all create a rather enjoyable experience all around. I recommend, if starting a new, to take your time, do the shoot yard, when in game, follow team mates, work together. learn before you judge, once you get decent to good at this game, it becomes much more fun and playable. Some people are rather good at the game and sadly, yes even some hackers.

This game is one of the best first person shooters (In my opinion) No need to unlock weapons, very well balanced, lots of strategy, you can go lone wolf or work as a team either one could work depending on how you play. This may be one of the only free games on steam that don't have microtransactions or DLC. The community is great as long as you pick the right servers, you can even quad kill your team by accident and people will just laugh their asses off. Skins are earned by completing goals making it a fun grind, not by lootboxes or leveling up. Levels in this game don't change anything except for your level icon, meaning this just represents time played and not any unlockables that give you an unfair advantage. There are few guns but why would you need a dozen machine guns and 10 sniper rifles when any gun will do the job? Try to ignore some of the negative reviews, if you can't get the email working then try troubleshooting and if it doesn't work then just don't play the game. Its a free game with no microtransactions so why downrate it if you can't play it? Its still worth a try and you can always delete it. Anyway this has become one of my favorite first person shooters and I forgot to mention that in one of the more recent-ish updates you can now customize your crosshair and team colors more. The game gets better by updates even though its as good as it is. If you can get the game working and you like tactical shooters then this won't be a waste of your time.

Realistic and funny-to-play FPS,I personally like this more than CoD and the "standard" FPSs due to its impact.

Free to play,but without a shop,this should be enough to give it a try.
Don't worry if first matches you're obtaining only 1-10 as K/D ratio,it is just matter of knowing the maps and getting used to the game's mechanics.

This should be the kind of games the world should and would play,not Clash of Clans and Slither.io.
This game is even better made than some AAA games,and most indie games that are $10.
It should probably worth even $15 if you have a "clan" or some friends to play it with.

Downloaded this game not knowing what to expect, knowing nothing about what to do.
I asked my team through voice chat, and 5+ people helped me and taught me basics about what to do.
The community on this game consists of mainly adults. Yes: mature adults. Every game needs people like this.

Basically what I'm trying to say is that the people that play this game are usually cool as ♥♥♥♥ and willing to help and guide you, unlike CS:GO where you'll be criticized and ♥♥♥♥ on for not knowing how to control recoil.

+1 hardly any russians
+1 everyone speaks english (♥♥♥♥ yeah america)
