Full Update Notes

Attention Soldiers

Welcome to Operation: Red Canyon! It's our first content update of 2013, and this month we're focused on giving you more ground to fight over and a few more guns too! Take a look below for all the changes that have come to Operation: Red Canyon!

New Map: Red Canyon

Combat Arms' 43rd map is here, and you're heading into Red Canyon to secure this hidden base!

In the great canyons north of the World Federation, a climber stumbles upon a suspicious facility. The World Federation's JSF concludes that this is a secret base operated by the Third World Union's Creed. Special Forces are dispatched to raid the base and collect evidence of Creed's illicit activities.

Occasional sniping positions aside, this is very much a close-quarters favoring map. The twisted interior of the base will make sniper rifles mostly useless, greatly favoring traps, ambushes and large collections of mines. This is definitely a map where you'll want to keep a shotgun or submachine gun on hand!

Allowed Game Modes:

Updates to Slaughterhouse and Piazza!

Slaughterhouse and Piazza have finally joined the ranks of full-fledged Combat Arms maps!

With our next update, Piazza will now be available for Clan Matches in Elimination, Elimination Pro and Capture the Flag!

But the bigger update is for Slaughterhouse! With a few changes to support the non-Search And Destroy game modes, Slaughterhouse will now be available in all of the following game modes:

  • Elimination
  • Elimination Pro
  • Search and Destroy
  • One Man Army
  • Spy Hunt
  • Last Man Standing

Add in Red Canyon, you'll have plenty of new ground to fight over this month!

New GP Weapons!

Of course, what's a Combat Arms content update without a couple new GP weapons to play around with?

(UPDATE: Due to an issue with the MINIMI CAMO , it has been removed from the shop . We apologize for the inconvenience, and will re-release the machine gun once the issue has been resolved.)
