Item of the Week
This week’s item of the week is the G3. The G3 is a highly reliable rifle widely used by soldiers around the world. The G3 is often seen as a "generalist" weapon, very useful in a variety of contexts. With an added scope, it makes for a good sniper rifle. Used as a standard assault rifle, its power and low recoil make it very good for mid-range fighting on maps like Vertigo and Dark Forest. Its weight makes it a poor choice for fighters who rely on speed, it's light enough not to hamper most soldiers. The main drawback of the G3 is its 20-shot magazine capacity. This is somewhat made up for by its excellent accuracy, making this a great choice for a soldier who relies on being a good shot rather than spraying lots of bullets in the air.
Let’s see what a few of your fellow Combat Arms players had to say:
"The G3 is good in pretty much all quarters combat (close and range). Best with an Acog scope since its accuracy is very similar to that of the M416CQB. Recoil pattern is different from M416CQB. the pattern is somewhat diagonal. Also very similar to CX4 Storm. I think that this gun is good for anyone whether they are 'noob' or 'pro'." – Alan D.
"The G3 is a smart gun to use in junk flea for it's overwhelming power of close combat. 20 bullets , like the SG550, is like coming with a good fast reloader. Modding it with the extended magazine I will also help for more ammo. This old style gun is really supportive as well! The black scouts will be running away when they see this old but still great AK-like gun.– Andy O..
"The G3 is a very good multi-purpose gun for those of you who need the close quarters power and the long range accuracy. I adapted mine with an extended mag II, as well as an Itech scope which has made it practically recoil free. G3 is best adapted to in small maps but can be taken out to the snow or such and used for longer distances with a bit of practice." - Krissy T.

What is the Super Elite Moderator?
For those of you who want the experience of hosting your own "server," as you would in a peer-to-peer game, the Super Elite Moderator will make it possible. With the Elite Moderator abilities to control the rules of combat and be able to kick abusive players from the game, it also pushes your room to the top of the list, and allows 2 Arms options to be set simultaneously.
Don't forget, it's your responsibility to use your abilities to provide a positive play environment; otherwise your rating as a moderator will be affected.
