What Is Insurgency Sandstorm?

Insurgency Sandstorm is a hardcore tactical multiplayer shooter, that also features a co-operative mode against AI. Both are great experiences, and here at WePC we consider the game to be one of the under appreciated gems of the last few years.

The Combat

The game has some of the most brutal combat of any First-Person Shooter currently on the market, thanks to its vast array of realistic weapons and damage modeling (higher calibers make heads explode!) and superbly explosive sound design. The array of weapons and loadouts for each class is hugely customizable, and offers massive room for experimentation.

The Teams

The game is somewhat asymmetric in nature – with one team playing as the Insurgents, the other the Security forces, both having different weapons and support that the commander class and observer (i.e. radioman) can call in: including drone bombs and poison gas for the Insurgents and chopper support for the Security forces.

The Game modes

Various game modes are available, including the classic ‘Push’ where one team must defend a series of objectives whilst the attacking team attempts to take them, the more competitive geared ‘Firefight’ mode where both teams fight over three objectives, team members only respawning if an objective is captured, and the more instant respawn Deathmatch-esque ‘Domination’ mode. Co-op mode also features various unique game modes where you and your compadres must fight off waves of enemy AI, including the zombie-like ‘Frenzy’ mode.
