What Are The Best Military Shooters?

Games that simulate the military experience have become increasingly captivating and realistic today. There is something irresistible about taking on the role of a soldier in the heat of a fight, a feeling of adrenaline that can be compared to the rush of active duty. From Battlefield to Call of Duty, here is a list of the best military shooters for PC.

15. CoD Modern Warefare 2

CoD Modern Warefare 2 gameplay (Arnold Schwarzenegger)

All hell breaks loose when a global terrorist and Ultra Russian Nationalist, Makarov, threatens world order. A special force of soldiers known as Task Force 141 lead by Captain “Soap” Mactavish, with the assistance of the U.S. Army Rangers, counter the invasion of the Russian terror group into the United States. The game is first person with single player, coop and online features, developed by Infinity Ward.

The featured gameplay shows, comically, a multiplayer match on a submarine map with inserted soundbites of none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. The map is multi-tiered with ladders and bridges to expand maneuvers. Most players attack in a lone wolf style, unlike Rainbow Six Siege for instance, where cooperation is key to winning a match. Default player health and shields are low, making for realistic firefights. If you couldn’t tell, I’ve played this game a good bit.  

All in a Day’s Work: Task Force 141 units land outside of a fortress to infiltrate.

TSA: A deathmatch goes down between Ranger and Spetnaz forces on the map Terminal.

14. Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops: The Line Gameplay (Warning: explicit)

A group of Delta Force operatives are sent to the ruins of Dubai in order to locate survivors of a lost brigade. Published by 2K games, Spec Ops: The Line, has both single player and multiplayer capabilities. The game is tactical and allows players to use cover, the environment and group tactics in order to overcome enemies.

The gameplay opens with Captain Walker, the main character, discovering a fallen soldier in an armored vehicle. From there the squad moves on to attempt diplomacy with a group of Persian units also on an armored truck. They make quick ends to these foes while distracting them with a translator speaking Farzi. The sprint mechanic makes the game fast paced and smooth, there is also a slow-motion feature that kicks in when scoping on enemies. Players of Gears of War will recognize much of the features.

Sandstorm is Brewing: Captain Walker trudges through the desert outside of a Dubai as a sand cloud approaches.

Yo! Lay Me Down Some Cover Fire: Using cover, the squad attacks an enemy in front of a fallen aircraft covered in sand.
