Weekly Briefing
-- June 25, 2010

Communiqué: Combat Arms Command, June 25, 2010

Attention Soldiers!

week the big news is the arrival of the Rec Rules server on June 30th
and the ongoing "Submachine Gun Month." There are a few events this week
in fact, that take advantage of our month long focus on these deadly
little beauties. Our Item of the Week is all done up in patriotic colors
just in time for the Independence Day holiday, and we take a look at
what your fellow soldiers think of the American Eagle. There's a great
99NX sale, and a new section where we give new recruits a bit of help in
getting acclimated to the battlefield. Check out everything that
happened this week in Combat Arms and always remember that heart disease
is America's number one killer -- but Combat Arms Command is looking to
change that!

Item of the Week

American Eagle

This week’s item of the week is the beautiful American Eagle. The
American Eagle is a patriotic pistol with a Stars and Stripes design. It
will be on sale for a limited time oiver the 4th of July weekend, the
American Eagle is more than just pretty and patriotic; it's one of the
most powerful handguns in the game. Obviously as a pistol, it is a
secondary weapon to be used in specialized scenarios and as a last-ditch
weapon. Given that, however, the American Eagle is popular for its
utility as a close quarters combat weapon in maps such as Junk Flea and
Cold Seed. It's also incredibly useful in "Pistol Only" games. The real
reason to own this baby though, is simply to show your American pride on
the battlefields of the world!

Let’s see what a few of your
fellow Combat Arms players had to say:

"Nice! That is definitely one of the coolest pistols ever!"
– Kyle S.

“I want it so so so
so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so
so so so so so so so so so so so so so badly."
Zachary J.

"That Desert
Eagle is an American beauty. Thanks to you Nexon! You made it come out
in the most amazing way ever! That thing is sick!"
- Luis V.

Basic Training

New to Weekly
Briefing? Welcome to basic training, maggot! This is where we direct you
to areas of interest, and give you tips on things that recruits should
really know in order to become effective in the fight faster! This
week's question:
What is Vivox Voice Chat
and how do I use it?

Vivox Voice Chat allows
you to communicate with other players in-game through any standard
3.5mm jack-in or USB headset.

Voice chat is on by default when you log into the game. The first
time you will see (hear) voice chat is in a game lobby. There is no
voice in the server lobby. After the game is launched from the game
lobby, you will have voice in-game. Click #ffba4d ! important;">here for
more information about Vivox Voice Chat.

hilarious addition to Combat Arms that’s never going to happen: The
