Combat Arms 3.0 Arms Race (07/03/13)

Combat Arms is a game of weapons, and you'll need to master every type in order to succeed in this game mode! Arms Race is very much like One Man Army. It's you against everyone else in the game room in a mad dash to the kill limit. There's just one catch: you'll have to use every weapon type in Combat Arms to win!
  — Official Combat Arms website 

Arms Race is the 15th game mode released in Combat Arms on 07/03/13 Combat Arms 3.0 Update.


Arms Race is a free for all game mode where the objective is to use randomly selected weapons from each weapon family in order to reach the kill limit. It requires multiple kills with each weapon, except the final tier (knife and grenade), which requires only one kill, to finish the game.

  • A player may pull an equipped weapon, with any customization or modification added previously by the owner. This is a random event, but its probability can be increased with Silver or Gold Packs.
    • It is possible to draw the same weapon twice, or even thrice.
  • There is an occasional graphics glitch on multiple weapons. This can be corrected by switching to the knife and back.
  • There was a glitch when a player in the bomb stage can kill themselves to win. This has been patched in the following maintenance.
  • Arms Race is very similar to Call Of Duty's Gun Game in which you must get kills with your gun to get the next gun until you reach the last weapon.
