    Rangers!

    FAQ for today:

    Question:
    1. I already have an VALOFE account. Do I still need to register for a new one to play Combat Arms: Reloaded on Steam?

    Answer:
    The Steam version of Combat Arms: Reloaded can only be played by logging into the Steam account. If you are not a Steam user, please sign up for a new Steam account. If you want to play with VALOFE account, you have to install the client of VALOFE version which can be downloaded from the VALOFE site and play it. In other words, the VALOFE account can't be used on STEAM. However, VALOFE version and Steam version are working on the same server and each user will play together.

        5. Are weapons and gears free in Pure Combat Match?
        ...The weapons and gears corresponding to PURE COMBAT are free to charge...
        Not entierly true, some PCM weapons like the Bloody Hunter AUG A1 and several Tracker Knife variants are not available for free (not even their base variants) while on the other hand several reskins and event weapons (which offer no advantage over their base variants) are not available.


        ...Players can play with similar conditions because they can’t use overly strong weapons...
        That's not true at all, weapon performance has nothing to do with whether or not a weapon is available for PCM. Unless you're after the extra mag some epics provide the MP5A4 is arguably the best SMG when looking at the ones with high rate of fire (aside from akimbo weapons). Compared to other top tier SMGs in that category like the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 the MP5A4 has more damage and about half the spread. Same with ARs, the AK-12 is basicly an AK-74M with less recoil. You can say you kept the weapon selection simple by limiting the amount of available guns but performance seemed to be a secondary concern (note: I'm not complaining, I'm just addressing the misinformation).

          You do realize that all AUG A1 variants are not part of the PCM collection, right?
          You do realize that all Tracker knife variants are not part of the PCM collection, right?

          Here again the list of PCM items

            What was it? The green weapon symbol stands for PCM, right? Well then:

            The game disagrees.

            The game disagrees again.

            That's not the list of PCM items, it's just the list of items which have been added to the shop for free. Weapons like the M16A3 series, event variants like the DSR-1 (Event) (but somehow not the SPR (Event)), old rank up weapons, the default backpack (but somehow not the other 1 slot backpacks despite them only being cosmetic skins) and several other ones (like those mentioned above) are also PCM items.

                I have reported for example the Bloody Tracker knife already before the Change from hardcore to PCM items (the related patch) as wrongly marked. That's still the case and reported once again that these items got wrongly added as PCM items.
                Maybe you should question next time if these items are correctly added instead of simply telling "the game disagrees". You have options to report bugs in the related forum channel or via the official VALOFE Discord to any morderator of your choice.

                As you notice, these items aren't even mentioned on the from me shared list here. This shared list was provided by VALOFE Staff as the list of PCM items. You might disagree, you maybe see stuff differently or what ever, fact is VALOFE changed stuff in this game and remarked specific items as PCM items in this game which are free to use and purchase and can be used in the PURE COMBAT MODE. If you are happy with it or not.
                You maybe want review the guide https://combatarms-r.valofe.com/guide/pure_combat

                VALOFE also added now the default Backpack as a PCM item, so people are now allowed to use at least one backpack in PCM games. If you ask me, I would have kept it "No Backpack" only in PCM. I even suggested it to keep it without any backpack in my feedback forms.
                But at the end of the day, the company decides and they decided not only based on my feedback but also based on the feedback of other players who were that kind and participated in the Focused group tests of the test client based on this whole subject.
