About Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Don't have Modern Combat 5: Blackout?

Genre: Shooter | Publisher: Gameloft | Platform: Mobile
Bridging the gap between mobile and PC gaming, Modern Combat 5: Blackout features a world hopping campaign as special forces operative Phoenix chases down his nemesis, Everett Saunders.

A free-to-play offering from Gameloft, Modern Combat 5 fuses together elements of both casual and hardcore gaming that's more open than an on-rails shooter but contained enough to run smoothly on mobile platforms.

With loads of weapons and skills to unlock and a variety of both single and multiplayer modes, Modern Combat 5: Blackout will please fans of first person shooters who just want the diversion of a single match as well as those who want to invest much more time.

What We Like The Most About Modern Combat 5: Blackout

With a very familiar control scheme and play style for FPS fans, Modern Combat 5 also includes the upgrading and leveling elements of free online games and a series of Xbox style achievements to keep players hooked.

Multiplayer modes and maps
Although less open and expansive than a traditional shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout manages to offer a satisfying number of maps that take time to master while engaging enemies in team death match, free-for-all, zone control or capture the flag matches.

Earning upgrades
Rather than starting off with every weapon and piece of battlefield gear available, Modern Combat 5 provides new equipment and upgrades as you rack up your kill count in both single and multiplayer modes. New and improved sights for zooming in, better grips for accuracy and even completely different weapons are all available for the taking.

Item 3
Modern Combat 5 offers five different classes, and each features unique skills to be unlocked by successfully completing missions. The Recon, Assault, Heavy, Sniper and Support classes all have pros and cons with differing reload speeds, ammo and grenade loud outs as well as diverse skills such as calling in airstrikes and jamming enemy equipment.

The Basics of Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Kicking off with Phoenix being interrogated for involvement in a military assault gone wrong, Modern Combat 5 sets the combat specialist on a path of redemption and revenge. Along the way he'll have to master a varied roster of weapons from grenades to up and close and personal knife fights.

Reaching the end of the campaign and becoming a force to be reckoned with in multiplayer requires choosing the right types of equipment for each situation and completing all available bonus objectives to quickly earn new skills and a better class of weaponry

Core Challenges of Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Taking down hordes of AI enemies in the single player campaign or squads of living opponents in multiplayer will be much easier if you follow these Modern Combat 5 strategies:

1. Change tactics depending on game mode
During the single player missions, Phoenix is better suited for stealth and precision than wild charges and sprays of gunfire. Make use of cover and carefully lineup shots for single player, but while engaged in the Modern Combat 5 multiplayer maps the opposite holds true – it’s better to remain mobile to avoid incoming fire from unpredictable players.

2. Stay alert for on screen events
Periodically, throughout the game events take place that requires quick reflexes to avoid enemy forces or protect civilians. These take place at unexpected times when you'd typically be safe – like during dialog cut scenes. To stay alive, rapidly tap and slide the indicated screen position for mobile or click and drag on PC.

More experience means better equipment, which makes you more likely to survive in single or multiplayer modes. Take the time to line up your shots and go for a weapon with a scope, as headshots are worth twice as much experience, and you get bonus experience for being more than 50% accurate in any level. 

Top User Questions About Modern Combat 5: Blackout

What's the battery at the top of the Modern Combat 5 screen? 
Three bars of energy are necessary to play most single and multiplayer modes, and you lose energy by failing missions and having to start over. Recovering energy requires winning a single player mission, taking part in a full multiplayer match without quitting early or by spending real money. If you run out of energy, Modern Combat 5 locks you out of playing any modes for a period of time. When on the verge of running out of energy, go back and play an easier mission earlier in the game.

What's the point of bonus objectives?
Besides offering ways to earn achievements, completing all the bonus objectives in a single player mission awards supply packs, which give upgrades, weapons and new icons for free. Getting the specific skin or icon you want is much faster if you frequently earn supply packs. 

What's the Modern Combat 5 black market
New weapons are available from the in-game “black market,” but they require large amounts of diamond dust to purchase. When you get a weapon from a supply pack you had already previously unlocked, the weapon can be converted to diamond dust and saved up to buy better guns.
