10 Xbox One Military Shooter Games!
Halo 5 Guardians
After Bungie’s split with Microsoft, the world was confused as to how the franchise was going to take off. The team from 343 Industries oversees the project, taking the helm with Microsoft’s biggest franchise. First it was Halo 4, now it’s Guardians. Master Chief goes missing, and two fireteams are on the verge of a great discovery as a new threat emerges. It’s a race against time in Halo’s most ambitious entry yet. This first-person shooter oozes with the same futuristic badassery that the series was known for. New modes accompany the game’s multiplayer, which was the staple of the series. It was overhauled and loaded with so much fun with friends. Critics loved its gameplay, visuals, and of course, the multiplayer.
Sniper Elite 4
The glorious slow mo’s make a return in Rebellion’s satisfying sniper game. Although it was a huge step up compared to the previous version, it was still marred with inconsistencies and lack of substance. Either way, Sniper Elite 4 is the latest installment of Rebellion’s sniper experience and it’s hella good. This third-person tactical shooter puts you on the shoes of a master marksman setting sights on Italian lands. As mentioned, the game’s iconic feature is its slow motion shots. Take down angry Nazis and criminals with precision and skill. Watch their balls explode, heads pop, skulls crack and more. It also has an increased verticality, making stealth an even more integral factor to the game.
While it was haunted by a few irritating issues at launch, that didn’t stop it from becoming one of the most persistent Battlefield titles. It builds upon the legacy of previous titles, upgrading their features and creating something new and familiar. Three years after its launch, thousands of players continue to play it today. Not only does it have an extremely enjoyable multiplayer mode, but it also features moments of jaw-dropping devastation as you turn towering structures into piles of rubble. It was one of the very the first games to showcase the true power of Frostbite 3, as it turns every well-designed level into a spectacular fireshow. Culminating all the best features of the franchise, it’s undoubtedly one of the greatest Battlefield games yet
Sniper Elite III
Let’s go back to the wondrous tragedies of the Second World War, as we infiltrate the bases of the infamous Afrika Korps. Set in the vast dunes of North Africa, use stealth to stalk your Nazi prey under its blinding yellow skies, await the perfect opportunity, and shoot to kill. Show your ardent patriotism in gruesome ways with the return of Sniper Elite’s acclaimed X-ray Kill Cam. With revamped graphics, every killshot climaxes into a gorey show of blood, bone, and brain bits that will satisfy your appetite for carnage. Despite its simplistic narrative, it manages to offer doses of good fun with it’s merciless slow-motion slaughters, and layered stealth mechanics.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
Everyone loves Modern Warfare. Breaking away from its usual World War 2 setting, Infinity Ward returns with their classic characters such as Captain Price and Soap MacTavish. Civil war has occurred in Russian borders and the two powerful nations are caught in a spiral of political intrigue. This remastered version comes together with “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” as a special feature. It has enhanced textures, lighting, and runs at 1080p at 60 frames per second. Too bad you have to purchase the game to play it. It was hailed as the best Call of Duty game to date. Critics praised its story, pacing and memorable characters. What happened now?
Gears of War 4
Get ready for some cover-based shooting as Gears of War harkens back to its roots. The first in the main series not to be developed by Epic Games, Gears of War 4 becomes a sort of tribute to their legacy. 25 years after the events of the original trilogy, Marcus Fenix makes a return to the fray. Now aged and wise, he takes the role of mentor to his son as they fight against a new threat. There’s more destruction as you resist against norms and face off against unknown creatures with JD, Kait, and Del. It’s our last journey to the nostalgic past as Gears’ new creators bring in a new generation of characters.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
Prepare for some more environmental destruction with this tactical shooter from the acclaimed Ubisoft Montreal. Play as the eponymous elite counter-terrorist unit, and engage in widespread chaos with its brand-new sieges. Perform operations as one of the world’s best counter-terrorism forces. Choose from SAS, SWAT, GIGN, and more. Tinker with each force’s expertise, and fulfill your sensitive duties with surgical precision. Rainbow Six’s world is at its most interactive. Use it to your advantage by breaking through walls and floors, to create access points and lines of fire. While it suffers from an underwhelming amount of content thanks to a lack of single-player story campaign, its online gameplay is good enough to make up for it.
Not to be confused with DICE’s unchronological numbers. This is the latest Battlefield game that takes you back to the dawn of war. Experience World War 1 at its peak and step into warplanes, zeppelins, trenches, tanks and more. The game has a single-player campaign that packs good fun. Follow through six different chapters in various character perspectives. But we all know DICE isn’t in it for the single-player experience. Perhaps the biggest upgrade to this franchise is its multiplayer. Gather your squad and set the battlefield ablaze in its various multiplayer modes: Conquest, Domination, Rush and more. Not to mention you can play as a Pigeon! Critics and gamers loved the game for its intense action experience. Making you feel like you’re in the middle of a warzone. Even the World War 1 setting is refreshing for some players.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
The first Gears title to be worked on by Microsoft’s The Coalition before their Gears of War 4 debut. This Ultimate Edition revitalizes the series’ decade old origin. It was Gears of Wars at its freshest, and its made even fresher by the added graphical updates, enhanced lighting, and improved textures. With this remaster, Marcus and the gang are looking more real than ever before. Travel back in time to our first meeting with the dreaded locusts, or jump to the present with the revamped multiplayer mode, complete with new maps, game modes, and playable characters. Gears of War was the pinnacle for cover-based shooting games, and this remaster does a good job of reminding us of that fact.
