Lock and load in this multiplayer, team combat game, fighting your way through glorious VR worlds. Teleport to the top of structures and shoot through a sniper scope, all while coordinating strategy during fast-paced rounds. Insane physics–driven power-ups put your trigger finger on heat-seeking missiles, grenades, and fireballs. Battle until one team wins through VR environments, from space stations, shipping terminals and rock quarries. Inspired by Mario Kart and Counter-Strike, play in Single Player Story Mode and Online Multiplayer mode.
