Experience immersive, tactical combat

In Insurgency: Sandstorm, players are immersed in close-quarters battlegrounds where the smallest of details can give an edge. Thanks to faithful and realistic sound design, the location of an enemy can be discovered just by the sound of their gunfire.

An entire arsenal of gear, classes, cosmetics, with loads of game modes

Choose to be a Security or Insurgent soldier, and customize your troop with a specialization, weapons loadout, and more. Tactical cooperation between classes is essential, and individual choices can have deadly consequences as you and your team adapt to each evolving situation. Battle through war-torn environments in seven different game modes, from adversarial PvP action to large-scale co-op operations versus enemy AI.
