Arenas of Combat, Core’s latest contest centered around level design and competitive shooter gameplay, had over 50 games submitted. All were made in a few weeks or less, but are arguably some of the best games on Core! After much deliberation with our panel of judges, including Minh “Gooseman” Le (the co-creator of Counter-Strike), we have announced the winners! Without further ado:
A fast-paced competitive team shooter where strategy counts just as much as aim. Roll from cover to cover to move up the map, coordinate with team-mates to pin enemies down and set up the perfect crossfire. Last team standing wins the round, first team to 10 wins the match!
Run through narrow city corridors and open squares, where randomly spawning weapons keep the combat continually fresh. Fast-paced combat is the name of the game!
Two teams are locked in a deadly power struggle for control of a superweapon called The Sentry! In order to complete their objectives, they need to take control of the command facility, and that requires completely eliminating the opposing team! But beware, linger too long and The Sentry’s red eye might find you.
The remains of the Valley Lumber Co. are a peaceful backdrop for gun-game mayhem. Creator sukhraj, a professional level designer, brought all his skills to Core to create one of the platform’s most polished maps.
Hunt through an enchantingly diverse environment in search of the best weapons while others do the same. From a dilapidated chapel that hides a masterwork crossbow to murky sewers that contain a skeleton grasping a rusty shotgun, the level of detail in this map is impressive.
Fight in a procedurally generated, destructible map filled with loot and capture points hidden beneath the ground’s surface! A very unique game that pushes Core in new and impressive directions.
Honorable Mentions: Liveonnoevil/WaveParadigm’s Upgrade Arena was a wonderfully diverse entry with lots of great elements and selimsamot’s Juggernaut Game Mode simplistic entry has us enjoying it far more than we expected.
