    About the Game
    Do you have what it takes to train like a U.S. Army Soldier?

    America’s Army: Proving Grounds is the official game of the U.S. Army and part of the highly acclaimed America’s Army game series. This free military game focuses on small unit tactical maneuvers and puts you to the test in new America’s Army maps as well as AA fan favorites Hospital and Bridge.

    Take on the role of an 11B Infantryman practicing combat maneuvers at JTC Griffin, a fabricated training MOUT (military operations on urban terrain) environment. This training is crucial to your success as part of a Long Range Combined Arms – Recon (LRCA-R) unit, a full spectrum capable team that embarks on special operations missions behind enemy lines.

    Key Features
    Two Game Modes
    Experience fast-paced Battledrill Exercises (BDX) (6v6) that focus on small unit maneuvers. As you learn how the enemy might react, adjust your strategy for future engagements
    Forward Line Operations (FLO) (12v12) test your skills in a larger environment
    Hardcore mode has increased weapon damage and a reduced HUD

    5 Mission Types
    Activate - Activate all the objectives
    Extract - Extract the objective to the rally point
    C4 - Plant the C4 at one of the bomb sites and defend it until it explodes
    Destroy - Arm the objective and defend it until it detonates
    Take and Hold - Activate all the objectives and prevent the enemy from activating objectives you control

    You are a U.S. Army Soldier
    Weapons - M4A1 Assault Rifle, M16A4 Assault Rifle, M249 Saw, M14EBR-RI, M24 Sniper Weapon System, Remington 870 MCS, and M9A1 Pistol
    Grenades - M67 Fragmentation Grenade, M83 Smoke Grenade, M106 Fast Obscurant Grenade and M84 Stun Grenade
    Optics - M68 Close Combat Optic, M553 Holographic Weapon Sight, M150 ACOG 4x Optic, Elcan M145, Leupold Mk4 and Ghost Ring Sight
    Supported Fire allows you to rest your weapon on obstacles to reduce recoil
    Bullets do instant and bleed damage, bandage yourself to stop the bleeding

    Teamwork is Critical
    Spotting enemies gives your teammates greater situational awareness
    Reviving your down buddies gets them back in the fight
    Securing enemies prevents them from being revived and communicating with their team
    Report your location and status to your team
    Suppression affects your enemy even if you don’t hit them. Use the M249 to control firing lanes and keep the enemy’s head down while your team flanks their position

    Train in Shoot Houses
    Shoot Houses give you a place to learn how to use all the weapons in a single-player environment. They are fast-paced exercises that allow you to compete for the highest score
    Create your own shoot houses in the Mission Editor

    Mission Editor
    Create your own missions and shoot houses with the AA:pG Mission Editor
    Share them on the Steam Workshop
    View the Tutorial at America's Army: Proving Grounds
    As your skills with the Mission Editor increase, you can move to the Advanced Editor
    *The Mission Editor and Advanced Editor are developer tools that require more advanced hardware than what is required to run the game. Performance may vary.

    About the Comic
    The storyline that influences the America’s Army: Proving Grounds game is unveiled in the America’s Army Comic series. Learn more about the assignment you are on and the challenges you will face by reading the saga of American forces deployed to Czervenia, a tiny foreign nation in the middle of a chaotic conflict. In order to defend against Czervenian President-General Adzic and his army who are attacking the neighboring Republic of the Ostregals, America's Army has created new experimental combat teams, forged together in secret Proving Grounds, to uncover the General's insidious plot before time runs out.
