Quick Start Guide

Arsenal Online is a 2D shooter with hundreds of customizable weapons and many different game modes. Every game mode can be played either solo or co-op with a teammate online.

  • Destroying blue targets
  • Destroying Drones
  • Destroying Harriers
  • Destroying Quadrunners
  • Purchased from the Shop

Weapons and Attachments

There are hundreds of weapons available in Arsenal Online. Weapons can be extensively modified with multiple attachments.

Unlocking Weapons

Most weapons have a level requirement. Earn XP to level up and access new weapons. Once the level requirement is reached, you can unlock the weapon with your Credits.

Unlocking Attachments

Attachments have either a weapon kill or headshot requirement. Simply get kills/headshots with the weapon to unlock new attachments. Once the requirement is reached, you can unlock the attachment with your Credits.


You have 4 customizable loadouts you can modify for Ranked games. Each loadout consists of a Primary and Secondary weapon. Rename your loadouts by clicking the Rename button. When you start a game, you can select one of your loadouts.

Firing Range

You can test every single weapon and attachment in the Firing Range without spending any Credits. This is useful to test out equipment before unlocking it for Ranked game modes!

Access the Firing Range from the main menu.
