Every time I play the 2D shooter Armajet on our Mobcrush channel, anyone who's watching and doesn't already know the game gets very excited, and I think for good reason. This very competitive multiplayer arena game offers a very tight package with characters that control very well, plenty of weapons that are different enough to matter, and ever-improving social elements like clans. And while the game is still in beta, it's already getting some esports buzz, which is a bit surprising not because of the quality of the game but because the game isn't finished yet.

According to an announcement today, Hammers Esports, an organization that focuses on mobile sports and has teams in games like Vainglory, Hearthstone, and Clash Royale, is merging with Orion, one of Armajet's best clans. Out of this merge we'll get the Hammer Esports clan. While not all games work as esports and not all esport games end up with a strong enough following, I think it's a sign of how popular Armajet is becoming even in its unfinished state. I'm curious to see how much attention this game will receive once the game is officially released.

    I feel that the blacktusk and most automatic weapons are way too strong rn, all the top players use it. Also the pack system is pretty annoying, I've been playing since the first alpha got me to sign up for the alpha and I still haven't gotten the Nightfall

      I'm same boat with slow progression of gear upgrades, but I have no worse a time going up against skilled players who use Blacktusk. Just adjust your tactics 😉

        I do feel like the Devastator is underpowered until the third upgrade at least.

    This game is amazing. The monetisation system is perfect and the pvp aspect is awesome! The only thing I don't like is that there're bots, but they will remove them once the game comes out.

    I am loving the beta gameplay already and you guys are all in for a serious treat when this hits! A perfect fit for escort competition!

    How does this control? I feel like it is most functions like a dual stick shooter??

      It's sidescrolling around the map, but controls are one side to aim and the other to fire directionally. Bullets can also help propel you a little in the opposite direction of fire. Great gear with primary and secondary weapons and multiple upgraded editions of each weapon. This is an excellent skill based shooter with deep strategy and tactics for the more discerning competitive player 😉 Most fun I've had with a beta other than The Quest HD!

    I've been enjoying the heck out of this game!
    I think they have made improvements to the gear packs in recent weeks (used to get 2-3 badges every time, that seems to have adjusted).
    but with a F2P system that lets you play as much as you want (I have definitely clocked 2-3 hours in one sitting), they have to pinch you somewhere (and I definitely owe them some Paragon purchases!).
