America's Army: Proving Grounds
Work In Progress
America's Army: Proving Grounds is the sequel to America's Army 3, released in 2013. It is set in the same fictional East European region of Czervenia as America's Army 3, with the background being that the player is an 11B Infantryman practicing combat maneuvers at Joint Training Center Griffin located in the region for future operations.
The game is multiplayer-only and more streamlined to emphasizes small unit tactical maneuvers, but still realistic overall. Like the first game, players always see themselves as the US Army, and see their opponents as the OPFOR faction. Originally, weapons in the OPFOR armory can only be picked up from dead enemies and usable only in that game. Following the March 13th, 2018 update on the PS4 and the April 12th, 2018 update on the PC, OPFOR weapons are added to the equipment customization menu. They can be used if the player first "secures" them by eliminating enemies wielding them, so despite their availability, they're still more or less faction exclusive.
US Army weapons and optics are closely modeled after real equipment, while OPFOR weapons and optics are stylized portrayals of real weapons and optics.
The following weapons appear in the video game America's Army: Proving Grounds
US Army Weapons
The M17 MHS is added on the October 24th, 2018 update as a US Army weapon.
Springfield Armory Loaded MC Operator
The "M1911A1" US Army weapon appears to be a Springfield Armory Loaded MC Operator pistol with a threaded barrel and custom front strap serrations.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The Heckler & Koch MP7A1 was officially added to the game on the October 24th, 2018 update as the VIP's main weapon. Prior to its official release, it was originally accidentally added to the weapon menu around early 2018, during which it can be seen but was unusable, and was later removed from the menu in the March 13th, 2018 update, cited as a bug.
The M4A1 is a US Army weapon.
The M16A4 MWS is a US Army rifle.
The SCAR-H is added on the October 24th, 2018 update.
The M14 EBR-RI is a US Army weapon.
The M24 SWS is a US Army weapon.
The M249 is the US Army machine gun, and appears with the railed handguard.
Remington 870 MCS
The US Army shotgun is the Remington 870 MCS.
A weird modified model is used on a piece of in-game graphic; the MCS here has a shortened barrel and magazine tube, roughly at the length of the Remington 870 MCS Entry, though it still has small rails on the short bit of barrel it has like on the full-length MCS.
M67 Hand Grenade
M83 Smoke Grenade
The M83 smoke grenade is the US Army smoke grenade. An alternate grenade option, the fictional "M106 Fast Obscurant Grenade" (FOG for short), is an airburst smoke grenade that quickly releases a cloud of smoke for cover. Model-wise, it appears to be the same M83 model but retextured.
M84 Stun Grenade
Browning Buck Mark Micro Bull Stainless
The Browning Buck Mark Micro Bull Stainless with a wooden grip appears as the "CZ2", and is the standard OPFOR handgun. It is a counterpart to the Beretta, and holds 15+1 rounds. It can also be unlocked for use by the US Army by completing an achievement.
The "AK-105" is the OPFOR equivalent to the M4A1. It is actually an AK-104 with a custom stock.
The "AK-107" is the OPFOR equivalent to the M16A4, featuring the corresponding three-round burst mode that doesn't exist on real AKs. It is actually an AKM with custom synthetic parts.
A slightly modified AK-Alfa was added on the October 24th, 2018 update as the "CZ Alpha". It is the OPFOR equivalent to the SCAR-H.
The SV-98 is the OPFOR sniper rifle equivalent to the M24 SWS.
The Benelli Supernova is the OPFOR equivalent of the Remington 870.
The RPK-74M is the OPFOR machine gun and appears with a Beta C-like drum magazine.
Non-Faction Locked Weapons
The RPG-7 (RPG-7V2) was added in the July 26th, 2018 update. It can only be picked up in the field at set locations on the maps.
