You can choose your character and then join one of the online games. The type of games you can join is free for all, Deathmatch, Survivor, Capture The Flag, Follow the leader and Bomb mode. The weapons are realistic and you have to change magazines when you run out of bullets. Make sure you watch how many rounds you have so you don't find yourself cornered and without ammunition.
