Arms Race is the 8th game mode in MicroVolts.


The goal is to reach 20 kills first by killing other players. The biggest catch is that each player gets a weapon and gets another via enemy kill going up through each rank. There are 3-4 weapons for each weapon type (besides melee) and the type of weapon you get (e.g. shotgun) will change once you reach a certain amount of kills.

Kills - Weapon Type

1. Rifle

5. Shotgun

8. Sniper

12. Gatling Gun

14. Rocket

17. Grenade Launcher

However, you return to your previous weapon if you get killed by a melee weapon.
