(…) 1970 AD, Today. After the cold war, Adam Corp has completed their armament expansion and began manufacturing combat robots, which was prohibited by the international law. GSF quickly picked up the intel and dispatched their agents to an island in the republic where the core facilities of Adam Corp’s military factories are located. Hence begins the battle of GSF to cease Adam Corp’s bold ambition to take over the world.
GunZ 2: The Second Duel is completely free-to-play and free-to-win with weapons and cosmetics obtainable by playing and collecting points. You may purchase them in the items shop to save some time but part of the fun of playing would be lost. More importantly there is a high and not so steep learning curve if you happen to start this game now as it requires you to master its new gameplay mechanics.
