Whether you’re an eSports pro or a shooter beginner, you’ll progress to become an FPS master.

Following its recent Steam Early Access launch, Warstride Challenges has already dropped a series of updates, introducing 24 new challenges by adding the Very Hard levels to Chapters 1 and 2, a deadly new power — "Stomp," a more accessible Level Editor, and improved UI and functionality with a new main menu and bug fixes.

Even more lands today with four new ‘Big Fun Levels’ added to Chapters 1 and 2 in Very Hard, as well as new content for the level editor such as the Carabine! The community has a lot to still look forward to in Warstride Challenges!
