The Master Browser Server will appear, with the default screen being for online play over the Internet.Before doing anything else, make sure there is a tick mark against the 'Enable Punk Buster' setting at the bottom of this screen to enable the Punk Buster anti-cheat software (See Punk Buster section in the Troubleshooting Tips section, and further below).This is strongly recommended since firstly you cannot join most servers unless you enable Punk Buster, and secondly because playing on Punk Buster-enabled servers means you will be less likely to run into people who are cheating.To view a list of available America's Army servers on which you can play, you can first set the particular Filters you want to use to filter out servers which would not suit your needs.Punk Buster Updates Punk Buster is the official anti-cheat software used in America's Army.You can find out more about it on the Punk Buster America's Army Support Site.Use the Walk command to disable Ghost - Allows you to move through solid objects Entropy - Toggle invincibility mode on/off Invisible - Toggles player invisibility All Ammo - Give player ammo for all weapons Wpnrecoil - Toggles weapon recoil on/off Judas - Toggles perfect weapon accuracy Switchlevel [mapname] - Goes to the specified map Viewbots - Views from the next summoned character Freecamera [0, 1] - Changes the view to a free floating camera (1) or back to the player (0) Set Camera Dist [range]- Set camera distance from the character Lockcamera - Locks the camera view in one spot and lets the player roam around Slomo [number] - Lets you change the rate at which time passes Setspeed [number] - Changes the player's speed Setjumpz [number] - Sets the player's jump height (325 is default) For more information on the commands that can be used in offline mode see Appendix D of the Official America's Army Manual, and for more commands used in the console (in both online and offline modes) see the Console Commands section on page 10 of this guide, as well as this extremely comprehensive list of Console Commands, Switches and Keybinds.
Furthermore in the server browser the Pings for some servers may appear incorrectly as unusually high or low - if you find the Pings don't display correctly or if you just don't like the default AA Browser you can switch to the 'Game Spy Browser' option (See In-Game Settings) to browse servers.
Offline Mode Even though America's Army is primarily an online game, you can practice offline to gain familiarity with the maps, weapons, and general dynamics of the game, not to mention allowing you the opportunity to thoroughly tweak control, graphics and audio settings at your own pace.
It is strongly recommended that you spend some time practicing offline on all of the more complex maps. Start America's Army and open the Console (press the TAB or ~ key). Type "Start mapname" (without quotes) to open a map, where mapname is the name of a particular map (e.g. All the mapnames can be found in your \America's Army\Maps\ directory. To be able to move around and fire weapons, you will have to choose a character class.
If you've passed the Special Forces Tour (See Training above) and you have 15 or higher Honor, then whenever you join a Special Forces map and select a free Special Forces soldier slot, you will be assigned the SOPMOD M4A1 with the modifications you've chosen for the M4A1 in the Weapon Mod screen. There are four sections on the M4A1 where you can attach a mod: the Top, Front and Bottom Rails, as well as the Barrel.
Each rail has a Heatshield by default, but you can add options like the M203A1 grenade launcher, or M68 Aimpoint sight where available.
Some things to note about weapon mods: Once you've chosen your mods here, they are saved automatically so that you can use them when next on the relevant map.
