Combat Arms

What is Combat Arms?

Combat Arms is a multiplayer game, free-to-play modern first-person shooter.


Combat Arms is a software program developed by Nexon. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named combatarms.exe. The setup package generally installs about 88 files and is usually about 4.18 MB (4,386,381 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 58% of users of Combat Arms come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil and Canada.
