On that Day, Humanity Remembered the Terror of Titan Domination Once More, and the Indignity of being Trapped Inside this Cage of Walls
In the world of the incredibly popular manga series, Attack on Titan, titans that consume people suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Enormous walls were constructed for a temporary peace. When Eren, the main character, turned 10, a giant 60-meter tall titan appeared out of nowhere, smashing the gate and invading. Eren watched as his own mother, family, and friends were swallowed by titans. This fueled his immeasurable hatred for titans. When they grew up, Eren, Mikasa, and Armin jointed the Scout Regiment to learn battle techniques and continue to face the challenge of titans bravely.
The limited time only Counter Strike Online X Attack on Titan crossover level incorporates the armored titan and titans from the manga into the game. Players will face large swarms of titans during attacks and the devastating force of the armored titan boss! Not only will the armored titan pound players approaching it from the front or sneaking in from the back with its giant fists, it is able to jump and is as nimble as a human of average size. It can also stomp out minuscule creatures on the ground just by lifting its foot. Players must carefully avoid being stomped on by the armored titan!
It’s difficult to succeed by fighting the enormous armored titan directly. Players can try to climb up the armored titan’s body to attack its weakness – the nape. Don’t think for a moment that the armored titan won’t notice though, as he will slap his own nape with his giant palms as defense to eliminate all living things within that forbidden zone.

The cable is then retracted with a gas mechanism, dragging the player along at a high speed so that players can battle titans with high mobility. Players will have a greatly expanded attack angle as they leap down from the air to attack titans! Once the gas in the gas can runs out, the player will no longer be able to fight. Players must pay attention to gas levels throughout combat.
