OverviewOverview

Phantom Forces Roblox is a popular shooting game on Roblox. Phantom Forces isn’t available on iOS or Android. It's a shooting game played in an online arena in teams. Although it looks simple, it offers a high skill challenge similar to Battlefield. Players need to develop an understanding of the geography of each location, handling of each weapon as well as other movement and strategic systems to do well.

The games are fast, chaotic and exciting with 16 vs 16 battles in 13 varied locations around the world. You can use a huge and ever expanding list of weapons, including knives as well as guns in 7 unique game modes:
  • Team Deathmatch - two teams face off against each other.
  • Flare Domination - capture and hold key points on the map for your team.
  • King of the Hill - capture and defend central location on the map.
  • Capture the Flag - steal enemies flag and return to your base.
  • Kill Confirmed - kill other players and collect their dog tags to score points.
  • Gun Game - each time to kill someone you get a worse gun (VIP Only).
  • Infection - when you get killed you join the team of reapers (VIP Only).

As you play you progress slowly through the levels, gain access to more weapons and some free currency to spend in the game.

Content Rating

This game has been rated PEGI 7.
 
User-Generated Content: This game includes content created by other players, such as maps, outfits and items, that are not reflected in the game rating.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Roblox is rated PEGI 7 and ESRB EVERYONE 10+. However, this does not address Phantom Forces content specifically, as it is considered User Generated Content.

In addition to the official rating for the Roblox platform, parents should note that although the violence and war theme is depicted with cartoon-like graphics, the game includes pixilated blood and dead bodies that remain on the floor and tumble down hills after they are killed. On PC the visuals are more detailed and include blood when characters are shot, which can be turned off in the settings. On Xbox and PC you can turn dead bodies off via the “Spawn Ragdolls” option.

You can access Roblox games without a subscription, although many families choose to pay for a subscription that grants access to features and Robux currency in the game without the risk of individual transactions. Outside the game, you can make larger purchases.

The subscription grants 450 Robux a month as well as discounts on buying more Robux and access to selling and trading items with other subscribed Roblox players. The games generally encourage the spending of Robux to progress as a proportion of the money spent goes to the person who creates the game. This game is free to play. Additional in-game purchases are offered for items that enhance the experience. Some of these purchases (known as 'loot boxes') are for a chance of getting rare/higher-value items although common/lower-value items are more frequent.  

You need to purchase a Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online with Xbox One.
 
As you play you level up to get new guns and attachments. This also grants you credits (CR) to spend and reduces the cost of weapons. You can fast-track this progress by purchasing more CR with Robux that are paid for with real money.

Guns: There are 100's of guns and attachments to purchase. One of the most expensive is the Heckler & Koch G11 assault rifle that cost 42200 Credits if you were level 1 in the game. 42200 CR costs about 4000 Robux which would cost about £46/$50.

Cases: Weapons can be customised via cases and keys. These are either earned by playing, or purchased with credits. The cases show you what they might contain but you don't know what they will contain until you open them, although they do state the odds of what you will get.

The most expensive cases cost 250 CR and require a 500 CR key to open them. This is about 75 Robux which would cost about £0.75. However, you can open multiple cases to obtain 6 items to trade in for more rare versions, which can increase the potential costs. Also, before opening a case you can also pay to specify which weapon it is applied to, otherwise it is applied to a random weapon.
