You Are Not Ready - Frenzy Mode Gameplay in Insurgency: Sandstorm on CTE

RealRambino -

New World Interactive released Frenzy mode for Insurgency: Sandstorm on 31 May as a new arcade mode on the Community Test Environment (CTE). It is a cooperative mode that is sort of like a hardcore version of Call of Duty’s Zombies or Left 4 Dead. As with the other cooperative modes, you and your team must travel through the map capturing objectives, repeal counter attacks, and destroy weapons caches.

What’s different in Frenzy, however, is that the enemies are all “zombies” that have no weapons aside from their trusty kukris. What do have, however, is insane speed, perfect accuracy, and a myriad of special powers, such as the 6’10” juggernauts (a.k.a. PUBG zombie), screaming pyros that explode in flames, and stealthy teleporters than can even get to you through closed doors.

The mode is punishingly tough and extremely fun. It’s a big departure from the gritty, realistic middle east combat you are used to in Insurgency: Sandstorm, but in my opinion its a welcome break from the often sweaty normal modes. Frenzy is perfect for getting together with some comrades, tossing back a few beers, and squealing like schoolgirls as Mr. PUBG laughs off your bullets and rips you apart.

I'm UselessFodder, leader of the FoddSquad, the most inclusive, positive, and curious outfit in space! I was a communicator and space professional in the US Army for 9 years, but after I got out in 2017 I longed for the tight-knit group that I had enjoyed with my brothers and sisters in arms. So I created the FoddSquad as a group that is protective and fiercely loyal. Because when you are conducting operations on the far side of the Moon, you want to know that the men and women to the left and right of you have your back, no matter what.

We form up at every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday starting at 0730 EST / 1330 CEST and conduct training in Realistic Hardcore First Person Shooters like World War 3, Insurgency: Sandstorm, Escape from Tarkov, Ground Branch, Squad, Arma 3 and more. Brew up some coffee, don your suit, and remember: There is room in the FoddSquad for everyone.

If you would like more recruitment information, or just someone to talk to, I can be reached on Twitter or Discord (
