Overview

The Phantom Forces Community Testing Environment, or CTE for short, as its name suggests, was a testing environment created by AxisAngle for Phantom Forces moderators that wished to test out various changes and potential future updates. The CTE is currently closed with the test place as its replacement.

History and Details

The Community Testing Environment was created on the 3rd of January 2017. The parent group, PF Community Improvements, is owned by AxisAngle. There were many differences in the CTE compared to the main game, such as the fact that guns and attachments in testing were available. Guns in heavy testing were either unavailable or had a higher-than-normal rank to be unlocked. At rank 0 all guns were available, but the attachments were not, except for the attachments they were testing, which required a single measly kill.

One must have been aware that the CTE was a testing place for unrefined additions, so flaws, unfinished content, and bugs were to be expected. As a result, the normal Phantom Forces became the suggested game for normal and stable playing.

The CTE was closed down for good once the July 4th, 2017 update was pushed to the main game. The CTE will remain closed forever and never reopen.

A new testing environment has been created by StyLiS Studios to test new and upcoming features that might be published to the main game.

  • Some pictures may not have Trello links due to the content not having a page.

In the case that a photo of an in-game attachment cannot be found, a picture of the attachment in real life will act as a substitute. (If it actually exists and there are images for it.)
