Modern Combat is a series of first-person shooters developed and published by Gameloft.

The first game in the series, Modern Combat: Sandstorm, entered the scene in late August 2009. It was quickly regarded as one of the best mobile games ever, because it had unique gameplay and graphics for a mobile game. It reached the top charts on both Android and iOS. Sandstorm was removed from the App Store in September 2014 for no clear reason.

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus was released a year later, in October 2010, and was praised for its enhanced graphics, gameplay, multiplayer style, and overall quality.

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation was one of the most anticipated releases, because it utilized a new graphics engine, with all new content, including killchains, 12 player multiplayer, and more.

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour was released on December 6, 2012, and introduced even higher quality graphics and lots of new and different content.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout was the first game developed by Gameloft Bucharest, in contradiction to all other games being developed by Gameloft Montreal. The release of the game was delayed multiple times. Opinions about Blackout are extremely different, see #Reception
