In America's Army: Operations, the player is cast into the role of an ordinary American soldier. They must begin the game in offline mode, undergoing several trainings: rifle marksmanship, an obstacle course, US weapons training, and training for military operations in urban terrain. After completing the trainings, participation in the actual game is available, which is played online. Players join the United States army and fight against OpFor, a fictional "opposing force" enemy army. The game relies heavily on teamwork, in Counter-Strike fashion, and strives to achieve a high degree of realism in its depiction of battles and weapons you can use.

Executive producer Phil DeLuca posted a hilarious statement on the game's official forum in which he threatened to involve The Department of Justice, the Secret Service and even the FBI in tracking down cheaters: "you are breaking the EULA, you're misusing Army property - and, worse, you're misusing US Army computer programs and equipment."

He then went on comparing cheaters to the Japanese in the attack on Pearl Harbor and warned everyone for similar revenge: "Let the sleeping giant lie. We may not react swiftly, but when we do it's with unstoppable force. We know who you are, and can track down where you play from. The Army is angry, and we're coming for you."

As the statement drew much attention, it was soon removed.
