Smokin' Guns is intended to be a recreation of the "Old West's" great atmosphere. It is being developed on IoQ3's implementation of Id Softwares IdTECH3 engine. This Total Conversion of Q3 includes weapons created with historically correct information about damage, rate of fire, reload time, etc. It also includes gametypes and maps inspired mostly from western styled movies. And to increase the feeling of a "Gunslingers Atmosphere" music tracks and sounds have been adapted to the simulated times. The Smokin' Guns game started its life under the name of Western Quake³. It was originally developed by a team known as Iron Claw Interactive. They released WQ³ beta 2.0 in 2003, after which development all but ceased. In May 2005, development of Western Quake³ was taken over of by a bunch of cowboys calling themselves The Smokin' Guns with the blessings of the former team. Improvements to the game continue to this day! Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.
Aye, amazing wester game.
Even thought the graphics are undoubtly from the last centuries, the gameplay itself is top-notch and can compete with any multiplayer title out there.
The weapons are amazing in both terms, design and technique, the levels are very well designed and remember to a lot of famous western movies.
And last but not least, the soundtrack gives you that one high-noon feel you missed since they stopped to produce western movies.
Also you can adjust the game with a lot of options, a great plus!
A must for each western fan!
this game started as a quake 3 mod, called western quake 3, that was 2001, around 2005 or so, this was released as a full mod called smoking guns, and is now standalone, this is like wild west counter strike and is great that it is still here. the graphics are dated, but still nice lighting effects for its time. this game has aged very well, to be one of the best freeware shooters you can get out there and is must have for free pc or mac gamers and red dead redemption/revolver fans.
