Win a round and upgrade your Bot! Maps, Models and Weapons The Weapon models in this game are kept very simple, much like the rest of the game. Depending on which bot you choose, you will receive an assortment of grenades, lasers, and rocket-type weaponry. The bots are very balanced and easy to get accustomed to. Unlike many mods, you can sit down and play BuzzyBots effectively as soon as you download the game. There really is no learning curve at all. My only complaint after playing for a few hours last night is that it is difficult to tell some bots apart. Sending a Scout against a Heavy bot generally leads to an untimely demise for the Scout... To add one more element to the fray, the designers put in a 3rd party of robots known as the "Skrunks". These mean bots just roam the level causing mischief whenever possible. The Skrunks' attacks range from levitating you into the air to zapping you with an electric bolt. Although not terribly dangerous, the Skrunks definitely...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like BuzzyBots. We love games like Half-Life that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
