Firearms: Source is a team based first person shooter, rooted in the traditions of the Firearms mod for Half-Life. Firearms: Source brings the best aspects of Firearms to the Source engine, and then takes them a step further. You'll see a host of familiar weapons and maps, but you'll find the streamlined game play to be faster, focusing on aggressive, skilled play. From nearly the moment you spawn you can expect to be engaged in furious action.

ehh.. people play this mod because it was just released. see in a month or two and you will find far less players. then they will be back to counter-strike or whatever regular game they play (that actually has high quality).

this game needs more fixin' I say
also how do you make the hud text smaller. the death notices cover up too much of the screen, even the weapon selection icons. I play at 1280x1024 btw.

Everyone has the right to express their opinions, and it turns out that there opinions are different than JupiterChild. I said she was trolling because she obviously saw how her previous comment got - Karma and basically repeated the same exact quote knowing that it will also be get - Karma.

Pretty awesome mod.
I like the fast paced action combined with the realistic-ish damage (can't just stand out in the open).
Could use some more polishing (I get some SERIOUS, ludicrous really, amounts of lag and my FPS drops from 70+ to 20-15)
But those didn't really bother me too much.
Great mod so far, keep it up.
woops I forgot I hit the REPLY TO COMMENT BUTTON.

exactly
This is the worst mod I've played. Fine, they did an effort and I applaud that, but it's just like they haven't been thinking at all when they made this, where's the friggin originality!? The awesome gameplay mechanics!? The great mapping!?
The mod lacks all of these things and even more.
It's sad, but it does.

Why does it have to be original? In the first few lines of this update it outright says that this mod is centered around Quake-based gameplay. Who cares if its original, as long as it's fun.

It's not supposed to be "original"..it's the Source version of HL1's Firearms 2.5. Which WAS original back in the day...before "modern" shooters became the latest fad.

Lead and Gold was fun? Fun to be in a server browser, with no ping showing, trying to join 20 different servers before you finally get one; it lags like hell. Also, anything with the word "zombie" in it, isn't original... nor is zombie master fun in the first place.

I don't see how you guys are saying how bad FA:S is running. Update your PC... this mod runs smooth for me. No lag, even when running on WiFi.

corigami Jul 25 2010, 10:18am says:

In all honesty it felt crude and unpolished in almost every respect. The controls were clunky and buggy, I struggled just to zoom in and out with the sniper rifles. Apparently you have to be completely still to zoom in and fire, which was extremely awkward. Sometimes I had to push one key to change a fire mode, and for another weapon I had to push a different key. At it's core, the gameplay was barely more than a hl2dm reskin, only in hl2dm camping wasn't a problem. I do not see the sniper rifles as being balanced. The one hit kill weapon was ridiculously overpowered and it was not fun to play against someone using it. The weapon models and environment art ranged from decent to mediocre, I was pretty disappointed.

There's only one weapon that you have to stop moving in order to fire. It's the M82 and it's done to balance it out. As it stands, it's still overpowered!
