I'm not enjoying the gameplay. It's okay, just nothing special. My biggest complaint would be the level design and poor optimization.

haven't had that problem, are you sure your hitting them, the AK in full auto is horribly inaccurate, you would need to get in there face for every round to hit *which I find nice since that's how a real one to be* if you want a AK that is 100% accurate in full auto go play insurgency.

The mod has a lot of potential but jesus, slow the gameplay down, and sort out the weapon damage because it is horrendous. Make it a bit more geared towards realism like insurgency. I'm sure when these things are sorted out it will be great. Its constructive criticism here.

Yea, because they totally want to copy another mod instead of doing their own thing?

The world DEFINITELY needs another realism mod for gamers to try and be the soldier they're too wussed out to actually be? :p

Might as well copy insurgency gameplay rather than counter strikes.

It says right in the description of the game that it is quake style gameplay, that means fast action.

kidfox Jul 29 2010 replied:

Nope, it's meant to be fast and not severely-realistic.
Otherwise it'd be just like Insurgency..and thank God it isn't.

Valve's "fu**ed up css update" added achievements(which you can turn on/off on a server to server basis), which you even suggested this mod should have... and engine optimizations, damn them, right!?

Has all the parts to be a great follow up to firearms but it really isn't put together well and is pretty much a mess. Hopefully it will get better in updates but i think i'll just stick with urban terror for now.

fpsdoug Jul 25 2010 says:

This game doesn't need a fix, it needs to be taken back to alpha, beta, and then re-released.

Releasing an unfinished game will only garner the support of the hardcore FA fans, while alienating the newcomers because of its clumsy mechanics and lack of polish.

plasmasword Jul 26 2010 replied:

I've seen a lot of unfinished mods released having a lot of support from the community. I was really looking forward to its release, but now... Watching the gameplay videos, I don't even want to download it.
I think the gameplay is a little bit too rigid and unbalanced. Well, i guess i'll wait for "the rising" now.

Damn, all this bitching is making me wanna reinstall source to try it out even more. I was an avid FA fan back in the day. I will always believe that mod beat the hell out of every team based goldsrc and source based mod I've ever played.

Even the modern FPS games don't stand up to it. From Halo to MW2, none compare.

This is an excellent mod and remake of a traditional HL1 Mod the only problem i have is the extremely odd recoil

As for the people below you all need to STFU as with all games and mods coming out THEY ALL NEED PATCHING AND FIXING YOU CANT JUST COME OUT WITH A PERFECT GAME was the original Firearms perfect at release? Far from what it is today as with any other mod patience = key

A decent game overall. The gameplay isn't much different than any other game. But the selection of weapons makes the game more fun. The downside to this game is the damage (getting shot 3 times up close with a shotgun should kill the enemy, or even a sniper to the head.. even if they are wearing heavy armor), sound effects (hearing gunfire up-close/behind while the battle is far from you), spawn points (should have the ability to chose the spawn point, even if it's just 1 flag ahead), and small maps (though not big of a deal, it gets boring real quick).

Main Suggestions:
-Fix the damage on guns, make them noticeably different.
-Realistic Damage.
-Update the sounds of the guns. I don't want to feel like I'm back in the 90's.. even though the 90's were pretty awesome..
-Some animations needs to be fixed (ex. shouldn't stay zoomed while reloading with sniper rifle)

Fun mod, I like the different weapons, but please for the love of god FIX THE SMOKE LAG, I think it might be a problem with Nvidia cards seeing as how my friends older ati does not have this problem but for some reason the Nvidia chipset does.

the Barret needs to be reworked its too powerful, also when can we expect old school firearms cross hairs that where a semi translucent sprite of the real weapon ironsights *such as the cross hair for the Beretta looked like "..." the three dots and what not.

Installing Firearms: Source

Game Requirements: You must have Steam installed and own any Source engine game that allows you to download the Source SDK Base 2007. If you do not own a Source engine game and are low on cash, you can buy Buy Half-Life 2 Deathmatch on Steam for $5.00.

Download the game from one of our many mirrors on the Downloads page.
Download the Source SDK Base 2007 - located under "Tools" on Steam.
Install or extract the game in your SourceMods directory (..\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\).
Restart Steam if it is currently running. If everything worked, you will see Firearms Source on your games list.

Yeah, CSS and DoD had a DOWNS baby with an extra limb protruding from the forehead.

This game needs to be reworked and rethought out.
The people who made this game tried so hard to emulate the original, that they broke it.
