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.
Firearms: Source was just recently acquired by Spiral Game Studios and the Orion: Prelude team! New features and a brand new website... and dinos!

Today, I am proud to announce that the Firearms: Source team has been acquired by Spiral Game Studios and the Orion: Prelude team. Under our new management, we have been able to add a feature that we have always wanted to, dinosaurs. We will also be adding new features like jetpacks, vehicles, and a bonus Nazi Dino Zombie cooperative gameplay! For this, I let our screenshots and our new website speak for itself.
