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.
A big release has recently occured in the Source Modding community. The Firearms team has released there first public beta for the updated Firearms modification. It remains true to the spirit of its roots dating back to the gold source engine and is worthy of checking out. Read more inside.
A big event has just occurred within the Source modding community. A classic mod from GoldSRC has just been updated and evolved into a Source beta release. I was personally a big fan of the original Firearms back in the day and have played the new release and can honestly say they kept true to the spirits and roots of what made Firearms so great.
While it is a Beta 1.0 release, it offers a wide variety of content and features. It of course has a few bugs, but for a Beta 1.0 release it's very solid.
Keep your eye on this.

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Firearms: Source. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
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.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. 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 #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
