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 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.

Here is the press release from the Firearms Team:

Hey folks, I hope you have all started enjoying the awesome fragging of Firearms Source. With already filled servers and 2 server patches available, Firearms Source is sure to cure your sweet tooth of FPS ownage. Bringing you back to Quake style gameplay with realistic weaponry content, you are sure to enjoy our first release. Please head over to our website, or download the client on ModDB.

IMO this does not replace Insurgency. They're quite different has a whole.

I like insurgency better, the whole leveling up and picking gear for your char is really confusing imo, I could never find a load out I was actually happy with.
