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.

Welcome to our new bi-weekly news update with some new FA:S content. Firearms: Source's development has been progressing very smoothly, and each day we are getting closer and closer to our public beta. Over the past few updates we have been receiving help from our community, and have been impressed with the new team members helping us along.
First we have PS_Crossfire, created by me. This is an original map with a focus on intense close quarter combat. The layout is fairly linear with a lot of intertwining routes. This new addition will help differentiate our map line up while conforming to the classic FA gameplay we all cherish.
Next up, we have 2 new weapons to show off, both of which have been textured by our fairly new Team Member, Dr.Hubbler. The first weapon we have to showcase is our M3 Shotgun. This brutal inclusion will yield some lethal close quarter combat on the FA:S battlefield. The M3 shotgun, also modeled by Schmung and animated by Thisismyname09, will be semi-automatic opposed to the usual pump action. It will be our only shotgun for our first release candidate.
Our second model we will be showcasing is the very old, yet classic, M79 Grenade Launcher. This single shot grenade launcher has been an FA staple for as long as we can remember. We have done wonders balancing this weapon to make sure that it can flush out sniper and machine gun nests, but also reduce the spam levels. This specific model was created by the same art team as the M3 shotgun, modeled by Schmung, textured by Dr.Hubbler, and animated by Thisismyname09. They are doing a great job at plugging in some great art to FAS.
Keep checking www.firearms-source.com as we'll be having bi-weekly updates up until release.
Also we are still looking for someone with Source specific character animation experience (specifically with compiling) as well as self-reliant, talented artists. If you are interested you can contact me at Shinobi@firearms-source.com
