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.

If you are a die hard community member, or someone who is on the fence, please take a look at the game reviews that Planet Half-Life's Eulogy wrote, as well as HalfLife2.net's Hectic Glenn. Both were recently published, allowing you to see exclusive media as well as learn about the dynamics of Firearms Source that make the game stand above all others. On Planet Half-Life you can also read an interview given by Eulogy, which includes thoughts and opinions about the development from multiple developers of Firearms Source. And if that is not enough, check out our new Gameplay Trailer below.


If you have any questions about setting up a Server for Firearms Source, please post your query in our Server forum. You can get help from the community, as well as Firearms Source developers. If you are also looking for hosting, Nuclear Fallout has sponsored and hosted the Firearms Source official testing server as well as our Ventrilo server.

I was somebody on the fence (never played the original) but after reading this, those reviews, and watching that trailer I'm definitely guna give this a go.

You never know, it might even wean me off Insurgency... although that'd be a tall order.

My grandmother does not want to play this, so she doesn't exist, therefore my mother also does not exist and therefore I don't exist, nor do my sisters and some other family.

You killed part of my family tree! :P

Check out the vast and ever-imposing countdown timer on our website (http://www.firearms-source.com) for a very precise measure of exactly when RC1 will be unleashed upon the internet wholesale.

Just for the motivating factor it provides the team, we should always have one of these ticking... even if it resets every month and only ranges between "Cutting it close" and "Where are those models, Naota?!". There is no haste like that of a modder on the clock, minutes before a patch goes out :P.

I hope modders from the HL community will animate weapons for this mod. It's clearly needed.

No offense.

Is this going to be on steamworks?
Sure it will have a lot of player but that number would double if it would be released thru steam.
This mod definitely deserves to be featured on steam!

There are no clearly stated requirements for joining the steamworks. The common used rule is no. of players and ofc popularity of the mod. The final decision depends only on Valve.
