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.

Time for a little FAS status check, except this report won’t be so little. Firstly, there is still no set FAS release date yet, but we plan on keeping these news posts frequent and keep you informed of our progress. That being said, we are much closer to release now that the maps have since been optimized and the UI menus are progressing nicely.We have also had quite a few art changes, as well as stability fixes to cut down on crashes for our initial release.

Time for a little FAS status check, except this report won’t be so little. Firstly, there is still no set FAS release date yet, but we plan on keeping these news posts frequent and keep you informed of our progress. That being said, we are much closer to release now that the maps have since been optimized and the UI menus are progressing nicely. We have also had quite a few art changes, as well as stability fixes to cut down on crashes for our initial release. To get the full update log for the past week, check the list at the bottom of this post.

Additionally, we were recently donated a new SG55X from The Lama and Thanez in order to meet the raised standards of our weapon art. Resident animator, Mr.Brightside, is currently animating the SIG SG550 series. This weapon will replace the SG550 and SG552 that is currently in-game, and also provides the opportunity to add the SG550 Sniper to our arsenal. You can check out the weapon and the WIP animations in the video below.

The video above contains sounds from BF3 merely to provide context for motions in the animation

This time he will be streaming both our Stability Testing at 12pm PST/3pm EST, as well as our Competitive Testing at 6pm PST/9pm EST. He will be giving away another $20 Steam Gift Card at the Stability Testing, and will give out an additional $20 Steam Gift Card during Competitive Testing if he reaches 50 concurrent viewers. Show up in numbers for your chance to win some free Steam cash! You can view his stream and previous videos on his Twitch.tv page: Twitch.tv.

I like how when you're on a streak you start to think you're invincible. Then someone caps you and it's back to real life.

Glad to hear there will be constant updates, not that you guys havent before, there were just timely gaps inbetween. The first release was a good start, but I had a crap computer at the time and the maps would slow my fps right down in areas. This thing wont. Hey is there anyway to add some stat tracking to the mod? Total kills, Total Deaths, etc. aswell as per weapon? I guess that sort of stuff is uploaded to a server or cloud. hmm, it is a nice thing to keep servers alive tho.
