Gutter Runners is a first person shooter Half-Life 2 modification that brings you face to face with your opponents in the city of Skavo and the surrounding areas. Human forces must defend the city at all costs while the stealthy rats attempt to invade.

Gutter Runners was originally designed as a “fast mod” to be completed in a couple of weeks. As Mattias and Niclas continued to work on the mod they realized it could become much more than just one man and one rat. The mod began to evolve as new ideas and concepts were implemented culminating in the Gutter Runners you see here today.

Now players can choose from six different classes in all and play across multiple battlegrounds. The defending human forces consist of the watchman, marksman, and assassin, while the infiltrating rat forces have access to the stalker, warlock, and defiler classes. Each class is armed with unique weapons ranging from a standard sword to a lightning shooting claw. Battles are fought on the streets, rooftops and gutters in and around Skavo.

At long last we have reached the final stage of the first Gutter Runners release.
About a year ago we started this project as a small scale mod and
could never presume that it would grow so immensely. From being
1 on 1 deathmatch to the teams City Watch and the Gutter Runners.
A game that bring you action packed treasure hunts in medieval
landscapes and citys. Men VS Rats.

in the past week. PC Action and PC Games; the readers of both have had the
opportunity to play an early release. And for them we have a patch:

I saw a post a little while ago on your website that hinted Gutter Runners might be rising from the ashes! I, for one, would love to see this happen!!!
