Q.What is Insurgency?
A. Insurgency ("INS") is a total conversion modification (multiplayer) for Half-Life 2, which runs on Valve's Source game engine.

Insurgency takes you across the modern battlefield, engaging in intense firefights and battles as a member of either a highly organized and equipped conventional force (US Marines), or as an unconventional fighter that uses a combination of firepower and bravery to take on their sometimes overwhelming opponent (Insurgents).

Intense realism will keep you alert as you and your team try accomplish the mission's objectives. Specified roles are included within each Squad that make up your team's Platoon. Command and control from a 4-soldier Fireteam, to an 8-soldier Squad, up to a 32-soldier Platoon. A unique point system ensures that online combat veterans will be rewarded for their leadership and tactical abilities so that they can rise through the ranks and command the platoon.

Grab one of the many weapons in the arsenal and join the fight using guerrilla tactics against the powerful enemy, fire RPGs at enemy infantry, or deploy your machine gun to take down entire platoons!

Q. Where can I download the mod?
A. Insurgency is available on Steam, Valve's online distribution system. If you already own a Source-based commercial game such as Half-Life 2 (or any of its episodes), Portal, Counter Strike: Source or Team Fortress 2 you will have Insurgency listed under your "My Games" list on your Steam client. You can install Insurgency from there and you the game will receive automatic updates as soon as they are available.

Q: Will Insurgency take advantage of HDR/Phong, etc?
A: Yes.

Q. How much will Insurgency cost?
A. It's free! You just need to have another Source-based video game to be able to play.

Q. Where can I find more information about the mod?
A. Please visit for detailed information on all aspects of Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat.

Q. Where can I find support / other players?
A. Please visit our steam page at of the forums, located here.

Q. I would like to help, are you looking for anyone in particular?
A. We are always looking for talented level designers, coders or artists. Please see the Help Wanted section of our Moddb for details! If you need to get in touch, jump to our forums!

New World Interactive have released their first content update for Insurgency, Molotov Spring.
The update is free of course! You can grab the game off steam if you don't already have it, or try the mod to see what you could be missing!

This new update for Insurgency will expands upon the experience we delivered in January, with several new game modes, two new maps, an expanded arsenal, and much more. One of the biggest overhauls is with our cooperative mode Checkpoint. Since the version you all have been playing, we have practically re-written the AI code from scratch. The new AI are much more intelligent, and Checkpoint is as immersive and challenging as it’s ever been.

We have been keeping our ears to the ground when it comes to issues people have had with our release, both from a stability and gameplay standpoint. We have addressed much of the instability and crashing issues which plagued certain people. If you continue to have these issues, please let us know and we will work diligently until they are resolved.

As for gameplay changes, we have expanded upon the core game experience quite a bit based on a lot of the feedback we have received. Here is an updated list of the game’s matchmaking options, including the new game modes that have been added. For a detailed explanation of the new modes, please see our full changelist.

Adversarial Match
Game modes that use objective-based respawning.

  • Flashpoint (new)
  • Firefight
  • Infiltrate (new)

Sustained Combat
Game modes that provide players with higher levels of action and respawning.

  • Occupy (new)
  • Push
  • Skirmish

Tactical Operation
Game modes that offer players only one life per match.

  • Ambush (formerly VIP Escort)
  • Strike (former Search and Destroy but with only one cache)
  • Vendetta (new)

There is a lot more information over in the updates section, where we have posted the full changelist [] for the update.

This mod is dying, **** poor players with bad attitudes and horrible servers, no admins, all servers rigged to show more people in them than there are. But thankfully Insurgency 2 is in the works by a different dev team that actually cares about their fan base.

They're an indie dev now, I doubt they'll do anything more with the mod unless they try to go retail with it.

This Mod features a lot of great realism and custom made effects! I love it!
And the great modern warfare concept brings this game mod to the top of all HL2 mods! You cannot play this game for a minute, it simply is too fun, that you would not bother play it for a century!!
Cannot describe the whole map with words. You'll have to try it yourself!
