Modular Combat is a role-playing shooter based in the Half-Life universe. There are over 50 modules that can be upgraded at any level, in any combination. Modules give combatants amazing abilities such as flying, teleporting, spawning minions, and shooting flechettes or energy balls.

Here we are again!

We at Mod Fidelity want to thank you guys for sticking by us through our ever-so-long development cycles. We appreciate that you stick around even when we're not telling you what's going on behind the scenes.

Today we release Modular Combat v1.76b. This is a series of bug fixes and re-balancing that will help ease the pain for our players as we get v1.77 out the door!

Here's a quick list of what's happened:

  • Poison Spit: Increase projectile speed, re-balanced damage
  • Specific resists no longer affect all damage types
  • Combine Balls now only deal 175 maximum damage
  • Turrets will no longer fire when frozen by Freeze Grenade
  • Added teleport blockers to various maps
  • Other various bug fixes and minor rebalancing

As short as this list is, we expect that these changes will improve gameplay all around. Especially since these few bugs can cause major havoc on the servers.

Join our new forums! Become a beta tester!

We have been working feverishly on the next version of Modular Combat, and the time is nigh for an on-going beta test. We have secured a server with the wonderful people from Nuclear Fallout Servers, and will soon be opening our doors to roughly 25 hopeful applicants!

I'm happy to say, I LOVE this mod. I haven't played it in awhile now because of all the newer games out but I always come back to it in the end. Plus, it's just damn addicting to play it.

I can't wait to see what the next big update brings about...

You will be able to punt cars, but you will have to charge up your Gravity Gun to do so.

I can't comment on the level max, but it is something that we have considered.

In the current build, you can throw cars, and that'll probably stay.
As for the level limit, custom servers can now change it, but it'll probably stay for now on official servers.
