Report article RSS Feed Steam release is near.

No more testers needed at this time, thank you all!

Posted by R_Yell on Apr 18th, 2014

Time flies on, a few months have passed since our last news here. Porting our mod to Source 2013 engine takes time, but Fistful of Frags for Steam isn't just a port. Our next version comes with improved combat mechanics and fresh gameplay, it's like a project restart. Here's a summary:

1. Classic deathmatch concepts: respawn, seek better guns in weapon crates or just those dropped from enemies. Replenish health using whiskey (note: also prepare for a full drunkard effect).
2. Skill based scoring system: the more skill required to accomplish an attack, the higher score reward will be. This encourages players to risk instead just using the most powerful weapons they can find
3. Four maps specifically designed for this new gameplay.
4. Deepest dual wield gun gameplay you'll find anywhere. Seriously! Dynamic dual crosshair, drop and pick new guns as you unload them into your enemies. Flip side for extra accuracy options. Throw them as projectile attack! Ah, and 8 handguns to choose from, including the new volcanic pistol.
5. Awesome kills. Kick enemies into water, fire or large falls and get a reward for it. Chain explosion effect: if someone carries dynamite and receives enough blast damage, their dynamite explodes killing them!
6. Steam integration: 16 -out of usual- achievements and progress stats: your best killstreak, highest surviving time, most damage taken or whiskey drunk. Yeah, we record that too.
7. OSX/Linux client. VR headset support and other Source 2013 related improvements.


Thank you all! We have enough playtesters for the moment so I won't be giving more keys around here. You still can join our steam community and try to catch me on the chat ;)

I would love to help test! I love playing Fof (zambees especially). I also have experience in testing source mods. I recently tested an HL2 mod called "Zombies!"

Played the mod a few years ago and LOVED IT. Not many western shooters out there and this was easily one of the best! So I would love to get into the game again. Cheers!

Hey, any chance I could get one? Played some FoF in the past, through few different versions - I liked it, a lot. Thus, I'd like to come back, Steam version seems like a good reason to do so - more players. Oh, and I tested and playtested more addons and mods then I could remember, so if You have any testing group... just tell me :)

Mostly interested in Coop and TDM \ Capture the Loot.

It's been a while since I've given FoF a try but I do have good memories of a time playing it, plus the description of the Duel Wield system in place sounds just great. Might be worth giving it a whack again and help form the version seen by an even larger audience.

First played this back in early 2012, western shooters being rare on the PC platform I instantly installed and played with a couple of friends, been a fan since. I'd love to be able to try out the new features of the mod and give feedback to further improve the title before the official launch on steam.

Not much time lately, but I would love to be invited, from Spain (EU).

Edit: Forgot to say that I'm following the mod since it's beginnings, loved some things back then, like the explosive arrow (not sure if it still there), also liked that you had to charge the bow to adjust distance, a long way since then, back then I had hope for another now dead western hl2 mod).

Have fun, and thanks for reading this :).
