Morbus combines ideas from a variety of popular Garrysmod gamemodes and retail games. Players must make decisions on who to trust, who to stick with, and who to kill. Every player’s actions will eventually affect other players in one way or another. Morbus keeps an eerie/scary atmosphere by combining both horrific visual and audio content. Morbus has been claimed to be the scariest Garrysmod Gamemode. Morbus has many weapons for players to choose from, each fitting individual play styles. Fast paced combat and constant “on your toes” moments are commonplace in Morbus.
This is a fantastic game mode. The biggest single thing that makes it better than Trouble in Terrorist Town is that there is something important for everyone to do, even after you're killed!
The mechanics of the game work very well. The human players, due to the needs/tasks they have to fulfill, must work together, split up, and be vulnerable for a while while filling in their need. The guns work pretty well, although I do have a favoured loadout.
As a brood alien, the transforming mechanic is well done, but the skill selection process could perhaps be streamlined to make it easier to place the skill points without alerting the human team. This isn't that big an issue though, since it's easy enough to walk around and hide in a room while choosing the skill points.
Being a swarm alien is potentially a bit boring. The ranged attack is very necessary, but compared to the brood alien, it's still a bit boring to play as a swarm alien.
The only problems I noticed while playing are that some new players don't know that the only reliable way to make more brood aliens is to kill the human players while in alien form. Some kind of quick tutorial they are forced to see when they log in may help with that, if they're willing to read directions.
This is a gametype that anyone who owns Gmod should try. It's suspenseful, atmospheric, and has very well thought-out mechanics that do an amazing job of balancing the experience for everyone.

Imagine 'The Thing' but in the form of a Garry's Mod game mode or Zombie Survival+TTT. In other words, the best game mode on Garry's Mod or ever.The average round will start by you scourging for the best weapons you can find, then you will begin moving towards your first objective. On your way you may find other people who are heading to the same place as you so for protection you head towards your common objective. Once you arrive you ask your new friends to watch your back as you eat or sleep…
