FPS Games

Be Gone is a free to play, in - browser Multiplayer First Person Shooter I discovered a few days back, and I think it's pretty good*

*
( Click to show/hide )
I have not played any multiplayer online FPS games besides this one.
That being said, I suspect it would not match up to the current console titles {PS4 , Xbox, etc.}where graphics and such are concerned - after all this is a free game.

Be Gone

The only requirement is the 'Unity Player' plugin, and the game runs quite well even on my very outdated computer, with only an occasional webpage reset to keep running smoothly.
If I can play it, most certainly anyone else reading this can too.

The game features 6 different maps:

Warehouse
Courtyard
Tower

Timbertown
( Click to show/hide )


My favorite~!



Crane
and Pipeline

The game:

2 teams, S.W.A.T. Vs. Militia, are as you find them with players jumping in and out of the game; the number of people you start a game with often changes as time goes on.
Each game consists of 2 - minute rounds to 10 wins, you can leave at any time, and you can switch teams at the end of each round.
{handy due to the fact players are constantly coming and going, often leaving the teams unbalanced, and you can find you've suddenly become a 1 man army at times}
There is no telling how long or short a game may be, for instance, I just finished playing a game I thought would never end due to the fact the teams were evenly matched.
Actually I left that game to return here and finish this post, and the score was 9 to 8 at that time.

In - game 'cash' is rewarded to players {for various 'achievements'}, which can be used to buy better weapons and upgrades for use during each individual game.
Note:
If you exit one map for another during a game you will not bring your earned cash and purchased weapons with you and will have to start over.
When one team gets 10 wins, the score is displayed one final time, and the game resets.

Weapons:

Although the selection of weapons for purchase is limited {5 main weapons, 3 secondary, and grenades}, each basic type is represented and follow typical characteristics.
New weapons can only be purchased while you are dead and during a short interval at the beginning of each round.
Modifications, alternate ammo, and accessories can be purchased at any time during the game {I recommend using at least a couple as getting a kill without them is nearly impossible}, and the number of these available makes up for the limited weapon selection.

Note:
Switching weapons during a battle does take a second, a full second, during which you are vulnerable.

I've said it so many times {but yet don't often follow my own advice} :

Remember the Ammo - Low, and RELOAD~!


Most players I've encountered so far understand not everyone is a master at FPS games and tolerate my noobness, but I did get 'Votekicked' from one game when I got killed twice in a row early in the round, but it's no big deal because there are always more servers {currently active games} to choose from for each of the 6 maps.

It's a relatively quick game without any commitment, and overall people display a good attitude, often posting 'GG' {good game} in chat as the scores get displayed.
I'm interested in what you guys think of this game.
As I said I'm entirely new {GREEN} to the multiplayer FPS experience so I'd really like to know.
Come kick my butt sometime maybe~!

My Be Gone handle is:Kagutaba

( Click to show/hide )
taken from the movie Noroi: The Curse - a very good Japanese Horror movie, made in documentary format - you should check it out.

Correction: there are only 2 available secondary weapons.

Addition: there are 2 game modes available:

'Elimination'
{last man standing}
and
'Sabotage' , where each teams' side of the map includes a timed charge which, if activated by the opposing team, will explode and result in a win.
This is a variation of 'Capture the Flag'.

I'm really enjoying this game and I hope some of you are too.

re: FPS Games

I thought I replied to this but I guess not. It looks like an ok game JG but nothing special. You should log into Steam again sometime and check out all the FTP FPS games they got, I'm sure you'll find a few you like. Then you might get some of us to join you because we'll see you online playing it

Remember a while back I was trying to get in on some Team Fortress 2 games?
While I was installing the Steam {thingy, whatever it is} I made 1 mistake {in the graphics settings, which are vague and unclear} and it wouldn't allow me to correct it.

I'll have another look, but right now I think BG is pretty fun and a good place for me to practice.
You see, online multiplayer FPS games are a new thing for me.
You guys would just be disappointed if I were to play against you until my skills improve.

I'm certain this was just some minor mistake that can be easily fixed. I'm usually online after 9-10pm EST if you wanna give it a shot.

By all means keep playing if you're having fun. I'm just letting you know that Steam has tons of games you might like and it's a million times easier to meet up with online friends.

re: FPS Games

So I thought 'Kagutaba' was a cool and unusual username, but now I'm not so sure.
According to the source {where I found it, in the movie 'Noroi: The Curse'} the name is a combination of 3 kanji characters: 'disaster', 'tool', and 'spirit'.

What's interesting is that, while it is possible to combine these words using Google Translate they look nothing like those shown in the movie, and if you type 'Kagutaba' and translate to Japanese, then back to English you get:

'Furniture bundle'

Sounds a bit less impressive, don't you think?
It reminds me of things you would find at IKEA or something.

^
A glimpse into the frightening inner workings of my diseased old brain.
This is why I don't do well in social circles - because I think of nonsense like this all the time.

---------- Post added 02-06-2016 at 03:24 PM ---------- Previous post was 02-01-2016 at 07:41 AM ----------

Ok so as it turns out, 'Kagutaba' actually is formed from 'disaster', 'tool', and 'spirit' ; and this is what happened: the Japanese language is quite complex and uses different kinds of symbols when written.
Japanese writing system
Because of this, Google Translate mistook which symbols would be used and displayed different ones than those used in the movie, thus creating an entirely different meaning.

A bit more ON TOPIC:

In case Be Gone isn't enough for you and you need something with better graphics, sound, and more unlockable upgrades
Contract Wars
is another free - to - play, in - browser First Person Shooter, however this one includes optional premium content.
One other small difference is that you have to create an account to play.

re: FPS Games

UPDATE:

1. Would someone please change the title of this thread to 'FPS Games' or similar?
- I wasn't thinking ahead and would like to e x p a n d this topic if I may.

2. There are so many people using cheats on Be Gone it isn't even funny - something called 'Cheat Engine' as I understand it.
Makes it no fun to play against invincible enemies, and it's the shits because I really liked the game ..

3. I've tried quite a few different FPS games now but some have system requirements too high and the lag is too much.

Let's talk about a few I can play {on my outdated potato}, the following games seem to be made by the same person and feature identical weapons:

Masked Shooters

Free to play, Unity Player required.
2 Maps {variations on a theme} and 2 game modes: Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch {free for all}
4 - 16 players.
9 weapons always available, no upgrades.
10 minute, individual rounds.

While the graphics are simple, the gameplay is solid and only occasional lag on 12 or 16 players servers.
As far as I can tell, there is no cheating on this game {unless you call RPG spamming cheating}

Masked Shooters Singleplayer

Same as the Multiplayer version where gameplay is concerned but with 4 maps:
City
Bunker
Factory
Industrial {this map is very large compared to the other maps and the NPC's have much more aim time, making them harder to beat.}

9 weapons available with different loadout options.
2 - 10 players, teams or free for all.
The game auto - ranks you depending on your performance; right now I'm Colonel Kagutaba.

Arena Shooter

Pretty much the same as Masked Shooters except this one includes the Singleplayer version on the same site, and there is only one map - a Roman Arena, however there is a pocket dimension {essentially an alternate map however smaller than the main Arena} accessible through portals.

9 weapons always available.
2 game modes: Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch {free for all}
2 - 12 players.

Don't ask me how but I'm actually pretty good at this one compared to my performance on other games:

{click on leaderboard for larger leaderboard}

arena-shooter-leaderboard.jpg

I'm #3 today; it seems I've got some competition to knock out to reclaim my #1 spot~!

Generally I don't brag but in this case I think I need to say that if I create a 'room' and put my name on it {Kagutaba} people who know of me won't join in.
1 of 2 things happen when I join in a battle:

1. Everyone leaves shortly after I start to win a Deathmatch.
{beginning with those RPG spammers, by the way}

2. Everyone joins my team {Team Deathmatch} which makes the game lopsided, so I switch teams after a while.
Then people start to leave.

What blows my mind is how I get the drop on people whose 'ping' is much higher than mine.
A couple of days ago, someone was bragging about their '1000 ping' in chat, so I told them:

'It's not the size of your 'ping', but how you use it.'

Re: FPS Games

Thanks for the title change, much appreciated.


So it's been a while I've been playing these games and I'm starting to see methods in the way people play FPS games.

For example:

'Camping'
is one method of playing I'm sure most of us have heard of; I knew about this one even before I began playing online multiplayer.

( Click to show/hide )


A player finds a semi - hidden place to hide and 'camps' there, typically using a sniper rifle to pick off enemies that come into range.

These next ones I came up with.
Let me know if this ground has already been covered and I'm re - inventing the wheel here.




'Team Players'
as the name implies, involves 2 or more players teaming up and combining their firepower to take down enemies.

( Click to show/hide )


Clearly this method is natural to Team Deathmatch games {or equivalent} but these players use it in free - for - all {straight Deathmatch} games as well; while they could kill each other, they kill you instead.

'RPG Spammers'
do just that - spam Rocket Propelled Grenades.

( Click to show/hide )


Typically these players run and/ or jump around in an attempt to make themselves more difficult targets, presumably to compensate for the weapon's slightly longer reload time as compared to that of other available weapons.
I must add that while this method is effective and provides 1 - shot kills with slight splash damage over a given area, it pisses other players off immensely due to its cheap - ass nature, the proof of this is seen when, after the spamming has gone on for a while, players leave en masse and the game is essentially over.

Nothing clears a game room faster than RPG Spammers {not even Kagutaba} sure, they may rack up a good score but it takes the fun out of the game for the other players as using this method requires very little skill, making it akin to 'Farming'.
By the way, I stick with the MP5 almost exclusively and change weapons only when I occasionally run out of ammo; even so, using the RPG just feels so cheap and easy to me, like using a cheat or something.

No wonder it pisses people off - in fact, I make these guys my primary targets, right next to snipers/ Campers.

'Zombie'
is almost always a player who is simply AFK who takes a while to return to the game, however when they do return and suddenly spring to life it adds a surprise, like the undead rising from the grave.
{after serving as free points/ meat puppet for the other players for X amount of time, being easily found and killed at typical spawn areas}.

( Click to show/hide )

( Click to show/hide )


One variant scoots off to some secluded area and stays there for an extended period of time, only to return long after everyone believes they left the game entirely.

Yup that's a common problem in FFA matches. I was playing this game the other day-
and three dudes locked down an area with two archers and a third guy covering them with melee classes. They weren't unkillable but they ruined the whole point of the match. Eventually I just started throwing smoke bombs at them to be annoying.

I must add that while this method is effective and provides 1 - shot kills with slight splash damage over a given area, it pisses other players off immensely due to its cheap - ass nature, the proof of this is seen when, after the spamming has gone on for a while, players leave en masse and the game is essentially over.
You mean like this?
A whole class based on rocket spam and jumping/flying around.

My brother does this. He'll play for a while and then just go afk for a while doing stuff. We used to play Shadowrun a lot and the community is very small so he got a reputation for disappearing all the time. I remember one time I met some people and after talking for a few minutes I mentioned he was my brother and they got mad quick and started talking shit. It was pretty funny really. I feel bad for peoples time being wasted but it's just a game.

Shadowrun is probably my favorite FPS btw. I gotta load it up again before it dies completely.

Do you mean that this 'bot aiming' is a cheat of some kind?
What is 'chamming'?

Combat Arms, eh?
Looks like zero chance I can run it on my comp, but it's an interesting game and I found this video.
I love how this guy gives a concise play - by - play just like a Sports Announcer/ Commentator:

Looks interesting, the random cards are an excellent idea, and fit perfectly with that style.

Funny you should say so; I encountered a very similar situation the other day in Masked Shooters Multiplayer Deathmatch I was looking around the map for the other players, and kept getting hit by a sniper, but had no idea where they were.

For that matter I had a hard time finding anyone until I saw a player climbing a ladder and followed them, only to find ALL of the other players standing on top with sniper rifles .. I felt pissed off about it, so I mowed them all down with my MP5 and left.

That guy is a rocket - spamming sonofabitch ; for that matter, what the hell is with the rapid fire on that weapon?
If it has such high damage with splash then the rate of fire needs to be slower/ reload needs to be longer.
Whatever the case he's the kind of player I target first; if I see a player with an RPG or similar I kamikaze their ass.

Is Shadowrun an older game?

WHILE I am still having fun playing these games, I've decided to back off trying to remain in first place on Arena Shooter, mainly because it's too time demanding to hold the spot.
The other reason is I met one of the other top players and they're nothing but an RPG Spammer, so like I say, this person is almost guaranteed to rack up points with almost zero skill, and until they get tired of being the 'bouncing bomber' there is little anyone can do about reclaiming the top place.
I'm still looking forward to meeting the other top player but so far have not.

TF2 Soldier is one of the most popular classes and in any given match you'll see tons of them. Taking a surprise rocket to the top of the head is a pretty common way to die. Luckily they added the ability to air blast a rocket back at the soldier, or his buddies-

Yeah it came out in 2007 on xbox 360 and PC(not sure if it works on PC anymore though). It's very unique and rewarding. They let you customize yourself with magic and technology that sometimes mimics cheats. You can do stuff like see through walls, Get a laser that assists your aim and makes you unable to hit friendlies, teleport through walls/floors, ect. It's quite ridiculous.

I ignore most leaderboards because the leader is usually the guy who spends the most time exploiting some flaw in the game.

I never thought of it that way, but I guess you're right; if the game wasn't flawed in some way, even simply by an imbalance of power in the weapons {such as the 4 shot bazooka in TF2} then it would be a lot more fair and that in turn would make leaderboards all the more meaningful.

Which brings me to what I came to say today:

I think being on a leaderboard is nice but to be honest, those points accumulate with every kill or match won, so realistically even the poorest player could get themselves on the leaderboard given enough time.
That being said, I encountered some really good players recently who do NOT spam or exploit anything and one of them was nice enough to teach me a bit about these games in general, specifically regarding a player's 'ping':

I was playing Arena Shooter in a duel against a player displaying a ping consistently lower than 100, but who seemed to be having no trouble keeping up with the game -in fact they were kicking my butt - so I asked them how this was possible with such a low ping?
By the way, mine is usually around 150, which I thought was incredibly poor. {or so I thought, since as most of you know I play on a potato}.



So this person explained to me that higher ping isn't better but is in fact worse .. which I still find hard to believe, but they went on to explain it also has to do with the player's location and distance from the game servers {so I must be really close to one}.
They also said that players who seem to 'teleport' around the screen have high ping and this phenomenon is because of it affecting the refresh rate.
Something like that.

It doesn't matter, these are free to play games I'm able to enjoy - and there's the keyword = ENJOY.
Sometimes I take things too seriously and forget that's the whole point.
Masked Shooters and Arena Shooter are pretty buggy, like Minecraft used to be and it adds a comical appeal at times; when players get killed the animation gets all glitchy and they start to look like some mutant from Doom 64 (Europe) Nintendo 64 , flipping and flailing wildly about, and 'falling out of the world' upon respawning is fairly common too.

Yes, there is a FPS featuring Minecraft - esqe maps, called Combat 3
Interesting, but the gameplay is sort of meh in my opinion mainly because the maps are too small.

The beautiful part of TF2 is how each class has a weakness to the others, or so I think. (SJB can correct me if I'm wrong.) As for Soldier he's weak vs Scouts who can run circles around his slow ass and avoid/surf on explosions. He's also weak vs Snipers since he's so slow on foot and he is a nice floaty target in the air. A good Pyro can ruin his day with that air blast too. Engineer can mess him(and everyone except spies) up with a well placed sentry gun.
I think I gave you the wrong impression with my first video. Most class videos like that will show highlights of a good player doing well. When you play the game Soldiers be dying left and right.

Yeah lower ping is better. Some games have options to filter servers by the average ping and lots of games you'll get kicked by the players if your ping is over 150-200 or so. Speaking of ping and TF2 I recall seeing lots of people on there with ping around 1k. I dunno if the number is just glitched or they live on the moon or something but they slow the whole server down.

You know, I learn so much on this site, it's great!

High ping sure does lag the whole server, and I saw it myself the other day on Masked Shooters - one player had a ping

OVER 30000~!!!




{actually I think it was 36000} and the game was an unplayable mess.

So if you say your guy you saw on TF2 was on the Moon with 1000 ping, then I guess that other guy I saw on MS must have been out near Neptune or Pluto.






Anyway that TF2 MC map was copied on a smaller scale in Combat 3, even including the blue brick houses, only too small.

Re: FPS Games

I actually never really played on the MC TF2 map but I did fool around on it while trading. It even has a nether but it's mostly for show from what I saw. You could jump to some other platforms but I didn't see anything out there worth looking for. No ghasts either

Re: FPS Games

Here's another FPS game I've been playing and I think it may be my new favorite:

Battle S.W.A.T. Vs. Mercenary


Free to play, Unity and Flash required.
Lots of options, starting with 5 general server locations:

Europe
America
Australia
Japan
Asia

11 maps:

Woods
Killhouse
Arena
Pillar
Sork
Shipment
Indy
Kosovo
Labyrinth
Snipe
Shipment V2

But there's more - this game also features a 'Zombie' version of each map {making a total of 22} where one team play as literal Zombies~!
2 - 20 players.
Team Deathmatch or regular Deathmatch, rounds 5 - 20 min.
8 weapons always available, no upgrades.

What I like about this one is that it has very low system requirements and even when there are lots of people on a server the lag is minimal, as compared to other games; in fact I didn't even get lag listening to music while playing.
Another thing worth mentioning is that while the maps are fairly small, there is a great variety of them, also the graphics are sharp and the controls just feel tight and responsive.
