Nice list, but everytime I look for free shooter lists always the some ones come up. Guess no-one is starting any new projects. The only one which i saw that's new and VERY good is XONOTIC, it's actually "Nexuiz reborn." Google it, you'll see what i mean.

Anyone know which FPS or shooter have LAN support or allow own servers? Thanks.

A Good Webmaster said...

Hey, I just want to say that you are doing this wrong.
Every game should be a post.
High quality of reviews + large number of posts = A Great blog
And I'm only saying this because you have potential.

Where is Gunz The Duel?

freeshooters said...

It's not an FPS, Gunz is in the "Other free shooters" list.

Anonymous said...

F.E.A.R Combat is also free.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, I just realised it's in the sci-fi list. But I thought it's modern. The online/mutiplayer version of F.E.A.R is just like these games. It doesn't have much (if any) sci-fi material in it. Guns, maps and charactors are very believablly modern.

HeaVyMenTaL said...

I tested all these games and most are not free you must pay to get the best weapons and items, and some of them are dead or not many players or servers and some the sites and all download links are dead anyway yall go ahead and waste your time...

CF is the best one, i played it for 2years then my sisters laptop got restarted so i didnt re-install it. Lots of hackers on CF but its a great game.

Urban Terror is the one i have been addicted to for a bit now. has unique wound bandage and healing, also when u jump u can powerslide building momentum and when u jump against a wal u can walljump off of it as well. also climbing onto ledges and such... very very good game and LOTS of mobility. there are some hackers like all these games but Most servers kick and ban hackers... Raw Server is the one i use most. and I am an admin there. Come get ur facecut off by me!!!!! THUNDERLUNG!!!
