About the Game

Block and Load! Combining the addictive nature of block building sandbox games with the speed and competition of modern first-person shooters, Guncraft takes voxel-based gaming to a whole new level. Players can create maps and arenas based on anything imaginable and, once complete, can utterly destroy them with bullets, bombs, grenades, tanks, helicopters, gunships, and much more. In the heat of battle, soldiers can create custom blockades and fortresses instantaneously. Watch out – just when you think you’re safe, enemies can tunnel through walls and dig through floors to ambush you from behind, above or below!

In addition to standard modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag, Guncraft offers over seven outlandish game modes like Lava Survival and Racing Mode, plus 100% customizable load-outs that include perks, weapons, vehicles and more. Even better, the core crafting mechanics of Guncraft are available throughout every aspect of the game, enabling players to build maps, prefabs, characters, and weapons on the fly, then decimate them all to take down enemies.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Voxel design coupled with hardcore FPS elements: Player-controlled vehicles, perks, killstreaks, class load-outs, clan system, and ranks.
  • Create custom levels, weapons, and characters – you are literally only limited by your imagination!
  • 7+ outlandish game modes for up to 16 players (Online/LAN), including:
  • “Lava Survival” – Magma slowly rises as players build upward to avoid the instant orange death. It’s a new variation of “Last Man Standing”.
  • “Onslaught” – Four players band together to fight off endless waves of deadly robot spiders, soldiers, drones, and aircrafts.
  • “Spleef” – Players drill and destroy blocks on the platform near or under their opponents in order to cause them to fall to their deaths, while fervently avoiding suffering the same fate.
  • “Siege Mode” – A building and prefab centric game mode where two teams are pitted in a race to build a trebuchet-style catapult first. Be sure to defend it, else you get your structure destroyed by the other team.
  • "Racing Mode" – Race to the finish and blow up everyone in front of and behind you in the process! You can even team up with a friend for some double dash style action in the fast paced new game mode!

Steam may say I only have a few hours, but I've played it for hundreds of hours back when it was on Desura.

This game had potential, but turned out awful due to poor execution.



Let me start off with the gamemodes. Some game modes are good, some are bad, some are okay. There are 8 gamemodes: Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Lava Survival, Meteor Survival, Siege, Spleef, Onslaught and Paranoia .

-The Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag gamemodes are all exactly what they sound like and follow the typical model.

-In Lava Survival, lava is rising from the bottom from the map. If you touch it you die. The last man alive wins. When players shoot each other, they don't die, but instead they are frozen for a short duration of time.

-Meteor Survival is about the same as Lava Survival, except you are surviving from lava meteors falling from the sky.

-In siege mode, two teams must build an outlined structure while preventing the enemy team from finishing theirs by destroying it. What usually results is that instead of working to help complete the structure, the prepubescent children which your team consists of will all just be running around and killing enemies. Alternatively, they will rocket-spam the enemy structure. Since the rate of destruction greatly outmatches the rate on construction, the match usually goes nowhere and it ends in a draw when the timer runs out or everybody leaves the match. This is by far the worst game mode of all.

-In spleef, you shoot and destroy the blocks beneath other players so that they fall to the lava at the bottom of the map and die. There isn't any skill requirement, people just run around in circles. It's pretty much a copy off of minecraft spleef. This is also a particularly awful game mode.

-In onslaught, you and three other players defend against wave after wave of AI monsters. This includes mainly kamikaze spiders, enemy soldiers, giant underground worms, and occasionally something else. The game ends when your entire team dies.

-In paranoia, one player starts as the zombie queen. The zombie queen runs around and tries to infect survivors by meleeing them or using on her abilities. After this, they become zombies and try to infect other survivors. The survivors of course run away or shoot the zombie threats. The game ends when all the survivors become zombies, or the zombie queen and all of the zombies are dead. However, there is minimal distinction between zombies and survivors. You'll instinctively see anyone you see, and if that's a survivor, he will become a zombie and your guns will be revoked for 15 seconds.You'll likely lose. This another poorly designed game mode.


Onto the gameplay and mechanics. They're horrible. I have never, ever, in my entire life played an fps as flawed as this one. I don't even know where to begin. Here's a list of all the problems;

-Match Size. It's capped at 16 players.

-Netcode. It's really bad. I can be playing on an official server, and everyone in the server will have a perfect connection with low ping, but yet the game still has lag problems. I've had times where I would shoot and kill someone, only for the game to say they died 3 seconds later. This means that it would have to waste an extra 3 seconds as well as the rest of my clip to finish an enemy. That bit of time lost on killing the enemy plus the time needed to reload can be the difference between life or death.

-Snipers. They have high projectile speed, are super accurate, and have almost no bullet drop. Combine this with the fact that the characters heads are so large and you get a guranteed headshot.

-Mines. You have the option of carrying deployable mines with you. Not only are they insta-kills and have a large blast radius, people spam them near the spawns of the enemy team. Sometimes, getting out your spawn section on some maps without being sniped or blown up by a mine is a challenge all in itself.

-Weapon Balance. The weapons used to be way to powerful. it used to be that if you happened to do as little as enter an enemy's crosshair and you were dead. I once made my own SMG. It had 100 ammo per magazine, shot 25 shots per second, and dealt 20 damage per shot. Unless you have a special perk, you have 100 health. That meant that it would take a mere .2 seconds to kill an enemy. The aim-down sight accuracy of it was rated "40"(500 is lowest accuracy, 2 is highest).

I once used it on a map called "Bridge". The teams spawn far enough away from each other as to the point where the are extremely tiny. When I spawned, I saw a few enemies. I unleashed my SMG. Within less than three seconds, I had completely wiped out the enemy team of eight. True story.

Later on, however, they severely nerfed all weapons (especially customs) as to the point where they are extremely weak. Using the default assault rifle at close-medium range, it now takes over 2 seconds to kill the enemy if you hit every shot. As a result, the gameplay has evolved to the point where people just sprint around (you can sprint super fast, and even faster with the scout perk) the map (or fly using the grappling shot) and instakill you by meleeing you with the sword.

-Vehicles. There is a machine-gun hoverbike, helicopter and tank vehicle in this game. They are extremely strong and get plenty of kills with. They also have very quick respawn times. Consequentially, in maps with vehicles the gameplay begins to complete revolve around them, rather than any infantry gameplay. Also, vehicles are treated like infantry as far as collisions go. They have no armor. Just a large amount of health. Do you remember my SMG I mentioned earlier? It could take down a tank in a matter of seconds. Thus, the vehicles tend to be killing powerhouses which are also destroyed extremely easily.

-Recoil. None of the weapons have recoil. When you're crafting a weapon, there's an option to add recoil if you want, but it's really unnatural and synthetic and who wants to add recoil when its easier without it? As a result, the shooting in this game requires zero, and I mean absolutely zero skill.

The crafting system can be fun, but it isn't very useful/helpful.

-Gunsmithing: You can create a gun with its own design and stats, but after the huge nerf they had, the custom guns almost always pale in comparison to the default ones. Also, the entire process of making a quality gun (one that looks like an actual gun, not just 7 random blocks you spammed together) takes several hours. In addition to that, all guns require an ironsights image (what you see on your gun when you aim down the sights). This will require you to use 3rd-party software to design those images. So ultimately, gunsmithing isn't really worth it unless you want bash people with your giant custom ♥♥♥♥♥ (I'll admit this is the one part of Guncraft which I think is kind of fun).

-Prefab Making: Prefabs are pre-made structures which you can put down. In the editor, you can design them. The problem is that to place one in a match, you need money to do so. A good prefab can be really expensive. Also, when you choose to build, you must wait for it to build. It will construct itself at a couple blocks every few seconds. It is a super slow process and isn't viable for the high-speed gameplay of guncraft.

-Map making. The game comes with a map editor. With a ton of time and effort, you can actually make something decent.


About the community:

The community of guncraft is long dead.There once was a time where you could always log on and find about 30 players online (Even if most were immature children). Now, on a lucky occasion you can log on and find 4 friends or so playing together, but that's about it. If after I've said you still ended up getting this game, then you'll be stuck all alone. Playing with yourself.


TL,DR: Mediocre gamemodes, poorly done shooting mechanics and gameplay, mostly useless crafting system, and dead community.

Don't get this game.

This game is pretty good, especially the fact that there's Workshop support, allowing you to create your own weapon and use it in battle. Although there may not be lots of players, the game is still great no matter what and isn't a must-have, but is a game you should get if you're looking for a game that merges MC and COD/BF.

This game can hardly be described in one word, but the word that resonates through my mind is "unique." That statement may have you confused because of the game's obvious similarities to Minecraft. Some people may not be able to turn from that mindset, but I will tell you that this is not a Minecraft clone with some first-person shooter sprinkled on top; it's a unique first-person shooter with Minecraft-like elements embedded into it. The game certainly has its flaws, but these are mostly outweighed by the unparalleled involvement in the community and readiness to improve the game displayed by the developers.
Guncraft does not simply encourage creativity. It provides the best possible tools and environment for endless customization, and that doesn't apply only to aesthetics. Everything about the game—weapon appearance, weapon performance, maps, player appearance, playstyle—is extremely customizable. For example, if you're about to play on a large map full of vehicles, you could choose your class with a sniper rifle and anti-vehicle gun. Since this class wouldn't enable you to be very mobile (you wouldn't have a space left for a hookshot, which allows you to quickly travel places), you would have a jetpack as one of your multi-kill rewards in order to traverse vertical obstacles quickly.
If you don't feel like making something of your own—which I highly recommend—you can always go pick up some amazing stuff off the workshop. If you do want to create something yourself, you will find that it's quite easy. If you want to dual-wield a gold-plated chainsaw with a grenade launcher attachment, go for it. When you're building, instead of having a 1x1x1 area that you can place a block in for days until you finish your project, you can adjust your brush size on every axis by pressing keys; you can even use offset, which will move the brush along any axis away from the block your reticle has selected. Any color on the RGB scale can be used in gunsmithing. Shading really improves the quality of a weapon, even if it isn't very detailed.
I highly recommend this game. The things that I assume turn people away are the name, the similarities to Minecraft, the fact that it's Greenlit, and other smaller things such as the terrible "block and load" pun and its childish appearance. At least give this game a try if you have an extra fifteen dollars or want to experience something new. I've made use of every cent, and gotten much more than I paid for.

Guncraft, a first person shooter with building unlike ace of spades, it takes it a bit more far by adding the ability to create and guns from players not the creators. Though default ones. Prefabs are sniper power upgrades. Guncraft go's farther with classes by adding in " Grapple hooks " and custom classes that ARE GOOD looking. Variety of guns to choose on default! Creators are not greedy and want players to join and so do the people. Ace of spades has shaders and no dynamic lighting. Guncraft has Dynamic lighting and the full optization of freedom you will enjoy! Believe me, I am a true support. This game has such a great community, this game honestly is recommended for 13+ because they are probally mature enough not to do anything dumb. Unless not mature enough. This community is very mature compared to allot of first person shooters. Believe me. The people are incrediablly nice. Guncraft always needs your help, Guncraft ain't just a game. It's your foot, that can make a difference to help Guncraft. Guncraft ain't your oridinary shooters. You start with allot of good guns. Good guns in the workshop. This game is related to: Brickforce ( Careless in details ) and Ace of spades ( Popular, but too much memory ).

This game does not take as much system requirements at all unlike Ace of spades. So be-aware of that. So join guncraft, it's a block and load with rockets!
