Presenting voice acting update

Hey folks, we released yesterday a huge update to our character voices, those used for taunts, commands and the funny death rattles. I'll be explaining another upcoming voice related feature too: the announcer.

New voice acting

As you may know, we had the same cowboy voice repeated for vigilantes, desperados and rangers, but no more! The classic voices created by the voice actor Michael Phillips will only be used for desperados team from now on. Vigilantes and rangers get all new voices, both performed by voice actor Gianni Matragrano. Here's how they sound:

Props to Gianni for his amazing work! There probably will be new voice acting for bandidos as well, as soon we find someone apt for this role. The idea is to recreate all their lines so we have all the set instead just the taunt ones as is now.

About This Game

Fistful of Frags born years ago as a Wild West themed modification for Source engine. It has been completely renewed for its Steam release, paying special attention to combat mechanics.

Also note this is a completely *free* standalone mod, no micro-transactions exist, no registration required. Just install and play. You may see ads when joining certain third party servers that host our game for free. That's however completely unrelated to FoF dev team, we do not profit from them.

Features

  • Shootout (classic death-match / Free For All) and up to 4 teams death-match: non stop, all around action. FFA supports ladder based global ranks.
  • Teamplay-objective based game mode: zone capture or 'push the cart' levels.
  • 'Break Bad' mode: team based death-match like mode featuring custom rules as unarmed players that get you jailed when harmed and different objective based missions that grant cash to buy better weapons
  • Team Elimination mode (ranked): kill the entire enemy team once at least to win the round, highly tactical and suspenseful mode
  • Versus mode (ranked): 1 vs 1 duel matches, each map features different arenas, fair match creation based on player rank/skill
  • Detailed dual wield system: double dynamic crosshair, weapon flip for extra accuracy options, drop or throw your handguns as projectile attack
  • Advanced multiplayer bots for off-line practice
  • Historical black gunpowder based weapons as Colt Peacemaker/Navy/Walker, S&W Schofield, Volcanic pistol, Deringer, Smith Carbine, Sharps rifle or Henry Rifle
  • Customization options: choose primary/secondary weapons and special perks
  • Skill based scoring system: the more skill required to accomplish an attack, the higher score is
  • Source Engine 2013: community managed dedicated servers, LAN support, 3rd party level design and user customization allowed

Pass the whiskey!

It's fun and it's free, so give it a try. It has it's share of flaws, but for each of its issues there are two things the game does right.

PROS
  • It's free
  • It has whiskey in it
  • At least it attempts to immitate real western guns
  • The controls are intuitive
  • The hit detection is good
  • Skill is rewarded
  • Runs on a potato

CONS
  • Too few game modes
  • Annoying melee weapons, the bow feels out of place
  • Overpowered kicking
  • The Colt Navy 1851 is not a Colt Navy 1851!

As someone who has been playing tihs game for awhile I can say it is fun and worth the download since it is free. The only problem is I am unsure if it will remain this way in the future. Many somewhat recent updates have ruined parts of the game. Balancing used to be mostly good, but recent updates have favored "competitive" play rather than fun arcadey style which makes the game enjoyable. Nerfs to the buying system made certain weapons essential useless (such as TNT) most of the time due to their unnecessarily high relative cost to buy in deathmatch modes. The new assist system also I've found discourages cooperative play and instead causes some forms of selfish gameplay when it comes to getting kills and is overall less rewarding for headshots and other difficult kills since it is likely that even if you inflict over 100% damage you will still get only half the points for a kill. Map redesigns have also took away most long range gameplay and instead encourage most encounters to occur within a small area. Overall though the game is still fun and I'd reccomend giving it a try.

Download this game. If you are browsing the reviews, wondering whether the (rather small) download is worth it, just go up there and hit the play button. This game is INSANE for being free. No pay to win, no in game ads, no microtransactions. I love this game so much its unreal. The only problem is that the community is pretty small. So, the only problem is one the dev can't even fix. I haven't encountered a hacker or cheater (though I'm sure there's a few out there), I haven't encountered a screecher, hell, I haven't even encountered a spawn-killing Russian.

It's amazing that a Half-Life 2 mod could become one of my favorite multiplayer shooters ever. The gunplay is fantastic, and that's really the only thing that matters. There's no progression system, yet I've been playing for over 50 hours. There's no microtransactions, every weapon and map is available from the very start. If you're a fan of westerns, this is a must-play, if you're a fan of FPS's, this is a must-play. If you have even the slightest interest in either, just play FoF. It's free btw.

Fistful of Frags has unique gameplay that differs and shares features from most shooters I've played:
*The movement speed has no instant velocity, meaning there is a noticeable acceleration to players' movement.
*Most/all weapons are inaccurate by design, requiring good aim, slow movement, or close-proximity to hit targets.
*If you drop >1 story, then you'll be taking a good deal of damage.
*Game modes like Deathmatch utilize a buy menu system akin to Counter-Strike, with weapons and "perks." A third option in the buy menu allows for preference in left, right, or left and right hand use with weapons, increasing accuracy with the preferred option.
*Gun Game
*Things like bots are present like any other Source mod.
*Free

Honestly, I don't wish to write any Pro Vs. Con review at the moment, but I guarantee that you will enjoy this game, provided you:
* enjoy slower first-person shooters
* have friends to play with
* try the different game modes beyond DM that FoF offers

Just play the damn game and try it.
