And this is how you update a map: presenting new CrippleCreek!

Today we release an upgraded version of one of our most appreciated maps, take some time to check the impressive new visuals and gameplay changes.

CrippleCreek, created by our fellow level designer and artist RedYager, was part of the mod before Steam version. The original map, for those who didn't played it, was way larger and included caves, more creeks and a longer train section. We had to rethink it for a more death-match oriented game as the standalone version is.

RedYager decided to push the boundaries again and here's the new version. I won't describe the changes because these images should speak for themselves:

Feel free to share your feedback with us, we are always looking forward to any improvements.

Halloween update released!

Hi partners, our Halloween 2015 update was released today. What's in there may you wonder? We have extended the shootout game mechanic quite a bit by adding a new power-up...

The Ragged Madman

The new power-up exclusive for Halloween mode is a short period of 30 seconds where player becomes an unstoppable killing machine. It grants bonuses such as:
  • 2 Peacemaker revolvers
  • infinite shots, no need to reload
  • walk by using an innovative butt based technique which results in no higher inaccuracy while moving!
You become a ragged madman by picking up green potion bottles, a meter tells how much potion is needed. They can be found on top magic cauldrons or dropped from other players and ghosts. Ghosts can't be killed by firearm or blunt weapons but they can be taken away somehow... (hint: explosives or fall from high places!)

Three Halloween themed maps, featuring the renewed CreepyCreek!

This update is also special because we are adding a vastly improved version of our classic map fof_cripplecreek by RedYager. In this case its Halloween variant 'creepycreek', the daylight version will follow in next update. There's new visuals and the layout for a few key areas has been redone completely, hope you enjoy it!

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.


  • Classic death-match and up to 4 teams death-match: non stop, all around action
  • Teamplay-objective based game mode: zone capture or 'push the cart' levels.
  • 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

Fistful of Frags is a half life 2 mod dedicated to the wild west. It feautres a unique game style which rewards people on their notoriety which involves being able to be diverse in killing even using less powerful guns, killing people in different ways, getting kill streaks, ending kill streaks and shooting hats off people. Hence the player with the most kills may not be in fact the winner. Anywhere up to 40 people can be in a match which is usually utter mayhem.

Unlike other shooters which require running and gunning, this one dictates that you stand still and aim properly so that your rewarded with greater accuracy. It also authenticates the guns of the old, by making them weak, slow and rather heavy slowing down your speed.

Undoubtedly you will experience novel moments in the game like when I ran out into the street with no ammo just to realise that someone had my head in their sights, just as they were to pull the trigger a train runs over them. Talking about the trains its fun trying to hijack them, or confiscate a toilet demanding privacy, or play a concerto to a audience of axe weilding madmen. Probably the thing that had me most in hysterics is to crawl up to the back of a horse and shoot it in the backside. I won't ruin the surprise, but let's just say that the developers have all class.

There is now a competitive league for this game that showcases professionals at work. Having said that everytime i personally log into the game it feels like i'm up against these professionals. Take for instance when my team logged in to go against a few hispanic children. It was like the battle of Normandy but with sniper rifles. The game could hardly keep up with the amount of times it needed to respawn my team. The hispanic children were gunning us down every four seconds and if that wasn't bad enough, they were also using voice chat taunting us in several languages to show how versatile they are. These children were so professional I have no doubt that they were even multi-tasking while killing us, like stroking their cat on their lap between shots.

Hence I have a love/hate relationship with this game. The bots are often ridiculous in their difficulty and I never see a way to make them more docile so that I can learn the mechanics. The kicking system will have sniper players raging, there is no map in the game which prevents close combat forcing skillful sniping, two kicks from a player and your dead. Its easy for your character to get snagged in doorways and on furniture. Having said all that the beefs I have with the game are trivial if you are to play this game with friends. There is much to be enjoyed here and it's completely free.

The main developer has hinted that there are new player models and animations soon to be introduced in the not so distant future. There has also been a large amount of chatter in regards to steam workshop compatibility, steam inventory drop items and a co-operative mode against a constant wave of enemies. It's the developers dedication to his product and his listening ear to his fans that makes this completely free to play game worthy of a slot in your library.

With that in mind don't forget to crawl up to the back of a horse and shoot it!

Player: "What does black dynamite do?"
Me: "It's like regular dynamite except it screams 'n*gger' when it explodes."
