“Average community rating”
9.5/10 – Desura

“Running with Rifles is the kind of game that you think you know how to play, but after you die a dozen times in a row you'll realize it's not actually about running around with rifles. [...] This ain't no arcade game!”
Co-Optimus

“This game stands out as a truly iconic shooter. With the vast range of gameplay aspects as well as the addictive style and pace, this game is truly one of a kind. War games have been done before, but never to such a free and open extent.”
10/10 – TheSmilingArsonist @ Desura

About This Game

RUNNING WITH RIFLES is a top-down tactical shooter with open-world RPG elements.

In RWR, you join the ranks of an army as a common soldier, just like the thousands around you.

The open world approach lets you define your own path and story in the campaign. Push back the enemy with your comrades or go deep behind enemy lines to sabotage their efforts and loot valuable items.



As you gain experience, you are promoted with higher command over soldiers and equipment. Call in artillery fire missions or paratrooper reinforcements when the situation gets tight! Use your squad to man armed boats, tanks and APC's, or, become the expert lone wolf you always aspired to be - it's up to you!

  • hundreds of locations to explore from trenches to towns, deserts to snowy valleys
  • emergent AI that will question if you're as smart as you think you are
  • realistic cover system
  • dozens of different weapons, support and cover items, radio calls, vehicles
  • side objectives to keep you busy: destroy radio towers and other assets, steal cargo trucks, rescue prisoners
  • 40+ multiplayer support, dedicated servers, coop, PvP, PvPvE
