Double Action Boogaloo v 1.2.2

I love these rhyming version names.

That's correct! Double Action has received another slew of bugfixes and balances, changes and enhancements.

Punters will notice some additions to the scoreboard, as well as upgrades to spectator mode. Bots can now mantle and climb in some spots, and the hitmarkers for incoming fire will now dynamically scale with game resolution, making for a clearer impact on larger screens.



Our more experienced superfallers will notice that "WORTH IT!!" is now doled out less liberally, making for more intense and rewarding skybattles.

Additionally, gameplay has been tightened and bugs squashed, and the votekick system has received a tweakin. You can view the changelist here

As usual, if you're making maps be sure to show us what you've got! Now get in there and RRRRRRUMBLE!

Double Action: Boogaloo v1.2.1.2

Hello fellow Double-Actionists!

Just a tiny update concerning mostly the non-Windows users.

  • Linux users no longer crash when entering observer mode (already released on 2016-06-18)
  • The Mac build is now up-to-date and thus compatible with the servers again (thanks rezidue)

Btw, if someone knows how to build the Mac port on Linux, please share, as that would make updating the Mac build a loooot easier :)

About This Game

Double Action is a free stylish multiplayer game about diving, flipping, and sliding your way into action movie mayhem.

What's Double Action Like?


Imagine doing a backflip off some dude's face, then diving through a window, gold-plated pistols firing in slow motion. There's an explosion behind you and somebody's stolen your briefcase full of money.

Is that enough action for you? Multiply it by two for Double Action.

So, it's like a Micheal Bay movie?


Don't talk to me.

So, it's like a Freddie Wong movie?


Hell yeah! Now you're talking!

Are there weapons? I like weapons.


Yes. Yes you do.

  • The Sentinel 9* - A 9mm pistol
  • The Stallion .45* - A .45 caliber pistol
  • The Undertaker - A 9mm sub-machine gun
  • The Mac Daddy - A .45 caliber sub-machine gun
  • The Persuader - A combat shotgun
  • The Vindicator - A fully-automatic rifle
  • The Black Magic - A burst-fire rifle
  • Your Fists - They pack a mean punch
  • The High Explosive Grenade - For when all else fails

* Pistols also available in dual wield style.

This all sounds very stylish!


Style is good; we like style. Choose a style skill for specialized action:

  • Marksman - Improved gun handling and extra firearms damage
  • Athlete - Faster speed and better stunts
  • Bouncer - Deal more damage when brawling
  • Reflexes - Super-slow-motion and bullet time
  • Nitrophiliac - Extra grenades, more explosions

What's the objective?


Double Action is a no-holds-barred battle royale interspersed with objectives to survive checkpoints, capture the briefcase full of money, and hunt down the wanted criminal.

How much does it cost?


Don't be ridiculous, it wouldn't be very stylish if we charged you. Double Action is free, just download and play!

What would happen if CounterStrike, Unreal Tournament and The Matrix had a cocaine-fuelled orgy? Well, here's your answer:

Double Action: Boogaloo

The only game I'm good at.

A free shooter without microtransaction bullshet, grind tedium, or any of that matchmaking nonsense? No way. The good old days?
It's a standalone HL2 full conversion mod on the original Source engine so it has great performance and server browser. Of course I have yet to experience any crashes or slowdowns of any kind. I've only seen one bug and it seems rare.
The UI is great. Very professional looking for the most part.
It's like a cross between Action Quake 2 and Max Payne. Pretty straightforward arcade gun battle mayhem. Except it's absurdly acrobatic. No ammo limits, just keep reloading. And mini modes in each round to keep the action moving across the map (like hunt the wanted, kill the leader of the race across the map, deliver the briefcase.).. The ballistics and sounds feel fairly solid as well. The maps are generally well made.
Sure the graphics are pretty old, it's only death match, a couple maps could use a little more varied spawn points to get the full use of the map rather than always around the same intersections, and otherwise could use some better and more character models, and it does get a little repetitive seeing everybody bounce around for a while. But fuc|< it, it's free. It's addictive because it actually feels fairly skill based and the absurdity of it all is hard to take seriously so you end up actually having fun. 8 shot pump shotgun that feels satisfying is a nice cherry on top.

You know that part of that action movie where the hero jumps and slides, guns blazing, slow motion? Repeat that endlessly and put it into a game.

That's Double Action: Boogaloo, and it's dang fun.

As successor to the Specialists, Double Action: Boogaloo does a bang up job! Very true to the style of the originator that spawned this title. The action is great and the gameplay is manic! Could definitely do with some more updating but for now this game is FREE and DELICIOUS... a sentence not ushered on Steam very often.
I hope that through playing and keeping the interest alive the updates will come, and, undoubtably glorious! xo

This game is astoundingly superb. I picked it up and right away I felt immersed in the quick action, and the movement game. Me being a fps player, it was easy to shoot with the fast-paced movement, and twitch shots happen quite frequently in this game. All I can say is it's fast-paced, full of action, has amazing sound effects, and always wakes me up when I'm feeling groggy. I can say without a doubt, this is the best free fps shooter I've ever played (exception for Tf2, but I like this game equally for reasons that Tf2 can't support)

Free download, runs on a lower end PC (just making the asumption it does because I have a powerful PC, but the game is obviously not the most demanding program)

Well worth your time.
