February 2016 Update

An update has been released!

This update fixes a few regressions introduced by previous update and adds some new functionality for developers.

And thanks to everyone who helped testing the update and reported bugs/problems.

As usual, servers will need to be restarted.
The update will be automatically downloaded when you restart your game.

You can find full changelist here.

Don't panic if when you join you will get "Server is running an older version of the game" - let the server update to the latest version of the game first. Just wait a few hours at most.

“It brings back the silly glee of unbridled experimentation, intuitive learning and playful social interactions that most of us haven't experienced since childhood. For that, it's essential.”

About This Game

Garry's Mod is a physics sandbox. There aren't any predefined aims or goals. We give you the tools and leave you to play.

You spawn objects and weld them together to create your own contraptions - whether that's a car, a rocket, a catapult or something that doesn't have a name yet - that's up to you. You can do it offline, or join the thousands of players who play online each day.

If you're not too great at construction - don't worry! You can place a variety of characters in silly positions. But if you want to do more, we have the means.

Beyond the Sandbox


The Garry's Mod community is a tremendous source of content and has added hundreds of unique modes to the game. In Trouble In Terrorist Town, you can be a detective solving an online murder as criminals attempt to cover up their homicides. Be a ball, a plant, a chair, or anything else in Prop Hunt's elaborate, shape-shifting game of Hide & Seek. Elevator: Source is gaming's first elevator thrill ride, delivering players to airlocks and kitten dance parties.

We have one of the most vibrant Steam Community Workshops, with over 300'000 models, maps, and contraptions to download. It has everything from new tools to improve your builds, to guns that fire rainbow-tinged nuclear blasts from space. Take as much or as little as you need: it’s all free.

Please note: Some multiplayer servers and game-modes might require you to own other games - such as Counter-Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2.

I teach high school physics. I feel this activity would be incredibly good for my students and will be recommending it to all of them in class tomorrow. The way the "Physics" (HA!) gun moves stuff around allows me to teach average velocity/ acceleration due to gravity as things are dropped on the map. Well worth the money out of my teaching budget. Highly recommend for all teachers who don't believe in teaching through the textbook. That's right. The building exceeds wind speed! Hooray....for...Garry's Mod!
