October 2016 Update #2

A new update has been released!

This update is optional. However, I'd recommend that you update any servers you are running.
Clients will automatically update via Steam when the game is restarted.

The update just fixes a few bugs and isn't all that exciting. You can view the changelog @ http://www.garrysmod.com/2016/10/28/october-2016-update-2/

October 2016 Update

A new update has been released!

This update brings the following to Garry's Mod:

  • Peer-To-Peer friends only mode - Enable this to only allow friends to join your games
  • Substantial updates & optimization to Sandbox and User Interface
  • NPC networking optimizations
  • Numerous crash & security fixes
  • New main menu backgrounds created by the community
  • Numerous Physics gun improvements

The update will be automatically downloaded when you restart your game.
All servers will need to be updated before you can play on them.

Thanks to everybody who helped with testing the update and reported bugs/problems.

You can find full changelist here.

Please do not panic if when you join a server you get "Server is running an older version of the game" - let the server(s) update to the latest version of the game first. Just wait a few hours at most.

It can take up to 15 minutes for the update to propagate through Steam.

“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.
