About This Game

Monday Night Combat is a class-based, third-person shooter… and the most popular lethal sport of the future! It blends intense combat, finishing moves, and gameshow-like challenges and rewards to produce an action experience unlike any other. Why fight for “honor” or “duty” when you can fight for the real American dream: cash, fame and endorsements?

Key Features:

It’s the Throwback Throwdown in Monday Night Combat! Uncle Tully’s Funland is now available in Crossfire with new game play features! First up we have Chickey Cantor. He will now spawn in Uncle Tully’s Funland. Make Chickey fly away by shooting him and earn a big single-life buff for your entire team! Wait for Chickey to slam the ground and then you can grapple him. Ride him for eight seconds and earn big money! Just be careful, riders tend to be easy targets for enemy Pros. Secondly we’re introducing new bot spawners. These spawners have buttons for specifically spawning Jackbots, Black Jacks, Slims, Scramblers, Gremlins, Gapshots and Bouncers.

Blitz mode allow players to defend their Money Ball against armies of robots by themselves or four player co-op over Steam. During various Blitz challenges, players can spend money earned by destroying bots to build defensive turrets around the Moneyball, upgrade one of six unique character classes, or set off robot crushing environment hazards. The Challenges vary from a ten round Exhibition Blitz to endless robot waves of ever increasing difficulty in Super Sudden Death Blitz. Money earned from each Challenge goes into a persistent Lifetime Earnings that allows players to unlock over 370 ProTags, create custom classes, and get ranked on Leaderboards.

Competitive Multiplayer
Crossfire mode pits teams of players against each other over Steam. Each team is supported by an endless stream of robots fighting on their behalf; overwhelming your opponent’s stream, upgrading your Pros, and base defenses will be the key to your success!

Customizable Characters
Each Pro caters to their unique style of play and comes with their own set of upgradeable skills. Customize those skills and abilities even further with a variety of unlockable products in the Custom Class feature.

Persistent Stats
Every game of Monday Night Combat earns the player money that goes towards their Lifetime Earnings. Lifetime Earnings can be spent on unlocking custom classes and buying earned ProTags. How much Lifetime Earnings you have also determines what level you are. Monday Night Combat keeps a large set of persistent statistics for all aspects of gameplay. MNC features over 370 ‘ProTags’ which are customizable tags you can show off to other players and friends.

Dedicated Servers
Host multiple instances of MNC dedicated servers with full stand alone client.

Pre-Release Review
Dead by now, but It was incredible when it was released. One of the most fun online games of that year.

A simple fast paced team based shooter with moba like elements, pick from one of 6 classes each with their own unique skills and abillities. All classes have their strengths and weaknesses each with their own personality. Monday Night Combat is my favourite game on steam and always will be! Unfortunately the games playerbase is very limited, but with the help of the MNC community games are organised regularly. So don't threat too much about never being able to play. The commentator of the game spews out hilarious dialogue about your situation and the teams performance, the game even has a mascot that appears on the field that you can shoot for money and prizes!

Join the "hotshotsforever" group on steam to inform you of organised events.

Did I mention MNC is the most lethal sport of the future? ;)

Hiyo! 10/10!

Monday night combat! An awesome but badly now dead game. Your only chance of getting now a game going is by creating an event in this group: And then only with MUCH luck. But well, I give an overview now how this game was back in the day:

MNC is a combination between Dota, Tower Defense and Team Fortress 2 + Third person. You have a moneyball (Nexus) that you have to protect, Bots (Minions) that you have to escort to the enemy moneyball and places where you can buy & upgrade your turrets, to increase your defense of your moneyball. + You have 6 classes to pick in a 6vs6.

Many people who have been playing this game are complaining about the balancing of it. I can say as someone who has put alot of playingtime into it. The balancing is by far the best thing which I have ever seen in a game. Every class is overpowert in their own ways and every class can take on any class if you play smart. And that is why it is perfectly balanced. It was alot of fun back there playing this game. I have never had so much fun in any game as I had here. And the awesome commentator just made it perfect with his funny comments. So it did not even annoy me that there are only 2 game modes, Crossfire which i did just explained. And Blitz which is basically the coop mode, where you have to defend your money ball from the opposing bots without an enemy team.

As I said before, badly the game is dead but it was alot of fun!
