Get Trigger Happy With These First Person Shooters

We’ve all been there, trying to find the next title to scratch our trigger-happy itch. Here’s a list of the Top 10 fps games from past, present, and future; to narrow down your search.

10. Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: New Order Gameplay

If you’ve ever had the urge to absolutely wipe the floor with wiener-schnitzel lickin’ Nazis then this game is for you.

An unquenchable bloodbath of epic proportions is unleashed as the player customizes weapons, utilizes cover, and formulates plans to eradicate the fascist force.

It is a narrative driven experience, with a tight story that really engrosses the player, but plays essentially like your classic FPS shooter.

Who would’ve thought killin’ Nazis could be so fun?

9.  TitanFall 2

TitanFall 2 Gameplay

TitanFall 2 completely innovates the FPS genre making the player character agile and capable of traversing long distances very quickly. This added movement augmentation completely flips the script on usual FPS matches. 

Players have access to a myriad of differing gadgets and abilities as well as giant walking mechs, called “Titans”, which can be piloted by the player character and offer a distinct edge in combat. Although there is a single-player campaign that was inspired by buddy cop films and Half-Life 2, this game’s real draw is its addictive multiplayer.

There are multiple types of Titans to use, each with their own pros and cons, but even at their worst offer amazing advantages in-game. Who wouldn’t want to play a game where you’re essentially the Iron Giant?

Talk to the hand.

8. Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown Gameplay

Hunt: Showdown is a spooky monster-slaying first-person experience. There are various creatures to kill through either Day or Night missions like: spiders, zombies, armored zombies, and something called the “Butcher”.

It is a highly competitive shooter with bounty hunter type mechanics. When playing through a specific mission, aside from watching out for other players, who are also after your bounty, one must first find three clues that will lead them to their objective. There, they must kill the creature, “banish” its soul, and then escape the area. It’s different, certainly, but an enjoyable experience all the same.

And considering it’s still in early access, there’s much more to come. This isn’t your typical, run of the mill shooter, it’s not for the faint of heart.

When you see your reflection in the monitor…

Nothing to panic about.

7. Call of Duty Black Ops 4

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Gameplay

Call of Duty has unfortunately suffered from the disease that seems to plague all FPS games at some point, cookie-cutter syndrome. Where each installment is just the same mechanics over and over again with a few bells and whistles tacked on.

But this installment makes the list simply because we know the potential in which Call of Duty has to succeed, and their newest additions to the formula, making it more tactical and easier to chew for fans and new players alike, has us really hyped. They’re not only revamping single-player, multiplayer, and zombie modes, but also adding a battle royale mode.

What more could you want?

BONUS ROUND

Some honorable mentions before our top 6:

Bonus Game: Battlefield 5

“Battlefield 5” Trailer

Although little is yet known about the newest installment of the Battlefield franchise, it is promising to be a powerhouse of a title. Most details are being kept under wraps, but it has been officially announced, and we are eagerly looking forward to its release in October. Keep on the lookout for official reveals from DICE!

Very steampunk.

Kinda get a Wonder Woman vibe, no?

Bonus Game: Insurgency: Sandstorm

“Insurgency: Sandstorm” Gameplay Trailer

The sequel to the franchise that has over a million copies sold, the newest installment plans to bring players back to what made Insurgency great, while making some improvements along the way.

Current features that are available in game include bullet drop and ballistic physics as well as vehicles and multiplayer modes.

Even though it’s in a closed alpha state right now after cutting the single player campaign, things are looking up for this tactical shooter.

I have you now…

Get to tha choppa!

Bonus Game: Metro: Exodus

“Metro: Exodus” E3 Gameplay Trailer

The highly anticipated sequel to the Metro franchise has been announced, looking for a release sometime this year, but has still kept a majority of the information surrounding it behind closed doors. The first-person shooter blends survival, stealth, and horror elements in a single player story set in a post-apocalyptic Moscow.

Critically acclaimed for its immersive atmosphere and enthralling storytelling technique, this title comes with a ton of hype.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful.

Only YOU can prevent forest fires!

6. Fistful of Frags

“Fistful of Frags” Gameplay

Fistful of Frags is a Western take on the Valve Source engine. Playing very similarly to Counter Strike, players engage in Team Deathmatch modes using a variety of Olde West weaponry to completely destroy the opposition.  While originally released as a mod, it has since been completely released as its own game, focusing primarily on combat mechanics. Incredibly simple yet mindlessly addictive, Fistful of Frags is definitely worth checking out.

Reach for the sky…

It’s over Clem! I have the high ground!

5. Escape From Tarkov

“Escape From Tarkov” Gameplay

This game is hardcore. Despite not yet being released and still in its testing phase, the lack of HUD or crosshairs increases difficulty tenfold, but also allowing players to really immerse themselves. Like Hunt: Showdown, this game is not for the faint of heart, and even sports some RPG elements in its survival/shooter chassi like an in-depth loot system. Although the game is still in a state that needs optimization, it gets a lot right.  Needless to say, we are very excited for its release, as it is proving to be a refreshing and  innovative addition to the genre, despite needing a little more tweaking.

Check those corners rookie.

4. PUBG

“PUBG” Gameplay

It’s common knowledge at this point that PUBG is one of the most popular games of all-time, which is deserved. While pioneering the battle royale subgenre, PUBG adds in weapon customization, vehicles, and larger maps. Although this subgenre is beginning to gain traction, and as such is subject to cookie-cutter syndrome, PUBG remains refreshing in the fact that each match is unique, and the more you play the more you begin to build your own strategy, and find out what works for you.

After parachuting in, players loot as much as they can for weapons, armor, and consumables, before enacting their plan to secure a Chicken Dinner. It also has a more realistic graphics style akin to Tom Clancy titles rather than games like Overwatch, which is a tad more cartoony. It still boasts a highly active community and can only go up as more content is released on a regular basis. Drop in and load up.

Don’t you die on me!

If you don’t move, they can’t see you...right?

3. Overwatch

“Overwatch” New York Vs. London Highlights

The definitive game in esports, Overwatch, developed by Blizzard, has been a must-play since its release. An amazingly balanced, class based tactical shooter, Blizzard’s titles focuses primarily on team composition and compatibility in order to secure a win. Of course, technique plays a huge role in how a match can turn out, but with the right build you can have a massive advantage.

Players take control of one out of an ever-increasing roster of characters, each with their own unique playstyle and team role. Blizzard has done exceptionally well with releasing content, whether its season specific events, new maps or game modes, everything gets circulated regularly, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping.

There are three (really, four) roles to choose from: healer, dps, tank, and support. With these roles in a well-balanced team, victory is within reach. If you’re a fan of teamwork and extremely rewarding gameplay, definitely check this one out.

The gang’s all here!

There’s something behind me isn’t there?

2. Rainbow 6: Siege

“Rainbow 6: Siege” Top 10 Plays

The newest installment in the Rainbow 6 franchise is a great direction for the genre. While playing like a standard shooter, Rainbow 6 has a little bit of everything, and at the moment has the most accessible modes of play for players, selling copies in various editions for discounted price.

Players play through various “situations”, whether single-player or multiplayer, using one of, yet again, an ever-increasing roster of Operators, each with their own unique abilities, gadgets, and playstyles. Ubisoft also likes to deliver DLC in different seasons, usually along with a unique gamemode, map, and pair of operators.

The game is extremely tactical, and depends a lot on communication between teammates and thinking outside the box when collecting recon and demolishing walls. A huge leg-up in this game, is information on the enemy team: what operators they’re using and who to counter, where the objectives are placed, sightlines, cover placements, and team placement. Knowing where your enemies are half the battle.

All aboard the hype train!

And I just had the floor redone…

1. Counter Strike: Global Offensive

“Counter Strike: Global Offensive” Highlights, Oddshot Plays

Probably one of the most famous franchises of all time, Counter Strike perfects the system with Global Offensive. Aside from being a huge presence in esports from what seems like the dawn of time, the community of Counter Strike has continuously grown since the release of the first installment. While still being the same game at heart despite balancing and optimization, as well as a gigantic graphics overhaul, it’s still the fast-paced “get gud” game we know and love. Players start each match as either a Terrorist or Counter-Terrorist and must either complete an objective, like planting a bomb\killing the enemy team, or denying an objective, defusing the bomb/killing the enemy team. It’s remarkably simple and outrageously fun. This title is a must-own for the FPS enthusiast.

BOOM! Headshot!
