<Half-Life 2> Firearms: Source is a team-based military shooter. Players chose from over 24 modern weapons ranging from the Colt M1911 and Uzi to the M60 machinegun and M79 grenade launcher. Equipment is selected through Firearms' unique Credit system. Upon entering a server, players are granted 30 credits and can then spend those credits on any combination of firepower and body armor they choose, without restriction. Firearms: Source plans to continue adding weapons with each major release.

History

Firearms: Source was started in 2006, but was not the first effort to bring Firearms to the Source engine. Hitman, Airwolf, Naota, Shinobi and others had been working on Firearms: Revival since late 2004, which later changed names and merged with Firearms: Source in 2007. FAS is currently in private alpha testing.
