Insurgency mod

Another mod here, and probably the most populated mod of all, Insurgency.

Official Website: http://www.insmod.org/
Steam Page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/17700/

Insurgency is a very realistic modern warfare game, with a large community and packed servers it is very popular. All guns are based from real weapons, and are tailored to react the same, with recoil and such, and realism is of the essence, you can die fairly easily, a single sniper shot to anything but a limb is almost certain death, a few bullets in the chest or one in the head and you're gone, and grenade blasts and such are realistic, they will distort you and cause damage if you're anywhere near them. You can sprint, jump crouch, prone and lean left and right, and you can always fall back on your pistol if you need it.

Two teams, Insurgents, and Military, both have custom skins, weapons, and sounds. And there's many classes to choose from, but classes do have limits. You have two squads per team, and those squads have a limited number of riflemen, grenadier, and such. The more limited generally means the more effective they are. Any class if mastered can aid you on a rampage, I got very good at sniper, so I could use cover, use the walls and strategically take out enemies to advance until I am right on top of the enemy, then I could just pick them off one by one. I could sometimes get 15+ kills before I died, leaving the way for the rest of my team to push up on the front line.

It has a hard learing curve, when you first play, you'll get annoyed at how easily you get taken down, it takes time before you realise to survive, you need to be smart, use cover, use smoke grenades, use distractions, sprint when needed and use teamwork. Running into battle like you would on FF, will just get you massacred on Insurgency, by a sniper or machine gun.

You play it like you would in real life, you have an objective, you should always assume if there is a long road you want to cross, there is probably a sniper somewhere, deal with it like you believe you would in real life, use supressive fire, make them take cover then move.

Overall, an awesome game, they have a very cinematic trailer you can see on youtube which really demonstrates everything I have said. I would recommend giving it a go if you like a challenge, and once you get used to it, you can really shine.

Oh, and there is no crosshairs, you need to use your Iron Sights , it's realistic.

Have faith.

You must have a pretty low opinion of Fortress Forever if you are threatened by other mods.

That reply, linked with one from another thread of mine in which he said it was a "dick move", to advertise other mods because of the size of the FF community, suggests it wasn't a joke.

It may have been a joke... although not a very good one.

Like I said in the other thread, this is the "Other Games" section...so there is nothing wrong with telling us about other games. At no point did I see him say that we should stop playing FF and play something else.

To everyone: A real "dick move" is knocking on new members to the community, and driving them away.

So between looking at that thread and this one, I saw Freak's other posts, and realized he wasn't trying to promote one game at our expense. So yes, my post in this thread was a joke.

I wouldn't condone promoting FF on other games' forums, which is an idea I've heard proposed before. It's bad etiquette that's comparable to spam. But talking about other games in this forums, of course, allowed.

And no, I don't have a high opinion of FF at this time. It's very dated and can't compete well among the large number of professional-quality games available today.

Hey, I talk up FF on the other gaming forums I'm on. FF may have faults, but we can still find people who may like it, or even better; become involved in making it better.

It was never my intention to give people the idea I am trying to steal FF players.

I just wanted to share some of the other promising mods out there. Fortress Forever is the mod I have played the most of all, for years. And many regulars on FF will know me as FreaK in game. Often on the OT server these days, well, every day infact.

The main gamemode played is AvD, so obviously defenders will be camping, it's your job to use teamwork to flank their position or get a sharpshooter to clear the way. It's slower paced than a lot of games due to the realism, running into a firefight will often get you killed, you need to use cover, smoke grenades and your common sense.

It's not everyone's cup of tea though, it's pretty challenging and takes some time to learn how to become an efficient soldier.

Also, it uses the same engine as FF I believe, its graphics are fairly decent and it's minimum requirements are all higher than FF's.

Yeah, but Source is showing its age. 2004 was a damned good year for games though!

Yeah, I remember back when everyone thought HL2 graphics were breathtaking and realistic, thinking they wouldn't get much better than that. Yet now you can look back and think "damn, this shit has nothing on Crysis or Crysis 2 or Assassins Creed or Assassins Creed 2 or Assassins Creed Brotherhood or Bad Company 2 or Section 8 or Medal of Honor or Brink or RIFT or Metal Gear Solid 4 or COD 4 or COD 5 or COD 6 or Gears of War or Gears of War 2 or Halo 3 or Halo Reach or Oblivion or many other games".

I didn't think it looked realistic, but it was near seamless. I enjoy the freedom of imagination available when playing a game that looks great, but isn't exactly realistic. AC2 looks muthafuckin real, so much so that I went looking up photos of the places and it is pretty damned accurate.

if you like realism games, look into RO ostfront41-45 its a realism based shooter meaning no bunnyhopping but some people here might like it. kinda like insurgency but ww2 and easternfront. and better XD

there coming out with Heroes of Stalingrad (the sequel.) soon but now the game only 10 bucks and has a mod called darkest hour.

also the insurgency mod is dead.
