Warsow is a free standalone first person shooter game based on the Qfusion 3D
engine (a modification of the Quake 2 GPL engine), and aimed on the competitive
scene, or the e-sports community.
The base gameplay is focussed around the art of movement; speed and tricks play
a big part in the gameplay. Besides this, mapcontrol, aim, teamplay and
fragging skills play their role too.
Another twist in gameplay is Warsow's weapon system. Warsow has two firing
modes for each weapon; by picking up a weapon, you will be equipped with the
standard (weak) ammo for the weapon, but when you pick up an ammo pack, you
will equip your weapon with special (strong) ammo. Weapons may have different
damage or slightly different behaviour depending on what ammo you use.
To keep the focus on competitive gaming, visibility is important in Warsow.
Celshaded, cartoon-like styles on the maps, textures, and models combine for
good visibility, suitable for competitive gameplay.
