Incredible team-based action mod for Half-Life!
It's been much longer than any of us would have cared for, but we've finally finished. All the team has done a great job on this release, and I hope everyone is as proud of it as I am. An enormous number of bugs and exploits have once again been fixed. All the additions and changes to the gameplay, specifically the weapon behaviour, have come together to make this fresh and fun. The ever present balance issues have been addressed, and I can say with some certainty that this is the most balanced release of Firearms ever. Together with the new and updated maps, and several new models, skins, and animations, this should be an extremely enjoyable version for everybody.
We strongly recommend playing Firearms 2.8 through Valve's Steam application. If you have yet to get Firearms working within Steam, you should download the full version of 2.8, regardless of any other versions of Firearms you have installed separately. It will make sure you avoid any potential problems with missing files. It is possible to play Firearms 2.8 using the independent Half-Life launcher as well, and will be until the old authorisation servers are taken down. However, you will need to download this file and unzip it to your Half-Life folder. It contains the files used for the Firearms menus, as well as updated rendering .dlls from Day of Defeat 1.0, to enable masked textures on models.
