Firearms: Source Release Party

Firearms has returned with its first new release after five years! To celebrate this awesome achievement, a Firearms: Source LAN party is being held to play the hell out of it. We will be taking advantage of the awesome bandwidth at rollernet and playing online (you really need at least 8 vs. 8 teams to play LAN only), so everyone needs their own Steam account due to modern day copy protection.

Insults and profanity will be used freely. This is a rated R gaming environment. Bring snacks, drinks, chips, and some cash to chip in for food. A mini fridge is available and we will have bottled water on site. Plan on playing long into the night.

If you can’t make it we’ll most likely be playing online as a group, so join us online. We have set up two public servers just in case: Roller Network Firearms #1 and Roller Network Firearms #2. Friendly Fire may be on or off and will be noted, but we generally prefer to play FF ON.

What you will need to play:

  1. See our Firearms: Source page for more info.

Install all of these and you should be good to go. We have plenty of bandwidth to download things the day of. Steam is available for Windows and MacOS, but the Firearms mod is Windows only.

What to bring to the LAN:

You must provide your own Computer, Headphones, Keyboard, Mouse and LCD Monitor. We have power and Ethernet cables; NO WIFI. (We have it, but we don’t use it for gaming.) Use corded mice and keyboards for best results.

A limited supply of keyboards and mice is available on site in case something breaks or is forgotten. Bring a mouse pad or wrist wrest if you can’t play without them (I can’t). We do have plenty of power cords, power strips and Ethernet cables. Leave those at home. Headphones are an absolute must with multiple people playing in the same room. Microphones are optional, but useful to talk to teammates online. LCD monitors are required due to power, weight, and heat limitations.

HAVE FUN and welcome to Firearms!
