The best FPS games

Get ready to pull off all the headshots as guns will solve all your problems in the following shooty gems. These games will satisfy your itchy trigger finger no matter what sort of virtual gunplay you’re after.

Doom

If you think unleashing a hail of bullets into walking corpses and furious monsters is a gory treat, then this Doom reboot is just for you.

This excellent reinvention keeps the brilliant, bloody heart of the 1993 original alive by rewarding aggression.

Titanfall 2

There’s nothing quite like Titanfall 2’s winning combination of sharp shooter gameplay and crunchy, industrial mech brawling.

The raw mechanics serve up all the thrills: wall-running at a group of enemies and blasting them away with your shotgun feels exhilarating every time.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Nazi-bashing at its finest. Wolfenstein 2 is a masterclass in how to tell an engaging story that matches the copious shooty slaughter.

Blowing out the brains of Nazis offers constant punchy thrills. A breathless, high-octane thrill ride from start to finish.

Call of Duty: WWII

Moving away from monsters and mayhem, Call of Duty: WWII delivers the intensity of a shooter while telling the heartfelt story of soldiers in war.

It successfully transports the fast and and near instantaneous kills of typical COD to the scale and spectacle of WWII.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

If you’re relatively new to FPS games, then playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is like diving into a modern warfare meat grinder.

You’ll be killed by veterans of the game hundreds of times, but working your way up the leaderboard is an achievement; a reward earned through patience, skill, and muscle memory.

Rainbow Six Siege

Not for the faint-hearted, Rainbow Six Siege is a psychological battle as much as it’s a series of gunfights.

Destructible environments make no wall safe and its asymmetrical multiplayer and tactical openness mean no round plays out the same way. A game about control and manipulation as well as tactics and good aim.

Left 4 Dead 2

Battle zombies like you never have before. The zombies in Left 4 Dead 2 don’t mope around but crash over you like waves, crawling up walls and leaping across gaps.

Some drag you into alleys with their long tongues, others will pin you to the ground and rip out your throat - a bloody and tense challenge if you’re confident with a gun.

Team Fortress 2

If you want a break from Nazis, zombies, and zombie Nazis then playing as angry cartoon men capturing briefcases, escorting bombs, and standing on nodes is what you need.

Team Fortress 2 is a light-hearted classic shooter — a simple and fun game you can jump right into.
