Ballistic Overkill is a fun and cheap FPS that I've put many hours into, it's now free to try for a few days and on sale with 50% off if you decide to keep it. The game has been out for a year now (minus a little time for the Linux build), so they're celebrating.

The developer just put out a fresh update today as well which adds in female skins for the Wraith and Tank classes. They say they're working to add more female skins in a future update too. On top of that, they've also added in 238 new weapon skins, allowed you to equip multiple accessories at the same time and previous seasons crates (their form of free loot boxes) are now permanent drops.

I'm hoping they have some bigger updates planned, as it's a very fun game but it sorely needs a few new maps.

Find Ballistic Overkill on Steam, you've got nothing to lose if you try it out.

I stopped playing when players were one-shotting me across the map...with a shotgun. I haven't played as many FPSes since, but I started dipping my toes in CS:GO.

I have this one and I played it recently. It's a pretty good one. Worth more than the $6 sale price.
Oh many I forgot about the ups and downs of this game, the long wait for players, the excitement when the screen changes, then the crashing disappointment when you realise its the you have been disconnected due to inactivity because it was taking so long to find a game.

Comandante ÑoñardoIs just multiplayer or I can play solo against the IA?

Just multiplayer. And one of the more annoying features is the fact that you can't choose which game mode to join. You get put into a random game.

That was one of the reasons I quit playing this game. I was hoping for a single player training mode so you could learn the classes outside of multiplayer.

Its a little bit confusing. But if you go to the "community servers" section, you can select the game mode you want and pick an official server from the list, similar to the TF2 legacy browser. It should really let you pick on the main menu though.
