I’m a retro gamer in every sense of the word, but I still get a kick from FPS and TPS games, and these days there are plenty to choose from. I’ve looked through my library of shooters to find the best of the best. These are all free online multiplayer shooters for PC that are fun and action-packed. If you haven’t tried them yet, you’re missing out.
10. Offensive Combat
I’ve never been into browser games before, but I was presently surprised by Offensive Combat. The stages are varied, and the gameplay is fluid and fun. Having the option to teabag fallen opponents is a fun gimmick, though after being shot numerous times in the middle of my cowboy dance, I’ve gone back to just playing it as a regular shooter.
9. Battlefield Heroes
If you’re looking for a third person shooter that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Battlefield Heroes might be for you. You’ve got a cartoon-like character in a cartoon-like setting with guns that appear to be shooting rubber bullets. It’s great for gamers like me who normally get shot as soon they spawn. At least you’ll have a chance in this game.

8. Gotham City Imposters
Gotham City Imposters is a pretty fun FPS to play. You’ll play as wannabe heroes and villains from the streets of Gotham. There are some zany weapons to play with and cool gadgets to help you out of tough spots.
For some reason, it’s only free-to-play on PC – PS3 players will need to pay for it.
If you’re looking for something a little different, Warframe is the game for you. You play as an alien race known as the Tenno and use a combination of guns and blades to slice your way through CPU enemies from stage to stage. You can take on missions solo or get some friends to help you out in multiplayer.
6. Battlefield Play4Free
Unlike Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free takes everything a lot more serious. If you loved Battlefield 2, you’ll love this game too. Battles can have up to 32 players at a time, and with 16 usable vehicles, this is a ton of fun.
