Fantastic game, great job guys. Game needs more modes and a mini map feature.

hi im a youtuber plz reply

What is your youtube, if you're good I'll subscribe.

The game is super fun i love playing with friends so we made a discord called skillwarz soo could you consider making it the official skillwarz discord server? linkhttps://discord.gg/VrEcW7

This is a very great game especially when it's free i will take the liberty of telling all my friends about this game ;-)

How many players on this game?

Hi, two questions: is there LAN and are there bots (AI)? And if not, can you please add it in a future update. The ability to play offline would be amazing. Thanks.

Hi, current networking solution doesn't support LAN.
No, we don't have bots.

Instead of editing comment you could simply reply my answer.
It's not possible. As i wrote "current networking solution doesn't support LAN".

The game is perfect but it need more and ongoing updates to be more complete

Do you plan on selling the script?

Really great game btw!!

Thanks.  No, but if someone will make good offer, then...

Amazing game man! Just love it! Only problem for me is: The updation method should be better than having to re-download the entire game again even if it is small.


Auto updater = i have to pay for traffic = game is no longer free.

Oh I see! Then it is cool. I would prefer that it stays free. Also, are you planning to add a mini-map system? I would love something like the COD mini-maps where the green pulse sets off and the players last known positions are shown for some time.

I have texture bug everything went purple

You can report bugs here:
Take screenshots and provide more info:
* your PC specs (gpu, cpu)
* on which maps? restart helps?


i have a potato pc i5 2400k-nvidia gt420 and 8gb ddr4 i will send a screenshoot

Hi, So I downloaded the mac version of the game which is a .zip file and when I extracted it only gave me a file with the contents of the game but not the game itself. I don't know what I did wrong. Any help would be great thank you. ( pardon my bad grammar)

(Edited 2 times)

Hi, and what happens when you add ".app" after "skillwarz_25_Mac"? By mistake i renamed folder on windows. 

Or simply download game again.

(Edited 4 times)

Ill try that later and when I reinstall it does the same thing. thank you so much for ur help

(Edited 1 time)

appeared an update of the game in itch.io / app, are the fixes or is there something new?

Bug fixes and 7 new TDM maps.

This game is like butter. Game modes are lacking atm, but if you want visual butter play this game.

Game is in development.

As long as you keep spitting butter i'm good with it.

I REALLY love this game but I have a question. I uninstalled this game accidentally though the resources were still present in my computer. Now I can't seem to reinstall it. An error message always pops up saying that the archive is in unknown format or damaged and when I extract it, it shows archive not found. Any help?? 

What program you use to extract game from archive?
What you can try:
1) upgrade archiver program to latest version
2) download game again
3) search in internet "how to repair damaged archive".

Or download and install https://itch.io/app

(Edited 1 time)

I used winRAR and I have now tried to install the game from itch for about the 20th time

I can't figure out what to do.

There is no installation. You simply extract game files from archive.

Download and install https://itch.io/app

another way to install the game: download the itch.io application, similar to steam, enter with your itch.io account, search for skillwarz in the search, now just put to download and play, app link,https://itch.io/app

I LOVE this game. It's like COD but for weaker PCs. The only problem is, as people said below, the playerbase is very small. But hopefully we can fix that. I definitely think this game has potential to become a big thing.

Another thing i've noticed is that the rank icons stay the same when leveling up. Is this a bug or is it a feature? If it's the former, please fix it in the following updates. I would love to see a complex ranking system. Oh, and guns too. More guns would be awesome.

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

Because i don't have 100 rank icons. It will take few days to make them, but i don't think that it's important at the moment. If someone has experience in graphics design and is willing to help, then contact me.

Just a little tip, you can take inspiration from a game called Warface. It's got that style of ranks and you could just work off it. It won't be blatantly ripping off the game as long as you change it into something different. Again, just my 2 cents.

We've all got the Skillz to pay the bills... ;D

Very fun, indeed. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU NEED DEM SKILLZ TO PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

missing players on US servers, hopefully we can change that :D
(Edited 1 time)

Made a video about this game. Really like it, the only thing it's missing is players :D

oh, and asian server

In future will be added more regions. At this moment not so many players.

Ah, I see. I'll be eagerly waiting for that day then :)

Hi I really love what you have done with this game great maps great gunplay ect. I wanted to know how to make a map and submit it and if you are still working on this game and if you will add character customisation. And are you thinking about adding more weapons and game modes. Thank you.

Hi, you can download one of map editors:

create maps and submit in forum.

- Character customization is not planned.
- Time by time i am adding new weapons.
- New game modes will be added in closest updates.

master, If I create a map, how will it be accepted?

Create topic in forum and show us screenshots (or better video).
From comments you will understand if map will be interesting.

Hi I could not figure out how to open the map editor can you please post a video on your youtube channel. Thank you

The same way as you launch game. Extract from archive and play.
If you download old Map Editor, then watch this video:

cool game!

First words, I really appreciate what you did. This game looks cool and not like any other fps game. But not every game  is perfect. This game got many maps, but i don't like them at all, look like some basic futuristic or portal ripoff map. I would like it to look more realistic, like arena 1,2,3,...  You can add houses, cars,.. etc. And second, can you please make some new mode for the game? I love defuse mode (c4) in every fps game and I'll be pleased if you do the same with this game. Thanks for reading and sorry if my english is bad :D 

seek and destroy, would be epic.

I played a mod with the name of Search & Rescue, in CoD ghosts, it was very good too.

yeah we need all that stuffs too, shooting people for score is barely boring

(Edited 1 time)

"basic futuristic or portal ripoff map" only because i use prototype textures?
It all takes time and money. We have many players who play on lowest settings with below 40 fps.
Textured maps = more details = heavier for performance.

Textured maps doesn't affect gameplay = it's not important at the moment.

I think the maps available are cool and it matches the game, I think that more game modes would be welcome for the future growth of the game, many detailed maps will require stronger computers, many people will not be able to play, I think you you are in the right way.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge. Welp, I guess I can't expect anything from you. However, I still hope the game would get better, cheers.

Underrated game. Needs more players 

exactly what i thought

another way to install the game: download the itch.io application, similar to steam, enter with your itch.io account, search for skillwarz in the search, now just put to download and play, app link,https://itch.io/app

i downloaded the game and was pretty excited to play, turns out all that excitement lead to nothing as i needed a certain kind of file i cant even find through google, if theres a way to play this without downloading any external files then please do it and let me know, i still really want to play this game

As stated in "Install instructions", you must extract game from archive.
To extract game from archive use one of following programs:
*) WinRar,

*) WinZip,

 *) 7Zip (completely free)   https://www.7-zip.org/download.html

ok thanks

You can also download the Itch.io client and get it from there, as I did.

Hi, nice to meet you. One of my friend i vite me to play this game and this is so cool. i'm asking you if you gonna continue to develop this game more and sell it on steam? I'm glad if you answer my question. Can tester give you some inspire for this game? That will make a game better more. THANK YOU

So I downloaded this game today because it looks like a great and fun game but when I registered I got two codes in my junk email and none of them worked. Please help!

Hmm... you even left two identical comments.
Do not register multiple times with the same email and don't close game while you are registering.
And of course, make sure that you entered code without mistakes.

Important: Do as I did and, after clicking the "register" button, wait a few seconds. If you click it twice, you will get a glitch.


What a pleasure to play, this game is very good.

Bro please, add .deb for Ubuntu 18.04 I upgraded from windows to it.

:/ i'm really good at this game ;) my name is LastSuggestion you may know me.


Hi, send me private message in forum.

ok i will do it right now :)

when we create a room, are we using our own connection or do we have dedicated servers for each region? If it is dedicated can I help with a donation?

Dedicated servers. Communication between clients is only via server (even when you host game).

To make a donation, please join skillwarz community.

Thanks, I'm now part of the forum, but I still do not know how to donate.

In top right corner you should see heart icon.


OMG i played this like 2 years ago xD I played it with my friends all day on browser hehe :D

plz make this available for mac again! it was so amazing before.


The game looks nice, may I ask what game engine have you been using ?

Unity 2018

This is pretty good game graphics, performance and gun play. Need more maps and suggest playing something on the map edges like buildings or mountains to make it look more professional. Bots would be a nice touch too when nobody is playing.

Tell your friends about this game and play with them. It will be much more interesting, than shooting dumb bots.
If you want more maps, then you can help make them (we have two map editors).

ai galera esse e meu canal e focado nesse jogo

activation code is not working plz help

Don't close the game while you are registering and don't register multiple times with the same email.


Hi, I have a problem whenever I download the file, it comes corrupted if they can help me, I thank ah I have windows 7

Hi, possible you have bad internet connection... Try to download again, or search in google "how to repair corrupted or damaged rar files" and you will find many tutorials.

Just need Offline mode or Campaing I guess. Or maybe Zombies.

I love the details of the game.
