hello so i have had a account for a month  and when i tried to go on skill warz it took 2 hours to launch and i still didnt

maybe at least try to explain where is problem? I can't read your mind, so i have no idea why you can't launch the game.

hola, quisiera saber como puedo jugar linux y que debo hacer

Hi, install itch.io app and then install game via app.


(1 edit)

Hello I wanted to install the game today but when the download is finished it is not installed.

and i want to install it on windows 11

Hi, you install via itch app? You sure, you have enough free space on hard drive?

Game wont even start im on a Linux right after i installed it clicked on start instant crash report from itch

If you need help then create topic here:


and provide some info about your system and tell us more about crash. Do you see any crash message?

can i play against bots ?

No, but in training mode you can kill bots (aim training).

how can people join staff




This game ( that i recently discovered) Has quickly became my favorite fps game ive ever played. The sliding, jumping, quickscopes, and everything just makes getting ever kill so satisfying. I will be here to watch it develop and i would LOVE to fund the game a bit to help production but only if promised if the game will have a full release.

I'm glad you liked the game.

Don't forget to rate the game, so more players can find it.


My new favourite game!!


Insanely good optimization and graphics for a Unity Game!

Movement and mechanics are on point, 10/10

Fast paced gameplay

Snipers and Rifles feel amazing and i love the killing animation

More than 300 concurrent players

Good level system

Awesome maps

Great attention to detail (i found no bugs so far)


Spawn points are predictable

Some spelling errors in the settings menu

Considering this game is still in development and by just one guy im going to rate it a 9.7/10 i really recommend it!

If you notice any spelling errors, then report in forum and i will fix them. I agree, spawn points require some improvements. Problems you see now are caused by low number of spawn points on quite small maps. Most of one team maps are made for 6-8 players, but rooms are usually with 10-12 players. Also when players block all spawns, then enemies can spawn near you.

How does the dev make money off this game or is it a hobby

I am not making any money cuz game is still in development. When game will be on Steam, then will be free and paid version of game.

will early players like us have an advantage? 


like getting a pre-release badge on the in-game name or some in game items

How do i get it to download fast

By pressing download button?

Or what you mean with "download fast"?

when i load it goes to my second monitor how do i fix and put it to my first monitor


When I load up the game, it says, "Couldn't Connect To Server." Is there any possible fix?

I'm playing this game on a 14 inch macbook pro, the game dosent seem to take advantage of the 120hz refresh rate display for some reason

what is your frame-rate in game? what happens when you enable vsync?

I get 250 - 200 fps without vsync and when it's on i get 60, which means it is running at 60hz

found an solution yet?

I am using Unity engine and vSync is engine thing.

it doesn't let me play when i download it

problem solved? If not, then just install itch.io app and then game via app.

crashes often for me but maybe thats just my doodoo pc

is it really crash, or game just closes? when exactly it happens?

yeah its full crash, 99% of the time it happens when im trying to start the game

why is it a .7z file i cant open it

maybe you don't have software to extract from archive?

you can install 7-zip, or install itch.io app and then install game via app.

oh nvm

how to play the game

i dowload already

read description, or comments and you will find answer on your question.

how to download the game on laptop ?


any fps boost tipps have a good pc but the game is fucking laggy 


your fps? what are your specs? 

I have 10 years old PC and i have 200+ fps on Ultra.

If game feels laggy, then lower quality, or resolution.

bro how are you getting low fps in this game?? It is so well optmized i run on 500 fps LOLL

Is it just you working on this game?

Yes, but community helps here and there.


Is it possible to add wallbangs in this game?


please up the tick rate please at least like 10 more and add killcams 

Networking solution i am using has limits and i am already reaching these limits. If you want higher tick-rate, then create room for less players. In room for just 2 players tick-rate will be 5 times higher than in room for 12 players.


fix spawns


what is wrong with spawns? and in which game-modes and maps?


every map and mode

you always spawn with people behind you


Not all modes. In modes where is one team and on DM type maps. Most of maps are made for 8 max players, but in rooms are up to 12 players. If you don't like such gameplay, then create room for 6 players.

how do i launch the game


I am having trouble downloading the game. When I go to download skillwarz_89_x64_Windows.7z i the file does download but I'm not sure how to launch it.

Please read description. There you can find Install instructions.

Please read description. There you can find Install instructions.

You can report in forum. There we have Bug reports 


Hey guys, love the game. Is there any chance of a South African server in the works?

(1 edit)

Hi, thanks. 

I have to test but seems that i can add South Africa (Johannesburg). Most likely in next update.

this would be nuts


i cant even downlowd the game

I am just a developer who uploads game here on itch.io

If you can't download, then contact itch.io support.

very fun game but pls make respawn times shorter or add option to make it short


Maybe create topic in forum (in Ideas and Suggestions), so other players can tell their thoughts about it. Also you can mention games where re-spawn time is faster (i assume you have played such games).


how can i play controller


get better and hop on keyboard and mouse


i cant even download this game or any other game

Contact itch.io support. Developers only upload games. If you can't download, then talk with support and they will help you.

i enter thr right code but game dont let me in

Just try to register again and don't close the game.

my username is every time fals i dont know why

itch/skillwarz forum account is not connected to the game. you have to create account in game.

usernames are case sensitive, so make sure you type it right.
