Description Edit | History

Shooters have the player shoot opponents with a gun or other long-range weapon to proceed through missions. Some may have limited ammunition and thus requires the player to use it wisely. Play style may vary widely or little depending on the type of shooter being played, but all generally test the player's spatial awareness, reflexes, and speed.

Sub-genres
Video Game Theme: War - Future
Shooting Gallery Ceaseless enemy fire that occurs anywhere on the screen, with the player moving to avoid enemy attacks while returning fire. Example:
Video Game Genre: Endless Runner
Cabal shooter Ceaseless enemy fire that occurs anywhere on the screen, with the player controling an on-screen avatar that can run and often jump around the screen in addition to being able to aim their gun. Example:
Video Game Theme: Superhero
Hero Shooter Split among two or more teams who select from pre-designed "hero" characters that each possess unique attributes, skills, weapons, and other passive and active abilities; players may have the ability to customize the appearance of these characters, but these changes are usually cosmetic only and do not alter the game's balance or the behavior of the "hero". Hero shooters strongly encourage teamwork between players on a team, guiding players to select effective combinations of hero characters and coordinate the use of hero abilities during a match. Example:
Video Game Theme: Business / Construction
Looter Shooter The player's overarching goal is the accumulation of loot; weapons, equipment, armor, accessories and resources. To achieve this players complete tasks framed as quests, missions or campaigns and are rewarded with better weapons, gear and accessories as a result, with the qualities, attributes and perks of such gear generated randomly following certain rarity scales (also known as loot tables). Example:
Video Game Genre: Strategy
Tactical Shooter Simulates realistic combat, usually squad-based or man-to-man skirmishes, that make tactics and caution more important than quick reflexes in other games. A common feature of tactical shooters that is not present in many other shooters is the ability for the player character to lean out of cover, increasing the granularity of a player's movement and stance options to enhance the realism of the game. Example:
Video Game Genre: Stealth
Third-Person Shooter Characterized by a third-person camera view that fully displays the player character in his/her surroundings. Example:
