Urban Terror is a free multiplayer first person shooter. Urban Terror uses the free, stand-alone, ioquake3 engine modified, which doesn’t require Quake III Arena, in addition to being an add-on to id Software’s Quake III Arena.
Urban Terror is focused on blending realism with the fast-paced action of shooters such as Quake III Arena and Unreal Tournament. The realism in the mod is introduced through a number of changes.
The weapons available are real-life, have recoil, are less accurate when fired while moving, and require reloading after a magazine has been expended. The number of weapons and other gear that can be carried is limited.
Damage is also realistic, based on dividing the player target into discrete areas. In addition to the damage system, wounds require bandaging, and wounds sustained in the legs or feet slow the player down considerably until they are bandaged. A stamina system is also present, and is depleted by activities such as sprinting or jumping; crouching down allows the stamina bar to recover faster.
Depending on the map being played, external environments are more realistic too and can include weather effects such as rain or snow.
