Xonotic overview

Xonotic is an addictive, arena-style first person shooter with crisp movement and a wide array of weapons. It combines intuitive mechanics with in-your-face action to elevate your heart rate. Xonotic is and will always be free-to-play. It is available under the copyleft-style GPLv3+ license.

Distinctive Weapons

Xonotic has 9 core weapons and 16 full weapons in its armory. Each has a primary fire and a UT-like secondary fire. They are each useful in particular situations, so weapon choice is critical. Frag away!

Game Modes Galore!

Through the support of our diverse community Xonotic has a huge variety of game modes for you to play. There are the normal game modes you'd expect from an arena shooter like Deathmatch (FFA), Capture The Flag, and Clan Arena, plus more whacky modes like Nexball and Freeze Tag. Multiplayer Race is also supported!

New and Classic Maps

Xonotic ships ready to play with 25 official maps, with dozens of community-made ones just a click away. Classic Nexuiz maps are also supported, including those converted from Quake 3! Those interested in making maps of their own can use our map editor, which also ships with the game.

Integrated Player Statistics

Track your progress with XonStat, the integrated player statistics application. See vital stats like your kill : death ratio, weapon damage and accuracy, and recent games. Tracking is completely opt-in, and no login is required!

Customizable Heads-Up Display

Tailor the information on your screen to what you’re used to with our easy to use HUD editor. Stick with the defaults, add all the whiz-bang widgets, or go minimalist - it is completely up to you!

Casual and Competitive

Xonotic is easy to learn but hard to master! We strive to provide thrilling action for the casual player but also e-sport opportunities for those interested in friendly competition. Features such as simple items, fully customizable configs and servers, a functioning anti-cheat system, spectator mode, and the opportunity to watch and record games make Xonotic appealing to competitive players.

What’s new in version 1.0

Updated on Dec 30 2020

Version 1.0:
Here are some feature highlights for this release:
  • TimePath has been working tirelessly on the codebase to improve its quality. His efforts have removed many longstanding issues originating as far back as the original Quake! All that refactoring has made Xonotic much more developer friendly, which we hope will encourage more contributions. The organizational changes he’s made also structure the code such that a move to an alternative engine, daemon, is possible in the future.
  • Developer terencehill has added a "quick menu" system to the in-game HUD layer. This system allows you to expand your configuration options without having to occupy additional keybindings. Access it by hitting the F8 key (by default), which will bring up a menu overlay on your screen where you can then use the arrow keys to navigate and make selections. terencehill has also helpfully included an example configuration file for customizing the options in your quick menu.
