Free online multiplayer first-person shooter
Krunker is a free multiplayer game for Windows that you can play in your online browser. With so many battle royale-style games around, let's look at what makes Krunker stand out.
The first thing you'll notice when loading up the Krunker website is the game's look. It shares a blocky 3D aesthetic with Minecraft, although none of the environmental destruction and crafting.
It's also a little bland, with textures mainly consisting of plain colours and jagged edges. Plus, despite its simple graphics, Krunker can lag if you're in a match against over ten other players.
However, the last point can be tweaked to some degree thanks to the extensive settings options. The same goes for practically every aspect of the game.
Scale the UI in the browser, toggle damage, score, health and other displays. Rebind keys and controls to your liking, and much more. For a free browser game, there's a lot of leeway to make the game look and run the way you want.
Krunker doesn't just run in a Windows internet browser for free; most of the content is also free. Registering is as simple as choosing a valid username and password - you don't even need to use an email address. You can drop into a game without even logging in, if you want, although you'll be listed as ‘Guest' and certain character options will be off-limits.
In-game items can be bought for real-world cash via the attached store. e.g. character costumes, and super-rare weapon skins like Frostbite.
Generous customisation options
Krunker launched as a browser game for Windows in January 2019, but has recently made a mobile version available. Whichever you pick, you'll find the same mix of character and game options. As well as choosing between different weapon loadouts, if you host a game you can also choose the map, which character/weapons are allowed, and the number of players. For a multiplayer game, it's not as polished as Fortnite but scratches a similar itch - for free!
