There are few genres as famous and storied as the first-person shooter. From Wolfenstein 3D to Call of Duty, this genre has been around for decades but is constantly changing and evolving.

But now that we’re living in the age of Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch—not to mention next-gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X—that variety is even more apparent than ever.

There are probably more amazing shooters on Xbox One than any other console.

Multiplayer modes include Galactic Assault (20 vs. 20), Starfighter Assault (12 vs. 12), and Strike mode, where you can play with bots on smaller maps with objectives similar to Battlefield games but not nearly as complex or challenging unless you’re playing on hard difficulty settings for each map type which we recommend trying out if you enjoy such things!

10. Gears of War 4

Gears of War 4 is an action-adventure third-person shooter video game developed by The Coalition and published by Microsoft Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One. It is the fourth main installment in the Gears of War series and the first entry not to be developed by Epic Games.

On September 11th, 2016, a developer at The Coalition confirmed that Gears of War 4 would support 21:9 widescreen aspect ratio monitors enabling players to play in UltraWide resolution (3440×1440) upscaled from their native resolution; this means if your monitor supports 3440×1440, then it should display correctly without any borders being visible on screen, but if yours does not then you will get black bars along each side taking away from your gameplay experience.

11. Wolfenstein II The New Colossus

Wolfenstein II The New Colossus is a first-person shooter video game developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the sixth main installment in the Wolfenstein series and the sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter game that continues the story of Splatoon. It’s about splattering ink on the ground, using it to hide from enemies and to take out enemies. The best thing about this game is that it’s not just limited to one mode of play—you can play solo or multiplayer with up to eight players in local multiplayer matches or online competitions in ranked battles.

13. Warframe

If you’re looking for a fast-paced, action-packed FPS game that’s also not too expensive, Warframe is the one for you.
