This is the role playing game type which sees players take on jobs just like in real life, you could be a medic or a cook for example if you choose so. You get paid by the minute for undertaking these jobs and the aim is to see what happens when players take on these basic personas. Typically some players will start breaking rules and get arrested by players who are cops, this game play sees some weird things happen but definitely requires imagination.
A new game mode that has since been spun off into other Valve games such as Team Fortress 2. The Garrys Mod Prop Hunt game mode is basically a simple cops and robbers, one team has the goal of hunting the other while the team being chased must avoid being found and killed for as long as possible.
Trouble In Terrorist Town
This game mode starts with everybody located in the same area and given 30 seconds to run, find ammo and prepare for the 30 seconds while being unable to attack. Once the initial period of cease fire is over players can then attack each other but if a player dies they will not spawn until the next round. The players are divided into 3 teams; Innocents, detectives and Traitors which each have different roles in the Garrys Mod game mode.
This game mode has 2 different roles, murder and bystander. A randomly chosen bystander will have a secret gun which they must use to kill the murderer, for this they will win but if they kill an innocent bystander they will be penalized.
Using the props available in Garrys Mod you must survive the flooded terrain by building floating rafts and staying alive for as long as possible. You start with a set amount of cash to buy new materials at the start but some servers will supplement your cash for staying alive longer.
This is the default game mode in Garrys Mod and its a basic free for all. All players can do whatever they want and is a great way to practice or experiment with new ideas, especially for new players trying to break into Garrys Mod.
This is a zombie survival game mode, the game can vary from server to server but essentially staying alive is the number 1 objective. When joining a server you can choose to be one of 4 human classes or 5 zombie classes to play as. A large weapon base makes this game mode ultra enjoyable and has loads of variations to keep Garrys Mod ReDead interesting.
