The 10 Best FPS games for Mac

Sometimes you just want to shoot something. Or lots of somethings. Fortunately, First Person Shooters (FPS) allow us to do that from the comfort of our homes. One of the most venerable categories of computer games, shooters have seen their ups and downs but they’re clearly not going anywhere.

And while MacOS may not have all the latest and greatest shooters, we’ve always had a fine selection to choose from. We last did a rundown of the top Mac FPS games in 2015, so it’s definitely time to take another look.

If you’ve got an itchy trigger finger, we have something here for you whether you’re looking for a graphics-intensive, realistic shooter for your iMac Pro or a casual shoot-’em-up for your older Macbook.

And we’ll throw in a couple of curveballs (sorry, it’s Spring Training) that stretch the genre and maybe your idea of what a shooter can be.

Looking for something less shooty? We also have a list of the 100 Best Mac games in all the best categories.

Last updated: March 17, 2018

We have tested over 10+ new games released since this guide was first created in April 2015 and decided to change five games from the previous top 10 and crown a new all-around champion.

How We Decide

We purchase most of the games we review with our own funds and we only use review copies for the games we identified as some of the greatest. We then test MacOS performance levels and define our top 10.

All games were tested on these 3 machines:

Our favorite Mac FPS games

Borderlands 2

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll note that we previously had Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as our pick from this series. So what gives? Over time it’s become clear that Borderlands 2 is the king of this series, with perhaps the perfect blend of shooting and looting. A look at the Steam numbers bears this out with Borderlands 2 having over 12,000 concurrent players in a month while the Pre-Sequel only gets around 1,100 players.

The Borderlands series is known for its winning formula of mixing FPS gameplay with RPG mechanics, and Borderlands 2 just got it all right. Here, you will kill and loot, and gain experience points and skills. Enough features to keep you busy in the enormous world that is entirely at your disposal.

The game is also beautiful, with a graphic novel style look that matches the game’s attitude and humor perfectly. The game supports up to 4-players co-op and needless to say, the experience is much more fun with friends. Plus, Aspyr did a terrific job with the game's Mac port.

We tested the game using Medium Texture and Game Detail, 2X Anisotropic Filtering, Medium View Distance, FXAA On, Bullet Decals, Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field Off and 1280x800 resolution:

Borderlands_2_results

As you can see from these results, even my 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2013 handled the game just fine. Notice the game sometimes crashes on the start menu. To avoid that problem, just launch a game as soon as you enter the open menu.

✅ Low Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.8.5, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4 GB RAM, 256 MB ATI Radeon HD 2600 / NVidia Geforce 8800/ Intel HD 3000 or better, 13 GB hard drive space.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The latest entry in this venerable franchise replaces the previous installment, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which easily earned a place on the list thanks to its innovative approach that allows you to play the way you want. You like stealth, play stealthy, you like frontal assaults, you can do that too. In Deus Ex, you can use the RPG-like system of augmentations to gradually evolve your character to suit your playing style.

While Feral Interactive had to delay it while waiting for Metal 2, once it arrived it easily took its place as one of the best and most innovative shooters on the platform. With a deep story continuing from the last (and previous) installments, beautiful graphics and replayability thanks to the augmentation system, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was worth the wait.

In fact, the main thing holding it back from first place is the hefty system requirements; all that beauty comes at a cost and our results from our test machines make it clear you’ll need a fairly recent machine for a satisfying gaming experience.

We tested the game using the Medium Preset, 2X Anisotropic Filtering, V-Sync Off, Volume Lighting and Depth of Field On and 1280x800 resolution:

Deus Ex Mankind Divided Mac results

As you can see from these results, this is one tough game to run. It looks great but you'll need a high-end machine to enjoy it.

⛔ High Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.13.1, 3 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor, 8 GB RAM, 2GBAMD R9 M290 or better, 67 GB hard drive space.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Valve has more than its share of games on this list, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is probably the best. I’ll forgive you if you don’t recognize the title, as you mostly see it as CS: GO because people don’t want to waste time typing it, they just want to get into the action.

CS: GO is an online tactical first-person shooter and features classic content from the original Counter-Strike, such as revamped versions of classic maps, as well as brand new maps, characters, and game modes.

The game offers the most competitive online Multiplayer out there, including professionals playing on the eSports circuit. CS:GO features cross-platform Multiplayer between Windows and macOS, and if you’re worried that after six years players might have moved on to something newer, fear not. CS: GO is the second most played title on Steam after Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (I know, I know).

Be warned though, CS:GO's Multiplayer is ruthless, filled with players with thousands of hours, and requires much practice to master. On the other hand, it runs great even on our 2013 MBP test machine.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using the Medium Options everywhere, 2x MSAA, 2X Anisotropic Filtering, V-Sync and Motion Blur Off, and 1280x800 resolution:

CS GO Mac results

As you can see from these results, my 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2013 did just fine, squeezing a comfortable 37 FPS.

✅ Low Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.6.6, 2 GHz Intel Core Duo Processor, 2 GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 2400 or better / NVidia 8600M or better, 15 GB hard drive space.

Fortnite

Battle Royale games are all the vogue now, and Fortnite from Epic Games is one of the most popular. While technically a third person rather than a first-person shooter, it is nonetheless one of THE hot shooter games right now, so we thought it deserved to be on our list. That’s right, we’ll bend the rules if a game’s good enough.

Free-to-play, Fortnite: Battle Royale puts you in the middle of 100 player PvP battles on a large map where in addition to killing or being killed you gather resources to build shelters and collect weapons and ammo to, again, kill everyone else.

Featuring solo and team modes, Fortnite presses all the traditional shooter buttons. If you’re looking for something where you can try to be the last man or woman standing, Fortnite: Battle Royale is the game for you.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using Medium settings everywhere, 100% 3D Resolution, V-Sync Off and 1280x800 resolution:

Fortnite Mac results

As you can see from these results, Fortnite is quite demanding. Even my 2016 MacBook Pro couldn't manage 30 FPS (the minimum required for a fast-paced online shooter).

⛔ High Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.12.6 and a machine that supports Metal, 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3 Processor, 4 GB RAM, Intel HD 4000 or better.

Also great Mac first-person shooters

BioShock Infinite

An obvious choice for a holdover from our previous list, BioShock Infinite, like the others in the series, is a hell of an experience.

Also ported by Aspyr, BioShock Infinite is a single-player game, driven by an amazing story. The story takes place in an unforgettable universe (the flying city of Columbia) that could only be matched by the original BioShock's city of Rapture. I won't spoil the story for you, but I can tell you the ending alone is one of the finest I've ever seen.

While the story alone could put BioShock Infinite in any Top 10 list out there, the game's gameplay and graphics are almost as good as the story. The shooting mechanics are solid and the graphics are nothing short of impressive. At some points, I had to stop and just absorb the breathtaking vistas Columbia had to offer.

And while it was a graphically intensive game when it was first released, now that it’s a few years old, it’s playable on a wide variety of machines, hitting decent performance on our 2013 MBP.

We tested the game using the Medium Preset and 1280x800 resolution:

BioShock Infinite Mac results

As you can see from these results, BioShock Infinite is somewhat demanding, but if you're willing to play at the lowest settings, you should be fine even on older MBP models.

⚠️️ Medium Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.8, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4 GB RAM, 512 MB ATI Radeon HD 3870 / NVidia Geforce 640M / Intel HD4000 graphics card or better, 30 GB hard drive space.

Superhot

By now you may be wondering if there are other NEW shooters for Mac. Yes, there are, and Superhot is almost certainly the best and most innovative. In addition to not looking like any other FPS games for Mac on the list, Superhot doesn’t play like the others either.

In Superhot, you face waves of enemies with no health regeneration or ammo drops, but time only moves when you do, allowing you to plan your strategy for staying alive. Think bullet-time from The Matrix with minimalist but still stylish graphics and you’ll have some idea of what you’ll face.

Praised for its innovative look and gameplay, Superhot’s minimalist graphics also mean it can play on a wide variety of Macs, with great performance even on our 2013 MBP.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using the Low-End Graphics Preset and 1280x800 resolution:

Superhot Mac results

As you can see from these results, Superhot is not demanding and can run fine even on a 5-year old MBP. Notice frames per second are capped at 60 FPS (which explains the top 2 results).

✅ Low Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.8, 2.4 GHz Intel Processor, 8 GB RAM, 1 GB graphics card or better, 5 GB hard drive space.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

People love to hate Call of Duty, but there's a reason the series keeps chugging along. Call of Duties are as mainstream as it gets, but they do offer great graphics, over-the-top stories, and competitive Multiplayer.

A holdover from our previous list, Modern Warfare 3 is the latest game in the series available on Mac, so that means that it's the best looking and most feature-packed of the bunch. It also helps that Modern Warfare 3, unlike Black Ops, offers cross-platform multiplayer between Windows and MacOS gamers on Steam.

Modern Warfare 3 is truly a complete package. It offers a big-budget story, a co-op mode and the fast-paced multiplayer most people buy the game for. And while numbers are obviously down from its heyday, there’s still a large enough player community out there to help you get your multiplayer CoD game on. And it ran amazing on all of our test machines.

We tested the game using the Normal settings everywhere, all effects turned Off, and the 1280x800 resolution:

COD Modern Warfare 3 Mac results

Surprisingly, Modern Warfare was much more forgiving than expected. Even our 2013 MacBook Pro did great with a comfortable 50 FPS.

✅ Low Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.9.5, 2.2 GHz Intel Core i3 Processor, 4 GB RAM, 512 MB Radeon HD 4850 / NVidia Geforce 640M / Intel Iris graphics card or better, 13 GB hard drive space.

Shadow Warrior

A remake of the classic game of swordplay and shooting, in Shadow Warrior you play as corporate shogun Lo Wang on the search for a legendary katana (sword) and his betrayers. A reimagining more than just a straight remake, Shadow Warrior is known for both its violence and its humor.

In addition to a full complement of guns, Shadow Warrior also has you fighting with your shogun’s sword, using deft strokes and fancy combinations to defeat hordes of enemies, human and demons, without firing a shot. You also have magical abilities when physical weapons just won’t cut it (see what I did there?).

Your guns are upgradable, the story deeper than you might expect, and the humor is essential to the game and your character. Add in somewhat modest system requirements, and Shadow Warrior is not just a worthy remake of a classic, it’s more than deserving of a place on this list.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using the Medium Overall Graphics Preset, Anti-Aliasing turned off, V-Sync turned off and 1280x800 resolution:

Shadow Warrior Mac results

As you can see from these results, Shadow Warrior is one of the most demanding games on this list, but it can still be manageable if you are willing to play it on lower settings.

⚠️️ Medium Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.9, 2.4 GHz Intel Core Dual Processor, 2 GB RAM, GeForce 9600/130/Quadro FX 5600, Radeon HD 5870, or Intel HD 4000 with 512 MB of dedicated memory, 15 GB hard drive space.

Team Fortress 2

You cannot list the top shooters and not mention Team Fortress 2. That would just be wrong. The fact that it's free certainly helps, but it could cost $50 and I would still buy it.

Another Valve creation, TF2 is a team-based shooter. The game gives you the choice among nine character classes. After choosing a character, you join one of two teams and battle in a variety of game modes including capture the flag and king of the hill. The graphics style is cartoonish and the gameplay squad-oriented. You will need a solid, balanced team to succeed.

Overall, people love it for its art direction, gameplay, humor, and strong community. How strong is the community? At 11 years old Team Fortress 2 is still the 11th most played game on Steam. That’s strong.

We tested the game using the Medium settings everywhere, High Shader Detail, Simple Reflection, Enabled Color Correction, 2x MSAA, Anisotropic 2X, V-Sync Off and the 1280x800 resolution:

Team Fortress 2 Mac results

As you can see from these results, this is a lightweight game (which isn't surprising given the game's age) that can run even on older low-end models.

✅ Low Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.5.8, 1.7 GHz Processor, 1 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8 or higher, ATI X1600 or higher, Intel HD 3000 or higher, 15 GB hard drive space.

Metro 2033 Redux

The Metro series was infamous for its beautiful graphics and punishing performance. In fact, Metro: Last Light, which made our last list, was so demanding it was often used to benchmark gaming machines. Enhanced several years ago with improved graphics and enhanced gameplay, Metro 2033 Redux looks as good as it plays.

Developed by Ukrainian developer 4A Games, Metro 2033 Redux is a single player shooter that puts you in the middle of a post-apocalyptic Moscow. As the name of the game suggests, most of the story takes place inside the metro system, with occasional missions above ground. 2033's universe is scary, desolate and immersive. And the game's stealth mechanics are the perfect feature to go along with it.

If you want to take a break from the fast-paced Multiplayer shooters that dominate the market, Metro 2033 is just what you need. And again, the game performed great on all three of our test machines.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using the Medium Quality Settings, SSAA set to 0.5X, Anisotropic Filtering 4X, Normal Motion Blur, V-Sync Off and the 1280x800 resolution:

Metro 2033 Redux Mac results

Be very careful with these settings. Resolution can't be changed and is blocked at 2560x1600. The only way to alter that is to change SSAA to 0.5X (to divide the resolution by 2) or 0.25X (to divide it by 4).

Famous for its demanding and beautiful graphics, Metro 2033 Redux isn't that difficult to run anymore. Even our 2013 MBP did fine.

⚠️️ Medium Demand Levels

System Requirements: OS 10.10, Intel Dual Core Processor, 2 GB RAM, Intel HD3000 graphics card or better, 400 MB hard drive space.

Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 is yet another game from Valve and the sequel of the fan-favorite Left 4 Dead. One could argue that too many Valve games made it to this list, but truth is, they all bring something completely different to the table. And Left 4 Dead 2 is no exception.

The game puts you and 3 other friends in a world full of zombies where you are forced to work as a team. Each level will make you cross zombie-infested areas in order to reach a safe zone, all while doing your best to survive the hundreds of hideous creatures the game will throw at you. L4D2 will throw zombies at you in great numbers, but also tougher monsters to keep you on your toes.

Left 4 Dead 2 is the perfect example of a successful sequel and more proof that age doesn’t equal obsolescence. Now almost ten years old, Left 4 Dead 2 still has a large user base, beating out Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer in current Steam stats and sporting amazing performance on all three of our test machines.

Expand to see if your Mac run it

We tested the game using Medium settings everywhere, Anisotropic 2X, V-Sync off, Anti-Aliasing off, Multicore rendering Enabled and the 1280x800 resolution:

Left 4 Dead 2 Mac results

As you can see from these results, this is an extremely light game to run. Our 2013 MBP did great and I wouldn't be surprised if much older machines could play it just fine.

System Requirements: OS, 10.7, 2 GHz Intel Core Processor, 2 GB RAM, ATI Radeon 2400 or higher / NVIDIA 8600M / Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics card or better, 13 GB hard drive space.

The Competition

Even lacking some of the latest and greatest games, we had a hard time limiting the best FPS for Mac to a Top 10 list. The games below almost made it to our Top 10 but didn’t quite make the cut.

These games are high-quality and fun and I would recommend them in a heartbeat which is why they deserve to be mentioned:

Looking for free FPS games for Mac?

You may have noticed a few cheap games among our picks, but no free games.

These are some of the finest free FPS Mac games out there. While you wouldn’t expect them to be on the same level as our paid games, if free is what you’re looking for, there should be something here for you:

Paladins Mac

Paladins

A team-based shooter set in a fantasy universe that contains both modern-style weapons and fantasy and magical elements. Choose your Champion and then use the card & deck system to level your players up the way you want.

While Early Access, the game looks and plays great. And because Blizzard isn't bringing Overwatch anytime soon, Paladins is its best alternative.

Download from Steam

 

Wolfenstein Enemy Territory

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

Wolfenstein, free, multiplayer. Do I need to say anything more? Ok, a little. Play as axis or allies in team-based multiplayer combat where you need to cooperate to complete objectives in multiple scenario campaigns while leveling up your character.

Download from Splash Damage

 

Unreal Tournament Mac

Unreal Tournament

Introduced with much excitement, and with a playable alpha currently available, Unreal Tournament is a community-based effort by Epic to make a new version of the classic arena shooter.

However, the game has languished, with no updates since last summer, leaving the community frustrated.

Our Criteria

While everyone’s top ten list might be different, we strive to ensure that ours is at least a legitimate list for Mac gamers. To do that, we have a set of criteria we use for all of our games and lists:

Native support: These are Mac games, no Wine, Parallels or Bootcamp needed. They all install natively on your Mac.

MacOS performance: One of the main things we aim to provide that no one else does is a look at how these games perform on Macs. If you want to see how they run on consoles or Windows, go ahead, but we’re pretty sure that’s not why you’re here. Our games are all tested on a variety of different Macs under the exact same conditions:

iMac (5K, 27-inch, Late 2014)

3.5 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M290X (2GB)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2013)

2.4 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, Intel Iris 5100 (1.5GB)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016):

2.0 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, Intel Iris Graphics 540 (1.5GB)

We’ve had a lot of questions about this, but we test our games on Medium settings because we know Mac users hang onto their computers for a long time, because we can.

These are all the results of our tests in Frames per Second (FPS):

FPS games for Mac results

Game 2014 27-inch iMac 2016 13-inch MBP 2013 13-inch MBP
Borderlands 2 101.9 FPS 59.6 FPS 29 FPS
DE: Mankind Divided 36.3 FPS 0 FPS 0 FPS
CS: GO 114.6 FPS 82.6 FPS 37 FPS
Fortnite 71.9 FPS 27.9 FPS 14.7 FPS
BioShock Infinite 92.3 FPS 47.8 FPS 24.9 FPS
Superhot 60 FPS 60 FPS 31.5 FPS
Shadow Warrior 99 FPS 35.1 FPS 24.2 FPS
Modern Warfare 3 134 FPS 61.1 FPS 50.8 FPS
Left 4 Dead 2 236.6 FPS 115.6 FPS 69.9 FPS
Metro 2033 Redux 83.5 FPS 49.6 FPS 29.8 FPS
Team Fortress 2 149 FPS 74.1 FPS 35.3 FPS

And for reference, this is how we interpret the results:

Below 20 FPS Unplayable Laggy gameplay, full of stutters and slowdowns.
20-30 FPS Borderline Can be Ok in slow paced games. Still, not optimal.
30-45 FPS Playable Acceptable for most (most gaming consoles do this).
45-60 FPS Smooth Fluid gameplay, with no perceivable stutters.
60+ FPS Very Smooth For hardcore and professional players, a luxury for most.

We usually aim for 30 FPS, because 30 FPS is enough to guarantee a smooth and fluid experience.

FPS comparator

Critical acclaim: We all know how subjective reviews can be, and how games can be review bombed by the public for reasons sometimes having nothing to do with the game itself. But we make sure we pick only games that have been positively received by both professional reviewers and average gamers.

Pricing: We all want quality, but just like we hold onto our Macs as long as we can, we don’t have unlimited budgets for games. We always keep in mind price tags and production levels to give indies and AAA games equal chances. After all, we’re after games that are fun to play. Looks are important but fun gameplay is even more so.

Wrapping Up

If you’re into FPS games but feel that without PUBG and Overwatch there’s nothing for you on the Mac, this list should change your mind. Despite not having some of the latest and greatest shooters, there are still plenty of fun FPS games out there and this list should have at least one and probably more to suit your mood.

Whether you’re looking for high-end graphics that punish your system, a great story, something for your older Macbook and anything in between, there’s an FPS to suit your hardware and your style.

Which one is your favorite? Did we miss any you think belong on this list? Let us know in the comments section.

When I tried to play Unreal Tournament on my mac, it kept showing nothing (black screen) but I could hear the sound, then it quitted. Do you have any solution? Thanks!
By the way, here's my spec: iMac(21.5-inch, Late 2015), 2.8 GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB 1867 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 (1536MB)
When you have a solution, please send it to my email s970167@gmail.com thanks!

I'm checking on this for you, but as we said Epic seems to have dropped development on this title (we debated whether to include it or not) so if it's a problem with the game it's probably not going to get fixed, at least not anytime soon.

Single player vs. bots gave me the result you mention, Blitz vs. AI works as does Basic Training. That's all I've had a chance to test so far.

Hello:)

Great post as always, quick question, being a pc power user using a MBA, I want to get into some light gaming, can you recommend a light title to start off with on MBA (8 gb DDR3, 1.6 ghz i5, Integreated intel hd 5000)

Thanks!

Ric Molina

Glad you liked it 🙂
It really depends on what genre and type of games you enjoy but I"m sure there are a ton of indies that should get the job done on a MBA.
For example on this guide you should be able to play any game that did around 30 frames per second on our 2013 MacBook Pro test machine.
Even better, check one of our Performance reviews and see how we use the free Heaven benchmark to evaluate how a game should work on your Mac 😉
Let me know how it goes!

They're not too bad! No ideal but they can get the job done if you're willing to play at Medium settings and a modest resolution. You can check our Performance Reviews. We often use a Mac Mini to test the different games. https://www.macgamerhq.com/category/reviews/
