    FPS (First Person Shooter) games are perhaps the most sought after by everyone. Just like PC Shooting games, with a broader approach, FPS focus on what matters: the shooter. However, although classic titles like Counter Strike don't require a very powerful PC, it can be difficult to find other FPS that run on outdated PCs. That's why we've selected the best weak pc fps games.

    We know that it takes work – and costs a lot of money – to keep your PC up to date to be able to run all the latest FPS games in decent quality. That's why we've separated 18 FPS games for weak PCs that should even run on a potato, if you don't mind. Also check out our Weak PC games: 48 games that run on any PC.



    Best FPS Games for Weak PC

    Lists aren't always perfect and getting unanimity on them is a virtually impossible task. That's why we've organized our list of FPS games by alphabetical order. That is, the weak PC FPS games that come first are not necessarily better than the ones at the bottom of the list.

    Let's play!

    1. Battlefield Bad Company 2

    We started with a weak PC FPS game that we've covered in other posts: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 does what it does best: create a multiplayer experience that raises its head and shoulders above other shooters. All the pieces fit together perfectly in a line that brings out the best of the battlegrounds, with Rush as the piece of resistance.

    6.Doom 1

    It ticks off each item on a list of things a modern Doom should have, including several items you didn't even know were on the list.

    10. Far Cry 2

    13. Left 4 Dead

    Fast zombies? Check. Non-stop tension and intensity? Check. A very poor quality PC FPS game? Check. When it comes to co-op multiplayer, this game is a badass and forces players to work together.

    15. Prey 2006

    16. Quake 3

    It is an excellent FPS game for weak PC. The fast and complex gameplay based on the Quake series is a breath of fresh air these days, where games with slow and complex movement, RPG item unlocking and health regeneration are still somehow labeled as “competitive”. This one is root.
