RPS Game Club: Manshoots!

This week the RPS Game Club will be celebrating our love of men with guns in a Men & Guns Manshoot Weekend Special. We’ve got two servers that are intended solely for the purpose of shooting men. They are:

The Team Fortress 2 Server:
The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Server:, actually you have to just search for this in the browser list, it’s called Rock, Paper, Shotgun of course. Search for Rock, to find it. It’s case sensitive, for some reason. Sigh.

Both provided by Multiplay! We will do war on those servers this coming Saturday and Sunday night (20th, 21st) from 7pm UK time. Choose your game, and JOIN US! (I’ll add some events on the Steam group as a reminder.)


  1. Out Reach says:

    What happens if I go pyro and reflect the manshoots?

    also is pyro even a man?????

  2. Baka says:

    Oh boy, looking forward!
    I don’t know which to choose first!

  3. Neoviper says:

    I have both of these games! I look forward to a great bounty of man shooting.

  4. Lobotomist says:


    My two favorite FPS now in RPS edition :D

  5. Mike says:

    More of this sort of thing please.

  6. Mashakosha says:

    Damn it, now I’m going to have to reinstall BC2. You win this round, RPS Manshoots!

  7. battles_atlas says:

    This must be such a stupid question, because no one, ever, in the history of time, has bothered explaining it, even on PCGs 4-steps guide to joining their servers that covers the obvious but ignores this: how do I actually connect to an IP address on BC2?

    • Mashakosha says:

      I believe you can use the searchy in BC2’s server browser to find it. Don’t know if it works on IPs, but you can definitely type in RPS or Rock Paper Shotgun and it should find it, depending on what the server’s actually called.

    • battles_atlas says:

      Yeah thats what I was going to rely on. Just confused by the addition of the IP address, as if it was in any way helpful.

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      Fair point, I forgot DICE had created an inaccessible abomination.

  8. Chizu says:

    Oh the choices, I have both and like both.
    Maybe I’ll dig out my older pc and play both at once!

  9. subedii says:

    Looking forward to this. Be sure to post announcements to the Steam group when things are kicking off, that’s helped before to get TF2 games going.

    Although then again, considering the group is so huge and there’s only so many server slots, maybe that’s not such a great idea after all.


  10. airtekh says:

    Noooo! TF2 relapse imminent! And I was doing so well …

    Must …. resist …. manshoots.

  11. dartt says:

    If you are going to come on the Tf2 server and you don’t have them already, you might want to get cashworks, frontier and, of course, REDFORT!

    • Mashakosha says:

      Redfort has been on the server for as long as I can remember. Think I’ve seen it on cashworks too, but can’t be sure.

    • VelvetFistIronGlove says:

      Mashakosha: you mistake dartt’s point. These maps are on the server. If you, the player, download them ahead of time on your PC, you will get connected and in game much quicker.

  12. President Weasel says:

    I look forward to shooting RPS Mans in the face on the BC2 server.

  13. The Hammer says:

    Damn, I’m away this weekend, and am thus unable to manshoot the shootermans.


    • TheApologist says:

      The phrase ‘manshoot the shootermans’ is pseudo-palindromic poetry. Beautiful work.

  14. Duffin says:

    Looking foward to the BC!

  15. Jhoosier says:

    Why do all the fun RPS things happen the exact moment I have a hot date planned? On the other hand, if she’s into the manshoots, this could be the awesomest date ever. It could be bacon, eggs and stickybombs for breakfast.

    If it doesn’t go well, I’ll take out all my angry frustration on you folks. Even the napalm will not burn as hot as the burn of my rejection!

  16. itsallcrap says:

    I’ll be on the TF2 server most of both nights :)

    … because I’m currently broke and so can’t go to the pub :(

  17. KauhuK says:

    Manly men shoothing manly men who shed manly tears to fallen manly battlebrothers.

    Count me in. I’ll be in both.

    Also I’m manlier than you are.

    • Trans says:

      Manlier… sounds kinda camp to me ;)

      But I’ll be there blasting men in the face with my trusty PP gun on BC. I may even lay a few sneaky mines… level 45 and not a single kill with stupid things :(

      Edit – I have committed suicide with them though, when stupid mans shoot me when I lay them. Unfortunately, it doen’t count as kills…

  18. rhizo says:

    Finally a RPSGC event I can participate in. See you on the BC2 server (or in the inevitable queue anyway).

  19. Morgawr says:

    What happened to the Bloody Good Time RPS game night that was going to be planned?

  20. Lloch says:

    Noooooooo ! I won’t be home both nights !

    Me very sad.

  21. ChosenOne54 says:


  22. Rond says:

    So, which mode will we play in BC2? I hope it’s rush.

    • Arthur Barnhouse says:

      By “I hope it’s Rush,” you meant, “I hope it’s Conquest,” Right?

    • Rond says:

      Well, anything goes. As long as there are choppers.

    • Axel McFly says:

      Yeah, i’d want to play some conquest as well. Gotta go with the classic Battlefield game mode. :)

  23. Theblazeuk says:


    You have no idea how frustrated it is looking for that bloody server if you assume BC2 works sensibly.

  24. SoulPride says:

    I haven’t played on Redfort for weeks. Looking forward to it!

  25. Stranglove says:

    I may join on BC2, if I can be bothered to install EADM again ¬¬

  26. Collic says:

    TF2 man shooting. I’m there :D

  27. l1ddl3monkey says:

    On for Bad Companying activities.

  28. Miker says:

    As an American, I’ll be up for manshoots around 9pm Eastern time, and I urge other American RPS readers to show up around that time as well.

    • Octacon100 says:

      As an Australian in Boston, I’ll be up for manshoots whenever there are mans to shoot. I also have chest hair in the shape of Australia, and I get in fights with tigers.

  29. WiPa says:

    TF2. DO WANT. I’ll be there.

  30. DMJ says:

    TF2 Soldier vs BC2 soldier. Who would win?


    • P3RF3CT D3ATH says:

      Depends on the classes of the two games. Medic from BC2 would beat medic from TF2 unless he’s got an ubercharge. Heavy would kill everything in his way. Sniper from TF2 would dominate and outsnipe the recon guy by a lot. Soldier would kill the engineer because his rocket launchers have 4 rockets in the barrel at once which would overkill any vehicle. Oh and rocket jump.

  31. HippoGlouton says:

    What parameters for the BC2 server ? HardCore Mode ? No RocketLauncher on infantry ?
    Sry if my questions suck but you have to understand : I’m French…
