Necromunda: Hired Gun is a first-person shooter developed by Streum On Studio. You play as a hired gun in Necromunda, an infamous hive city in the Warhammer 40k universe. When your latest job sours, you quickly find yourself involved in a plot above your paygrade involving strange tech and mysterious people. The story doesn’t offer anything to make factions or characters interesting for someone who isn’t already invested in Warhammer 40k lore, so it’s ultimately just boring, if mostly understandable.
Given its list of features, Hired Gun seems like it should be fun. However, for every part I enjoyed, something else dragged the experience down. In my ten-hour playthrough, nothing stood out as especially fun or horrific, making the game as competent as it was bland. I’d only recommend it to people who can stomach a functional but unremarkable FPS.
Necromunda: Hired Gun is available now for $39.99 on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One but is 15% off through June 10 on Xbox and PC.
