CS:GO got heavy, I know. So, to continue the addiction of shooting exchange and competitiveness, we have gathered below 24 very light FPS (first-person shooter) games that can easily run on a weak PC. Check out!

Attention: most games below require 2GB of RAM, i3 processor (at most) and a video card that, in the best case, we can call average. We're talking about a weak PC, not Xuxa's PC.

1. Team Fortress 2



Team Fortress 2 is Valve's lost gem. The game was the first to combine the FPS genre with classes and characters with specific abilities. The model was later copied by games like Overwatch, Apex Legends, Valorant and others. Despite being old, the game still has a very solid player base and, with its cartoonish graphics, bets on a more "childish" and colorful style.

  • Processor: 1.7 GHz
  • RAM memory: 512 MB
  • Video card: 256 MB memory video card, with DirectX 8.1 support (NVIDIA GeForce 5 or ATI X1500, or better)

2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the best COD we can recommend for weak PCs. Belonging to one of the most successful FPS franchises, the game broke player records before being remastered. Like all titles in the series, Modern Warfare 2 has an incredible campaign and an addictive multiplayer mode with several different modes.

  • RAM memory: 1GB

3. Battlefield: Bad Company 2



Battlefield: Bad Company 2 stands out among one of the best games in the franchise, even when compared to more current titles. Following the series' signature recipe, Bad Company 2 offers dozens of weapons, explosives and, in addition, several vehicles for you to drive or pilot, making combats always very frantic and dynamic, especially in multiplayer.

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.0 GHz (ou melhor)
  • RAM memory: 2GB

4. Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is the best title in the franchise to play on a weak PC. The game reinvented the series and introduced an open world that offered a level of freedom not yet seen in an FPS game.

5. Crysis 2

One of the big ones. Even today, Crysis is seen by many as a heavy game, since at the time of its release only VERY good computers ran it. Today, luckily, we can already recommend it for weak PCs. Following the events of the first title, Crysis 2 puts you in a ruined New York, in possession of an arsenal of weapons and equipment that transforms you into a war machine.

For a change, STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl is an FPS that focuses less on action and more on story. In it, patience is a much more important factor than speed and reflex, as the plot unfolds slowly as you explore and progress through the game. Otherwise, Shadow of Chernobyl feels very much like a survival game.

The big difference here are the various game modes, whether in cooperative multiplayer, competitive, all against all, teams, etc, in addition to the single-player mode full of missions and challenges.
