Warhound is an FPP shooter where you make a career of the elite mercenary. When you are not working, you get new licenses and improve. When at work, you take part in the hottest world conflicts

Because you are a Warhound - an elite mercenary on the side of good.

The choice is yours. You've got a laptop and a map of the world. Presidents, businessmen, and ordinary people ask you for help where nothing more can be done officially. You choose a mission, then fly, clean and disappear. You get the reward and nobody knows anything.

Will you lead your carrier to reach the top?


> Manage your carrier. SOS messages come from many places. Freely plan you way of a mercenary.
> Develop your skills. Gain the license of an Alpinist to climb harder and harder rocks, learn to operate new vehicles - from jeep to tanks and boats; practice shooting and test weapons on your own firing ground.
> Fight the way you want. Each mission has a number of ways to reach the goal. The number depends on your abilities.
> Go back to where you already fought. Enemies are like weed which revive in uncultivated soil. Many missions can be repeated many times.
> Manage your equipment. Buy better weapons and trade the equipment found on the battleground.
> Use the intelligence service. Buy information that will allow you to learn more about your enemy.
> Specialize. By completing tasks of given type you become a specialist. Build your reputation which will bring you new orders and will open the way to the top of the ranking.
