World of Padman - A freeware fun shooter!

World of Padman – A freeware fun shooter!

World of Padman is officially available in the current version 1.6.2 for all supported operating systems (Windows, Linux, MacOS). Here you can find all download links and installation instructions. In the meantime, we are also officially represented in the Snap Store, which should make our Linux users happy.

Get it from the Snap Store

Please note that WoP 1.6.2 requires a 64bit operating system. WoP 1.6.2 is backwards compatible, so you can play on older WoP 1.6 servers without restrictions. If you do not have a 64bit operating system, you will have to use the old WoP 1.6 patch from 2011. You can also join WoP 1.6.2 servers with it, but you will need at least the files wop_007.pk3 and wop_008.pk3 from the current version. This will result in the player and bot menu no longer working properly in WoP 1.6, but you can at least join a match with it.
