Construct a First Person Shooter

Develop your own FPS game in Unity!

First-person shooters are not only immensely popular, but also one of the oldest genres in all of video game history. With exciting action gameplay, opportunities for storytellers, and even easy adaptation to multiplayer, it’s no wonder that they remain in high demand in both hobbies and careers.

Through this course, you’ll build your own FPS game in Unity while learning core mechanics for shooting, player movement, and similar. You’ll also get the chance to build pathfinding enemies with simple AI tactics – all using systems that you can expand for your later projects.

No matter how complex your planned features are, these FPS essentials will help put you on the path to building your dream FPS project!

This course assumes familiarity with Unity and C#.

You will learn how to:

  • Create a moveable player character
  • Master shooting mechanics with object pooling
  • Implement pathfinding enemies with Unity NavMesh
  • Add health and ammo pickups
  • Set up audio and particle effects
  • Develop FPS-appropriate UIs

… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.



The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
