Unofficial Server List[edit]

Links to the unofficial servers should be added. One of them is Gunbound Classic —Preceding unsigned comment added by CaptSmokey6 (talkcontribs) 08:36, 6 January 2010 (UTC)


MMOG Assessment[edit]

Stub - needs referencing, asserting itself as an MMOG and needs to read less like a list. --Samtheboy (t/c) 00:54, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi! I'll be deleting a mass of info and/or consolidating it under the Gameplay section in a short while. If you want, have a good read of WP:NOT#GUIDE, WP:NOT#INFO, and scope guidelines for an idea of what I'll be doing. Cheers. Ong elvin 02:38, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Information Cropping[edit]

Hi! I'll be explaining why I've done each of my edits as I do them. Might be helpful to read WP:NOT#GUIDE, WP:NOT#INFO, and WP:CVG/GL#Scope_of_information before continuing. Ong elvin 01:34, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

First up, Gameplay. Removed the explanation on how the shooting is done. The link to Artillery (computer game) provides sufficient explanation on its own. The links to the game guide should only be mentioned in the External Links section. The Weather section doesn't need a description of each day. The Gameplay's single sentence is sufficient for the scope of Wikipedia. Ong elvin 01:41, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Next up, Mobiles and Weapon Classes. This information is pretty much just a list of information and explains the workings of the game beyond the scope of Wikipedia. A simple this game is like Rock Paper Scissors will suffice. Listing the pros and cons of making a particular selection is easily game guide material. I killed the Weapon Classes section and moved Mobiles to a subsection of Gameplay. Likewise, I removed Item information. Ong elvin 01:54, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Finally, I've removed the Game Modes section from the Wiki. They don't provide insight to how the game is played beyond the artillery link, and only the Jewel mode is any different whereby the player is firing at Jewels instead of other players. Ong elvin 02:06, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

and these are all reasons why wikipedia is going to hell Thanks alot ong elvin, you are a douchebag —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.164.6.28 (talk) 00:37, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if this thing I added should be kept...[edit]

I've added a comment that the mobiles in tag have seperate health values (that is, they do not share their health). I'm not sure if this should be kept, and only thought that it might be a helpful addition. Eyra 16:24, 10 October 2007 (UTC) Bio mobiles have low defence but a higher health bar. Steel mobiles have high defence and have a "shield" that recovers over time, similar to regaining health. Bomb mobiles reffer to bombs and fire... Laser mobiles deal with lasers for example, A-sate; it uses a laser pointer above it which signals the angle of the shot. And on my personal note Kalsiddon is the best mobile. ~ 1337 h4x012 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 123abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz (talkcontribs) 06:08, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Well all tag games I've played use separate health values for each team member. I'd say it's not really necessary, but could be left in. Although I'd reword it slightly in keeping it. Ong elvin 14:22, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Where is Gunbound Revolution?[edit]

Umm, I don't know if you guys know this, but Gunbound World Champion is not played anymore. It's Gunbound: Revolution serviced by ijji. This page needs to be completely redone, as this is not in existence in North America. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Drizzt908 (talkcontribs) 04:59, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Incorrect. There is a page on GunBound Revolution, the North American version. Fortunately, Wikipedia does not revolve around North America. Gunbound is originally Korean, it would make more sense to have the page GunBound be about the Korean GB, GunBound World Champion. Lastly, "this is not in existence in North America" is a really bad reason to want to rewrite something... --MooNFisH (talk) 23:47, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Well moonfish, you are incorrect now because the rest of the world is using season 2 :) Kuradachi (talk) 04:10, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Note: Wolf can be now used in Gunbound Revolution —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dragaan (talkcontribs) 04:03, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Gunbound's Origins?[edit]

I don't know whether this is true, but I'm just wondering (if there any other Koreans using English Wiki), didn't Gunbound used to be called "Fortress" (or its Korean transliteration) in Korea around 8 years ago? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.245.7.89 (talk) 11:52, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I do remember playing this game in the fall of 2003. Does anyone know the history of this game? I googled around a bit and found this site that is a Gunbound FAQ with a copyright of 2002. --Mintrepublic (talk) 05:08, 27 June 2009 (UTC)


You are right I used to play gunbound back in 2004. The game is much older than the article states. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.146.129.114 (talk) 17:10, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Wolf mobile[edit]

I heared Wolf is currently an exclusive mobile to the latin and international GunBound services, is this true ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.89.166.33 (talk) 14:06, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Outdated[edit]

Can we please update this page? 71.131.204.192 (talk) 00:40, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

2011 updates for Gunbound. Official website for the international server is http://gunbound.softnyx.net (softnyx.com is currently being used for the latino version).

As for the official local servers, Philippines - http://gunbound.softnyx.ph Korea - http://gunbound.softnyx-korea.net Brazil - http://gunbound.softnyxbrazil.com Central and South America - http://gunbound.softnyx.com Indonesia - http://gb.softnyx.co.id

Trojan Behavior[edit]

When I try to install GunBound, Kaspersky Security goes nuts. It points out a dozen or more different attempts to alter stuff in the WINDOWS directory, and identifies at least a couple of them as behavior typical of Trojans. I had trouble looking up information about the type of control GunBound was trying for, so I came here, hoping to find more information - nothing.

So... if this is normal, unharmful activity that Kaspersky is being pointlessly picky about, a note to that effect - explaining what's going on - would be useful here. And if it's something that's going to put a malicious Trojan on your computer, a note would be even more important. Let's get some useful info here! Kilyle (talk) 00:26, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

About 10 years late, but GB was protected by Inca's nProtect GameGuard anticheat, which is what the AV would detect as rootkit/trojan-like. --Miyu5char (talk) 00:47, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Brazilian gang "La Firma" kidnapping[edit]

I found some news about a Brazilian gang kidnapping a GunBound player to steal his account: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-07/18/content_6392309.htm. Wondering if this should be added to the article. Alexandru Stanoi (talk) 14:29, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Ijji no longer hosts gunbound[edit]

As of June 23, 2009 NHN USA inc. will be closing down GunBound for North America on July 24, 2009. - Not sure where this belongs but I'm sure it belongs here somehow. protospork 01:23, 10 December 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Protospork (talkcontribs)

Original Release Date[edit]

Its listed as being 2005 on this page, but it was actually originally released in 2003? The best source I can find for this is here: http://announcements.bursamalaysia.com/EDMS/annweb.nsf/8b25383a269fcce548256d79001af770/482568ad00295d0748256eb300369bb0/$FILE/GunBound%20Release%201.doc 'About Softnyx.com

Jinho Kim, its chief executive officer, founded Softnyx in 2001. Softnyx began its business with mobile phone games and Gunbound. The first mobile phone game was released in August 2001 and Gunbound Korea was released the following year, May 2002. In August 2003, Gunbound International Service (GIS) was launched and it became a success from December 2003 until today.' I would add this in, but I'm a wiki newb. 86.20.225.31 (talk) 13:09, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

The game appeared on gunbound.net, their english-translated site, with the tagline "GunBound, Shooting Game Of a New Generation. Please show us Avatar's ability!". Players had to log into this site before it launched a full-screen game on their computer. The game's subtitle only ever appeared on the official softnyx.net company promotion site, which was Thor's Hammer(launch) then World Champion (around 2004?) This site appears to have launched in July, 2002, but the downloadable game didn't appear until August 5th, 2002. There weren't many good quality free to play games at the time, and Worms was a popular style of game but a waning brand at the time. It quickly became massivly popular among children and teenagers between 2003 and 2006. Surfing through the archives you can see every 8 months they needed major server expansion. The game never truly went under, as some nostalgia-bound people like myself believe... but pay-to-win absolutely killed it among it's most popular crowd. They eventually mitigated the amount you could pay-to-win, but the damage was done quickly, people evacuated. The population in 2006 was nowhere near it's 2004 equivalent.

Addendum to the above: Recent reviews, articles, and youtube videos from players cite rampant "cheating and hacking" as the reason the game is unplayable. It seems the problem has been quite back-and-forth since 2008, but nostalgic spenders may keep the game in a semi-alive state for many years to come. This may be one of the few f2p games that "lasts forever", somehow living in a paralell universe where the only battles are "trust fund" vs. "script kiddie".

Announcement of Game ~May 2002[edit]

Announcement of game is around may 2002 - see https://web.archive.org/web/20150820022646/http://company.nexon.com:80/Eng/Company/AboutUs/History/History_2002.aspx ... Where did they announce it? Is there another source? Nexon seems to have scrubbed most of their history from their revamped site. --Miyu5char (talk) 00:35, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 19 July 2014[edit]

Please change the beginning from free-to-play to was free-to-play, now pay-to-win. Gubnbound Thor's Hammer was free-to-play, while the new version require payment in order to win competitively. 72.235.33.251 (talk) 07:52, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Bunge / Land Damage[edit]

It's the shape of damage dealt to the land. Each weapon creates different kind of land damage, some create deeper damage to the land compared to others (although using items/avatars could modify this behaviour).

It matters cause you could make your opponent(s) to fall to the abyss (the bottom of the screen/map) to win the battle instead of dealing damage until their health become zero, sometimes it's easier to bunge your opponent(s) depending on your strategy.
