Insurgency FAQ

Q: What is Insurgency?
A: Insurgency is a hardcore, tactical, and gritty modern first-person shooter created for Windows, Mac, and Linux and released in 2014. Set in a variety of Middle Eastern-themed maps, it has both PvP and cooperative multiplayer support for up to 32 and 8 players, respectively. Insurgency features over 15 maps, 7 multiplayer modes, 5 cooperative modes, and full Steam Workshop support with a plethora of custom mods and content from our community.

Q: I want to create a Community Server; where can I find more information on this matter?
A: We recommend checking this article from a member of our community.

Q: Are you still updating Insurgency?
A: We currently have no further plans to update Insurgency save for bug fixes and addressing other issues that might come up. While we have updated the game with free content and improvements for three years following its release, we are now focusing our resources on our new projects Day of Infamy and Insurgency: Sandstorm.

Q: I am a content creator and would like to create and monetize videos of your games. Do I have permission to do that?
A: Yes, you are free to create and monetize any video content of our games as you wish and upload it to YouTube, Twitch, or wherever. If you do, be sure to tag us on our social media accounts so we can check it out.

Q: Why have some of my videos of your game been demonetized on YouTube?
A: Unfortunately, due to recent changes in YouTube’s video monetization and advertising policies, some videos of our games have been demonetized and will give little or no payment to the uploader. It is suspected that this is because YouTube automatically flags our games as violent content with which advertisers would not like to associate. This is very unfortunate because, of course, we want that content and those content creators to be encouraged, but it’s out of our hands, and there’s nothing that we can do at this time.

Q: I have been VAC banned. What should I do?
If a user connects to a VAC-Secured server from a computer with identifiable cheats installed, the VAC system will ban the user from playing on VAC-Secured servers across all of Steam. VAC bans are not controlled by the game developer, but by Valve itself, so you will have to contact their support team here. For further information regarding VAC, please refer to the following steam article here.
