'''''Sven Co-op''''' (usually abbreviated as '''''SC''''') is a co-operative game originally based around ''Half-Life''. Released initially as a Mods|modification on January 19, 1999, it was made available on Steam as a standalone game on January 22, 2016.
In ''Sven Co-op'' players must work together against AI-controlled enemies and solve puzzles as a team. The majority of the maps are user-created with the exception of the original maps created by the game's developers.
**Donators have secondary fire that makes crowbar more powerful against hostiles, but drains suit power.
*Pipe Wrench (with ability to repair or revive friendly Sentry Guns)
*9mm Pistol (Half-Life)|9mm Pistol
*.357 Magnum (multiplayer version)
*Shotgun (Half-Life)|Shotgun (secondary fire makes the shotgun shoot automatically, but with less accuracy)
*Crossbow (Half-Life)|Crossbow (multiplayer version)
*Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher (Half-Life)|RPG
*Tau Cannon (with less secondary fire recoil)
*Fragmentation Grenade (Half-Life)|Grenade (secondary fire drops all grenades in one projectile, making "banana bomb")
*Satchel Charge (can be picked up or kicked)
*Laser Trip Mine (Half-Life)|Laser Trip Mine
**For donators, secondary fire releases a chumtoad that hinders enemy ranged attacks and also poisons NPCs. This only works if the player has at least 10 snarks.
*M-40A1 Sniper Rifle (increased damage, decreased accuracy without scope)
*M249 Squad Automatic Weapon
*Displacer Cannon (Only in the 5.0)
*Medkit - Allows you to heal other players by 10 points and revive non-gibbed ones for 50. Although a player can only carry a max of 100, the points regenerate over time.
*9mm Uzi - 32 round submachine gun. Can be held in akimbo (duel-wield) for more power but a longer reload time. Donators can use Golden Uzis, which do considerably more damage.
*Submachine Gun (Half-Life)|Submachine Gun - Fires in Full Automatic, secondary fire zooms in.
*5.56mm M16 w/ M203 grenade launcher - Fires in a 3 round burst. Grenades now have to be individually prepared before firing.
*5.56mm Minigun - Unlike other weapons, must be picked up off the ground using E, and must be dropped before using another weapon. Fires in full-auto, with a long revving up time. Uses a single 600 round clip, additional ammo is added to the clip through SCXPM Ammo regeneration, picking up other miniguns, etc.
''Sven Co-op'' (as its name suggests) is a game that relies on cooperative effort. This could include simple tactics such as boosting another player to allow access to an otherwise unreachable area, working as a team to defeat enemies or "bosses" (usually used as term to refer to a final enemy/enemies that are tougher or the toughest of the normal enemies), healing teammates, or even reviving fallen teammates. Battles are action-packed, with a variety of enemies, ranging from Hazardous Environment Combat Unit to Xen and Race X creatures.
Although some maps are included with sven co-op, the majority are made by the community. Maps come in all shapes and sizes. Some are very long or in a series (e.g. The escape series where the players are "used as lab rats", and decide to escape), and some can be very short (e.g. sc_subway train where you and the team of players gets to the osprey helicopter). The gameplay ranges from standard walkthrough maps, where players fight their way from point A to point B with little story, to maps where several players fool around in an amusement park-like area. There are also tower defense maps, where players must survive an onslaught of enemies, and even "Maze" maps where players must navigate through large, complex mazes.
''Sven Co-op 2'', using the Source engine, is in development. The developers have stated they will not continue it untill they complete the ''Half-Life'' version. A supposed (but unconfirmed) statement from the developers states they will continue work on ''Half-Life'' for the forseeable future. This remains unconfirmed however.
