* UnbreakableWeapons
** There is, however, a rare GoodBadBug that can cause your rifle to "jam" until you switch weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* SniperRifle: The Marksman class in the full Jagex version wields one of these. There are no dedicated scoped rifles in the original version, but the regular scopeless infantry rifle often pulls double duty as a sniper rifle of sorts (hey, SimoHayha did it).


* SchizoTech: The default graphics for the rifle are loosely based on an M1 Garand/M14 from the Second World War, the SMG is clearly a Heckler & Koch [=MP5=], the shotgun appears to be a WW1 trench-gun, and the grenades are based off of the WW2 pineapples.

* RealIsBrown: Many of the more natural maps. Actually justified by the quasi-UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne aesthetic, as one can infer that the ground has been churned to mud by several years of HopelessWar.

''Ace of Spades'' is an online multiplayer FirstPersonShooter with destructible, modifiable voxel-based terrain. To sum it up simply, it's what you might get if you were to cross ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''[='=]s class-based action and color coded teams with ''{{Minecraft}}''[='=]s building blocks and boxy character models.

* AlienSky: The {{Skybox}} can be set to a number of hues by server command, some of which are genuinely creepy. There are also scripts for a ''Minecraft''-style day and night cycle and [[SillinessSwitch Disco Mode]], the latter of which is now thoroughly depreciated.

The original, pre-Jagex version of the game is still legally available -- and still free. It also seems to have a playerbase as large as, or even larger than, the Jagex version. Because Jagex now owns the name ''Ace of Spades'', the community supporting the original version of the game has been named ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Build and Shoot]]'', and the pre-Jagex version of the game can be downloaded freely [[http://buildandshoot.com/ from their site]].

In the original, freeware version, the game takes place on a large map, which may be randomly generated or selected from a range of fan-made arenas. You play as a member of one of two teams, with the choice of weapons between a rifle, a sub-machine gun or a shotgun. You other equipment consists of a spade (for removing and acquiring blocks), 50 blocks (for building), and three grenades. The point of the game is usually to capture the enemy's intelligence a certain number of times (though several other game modes are also available). Both digging tunnels and building structures for cover will aid you in this goal. You may change the color of the blocks you place by using the arrow keys to look through the pallet, or by right-clicking something else to sample its color. A popular strategy is to build a foxhole in the side of a hill, using the same color blocks as the hill, and snipe from it with a rifle.

There is no kill-cam, so you do not know the location of your killer unless you manage to spot him before you fall.

Added DiffLines:

* InsistentTerminology: Jagex insists on calling the original, freeware version of the game a "prototype," even though it's a complete, stable, and fully playable game in its own right.
