Forums  /  Shots Fired: Overkill (November 13-19)  /  Submissions & Info


Shots Fired is an online speedrunning marathon exclusively for shooter games. This will be our fifth marathon.

What counts as a shooter game?

¤ If it has a gun, it is a shooter game. This includes FPS, TPS, and 2D games.
¤ If enemies have a gun, it will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
¤ If it is an alternative shooter such as a camera game, it will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However, more conventional shooters will be given priority.

You can submit any game you want, whether or not it meets this criteria. In the end, we'll decide whether or not it meets the theme of the marathon.

Important Dates:

¤ Submissions: September 15 - October 20
¤ Cuts: October 22
¤ Schedule: October 29
¤ Marathon Dates: November 15-19

We will be doing submissions through You can submit by clicking "Submit game" on the left of this page.

There is no limit on how many games or categories you can submit. Submissions will require a video of yours so that we can verify that your estimate is reasonable.

If enough submissions are received, we will extend the marathon dates to start earlier, up to the 12th.

Yes, runs will need to have English commentary. This could be done by someone other than yourself.

Communication from us will be in English, but it's pretty small - all we do after submissions is ask for availability, give instructions for how to stream, and tell you when you're live.


Pac released an update so we're now able to edit/delete submissions. Just let me know if anyone needs any changes!


Only a couple more days to submit! The submission form will close on October 21st at 08:00 UTC. Don't forget to get your submissions in!
