TriggerBound is a team-based first-person shooter multiplayer video game developed by Simple Studios for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Infinity, and V2. The game will release in an unannounced date.
In the year of 20AA,the Chaos TV Network were in trouble,view numbers were at an all-time low and the board knew that the CEO would have their heads fi this didn't change soon. They tried everything they could think of,reality TV,renewing the 1000th season of The Sompsins but nothing worked. Eventually they decided to use illegal cloning technology to create a bloodsport show,TriggerBound. They quickly took to the black market to obtain the resources needed to build enough cloning machines and to find people murderous enough to enter the show. While they got a lot weirder cast than they expected, they made good use of them and created the Bloodsport show that saved CTVN.
The game itself revolves around two teams battling in a variety of game modes set in different environments or maps, often with a factory-warehouse theme.
Players can choose to play as one of eleven character classes in these teams, each with his or her own unique strengths, weaknesses, and weapons. The basic elements, that being one primary weapon, one secondary weapon, and one melee weapon.
There is a daily leaderboard of the top-scoring players known as the Bounty Leaderboard. The top 10 players on the Bounty Leaderboard are marked with a bounty symbol above their heads, killing them gives you bonus points on the bounty leaderboard depending on how high they are on the board. The top 3 players at the end of the day are given a special Bounty skin for their most-played class.
In-universe, Team ATB are a team of escaped clones who want to shut down Triggerbound by killing the producers and interfering in the matches. Every week a gamemode will be selected to be "Invaded" by Team ATB in which a random number of tough AI bots will appear to try and kill both teams in an attempt to cause the match to end in a stalemate. Whoever kills the ATB will gain special gun skins depending on who they killed them as and bonus points on the leaderboard.

CTF/Capture The Flag
A FPS necessity. It is a 2 team gamemode in which each team has a flag(usually near their spawn) and the enemy team must capture it and bring it to their flag a certain number of times.
another FPS classic gamemode,Your team must kill the enemy team a certain number of times to win
One player on each team is randomly chosen to be the VIP. They can only use their melee weapon and have half of their normal health. If they die nobody on their team respawns anymore. The goal is to take out the enemey VIP and his team afterwards while protecting your own
Arguably the most complicated of TB's gamemodes. The rules vary from map to map but the basics are that there is a large amount of items that are contained within an area. You must use tools or xXx_Skill_xXx to obtain them for your team.

Added in the Shellshock update.|
|California Comic Compilation Convention||VIP||Set in an outdoor comic book convention, 4C acts as a parody of the MOBA genre. The stage itself is a simple maze of rows of shelves of comics, and each team's spawn point continuously spawns creeps. These creeps are simple cardboard cutouts, which attack enemies that they find. However, they do no damage normally, and only 1 damage on a crit.|

In 2009, a mod for Half-Life 2 came into existence known as TriggerBound: Source, the original beta was only played by some but from what can be gathered it was built as a mix between TF2 and MOBAs like League of Legends or DOTA, a whole 6 years before Overwatch would try something similar. Most of the characters seen within the current incarnation were the same though reports and gameplay videos show that Ace was often tweaked and even removed at one point because he had rather hard-to-hit hitboxes. This was eventually nerfed for good by giving him the least health out of all the classes. Notably missing from the game were Juggernaut and Tessa though Juggarnaut was planned but was too hard to code in the source engine.
Not much else is known about the beta of Triggerbound: Source but the normal source game can still be played and there is even a special skin for Ace's Turret if you get to a secret area in the Source game's first map CTF_Coliseum.
