What Is Prop Hunt in Garry’s Mod?

Prop Hunt in Garry’s Mod is like the game we all know and love, hide and seek. Players on the GMod server are broken up into two teams: one being the people who get to hide first and the other team who are the hunters or seekers. Basically, the players chosen to hide first will be spawned in as props and they have 30 seconds to hide. Then the hunter’s role is to go out and try to find the players disguised as props. Once you are found and killed, you will not be able to respawn until that round has completed. At the end of each round, the roles are swapped so the hunters become the hiders and the hiders become the hunters.

How to Install the Prop Hunt Game Mode?

To start playing Prop Hunt, you first need to install the GMod game mode for a base of the game. There are many community-made game modes for Prop Hunt, many features different updates or additions to them. To download this GMod game mode all you need to do is “subscribe” to it on steam and add it to your collection. We will link the game mode that we personally like to use because of the features that are implemented into it. You don’t have to pick the same one, but if you don’t have one, we recommend installing this one here onto your GMod server.

What Maps Can We Play in Prop Hunt?

In Garry’s Mod, there are many prop hunt maps that you can choose from. There have been tons of people from the Garry’s Mod community that have made maps for prop hunt that you can install directly into your very own GMod server. To find maps for prop hunt, you’ll want to go to the steam workshop, make sure you’re on the Garry’s Mod section, and search for “Prop Hunt.” There are many to choose from, so we will go over some of the ones that we think are the best for your GMod server!

Office2017 (ph_office2017):
This map is one of our favorites because this is one of the first-ever maps that we have ever played when we first started getting into Prop Hunt. This map is pretty self-explanatory, it features a full office space where you and your friends can disguise as common office items and hide to defeat the other team! We definitely recommend trying this map out for your own GMod server!

This is a map of the very well known show Spongebob Squarepants. This is the map of the famous Bikini Bottom in the TV show. The map features things like Spongebob’s house, Squidward’s house, & of course, the Krusty Krab. We definitely recommend getting this map if you ever watched the show as a kid as it does a pretty good job of re-creating it!

Container Ship:
We think this map is very cool, this map is very large and can hold up to 45 players. This map features a huge container ship used for cargo. This map makes it very easy to hide, making it tough for people to find you. However, when you have a lot of friends to play with, this map can be a ton of fun!

There are tons more maps out there, we have just listed a few that we have tried and tested out ourselves. We think if you’re just starting to get into Prop Hunt, then these maps are a few good ones to download and try with your friends!
