So you are not only an Xbox owner, but you are also a big shooter fan looking for what to play next? We've got you covered.
What makes a shooter? This article specifically covers shooters where the camera is set in either the first or third person, and gun-based combat makes up the primary core of the experience.
For the longest time, Xbox has been considered the home of console shooters, with its pioneering Xbox Live network atop the Halo franchise. The situation hasn't changed! Here are our picks for the best first and third-person shooters on Xbox One.
Updated February 20, 2017: We updated this list to include Sniper Elite 4 and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, because they're both wonderful picks for fans of stealth and horror shooters.
Battlefield 1 is without a doubt, the quintessential shooter experience available on Xbox One today. It's unprecedented, and dynamic open-world shooter gameplay soars to all new heights with environmental destruction not seen in the series since Bad Company 2.
Taking place in World War 1, Battlefield 1 steps into new territory for a big budget AAA shooter, bringing us the horrors of the world's first industrial-scale war, complete with an extensive arsenal of vicious and inelegant WW1-era weapons.
Explosive 32 vs. 32 multiplayer, sobering, historical campaign gameplay, blisteringly gorgeous Frostbite Engine visuals, and rapid and stable dedicated server infrastructure – Battlefield 1 is DICE's masterpiece.
Metro Redux is one of the most atmospheric and immersive shooters on Xbox One, and it's also among the best for value.
Comprised of two remastered titles, Metro Redux tells the story of the Ranger Artyom, as he attempts to survive a post-apocalyptic world where the surface of the Earth has become inhospitable. Roaming beasts, radioactive fallout, and cosmic anomalies plague the remaining population, who have turned Russia's Metro system into humanity's last bastion.
Metro Redux is as haunting as it is atmospheric, and will leave a lasting impression on fans of deep single player shooter campaigns everywhere.
DOOM is the triumphant return of one of the industry's most celebrated shooter franchises. Going back to basics, DOOM delivers piles of the series' core promise — the ability to kill legions of angry demons in all manner of bloody ways.
Rapid executions, a huge and deadly arsenal, a clever plot and lengthy campaign makes DOOM an example to be followed. Its multiplayer mode isn't too shabby either!
Gears of War 4
Gears of War 4 is the latest entry in the iconic Xbox exclusive franchise. Take control of JD Fenix in an explosive co-op campaign that boasts some of the most impressive cinematic visuals the Xbox One has to offer.
When you're done with the campaign, head into the five-player Horde mode and battle waves of increasingly difficult enemies and bosses, get addicted to a rewarding and deep class-based progression system and unlock piles of cosmetic skins and weapons. If competitive multiplayer is more your thing, Gears of War 4 delivers one of the most finely tuned and six versus modes in the series so far, steeped in visceral, cover-based third-person combat. Gears of War 4 is a great all-rounder.
Halo 5 is the latest entry in the Xbox's flagship franchise, and it takes the franchise into uncharted territory. A new enemy is threatening to subjugate humanity, and it's up to Master Chief to unravel the truth behind this new evil. Halo 5 doesn't just boast a classic Halo campaign, but also some of the tightest visuals and gameplay in the business.
The real joy of Halo 5, however, is its multiplayer mode, which has been continuously updated with free content since launch. Split between competitive Arena and an exciting Warzone mode, Halo 5 has the potential to keep you engaged for a very long time.
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Wolfenstein: The New Order kick-started a renaissance of high-quality reboots of classic shooters with its moving reimagining of the franchise that started it all. Play as William "B.J." Blazkowicz in a surprisingly deep single-player story set in an alternative 1960s where the Nazis won WW2.
Navigate the horrors of a totalitarian world crammed with mechanically-enhanced Nazis begging to be killed with Wolfenstein: TNO's responsive and bloody shooter combat.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is an example to be followed when it comes to rebooting classic franchises. It's a thoroughly great campaign shooter.
Titanfall 2 is the second entry in the futuristic mech twitch-shooter from the creators of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Take on blisteringly fast and fluid first-person multiplayer combat across several different competitive modes. Unlock a wide array of new class-based mechs, loadouts, and weapons, boasting far more content than its predecessor.
Titanfall 2 also rectifies one of the original game's biggest criticisms, a lack of campaign, delivering a story mode that is surprisingly engaging. If you're a fan of Call of Duty-like twitch shooters, Titanfall 2 takes the format to new heights, often literally.
Destiny garnered a mixed reception when it initially launched, but since then, Bungie has piled on heaps of additional content and expansions to keep the connected shooter alive. Millions enjoy the game due to its MMO-like features, polished shooting, and addictive loot systems.
Destiny is what you'd get if you took Borderlands and gave it a few shades of seriousness, an MMO's most loot-addictive qualities, and a Halo-like multiplayer experience. If you like some MMORPG in your FPS, Destiny is the way to go.
Overwatch is a purely multiplayer experience from Blizzard Entertainment, best known for Warcraft and Diablo. Overwatch is a 6 vs. 6 class-based shooter where players work together to beat the enemy team in a range of objective-based maps and game modes.
Featuring an eclectic cast of colorful heroes, Overwatch has captured the imagination of millions of gamers with Pixar-style art and shimmering gameplay polish. Overwatch is a pure multiplayer shooter that emphasizes team play above all else. Exciting, dynamic, and fun.
Rainbow Six Siege
Unlike a majority of today's first-person shooters, Rainbow Six Siege puts strategy and forethought at the heart of its gameplay. With flawless portrayal of atmospheric tension, the game sits among the most immersive of multiplayer shooters to date.
Although it initially had a rocky start, dozens of free updates and content drops have rejuvenated the series which now boasts a substantial following.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a unique entry on this list, because its gunplay is more a means to induce horror, instead of being central to its gameplay. Still, Resident Evil 7's shift to a first-person viewpoint, coupled with its extremely satisfying and well-designed shooting mechanics, firmly earn it a place on this list as a shooter fans must check out.
Ethan Winters is on a mission to find his wife, who has been missing for several years. After tracking her down to a decrepit plantation deep in a Louisiana swamp, Ethan falls ever deeper into a twisted nightmare that's as terrifying as it is engrossing. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a true return to form for the series that fans of horror games must not overlook.
Sniper Elite 4
Sniper Elite 4 is an incredible sniping game with an emphasis on tactics and stealth. Playing as Karl Fairburne, your goal is to sneak, snipe and stab your way through World War 2 Italy, on a mission to destabilize Mussolini's fascist regime.
Sniper Elite 4 grants the player various guns and gadgets to deploy across huge, detailed open-world maps. As its namesake suggests, Sniper Elite 4 features industry leading bullet ballistics for its sniping mechanics, complete with gloriously gory x-ray kill cams. This is a game for shooter fans who enjoy a bit of stealth gameplay on the side.
