Necromunda: Hired Gun
Necromunda: Hired Gun lands on the 4th spot in our most underrated PC games list. Movement shooter games have proven to be a successful genre, especially after the amazing success of DOOM 2016 and DOOM Eternal.
Set in the Warhammer 40k universe, all you have to do is control the titular Gun for Hire (e.g., the badass Bounty Hunter) in the city of Necromunda. You show your prowess as you fight off various gangs who think that they own the city. You have many abilities to use at your disposal, and you can even upgrade these as you progress in the game.
