Redneck Rampage


Redneck Rampage is a 1997 first-person shooter game developed by Xatrix Entertainment and published by Interplay. The game is a first-person shooter with a variety of weapons and levels, and has a hillbilly theme, primarily taking place in a fictional Arkansas town. Many of the weapons and power-ups border on the nonsensical, and in some ways the game is a parody of both first-person shooter games and rural American life. It features music by psychobilly and cowpunk artists such as The Beat Farmers and Mojo Nixon. The game has been re-released on and Steam with support for Windows and macOS.

Redneck Rampage is a first-person shooter and offers a variety of ways for the character to regenerate health or hit points. These power-ups consist of moon pies, pork rinds, and alcohol. A small supply of each can be carried for future use (the two exceptions being pork rinds and Delicious Googoo Clusters, which are used automatically upon being picked up). Each of these power-ups have distinct disadvantages: The more food the character eats, the more flatulent he becomes (represented by a “gut” meter in the user display), making it difficult to sneak up on enemies as the character would move forward and make a distinct fart sound frequently after eating. However, eating food does decrease the “drunk meter” slightly.
