Best PS4 FPS Games
Below is a full list of the best PS4 FPS games. In no particular order, these are our favourite first-person shooters on PS4, as determined by our editorial team.
Building off its excellent predecessor, DOOM Eternal is arguably the best first-person shooter on PS4. Phenomenal gunplay gives life to an arsenal packed full of mods, alt-fires, and weapons only the folks over at id Software could think of. With fast-paced action, plenty of combat arenas in which to experiment, and speedy movement, DOOM Eternal feels like a game going at 100 miles-per-hour, but you're always in control. One of the franchises which gave birth to the FPS genre is back on top form, and we don't see much topping it.

The first-person shooter that only moves when you do, SUPERHOT forces you to rethink years of gameplay training with its puzzle-like encounters. Backed by a smart storyline and addictive post-game score-chasing, this is one of the more original FPS games on our list.
When it comes to lootin' and shootin', few games top Borderlands, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a great way to get your fix on PS4. The bundle includes the fantastic Borderlands 2 alongside the not-so-fantastic-but-still-fun Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, so you're getting a good amount of gun-loving for your money. The fact that both games fully support co-op play is the icing on the cake.
This is an interesting collaboration between id Software and Avalanche Studios that sees the last-gen open world FPS return for a surprising sequel. The story is daft, but the gunplay on offer here is some of the most fun on PS4. The combination of id's shooting expertise and Avalanche's approach to emergent gameplay results in some brilliant fights, using inventive powers and weapons to send bodies flying. It might not be the best game overall, but you'll have a great time when it comes to the action itself.
The series hit its stride on PS3, but Killzone Shadowfall was a highly entertaining launch title that seriously showed off what the PS4 could do. A visual spectacle, as is the norm coming from Guerrilla Games, it might not have had a great campaign, but the shooting itself was solid and the multiplayer remains a lot of fun. It's not the best in the series, but its unique style and impressive tech made it an early PS4 treat.
