Gameplay: A sandbox of infinite possibilities

Garry's Mod is a game unlike anything you're used to. And that's because it lacks any story or objective, simply offering a playground where you can do whatever you want. Armed with your Physics Gun, GMod allows you to explore, create, and destroy objects, as well as experience all kinds of improbable situations, giving free rein to all your ideas. The limit? Your imagination.

Getting started with creating and building in Garry's Mod is really simple. To do this, simply access its Sandbox Mode and open its construction tools. In its menu, you will find a wide range of functions with which to manipulate objects, such as the Physics Gun, the Tools Gun, or an option to delete elements on the screen. Once you have familiarized yourself with each of these tools, simply place any object from the game's library using the Physics Gun and let your imagination run wild, causing all kinds of chaos on the screen.

Whether you're building a car, a house, a helicopter, or a tank made of boxes, Garry's Mod's creative freedom knows no bounds. And for many, this fun title is the closest thing to returning to childhood because, in a matter of seconds, you can create any world and any object you can imagine.
