I finally got around to applying the server browser patch to our ‘Death Warrant: Monster Mash 3 – Invasion RPG‘ server, so you can find it once again under Team Deathmatch! I’m in the process of cleaning up the config files, testing the over 100 mods for stability, and have weeded out a few maps that were causing the server to fail when downloading a certain package. I’ve gone through the full map rotation, and they’re all working well. I’m so glad to see that people are already coming back and have spent quite a few hours killing monsters, bringing it quickly back into the top 10!
For those unfamiliar, Invasion was a game type in UT2004 that pits a team of players in a co-op battle against waves of monsters. Clan Death Warrant has (and still does) run 2 of the most popular Invasion servers, Monster Mash 1 and number 2 was added because the first server was so consistently full. Onslaught is what got me into UT2004, but as time goes on, it’s the heavily modded servers that I have the most fun with.
Epic decided not to include the Invasion game type with UT3, but several people developed mods that were a good start toward bringing it back. I, along with some friends, ChocoCake, Savagedogg38, Nightwolf, and others combined the best parts of RBTT Invasion, Galtanor’s Invasion with Davision’s and Frager’s monsters, Battlemode’s BattleRPG, and a WHOLE BUNCH of custom weapons and dozens of maps modded with special weapon pickups and path nodes for monsters to spawn on. I’ve got a fast redirect server for downloads, and please be patient if the game appears to lock up when you load the first map. It takes a minute to decompress and pre-cache the materials.
This video is 7 years old, but gives a good idea of the kind of madness you can expect. Jump on Fry’s Discord and join the voice chat with myself and other players, and get notified about updates and live streams.
Here’s a partial list of mods it’s currently running:

Phew… and it’s not easy getting all of them to play together! I’ve done a few streams on Fry’s Acid Test Twitch, and I’d appreciate a sub over there if you’d like to see more of them.
Thanks for playing!
