[Top 15] Garry's Mod Best Horror Maps

Garry's Mod Best Horror Maps
Hippity hoppity your heart is now my property!

What are the top-notch horror maps that will make you cry?

God knows I had to change my diaper after playing some of these maps - I’d like to introduce you guys and gals to extremely spooky, horror maps in Gmod. Get your teddy bears and diapers ready!

Source engine makes the environments and surroundings in Gmod very… eerie? Leaves you with the paranoia of something popping up in your face at any second, thus combining this with horror maps made by the Gmod community makes quite a deadly concoction of tears and soiled pants. Let’s get into it:

15. Nightmare House

*stalker screams*

It’s always wise to start with something short and simple - your car dies at the gates of some mysterious mansion, you don’t have a cellphone so you’re left with asking for help.

Of course, as soon as you enter the garden the gate closes and you’re screwed. The map is fun - forces you to fight, so it’s not just boring exploration, but most importantly - it has jumpscares, so prepare to be spooked!

What’s great about this map:

●The map doesn’t rely too much on jumpscares

●If you’re not experienced with horror maps, this one is a great starter

●The playthrough is pretty straightforward, with no difficult puzzles.

14. Never Lose Hope Hospital

Map with huge potential.

This map is spooky. But it’s not a horror map that you can finish - it’s a sandbox map. What’s great though, is that this map has huge potential for horrorRP, the map is vast, has plenty of cool visuals, and a creepy as hell atmosphere at all times - there’s pretty much never a place where you feel comfortable.

What’s great about this map:

●The map works well with multiple gamemodes(Murder, TTT, custom horror servers, etc)

●Has its own background sound space

●Useful for making cinematics

13. My Nightmare

Hold that lantern tight.

You wanna know what’s my nightmare? Being forced to play Roblox.

But let’s keep it to the map - You enter a strange place and you kick yourself in the buttocks by turning off the lights. You’ll be trying to escape the nightmare with limited resources and your trolling friends.

What’s great about this map:

●The map gives you a lantern to hold(can create funny moments while ‘’sharing’’ it with your ‘’friends’’)

●The map has simple puzzles(Perfect for a brainlet like me)

●The map has checkpoints(Useful if your friend decides to shoot you in the face with a .357)

12. Horror: The Underground

Trains and stuff.

Well, this is not the greatest map, but hell, I loved the beginning and some ideas throughout the map were outstanding. This map doesn’t require multiple players to finish, but it’s recommended to have a few laughs. Besides that, it can catch you off guard and spook you!

What’s great about this map:

●Impressive map design

●Ending with a twist

●You can pick and befriend your favorite headcrab!

11. Night House of Horrors

Minecraft simulator

If you’re a fan of cheap, but effective jumpscares - then this map is for you. Besides, you’re gonna have a bunch of laughs with your friends. The plot is simple - you’re in a dream state of mind, disoriented and spooked - instead of hiding in a cupboard, you’re forced to discover the horrible events that unfold in the… Night House of Terrors.

What’s great about this map:

●The creator did a great job of hiding pathways

●Plenty of jumping puzzles

●Kinder surprise crate

10. Night House of Horrors 2

With a vortigaunt to keep you company.

Better than the first part, visually the map has improved and surely deserves at least the 10th spot! The plot: You’re a lazy piece of shieeeet and decided to sleep on your watch as a security guard in some facility. You wake up with no way of communicating with your colleagues, thus you decide to venture out and face the horrors. Less scary with friends, more scary when playing alone. 

What’s great about this map:

●The creator did a great job of making a creepy atmosphere

●Fun puzzles

●The map takes around 20 to 30 minutes, pretty lengthy

9. The Last Patients

Why is it always hospitals?

Well, here we go again, another spooky map, another pantaloons to soil - you wake up in a desolated hospital after suffering from some injury. What intrigues me the most is that this is the authors first map and it’s very well done. Has a few jumpscares, but also an atmosphere that makes you feel unsettled.

What’s great about this map: 

●As mentioned above, cool design and atmosphere.

●The map is pretty long, +40 mins

●Checkpoints are necessary in long maps and the creator included them

8. Hell on Earth

Better baby dolls than actual babies... 

When you decide to play this map, soon enough you’re gonna notice this maps weird obsession with babies. I don’t know what the author wanted to say, but the map is pretty good for my taste. A spooky moment here, a fun puzzle there with cool mechanics. Good map!

What’s great about this map:

●Cool map mechanics

●There is some voice acting

●Clusterduck ending

7. Necrophobia 3

El classico.

Its a 6 years old map, but I remember playing this map like it was yesterday - In total there are 3 parts and I had difficulties picking which one was the best, so after 5 million years I picked Necrophobia III. It’s a fun medium length map with a lot of original content.

What’s great about this map: 

●Exploding enemies

●Has its own cutscenes

●You don’t need any additional content to play this map

6. Hells Island(Chapter 1&2)

A long spookfest!

Your cretin captain decided to shoot up a hole in the boat’s engine, but managed to dock at a mysterious island. Soon enough, you’ll find out that this place is deserted and finding gas might come up after fighting hordes of dangerous creatures. Both chapters are dope, they do a great job of combining the horror and action together.

Before you play - I suggest playing this map with a friend, there will be parts where you’ll require an additional player!

What’s great about this map:

●This map has collectibles(If thats your thang)

●Fairly difficult 2 boss fights

●Veryyyyyyy long

5. The Guests PART 1

Spooky vibes.

Hmmm. I was having difficulties whether to classify this map as a horror or an adventure, but it had a few jumpscares and was a bit halloween themed so.. oh well.

Although I only played the first part, I enjoyed it alot and made me feel like I was in Mario. Can’t wait to play the 2 other parts!

What’s great about this map: 

●A fun obstacle course

●Cool ending with a difficult boss fight

●Kickass soundtrack

4. gm_hide

Bring a supply of diapers!

In summary, this map made me crap myself - you’re given a ghost detector device thingy, with no option of defending yourself. You can only travel further and run away as soon as you hear beeping. Besides the excellent horror atmosphere, the map design is alright and the idea behind it is also decent.

What’s great about this map:

●Keeps you on guard at all times

●Gameplay can become intense in a split second

●The map is very challenging

3. gm_requiem

Requiem, not rectum.

Wow, this map is a delicious, but a small cake. No cheap jumpscares, will leave you with a feeling of being watched, has a short, but a very interesting plot and the level designs are just pure class. Quite inventive - a longer playthrough would definitely put this map in the first place. 

What’s great about this map:

●Top notch horror atmosphere

●Custom voice acting

●Interesting plot

2. Hell’s Prison

Action is coming!

You ended up in prison for who the hell knows what, but what’s clear is that inmates won’t be the problem. You’ll descend further into the unknown alone or with a friend and encounter endless fighting. As almost any Gmod horror map, this map has jumpscares as well. A truly good map, had a lot of fun playing it!

What’s great about this map:

●Besides horror aspects, this map becomes action packed after around 10 minutes

●Challenging boss fight

●Fun in this map becomes multiplied by 10000 if playing with friends

1. gm_hide_assembly


Yup, this is the scariest map I’ve ever played. The atmosphere is incredibly eerie, don’t think that this map will be any easy as well - it’s extremely challenging. You’re given a special device that will detect the presence of nearby ghosts(similar to the device in gm_hide) and you’ll have to solve puzzles. In summary, this is like gm_hide, but 3 times better. Truly a masterpiece!

What’s great about this map:

●In my opinion, the best atmosphere from all the horror maps I’ve ever played

●Custom voice acting

●Challenging gameplay

●Guaranteed heart attack!

These maps surely created memories. Some of them made me laugh, some of them made me impressed, but most importantly, some of them made me change my man diaper. I highly suggest playing maps mentioned above, they offer more than the horror itself, at times it can be the plot or the map design or many other things. Alright, thank you for reading this article and have fun! Love ya~~
