Redneck Rampage: A Hog-Wild Adventure Through the Deep South


Prepare yourself for a rootin’-tootin’ good time with Redneck Rampage, a first-person shooter that’s as outrageous as it is entertaining. Released in 1997, this cult classic from Xatrix Entertainment transports you to the backwoods of Hickston, where you’ll step into the overalls of Bubba Ho-tep, a redneck on a mission to rescue his kidnapped kin.

Story and Setting:

The story of Redneck Rampage is as wacky as it gets. Bubba and his loyal hound, Daisy, crash-land their UFO in the desert after a wild night of alien abduction. With Bubba’s unwavering determination to return home to Hickston, you’ll embark on a hilarious journey through the Deep South, battling bizarre enemies and navigating treacherous environments.

Hickston is a caricature of rural America, complete with moonshine stills, monster truck rallies, and a brothel named “The Pink Pit.” The game’s levels are equally outlandish, ranging from a jackalope farm to a riverboat casino and even the depths of hell.


Redneck Rampage is a fast-paced FPS with a unique blend of action and humor. Bubba is armed with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, including shotguns, rocket launchers, and even a banjo that fires explosive notes. The enemies you’ll encounter are just as zany, from rabid raccoons to giant spiders and even Elvis impersonators.

The game features a variety of objectives, from rescuing hostages to defusing bombs. You’ll also collect power-ups and hidden items to enhance Bubba’s abilities and give you an edge in combat.


Bubba Ho-tep is the heart and soul of Redneck Rampage. He’s a stereotypical redneck with a thick Southern accent, a love for moonshine, and a knack for getting into trouble. Daisy, his loyal hound, is his constant companion, providing comic relief and occasionally assisting in combat.

Throughout your journey, you’ll meet a cast of equally colorful characters, including Bubba’s Uncle Jed, a moonshine-swilling patriarch; Billy Bob, a dim-witted but lovable hillbilly; and Jolene, the sultry owner of The Pink Pit.

Humor and Satire:

Redneck Rampage is known for its over-the-top humor and satirical take on Southern culture. The game is filled with tongue-in-cheek references, witty one-liners, and absurd situations that will have you chuckling throughout your adventure.

The game also pokes fun at redneck stereotypes, but it does so in a lighthearted and affectionate way. Redneck Rampage celebrates the unique charm and eccentricities of Southern culture while gently poking fun at its excesses.


Since its release, Redneck Rampage has gained a cult following among fans of FPS games and lovers of offbeat humor. The game’s unique blend of action, comedy, and Southern charm has made it a timeless classic.

In 2019, a remastered version of Redneck Rampage was released on, introducing the game to a new generation of gamers. The remaster features updated graphics and gameplay enhancements, but it retains the original game’s signature humor and charm.


Redneck Rampage is a game that defies categorization. It’s a first-person shooter, a comedy, a satire, and a celebration of Southern culture all rolled into one. With its over-the-top action, hilarious one-liners, and unforgettable characters, Redneck Rampage is a gaming experience that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

So grab your shotgun, crank up the moonshine, and get ready for a hog-wild adventure through the Deep South. Redneck Rampage is a game that will have you laughing, shooting, and saying “Y’all come back now, ya hear?” for years to come.
