    Conclusion:
    Gunfighters ran great on my GeForce GTX 1060 in Mint. I was able to play against bots without any performance or graphical issues. Sometimes the bots would huddle in the spawn area and not move, but other than that, they are really hard. I was able to create an online game and my daughters were able to join after exiting the game and re-opening.
