Black Squad is an FPS game developed and published by VALOFE. Although it is a multiplayer-only game, it can nonetheless offer many hours of entertainment thanks to its engaging and varied gameplay.
While the gameplay formula itself will not change no matter what – you will always need to point your gun at the enemy and shoot – this can be done in many different ways. Shooting with a sniper rifle is rather different from shooting with a shotgun. And there are other options as well, like pistols, rifles, and submachine guns. With more than 85 weapons available, every gamer will be able to find something that fits their style.
The overall objective you’re trying to accomplish will also change; that depends on the game mode. These range from tried-and-true options like team deathmatch, to more modern modes like clan wars. And because Black Squad allows the players to customize the game’s rules, even the same game mode can deliver different experiences.
Unfortunately, this intriguing shooter supports only Microsoft Windows. But this is not an obstacle if you’re determined to enjoy this game. Read the guide below and learn how to play Black Squad on Mac as well.

Play Black Squad on Mac with Parallels
Black Squad requires lots of PC resources, but if you have a powerful Mac computer (iMac, iMac Pro, or Mac Pro) Parallels Desktop can be a solution. This is an application that allows for Windows virtualization on Mac with the full support of DirectX and GPUs. In simpler terms, what this means is that it allows you to install Windows 10 on Mac with just a couple of clicks and switch between MacOS and Windows instantly. So you will be able to run Windows, install Steam (or Epic Games Store), and enjoy the Black Squad game on Mac just like on a regular PC.
Please note that not all games are supported by Parallels. Several conditions must be met for the game to be playable.
Your Mac must exceed minimum system requirements for the game; meeting them is not enough. Generally speaking, you will need an iMac Pro or a Mac Pro to run demanding games. Some MacBook Pro and iMac models are also suitable; they must have an Intel processor, a discrete graphics card and at least 16 GB of RAM. If your Mac has an Apple Silicon chip (such as M1 or M2), you may experience issues playing modern games.
Games that require DirectX 12 are currently not supported by Parallels.
AppsOnMac recommends using Parallels’ free trial feature to determine whether you can run the game or not if you’re uncertain.
Play Black Squad on Mac with Cloud Gaming services
If you have an old Mac or it cannot satisfy the Black Squad game system requirements, there is an easy solution. Cloud gaming services will be happy to provide you with sufficient computing power – though not for free, of course. All you need is a browser or a small client program and a good internet connection starting from 15 MBit/s. There are several great platforms that provide these services, among the best are Boosteroid, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, and Nvidia GeForce Now.
As Boosteroid has Black Squad in its game library, it is an excellent choice for these seeking to try the game out.
Play Black Squad on Mac with BootCamp
Note: Mac computers with new Apple Silicon (M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max) currently do not support BootCamp. In this case, please, use the options above to run Black Squad on Mac
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, you can play Black Squad on Mac by installing Windows. You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. This is an application that allows users to choose the system to work in on startup, however, you won’t be able to switch between systems like in Parallels. You will need to reboot your machine every time you want to switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, in the end. And while newer Macs have their own special Apple Silicon chips that cannot run Windows, older Macs are very much similar to computers that run Windows, they have Intel processors, compatible RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on an older Mac by allocating no less than 64 GB of disk space (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games) and following these steps:
For OS X El Capitan 10.11 and older
For MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create a bootable Windows USB.
- Download this Windows ISO file.
- Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities).
- Define the Windows partition size and choose the Windows ISO file you’ve downloaded.
- Format the Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps.
- When Windows boots for the first time follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
