From 1999 to 2001, Sierra released three different versions of SWAT 3. Each of those differing versions is related by a series of patches, specific to several different languages. This guide is designed to help understand which copy of SWAT 3 you currently have, and what you need to download and install in order to patch your game.

If you bought and downloaded your game from GOG.com you already have the most up to date version available and no patching is required.

  • either the original CD or box cover from your SWAT 3 game available
