The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.

A mod is a modification of a game, so therefore a Source mod is a modification of a Source game (a game that runs on the Source engine, an engine created by Valve for use in their game Half-Life 2). You can buy Half-Life 2 on Steam. Once you've done that, you can download the Source SDK Base (2006 and/or 2007 versions) through Steam. When you download and play mods such as Battle Grounds 2, it will run through the Source SDK Base, which is basically the Source engine ready to be modded.

So when people say something is a Half-Life 2 mod, they usually mean a Source mod.

So do you need HL 2 game installed or just the SDK Base 2006/2007 installed? I have every HL 2 game there is but they're uninstalled at the moment and was wanting to save HD space.

You just need to install the source SDK 2007.

installing BG2 is very easy, here is a small rundown of how to download and install Battle Grounds 2.

1. First, download the file either from our direct mirror or by hitting the Download Now button on the ModDB download details.

ModDB download page for version 2.0:
direct link:

2. After the download has completed, start the .exe installer by double clicking on it. You will see an installation window popup. Complete the installation process. The installer will try to find the correct place to install BG2 to. It must be in Steam directory in the SourceMods subfolder (most often C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\) as bg2.

3. After the installation is complete, restart Steam. Battle Grounds 2 should now appear in your Steam games list.

If you have any problems, don't hesitate to register on our forums at and post your question there.
