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.

I'd rather see a graphic overhaul than some deathcams to be honest, this is for now the only and biggest flaw of the mod, its graphics.

Maybe consider changing the player models in game? Also, change the voice commands from, "Present" to "Present Arms". Also replace some other ones for "Fire at will" and "March"

Also, would it be possible to make a line battle an actual game type? Besides reloading and firing in what direction you want, the players could have no control of movement, firing until ordered, or breaking formation. All of these could be ordered by the commander, and all these actions controlled by him alone. When I downloaded Battlegrounds, that's the exact way I thought it was going to be. Not a bad idea, aye?
