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.

You guys really need to add more weapons to the game, MUCH more.. They didnt just have brownbesses, french muskets, and jagers and pensylvania flintlocks. There were ducksfoot, blunderbusses, volley guns, double barreled muskets u name it. That would attract many more players to the game!!

They really have covered the primary weapons for the day. Weapons outside the ones ingame weren't extremely popular, and are fairly hard to document seeings as they were made by local gunsmiths. Many were cut down, reassembled, converted to percussion cap, or likewise murdurlized after, and even during the war. The only weapon I could see them missing is a blunderbus, but that's covered by the buck and ball infantry.

Duckfoots and blunderbusses were naval weapons and duckfoots weren't used all that much. Volley guns were also naval weapons but they weren't used much at all mostly because they were expensive and their recoil could break your clavicle. Double barreled muskets were not all too common, they were used by some irregular forces in Europe and perhaps maybe in some backwoods areas but none were used in the Revolution from my knowledge. They were somewhat of a novelty.

I think you guys should put it on steam green light because me and my friend were playing in a server where there were only 5 people but later 9 more people joined and we made a line battle with 14 people I think if you guys put it on steam green light it will have some full servers this mod has potential use that potential :)

We are definitely keeping the Steam Greenlight option in our minds as we look toward the future.

I won't commit to a specific time date, however I can say it will be soon. We will open up public testing soon as well, so we can iron out all the kinks before the full release.

finally found a couple of servers with players, was told to leave every server because of 'training' and not wanting to join clan. would like to see it greenlit so more players can get in and have more servers without being told to leave so the clan can train.

Uninstalling for now until it is distributed through steam and more players are active.

Yeah it really depends on the time... just later today we held a big public linebattle on the same server (I'm in that clan).

But yes, hopefully we can get the game on steam.
