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 remember playing this mod back in 2010 and its good to see that the developers are still updating the mod, however seems like there isn't many people playing at all. I'm still going to download this and play the hell out of it, good luck on the future of mod devs and I hope that this mod gets popular again within the year.

It will be popular again after 2.3 is green lighted, that is as long as '76 doesn't come back and troll new players.

We don't know about more weapons but they did speak of a newer tomahawk, and long pattern.

Are there anymore line battles or line battle servers? Are they also public or just private, between clans?

Public linebattles usually only happen when there are enough people and admins on a server, so they aren't scheduled. If you join a clan you'll probably be doing inter-clan matches often.

I have a problem... everytime I try to start the mod from Steam, it says "Failed to start game (missing executable)"

That probably means that you don't have the hl2.exe executable, meaning you didn't download source sdk base 2007.

I do have Source sdk base 2007, and I managed to start it by changing some strings in the gameinfo file... now it doesn't show any servers at all and when I try to start a map it crashes

Well if you change some things in the gameinfo.txt then that might make it so you don't see any servers, like Steam thinks you're playing a completely different game. What exactly did you change?

Sorry... I had a corrupt installation of Sdk base 2007, I'm redownloading it now. Anyway I used a fix that I found there ( Steamcommunity.com ), now I'm just going to reinstall Battle Grounds 2 and try again
