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.

Hello all!

As you know we've been working on a big update for Battle Grounds, porting it over to the 2013 version of Source and including new features like swivel guns, graphical upgrades and a brand new main menu with a community news feed. Today we are announcing a small, upcoming patch for BG 2.2 which is the first step of rolling out this new content.

The goal of this patch is to try out the main menu and news feed, so that we can test it with the community and polish it for the eventual BG2 3.0 release on Source 2013. In addition to that we have made some long overdue bug-fixes and performance improvements for the current version as well as some extra goodies.

You can expect the new patch within the next week, so keep an eye out!

The main menu with news feed and community updates. With this feed the dev team will be able to post updates directly to the community. Additionally community leaders will be able to post their own updates on clan battles and special, community organized events.

A new and improved loading screen with tips and suggestions on game-play and game modes in the mod.

A long requested community feature is finally here. Information and stats on the many musket types in the game. These weapon cards list vital information like reload speed, accuracy and damage.

Also on offer is a new infantry uniform for the British regulars. Based on the coat facings of the 47th Lancashire regiment, this new coat brings the uniform options up to an equal number of three for both the British and the Americans.

Finally we have a game-play change to one of our maps, Bg_Trenton. This option allows rooftop access along a line of scaffolding, offering the prefect vantage point to rain down musket fire on the square below.

We hope you enjoy this small patch while you wait for the next major update, Battle Grounds 2 Version 3.0

Well that would be more likely to happen if the mod was more popular. So be sure to share it with all of your friends.

The one (huge) problem about multiplayer modifications is that they require a pretty big fan base to achieve their full potential, and they usually die quickly. Especially for an old game like half-life 2. Is it possible that you can make it bot compatible? That would surely extend the life of your mod.

this mod had made a great full potential...the sad thing is the it really came to die not to long ago...this mod used to get 32 on 32 people line battles but that got old and all but thats all people ask for...and well, the chances of the old days coming back are very slim.

some of the maps (if not all) actually kind of do work with bots. Just enable the cheats [sv_cheats 1] then use the [bot_add] command till you got the amount you want

I agree. Maybe if the melee combat was revamped, more people would be more willing to play. The guns have excellent feel but melee was the only frustrating and clunky aspect of the mod.
-crap, meant to replay to ghostuser above
