HMS Defiance 2 is a single-player action mod for Half-Life 2.

Take the role of Stephen Cartwright, a mercenary onboard the HMS Defiance who finds himself sent on a mission that becomes stranger and stranger as it goes on.


Unique Locations - travel to the Library of All Knowledge, an old temple guarded by a fanatical cult; Gateway 16, a space habitat whose populace have mysteriously disappeared; and explore the HMS Defiance, a prototype warship built during the Second World War.

A Compelling Story - three vastly different locations connected by an over-arching story. You can delve deeper into the worlds, reading from the accounts of multiple characters, and discover each location's history.

Balanced Pacing - HMS Defiance 2 mixes moments of intense action, with time for rest and delving into the story.HMS Defiance 2

I couldn't find ammo, so I used givecurrentammo

I loved this, the story reminds me, for some reason, of Myst. I loved Myst's atmosphere and I love this games atmosphere. I do wish that the ending was expanded on, I was so excited to see what would happen in Transhuman processing. Will a 3rd ever exist?

I certainly left it open for a third! Hopefully some day, when I get the time to go back to it. :)

I give one star for trying and actually publishing.
How the hell can you make the models look so bad i thought i was fighting lego people at the library.

Also what the hell is up with that guy who orders you around? Why is he dressed up like a plague doctor? The gas masks models were terrible, should've just taken the masks from CS or something.

Also the gun's reloading animations are so weird too.

But, i give you credit for trying
