Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II boasts a unique three-team symmetry and a myriad of colorful characters to promote exciting, strategic, and fun gameplay. It features several game modes, each requiring its own special brand of cunning to master. Do battle on a tropical island for control of bountiful treasure. Appease your gods by spilling the blood of your enemies deep within a Mayan temple. Conquer your foes by taking control of precious badlands
territory. But most importantly, have FUN!

  • Three teams with 9 unique player classes
  • Fun, skill-based combat
  • Swords, axes, guns, and explosives
  • Unique voice acting for every character
  • A variety of gorgeous levels
  • Whimsical and challenging achievements
  • Command-able attack parrots
  • 100% FREE!

Unique Combat System:
The combat system is something you will not find in other games. Melee is based off of directional charged attacks and blocks,
far from the usual click and slash method found in most games. Each class has their own set of unique weapons
(When we say unique, picture a trained attack parrot) and play styles, as well as class specific special attacks that can be
unleashed once the meter is filled.

Multiple Game Modes:
Each map features a game mode that you'll find both unique and entertaining. Game modes include Booty, Trinket Wars, Last Team Standing, Territory, Objective Push and Team Deathmatch. Many more are planned for future releases.

Each team sports its own set of unique classes. Each class offers its own play style and is most effective in different situations.
Altogether we have 18 unique classes planned, 6 for each team!
If you enjoy getting together with people and having an exhilarating time, Pirates, Vikings and Knights II should be top on your list of mods to try!

Bots are already implemented. But, as far as I know, there are only certain commands to execute on the bots - no real "AI".


Since TF2 is free2play, PVKII is too. Everyone is able to install it directly via Steam.

I hope I've been of any help to you!

Stupid question but, will this work with Tf2? I mean, it uses the source engine, too.

From the Wiki:

one thing i hate about this mod is that the pirates on bt_island have a vastly superior base. they can just light their kegs, shoot you with guns and then cut u with their swords BEFORE you even reach their chests.

and there is no point in simply killing them, they spawn right after dying.

I don't agree . When pirates have most chests the vikings attack from one side and bring the melee to the small island while the archers from the other side shower them with arrows... It's quite open.

Highest Rated (9 agree) 10/10

It's fast, frantic, fun and it's on Steam. One of the most unique and entertaining mods on the Source engine to date! Unlike the average melee weapon in Source games, that basically behave as a gun with a very short range, PVK II boasts a fully fledged melee weapon system. The direction of your swing actually matters and can be blocked by a proper parry in the right direction. If you swing a large weapon around, you can hit multiple targets in a single hit. PVK II also has a very interesting set…

After steam release, this mod is no longer acceptable.
