Set during the American revolutionary war, the Battle Grounds is a Half-Life Modification where you and your teammates will need to fight together strategically in order to overcome the enemy forces.

In The Battle Grounds you can play as a soldier in one of two opposing armies:

  • The British Army
  • The Colonial Continental Army

For each team you will have a choice of several classes, all with their own individual style and unique characteristics.

good mod. Too bad the mod is dead :(

I also have problems like that when I play some maps the textures go blank and it becomes impossible to see, but if I change to D3D that texture error is removed even though the life bar and the blue bar remain still and do not go down.

Battlegrounds III has an official discord but I don't know of any for 1 or 2.
See link here for official Discord. Discordapp.com

Otherwise if you are interested in this or other Gold Source (GoldSrc, HL1, Half Life 1) mods or Source (Half Life 2, HL2) mods then feel free to join a new Discord that i've started for matchmaking. I'm trying to centralize and unite the multiplayer mod communities for all of the various multiplayer mods out there and we have a mod of the week we play every Friday and Saturday. Feel free to check us out.

Discord.gg

Let me know if you have any questions.
