PVK Characters

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.
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!

DAWN OF BONDI UPDATE - PVKII Beta Update Changelog & Release Notes

Another Halloween; another PVKII update. Introducing the Viking Bondi! This update brings the 10th class to the game, combat and balance updates, visuals and more! Check out the trailer by AGSMA below!


  • The 10th Class, Viking Bondi
  • Class and Shield Balance Updates
  • Code Fixes and Updates
  • 15 Achievements



Please see below for a summarized changelog that details many of the changes in this release. Head over to our Bugs/Support Forums to report any issues.

Main Features:

The youngest of all the Viking classes, the Bondi, is a freeman who owns a land, proud of his farm, and is seasoned in the art of hunting.

A hunter, swift with his bow. Immense strength with his atlatl. And a piercing, precise, seax. A new range element unlike his elders in battle. He is less honorable a man for his lack of melee weapons, however his steadfast charm for hunting and gathering makes him an honorable story to his family. But his story is a quest of vengeance. His land is taken; his family murdered. And so he seeks to end the lives of those who attempt to take all he has left.

Hunter Rapid Fire. Use in the heat of battle, Bondi enters a euphoric hunter state to release multiple arrows in succession towards targets with piercing damage.

Voice and Music
Voiced by Franki “Hankshaw” Garpeman, a real life viking conquering the internet with his deep voice and sexy Nordic accent. Known for his voice work in the Elder Scrolls Renewal: Skywind project, Reficul, Crystals of Fate, and more recently, Quantum Replica.

Bondi Musical Theme by Dylan JDM

The Bondi is the culmination of countless hours of hard work from PVKII Developers, Authorized Creators, Beta Testers and Contributors, with significant efforts coming from: Corvalho, jRocket, Lord B, and our amazing coders and QA/testers!

Character Classes

  • Updated team balance for bondi update

  • Bondi Dismemberment

  • Can slice up ragdolls into gibs with gibs enabled with some limitations

  • Can now attack gibs and bounce them around with some limitations

  • MAA special no longer slows down movement during the warm-up phase

  • MAA can now get excited properly during his special with weapons other than his halberd

Shield Re-balance

  • Only fully charged shield bashes can stun

  • Cannot be stunned by shield bashes if blocking, but your block will be cancelled if it is fully charged

  • Reduced shield knockback to make sword counters more relevant

  • Slightly reduced shield bash hitbox to make bashing people behind you more difficult (a full fix will come at a later time)

Code Updates


  • Ragdoll lifetimes and limits can now be fully customized beyond player limit, or “Doom” style ragdolls that almost never go away

  • Misc. crash fixes and crash exploit fixes

  • Add “cold” damage option to trigger_hurt, which uses a blue fullscreen damage indicator instead of red

  • Fast weapon switch enabled by default

  • Powderkegs should now always be transmitted regardless of how far away they are as well as players holding them, which should fix the inaudible keg bug

  • Miscellaneous minor performance increases, particularly on player spawn

  • Weapons no longer block you from switching to other weapons (useful to the randomizer plugin where you for instance couldn’t switch between the Berserker’s bigaxe and Huscarl’s two handed axe)

  • Impulse 101 now really gives all weapons

  • Disabled team is now a ConVar “mp_disabledteam” which could be used for mods, to disable a team on any map, or enable a team on a map that has a disabled team

  • New “instant_trigger” entity for mappers/maphacks, a radius based trigger that doesn’t use a brush

  • Fix modified balance servers not being tagged as such in some cases

  • Remove damage dealt label from scoreboard as it’s not completely accurate

  • Remove redundant NAT warning

  • Minor updates to net_graph to show more information

  • Add cl_menumodels ConVar to disable models in the main menu (may be useful on Mac if you crash while joining a server sometimes)

  • Add server-side option to disable player sprays “sv_playerdecals” in case you don’t want players potentially posting adult content

  • Updates and fixes to MapHack scripting interface

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…
