Modding Free Weekend!

posted on July 23, 2019

Hey squaddies!

We’re happy to announce an upcoming free weekend to celebrate the release of Modding 2.0! From July 25th, 10 AM PDT through July 28th, 1 PM PDT. Squad will be 50% off, so those of you that have been telling us that you missed the Steam sale have another shot at a bargain too.

As part of the festivities, we’ll be highlighting these top-notch examples of what Squad modders can do. Look for them in the server browser with the rest of the licensed servers:

The Mods

Canadian Armed Forces MOD Defend the Dome Elvedalen Harju

We’ll also have some surprises along the way!

For Players


The above patch notes cover some of the most recent changes in Squad that are handy for new players and veterans alike!

One big part of Modding 2.0 is the ability to download mods while in-game. If you’re not sure if your favorite server is running a specific mod, go ahead and join — if they are, you’ll be prompted to install that mod by the game.

You can subscribe to mods through the Steam Workshop as usual, of course.

Should you want to uninstall a mod, you’ll want to visit the Workshop and “Unsubscribe” from that mod.

Helpful Resources


We’ve also got some basics to help start you off right!

With the launch of Alpha 15, we’ve included the first set of Squad tutorials! Be sure to access those via the main menu, unless you prefer a true trial by fire.

Questions about gameplay, vehicles, and how to play Squad can often be answered by the Squad Wiki.

If it’s not there, someone in the Official Community Discord server will surely know!

If you’re a Redditor, you’ll want to join the subreddit: r/JoinSquad.

Feel free to browse our forums for discussions, tips, and squadmates.

Be sure to see what our creative partners are up to as well. They’ve each been selected because they put a unique, entertaining spin on the world of Squad and you might even learn some tips!

Common issues can usually be addressed through the Squad support website, but we have a dedicated support team standing by to answer your emails: [email protected].

For Server Owners

Yup! You can run mods on your licensed server! If you use any of the above mods, you will appear as part of the default server list. (i.e., not a Custom Server.) There will also be an icon next to the server name to denote that it’s running modifications.

Naturally, this won’t impact the part of your agreement about running mods on a licensed server.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach us in the OWI Hosting Discord or email us at [email protected].

Offworld out.
