Default HBB: Hardened by Battle - A PR like Squad MOD




Greetings fellow PR enthusiasts,

I want to bring a certain modification for Squad, that I recently played, to your Attention.

Hardened by Battle - HBB


To keep it short, HBB Mod plays around with Squad games mechanics with the objective to have a gameplay, closer to Project Reality. For example, suppression fire is much heavier and finally does its job. Rally points now work like in PR, smoke has been reworked and many other small changes.
I played HBB and can 100% say that this is the closest experience to Project Reality you can get, owning Squad.

Who is HBB for?
People who are disappointed with the vanilla experience Squad delivers and are looking for a deeper gameplay experience. Or a looking for a more PR-esque gameplay.

Where do I get HBB?
Via Steam workshop: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil...searchtext=hbb

Where can I play it?
The server runs 24/7, you can find it under custom browser in Squads main menu.

At the moment, play sessions are always on Sunday 21:00 GMT+1.

When you (and many others) are making threads like this. Put some actual gameplay in the OP - and no I won't go to any discord.

Wow, what a rude comment, reported to moderation. Click the link to steam workshop next time. There's a vid explaining all the futures. Fuken Sweeds.

I don't play Squad much but I just might join with some friends.

Thanks for your suggestion sweedensniiperr, I actually didn't thought of including video footage. Of course a person could do the 10-second research themself. Anyway...

Sadly, there are only a few clips on YT, which are not very expressive. Since the mod is still in its early phase and is still a bit unheard of. What I was planning to change a bit, by my post here on the forum.

HBB YT Channel

Fan made Trailer

Footage



Thank you, Nate, for bringing up the change notes.
