Default SS2 Death match

I have been thinking of picking up a copy of SS2 seeing as I never gave it a try. The largest amount of fun I get from the the other SS titles that I own is the Deathmatch/Versus mode. How is the Death match in SS2? and does anyone still play it? Either way I think the game is worth having.

Multiplayer isn't that great.
The game suffers from a really bad netcode meaning that trying to play can be a hassle.

The game was rushed toward the end (or was it?) so I'm guessing that multiplayer was the last thing to be worked on.

For Croteam, Serious Sam has been all about singleplayer and co-op.

Yeah that makes absolute sense I am not surprised to hear you say that. I appreciate the info guys. It is only $10 on steam, i don't think I can go wrong at that price with a SS title.

The game lag a LOT online ! I have a dedicated server and it lag even if I'm on the same Internet connection. But lag is not very important in coop with 9999 life's and unlimited ammo

Nobody plays SS2 DM. Last time I checked, there are no servers for it.

There's usually at least a few Russians on co-op servers tho.

SS2's DM was thought to be pretty poor overall. I attempted to make a mod for it back in the day but that didn't get very popular either, but it's still miles better than vanilla with a variety of improvements (lots of new maps, balancing, voting, instagib, etc). If you have friends to play with you might want to give it a go:

Serious Sam 2 Deathmatch Pro

Ah yes I thought there was a Pro Mod of some sort for it, I will keep that in mind thanks.

There are sometimes only 1 or 2 servers online, but if you had no lag its normal like in UT or Quake, btw multiplayer is not dead & bad you found most of time some coop servers, sometimes even ones with 5/16, 8/16, 5/6.
A lot of russians still play it, even with low internet it still works fine, if you can play without lag.

Can someone tell me today a FPS with 42 levels in SP/CoOP and playtime arond 15 hours and healthpacks?

Today you get 6-8 hours of playtime in FPS, around 8-10 maps in MP, DLC's, no Mod Support (most time), Settings like Terrorists (Arabia or Russia) attacks USA and Tons of Scripts.

1.There are no ss2 deathmatch servers ( like squadala first said)
2.The co-op is great and all, it gets pretty fun when you play with 16 people, but the lag makes it unjoyable ...
3.The single player for me is amazing and it is the only reason i bought the game plus i wanted to try all the mods !
4.There is a lot of storyline in the game that shouldn't be missed !

PS: But if you are a guy like zeb ho plays only deathmatch i wouldn't recommend it ..

The SS2 Online component makes me want to shoot myself.

If you like mods, either enjoy playing them by yourself or get people together and play 'em. 'Cause that's all you can really do.

Yes serpents yard remade is a great map, but only Coop. And it's used converted FE & SE textures. Serious Mind you should try & Finzy's Scrappack too.
