Multiplayer Matches

The OPU unofficial update allows for functioning multiplayer over the internet, and lets CD and GOG-based installs play with each other.

How do I connect with other players?

The easiest way to connect with other players is to join us on Discord, or IRC at #Outpost2 on QuakeNet. To quickly connect to Discord (or IRC) chat, you can head to our Webchat interface.

With the OPU update, port forwarding for direct TCP/IP connections can be handled automatically (provided that your router supports UPnP or NAT-PMP). In cases where port forwarding cannot be used or otherwise does not work, we recommend using a VLAN app such as Radmin VPN.

Sunday is our official 'Game Day'. You're much more likely to see active players seeking multiplayer matches on Sunday. You're also likely to see players on Friday evening through Saturday.
