It's alpha+!

Which means that there might be bugs and might even not be playable on your system/config. But for most people (±95%) it runs well. Ask around on Discord if you run into problems.

Minimum Requirements

CPU: Dual core 2.7ghz CPU & newer than 2010
GPU: GTX950 and up
RAM: 16 GB and up
Recommended: Install BAR on a SSD (4 GB free disc space)
We advise keeping at least 20GB of available space to accommodate the downloading of extra maps and storing replays and screenshots.

How to Play

1. Download the launcher

Download your preferred version of the installer. We strongly advise installing this on a SSD.

For Windows, choose User or System install. Make sure, on new updates, to select the same choice (User or System) as you did during install!

2. Run the launcher

Run the launcher (and if prompted, allow it to make connections), and click the big blue ''Update" button to start the update proces. This will download all latest assets and can take a while. The launcher will also restart if it got updates as well.

PS. We update the game multiple times per day. Eventually we will reduce this to once or twice a week, or for hot-fixes.
Click ''Update" » When ready click ''Play''

3. Start the game

After successful updates you can click ''Start". On your first launch you can register a new player account. Please fill in the credentials. E-mail needs to be entered and valid to play online. You will receive an activation e-mail. Also try to remember your password! :)


Download map-pack

Currently there's only a few maps included in the download. You can download our full map-pack, we also use on our servers. Unpack/download all map files (mapnames.sd7) into your game-folder:

  1. right click on the launcher » open install directory
  2. unpack to /maps


If you need to reinstall BAR (on Windows) » use the appropriate uninstall procedure.

Do a proper uninstall first

Do this through "add or remove programs" in the windows settings system. A new install will then work properly.
