Find the URL for the workshop mod you are trying to force update. The string of numbers at the end is the unique mod ID.

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\393380, and delete the folder that shares the same mod ID as the mod you are trying to force update.

Downloading a Mod (Local)[edit | edit source]

Create the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Plugins\Mods directory, if it does not already exist.

Place the mod folder (which contains a Content folder, a <mod_name>.uplugin file, and a modinfo.smi file) into the above directory.

Playing a Mod[edit | edit source]

To play a mod without joining a server, click on the "Shooting Range" button at the top right of the Squad Main Menu. Once you are loaded in, hit the tilde button on your keyboard (default: ~), and type AdminChangeMap <mod_name_map_here>.

To play on a modded server, simply join the server in the Custom Servers browser.

If you attempt to join a server with a mod which you have not yet downloaded, you will see the error message "The following mods are missing".
