Tribes 2 is the sequel to Starsiege: Tribes. Like its predecessor, it is a team-based first-person-shooter designed primarily for online multiplay. While getting kills certainly helps, the player must also achieve the various objectives specified in the scenario, ranging from attack-and-hold objective, to assaults on enemy fortresses, taking enemy flags, and more. Each member must weigh the trade-off between firepower and protection, as well how much ammo to carry. Tribes 2 adds vehicles to the mix, as well as a new race, and larger maps.

Weapons vary from the sniper laser rifle to chain guns to grenade launchers to the massive mortar. Tribes 2 adds three brand new weapons, including melee shock lance, missile launcher (used against the new air vehicles), and ELF gun (drains energy from target).

The game supports multiplayer over Sierra's WON.NET, which was also used for the multiplayer part of Half-Life.
