I installed steam through playonlinux(and installed wine) I opened up steam, downloaded Hawken, and tried running it. A little window will pop up saying "preparing to launch hawken" Then it'll close and nothing will happen. Am I doing something wrong? I want to get COD to work on linux also.

The sad truth is that you are very unlikely to get this game, or any Windows app, up and running on your Linux machine essentially because PlayOnLinux/WINE cannot contain all the proper runtime files partially due to copyright concerns and audits by Microsoft. –  Jebeld17 Apr 4 '14 at 4:35
