    Battlefield Bad Company 2

    Post by Shek on Fri Jan 15, 2010 5:53 am

    Should totally make a spot for a BF thread area Razz.



    And here is some info on the beta for PC....

    BETA Details:
    Beta Begins/Ends
    Jan 28th/Feb 25th
    Map Name
    Port Valdez
    Players
    32
    Game Mode
    Rush
    Environment
    Snow

    Back Story
    The battle for Port Valdez is fought alongside the waterline towards
    a great oil industrial landscape in the Alaskan mountains. Using
    basically everything they've got the Russian forces are launching an
    airborne assault to knock out the oil industries in the area. In their
    arsenal there are Main Battle Tanks as well as fast-moving Quad Bikes
    and mobile armored AA. It's a vehicle focused battle, but with plenty
    of infantry combat.


    How to Download: Check back to the Battlefield Bad Company 2 for a new Beta Page closer to beta launch date for download instructions.
    How To Get Access: Reserve Battlefield Bad Company 2 is the
    most sure fire way, but we are still working with some other Retailers
    & e-Tailers that wish to participate. If you're eager to ensure you
    get in the two confirmed distributors to Pre-Order are the EA Store
    and at GameStop.com. We'll have another Blog at a later date with an
    update on the retailers & e-Tailers that have teamed up with us as
    well as alternate channels to obtain a Closed Beta Key.
    *NOTE: This promotion is with participating retailers only. Please
    check with your local retailers if PC Beta Code is available through
    their stores.

    From www.battlefield.com, just reading some of the stuff, seems like they love PC gamers Razz.

    Thanks for posting the information. I think I've read this elsewhere and am I understanding correctly that there will be only ONE map to play in the PC beta?

    Not sure if FFA would work, after watching a video about one of the devs talking about the spawn system, it seems to work like this..........

    You can pick your spawn, either at your Base, or at one of your teammates, which is just as it sounds, you spawn right on them, also the killcam doesn't actually give away your killer, but just shows who/where they are for a brief second.

    And remember guys, if you snipe, lead your shots in this game Razz.

    That was one th9ing that that really irritated me about the BF2 game. Every time you died, which was a lot in my case, you'd spawn back at the base and often the fight would be on the other side of the map.

    MP Demo for the 360 came today, had to put down Mass Effect 2 to play it (ALL OF YOU SHOULD BUY ME2!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    I like it more then MW2 (minus the fucking idiots I get on my, same as when I play MW2, too fucking stupid to cap/arm a bomb), had a nice little 5 kills in 10 second thing in a small room with a bomb, 4 of which were a knife, gave me a smile on my face Razz. Dunno if you guys are gonna have the same map as we do, we have this huge snow/port mapish.

    Btw do not use the shotgun when you play the demo/beta enough with the Assault class, thing sucks to hell.

    Sniper seems find with me, where are you aiming on their body? Remember the bullet drops in this game so you'll have to aim a bit higher to get a kill (I swear if you don't get a headshot you almost never get a kill Razz).

    And I blame IW/Trey for the whole "everytime I touch a game now, I find something I hate".

    Regarding the weakness of the weapons, I'm imagine/hope there will be a HC mode that can quickly clear that issue up. It is a beta one something we need to remember.

    Thanks for providing the insights and opinions, I haven't got a beta key yet so I'm relying on what y'all are sharing.

    yeak i think when the other maps and modes come out it should make a difference. if you join a squad you can spawn on them. if your smart you get 1 guy undercover near a target and just keep spawning off them

    This, me and a friend do this a lot and we just murder them in their spawn, more so the stupid snipers that keep running to the same spot, we repeat for the heli as well, can rank up some good kills if you have a good pilot and gunner. (I'm zee gunnerz).

    For me, the only weapons I hate are the engineer's, then again, engineer is just for tank control/repair mainly. The XM8 (something like that, 2nd assault rifle), you unlock kicks ass.
