Information about Battlefield 2

Battlefield 2 (commonly abbreviated to BF2) is a computer game by the Swedish developer Digital Illusions, in which players fight in a modern battlefield, using modern weapon systems. Battlefield 2 is a first-person shooter with some strategy and RPG elements. During development, Trauma Studios contributed to the development of the game after it was acquired by Digital Illusions CE. BF2 is published by Electronic Arts as the third full game of the Battlefield series, released on Jun. 21, 2005 (12 years ago). The latest stable version is v1.41 which was released on Nov. 16th, 2006 (11 years ago) although there is a beta version of the game that has been pre-released.

Infantry classes:
In Battlefield 2, as with previous Battlefield titles, players are able to select from a variety of infantry classes. Each class of soldier is equipped with different weaponry appropriate to their role in the battle. Assault soldiers, for example, are general-purpose infantry with grenade-launcher equipped assault-rifles and extra armor, Medics carry first-aid equipment such as a field defibrillator, and Anti-Tank troopers are equipped with missiles which are effective against heavy armor.

Players are able to choose a class at the start of a match, or between dying and respawning once the match has begun. Players can also change their class by picking up a "kit" from the body of an incapacitated soldier, friendly or otherwise. Hence, an Assault soldier can become a Medic if they come across a fallen Medic. Possible player classes are Spec Ops, Sniper, Assault, Support, Engineer, Medic and Anti-Tank.

Heavy classes: Assault, Support, Anti-tank. They have heavy armor but lower stamina.
Light classes: Spec Ops, Sniper, Engineer, Medic. These classes have no armor, but are able to run for a long time.

This diversity between classes, along with their special abilities, provides many more tactical options than other popular shooters.

Within the infantry class, there are three support classes with special abilities. The engineer can repair with his wrench, the medic can revive with his defibrillator paddles and heal, the support can resupply ammunition with his ammo bags. These special abilities are helpful to other players. When one of the these three classes occupies a vehicle, nearby personnel and vehicles can be replenished, repaired or healed by being in close proximity.

Gameplay

Both player modes use the same maps and use Battlefield's conquest game mode. Single-player mode allows 16 computer controlled players, while Internet mode allows up to 64 players. Players can choose to play 3 factions, the United States Marine Corps, the People's Liberation Army, or the "Middle Eastern Coalition". Additional factions are playable through the expansion packs, such as the European Union.

A console branded version also exists for the Xbox, Xbox 360 and PS2), named Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Although they both share the same name and setting, they differ considerably in execution, content, and gameplay. In 2008 (9 years ago) another console version of the battlefield games was released for Xbox 360 and PS3, entitled Battlefield: Bad Company.

In Battlefield 2, players are divided into two opposing sides (which armies they represent is dependent upon the map). There are two key concepts in Battlefield 2: tickets and control points. Tickets represent an army's ability to reinforce their position on the battlefield; each team has only a limited supply of tickets, and each casualty on the battlefield reduces the number of available tickets. Control points represent key points on the map, and are represented by flags. Control points are Battlefield 2's spawn points, and one side possessing a significant majority of the control points puts pressure on the opposing side, resulting in a steady loss of tickets for the pressured side, regardless of casualties. A round ends when one team's tickets fall to zero, the round's timer ends, or if at any point a side holds no control points, and has no soldiers alive on the battlefield (meaning the side no longer has any effective presence on the battlefield).

Battlefield 2's two game modes are Conquest and Cooperative. The only difference between the two modes is that Cooperative includes computer controlled players, whilst Conquest allows only human players. Results from Cooperative mode do not count toward global player statistics.

Vehicles

There are many different types of vehicles playable in Battlefield 2. They are all based on real-life vehicles used by the militaries of different countries.

There are about 30 vehicles available for use ranging from main battle tanks such as the M1A2 Abrams to fast transports like the Desert Patrol Vehicle. In contrast to Battlefield 1942 (75 years ago) (3 walls), Battlefield 2 has only one purely water-based vehicle, the rigid-inflatable boat, however, the BTR-90, the MEC APC, can travel in water as well as the LAV-25 and the WZ 551, the USMC and PLA equivalents, respectively. The developers designed the game so that every vehicle would be weak to another type of vehicle, creating a situation similar to a game of rock-paper-scissors. For example, mobile anti-air was intended to effectively destroy helicopters, but are vulnerable against opposing tanks. Included within this relationship are stationary defenses such as light machine guns and anti-aircraft/TOW emplacements. The availability and number of certain vehicles are dependent on the map and its size as well as control points captured. Also, more vehicles become available to be used on the maps of expansion/booster packs. (see Maps). The USS Essex is the only naval ship featured in BF2, featuring two spawn points and aircraft spawn points, and is not drivable or destroyable, except for its Phalanx turrets (the placement of which does not resemble the Essex in real life).
