Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Guide
Unofficial Battlefield: Bad Company Guide by Mike Hazleton for SuperCheats.com
EA and DICE's sequel to the popular Battlefield Bad Company caused such unprecedented demand that the game's multiplayer servers could not handle the sheer volume of players in the weeks after launch. Thankfully that has all been addressed now, and a few pieces of downloadable content (DLC) have also been released. This guide aims to give an in depth walkthrough of both the single and multiplayer aspects of the game, covering all the maps, weapons and equipment on offer, as well as more general tips on play-style and tactics. In multiplayer, information on how to level up the quickest is provided, with full details on the pins, insignias, stars and achievements.
The singleplayer campaign is set over two distinct periods. One level, the pilot of this relatively short story mode, is based in autumn 1944. The rest of the game is in the present day, featuring the soldiers of B Company. You play as Preston Marlowe, the newest recruit to the squad, having completed the epic missions of the first game. On most levels there are M-COM Stations to destroy. For anyone who has played the multiplayer mode, these are the boxes from the Rush game mode, which are also hidden throughout the campaign as collectibles to unlock achievements and trophies. You can also find collectible weapons on every level, and each time you pick up a new gun, it is added to your personal stash – it can then be retrieved from any supply point.
The two collectibles sections in this single player guide refer to guns that you may not have picked up so far – getting them will tick them off on your collectible weapon screen and allow you to use them at supply drops. The game sometimes gives you one or two specifically to find on a level, but there are others too – these are marked here as ‘Other Collectibles’.
