Call Of Duty 2 is the next game in the amazing Call Of Duty series due to be released around November 2005. The Demo, featuring one Single Player mission was released on September 26th, 2005 and shows off some of the great new features which we can look forward to using more in depth later this year. I'll quickly go over the new features in the demo, just in case some people haven't quite picked up on them yet. Well, firstly, you should read the readme which comes with the demo, that's straight from the developers mouth about what's new and stuff, but I'll go over it here in perhaps a bit more detail. • New Health System Call Of Duty 2 doesn't keep the health system from the original games. Instead of having a set value of health which you will lose or replenish with health packs, this time you have no indication of your current health. This may seem strange at first, however once you get used to it, it's really quite simple. To put it in it's most basic form, you have "infinite health". You won't die by getting shot multiple times, even without picking up health packs. Instead, you die from taking a lot of damage in a small amount of time. When you get hit hard, an indicator will appear on the screen, and you'll feel your heart rate increasing and so on. During this time you need to find some cover and rest. Stay safe for about five seconds or so and you'll regain your health and be good to go. Because of this, you could take hundreds of hits throughout missions, but if you stay in cover and heal yourself enough, you can make it through without dying. Not really the most realistic feature that could have been added, but it certainly changes the way you need to play the game. Running and gunning will usually easily get you killed. You need to go slowly. • Mantle System CoD2 gives you the option to jump over / onto small obstacles in front of you in a sort of scripted event. Sometimes you can't jump high enough, or the game just won't let you jump over certain things, but if you stand next to an object and you see a small curved arrow symbol type thing, then pushing the jump key will allow you to climb over it. • Grenade Indicator When an enemy, or even an allied grenade is thrown near you, an indicator will appear on the screen showing you which direction it's located in. Always make sure you find cover in the opposite direction of the arrow unless you want to be blown up. • Ammo Display Along with many of the on screen displays, the ammo display will fade after a few seconds if you're not using your gun. To see how much ammo you have in your gun and to bring up the display, simply press the reload button. Other than that, everything else is more or less the same as the old games so anyone with CoD experience should be able to manage. Have fun with the demo anyway, and I'll most likely be writing a full game guide when CoD2 is released in a few weeks time. Enjoy. =============================================================================== ___ _ ___ _ | __| | | \ __ _| |__ __ _ | _|| | | |) / _` | '_ \/ _` | |___|_| |___/\__,_|_.__/\__,_| Demo Mission: El Daba ============= D E T A I L S ============= "The End of the Beginning" El Daba, Egypt November 6, 1942 Near the Mediterranean Coast =============================== S T A R T I N G W E A P O N S =============================== • Lee-Enfield • Thompson Sub Machine Gun • Binoculars • 4 Frag Grenades • 4 Smoke Grenades =================== O B J E C T I V E S =================== • Eliminate the German naval artillery crews at the docks. • Signal the fleet from the com station radio. • Search the German HQ for printed dispatches. • Regroup at the docks to debrief with Cpt. Price. ===================================== M I S S I O N W A L K T H R O U G H ===================================== Following the short truck ride into the city, immediately jump off the back or sides of the vehicle and take cover from the MG42 fire coming from the windows up ahead. Once you've caught your breath, run across in front of the MG's and take cover behind the building on the right. Follow your squad around to the right hand side and head towards the other end of the street. You'll come across about ten Germans behind some sandbags and barrels at the far wall. Take cover behind any of the objects scattered around and use your Lee-Enfield to carefully pick them off one by one. After you kill the first three or four, another five or so will rush down from a room at the end of the street and take up their positions. Try to move in a bit closer, get a grenade in their location and then move in with your Thompson and clear it out. Take cover behind the sandbags where the Germans were and carefully lean around the boxes and look to the right. You'll see two or three Germans by the MG42 on the floor just around the corner alongside the center building, and two or three others behind the wall at the other end of the street. There'll also be one German on the balcony next to the window MG gunner. Help your squad take them out and then proceed towards the open building right below the window MG42 gunners. As you reach it, one of your team mates will take out the gunner. Head through the first room and along the small corridor. Carefully lean out of the doorway and prepare to shoot at a proned MG42 gunner lying directly in front of you. Take him out then you'll see two more Germans, one on each side of him. They'll most likely throw grenades as you, so retreat back to the other end of the corridor until they explode, then lean back out the door and pick them off. Head through the alleyways and stop as you reach a corner with a view of the ocean. The German artillery can be found here, along with a large number of their soldiers. Let your squad catch up with you, then start shooting at the Germans manning the Flak guns. Be aware of the riflemen on the roof and on the balconies to the right and ensure you take them out before they do likewise. Once you've cleared the first Flak, move up to the right and take cover against the corner, behind the stack of crates. Lean out and fire off a few rifle shots at the many Germans in the distance. Try shooting the red barrels which will explode taking out a few of them at once. Keep up the fire and help your squad pick off every last German. Once they appear to be all gone, move up and along the dock area. As you get towards the end one of your team mates will shout out to throw some smoke, don't worry, someone else will take care of it for you, but you may need to get your rifle and aim at the MG42 gunner on the roof of the German building. Once he's been taken care of, move along to the end of the area and go through the opening on the right. Depending how quickly you've gotten this far, there may or may not be Germans waiting for you. Either way you're going to have to kill them. There might be one or two coming through the opening as you get there, one just inside to the left, or possibly two to the right of the opening, maybe with a planted MG42 on a table. If you got there a bit faster, the Germans probably won't have gotten into positions yet, so quickly rush in and keep to the right. Head around the far corner of the building with the two tunnel type things, straight ahead of your entrance to the area, and you might have a nice surprise with four or so Germans heading straight for you. Make sure you've got an auto and spray them until they're all gone, then make your way towards the main German building. Enter the bottom floor and make your way to the right into the small back room. Depending on how long your squad have been fighting the Germans, there may be one or two still alive down here, so be careful and if you see any, take them out. As you approach the stairs another German will make his way down, but you should have no problem taking care of him with a Thompson. Head up the stairs and around, ensuring there are no more enemies left alive, then push action on the radio as your squad marks the target with smoke and watch the fireworks. After that, head back downstairs and make your way back past the "tunnel building". You'll find members of your squad pinned down by MG42 gunners. Feel free to try and take them out with your rifle, however from what I've seen, they'll just keep on respawning anyway. Head through the gate to the left of the area and watch as one of your squad mates gets splattered by a good few hundred German bullets. Just after the last bit of door comes flying off, crouch down and lean / strafe into the doorway with a Thompson or another fully automatic weapon. Spray the three Germans in there before they realise you're attempting to come in. There'll usually be one right in front of the entrance, one to the left, and a guy on an MG42 at the back of the room, also in-line with the entrance. After disposing of them, continue through the back alleyway and head up the steps into the next room. There'll be two Germans in here, one of which should be easy to kill, the other will be around the corner and will be preparing to throw a grenade at you. Do whatever you need to do to take out these two Germans then carefully make your way to the blown out wall. Below you are two Germans on MG42's, but you also have three Germans in the building opposite, one on the roof of the building just left of that, and one or two on the balcony of the building to the left of yours. I'd suggest using a rifle and carefully picking off the German riflemen who are situated in various positions around the aforementioned buildings. There's one on the balcony directly opposite, one on the roof and one in the far right window. Take out those and the other few Germans mentioned before, then use a grenade or machine gun to clear out the MG42 gunners. Make your way into the German headquarters building and approach the stairs, killing the two guards inside watching the entrance. As you get there, a German will usually make his way down so kill him, then cautiously make your way up the stairs. Before you get half way, turn around and climb them backwards, a German will be waiting with a rifle for you, so take him out as soon as you get a chance. I'd then suggest throwing a grenade into that end of the room, before actually entering it as there are two Germans behind a table ready to gun you down. Make sure they're both dead, then grab the documents and make your way out of the building. Jump on the MG42 in the sand-bagged area and use it to clear out the five or so Germans who are trying a counter attack, they should be disposed of no problem. Next just head through the gate to the left and follow the alleyway until you meet up with more members of your squad. When you hear that "this building is secure", you're safe, so follow them up the stairs and off the balcony where you'll meet up with the Captain and complete the objective. =============================================================================== W E A P O N S O F T H E D E M O There is a fairly decent selection of weapons which can be used in the demo of Call Of Duty 2. All of these weapons have been available in previous games, however they have all been re-modelled and re-skinned looking much better than before. Below is a list of the weapons in the demo and how you can get your hands on them. The way the weapon categories work is rather simple. You can carry two guns, two different types of grenades (smoke and fragmentation) and binoculars. There is no 'weapon size' system in the demo however, so picking up a pistol will take up the same slot space as carrying a rifle or machine gun. Unlike in CoD and CoD:UO you no longer have a pistol as a side arm weapon, you need to make the choice of whether to use a pistol and one main weapon, or just take two main weapons. Not really much of a choice if I'm honest. Large gaming sites have claimed that in the final build of the full game you will have a sidearm and two main weapons however, so this looks to be the same as it always was. • Thompson Magazine Capacity: 20 Total Ammunition Limit: 280 (+20) Special Features: Semi/Full Auto Fire Modes Standard weapon, you start with this gun and will be able to pick up additional ammunition from fallen team mates. • Lee Enfield Magazine Capacity: 10 Total Ammunition Limit: 100 (+10) Special Features: Can only be reloaded after 5 shots have been fired. Standard weapon, you start with this gun and will be able to pick up additional ammunition from fallen team mates. • Binoculars Magazine Capacity: N/A Total Ammunition Limit: N/A Special Features: Can be used to help you aim more precisely. Standard item, you start with these and can use them by pushing your "Binoculars" key which you can define in the game options. • MK1 Fragmentation Grenade Magazine Capacity: N/A Total Ammunition Limit: 4 Special Features: N/A Standard grenade, you start with these grenades and once they're gone, that's it, you can't find these ones anywhere else. • Stielhandgranate Magazine Capacity: N/A Total Ammunition Limit: 4 Special Features: N/A One in every ten or so Germans will usually drop a small bag full of Stielhandgranates which can be used to refill your grenade ammunition. • Smoke Grenade Magazine Capacity: N/A Total Ammunition Limit: 4 Special Features: N/A Standard grenade, you start with these grenades and once they're gone, that's it. • MP40 Magazine Capacity: 32 Total Ammunition Limit: 192 (+32) Special Features: N/A Probably half of the Germans in the mission have MP40's, down a few and you should be able to grab one. • Kar98k Magazine Capacity: 5 Total Ammunition Limit: 100 (+5) Special Features: N/A The other half of the enemies have Kar98k's. These guys are usually in harder to reach positions, but you still shouldn't have a problem getting your hands on one. • Luger Magazine Capacity: 8 Total Ammunition Limit: 48 (+8) Special Features: N/A Every so often you'll shoot a German who doesn't die, but lies on his back firing random shots at you with his Luger, kill him now and he'll drop it for you. • Bren LMG Magazine Capacity: 30 Total Ammunition Limit: 270 (+30) Special Features: Makes a very useful automatic rifle if aiming down the sight. The Bren is carried by a very small number of your team mates. One in every twenty or so soldiers is my guess. You'll need to be lucky to find one next to a dead team mate. • MG42 Magazine Capacity: N/A Total Ammunition Limit: N/A Special Features: Infinite ammo. The MG42 is fixed in position in various places throughout the level, you can't really miss them. =============================================================================== D E M O E X P L O I T S Along with the regular playing of the Call Of Duty games, one of the other things I like to do is look for exploits in both the single and multiplayer maps. I'll define exploit by saying it's doing something in the map that lets you get somewhere or do something you're not supposed to. This could be something as simple as jumping on a few random walls to get access to a hard to reach rooftop, or something as bad as finding a bush or wall that allows you to shoot or even see through it. Multiplayer exploits are a problem once people find them out as they can create an unfair advantage for players who know how to get behind the map or whatever, but as far as I can see it, the best way for these problems to get fixed is for them to be brought to the attention of the game developers. I never release any multiplayer exploits I find, and never use them in public servers. The following small section contains the few exploits that I have been able to find in the demo, and how to do them. Exploit 1: Getting On The Truck After the truck ride into the city, dispose of all of the enemies and approach the MG Gunner building until he is killed. Once you hear "Area Secure!", move back around to the truck. If you move to the back end of the truck you'll notice you can climb onto it using the new Mantle feature. Feel free to try it out here, however if you walk to the side of the truck and double tap jump, you'll be able to jump up, then pull yourself over this way. The exploit can be done by heading to the back-left side of the truck. Instead of using the Mantle feature to pull yourself onto the back of the truck, make sure you're directly level and facing with the side of the truck. Jump up and then hit jump again and you should be able to pull yourself onto the back of the truck, only you'll actually pull yourself onto the top part of the truck rather than the lower back section. If you do it right, you will then be able to walk around on top of the truck. Not exactly much of an exploit, but you can't normally get on top of the truck, so it does what I explained an exploit was in the introduction. This exploit can also be done on the truck parked just before the Flak guns at the harbor section of the level.

Instead of going in the door and fighting your way up the stairs to grab the documents, jump on the sand bags to the right of the entrance in the small closing alleyway type thing. Walk right along the top of the sandbags right to the end, then take half a step back along to the left. Jump up and aim at the window. Mash the jump button when you're in the air, and if you hit it right, you'll pull yourself up onto the top balcony and there'll be no Germans in sight. Just go through the window or door and grab the docs and you cut about 5 Germans out of your mission. Once again nothing too special, but it's another exploit.
