Bad Company 2 Vietnam Weapons – Assault Class Rifles

Engineer Class Weapons

The Engineer class in Bad Company 2: Vietnam can be difficult to use, but with some good weapons tips and tricks, the Engineer can become quite dangerous.

The MAC10 is a fun weapon, offering high mobility to the Engineer, while also providing a large clip and a fast rate of fire.

  • Fire Rate – 900 rounds per second

  • Fire Rate – 900 rounds per second
  • Reload – 2.4 seconds
  • Clip Size – 32

Medic Class Weapons

The Medic in Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam has several weapons at his disposal. The tactics for the medic usually involve using powerful LMGs for cover before running in to revive the wounded.


The M60 is the most powerful LMG in Bad Company 2 Vietnam, but also makes moving around difficult due to its size. It has a very large clip size but a slow rate of fire, making it perfect for those who enjoy camping a specific area.

  • Damage – 16.7/20.2
  • Fire Rate – 550 rounds per second
  • Reload – 5.46 seconds
  • Clip Size – 100

The RPK is a great weapon not only in games like Modern Warfare2, but also in Bad Company 2: Vietnam. With a good rate of fire, decent damage and a high clip size, the RPK is a solid weapon.

  • Damage – 14/16.7
  • Fire Rate – 650 rounds per second
  • Reload – 3.64 seconds
  • Clip Size – 100

The last gun in the Medic section, the XM22 is a fantastic rifle for camping, due to its huge clip size and decent damage.

  • Damage – 14/16.7
  • Fire Rate – 800 rounds per second
  • Reload – 5.74 seconds
  • Clip Size – 200

Recon Class Weapons

Ah, everyone's favorite class, the Recon class, or sniper, is the only way to reliably get kills from across the map. Unfortunately, that means that the Recon class has almost no automatic weapons to choose from, and must rely on highly accurate but slow sniper rifles to do his job.

The M40 is the standard sniper rifle issued to new Recon recruits in Bad Company 2 Vietnam. A single action-bolt rifle, the M40 has excellent damage, good reload time, and is in general a good sniper weapon.

  • Damage -70/105
  • Fire Rate – 36 rounds per second
  • Reload – 2.8 seconds
  • Clip Size – 5

Russia's favorite sniper rifle, the SVD, also makes an appearance as a weapon in Bad Company 2 Vietnam. With good damage, clip size and rate of fire, the SVD is a venerable killing machine.

  • Damage – 28/39
  • Fire Rate – 260 rounds per second
  • Reload – 2.035 seconds
  • Clip Size – 10

Fortunately, Bad Company 2 Vietnam is a very balanced multiplayer experience, and true skills almost always win out over weapon selection. At least, thats what we all tell ourselves after being sniped for the 10th time in a row.
