Now, its worth pointing out some basic Battlefield: Bad Company 2 tips, for the newer variety of player. Below is a simple list of seven things to either do or not do.

Battlefield: Bad Company Online Mode Tips

  • Check the radar - Perhaps the easiest thing to forget is that your radar will help create a projected image of the battlefield into your head. With it constantly being updated via sniper spots et al, it’s a necessary tool to use, unless you’re playing the hardcore mode that is.
  • Level up each of the classes - In order to unlock all the weapons in the Battlefield: Bad Company online mode, you will need to play through each of the four classes, gaining enough EXP to use all of them. Having this selection of items, upgrades & weapons is really helpful in becoming a malleable online player.
  • Use the sprint ability wisely - Knowing when to sprint & when to hold back on it is often key to surviving running the proverbial gauntlet. Just spamming the sprint button will invariably get you killed as it takes away the ability to shoot or look around.
  • Join a squad - Having the ability to spawn on teammates is crucial in modes where your team needs to hold a flag or set charges at a bomb point. Having teammates close to the action, that you can spawn on, helps to form a quicker & more responsive attack.
  • Deal with vehicles - Although the emphasis on vehicles is stripped down in comparison to earlier Battlefield games, there are still plenty of vehicles to both use & destroy. Manning an anti-air gun, applying C4 or using a tracer dart/RPG combination to take down tanks or helicopters will invariably put your team in the ascendency.
  • Utilise a dynamic play style - If you’re pinned down by an enemy vehicle, change your class and use the Engineer to have a better advantage against the problem. This dynamic changing can really help boost your score and allow you to perform well under any situation.
  • Stick & move - This applies to all classes but is most important for the Recon class. When killing an enemy, unless in a precarious position, it often best to relocate yourself to a new location. This will confuse enemies as they will never truly know where you may be lurking.
