Battlefield: Bad Company 2: List your best weapon, gadgets and attachments

By Updated on

So how are you finding Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at the moment? Do you consider yourself to be an expert already, or are you stuggling to get the best out of the deep weapon customization that is available?

Dont worry if you are, because as a fellow Bad Company 2 gamer out there, I know that the game can be very difficult as a beginner – but does get A LOT easier, once you have levelled up a bit and unlocked some of the beastly weapons.

For now, we want to know what setup works best for you. If you are a regular of the site, you’ll know we did a similar thread for Modern Warfare 2 – which we received a massive response with over 360 replies from you.

I’ll start by listing my favorite setup on the game. While I am currently levelling up the Recon (Sniper) class, I have to say that Medic is my favorite, and a great way to accumulate XP fast. Aside from healing and reviving my team mates, I use the M60 light machine gun with 4X scope (attachment), light marksman training (specialization), and quick reload as my vehicle attachment.

With this setup attached, I often get around 1000-2000xp minimum per round. As that gun is really effective and the most damaging out of the lot on Medic class.

Now its your turn. Think you have a better setup? Share it with others below.

    HARDCORE MODE BEST GUNS
    I have close to 3.0 kdr and always get 1st when I play.
    assualt-m14ebr c4 4xscope magnum ammo you can take on an entire infantry with this. unlimited c4. try for headshots with the m14.  the reddot seems to miss enemies more than the 4x scope.  magnum ammo makes this gun much more effective at range.  for extreme close engagment switching to pistol is a good idea because hipfire of this weapon is not as good as svu hipfire.
    medic xm8  or USAS lighweight or redot
    engineer m14ebr with 4x or pp2000 red dot. magnum ammo M2 tracer dart.  pp2000 is effective at all ranges with reddot unlike m14 redot.
    RECON -SVU Not many people use this weapon but in an experts hands this is the most deadly gun in the game.  use the scope that is already equipped.  at close range use doubletap hipfire to kill enemies instantly no need for ads.  a doubletap from this weapon beats a knife at close range. at medium and long range take headshots one bullet per kill.  this weapon destroys bolt action on hardcore.  you can take out 5 snipers in3 seconds at short or long range.  the weapon is silenced.  enemies will not see large bullet trail and will not hear you take shots.  the weapon has a short muzzle allowing you to aim out windows and around corners or hide in bushes better.  Do not fire more than 3 bullets per second because the weapon has a glitch and the bullets will not register if you fire the weapon too fast.  the weapon causes more damage than the m14 at long range but the m14 can be fired slightly faster at medium range.  the svu does not rely on magnum ammo as much as the m14.  the standard svu scope is great so lightweight can be equipped turning you into an ewok ninja of death. you can actually dodge bullets with lightweight on.

    You always have to go with M16A2 with red dot sight and magnum. I also go with the 40mm shotgun underneath.

  • Elizio99

  • Madgerman2013

    Either a m14ebr with 4x scope/magnum perks an c4 or switch with the m16a2 or m416 for assault, sniper is always the m95 12x scope, medic would be a shotgun of anykind, and engineer would be a m14 or shotgun, got to level 24 on that deal just using sniper then infantry,m24 is a good sniper rifle too

    VSS-RECON, mag ammo a must, default scope n extra clip for staying power, 4 in the head n u know their dead. alwase 4 single shots, rarly need 5 if opponent is using armor perk, never let it roll into full auto unless enemy is right on top of you. Rember, the time it took you to shoot n reload with a M95 bold coulda been better spent wasting 2 people side by side with 8 bulletts in rapid succession or 3 with 12…as far as bolt ide have to say the starter rifel M24 is fastest till u get the T88 then VSS.. m24 is a 50/50 weather u get em in one shot, and it really just depends on how much dmg your team mates have done to him prior or weather you snapped em with a headshot..everytime your eye leaves the scope, then the time spent reloading then the time reaquiring your target again, it adds up!

    ASSALT – G3 with mag ammo making it a 4 shot gun like the VSS, and it opens up your c 4 perk to do a little battlefield sculpting for your team knocking out potential obsticals before thay become a problem or a safehaven for the enemy, the iron sights on the G3 work better then any dot !! so now add a little spash dmg to your c 4 and get your team past any tank or chokepoint, c4 works great dropped down hills, rooftops n stuck on ceilings and a good proxcimity killer for a com box if you distance it right, thay spam faster then nades n have a much better kill raidus! too bad thay dont stick to the enemys helmets, let the bee run back to the nest/squad or tank, then BOOM!! but i suppose the bee would notice the extra weight strapped to his head:(                               

    RECON – primary – play it rite it will keep u alive – its a good one for your K/D ratio

    ASSULT – is your sucide bomber, good when other team flops out a aimbot, or thay r just a little toooo organized, mix it up a little take out their building and equipment or c4 a jerk from top of a building..

    Engineer – AWSOME chopper support    (mining, repairing) <– some funkey things goin on with this kit however, alota player abuse with the dart n shoot thingy…

    MEDIC – level up really fast, useing it is only time when your team getting raped becomes a dream come true, the ideal starter kit to get a few lvls n global guns unlocked, even more ideal pared up with a suecide bomber assult type, A cuz C4 usually kills the user as well as the enemy, but the enemy inmuch greater numbers if played to its strengths…

    as far as cod and bfbc2 compare (thay dont) thay have simularitys in some of the things improvised, even the same theams boom (headshot bi**ch) however the sandbox in bfbc2 is so much bigger and stratagy element is, well leaves so much room for so many other things to happen, forcing some to think before act..
    or even react in some cases (r u mad bro) :)))

    ve played cod, for me it would be like comparing a pokeyman card game where the player was left to draw in his own imaginary win scarnieo by staring at the picture on his card verses see it actually unfold befor your eyes… sure cod u shoot him, thay shoot you blam, blam, blam you shoot her again. a insufferble grind that goes to the person that knows n glitch that tiney little sandbox the best, a little of that applies to battlefield but COD doesnt leave much at all to chance with a vary limited variety of tools and space to use them in.. cod is missing tanks, mounted guns, jeeps, trucks, choppers, APC's,  distructable enviroments to rattle off a few. it would be freakin awsome if cod could compete. a better runner up would be GTA if thay would fix the damn chopper hitbox's n add distruction 2.0!!!   "nough said"  lol

  • JohnDL

    I roll with the recon class most of the time and I use the M24 with either a M1911 or a MP 443 and either the mortar or C4. and BTW I have the ultimate edition.

  • peter

    actually folks, i have done some testing and "calculations" (im not a nerd), and wat turns out to bethe most effective assault class is – XM8: 4x; Magnum Ammo; MP443(due to fast rate of fire and high power + large magazine which rivals most guns) orthe M16A2 with same set up.The XM8 doesthe highest damage per second of all rifles, two 3-shot bursts makes one dead man. (P.S.,the XM8 will shoot 3 shots in what seems like a single fire shot). as forthe other classes i feel that would be too much to type, for any class suggestions contact me, SwatKiller7.

  • stanley

    Assault – AN94 w/ 4x scope, MP443, 40mm grenade, and alt weapons
    Engineer – G3 w/ red-dot or 4x, RPG, tracer on heli maps or MP443, and alt weapons
    Recon – USAS w/ C4 and MP443. I only use this kit when my team is getting jacked by tanks at the spawn

    Still, sometimes I just like to whip my weiner out and run around the map shouting BANZAI! in the microphone. Usually that is good for at least a few points.

  • steve

    Love BC2. Only complaint is that some of the maps can be won too easily by good helicopter pilots (i'm looking at you, atacama). Here's what I normally roll with:

    Assault – I change it up on a whim between XM8, AUG, 416 AN-94 and M16, they are all pretty nice. Double grenades and magnum ammo as perks.

    Engineer – Hate all the damn engineer guns, usually role with G3 or a shotty depending on the map. AT mines or RPG with both explosive perks

    Medic – XM8 MG, double grenades and magnum ammo.

    Recon – VSS with a red dot and magnum ammo. This setup is a beast, motion mines and a gun that actually kills shit without sniping. Also works good with a shotty if its a tight map. But seriously, motion mines are addicting.

    For the vehicle perk, usually always ALT Weapons, found it to be the most noticeably effective.

  • NeoXtreme1

    IMO i think that mw2 shouldnt be compared to bfbc2 because its a completely different game, so people should just try and see what one they enjoy the most but i have had tons of fun with both….

    My Favourite class at the moment would have to be the recon class with a G3-light weight-magnum ammo-vechile alt.

  • Daniel

    Yes, MW2 got more sales, but BFBC2 got more dedicated gamers.. I just downloaded battlefield bad comapany 2.. after reaching 9th prestige for Modern Warfare 2. They are both excellent games. They both have their ups and downs. BF is focused on realism, and yes guys, the snipers are annoying but they should have 1 shot kills to the upper chest. MW2 is great for fast paced, quick and easy stuff. The Ak47 remains to be my favorite gun in that game, not only for power, but realism in the LOOK not the sound. I have yet to meet a game that LOOKS as REAL. ONLY for the AK47 or the M9 Pistol. I love quickscoping, but it gets out of hand sometimes… and Noobtubing?! REALLY?! Beat. Sooooooo beat

    oh yeah by the way did any of the patch affected m416? it kinda became useless now or is it just i dont know how to use it with the red dot sight, but with acog im good with it and im trying to be good with red dot sight.

  • [7thb]Prutser

    Assault | Close combat – M416 + Red dot and magnum ammo and 40mm Grenade launcher.
    Assault | Far Distance – M16A2 + 4x agog and Magnum ammo and 40mm Shotgun
    Assault | Owning 😉 – An94 Abakan + Red dot Magnum ammo and 40 mm Shotgun

    And other kits i dont use anymore because its fully leveled and not so much fun than Assault.

    assault: M16 with red dot

    Medic: XM8 LMG

    Recon : GOL 12x

  • elation station

    red dot is noobish. u should get used to iron sight cause u can pick valuable perk instead of red dot. for some weapons like an94 iron sight can be tough so 4x scope is tolerable.

    team play is crucial for bc2 but u should consider this is a shooter game so most enjoyable aspect is the killing. and if u wanna make some points u would need all the gold stars so if u got the talent go for killing.
    this setting all about kdr

    assault – xm8 pro(most stable fully automatic wep) – extra explosive pack for 40mm and 2 grenades

    engineer – pp2000(most accurate dont listen the stats) – mgnm am or explosive – with extra ammo or explosive

    medic – mg 3 or xm8 lmg – mgnm am/armor – lw pack

    recon – vss – mgnm am and extra ammo pack

    I'm at level 38, with Recon it matters whether you're defending or attacking, but I prefer shotguns…Neostead 2000 comb with 12 guage and mag ammo (mortar when defending, C4 when attacking…basically one shot, one kill stuff and with a little help from assult class, steady barrage of motion detectors.

  • Blackgaard

    I have a question: can you level up a classes items and weapons once your level 50?

    But beside that I like to use medic-MG36-the lightweight spec which makes you move faster(can't remember what it's called)-and magnum ammo-I don't use vehicles at all so I haven't even unlocked the first thing on vehicles

    Please answer my question!

    • elation station

      at 50 level there is nothing change. now is trying to have a good ranking and kdr. u got all the awards and make wep platinium. its for prestige

  • rob

    I mix and match depending on the map and the stage of the game but typically start as an engineer with ATMs and sprinkle these around as they stay until blown up
    I also like Alt weapons as it means the UAV has a .50 cal machine gun which is deadly if you fly around behind the enemy and get in close

    bad company 2 is the better game for someone who wants to work as a squad mate and really help the team.

    mw2 is more for the shoot em' up Rambo type of player. i personally play bc2

    assault: m416+4x scope+marksman training+ vehicle alternate warfare+mp443
    recon: m24+12x scope+mp443
    medic: t88 lmg+red dot scope+vehicle alternate warfare+mp443

    • DuFFi_SK

      I like recon with USAS-12 or 870MCS with ammo and "shotgun" upgrade (dont know the exact name). It is really enjoyable for me to use the motion mines combined with these shotguns and C4.
      When I am not in a mood for shotguns :) I use assault with STG-77 AUG and 443 GRACH or engineer with AKS-74 and RPG-7. I always use an alternative weapon upgrade for all vehicles.

  • bob

    engineer= ump45, rex revolver, rpg-at(mostly for blowing up buildings), Extra ammo upgrade, magnum ammo, extra vehicle armour
    assualt= m416 or m16a2 (if u dont have those, the first gun you get with normal sights is beast) , revolver or m1911, 40mm grenade launcher (smoke for rush attacking), Red dot, body armour and vehicle armour

  • Provost

    Most of the Vietnam add-on weapons are really nice. I've only had it for about a week and i've managed to get 2 gold stars with the M40, which hits extremely hard in squad death match.

  • COD = Epic Fail

    MW2 and other Call of Duty games sux, thats all. So shut the f.ck up about this rubbish game. Its just created for money.

    m1911
    the carl
    extra explosives

    mostly use the carl i got 12 kills with it one round and then 13 wit the scar i like the combo

  • Saiga Pro

    I use the Saiga on all classes with lightweight and sg upgrade so i can go all day.
    The Saiga is definitely the best gun. i use the mp412 as my secondary for long range enemies too. with the vehicles i use smoke for some quick getaways. Happy playing people.

  • Austin

    Hmm not many shotgunners here… well ya i use the NS 2000 with the rex, i can kill whoever i get near, and then pistol snipe anyone else, plus playing as a medic class, i can tear through anyone who gets on my squad, and revive em right away. All that plus magnum rounds just for the heck of it, and i quite enjoy myself.

  • NthaBUSCHEZ

    Best gun: Assault AN-94- you want the mmgm upgrade or whatever gives you the extra damage or body armor (this is the strongest gun IMO it doesnt really matter how you customize the assault loadout in this case), for engineer I stick with xm8 compact and put on the extra explosive and explosive upgrade, if its a tank heavy level, you might want to consider using this loadout with antitank mines. I use the first sniper rifle available in the recon class I believe its an m40 with a 12 x scope and mmgm I don't find I need the spotter scope because ANY class can spot by simply pressing the select button. you want to compliment your squad with whatever your using, medic is super strong and arguably the best class but if it makes sense strategically, I find the other classes to be more fun. BFBC2 vs. MW2 I think has to go to BF for shear scale of maps, diversity of class loadouts in terms of strategy ie. tanks, helis other vehics objective based play not to mention replay value- re-play value.

    /end rant

  • the fox

    assault deffinitely the hk or m416 + 4x scope + mnm aussault rifle training

  • Trevor

    Bfbc2 is one of the best games iv ever played it is wayyyyyyy more realistic that mw2. Mw2 was fun at the beginning but was to repetitive and was good till I got bfbc2. Overall bfbc2 is a much better game

    It's funny that people complain about how unrealistic bc2 is when they havn't played HARDCORE mode. In hardcore u practically die by 1 headshot, 2 shot in the chest, 1 sniper shot and so on. Unless its a really weak weapon you have then it takes a few more shot to kill someone but not by many.

    I believe each weapon has it pros and cons, some are better at medium range to long range and others are better in close combat to medium range. But if you master the highest output dmg weapon then it'll become the best weapon of choice. An example is AN-94 Abakan for the assault class, I've seen alot of people being a fan of the M416 but for me it's weaker than the XMB Prototype at burstfiring and handling.

    Here is my favorite setup with different kits.
    Assault KIT: An-94 / M16A2 / XMB, M1911, red dot / 4x, magnum upgrade, V-Armor or Warhead upg and this goes in other KITS as well.

    Medic KIT: M60 / MG36, M1911,
    M60 with red dot and mgm aim
    MG36 with all healing capable upg

    Engi KIT: Depends on map and game mode, if its hardcore then I wont pick up explosive upgrade and rockets.

    UMP / SCARL, M1911 / heatseeker pistol
    I usually pick RPG most of the time due to higher output dmg towards tanks, the M2 is weaker but better vs heli's and infantry.

  • Steven

    very sorry for a third comment but i left a few things out

    the m1 garand and the m14 are very nice guns m14 imo is better because u can put a sight on it but the garand is alot of fun

    and im sorry to say but there is 1 flaw not realy the game itself but some of the mw2 ppl who play it, they come on thinking u can run up and shoot shoot shoot plant and run away and that causes most losses (all i play is rush) u need to take your time revive your teamates or u lose all your tickets so that being said plz take your time and play as a team lol

  • Steven

    Well everyone has summed it up quite nicely but might as well put my 2 cents in. I love mw2 but it gets pretty boring after playing since it came out. BFBC2 is most deffinatly my favorite game i love the excitement of playing rush and your whole squad rushes up the sidelines pwning kids and sneak in to plant the bomb and defend realy gets my blood rushing.

  • Steven

    assault= i dnt play assault much
    medic= i play medic the most its a great class m60,m1911 or burst pistols are my fav defib, med kit range, med kit heal speed, vehicle armor
    engineer= ump or scar put them down quite nicely,m1911 or burst, rpg is very fun to play with it almost like a sniper but with an explosion on contact,ext ammo for more rpg fun, mag ammo alt wpn
    recon= tough to say because i love every bolt rifle dnt like the semi autos to much, but the m95 is my fav because its enourmous lol other than that i use the GOL, burst because if im up close and get hit mark wit the sniper i can pull out the pistol and light it up, i use every scope depending on style of play and map size,magnum ammo is a must u get less hits and more kills, alt w for vehicles
    hope this helps u guys
    my gamertag is DazedSniper91 i play on xbox dnt b scared to send me a friend request

  • Rev Fresh94(XBL)

    I use the GOL, m1911, Magnum ammo, and 12x scope with mortar strike. It's a great setup for hardcore mode.

  • Jerad

    ya omg i played the game once and its way better then mw2 if you mw2 fans think different then wow you need to open your eyes

  • Snakebiteloo

    For beginners i recommend being a medic just because you can get s**t ton of XP in a match just healing your team mates without being good at the game yet
    Set ups:
    Assault: STG.77 with shotgun (usualy not always), 4x scope, magnum ammo
    Medic: MG3 because the rate of fire rapes, extra ammo so that you dont have to worry about useless assault people, and magnum ammo (MG3 does no damage without it)
    Recon: i dont have anything unlocked but i use the M1A1, mortar, light weight equipment, and magnum ammo
    Engineer: XM8, any rocket, extra explosives, and body armor (i know it doesnt help a lot but still)

  • Chase

    I love bbfc2 compared to mw2. The maps are larger scale. More players in a match. Better match types. Anyway here are my classes. Assault-G3, Magnum revolver, c4, light weight package, magnum ammo, v alt

  • GEORGE

    The knifing in MW2 is so unrealistic and overused

  • Danish dude

    Assault: AN-94 Abakan+40mm grenade+Grach+Magnum ammo+red dot+ALT W
    Engineer: UMP45+Grach+RPG+Magnum ammo+red dot+ALT W
    Medic: MG3/M60+Grach+Magnum ammo+red dot+ALT W
    Recon: Saiga+C4+Grach+Magnum ammo+red dot+ALT W

  • Ducky

    Medic: Saiga, M1911, Medkit speed, SG uprade, and alt. fire.
    I pretty much use this most of the time, running around the front line killing and reviving. I use the saiga, because it has to be the best shotgun in the game bar none. You can get it firing fast as a USAS and have a pretty long reach for a shotgun. The M1911 just works well for me and it's always helpful to have a backup in a vehicle.

  • carl

    i have mw2 and bfbc2 and this is the lowdown: mw2 1player storyline is better but bf2 multiplayer is better
    assault+g4+red dot+mag ammo
    or medic+m60+red dot+mag ammo ..that is all

  • Desmond

    Honestly, i don't have a favorite weapon customization. What i have is skill, smarts, and tactics that overpower my enemy. for when you use all these, you can be an elite expert in gaming. Then again, i do love the medic class since reloading is a b*tch in this game, i die whenever i reload. Although, i love the recon class since long range is better for me and worse for them.

  • BRENDON

    Both are great games. However modern warfare 2 is FILLED with campers and people who spawn and instantly swap to the secondary where they have a shotgun or rpg bc2 has some campers but they usually die really fast because no building is a safe hiding spot.

  • Pickles87

    Assault– G3 with C4, magnum ammo, and fast sprint. my k:d ratio tripled, and I hunt tanks now lol. I think I have fast vehicle reload but I never use it, tanks are too high profile, I prefer to sneak in quickly on foot and hit the tank when its not looking. and the G3 is sick with those magnum rounds.

    Recon– Silenced SVU with extra ammo and magnum rounds, and i switch evenly between mortar and C4. (mortar against enemy snipers behind that big rock, C4 on vehicle maps.) I love the SVU now, I had three people capping the middle flag on Port Valdez all crouched side by side by the concrete blocks. got all 3 in one 10 round magazine from like 30 feet away. Assault rifles cant do that in my experience. And maybe it takes 2-3 rounds to kill an infantry instead of 1-2, but its semi auto, so no big deal. Perhaps its lame, but its definitely fun!

  • wookie

    Hey guys what are the best shotguns when stock????!!!!

  • killa broccoli

    oh yeah one more thing no gravity i MW2? what???? YAY LETS HIT THE MOON WITH MY RPG XD

  • killa broccoli

    assault- an-94 abakan mp443 grach 4x scope magnum ammo alt wep ammo 40mm grenade
    engineer- 9A-91 avtomat ( yes i know first gun you get) grach extra ammo improved demolitions alt wep ammo rpg
    medic……. i hate medic…..
    recon- m24 mp rex extra ammo improved demolitons mortar alt wep ammo

    engineer is by far my favourite class i have maxed out all of them and have every weapon but 9A-91( has a platnum) is still my favourite use it as like a defender gun but watch out for its ammo count cuz its burns it fast

  • M14 Plat

    too many of u ppl use overpowered classes. My loadout?

    Assault- M14 (platinum :P), WWII 1911, LW pack, Magnum with Alt Weps
    Medic- XM8, WWII 1911, Ammo Up, LMG training
    Recon- Gol Sniper Magnum, WWII 1911, 12X Scope, Magnum

    Engineers are almost pointless unless its an all vehicle map (ie. Atacama Desert)
    BTW i traded in MW2 for BFBC2 lol

  • sessine

    Battlefield all the way – accept no substitutes.

    Assault, Medic, Recon – all good, whatever the gun (almost). Engineer? Unplayable for me. I suck with vehicles, except light fast transports, and can be secondary gunner in heli's just fiiiine.

    I prefer akaban, XM8-p for assault. MP443 for pistol, magnum ammo, and 4 times sights – vehicle loadouts are meaningless for infantry like me.

    Medic? M60 is ok, but prefer XM8, and esp MG36, MP443, magnum ammo and red dot are a must.

    Favourite in the whole game? It's got to be the VSS with MP443 (almost as much ammo in the clip!), extra clips, and magnum ammo. Nothing kills faster!!! I don't snipe, I get upclose and personal, and get Ace Pin 75% of the time with this loadout.

    Not for wimps though. You have to be fast, think quick, think laterally, and work well with a squad with a resupply guy. If you're good, this kit will bring you many many accusations of being a hacker. Has for me.

  • Alan

    I dont know why people are arguing over MW2 and BFBC2? Im 15 and i LOVE both. MW2=run n gun fun BFBC2=tactical fun…………BOTH GREAT GAMES!!!!

  • KHenry01

    how do you get extra things on your gun? sorry im new but so far i quite like the second assult rifle but i just cant get enough of the first snipeer and blowing up tanks with my c4 gettig triple kills :) btw whats the best sniper sinse iv unlocked a couple but just dont like them :)??? p.s i loved cod i thought it was the only decent game but not any more battlefeild ownnss all :D:D

  • H00BLER

    NOLAN: Please do go back to MW2. It just shows BC2 is to hardcore for you and you prefer the easy shooters which dont need any skill and which doesnt require you to work as a team. MW2 does all them things.

    BC2 is alot beter in everyway there are bigger maps, you can destory bits of the maps such as buildings which turns the map around and give advantage or disadvantages to either side. Unlike MW2 where your stuck to one map which is repeated, it is the same all the time and you can camp in a window for ages without it getting blown out of it by the MW2 RPGS which are useless because they are used to destory buiildings and armour :S why have them if it does not have that stuff.

    BC2 Sniping is more realistic because you need to measure distance between you and the enemy and use bullet drop skill to get that kill. There no quickscoping noobs, which in real life does not happen and as a sniper on BC2 You need to use the enviroment to your advantage unlike MW2 where you can just run around like a chicken no scoping which just ruins and takes the point away of what a sniper if for.

    BC2 Beats MW2 hands down you may agree or disagree, but most MW2 fans dislike BC because its to hard, and the game play is not fast. WELL!!! since when in real life is wars fast? since when did you see a guy with a knife charge and army of troops and take them all out or a sniper run at you doing 360 sniper shots. JUST NO!.

    BC focuses on both realistic and non realistic, such as the weapons have diffrent strengths and ranges, MW do have this put come on the maps are so small the pistols can shoot the length of the maps anyway :S.

    MW is just another typical |FPS|, BC needs skill, patients and a good brain to work out where the enemy is, where they will attack.

    MW supply you you which crappy game modes where your able to camp the spawns and objectives try it on BC, you will get bombed or blown up by a tank which OH YES!!! MW does not have them through they have RPG-s , but dont forget you can shoot the jets down with RPGS, yes thats right ! jets which fly so low to the ground which they do it real life! of course not.

    Ill stop my rant but MW2 is for people new to FPS, BC for the more older and patient gamers who need to think before running across the road.

    Agree or not BC2 gamers would own MW2 gamers on any game :)

    • anon

      I disagree with you, on multiple of your points, for one thing COD isn’t realistic and was never meant to be, BBC2 is designed to be realistic there is no way to compare it, I love BBC2 for the realistic sniper and the vehicles but MW2 is fast pasted and that is why many people enjoy it and equal skill is required in bot, I am not an older gamer BBC was the first FPS I got. I have nothing against BBC2 or MW2 they are both great games for what they designed to do/be.

  • The Hero of Canton

    I have only played BC2 so I won't comment on MW2.

    I only logged in about 10 hours into it so I do not have all the unlocks. I am currently level 12. I do agree with many others in that all of the weapons can work well in different situations.

    Assault: The weapons I've received stars the fastest in are: the xm8 (very well balanced), AN-94 Abakan and m416 ( have not unlocked the M16A2 yet). I use red-dot sight as the other sights blind my peripheral vision and I found these rifles suited to my playing style. Assault is a very good beginner class to get used to playing BC2. Don't forget to hand out those ammo kits on holding positions or people that call for ammo! Easy points!

    Engineer: I've only unlocked the first two primaries, I like the SCAR better than the 9A-91 so far. I also sometimes use the M1 Garand and M1A1 Thompson depending on the situation or my mood. A vastly different mindset is needed to play this class. Running and gunning like a lone-wolf will get you killed fast. Using cover/flanking positions to pop out and RPG a tank/vehicle/enemy is loads of fun.

    Medic: still in the process of unlocking, haven't played enough to comment. I can see how easy it is to rack up points with this class. Don't forget to hand out those health kits on holding positions! Easy points!

    Recon/Wookie: I absolutely detest camping and I am still in the process of unlocking this class. I can't snipe to save my life so as a result I do the unconventional "assault wookie" routine which is: grab a shotgun, use the shotgun upgrade specialization along with extra ammo and spam motion mines.

    There are a lot of good guides on tips, strategy, even tweaks (to increase FPS for PC users) online, just search for it.

    • M14 Platinum

      lucky dude. u dont kno wut i would do for an M1 garand. its one of the best guns in the game if u kno how to use it. same goes for the M14 (the non-vet version)

      • The Hero of Canton

        hey m14,

        it's pretty easy to get veteran status. What I did was simple.
        1) google, download and install Battlefield Heroes (it's free to play).

        2) Use the same email address you used for your BFBC2 to register for Battlefield Heroes

        3) go to EA tech support and "chat" with a representative, tell them that you would like to upgrade your veteran status. Tell them you have both BFBC2 and battlefield heroes. this took me about 10-20 mins to find ea chat support and "chat" with them.

        4) boom, m1 garand unlocked. Hope this helps.

  • eric

    i have both of them and, i actually prefer mw2 because i dont actually think when i attack.
    soo i prefer mw2 but bc2is also cool if im not like.. stressed do yea fv weapon assault xm8 with x4

    I just bought bfbc 2 for 40 bucks for my ps3 a week ago and it is an actual war in online. i mean the classes, vehicles, weapons, overall feeling, and graphics truly amazing. wether online in pc, ps3, or 360 THE ONLY WAR HERE is BFBC 2 is BETTER than mw2. ?? no war because bfbc2 won lets get out there and play gamers.

  • mike

    I have been playing mw2 for a long time. when the game first came out it was epic, the maps were unknown and it was fun. now its a joke, everyone mods and camps and glitches, and the only way to win now is to do it yourself. I have every gun and every attachment and after getting that you realize how much the game sucks. I paid 30$ for 6 new maps and 4 RECYCLED maps from cod4 (super lame) and these maps were all garbage, its still a campfest. I just got bc2 and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing, the maps are great and the add ons are free and its hard to camp. bc2 is a better game, I haven’t touched cod since I got it.

  • Uber Boris

    Well my best class to use is the Engineer. 1 the PP-2000, 2 the M93R Burst, then the gadget is AT-Mine, Lastly for the specializations i use the Magnum rounds, and Explosive leg pouch. (the magnum rounds make the PP-2000 and the M93R stronger) (the Explosive leg pouch+the AT-Mines allows you to carry x6 mines) >:) NOTE: don't set the mines to close to each other because if one explodes they all do.

    I find both of these games to be pretty awesome. As ya'll were saying, BFBC2 is more tactical, as MW2 is more lone-wolf, i agree with that. But BFBC2 does have some campers as i've notcied. People like to sit around the M-COMM station with a LMG and just wait. But i guess i shouldn't be complaining because they are simply trying to keep people away from the objective. But then, when i'm on defence, i've noticed that a lot of people simply use vehicles to get kills. Like i've noticed there is always a Blackhawk gunning me down or a Bradley trying to blow my building down. This gets kind of annoying because to normally kill the vehicle, you have to get behind it, or find a TOW launcher. This gets annoying to me. But i find this better than having a Chopper gunner mowing me down, or campers just killing me everytime i take a certain path. But i find both of these games fun.
