About The Game

The sequel to the blockbuster online multiplayer war Battlefield franchise, EA and developer Digital Illusions are taking the battle to another realm with a modern-war era edition. Players from the United States, China and the Middle East Coalition (all armed with realistic armarments and vehicles) will all be represented in harrowing battles for a massive number of online players (more than any of the previous Battlefield titles). The new game engine offers vastly improved visuals, physics and sound, plus a dynamic stage limiting system that scales the size of the online battlefield according to how many players are logged on.

Battlefield 2 Review

By Pauline Clay |

The Battlefield series is a favorite around the office at IGN. It offers up a unique shooter experience that you don't find elsewhere in a "realistic" setting. Vehicles and infantry move realistically, and weapons have firing cones and rates that mimic actual life fairly closely (balanced for fun, of course). More importantly, the pace of the game is undeniably fun, and the "Battlefield moments" like helicopters getting sideswiped by planes, tanks exploding, bodies catapulting across the sky, and so on, are all so frickin' cool that it's near impossible to stop playing. Battlefield 2 is a lot like the original 1942, in that respect. But this time around, the developers at DICE and publishers at EA have set out to create a more team-oriented experience with their official sequel, and they've done a terrific job at that.

Battlefield 2 is a great game. After playing for quite a few hours (often shirking other responsibilities), I and pretty much everyone else here at will heartily recommend BF2 to fans of the series and beg those who haven't played before or didn't like the original to give the demo a whirl. Any game that can make a large group of editors take a Saturday and play for 14 hours straight until 4:30 in the morning has to be pretty awesome... It's just not perfect.

Battlefield 2 is set in the near future, where plausible conflicts between the US and both China and the Middle East Coalition (a fictional faction) flare up. Most of the battle locations seem to center around oil fields, refineries or dams, which makes a kind of sense given the conflicts. Each of these areas also comes with a small description about the purpose of the map, which helps explain things a bit.

Twelve different locations make Battlefield's battlefields. Maps aren't as diverse as I would have liked them to be but are still pretty well thought-out. Some environments are better than others in terms of gameplay, while a few simply look cool. Strike at Karkand, for instance, is an excellent map. It combines fast-paced gameplay with good amounts of strategy in an urban setting. It's got a claustrophobic appeal that makes the experience much more intense. It's a perfect map for tightly grouped infantry combat, and I suspect it'll become a favorite of those that prefer a match without a ton of huge vehicles. On the other side of the spectrum is Kubra Dam, which I have a strong distaste for. While the dam does look really cool (particularly when flying around in a helicopter), this particular map is a huge pain in the ass to navigate without a vehicle -- enough so that it creates a vortex of fun so that those of us in the office who have been playing now have little faith that it'll get any better with time.


The rest of the maps offer a varying degree of good and concentrate on various parts of the game, but it's easy to want more distinct environments. The maps in 1942 were more impressively diverse in nature than Battlefield 2's. They covered areas like Stalingrad, Berlin, the Battle of the Bulge, Wake Island, El Alamein, Midway... They all had a very different feel; you were on a different map every time you played. It's not as diverse this time around. Some of the maps feel very similar to others and, in fact, even look very similar to others. When you've got a fictional war between three factions, it seems like you could do whatever you wished with the creation of maps. Jerusalem, Europe, Russia, Indonesia, and Taiwan all come to mind as potential areas of interest. I suppose some of the relative lack of variety comes from the need to create art for each of the areas, and considering the higher detail, it might be a bigger task than before. Still, what is available ranges from good to excellent.

One of the more interesting things about each map in Battlefield 2 is that there are three versions, depending on the number of players participating. 16, 32 and 64-player flavors are all provided. The difference between 16 and 32-player fields is pretty huge. Maps set to 16 cut the size of the combat zone down considerably to allow players to find each other quickly and fight over a small number of total capture points. The differences between the 32 and 64 player maps can be less dramatic. While there are some maps that expand the territory noticeably, there are those that simply add a tiny amount (or no amount) of extra room along with a spawn point or two.

Note: Always make backups and alter game files at your own risk. In order to make your team practically invincible and have permanent endurance

go to the game folder (C:Program FilesEA GamesBattlefield 2modsbf2Objects_server.zipsoldiers)

and first choose which side that you want to modify; ch for china, eu for

europe, mec for arabs, and us for united states, Etc, remember to keep the

folder open by minimizing it to the taskbar.

First make a backup then cut the file and right click on it and uncheck read

only. Then go to ?_heavy_soldier.tweak and ?_light_soldier.tweak and open them in a text editor.

ObjectTemplate.SprintDissipationTime 8

change to

ObjectTemplate.SprintDissipationTime 999999

ObjectTemplate.armor.maxHitPoints 100

change to

ObjectTemplate.armor.maxHitPoints 999999

ObjectTemplate.armor.hitPoints 100

change to

ObjectTemplate.armor.hitPoints 999999

Then save the file and right click on it and select read only and place it

back In the correct folder.

To upgrade weapons, go to C:Program FilesEA GamesBattlefield 2modsbf2

Objects_server.zipkits and then again select which side that you want to

modify; ch for china, eu for europe, mec for arabs, and us for united states,

remember to keep the folder open by minimizing it to the taskbar.

First make a backup then cut the file and place it on the desktop and right

click on it and uncheck read only, then open it in a text editor. Change all of the following files by opening each one:

?_Assault.con, ?_AT.con, ?_Engineer.con, ?_Medic.con, ?Sniper.con, ?, _Specops.con, and ?_Support.con

scrolling to:

ObjectTemplate.unlockLevel 2

and change to:

ObjectTemplate.unlockLevel 0

and do this on all of the above mentioned files which will upgrade their

weapons, then save the file and right click on it and select read only and place it

back into the correct folder. Play the game and try running without losing endurance, shooting upgraded

weapons and taking direct fire without injury, now you are a UberSoldat!

  • mapList.list: Every map on the server has an ID number, which is used for voting to change maps. This command lists those numbers, the map name, game mode and the number of players if specified.

  • mapList.configFile: Used to specify the location of the _mapList.con The default is My DocumentsBattlefield 2 DemoServerConfigs

  • mapList.load: Makes the server reload the _mapList.con

  • mapList.save: Saves the current map list on the server to the file _mapList.con

  • mapList.mapCount: Shows the total number of maps in the current map list

  • mapList.currentMap: Shows the map list ID number of the current map being played

  • mapList.clear: Clears the current map list. Warning: If there are no maps in the map list when the server starts loading a new map, all clients will be left on the loading screen.

  • mapList.remove: Removes the map you specify from the map list

  • mapList.append: [number of players] Add a new map to the end of the map list. You must specify the map name and the game mode. Number of players is optional, if not specified will default to the current server setting.

  • mapList.insert: [number of players] Exactly the same as mapList.append, but with this command you can specify at what map ID number to insert the new map into the list at.

To setup remote console access to the server:

- On the server create a new plain text document in admin called default.cfg
- Enter the following text into the new file:

port=4711
password=YourPassword

- Save the file, and start the server.

Now you can access the server remotely by using the following commands
from a client:

- rcon login
Use this command to login to the server.

- rcon users
This command lists all the users connected to the server. Very similar to admin.listPlayers

- rcon exec
Replace with a console command you would like to execute on the server.
For example: rcon exec admin.kickPlayer 3

  • admin.listPlayers: Lists the players connected to the server. This command lists the players ID number, their player name and if the player is remote it also lists the players IP number. The players ID number is also available on the Scoreboard / Manage Tab

  • admin.runNextLevel: Forces the server to end the round and start the next map in the map list.

  • admin.currentLevel: Shows the map list ID number for the current map being played. The same as mapList.currentMap.

  • admin.nextLevel: Shows the map list ID number for the next map to be played.

  • admin.restartMap: Restarts the current map.

  • admin.banPlayer: [timeout] Enter the player ID number you would like to ban. Bans the player from this server by using their IP address.

    - Bans can be set on CD key hashes.
    - Bans are stored as absolute times in banlist.con. Existing bans in banlist.con will be interpreted as permanent bans.

    You can choose from a selection of time outs:
    - Entering 'perm' means that the ban is permanent. This is the default if no time out is entered.
    - An integral number meaning the number of seconds the ban will be active (i.e. 3600 means one hour).
    - Entering 'round' means the ban is active until the next map.
    - A whole number preceded by a colon (i.e. :1234567), meaning the epoch expiration time of the ban (number of seconds since 1 Jan 1970).

  • admin.banPlayerKey: [timeout] Enter the player ID number you would like to ban. Bans the player from this server by using their CD key hash. You can also specify a time out. See admin.banPlayer for the time out list.

  • admin.addAddressToBanList: [timeout] Enter the IP number you would like to ban. You can also specify a time out. See admin.banPlayer for the time out list.

  • admin.addKeyToBanList: [timeout] Enter the CD key hash you would like to ban. You can also specify a time out. See admin.banPlayer for the time out list.

  • admin.removeAddressFromBanList: Enter the IP address you would like to remove from the ban list.

  • admin.removeKeyFromBanList: Enter the CD key hash you would like to remove from the ban list.

  • admin.clearBanList: Clears all ban lists.

  • admin.listBannedAddresses: Displays a list of the currently banned IP addresses.

  • admin.listBannedKeys: Displays a list of the currently banned CD keys.

  • admin.kickPlayer: Enter the ID number of the player you would like to kick.

Welcome to another FAQ. This one is meant to be a quickie for one of my favorite
shooting games of all time, Battlefield 2. This guide is for the Support Unit.
The unit that holds the mighty Squad Assault Weapon and a number of other deadly
weapons that are used against the enemies.

I came across Battlefield 2 post Christmas 2006. It was cheap, so I purchased
it. I enjoy it still today and am currently a Staff Sergeant. I am a long time
FAQer (well, not REALLY long) for about 3 years now. This is my thirtieth file.

So, I've introduced myself and the game. Now to get into more detail about the
Support. What is support? Let's see what the dictionary says:

To bear or hold up (a load, mass, structure, part, etc.); serve as a foundation
for.

This means that we will be one of the main units on our squad or team. What else
does it say?

A person or thing that gives aid or assistance.  

It seems that we have a role to fill that means we will have to assist others
and provide them with help. This will be covered in due time. So let's get down
to the guide.

I finished everything I need to so far. It's looking fairly nice and is done
until someone points something out about it. So, enjoy!

May 5th, 2007

Started to lay out the guide, made the first couple sections and the ASCII
parts, which look somewhat nice. Man, I definately need a specific style.

V------------------------------------------------------------------------------>

Now it's time for us to look at the good points and the less good points about
the support class:

PRO
---------

+ The Support class has a portable machine gun, that fires very quickly and does
a lot of damage.

+ The Machine Guns do not need to reload often. Instead, it fires until it
overheats.

+ The Support class wears Body Armor, which protects it from most enemy fire
except for the head, at the cost of some running speed. Which is okay, we won't
be running a whole lot.

+ Unlike the other body armor units, the support has throwable grenades. Which
will help with accuracy of throwing them.

+ The Support class can resupply teammates with ammunition. Throwable ammo bags
can be deployed on the ground for easy step over. If a support unit is in a
vehicle, it also gives ammo to the other passengers.

+ The PKM unlock is an extremely powerful and fairly accurate weapon that is
used in most situations.

+ Support has many abilities that other units are lacking, and it is usually a
team player behind those sights. So this is good for everyone.

CON
---------

- The Support Class will take a while to reload, however rarely you have to.

- The Machine guns are quite innaccurate, even when proning. You have to have
some skill to play as this class.

- After throwing grenades or knifing someone, pulling out the weapon takes a
lot longer. Which is why pistol is reccomended.

- This class is NOT stealthy. It will make a lot of noise and let you know where
you are.


+++

As you can see, the positives far outweigh the negatives. Most of the negatives
have a way around them however. Meaning that those flaws aren't truly going to
impede you.

V------------------------------------------------------------------------------>

================================================
United States Marine Corps
================================================

Standard Issue Combat Knife
---------------------------

The Knife isn't probably going to be used much with this class. Usually, when an
opponent is close enough to knife within a few steps, you are dead. The Support
main weapons are innaccurate at close range. So your best option is pistol, then
knife. The most you will use this for is if you are moving through the city, and
you spot a unit firing at a group. Sneak up behind them and stab away. Try to
prone first. Besides, we don't really want to be close to enemies.

M9 Semi-Automatic Pistol
---------------------------

The Pistol is our first line of defense in close range. If someone is close,
pull this out and go crazy. There is no silencer, so it's kind of loud but seems
easier to aim. If you overheat, you should also pull this out. You shouldn't
overheat, though.

M249 Squad Automatic Weapon
---------------------------

The M249 SAW is probably the weakest of the three base weapons. It has little
accuracy and low power. However, it does have a large clip size. It will still
overheat though. This, along with the other support guns, should NEVER be fired
rapidly. Fire it in small bursts of no less than 3 to no more than 10 bullets.
This means you can check if an enemy is repositioned or dead, as the heat of the
battle can get to you and the muzzle flash is there a lot. The bursts themselves
should be fairly rapid. Pause for a third of a second and fire. The recoil on
this gun is crazy, even while prone and using sights.

High Explosive Frag Grenade
---------------------------

The Grenades are somewhat overpowered than what they are in life, but they can
still be used effectively. On the start of maps, you should probably start
throwing them everywhere (where the units on the other team should be). It's
not that big of a problem for you, as you can just get more of them with the
Ammo Bags. They are also good for throwing at command posts to soften groups up
or make them stunned from the explosion. Throwing into buildings where you know
enemies are is also a great plan.

Ammo Resupply Bags
---------------------------

The ammo bags are plentiful, you keep growing them, and after you lose them all
you can simply reselect them to get another one. If you step on one, you get all
ammo replenished. If you walk near one, you slowly get it back. Because of this,
the ammunition bags are the easiest point making method for support. Begin the
level and follow the people until the point they start throwing grenades into
enemy territory. Go a bit ahead and throw these EVERYWHERE. The other players
will pick them up and you will get a ton of resupply points.

It's been my experience that Snipers, Assault, Anti-Tank and Engineers will take
more ammo. This is because Snipers deploy claymores often, Assault use the
Grenade Launcher, Anti-Tank uses Rockets, and Engineers use up a lot of shotgun
shells. Throw them instead of hanging out, because it's better for points. It's
handy for other classes to walk through areas and get ammo. You should also be
on the lookout for units calling for ammo. Keep deploying them if you have some.

Body Armor
---------------------------

Body Armor is a vest that will protect your chest from bullets. This is helpful
while proning and suppressing a group. If someone shoots you from the side, you
will be quite alright for a couple seconds and can turn at them. It comes at a
cost of speed while running. But the Support class is really only there to
suppress and be deployed to guard certain areas. So this isn't much of a loss.

================================================
Middle Eastern Coalition
================================================

Standard Issue Combat Knife
---------------------------

The Knife isn't probably going to be used much with this class. Usually, when an
opponent is close enough to knife within a few steps, you are dead. The Support
main weapons are innaccurate at close range. So your best option is pistol, then
knife. The most you will use this for is if you are moving through the city, and
you spot a unit firing at a group. Sneak up behind them and stab away. Try to
prone first. Besides, we don't really want to be close to enemies.

Bagheera Pistol
---------------------------

The Pistol is our first line of defense in close range. If someone is close,
pull this out and go crazy. There is no silencer, so it's kind of loud but seems
easier to aim. If you overheat, you should also pull this out. You shouldn't
overheat, though.

RPK-74
---------------------------

The RPK-74 is the best normal weapon you can use for support. It is powerful,
accurate and noisy. Just the way you like it. It has little recoil and can fire
single shots fairly accurately. I play better with this than all the other base
weapons combined. Bursts are even more effective here because there isn't much
recoil, so you will hit 90% of the time if you have a good shot. The muzzle
flash is slightly less, but not by much. It also carries less ammunition than
the other one, but it is many times more powerful.

High Explosive Frag Grenade
---------------------------

The Grenades are somewhat overpowered than what they are in life, but they can
still be used effectively. On the start of maps, you should probably start
throwing them everywhere (where the units on the other team should be). It's
not that big of a problem for you, as you can just get more of them with the
Ammo Bags. They are also good for throwing at command posts to soften groups up
or make them stunned from the explosion. Throwing into buildings where you know
enemies are is also a great plan.

Ammo Bags
---------------------------

The ammo bags are plentiful, you keep growing them, and after you lose them all
you can simply reselect them to get another one. If you step on one, you get all
ammo replenished. If you walk near one, you slowly get it back. Because of this,
the ammunition bags are the easiest point making method for support. Begin the
level and follow the people until the point they start throwing grenades into
enemy territory. Go a bit ahead and throw these EVERYWHERE. The other players
will pick them up and you will get a ton of resupply points.

It's been my experience that Snipers, Assault, Anti-Tank and Engineers will take
more ammo. This is because Snipers deploy claymores often, Assault use the
Grenade Launcher, Anti-Tank uses Rockets, and Engineers use up a lot of shotgun
shells. Throw them instead of hanging out, because it's better for points. It's
handy for other classes to walk through areas and get ammo. You should also be
on the lookout for units calling for ammo. Keep deploying them if you have some.

Body Armor
---------------------------

Body Armor is a vest that will protect your chest from bullets. This is helpful
while proning and suppressing a group. If someone shoots you from the side, you
will be quite alright for a couple seconds and can turn at them. It comes at a
cost of speed while running. But the Support class is really only there to
suppress and be deployed to guard certain areas. So this isn't much of a loss.

Chinese Free People Liberators Army
================================================

Standard Issue Combat Knife
---------------------------

The Knife isn't probably going to be used much with this class. Usually, when an
opponent is close enough to knife within a few steps, you are dead. The Support
main weapons are innaccurate at close range. So your best option is pistol, then
knife. The most you will use this for is if you are moving through the city, and
you spot a unit firing at a group. Sneak up behind them and stab away. Try to
prone first. Besides, we don't really want to be close to enemies.

QSZ-92 Pistol
---------------------------

The Pistol is our first line of defense in close range. If someone is close,
pull this out and go crazy. There is no silencer, so it's kind of loud but seems
easier to aim. If you overheat, you should also pull this out. You shouldn't
overheat, though.


Type 95 Machine
---------------------------

The Chinese Machine Gun is less powerful than the last two. It has a smaller
clip, and you can almost blow the whole thing in one continous firing. It is
a lot more accurate, but like I said, it's weaker. I'd reccomend you unlock the
PKM instead of using this thing.

High Explosive Frag Grenade

The Grenades are somewhat overpowered than what they are in life, but they can
still be used effectively. On the start of maps, you should probably start
throwing them everywhere (where the units on the other team should be). It's

Unlock Weapons
================================================

PKM
---------------------------

The best support gun in the game. This firearm suffers from virtually no recoil
while you hold it down automatically. So the accuracy is unmatched, and when it
is fired in bursts, it's even more accurate! The PKM is VERY loud. Half the time
I feel like I'm going to go deaf. The gun loses ammo rather slowly but overheats
quickly, and it's the most powerful support gun as well. I've shot down choppers
from roofs before. It's not very good at cover fire, but it's good for going for
some kills! The only problem is the overheat and small clip size.

MG36
---------------------------

The MG36 isn't quite as good as the other weapons. But it is still decent. It
has a little less power than the PKM, and a lot more recoil. However, it's
somehow EASIER to land hits on enemies with this. Why? Because the sights are
thin. It's pretty much an automatic, huge clip G36E. It has the RPK ammo clip
and is a fair gun. I prefer the PKM, but it all comes down to what you prefer.
To get this you will need the PKM anyway, so what does it matter.

V------------------------------------------------------------------------------>

The Support class is the second highest scoring class in the game (first is the
medic). They are somewhat newbie friendly and easy to work with. Here are some
roles that you can fill in the squad, as well as strategies to work against the
Support units.

As A Support
------------

- Throw ammo bags in areas players will come in. Drop them like they are hot. I
can get 30 points in about 5 minutes doing nothing but ammo.

- Lay Down Suppressing fire as much as possible. This gives your teammates a
chance to revive, heal and move out. Proning in a spot with cover, but a wide
view is the best place to go. Fire in the short bursts, so we get more accurate
and less chance of overheating.

- Support is weak against most thing except for infantry. If you and your team
encounter vehicles, get out of there. You won't last long. If there is an enemy
boat or chopper then sure, fire some at them. But try to leave it to the real
men.

- Try not to drop a TON of ammo bags in a command post. Drop a couple as you are
capturing it, but dumping a lot will just leave it fueled and ready for an enemy
squad who comes by.

- If you have to pull out your Machine Gun, try to hide as you do it. It takes a
couple extra seconds than most units to do this. If you can't hide, the pistol
is your friend.

- Running around and following a Sniper or a unit that has grenades can get you
some easy points, and so will they as they drop tons of grenades and claymores.
This can get you kicked or banned on some servers however.

- Again, supply ammo to your men. It's the most important thing you can do as a
support.

- Hiding on a roof is good for long range, but at close range the enemy will
have a small blind spot to sneak in.

- Deploying two Support players in a post can be good. Have each cover a spot
where enemies will approach and cover that side. Easy points. A medic with them
would be welcome, but have them hide until you die.

In a Squad
----------

- Having a support in your squad is a good idea. As the leader, you can be sure
that your squadmates have plenty of ammo. You will also have body armor, and can
last longer than most classes with you. Most support units will be away from the
battle somewhat so they can get some shots in.

- VoIP makes this much better, as you can communicate to the others about when
to run and such.

- Suppressing fire has just become better. Situations:

You spot a person running, you prone and fire rapidly at them. They duck behind
a sandbag bunker. Then you say "Get him, I'll cover you". He may try to pop up,
but you fire at him. Your teammate comes in front of it and BOOM! No more threat
here.

Or maybe you have a man down, while hiding, he peeked out to shoot but fell
down. So you stand up and begin firing rapidly at the enemy position while your
men get the other guy. Remember, supression will let you advance, defend and
regroup.

- You can set up a defensive post away from your squad, so maybe you are heading
to a post, and the leader tells you to hang back and fire at oncoming enemies.
It works better than you'd think.

- You can even defend with the squad. You can take a whole side as long as one
other person has your back.

VS other Classes
----------------

Sniper:
Against a sniper, you have little chance unless you are at close range. If you
try to hit them, you will probably prone, making you an easy target to hit. If
you stand, you won't be able to aim very well, and you are still a target. If
you are at close range, you outgun them and can fire longer. If they turn a
corner, you will have to flank them because they probably dropped a claymore for
you to run in to. At long range, try to keep some supressing fire on them in
hopes you hit them or a teammate gets them.

Special Ops:
Against a Special Ops, you have the advantage unless you are at close to medium
range. They aren't very skilled at the long range. The problem is that the
closer you are to them, the less accurate you are. They will also become more
accurate as they get closer. Remember that they have a Semi-Automatic weapon as
well so they can rip them into you. Try to draw off fire until they reload some
how. At long range, just fire single or bursts at them, they will fold.

Assault:
If you can catch an assault off of guard, you can defeat him easily. Just fire
into him. The only catch is that he has body armor. If he sees you as you are
attacking, then he'll launch a grenade at you most likely. Which will probably
hit or get nearby, because you are proning and stuck. Either one can be bad
because you are weaker, dead or have the ringing ears and blurred vision. Which
lets him hit you.

Support:
Against other support, it really comes down to skill. If you are better, you
will win. Other conditions are who saw who first, and who started firing first.
If you are equal in all of the above, the winner is whoever has the better
weapon. If you are at close range, then I'd reccomend the pistol or knife, as
that's what they will probably do to you as well.

Engineer:
At any range other than close, you are the winner. The only time you won't win
is if the other player is skilled with the unlock MP-7. This means that it's
like fighting a weaker spec-ops. If you do get the fortune to meet one at medium
to long range with a shotgun, fire away. They can only hit you with a pistol and
that won't do much. Close range, you are undergunned. As they have a shotgun
that will rip you into pieces.

Medic:
Medics are like Spec Ops that are slightly more accurate because most of their
weapons are three shot bursts. The MEC and Chinese will be like Special Ops, but
the three shot bursts can be a problem. As 90% of the three bursters have an
incredibly accurate G36E. Which is an issue. But treat this situation just like
the Spec Ops. The three bursts will be a problem at close range as well.

Anti-Tank:
Against Anti-Tank, you have a 99% chance of winning at almost all ranges except
for close range, where it is more like 80%. This is because the enemies have a
tiny clip that fires way too fast. The only problem is that proning will make
you a rocket target, but they are usually dead before that's an issue. So fire
away!

Against a Support
-----------------

Sniper:
You have the upper hand. Find a place you can fire at them with little return
fire. A bush with a side covered by a wall can help. Or on top of a hill or
below one. this lets you expose only the top half slightly while being able to
fire at the stationary proning enemy. Grenades will work fine as well.

Support:
Against other support, it really comes down to skill. If you are better, you
will win. Other conditions are who saw who first, and who started firing first.
If you are equal in all of the above, the winner is whoever has the better
weapon. If you are at close range, then I'd reccomend the pistol or knife, as
that's what they will probably do to you as well. Grenades too.

Special Ops:
You also have a semi-automatic weapon that you can fire. So find cover, then
pop out an unexpected way and fire at the proning enemy support. Grenades also
work well. Or you can drop C4, retreat a bit and wait for them to show up. Then
blow it up! Grenades work also.

Assault:
Try and launch grenades at them. If you miss, pull a smoke grenade or a flash
bang out and chuck that, then dodge out a side and come up not at the front to
get some shots in.

Engineer:
Engineers have the problem of lack of range. If you have the MP-7, then fire at
the like a Special Ops. If not, then you want to move around a building or
something so that they aren't facing you and ravage with a pistol. If you are
lucky enough to get REALLY close, knife them or use the shotgun. You can also
try some grenades.

Medic:
Treat this like a Special Ops. Though if you find cover, try dropping some
health bags around you before you prone out to shoot. This lets you live longer
and you can still shoot if you get hit a bit. Lobbing grenades to the position
works well too.

Anti-Tank:
Well, a class with no grenades. Instead, you get a low accuracy rifle that fires
too quickly, which won't be much help. No, use the pistol for shots, and if you
have a good one, use the Rocket Launcher and blow them off the ground.

Support Combat Badge
--------------------

Basic - 10 Kills as Support Class in 1 Round
Very easy, just go around and shoot some people to get this one.

Veteran - 20 Kills as Support Class in 1 Round
          15 Total Hours played as Support
This one is harder. The kills aren't, because by the time you get to 15 hours
played, you should be good enough to get them.

Expert - 40 Kills as Support Class in 1 Round
         100 Global Hours as Support Class

This one is hard to get the required kills. But, if you have played for 100
hours, you will get this eventually. Like I said before, you will grow with the
requirements.


Resupply Badges
---------------

Basic - 5 Ammunition Re-Supply in one round.
This is one of the easiest things to get in the game! Just throw ammo bags
anywhere you can and you will have it in no time

Veteran - 10 Ammunition Re-Supply in one round.
          15 Global Hours as Support Class
This one has another easy re-supply requirement. It's just that you need to play
as them for a long time to get enough hours to do this.

Expert - 25 Re-supply 


Meritous Service Medal
----------------------

One of the requirements for this medal is 1000 resupply points. However, you
also need 250 hours, so this is a sinch if you play often as support.

Q. What is your account name?
A. Not telling, sorry.

Q. How do I get Special Forces weapons without buying it?
A. Have a friend who does own it play your account on it.

Q. Is support your best class?
A. No, I just wrote for it because the others were taken. But I have some skill
as one.

Q. Your guide is lacking something..
A. Send what it is lacking in and I can add it.

Q. How do I get better?
A. Practice, discipline and practice. It will take you about 500 kills and 1000
deaths to get decent.

Q. What is the best map for support?
A. It depends what your play style is like and what you enjoy. But usually an
Infantry only server is the best bet as your won't have to deal with any vehicle
threats.

Q. How can I help?
A. By sending in your special tips and strategies to the following address:
triplejumpfaqs[at]gmail[dot]com.

Q. How do I get the MG36?
A. It's only on Special Forces. You have to buy that, unlock the PKM and then
unlock it. If you don't have Special Forces, just get a trustworthy friend to
play on your account in a Special Forces round and whenever you rank up you can
unlock both now (as long as you get the Battlefield weapons first).
