Battlefield 2142

has anyone played BF 2142 if you have what is it like i bought it while i was in the falklands not realising that its a online only game

I think its pretty good.

The way you use unlocks etc, is actually quite important in creating the right character. The vehicles are pretty tidy

My favorite Mode Is the Titan mode which adds a different angle, were you really need to play as a team, to take over the enemy Titan.

All in all its a well put together game, mainly due to the experience EA have gained from the rest of the Battlefield series.

Great game, I play it any free time I get on my comp.

It is very team/squad oriented, join a "clan" or whatever they are called nowadays, teamwork will win every battle.
 
#4
Yeah i can recommend it. I find it a bit more better then BF2 due to the rank system and the unlocks etc.. plus titan mode. Also runs better then BF2 more stable.

Will add my wieght to it too. Need a good system to get the best out of it but it has an excellent online play, especially Titan! The add on pack Northern Strike is good too.

Titan Mode is the way to go, especially for newbies to the game to get those all important experience points for upgrade. Go for Assault mode initially, this will give you pretty early access to a 'defeibrilator' which is a quick way to get extra points, same goes for the med pack, drop them around the main bases whenever you can.

Another tip, once your own Titan shield is down get yourself into an APC and fire yourself up onto your own roof, from here you can defend against the incoming troop as they try to gain access to your Titan via the 2 roof top entrances, bags of points to be had if you can stay alive as they are double points for Titan Defence, same goes for attacking theirs but not as much oportunity to get as many points. Once you improve, get yourself into one of those top entrances and wait for the enemy to drop down next to you...like shooting fish in a barrel!

Use the small but fast jeeps to go from silo to silo to get yourself capture points, don't bother hanging around in tanks as you just waste time and you will get taken out by engineers or the attack heli.

I think I need to get out more...

Or just spawn inside your own titan and jump in its pods and pod on to the second back deck. :p

Spawn in your own titan - go either left or right into the side gutters and there are 3 tube like bits - enter one, right click and your out and away in a pod :)

Have just installed it. Good game by the looks of it although i found myself on some 22SASREGIMENT server or so it seems. I do believe there's a need for a 2142 ARRSE clan although someone more 'with it' as far as that game goes can set it up?
