Battlefield Bad Company 2 multiplayer

What a nice step forward this game achieved, here are a few of the reasons I like this game.

The video below from September 2016 and he says people are still playing the heck out of it.

1) SQUADS: Squad game play, and droppable kits like medic, ammo, etc.

2) DESTRUCTION: Destructible buildings. Snipe a tree or shoot a fence to eliminate cover for the enemy.

3) VEHICLES: Helicopters, tanks, etc.

4) MAPS THE RIGHT SIZE: Maps large enough to move around with plenty of avenues to out flank the enemy. From snow to desert, the maps were all very different and all worked well. It was hard to find a map or level that didn't work.

5) SOUND: Great sound effects. Voices, explosions, overall sound including sounds from a distance. Screaming if getting killed, or yelling 'god damn' if shot and wounded. The sounds are impressive.

6) ATMOSPHERE: Great atmosphere and chaotic battlefield environment always pushing to the next objective.

7) EXTRAS: Cool tools like the radar ball you can throw, without going overboard with add-ons. Dropping smoke, shooting a dart at helicopter, tank or other soldier.

8) GAME TYPE: King's Push, which allowed for a variety of maps within one game. This means a round isn't over in 10 minutes and the gamer spending as much time in a lobby as in the game.

9) HUMAN MOVEMENT: Good character movement and rag doll effects. Running and movement is natural as is watching other players move. There's no prone in this game, but not too much of a factor and certainly kept things moving.

10) BACKDROP ATMOSPHERE: Decent backdrop environments, mountains, clouds, smoke from fires, etc.

11) MULTI-EXPLOSION: When a tank, helicopter or other large item explodes, it doesn't just blow up but it's like it has 3 consecutive explosions that add to the massive destructive effect.... awesome.

12) PARACHUTE: yeah you get a parachute that can help jumping from a helicopter, or tall building.



This game set up the successes of BF3 and BF4 which were huge.
