Genre: First-Person Shooter

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is the sequel to the original Battlefield: Bad Company. Bad Company 2, utilizing a newer version of the Frostbite engine, enables players to destroy any objects in the map (almost 90%) and deform the ground with explosives. The engine also gives bullets travel time and drop over distance, though this is mostly only noticed with sniper rifles. This game released in the U.S on March 2, 2010. A preorder package came with instantly unlocked unlockable weapons and vehicle upgrades, including the Thompson M1928 Submachine Gun, Colt M1911A1 Pistol, Tracer Dart Pistol, vehicle Armor Upgrade, vehicle Secondary Weapon and vehicle Motion Detector. Some retailers also offered the AKS-74U in addition to these.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam is an expansion pack for the original game that takes place during the Vietnam War. It was released in December 2010 as a multiplayer-only DLC and requires BF: BC2 to work.

The following guns can be seen in the video game:



The vast majority of the guns in-game are mirrored, have the ejection port on the left side of the gun even when the player character is right handed, which would interfere with a shooter in real life.

All weapons have only one reload animation, and there is no tracking of +1 chambered rounds; unlike the the first game, whose singular reload animations always involved racking the bolt, Bad Company 2 reload animations go the opposite way and never racks the bolt.

The first level of the singleplayer campaign, "Operation Aurora," is set in WWII. Many of the weapons in that level are recycled from Battlefield: 1943, and are generally unusable in multiplayer or unusable by the player at all.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2


Can be used by any class once unlocked.

Beretta M9

The Beretta M9 is a standard semi-automatic pistol. Had a correct 15 round magazine in the Beta, but reverted to the incorrect 12-round mag for the full game (the same thing happens in Medal of Honor 2010's multiplayer, also from DICE). As of the current R7 patch, its damage has been increased to reflect the in-game stat difference between it and the MP-443. One way to explain the 12 round mag and higher damage than the 9mm MP-443 is DICE has instead dressed up a Beretta 96 as the M9. In addition the hammer is never shown cocked, even when fired, as if it were double-action only.

MP-412 REX

The MP-412 REX .357 Magnum revolver is the most powerful, but slowest firing and lowest capacity handgun in the game. The reload animation depicts the gun with a no automatic cartridge extractor.

Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is instantly unlocked for players who pre-ordered Battlefield: Bad Company 2. With its .45 calibre round, it has the second highest damage of the pistols, beaten only by the MP412 REX using .357 Magnum rounds. Labeled "WWII M1911 .45" in-game. It is incorrectly portrayed as firing from an uncocked hammer (and it doesn't change at all, even the first round has been fired or the gun's slide has been pulled back while reloading), which is required for single-action pistols like the M1911A1. Unlike most weapons in the game, it is correctly modeled with the right side ejection port. This is because its model is from Battlefield 1943, which features proper right-handed weapons, and the uncocked hammer comes from that game too.

MP-443 Grach

The MP-443 Grach appears in the game and has a 17-round mag, the highest of all the pistols, as well as the second lowest damage, the M93R being the lowest. In single player, this pistol is the only one available; Marlowe acquires one from Redford at the end of the mission "Upriver", and holds onto it for the rest of the game, while NSA Agent Aguire also carries one of his own.

Beretta 92FS Inox (mocked up as Beretta 93R)

On the weapon info screen the Beretta 93R is actually a modified Beretta 92FS Inox (due to the slide mounted safety) with an 20-round magazine, larger trigger guard, extended barrel with compensator, and a folding foregrip. In-game however, it is the same model as the M9 but with stainless finish, 3-round burst, and, though not visibly different, a 20 round magazine. In the kill feed it was formerly incorrectly called the M9-3, this was later fixed to call it "M93R Burst".

Tracer Dart Gun

The Tracer Dart Gun is a non-lethal weapon used by both Russian and American forces. The tracer darts it fires grants lock-on capabilities to allied Engineers using the RPG-7 or Carl Gustav launchers. Unlocked by default on all pre-ordered copies, but can be acquired through experience for those who did not pre-order. Unlike in the original Bad Company, the Engineer has to lock on the target by looking through the scope of the rocket launcher for a few seconds at the tracer point. After it locks on, a distance will be given. The Engineer is then free to fire in any direction, and the rocket will home in on the target. It is also capable of tracking and locking on while embedded on enemy personnel instead of vehicles.

Nambu Type 14

In the first singleplayer level, Operation Aurora, Watanabe is seen using a Nambu Type 14. Like the other WWII weapons, its model is recycled from Battlefield 1943, though it is unusable by the player in Bad Company 2.

Submachine Guns


The Uzi appears in the game and is equipped with a suppressor. It has a very high rate of fire, more akin to that of the Mini Uzi.

M1928 Thompson

The M1928 Thompson appears in the game and can be set to any class' primary slot once unlocked and is instantly unlocked for players who pre-ordered Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It is incorrectly identified as "WWII M1A1 Thompson" in-game when in-fact it is the M1928 model. The gun uses the same model from Battlefield 1943.

It should be noted that when the player character reloads the weapon, he inserts the magazine incorrectly. Instead of using the channels on the mag catch for the magazine to slide into, he inserts it in a similar way to an AK-47 magazine, even though it isn't possible to insert a Thompson magazine without using the channels. Also, triggering the reload animation will have the bolt force itself closed before the player immediately pulls it open again as the first step; while not technically incorrect due to the gun being an open-bolt design (although doing this step first was only strictly necessary when using drum mags), this will also cause an empty casing to eject from the gun, even if the magazine was emptied.

The older version of the PP-2000 appears in the game equipped with a suppressor and is incorrectly referred as the "PP-2000 Avtomat" ("Avtomat" is the Russian term for Assault rifle or Submachine gun, but nowadays it is more used for Assault rifles or Automatic rifles). Magazine holds 40 rounds despite being modeled with the 20-round magazine. It fires at 1000 rpm, faster than any other weapon in-game except the MG3.

Heckler & Koch UMP45

The Heckler & Koch UMP45 appears in the game equipped with a suppressor and a Picatinny rail below the handguard.

Assault Rifles

Automatic Rifles are split between Carbines for the Engineer Class, and Assault Rifles for the Assault Class. All the assault rifles are equipped with an under-slung grenade launcher, capable of firing standard grenades, or either smoke or canister flechette rounds.


The 9A-91 is the starting carbine for Engineers. Fires the 9x39mm round, has a 20 round magazine and is equipped with a suppressor.

Heckler & Koch XM8 Compact

The H&K XM8 Compact equipped with a suppressor is a available weapon for the Engineer Class. Has the highest rate of fire of all the rifle-caliber carbines available to the Engineer.

The AKS-74U is instantly unlocked for players who pre-ordered Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Equipped with a suppressor. Referred to as the "AKS-74U Krinkov" in-game. Oddly, in the weapons info screen it has black plastic furniture, but in-game it has wood furniture. This is because the version in Bad Company 2 is simply a reskin of the original Bad Company's AKS-74U, in which it had the plastic furniture.

The FN SCAR-L CQC assault rifle is the first unlockable weapon for the Engineer in multiplayer. Equipped with a suppressor. When firing bursts of automatic fire, the weapon ejects casings at a faster rate than it fires and cycles. This is probably due to it reusing scripts from Battlefield: Bad Company, in which it had a faster ROF.

Called "AEK-971 Vintovka" in the weapons screen, the AEK-971 is the Assault's starting Assault rifle. Used as the main weapon of the South American militia in Single Player. Equipped with the GP-30 40mm underbarrel grenade launcher.

Heckler & Koch XM8

The Heckler & Koch XM8 is an unlockable Assault Rifle. It is used with the XM320 Underbarrel Grenade Launcher. In Campaign mode, it replaces the M416 as the signature weapon of B-Company. Redford and Marlowe use ACOGs, while Haggard uses a Red Dot Sight, though Redford and Haggard's optics are always present in gameplay, they only sometimes appear in cutscenes, while Marlowe's is always there (except in the tanker cutscene).

Heckler & Koch HK416 D10RS

Referred as the M416. Apparently in the Bad Company universe, the Heckler & Koch HK416 weapon has been adopted by the US Army, thus the M416 designation. A well-balanced and versatile rifle, the HK416 is popular in multiplayer and can be outfitted with standard assault rifle attachments, such as a red dot sight, 4x scope and underslung M203, capable of firing flechette, HE or smoke rounds.

The AN-94 ingame is permanently set to the two-round burst mode, but incorrectly fires at the full-auto mode's 600 RPM instead of the burst mode's much higher fire rate. Equipped with the GP-30 40mm underbarrel grenade launcher. Used by the majority of Russian soldiers in single-player.

Colt M16A4

The M16A4 rifle is an unlockable assault rifle and correctly fires in 3-round bursts. Note that it's erroneously referred to as the "M16A2" in the game. It can be fitted with an ACOG scope, red dot sight, and M203 grenade launcher as described below. The Bad Company 2 "M16A2" differs from the original "M16" that was used in the first Bad Company in multiple ways: a 30 round magazine size instead of the 50 round size, a correct three-round burst mode instead of being fully automatic, and options of multiple weapon attachments (as is the case with most weapons in Bad Company 2). It requires 47000 Points to unlock, and is the last unlock in the "Assault" kit.

Steyr AUG A3-CQC

The Steyr AUG A3-CQC appears as the "STG.77 AUG" in-game. This name is the official designation of the Steyr AUG in the Austrian Army, however the A3-CQC variant seen here was never adopted.

FN F2000 Tactical

The FN F2000 Tactical is an unlockable assault rifle, called the "F2000 Assault" in the game. It is always equipped with the FN GL-1. It fires at a comparatively high 850 rpm compared to other assault rifles, but its report makes it sound as if it fires faster.

Battle Rifles

Can be used by any class once unlocked.

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand can be unlocked by registering as a Battlefield "veteran" (i.e. registering at least one other Battlefield-series game). Called "WWII M1 Garand" in-game. Can be set to any class' primary slot. Another weapon carried over from 1943, and hence has correct right-hand ejection and charging handle. Oddly, the image for the weapon in the weapon info screen is the in-game model of the Type 5 rifle (which is itself based on the M1 Garand model).

Heckler & Koch G3A3

Simply called "G3" in-game, the G3A3 has a 20-round magazine and full-auto fire capability. Can be set to any class' primary slot. Also, despite claiming to be unlocked at Rank 26, players really unlock it at Rank 22, the first officer rank. One of the very few weapons other than sniper rifles and belt-fed machine guns to have correct right-hand modeling.

MK 14 Mod 0 EBR

The Mk 14 Mod 0 EBR (Enhanced Battle Rifle) is an unlockable weapon in multiplayer. It is incorrectly called "M14 Mod 0 Enhanced" in the game and has a desert-tan camo paint. Has semi-auto only firing option and can be set to any class' primary slot, has a 10 round capacity despite what it says in the description. Has a right-hand bolt, but ejects to the left. The related original M14 appears in the Vietnam expansion pack.

Type 5 Rifle (M1 Garand mock-up)

Reused from Battlefield: 1943, the M1 Garand modified to stand in for the rare Japanese Type 5 Rifle is the standard weapon for the Japanese forces in the single-player mode. It has the clip latch which the Type 5 lacks, and functions in an identical fashion to the M1 Garand, complete with using en-bloc clips instead of the real weapon's stripper clips.

Unusually, the game allows the weapon to be reloaded partway through an en-bloc clip by using the clip latch. There is no model for an empty or partially fired clip, so regardless of how many rounds have been fired the Type 5 is always shown ejecting a completely full clip at the start of the reload animation, in contrast to the Garand's clip, which is always shown as empty.

VSS Vintorez

The VSS Vintorez, In-game identified as the "VSS Snaiperskaya Special" (rather redundant, as VSS stands for "Vintovka Snaiperskaya Spetsialnaya" or Special Sniper Rifle. Essentially, the game identifies it as a Special Sniper Rifle Sniper Special.) Modeled with 10-round magazine, but carries 20. Fires full auto only, while the real VSS is select-fire.

Machine Guns

Available to the Medic class.

M249 SAW Paratrooper

The M249 SAW Paratrooper is called the "M249 SAW" in the game. Has a 200 round belt. As in the previous game, it has an M249-E2 heat shield.

Heckler & Koch MG36

The Heckler & Koch MG36 is called the "MG36" in the game. Has a 100 round Beta-C Mag. It's aimed using the Export version's 1.5x reflex sight, usable even without the Red Dot specialization. Using the 4x Scope spec. with this give the default optic some zoom. Before a patch that was released a few months after the game's release this weapon was basically unusable in Hardcore mode, as the sight's aiming dot was bugged (did not show up) in that mode. Apparently, it was accidentally considered a HUD item that shouldn't be displayed (Hardcore features a minimalistic HUD) in that mode.

Heckler & Koch XM8 Automatic Rifle

The H&K XM8 Automatic Rifle is called the "XM8 LMG" in the game. Has the same magazine as the MG36. The in-game description incorrectly states it comes with a built-in scope, when in fact it will only have a scope if one is equipped by the player as an attachment.

Can be used by any class once unlocked. Can be equipped with extended magazines or loaded with slugs once either are unlocked.

Remington 870 MCS

Called "870 Combat" in the game. The Remington 870 MCS has a four round tube as standard, eight rounds with extended mags. It is always modeled withe the longer magazine tube. First unlocked shotgun.

Franchi SPAS-12

Called the "SPAS-12 Combat" in the game. The Franchi SPAS-12 has the same magazine tube sizes as the 870 MCS, and operates only in pump-action mode. Judging by its barrel length, it is the compact variant. The description states that "it's been in service for over 37 years"; with the real SPAS-12 having entered service in 1979, this suggests that the game is set after 2016.

The TOZ-194 is available in the PS3 and PC beta, but only usable in Single Player in the full game. Has a 8-round mag capacity, a slug version can also be found in single-player, although the slugs seem to explode on impact, making it quite useful as an accurate "power weapon".

Rocket/Missile Launchers


The RPG-7 is the standard Anti-Tank Rocket Launcher used by Russian Engineer class. It is an unguided direct-fire weapon, but it can somehow also be used as a guided rocket launcher using Tracer Dart Gun. It is fitted with a PGO-7 scope.

Pansarskott m/86

The Swedish Army version of the M136 AT4, the Pansarskott m/86, appears in-game. It has a (incorrect) built in tracking system, and is thereby not compatible with the Tracer Dart Gun. The reload animation is the player throwing away the launcher and grabbing a new one from his back. This means that the Engineer can carry up to 8 AT4's on their back if the extra explosives perk is chosen.

Carl Gustav M3

The Carl Gustav M3 is the Anti-Tank recoilless rifle used by the engineer class. Like the RPG-7, it can be used as a guided rocket launcher using Tracer Dart Gun. It is erroneously referred as the M2 model, which is distinguished from the M3 model by its lack of a carrying handle.

Browning M1919

The Browning M1919 only (and incorrectly) appears in the first level as a mounted machine gun used by the Japanese.

A variant of the Browning M1919 developed during World War 2, this model is designated the M37, with the ability to feed from either the left or the right of the weapon - 30-06. This example is shown without a tripod, only the pintle mount. This is the MOST likely .30 cal machine gun to be seen firing from armored vehicles.

Norinco QLZ-87

The emplaced version of the QLZ-87 was originally found only in the single player game. In an update on the 8th of June, it was added to the multiplayer stats section, and was added to multiplayer proper with the Onslaught DLC, where it appeared on the Atacama Desert and Isla Inocentes maps.

In an update on the 8th of June, the standalone XM307 has been added to the multiplayer stats section, and has been added to the game in Map Pack 4. In the stats section it is incorrectly named an XM306, but in the killfeed it says XM307 like it should.

Submachine Guns


The PPSh-41 is available to the Engineer class. Called "PPSh" in the game. Despite being modeled with a 71-round drum magazine, the in-game weapon is a re-skin of the UMP45 from the base game, and thus has a paltry 25-round magazine capacity, and slow rate of fire but deals a decent amount of damage per shot.

Ingram MAC-10

The MAC-10 appears as "M10" in the game and has a unrealistic 40-round magazine capacity, due to it being a re-skin of the PP2000 from the base game.

MAC-10 - .45 ACP

The M1928A1 Thompson is also present as an all kit, WWII vintage weapon in the game. It functions the same as well, save for looking a little worse-for-wear.

Assault Rifles / Battle Rifles

Colt Model 715

The Colt Model 715 is issued to the Assault Kit. It can be identified by the brass deflector and modern forward assist. It has been modeled with a three prong flash hider and a triangular handguard. A similar configuration can be seen in the film Operation Dumbo Drop. It is called M16A1 in-game. Has the highest rate of fire but the slowest reload among the assault rifles (though the charging handle animation can be canceled). It also has a 30-round capacity despite being modeled with a Vietnam-era 20-round magazine.

The AK-47 appears in the expansion as an other usable assault rifle. It is very popular in the game due to its high damage and moderate accuracy. The model appears to be derived the AK that appears in Medal of Honor (2010)'s multiplayer.

Dubbed an assault rifle in-game, the M14 is fully automatic in the expansion, it has the highest damage but the slow rate of fire and a 20-round magazine. Referred to as "M14 Assault".

M1 Garand

The bonus WWII-era M1 Garand from the base game is also available in the Vietnam expansion. It is all kit and functions much the same.

Sniper Rifles

Norinco NDM-86

The Norinco NDM-86 is used by the Recon class. Holds 10 rounds and has a stronger default scope than any other sniper rifle in the game. It is incorrectly identified as a SVD in-game when in-fact it is a Norinco NDM-86, a .308 version made in China, using straight magazines. This particular model would be anachronistic, and was probably shared from Medal of Honor (2010)'s multiplayer.

M40 Sniper Rifle

The M40 Sniper Rifle is the most powerful non-explosive weapon in the game capable of killing anyone in one shot to the head or chest. Its only drawback is the 5-round capacity and slow (bolt-action) rate of fire. The rifle is incorrectly portrayed with a 5-round detachable box magazine instead of the internal magazine; this is because it is another weapon model shared between Bad Company 2: Vietnam and Medal of Honor (2010), specifically the M24A3 in MoH's multiplayer.

Remington 870

The Remington 870 Shotgun appears as "870 Combat" an is the only usable shotgun in the expansion. It has wooden furniture and no accessory rails, and does even higher damage at close range than in the base game.

Machine Guns

Stoner 63

The Stoner 63 in the Commando (or Mark 23) configuration is called the "XM22" in the game. The designation is technically incorrect, since XM22 designates the Stoner 63 in the rifle configuration. It feeds from a 100-round belt box that holds 200-round in gameplay. Possibly in order to fit the animations of the M249 from the base game, the Stoner has the Mk. 23 horizontally mounted belt box, but feeds from the left side instead of the right, and retains the Stoner's original side-mounted charging handle instead of the underbarrel one. It also lacks the belt cover that would be attached to the Mk. 23's box holder.

The RPK appears with an incorrect 100-round drum mag (should hold 75 rounds) in the expansion. It has the fastest reload time among the light machine guns. Due to this being nothing more than a model replacement for the base game's PKM, spent brass is seen ejecting to the left side, right through the receiver cover instead of through the ejection port. Due to a bug, the rear sight and bipod are missing on the first person model except during its reload animation.

MG 34

The MG34 is mounted on NVA T54 tanks and GAZ69 trucks. Its use by the Communist Vietnamese forces is actually historically accurate, as they received MG 34s from the USSR and China as aid, and the French also brought many examples into the country during Vietnam's prior war for independence.

The M79 grenade launcher is issued as a gadget to the Assault kit. It is the equivalent of the 40mm Grenade Launchers from the base game. It can be decked out in a tiger-stripe paint scheme as seen in Apocalypse Now.

An error is that the reload animation doesn't involve removing the casing, making the grenades appear to be caseless.

M9-2 Flamethrower

The M9-2 is a powerful weapon issued to all kits. It has a limited amount of fuel (300 "rounds"), but this allows a continuous spray of fire until it runs out. It doesn't have a reload animation. Any spare gas will be instantly loaded if the reload button is pressed.

The same scaled-up TS-50 anti-personnel mine from the base game is available to the Engineer class as an alternative to the RPG-7 and serves as an anti-vehicle mine.
