Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game is a direct sequel to Battlefield: Bad Company and was announced at one of Electronic Arts' earnings conferences and was showcased for the first time at E3 2009. The game was released worldwide in March 2010.
The gameplay in Bad Company 2 is primarily a squad based first-person shooter. Similar to previous titles in the series, the game is played out on large maps with vehicles, aircraft, turrets, unmanned aerial vehicles armed with hellfire missiles, and so on, but the majority of the game is based around infantry combat. Players can score points by performing a variety of tasks that do not involve directly engaging with opposition players. For example, the "engineer" class can score points through the repair of various equipment and vehicles, or the "medic" class can do so by healing his squad and reviving recently killed players. A key gameplay feature introduced by its predecessor, Bad Company, is destructible environments. The improved system is called "Destruction 2.0". It now allows players to completely demolish a building with sustained explosive firepower, resulting in the building becoming a pile of rubble and killing any trapped inside. The game also includes bullet drop, a feature previously seen in single-player games such as the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, which causes bullets and other munitions to fall downwards due to gravity.
Along with Battlefield Vietnam, Bad Company 2 is one of only two games in the Battlefield series to show blood without third-party modification. Bad Company 2 features 15 vehicles, including new additions, such as the UH-60 Black Hawk, a quad bike, a three-man patrol boat, a personal watercraft, a ZU-23 mounted on a BTR-D armored personnel carrier, and a UAV helicopter controlled via remote computer terminals. The Mi-24 attack helicopter, dating back to Battlefield 2, has now been replaced by the more capable Mi-28, while the original is reintroduced as a transport helicopter, much like the Black Hawk.
The currently available maps are set in various environments from South America and the mountainous regions along the borders of Russia.
