Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Get ready for a whole new war, as DICE's massively popular online shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 makes the journey back to the 60's and the infamous Vietnam war.

At the heart of this expansion lie four distinct, brand-new multiplayer maps based on the Vietnam War. Each map brings a new gameplay experience and fresh visuals, with characteristics such as foxholes, tunnels and dense jungles from where the enemy can launch surprise attacks. Also, 15 classic Vietnam-era weapons and 6 vehicles are available from the moment you go online.

All four multiplayer game modes from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, including the genre-defining Conquest Mode, will be playable in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The expansion is integrated with the full game persistence, so no matter what theatre of war you participate in, you will continue to level up your soldier as usual.

  • 5 Brand New Maps: From the rice fields of the Phu Bai Valley to the napalm scorched earth of Hill 137, five distinct Vietnam-based maps each bring a fresh visual and gameplay experience
  • 6 Immortalized Vehicles: Skim the treetops in the iconic American helicopter. Drive the sturdy Russian T54 tank and the nimble US PBR "Pibber" patrol boat, plus three more vehicles immortalized in the Vietnam war.
  • 15 Characteristic Weapons: Charge into battle with 15 new weapons modeled on their real life counter-parts, including the rare Navy SEAL XM22 machinegun and the characteristic M79 "Blooper" Grenade Launcher.
  • Rocking 60's Soundtrack: Listen to 8 radio channels in-game, featuring 2 hours of time typical tracks, including "Ride of the Valkyries" and "Fortunate Son" by CCR.
  • True War Dialogue: All-new voiceovers for both American and Vietnamese forces, based on authentic communication from the Vietnam War.

  • System Requirements

    4.0 out of 5 stars Tough, worthwhile expansion to Bad Company 2 January 9, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I have Bad Company 2 on Steam. When I purchased the Vietnam expansion on Amazon, I simply entered the code in the Bad Company 2 main menu and Vietnam was activated without any problems. All of the content for Vietnam was apparently in the last huge patch for Bad Company 2. Vietnam is multiplayer only so those looking for a single player game have been warned. Overall, Vietnam has a different feel from BC2. The maps are huge and open, each of them are unique. There are five multiplayer maps total and all of them take place outdoors. The jungle experience and scenery is captured perfectly in this expansion. I found myself getting shot by Vietcong in rice paddies and facing intense close combat fights on jungle paths. The downside to the openness of the maps is that you will have to deal with a lot of snipers, more so than in BC2.

    There are about four unique weapons for each class and the perks attained in BC2 (magnum ammo, extended mags, vehicle upgrades) are available to use. Shooting and aiming with the weapons is more difficult with just iron sights as scopes have been removed (except for sniper rifles) as well as UAVs and other high-tech equipment. It seems like the weapons do more damage also. Its pretty intense when you are facing RPK machine guns and "thumper" grenade launchers in the jungle with a beat-up M-16. This game just feels gritty and realistic.

    I'm enjoying this expansion, its much more challenging and realistic than BC2 and requires a fair amount of skill and teamwork. I definitely recommend it if you liked Bad Company 2.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Better than BC2 January 26, 2011
    By Fred
    I actually like this expansion pack better than the original game and find it difficult to go back to the regular BC2 game any more. Why? Because the weapon hit detection is much better in the expansion, much more like BF2 or 2142, plus different weapons that are fun to play with. More than anything though, with the maps, the hit detection being correct, and the additional weapons, it's just more fun to play than regular BC2. Oh, and no annoying Gustov spamming. There are RPGs, but they're so slow and have so little splash damage they're hardly ever used on infantry which is a welcome change from Gustov and noob tube spamming. Lastly, the Huey's fly well, not at all like the ones in regular BC2 that handle like boats...and did I mention flame throwers? :)

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money in the long run. August 3, 2011
    By Me
    Verified Purchase
    This Vietnam expansion for BFBC is fun and all, looks good and everything.
    But the reality is that no one plays it, so with it being an online only expansion, you gotta have the other players for it to be fun, but when I played it, I was lucky to find anyone.
    Just my personal opinion, use your money for something else, don't waste it on this.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Breath of Fresh Air January 15, 2011
    well sadley i ordered this from gamestop.com which they charged me a ridiculos 4$ "download Insurance" as they called it. But for anyone whos a fan of the battlefield series an has been playing bad company 2 for a while, the expansion definitly adds some fresh air. no single player but battlefield is all about the multiplayer anyways. great dlc. all good maps except for one. all in all if you have bfbc2 buy this expansion.

    Side note: I still perfer the original bfbc2 multiplayer but i tend to enjoy urban more so thats jus me.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Vietnam add on June 21, 2011
    By Artz 3
    Verified Purchase
    I've had to play this game all by myself without enemies ever since I downloaded it. There is no one else on line to play with. I actually prefer the single player games, and thought I'd have this option. I guess not. It looks like it would be fun if you had someone to play against.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed January 29, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    Unlike some other reviewers I like the original maps in BFBC2 better. In most of the Vietnam maps sniping seems like much more of a problem than in the original maps, even though the weapon gadgets, like scopes, were apparently cut back to try to reduce it. It may also be that the hacks are all on the new maps with their aimbots. So be prepared to die a lot, even if you're no longer a noob on the original maps.

    It is difficult to find players but it totally worth it. If you like Bad Company 2, you should try Vietnam DLC as well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Looks and runs good. February 14, 2012
    By Casey
    Verified Purchase
    Well, I was pretty pissed because the code wouldn't work on Steam, then I read a review and they said you need to do it in-game. So before you freak out (like I did) go into the actual game, go to Vietnam, and put the code in there. Works like a charm. The graphics look great and the gameplay is smooth. Everything seems to be going fine. The only problem I have is finding games with people in them. I've been placed in two different games by myself. After I figure that out, I'm sure it'll be fun.
