Speedier BC2 Server Browsing

The Electronic Arts UK Forums offer tips on speeding up server browsing for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, DICE's military shooter sequel (thanks Voodoo Extreme). The post follows.

To help speed up your server browsing these tips can help you get results quicker.

  • Use Favourites/History when possible

If you use the server browser then

Use the server browser
When it starts to search click CANCEL

Select the options:

  • Ranked
  • Not Full
  • Not Empty
  • No Password
  • Leave Punkbuster checked
  • Hit Refresh

You can use your friends list in game to connect on them without accessing the server browser.

Wow, all the rage. Zero problems here.

/edit Now the FRIENDS list, that is a whole new thread. I can't join games from friends list, I have to look what server they are on then go find that server and jump in. There have been lots of mini updates, and each one fixes 1 feature of the browser then breaks another.

We shouldn't complain so much though, they are giving us a lot more than other recent games. (yes you MW2)

I rage because it's such a good game. I'm having more fun in multiplayer than I've had in years, but only when I can get into a good server. I know the problems will get addressed, and I know things are worse in other games. The fact is, I want to play the game, so I'd like it if the obstructions were removed.
