Battlefield Bad Company 2 PC Beta Footage

There's a clip on the YouTube showing off about 10 minutes of footage from the Battlefield Bad Company 2 PC Beta in a very smooth clip in spite of using high quality video settings. A variety of gameplay situations are demonstrated along the way, including firefights, using explosives, repairing tanks, reviving teammates, driving vehicles, and more. You can also view the clip below.

wish they had picked a better map for the beta.

map isn't bad but I'd like to play conquest mode, especially given this ability to essentially squad hop and spawn on any squad member.

will the whole map be accessible in conquest mode?

Looks bad ass. First video I've seen that wasn't obviously capped from an xbox. I'm in. But, is all the fucking cursing something you can turn off? I'm big on swearing, but I don't need my computer loudly barfing "FUCK" and "SHIT" out every 10 seconds.

What is going on at 8:45 when the chopper flies _through_ the building?

Looked good until I saw that just like Battlefield 2, it takes and entire clip to kill someone at point blank range.

This was one of the biggest problems with BF2 but was over shadowed by hacking.

No one should be able to withstand more than 1-3 bullets at this close of fighting.

After playing the game for a few hours over the last couple days, on both PC and 360, I can guarantee you that "taking an entire clip to kill someone at point-blank range" is certifiable bullshit.

You are one off the lucky ones then, as it has NOTHING to do with skill.....some of my kills take 2 bullets, some take (no better way to say it) more than it should.....

Sniping I find at the current state of the game is lame, unless you have 2 snipers shooting at one guy, as the sniper rifle sucks for it's current range, and it highly ineffective. All one needs is a medic drop near by and it can be impoosible to kill them with 1 sniper round.

Maybe you have a better connection with less lag, less loss, etc etc etc. but the general consensus is that it takes too many shots to kill.

That statement could be interpreted either way. Which did you mean?

I agree that if you have good ping and a high framerate that it definitely only takes a few shots to kill someone, however there seem to be hit detection problems in less than optimal situations.

There was a lot of spray and pray in that video. It was tedious to watch the guy running after people with his trigger mashed. When he settled down to light people up with a couple shots, I thought they died appropriately.

Yeah the game is a blast to play and considering it's still in beta that's good news. DICE has certainly received a lot of feedback about it taking a whole clip to kill, which is true more if you are moving (as you point out) than if you are still. Also consider that soldiers in this fictional future probably wear body armor.

The destructible environs are great. Also the dynamic voice call outs are a nice innovation because they apply to what is happening. Unlike in BF2 where you had to manually do them (which had some advantages).

DICE is to be congratulated. Gets me pumped about BF3.

All that said, there are a lot of outstanding bugs and requested features and I don't think DICE has time to fix since they need to go gold probably next week, unless they delay the PC launch. Maybe that's a good idea.

I'm just glad PC gamers are finally learning to appreciate console-standard networking and graphics. Glad you guys finally came around.

^ There are many levels of depth to that reply.

Personally I do think learning to enjoy games for what they are is great, but I'm kind of surprised PC gamers aren't more disappointed with BFBC2 so far.

re: the weapons- I don't think I've ever played a game by DICE where the weapons were balanced any differently than they are here. As you level up you get different weapons....some might be more effective with your type of playing, others won't be. I can tell you the first level weapons in BC1 sucked as well. Just concentrate on taking the objectives rather than on your body count....oh, and DO NOT play lone-wolf. it'll take you longer to level plus you can spawn on teammates in the field. You'll enjoy the game a lot more that way.

Anyone else sick of these modern warfare type of games? Just like when it was all WW2 games getting pushed out. Now it's these modern warfare games. Yawn. Not to mention this was doesn't even look that good considering it reminds me exactly of Battlefield 2 with some updated graphics. Hell even the body physics look exactly the same. Sorry, maybe I'm just tired of the FPS genre and hearing explosions everywhere for the ambiance sound. Starcraft 2 can't come soon enough...

After playing the game for a full day I will have to pass. It has mediocre graphics, the game play is pure run and gun, no lean, no prone, and now no mod tools. Sorry DICE, but I'll pass on this one.

I have to agree here. The control didn't feel all that great, the gameplay was mediocre, the gap in gun power is huge, and in general it just wasn't very good.

I know a lot of people are looking for anything to grasp onto after MW2 screwed over the PC. This just isn't it.

Sure, the game has some influences from MW/MW2 but to me it's more Battlefield than MW2. Also it takes some ideas from Crysis with the jungle theme and destructible scenery. Why aren't you guys harking on it's Crysis influences? While Crysis is a failure for MP, it had some great ideas, just mediocre execution (low performance, hax, bugs).

Are you saying that it should react instantly and let you bounce around the map like a rubber ball, aka Quake3? I think that's the game's strength is that they made player movement more realistic and that you can't spin on a dime and aim a heavy weapon with exact precision. Also you guys hark on taking a full clip for a kill but maybe they are wearing body armor which is reasonable. I think DICE will probably increase bullet damage because of all the negative feedback so that's not that much of a problem.. Instead of nit picking and trying to find faults, look at the bigger game.

I think that you guys are being a little hard or judgmental, jumping to conclusions before the final game is even here.

I'm gonna wait till release day so I actually get the media, you all have fun with the beta. I don't think waiting till BF3 will make me any happier with the Battlefield series overall. How would that possibly be less of a console port than this one?

Open beta = pretty much the final game. I don't think I've ever seen an open beta where its feedback was implemented in the final game.

I've seen DICE implement community feedback into BF2 and BF2142 patches.

One map. The beta has one map and one gameplay mode and it has no single player. True though that the game has to be going gold in the next week or two because it takes ~30 days to press the discs and ship to stores. So you might be right as far as how finalized it is.

So it's possible that DICE is using the current beta to squash critical show-stopping bugs, or maybe they are delaying PC release (which I think is needed). But in the last patch they did fix a more minor issue with the 'enter map' button, which was not critical but an annoyance.

I just looked at the recent screenshots and indeed the player models show them wearing body armour. Sorry, you probably can't kill seven people with one clip of ammo unless you can head shot seven times in a row.

Yeah, because PC games are never patched, especially on release day.

That said I have never played in a beta where a dev has ever listened to gameplay specific feedback. Bugs yes... gameplay no.
