Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Media Shows Limited Edition Multiplayer 'Day One Advantage'

EA has released new Battlefield: Bad Company 2 screenshots and a trailer showing off six of the multiplayer unlockable items in DICE's squad-based shooter, which will be available off the bat in a 'Limited Edition' costing the same as the regular release.

The limited edition will be available for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 "while supplies last" when Battlefield: Bad Company 2 hits all three platforms on March 2, 2010.


Players who end up lumbered with the regular edition will presumably still be able to gain the unlocks--detailed below--the old-fashioned way by ranking up in multiplayer.

Four vehicle warfare unlocks
  • Improved Vehicle Armor - An up-armor package is mounted on all vehicle types, decreasing the effect of both explosive and penetrating warheads, significantly improving vehicle survivability.
  • Supreme Vehicle Firepower - Additional weapon packages are mounted for the driver of all armored vehicles, greatly expanding the range of targets the vehicle can successfully engage and destroy.
  • Vehicle Motion Sensor - Use this electronics warfare package to locate enemy units in direct proximity to the vehicle.
  • Tracer Dart Pistol - This magnetic dart attaches to any vehicle surface, allowing squad members to track, lock on, and fire rockets onto moving targets even beyond line of sight.
Two classic Battlefield 1943 weapons
  • M1A1 Submachine Gun - Reliable but heavy this classic weapon is a powerful force in the hands of any Battlefield veteran.
  • M1911 Pistol - Highly customized M1911 are favored for its dependability and the power of its large .45 caliber round.
