Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII is the second expansion for the hit game Battlefield 1942. It lets you control lethal experimental weapons from World War II. Straight from Allied and Axis laboratories, many of these weapons never saw combat until now. Defeat your enemies with a variety of experimental firepower, including the Wasserfall Guided Rocket, the Natter Rocker Plane, and the revolutionary Rocket Pack. Drop from a cargo plane behind enemy lines and prepare for close combat with one-shot-kill knives, new machine guns, and more. Give all of these weapons and vehicles a trial by fire on eight new battle maps.
