Battlefield 2 HARDCORE


Battlefield 2 Hardcore (BF2HC) is a gameplay, multiplayer-focused modification for one of the best FPS ever.
This mod is designed to make gameplay more tactical and to bring you new amazing multiplayer experience while still playing good old Battlefield 2.
Same maps, weapons and vehicles but completely different and exciting feeling of the game.
This mod is a perfect balance between realism and gameplay. So let's try it out!


The key features of BF2HC:

  • Increased weapon damage for all firearms and increased damage radius for explosives. Original weapons balance is saved!
  • Improved weapon accuracy in zoomed mode. Bullet ballistics of all firearms is changed in way which makes them as similar to real counterparts as possible.
  • No crosshairs on handheld weapons. Minimap shows only when a player is in a vehicle.
  • Improved balance between aircrafts and ground vehicles. AA-assets can now become a valuable argument in a fight with enemy air forces.
  • The game now requires tactical thinking. Forget about nadespam, aircraft superiority, never-ending spot spam and other things that destroy gameplay. Now you really must be a team player to gain a victory over the battle!
  • More smoke, dirt, tracers, blood and other visual effects to provide you more immersive feeling of the battle.
  • New High-Definition interface textures and fonts that look awesome on all modern monitors.
  • Quick installation process and extremely small size.
Download the latest version:
Battlefield 2 HARDCORE v.2.2


This mod is fully compatible with Battlelog Launcher, BF2ModLauncher, BF2Hub and all maps (official and custom) suitable for original Battlefield 2.
BF2 Hardcore does NOT modify original game files and does not conflict with vanilla Battlefield 2.

Battlefield 2 HARDCORE version 2.2

Greetings everybody, I'm back here! More than a year of playing BF2 Hardcore v.2.1.5 online has brought us a lot of fun and positive experience. It was extremely productive as well, many ideas and balance fixes came up during this time.
I would say we have explored nearly every aspect of BF2HC during our conquest, co-op and infantry-only rounds, and now this mod is as close to perfection as it never used to be.

So the final version of Battlefield 2 HARDCORE is already here. Press the button below to see change-log and to download the mod.

Battlefield 2 HARDCORE v.2.2



But that's not over yet. For your ultimate Co-op experience I'm releasing 18 default BF2 maps with full bot support for all sizes, which means that you can play in Co-op mode on 32-players and 64-players variants of these maps (few maps don't support 16 and 32 sizes though).
Flags, vehicles and spawn layouts are identical to vanilla maps, with the only exception that spawn points on carriers are slightly adjusted to avoid AI deaths on spawn.
There are also two minor changes: at first, on maps with clear weather view distance has been slightly increased. And second, all jets can not be stealed by enemy soldiers anymore.

As always, you can download all maps in Addons section. I recommend you to download Co-op MapPack which includes all 18 maps in one file.

Also, be advised that our Co-op server is still up and running. New mod version and all new maps are already installed there, so I hope to see you all on the battle field. Have fun!

I have some issues while spawning in the singleplayer. I just can´t spawn, which is strange. Can somebody help me?

You probably use some custom maps, because on default vanilla maps everything works smooth.

Hello, thanks for good feedback! Unfortunately I am not a map maker, I don't design my own maps. 2 maps that you can see in addons section were initially made by other people, I've just adjusted their tactical elements.
