First Strike is a Star Wars total conversion modification for Battlefield 2142. The goal of First Strike is to totally immerse the players into the amazing universe of Star Wars by presenting the most accurate representations of famous Star Wars locales, weapons, and characters, and combining them with exciting, fast paced gameplay and features new to the Battlefield scene. Within this mod you'll find yourself as a soldier of the Galactic Empire or as a freedom fighter for the Rebel Alliance. You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

With the Rebel Alliance growing stronger every day and the Empire spread thin as it is, it's no longer a battle of technological might, but simply a matter of who strikes first...

Features include:

  • Famous Star Wars battles
  • An extremely authentic atmosphere
  • Dozens of Star Wars weapons, vehicles, and soldiers
  • Space battles!
  • Online multiplayer for up to 64 people
  • Co-op & Singleplayer Bot support on a growing number of maps
  • Persistent stat tracking

Greetings Troopers!

Work continues apace on the singleplayer version of First Strike, and we are now approaching a time where we feel ready to release a closed Alpha Test Build to a limited number of people willing to test for the mod.

This is an opportunity for anyone interested in play testing the new singleplayer focused version of First Strike. Before releasing to the public, we want to do some stability testing and get feedback on the new kit loadouts. If you're willing to put in some serious time to battle First Strike bots, then please PM Dnamro to make a request for access to the new version.

Additionally, in other news it has come to light that the Dethklok Clan have managed to make a modification to Battlefield 2142 to once again allow for on-line multiplayer gameplay without the need to log in to the EA Master Server (which no longer exists), this is a massive and positive piece of news which could mean a return to the multiplayer arena for First Strike too. We're currently in discussions with the Dethklok Clan and looking into the implications for the mod, and if this will work for us as well as it works for vanilla BF2142. More news on that development as we have it.

For more details on this subject known as the BF2142 Reclamation, follow the link:

Dethklok Clan: BF2142 Reclamation


Until next time,

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

Hi there, First Strike has a system in place which will auto update your files when we're ready to release. There will also be a full up to date installer too for those uploading it for the first time.

People are playing, you just have to get the timings right, the weekend is a good bet, around 8pm GMT, but just pop on a server even if it is empty and hang around for a few minutes and people will soon come.

I've noticed that sometimes server monitor web sites will report 0 players on a server, and when you join it there are 10 people playing. So go ahead and fire up the mod, you may already have company.

My guess is everyone is playing BF:BC2. That said, it has been quite quiet lately despite that, it is the fact it has been quite a while since a new release, unfortunately some internal matters have caused further delays which have caused us to slip behind schedule with this next release. We'll put an update out soon to let you guys know what's going on.

Stay tuned.

Hmmm, couldn't tell you I'm afraid, I'd assume there is Punkbuster for whatever versions of BF2142 are available, and if so they will also work with First Strike.

Evenbalance has finally come through with a fix for the Punkbuster issue that has been causing people lag on BF2142, and in turn our mod First Strike. It should automatically update, but if it doesn't you can head over to their website to download the pbsetup.exe which you can find here: Punkbuster.com which will allow you to manually update Punkbuster, which I tend to do, to be on the safe side sometimes. Hope this resolves any lag issues you may have been having with First Strike, and we look forward to seeing you in game soon.

How many people play this?

A fair number of people play this, but at quite specific times. Jump on at around 8pm GMT and you'll usually find people on, especially at the weekend during the Community Games. Same time on Saturday and Sunday.

We should see a surge in playerbase once the next release comes out.

When does the new release come out? and how come when I downloaded the installer I only had 2 playable maps?

Curious. Check out our forums for an answer to that one. What I can say here briefly is, did you make sure you were selecting multiplayer and not singleplayer? As singleplayer isn't currently supported in the mod. Go to multiplayer and select local and you can see the various maps on offer in the list that way, and also sample them by selected create server to try them on your own. Try co-op Yavin which features some limited bot support where you can fly against enemy fighters.
