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.

FSDev Dnamro PM

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!

Hey guys,hi,I am really interested in this mod,but I have serious issues with trying to install it.I have original BF2142 Deluxe edition which is 1.40 version by default,but when I try to patch it to 1.50 or 1.51 it says that it already uses higher version,thus preventing me from playing First Strike,any help would be much appreciated.

Hola, podrían poner antes de que dejen este mod y se vallan al motor ut4 un tutorial de como hacer para poder seleccionar las diferentes armas dentro de la pantalla de selección de kit, tal y como esta en su variación FS:SP, sería un gran aporte para la comunidad de modders. Gracias.

Hi, sorry but for the moment i can't traslate in english (i am on a travel and write from my cellphone), and my grammar is bad. Sorry for my bad english.

Buenas Dias,

Actually, I am working on an update to the mod that will focus on singleplayer that fixes the kit selection issue with offline accounts, in addition to other things. I expect to have a public Beta release before the end of the month. It will integrate FSX/FS_SP. I will post a news post soon. I have posted some info in the First Strike forums.

En realidad, estoy trabajando en una actualización para el mod que se centrará en un solo jugador que corrige el problema de selección del kit con cuentas fuera de línea, además de otras cosas. Espero tener una versión Beta pública antes de que finalice el mes. Integrará FSX / FS_SP. Voy a publicar un post noticias pronto. He publicado algo de información en los primeros foros de la huelga.

As Dnamro has mentioned below, the cancellation of the EA Master Server makes things difficult as you need to log on to play. However there are ways around it. Disabling your internet to play is one. And as noted below, running BF2142 via Gameranger and then using the community tab to launch First Strike also works.

Here is a link which goes into more detail:

So I can just disconnect my PC from the internet and then I can play?

Singleplayer mode only (obviously I guess since you're playing off-line), this is just to prevent the need to log in to the now non-existent EA Master Server. When it can't log on it'll ask if you want to play in off-line mode. Apparently you can do this without disconnecting from the internet in some cases, it just takes a few minutes for the game to realise that it can't connect, and then will give you the same option as above. There is also a default account you can get to work if you never had an active account back while the server was still up. There is a link to that somewhere around here too, but you might not need it. Just try off-line first and see what happens.

If you can't launch the mod directly, launch BF2142, and then get into First Strike via the Community tab.

Be aware, that the First Strike mod only works now in singleplayer. It should be possible to play coop on a LAN, but that has not been tested since the death of BF2142.

Sorry you missed the opportunity to play the mod online, as not all maps were able to be made singleplayer before EA killed BF2142 and we moved onto the Unreal Game engine.

I am working on a big update to First Strike to improve the singleplayer support and add all the best maps from the First Strike Extended Singleplayer mod.

I hope you didn't spend much for the game, because the only way to play it online now is on GameRanger, but unlocks don't work anymore. There are not many decent singleplayer mods available. 2142_SP allows full singleplayer support for all the maps with unlocked weapons and abilities. Titan Lite allows titan gameplay in singleplayer, but the bots can't board the titan Ships - instead they capture the missle silos which attack the Titan ships. The Zombie mod, Omnicide is also a good singleplayer mod.
