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!

The First Strike team has decided to continue the mod on the Unreal 4 game engine to develop a free stand-alone Star Wars game -- and the best way to do that is to join forces with the BattleCry team. Both teams are committed to developing a game that fans will love to play. The First Strike team has many maps and models that just need to be ported, while the Battlecry team was already working on basic game play, so it just made sense to work together. We are all excited on the possibilities that we can unleash with this new engine by teaming up together. 

Below is a cracking illustration put together by a member of the Battlecry dev team (Jo Greve) to mark this momentous occasion;

With that being said, we have also decided to wrap up development work on BF2142 in order to focus on moving to the new game engine. A final update will be released soon with the singleplayer kits changes. We will also post unfinished work, to include Hoth, and all the developed AI meshes separately in the event that a work around is found for the loss of Master Account Server and someone wants to continue the mod for BF2142.

So this marks the end of an era, and our association with Battlefield 2142, but the start of a brand new and exciting one embracing not only a new engine in Unreal 4, but a new and vital amalgamated team. Exciting times ahead indeed. 

See you out there on the battlefield Trooper!

I think I found a bug.

The accuracy on all my guns except the DH-17 Pistol and Se-14r Pistol are the amount of accuracy you get as if I'm moving forward at full speed (not sprinting) even though I am stationary. And it wont go away until I restart FS 1.6.

Heres a screenshot with me standing completely still:

This affects all the weapons; The rocket launchers, the blaster rifles, the carbines, even the shotguns! but the worst is the Packard Mortar Gun (as pictured).

We have a forum thread on the First Strike forums just for bug reports. We monitor those forums much more frequently.

Disregard that Bug I thought I found.
Turns out it was my Xbox controller left joystick ghosting! (i cannot figure out how to increase deadzone in this game)

I checked the forums and there was nothing on the topic which was too suspicious given the age of the mod so i decided to try and find the cause one more time. And success.

I found'em on Gamefront. Every one of them crashed. (loaded up but crashed as i pressed deploy) One of them wouldn't even extract lol

I would've even tried if they hadn't been made for a previous version of First Strike but it was worth a shot.

The SP mappack is posted on the First Strike forums. This works with First Strike proper now. This is a collection of 2412 conversion maps as well as some maps created for First Strike but not part of the official multiplayer maps. They all work in SP and Coop.

Yeah, I don't think they're compatible since it got integrated into the official mod properly. Most of the maps from that are now in the mod as the singleplayer portion, plus the AI support is much improved since the SP Minimod. If you have First Strike 1.6 you should be able to play singleplayer, you just have to do it off-line due to issues with the EA Master Server closing down, as mentioned in the latest news update.

You'd have to ask Dnamro about that, but I think that disappeared when it officially became part of the mod proper as co-op/singleplayer support. Though I think it might still be available somewhere as there were a few maps that we didn't feel were appropriate to officially add to the mod.
