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

Mod of the Year Awards

Greetings Troopers!

It's that time of the year again, and the ModDB Mod of Year nominations are upon us once more. And this will also be our first MOTY under our new leadership, so let me hand you over to FSDev Dnamro as he lets you know just why First Strike is still a contender, and invites you to go out there and cast your vote for First Strike!

It's been a tumultuous year with EA dropping support for many of their older titles including BF2142 which has effectively killed the First Strike mod as a multiplayer game. However in this past year, the team released the First Strike 1.6 update which featured four brand new maps including the long awaited space boarding map Parmel Invasion, an impressive map which features space combat from cruisers down to starfighters, and for the first time integrates this with FPS infantry action on the same map as soldiers repel boarders and defend the space station at the heart of the map.



In addition to this there was Silver Station, a space based conquest map.

The community map which became Nesmazzda Conflict, which had the added
bonus of being co-op/singleplayer ready right off the bat.

And a little later the prison complex map set on the planet Dathomir.

Unfortunately, by this time most players had abandoned BF2142 as well, resulting in poor turn out. GameRanger managed to save BF2142, but this did not support mods such as First Strike.

With the death of the multiplayer side of the mod, the team decided to join forces with the Battlecry team to develop a free Star Wars game on the Unreal 4 Engine.

The team has been busy working through the issues of converting First strike to the Unreal 4 Engine. With a 10 year age difference between game engines, there is a lot of updating that has to happen, which makes for a slow process. All the textures have to be redone and many models will have to be updated as well. FSDev TALON has been hard at work in his spare time converting First Strike assets for use in Unreal 4, and has even been working on new material not yet seen in First Strike which will make its debut in the Unreal 4 Engine, and we have a preview for you of this work below.

The First Strike mod, however, lives on as a singleplayer experience, as work-arounds have been found to enable the game to continue with offline support. In fact First Strike is currently being revamped with the focus being on singleplayer with a beta release expected before the end of the year.

There are some exciting developments in the works for First Strike, keep your eyes peeled for the next news update for more on that. But until then, your votes will determine the future of First Strike. So go out and vote, and give us feedback in the forums or on the ModDB site.

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

That's the problem we're having to deal with. Unlike BF2, BF2142 never made it to Steam, digital copies were only ever available through Origin, so once EA dropped their support for it and stopped selling it, they have effectively taken it off the market. The only way you can buy BF2142 now is through second hand resellers, which sucks for us big time.

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:
Moddb.com

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.
