Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon (FHSW) is an unofficial continuation of the famous Forgotten Hope (FH), a Battlefield 1942 modification. We say unofficial since FHSW is developed by FH fans, not the original FH creators. In 2007 it started as a small addon but since then it has grown to be one of the biggest mods of all time!

What makes this mod special is that it adds lots of - but not only - Secret Weapons which saw limited or no action at all during WW2 like jet fighters and super heavy tanks. Some of the maps feature "what-if" battles like a landing operation on the Japanese mainland or attacking a secret German base in the African desert.



Features


  • Over 650 different vehicles at land, sea and air featuring lots of Secret Weapons of WW2!
  • 130 maps, from tight infantry action over pure tank and plane combat maps to full scale naval battles. Or everything at once!
  • 150 hand weapons with new reload and moving animations for all (AT) rifles, bipods for MGs and (reworked) deployable weapons like mortars and heavy machine guns
  • 12 nations: Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Poland, Soviet Union and USA
  • Completely overhauled, more immersive sounds and effects
  • New techniques: switchable ammo, towable AT guns, altimeter for planes, napalm & cluster bombs, bayonets and much more
  • Heavily modified combat to enhance realism while not being overly complicated
  • Unique gameplay: Control the mysterious 1000-tonne tank "Ratte", use the Me 323 to transport tanks to the front line, fly Kamikaze missions against heavily armed Battleships or ... simply take a horse.

Excellent mod I hope more people join to play online, a serious idea to add some countries that supported both the axis and allied countries zur America as Middle Eastern!

No, it doesn't offer AI support at all.
It would take a great effort to add proper bot support to FHSW maps because naturally bf42 bots get stuck at obstacles like trenches and act completely dumb. Because FHSW has a living mulitplayer community the devs felt that there is no need for it and decided to not waste time on AI.

Are there a lot of people still playing this game & mod? I may have to dust my BF'1942 off & play at GameSpy if they still have it...

You can bet on it ;)
Unlike other bf42 mods which have no active multiplayer community anymore, the FHSW community continues to play it with passion.

On FHSW Europe you find 20-30 players on weekends and even some die-hard fans in the middle of the week.

The japanese fill regulary their server (PrinceUmeboshi) with more than 64 players (they hacked it for greater player capacity).
