If you are installing for the first time, please refer to the installation article.

If you are updating from the previous version, I recommend re-downloading everything as a lot has changed! You might not need to redownload the vanilla/BFHD map pack, but the Custom map pack and SF map pack definitely need to be updated or your game will crash!

You'll definitely want to download the new Rush map pack if you want to play the new game mode!

Also, if you haven't installed them already, I highly recommend the Shader cache and HD terrain textures!


The classic RUSH game mode from BFBC2 and BF3 comes to Battlefield 2! In this game mode, attackers are tasked with planting bombs and destroying targets throughout the map. Two targets are available at a time. Soldiers on the attacking side must approach the target to plant a bomb. After the bomb is planted, it will explode in 60 seconds. Within this time period the defending team can approach the bomb to disarm it. Once both targets are destroyed, the attacking team moves on to the next pair of targets, until all targets have been destroyed.


When firing machine guns and sniper rifles at bots, they will be triggered to stop firing and run away. This makes them more annoying to kill, but on the flip side, they won't fire back when they are sprinting away - exactly simulating the real-world effect of suppressive fire! This game-changing feature enhances the level of immersion when playing against bots, and also has unique gameplay uses - such as getting bots to run away from defending a Rush bomb site!

In addition, the player's suppression camera shake has been reduced to a more sane level.


The distant sound system has been overhauled with new sound effects and coding to be more immersive than ever! Weapons now much a much more distinctive mid-range sound which is different than their close sound. Many weapons have received new firing and reload sounds, with the machine guns (particularly the MG3) sounding the most different. There's also a new hitmarker sound for a little more feedback when shooting at the enemy.


New muzzle flash



The UI has been updated with new BF4-style fonts and colors. The english localization texts have been updated to improve clarity and reduce visual clutter. In addition, there is a new nametag system, which simulates the spotting mechanic from BF3/4. You can tweak the nametag settings in


The Reshade has been updated to 4.4, which now supports BF2 depth buffer access. What this means is that the MXAO ambient occlusion now works on the environment as well as the first person models!



There are still some glitches because it will draw over UI elements and particle effects, but it looks especially good on soldier models and interiors!

The MXAO ambient occlusion is only enabled on the High setting - you'll need a RX580/GTX1060 or higher to take advantage of this at 1080p. The Medium setting is enabled by default and hasn't changed, so you don't need to update the Reshade if you aren't going to use MXAO. (Press SHIFT+F2 to bring up the in-game configuration menu)

!!! IMPORTANT !!! The new Reshade requires additional steps for installation, be sure to read the installation article for details!

Hello, recently I have been playing the mod eve of destruction 2, the truth is a good mod, but I want to know if there is any possibility of playing the maps of 32 and 64 players in coop with bots, anyone who has played that mod knows that there are maps such as Charlie's point or we were soldiers of 64 and 32 players, but that are not available in coop mode but in conquest mode but in multiplayer, I tried a solution that I had found in a Battlefield 2 forum that said we had to create a Shortcut and in the properties part put this: "C: \ Program Files \ EA GAMES \ Battlefield 2 Server \ bf2_w32ded.exe" + modPath mods / but it didn't help me at all when I considered it intact to apply it. I received a message that said it was not valid, in that same forum I had read something about the need to edit a file that is in the folder of the mod: eve of destruction / settings / maplist.con.
Then within this file I had to change only one line that was next to the map name: maplist.append eod_charliespoint gpm_cq 64
maplist.append eod_charliespoint gpm_coop 64 I changed that cq for coop but nothing happened, the map was not available to play in coop, sorry for being so extensive and for my bad English, but I would like to find some solution to play these maps in coop with bots I would appreciate the answers.

hello guys. I'm having issues with vanilla tiger (A.K.A. eu's attack heli or xpak2_tiger) It was classic vanilla tiger.Stats were normal and heli was reall balanced.At least I tried transfer to the taraba quarrity map. I put all necesarry files into maps object file.And map loaded without any problem.But ingame heli didn't spawn. I search for "Is there a delay timer to spawn it" and answer was NO! Next I tried to go back other maps that got tiger and tried to play it.And its spawned. But and thats is a really big but. Heli got weirdly unbalanced stats.When I press "W" heli reachs 1600 kph and when I try to turn.Helicopter becomes a fidget spinner.And as I remember I didnt changed these stats.I didn't even touched tweak file. Then I check the tweak but everything is normal.And nobody knows how to mod bf2 in my family and they dont play this game. PLS help me beautiful and respectful BF2 modding community!

Hey guys, we are in dire need of talented Battlefield 2 map creators to help us realize Battlefield 1942 maps in the BF2 engine. Our Battlefield 1944 mod is a full remake of 1942 in HD with historically accurate equipment. Basically we are trying to make what Battlefield 5 was supposed to be. Fast paced gameplay with awesome weapon and vehicle models pushing the game to the limits up to modern standards.

We started working on the mod 3 months before Battlefield 5 was ever even announced. We are deep into development now, almost been at it for 2 years now. But we are at the point in development where we need great talented map makers to join our team and help us envision those classic maps with the actual static models from 1942 we have which were ported over to the mod.

We even have a great texture artist who has joined the team from the Battlefield 1942 4K remaster mod named ScureHD who has allowed us to use his amazing 4k textures on our static buildings from 1942. He is also re-texturing our player models in full 4K detail. They will really look quite amazing.

You can see some of his great textures added to our Pacific houses. It really makes the buildings pop.

If you would like to know more about our mod please check it out here. And if you know of any great talented map makers who would love to help us bring the HD WW2 Battlefield experience the fans desired and expected BF5 to be, please send them our way. We need all the help we can get at this point late into development.

You can find us here.
