Patch 1.3 for Battlefield 2 Released

Battlefield 2 is going into its 8th patch with the release of BF2 version 1.3. The new patch will have new features and also addresses various bugs to make gameplay better. Some of the improvements to the game were in direct response to gamer requests and complaints. The GamerNode staff thought the bug fix for helicopters was the best.

According to EA,s official BF2 website:

New Features:

  • Co-op: Players can now enjoy single player levels on Internet and LAN play with both Bots and human players. We have added a few options to allow the server admin to modify how the bots behave in game. Co-op play is not permitted on ranked servers.
  • Air Dropped Vehicles: Squad members can now send a request to commanders to drop vehicles at their location.

Bug Fixes & Gameplay Tweaks:

  • Ban list will no longer be wiped in the event of a server crash.
  • Abandoned helicopters will no longer remain in flight.
  • If a player joins a squad while dead they will not be permitted to use the squad leader as a spawn point until they have spawned at a flag once.
  • Flag Capture bar will now react accurately to players entering the capture radius.
  • Friendly vehicles will no longer appear as valid targets for missile systems. The box with the X through it will still appear however the locked tone will not sound and missiles fired will not track the friendly target.
  • Fixed the crash that sometimes occurred when switching between game types.
  • Fixed a tech hang when creating a single player account from an offline account.
  • Fixed Issues with remote console and Linux servers.
  • Fixed the issue that prevented players from ranking up in-game when playing on their regular server.
