Help Unlock a Map in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam – The Battle for Hastings

Eduardo Vasconcellos's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, Bioware

On December 21, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will arrive on the PlayStation 3 with the low, low cost of $14.99, adding some great new gameplay to an already fantastic shooter. You may already know that this expansion comes with new weapons, new vehicles, and four new maps, but what you may not know is that one of the most popular maps from 2004’s Battlefield: Vietnam will also be included in the bundle.

The fifth map, Operation Hastings, will add a new avenue for PlayStation gamers to show their superiority on the Battlefield featuring everything that makes BFBC2 Vietnam amazing: tanks, Jeeps, temples, boats and helicopters all in an environment featuring a distinctive bridge that separates the map into two main areas. Though, it’s not as easy as all that. It’s entirely up to you to unlock this fifth map.

To unlock Operation Hastings, we’ve decided to start up a new community challenge for all of our fans dubbed The Battle for Hastings. To unlock Operation Hastings, our entire audience will need to perform 69 million team actions within Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam. While this sounds like a daunting task, we’re sure our PlayStation 3 fans can handle it, as these actions include resupplies, revives, heals, spots and repairs, allowing for plenty of avenues to achieve this goal.

Get ready to jump back into the Battlefield on December 21, and we’ll be counting the support actions until you unlock Operation Hastings for the entire world to enjoy.

It says in the blog both bad company 2and veitnam. Look forward to playing the expansion pack. Well worth the 15 dollars. I think I’ll spend the extra 10 dollars to finally get the on slaught mode.

this is great i love these challenges keep things interesting expecially since this doesnt add any single player would of been nice to maybe expand on the storey and make more use of these vietnam era weapons/maps. but i understand dice is always on a race vs time to complete things example no more add on content to best selling downloadable game battliefield 1943 :( add ons to battlfeild bad company one and the only half the crew effort of online to medal of honor u have my 100 percent support on any battlefield that being said please step it up an add more depth and compelling moments!

Whoever designed this bit of marketing deserves a raise.

“Help” appeal for the win.

Does the unlockable map, Hastings, support like 64 players, or at least more than a standard map? It looks huge and sometimes I feel I have to look forever for someone to frag. I realize war is not simply people lining up to be shot, but…you know what I mean?

I’m enjoying BFBC2 but I have a friend who plays the Recon class & he says that most of the bullets that successfully hit enemies fail to do any damage. Is this a known problem with this game?

I call dibs on the all-powerful tuk-tuk vehicle. It will dominate the battlefield. Can’t wait.

SpeedRacer1955 said:

This is like BF: 1943 and unlocking the Carrier Map by getting a specific amount of games played or something like that… Yeah that Tuk-Tuk looks like and explosive icon…

Looking doo, but will this be enough to pull people (Myself) away from Call Of Duty: Black Ops (And for 360: Halo Reach?) Hopefully this is really packed full of content and game modes.

The best FPS this year is MAG.

It’s a shame you guys aren’t playing it.

Do you have to have the regular battlefield bad company 2 to play the new vietnam?

The expansion pack looks amazing! I love the gritty, grimy look to the battlefield. Can’t wait for this to come out!

hi im new to ps3 and xbox 360 is pissing me off with my BFC2 and it constantly freezes so im going to ps3 and getting BFBC2 and the vietnam expansion of course the ps3 won’t allow me to cross game party chat but oh well cause all my freinds on xbox are mean.

footballrule said:

December 4th, 11:12 am

@32 I don’t agree. It was a nice idea wih 256 players and man was it super fun when I was in the Beta, but it needed single player. Whats going to happen to MAG after it loses even more players? It’s too hard to get in a game as it is, and everyone knifes which isn’t very fun. :/


December 4th, 11:47 am

hey i need help i got EU version bc 2 and i want the new dlc but i cant get EU psn cards so what if i buy US dlc will it work? thx

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:
