  • Stay outside the map border forever!

    This glitch allows you to stay outside of the map forever, where you should normally hear the "Where do you think you are going soldier..." message.

    You can do this with a friend for example by making a squad together. What you do is this: The squadleader goes out into the red zone where you hear the previously mentioned message and you spawn in on him. You can stay outside the map forever. Have your friend die and leave the squad so you become squad leader and let him spawn in on you. Now the two of you can stay outside and never die from the out of bound penalty.

    (Only works on earlier patches)

  • Unlock Special Weapons (Version 1.0.0 only)

    Locate the file "" located in <Drive Letter>Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\python\bf2\stats (or whereever you installed Battlefield 2, in the folders \python\bf2\stats), and open "" with Notepad.

    (Before you open, you should make a backup of the file "" (just copy and paste the file) and rename the file to

    Now you should see a whole bunch of codes. Press CTRL+F and find the word "defaultunlocks" (without the quotations).

    this should highlight the line of code

    defaultUnlocks = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

    change all the "0"s to "1"s, so it looks like

    defaultUnlocks = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1]

    and now press CTRL+S to save.

    Note: this only works for single player, this trick works for multiplayer, however, EA Games will ban your CD-Key for a week if they discover you are using this for multiplayer. So just replace the unaltered backup file of "" for multiplayer and vice versa.

  • Get special forces unlockable weapons for the core game

    As you know you may purchse unlockable weapons in special forces for use in core Battlefield2. However you need not own special forces in order to use these weapons in the core game.
    Simply log onto a friends account from the special forces log in screen, play 1 round of any map that was included in special forces, then logout of that acount and log back in, you will then be able to choose 1 if not several unlocks from the selection screen, though to unlock the special forces kits you must have already unlocked the previously unlockable one, (for instance, you cant unlock the scar-l for the spec-ops kit if you havent unlocked the g36c). After choosing your special forces unlocks, you can then log unto any computer with BF2 on it, and use your special forces unlocks in the Core: BF2 game with out having to buy special forces!!!
