Battlefield Heroes Guide -
This is my first guide. I recently got my beta key and started playing battlefield heroes and like it so much I decided to write this guide.You can get your beta key here
. Some extra beta keys.
Battlefield Heroes is a download 4 free, play 4 free WWII cartoon shooter. It can run on almost any computer. When the official version is released anybody can download it and play it. Their are some characteristics that got passed on from previous battlefield games but not much. This game has a lighter attitude and is not as serious. The respawn time is shorter so dying isnt as frustrating. So far its only 3rd person.
Their are two factions or sides to this game. Their are the Royals
which are supposed to represent the British and then their is the National Army
which is supposed to represent the Germans. Both sides have equal weapons and vehicles so the game is very balanced.
Their are three classes to both side. First their is the commando. He is sneaky, fast and can go invisible, sort of. But he has the least health. He carries a sniper rifle and a knife and a dynamite, which you can put onto jeeps or tanks and destroy them
The soldier is the all around balanced player. He carries a submachine gun and a shotgun. His special ability is to heal himself and others in his proximity. Also carries dynamite.
This is the slowest of all the characters and the most powerful. He has the most health and carries around a mini gun and a shotgun. Compared to others he is really slow. His special ability is to block off damage with a shield for a couple of seconds. Also carries dynamite.
In battlefield heroes their are battlefunds and victory points. Battlefunds are mainly used to customize your character by buying clothes, special abilities and emotes. The level of customization is incredible, the clothes you can buy depends on your character. Emotes are stuff like hand signals and "need a medic" and "need a ride". Abilities include super speed to extra health. Victory points are used to buy weapons. Their are cheap weapons that only last a certain amount of day and more expensive weapons that last forever. Weapons that you can buy include rocket launcher, grenades, and better guns.
Their are three maps so far. They are Victory Village, Seaside Skirmish and Buccaneer Bay
. Victory Village is a close quarters town with only 1 jeep on both sides. Seaside Skirmish is a town by the shore with Jeeps, tanks and planes. Buccaneer Bay is similar to Seaside Skirmish but it has a pirate ship. Arghh!, and similar number of weapons and vehicles.
First of all the vehicles are evenly balanced and they are basically the same for both sides. Jeeps
, their is the American style WWII Jeep for the royals and for the national army their is the Volkswagen Jeep look alike with a dark gray paint job. The jeeps can carry two extra passengers. Tanks
, for the Royals, their is the Sherman tank and for the Nationals, their is the Panzer Tank. Their is a space for a gunner/passenger. When your in a group of three or four tanks your basically indestructible.Planes
, for the Royals their is the Supermarine Spitfire, and for the Nationals their is the Bf-109. People can sit on the wings and shoot off of them. Basically all the vehicles are the same for both sides with different paint.
You win the game by lowering the enemies tickets to zero. By capturing bases and having more bases than the other team you increase the rate at which the other team loses tickets. Both teams start with fifty. The game also spawns you to the nearest allied flag closest to the combat. You can also assign yourself missions like kill 10 enemies in one round to get victory points.
I give Battlefield Heroes a 7/10. It is a light and fun cartoon shooter. It has a very nice and joyful atmosphere. To get the permanent weapons you have to play and win a lot to give yourself some kind of advantage. Also I wish the player can pick where they spawn. So far I couldn't use the first person point of view even though it is a first and third person shooter. When your in a group of three or four tanks your basically indestructible. For a free game, its probably the best out their.
, Surprisingly the game really looks and plays like this
Hope you enjoyed the read.
