BF2 Point of Existance 1.7 release
I love this mod.......a lot of new stuff added including Mortor kits.

1.7 releases on July 20th

Again, if you are still playing vanilla BF2, then you aren't really playing the game.

Ok Torak, I downloaded POE and its is a beautiful looking mod.

A few questions for the noob though, are there other weapons available other than the intial weapons? If so, is it still reliant on my unlocks from the vanilla game?

No it is not reliant on vanilla.

There are other "kits" in POE but they are pick up kits. Look around when you first spawn in. The are rocket launchers, heavy machine guns, sniper rifles, anti air missiles and now Mortar kits. A word of warning though, you drop whatever kit you currently are when you pick them up. So if you play an engineer a lot and pick up a mortar, you are not an engineer anymore, its not just the weapon you get.

By the way, the patch today loads the U.S. forces into POE, I missed that lol.

I'm suckin tonight, the download sites are all full, I can't get into anything that will let me download it.

Maps
- Berezan Island
- Blue Nile 2
- Crimea Beach
- Assault on Odessa
- Red Dawn
- Risen
- Olesko Castle

Vehicles
- US AAVP7A1
- US AH-6 Littlebird
- US AH-1Z Super Cobra
- US M1A2 Abrams... woot!!!


Note the POE M1A2 is slightly different then vanilla
.:US - M1A2 Abrams
- This tank has some of the meanest audio attached to any vehicle with it's imposing growl. The Abrams comes stacked with 39 heap and 39 sabot rounds making it an absolute menace on the ground. Couple that with 2 gunner positions, one a 50 cal machine gun, the second an M240 machine gun (thats the loaders hatch M240 NOT the coax so it takes a crew of up to 3) and this will be a very strong battle platform for the US. With the recent changes to how vehicles repair one another, expect to see 2 engineers operating those guns. With teamwork, an Abrams will outlast any other tank on the battlefield.


- US F22 Raptor
- US F/A 18E/F
- UKR W3W Sokol
- UKR Su-27 Flanker A2A & Multirole variants

Hands Weapons
- GER DSR-1 Sniper Rifle
- US KaBar Knife
- UKR Mortar
- US M16A4 Assault Rifle
- US M249 SAW LMG
- US M4A1 Carbine
- UKR PKM Pickup kit

Stationary Weapons
- US M167 VADS
- GER FK20mm Flak
- AT4 Spigot ATGM

Armament
- XM312 Grenade Launcher
- M240D HMG
- M224 Mortar
- T89 Mortar

Yeah I realized I need to get in a few practice rounds before I jump into a full PVP battle. Might as well have painted a bullseye on me though did get a few kills with the RPG.

Bah, just go go go...everyone sucks at first Its the nature of the beast in shooters. it takes time to learn all the maps. Heck, I still haven't played on all of them yet. Use vehicles at first until you know your way around the maps. Tanks are awsome in POE. You have different types of main gun rounds. HEAT rounds you use on bunkers or those guys hiding in building becasue they are explosive and SABOT on enemy vehicles. The Ukraine heavy tank (T-84?) has some sort of TV guided main gun round. Your camera actually travels to the target and you can guide it just a little bit if you are fast. I try to use it sometimes lol, if you actually hit with it, it usually kills.

I generally play vehicles here and Infantry on "Project Reality".
