Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam[edit | edit source]

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, the United States Army fights the NVA. They do not use a specific set of infantry weapons, but they use their own vehicles. The soldiers' voices are provided by Trevor White and Ryan McCluskey.

Engagements against the NVA[edit | edit source]

The US fights against the NVA on maps based on real-life operation. With Operation Hasting being a remake of a level.

Image Map
Nammp006-phubai.jpg Phu Bai Valley: In an all out clash in this swampy valley, both teams have the full arsenal of vehicles and will be dealing with longish range combat on the roads but denser close quarters in the buildings and flags. The rice patties will keep the soldiers full but the battle will never fill the war.
Nammp003-hill137.jpg Hill 137: Hamburger Hill is appropriately named in this medium ranged map, as the whole side of the hill is now a flaming killing floor. Infantry combat will sizzle up with close quarters trench warfare and longer range light jungle warfare. Occasional boat support will also help.
BFBC2V Cao Son Temple Native Background.png Cao Son Temple: This ancient temple now serves as a new battleground, isolated on an island, away from the war. While one team spawns near the temple, it is both of their duties to take it on this close quarters map. Naval support from the middle flag will help decide the victor though.
Nammp002-vantage.jpg Vantage Point: A hill stands in the center of this symmetrical map, providing a (appropriately named) vantage point over either side. Close quarters defines the hill while medium to longish ranged combat defines anything within sight of it. Vehicles are restricted to ground and tight movement lanes.
Nammp007-operationhastings.jpg Operation Hastings: The jungles guard this river from all sides. A large bridge spans the entire river giving an excellent vantage point on this long rangish map. Vehicles will do their best to try and combat anything that stands in their way.

Vehicles[edit | edit source]

The US Army in game uses the appropriate vehicles of American origin in the DLC.

Battlefield 1[edit | edit source]

The United States emblem as it appears in Battlefield 1.

This item has a Codex entry: The United States

The American Expeditionary Force is featured in Battlefield 1.

Singleplayer[edit | edit source]

The 369th Infantry Regiment, known as the Harlem Hellfighters, appear in the first chapter of the singleplayer campaign, Storm of Steel. The Harlem Hellfighters are outfitted with the Adrian helmet due to their attachment to the French Army.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

The United States appears as one of six factions initially featured in Battlefield 1, and is part of the Allies alongside the United Kingdom, France, and Italy. They wear British uniforms and insignia, with drab tunics and beige webbing with minor changes, with headgear comprised of either the cloth "Overseas cap", a wool soft cap oddly sporting the badge of the British Tank Corps (identical to that worn by Townsend), or a green version of the more durable British-designed Brodie helmet, or even the experimental Model 8 full-face helmet.

The American Expeditionary Forces participate only in battles against the German Empire on the Western Front of northern France.

Vehicles used by the US Army include 75mm M4A3 Shermans and 76mm M4A3E8 tanks, T34 Calliope rocket artillery and Staghound T17E1 armored cars, in addition to Mosquito and C-47 aircraft. The force's emplaced weapons consist of PaK 40 anti-tank guns, Flak 38 anti-air guns and Vickers heavy machine guns.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

Main article: United States#Battlefield V

The US Army also makes a minor appearance in multiplayer as part of the United States Armed Forces faction added with War in the Pacific. Certain vehicles are marked with US Army designations, implying the force is involved with the faction along with the United States Marine Corps and US Navy.

In addition, the United Kingdom-based Allied faction makes use of many US Army-related cosmetic items in-game, including the explicitly named G.I. and Yankee outfit sets, which are based on United States gear. Some items such as the Pit Crew, Flim-Flam and Wild Eagle outfits have US infantry Markings on them, with the latter two sporting the 101st Airborne Division insignia. In addition the Death In The Afternoon torso includes a 2nd Infantry division insignia.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Battlefield: Bad Company 2[edit | edit source]

  • In Bad Company 2, some soldiers in Multiplayer will shout "Let the bodies hit the floor". This is a possible reference to the song "Bodies" by Drowning Pool.

Battlefield 3[edit | edit source]

  • Although the US Army does not appear directly in Battlefield 3, the multiplayer "Ranger" and "Paratrooper" Appearance schemes reflect real-life US Army camouflage patterns (Universal Camouflage Pattern and MultiCam respectively), giving the player the appearance of an Army soldier.
  • They are not featured in Battlefield 3 or Battlefield 4, as those games focus on the Marine Corps instead.

Battlefield 4[edit | edit source]

  • In Battlefield 4, a camouflage pattern called UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern) can be found, which is a uniform pattern used by the US Army.

Battlefield 1[edit | edit source]

  • The US Army voiceovers in Battlefield 1 are done by Jared Zeus.
  • With "Standard Issue Rifles" enabled, the United States faction is issued the M1903.
  • The US flag used to capture objectives only has 48 stars, as Hawaii and Alaska only became states after World War 2.

Battlefield V[edit | edit source]

  • In The Last Tiger, US soldiers will speak German when the player is close to death. This is possibly because they have no "player wounded" voice line of their own and so revert to German voices used in other War Stories.
