These games are notable for being [[TropeCodifier among the first]] to make large-scale use of mobile vehicles in an FPS game, as well as using large maps. The games are designed to be played in multi-player mode. The earlier games had no 'single-player' campaign, only multi-player missions with bots. For games set in 'reality' these maps and missions recreated important battles in ''1942'' and ''Vietnam''. ''Bad Company'', however, changed this, coming with not only a cohesive, new storyline, but a group of notable characters that stuck with you the entire game, with their own distinct personalities and voices.

* RevolversAreJustBetter: The strongest handgun in ''Battlefield 2142'' is a revolver with 8 shots that can be upgraded to hold 10. It also reloads by removing the entire cylinder. This is really a moot point though, as there are only two handguns in the game, and the EU just has higher power, lower ammo capacity weapons than the PAC in general.
** Played straight in ''Bad Company 2'' with the MP412 Rex, which can drop an enemy in just a couple of shots. The flip side is the slow rate of fire and low ammo capacity.
** [=BF3=] has both the aforementioned MP412 Rex and the Taurus .44 Magnum.



** All of the installments set in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII give Japanese soldiers the Type 5 rifle, a clone of the American M1 Garand. In real life, only about 250 of them were produced, and none of them were actually used in combat.

** It's definitely possible to be this when playing in solo mode against bots in ''Battlefield 1942'' thanks to well-placed ambush sites and the AI's limits.

* OneManArmy: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] throughout the series. Pretending to be Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and trying to win the war by yourself WILL get you killed in very short order, not to mention pissing off your teammates in multiplayer mode.
