** Also unexpectedly suffered by the Assault class in Battlefield 2, which is meant to be the game's plain combat-oriented rifleman class, only to end up relatively less-played because it's ''only'' good at combat. Several other classes can do that while also having additional useful abilities. When the ''Special Forces'' expansion introduced the game breaking G36E it caused a mass exit from Assault to Medic because the medic heal ability is much more useful than the nerfed grenade launcher. Unsurprisingly later games in the series made sure to give the Assault more useful and unique abilities and equipment, Battlefield 3 eventually decided to combine the two classes into one character to give players choice over which type to use.

Due to its {{Abandonware}} status, ''Battlefield 2'' and ''2142'' are not sold or online anymore, however the folks from [[https://bl2142.co/ Revive Project]] had provided a modified version of the two games for free and also running small but growing group of servers. Playing with bots and mods are still possible though.

** The latter should sound [[MulhollandDrive familiar]] to fans of Creator/DavidLynch.

** The "Market Garden" map in ''1942''. The battle of Arnhem was fought by the British 1st Airborne Division, yet the playable Allied faction of the map is American. For balance reasons, Allies are given tanks and heavy artillery on this map, while in real life the British paratroopers lacked of such support and lost the battle as a result. [[HandWave Then again, if the game didn't give the Allies any support at all, the Axis would have won almost every game played on "Market Garden", leading to an outcry of unfairness]].

** A sizable amount of the entire arsenal of Battlefield 1 are these, admittedly mostly so it [[Main/AcceptableBreaksFromReality still feels like a Battlefield game]].
*** This can be averted in the Back to Basics gamemode, which gives all infantry the standard issue rifles of their army at the time.

* GunPorn: Later ''Battlefield'' games likes to include a huge number of guns, both [[CoolGuns famous]] and [[RareGuns obscure]], all researched, modeled and animated with a high level of detail. ''Battlefield 4'' itself had over 100 guns!



* YouALLLookFamiliar: The ''Battlefield'' games typically only had 3 different faces for each side.
