So, why are there Russian troops in South America?I don't know, it just seems like it'd be pretty hard for them to get so many boots on the ground in that hemisphere. My guess is that they were building up their forces there and acting in support of their client states. The pentagon probably mobilized to attack and dislodge the Russian troops for fear that those countries would be used as a springboard to invade the U.S itself. Ever notice how in most of the multiplayer maps (besides Port Valdez) the Americans are the ones on the offensive? They want The Russian Bear out of South America, so that's why they're preemptively attacking all of their bases. That, and there's the oil. Well, what do you think?.
The events of Battlefield: Bad Company are part of The Oil WarsOkay, so the game mostly just has you shooting Russians for no real reason, but there is a reason in there. You see, the nations were already trying to take control of the area around the Caspian Sea(hence your trip to Sadiz, the "Diamond of the Caspian", at least, if they had gotten done building it). The Russians you face would have become officers in the military of the Red Star Alliance, and in taking them out now, you are reducing the numbers that the RSA will have. This will help the Western Coalition and enable them to claim victory against Russia in The Oil Wars.
Battlefield Heroes depicts a civil war on an alien planetIt's only a strange coincidence that the pro-republic and pro-kingdom sides of a civil war in a nation on a sprawling archipelago on the surface of a planet circling a bluish sun vaguely remind us of the European theatre of WW2.
America will hire the Legionnaire at the beginning of Bad Company 3And naturally, he'll be hired to have his mercs fill out B-Company's losses so they can keep holding the Russians back in Alaska; Bravo-2 will spend a significant portion of time with their hands over their faces praying the Legionnaire never looks in their direction, until Sweetwater suggests that, since they keep getting pulled into crazy spec-ops crap, they run with it and just wear balaclavas all the time. We then get Deconstruction as their balaclavas make it harder for them to understand each other and turn out to be uncomfortable for extended periods of time. Hilarity Ensues when a passing officer assumes they are uber-badass and orders them to be the Legionnaire's personal guard.
It got worse because the Legionnaire has full control of the Russian ArmyBecause it's pretty clear he was a major reason for why the US was having a hard time in Europe, and B-Company made it personal.
The cutscenes are lying: Marlowe and friends are wearing hi-tech combat suits.Four people, with reasonably high clearance to classified intel, holding off dozens of Russians in suicide missions with no specops training? BS. Yeah, it might be Acceptable Breaks from Reality, but it's cooler to think Bad Company are wearing cool suits of armor instead of boring normal gear. For some reason, it's EMP resistant, which is why B-Company still has HU Ds when the Scalar weapon goes off.
World War III is going very very badly for NATO.Though this is strongly implied, it is never outright stated. The war that started in Bad Company 1 has been steadily escalating, and has finally spilled over into a full-scale global conflict - one that America and her allies are losing.
A future Battlefield: Bad Company game will see you driving Truckasaurus Rex in a climactic battle against Russian and/or Legionnaire armorExactly What It Says on the Tin.
