Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII is the second expansion, of two, to Battlefield: 1942, developed by Digital Illusions and published by Electronic Arts. The expansion brought more focus on completing set objectives with several new and experimental weapons from World War II. This led to a more varied gameplay experience and provided slight changes to class load-outs. Although the new weapons were a major part of this expansion, two new factions were also included the British Commando and the German Elite Troops, instead of just the Allied and Axis Forces.


[edit] New Weapons & Vehicles

These new experimental weapons which existed as newly created weapons or just abstract ideas at the time are the major benefit of this expansion. They offer a well balanced boost to the available weapons, as a whole. The machine gun equipped motorcycles allow swift gunning while the Sherman tank, based on the Russian T-34, provides massive destruction power with rocket launchers but a very limited source of ammunition.

[edit] Weapons

There are seven new weapons available from the expansion.
