In this section, you'll find descriptions and analyses of every vehicle in Battlefield 2142. They have been tested with regard to armament, number of seats, main tasks during the battles and other significant features. There are also strong and weak points of vehicles, their pictures and which side uses particular machines.

Analyses of each vehicle type are divided into three parts. The first one contains general information about advantages and disadvantages. Highlighted fragments of the text say about the most important features.

Second part mentions buttons, which may be useful while sitting in a particular mean of transport.

The third and the last one concentrate on the weak and strong points of the machines. There is information about how many damage a particular anti-armor weapon does. The highest values are marked with a highlighted text. This will clearly show where the vehicle should be attacked and what weapon should be used. I hope this will make struggles including armored machines a bit easier.

Vehicle description:

Battlewalker is a brand new type of vehicle in the Battlefield game series. As you can see in the pictures above and conclude from the name, it has two legs. It has two seats. First player steers the whole machine and uses anti-personnel guns and an anti-armor bombs launcher. The second crewmember fires anti-aircraft EMP homing missiles and bullets from a gun mounted on top of the battlewalker's turret.

Battlewalkers are able to walk in a steep terrain and at the bottom of every water reservoir, natural or anthropogenic. Moreover, they're able to walk over low obstacles like boxes, concrete ledge and other vehicles.

Battlewalker is the heaviest machine in the game. There is no other vehicle, which will win with it in a duel on a medium distance. Numerous advantage, air strikes and engineers/tanks attacking from a long distance may be dangerous for a battlewalker.

The greatest disadvantage of that machine is the fact that the turret rocks while walking, and that makes accurate shooting from anti-personnel guns impossible. The pilot has to stop before opening fire. Anti-armor bombs are sometimes quite inaccurate even while standing. Their working fine on a medium range (15-40 meters).

It is also worth adding that the vehicle may stick in narrow passages, for example between trees, and damage itself seriously.

Other important disadvantage is that sometimes the pilot doesn't know how legs are turned in relation to the turret, so he may go not exactly there where he wants.

Controls:

If you want to accelerate, hold [Shift]. This forces the vehicle to move its legs faster, so the speed increases.

Battlewalker can also squat down (button [Z]). Although it may look interesting, it is not so important on the battlefield, because the machine in such condition cannot move, so it's an easy targets for soldiers equipped with anti-armor weapons. It may be useful only while hiding behind a low barrier.

During the fight, the pilot can turn the Active Defense system (button [X]), which makes the vehicle invulnerable for a few seconds.

At long range a tank can take down the walkers easily, or damage them severely and close in for the kill, if the tank driver is patient he can get great shots by aiming to the inner side of the legs, the splash damage adds up to the bottom vents helping bring down the walker faster.

stfu bf 2142 is the best game ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unlike stated in this guide, the pilot is actually aware of which direction the legs are turned relative to the turret. There are two indicators on the screen, one white, and one which is colored (EU = Orange, PAC = Green). The white is where the turret is turned, and the colored is where the legs are turned.

Agreed the vents underneath the walker are very weak even small fire arms take it down quickly

way coolll

Indeed renegade, it takes 1% damage per shot from even a pistol

Cool! I was always aiming for the legs and wondered why it took so many shots to kill it. Well.. we all learn something new sometimes!

How do you take down these things?

When you are under the battlewalker you can see ventilation shafts. If you hit these with one shot of your rocket launcher the walker will be destroyed. Its quite a risk to get under te walker unseen but its the only way to destroy the walker in on shot
