This is another quick update from the BF2 community pages about the recent patch/booster pack. See the other posts for a compelte list of what has been changed, but here are a few more things:

Here’s a list of additional items to look for in version 1.2:

  • UAVs are now visible in the world so if you are being scanned, you can know about it and take action against it.
  • Rank progression is no longer limited to the enlisted ranks. All officer ranks are now available.
  • Bug that allowed players in vehicles to contest a flag from outside the flag radius is now fixed.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to clarify some confusion stemming from our updates.

The first item is on the topic of grenades. Players will still be able to toss grenades while jumping. Although the ability to fire while jumping has been removed, players will still be able to initiate a grenade toss prior to jumping and follow through with the toss, thereby gaining themselves some extra distance. We understand that there will be some adjustment in tactics required when the patch comes out but we are confident that the community will quickly come to grips with the new tactics.

The second item is on the topic of the booster packs. We have not created the maps as a separate expansion pack requiring a separate server. The booster packs will increase the content of the base game and thereby may be run on a server in regular rotation with the original maps.

Hopefully this clears up any issues you might have had with any of the updates.
