Introduction
1942: Axis and Allied forces are heavily involved in World War II and the fighting
has extended to four fronts: North Africa, the Pacific Theatre and hundreds of
miles of frontlines in Eastern and Western Europe. As a newly-recruited soldier,
your assignment changes on a moment’s notice – gunner, pilot, bombardier – and
the scenery changes with it. Storm ground bunkers in the North African desert of
El Alamein or position your battleship off the black sand shores of Iwo Jima. Run
silent under the waters off Midway Island or drop your payload over key supply
routes along the French-German border.
With up to 32 players in a single battle, you’ll need to keep your wits about you.
All military vehicles are at your disposal from tanks, armoured personnel carriers
and battleships to the P-51 Mustang and the U-boat.
We brought you the war, now it’s up to you to fight it!
• For more information about this and other titles, check out EA GAMES™ on
the web at www.ea.com
Note: See enclosed Install Guide for Technical Support information.
Complete Controls
The incredible variety of gameplay in Battlefield 1942 puts you at the controls of
tanks, jeeps, battleships, water transports, submarines and aircraft. You can also
gut it out in the trenches with nothing more than a rifle, pistol and a knife.

Single Player Campaign Play
Maverick blood runs through your veins and Single Player Campaign gets it
pumping by handing you orders for 16 different missions inside the 1942 theatre
of operations. Fight for either the Allied or Axis forces, either way the action is
intense. Both sides are populated by soldiers commanded by Strategic Artificial
Intelligence (SAI).
All elements are combined in Single Player play – planes, boats and tanks – so
don’t let your guard down for a minute. The next bullet coming out of that bunker
just might have your name on it.
Select the difficulty level, battle and your allegiance, then track your battle stats as
you go.
Start a New Campaign
Click SINGLEPLAY from the Main menu, and choose CAMPAIGN, then click
the NEW CAMPAIGN tab to start a new Single Player Campaign.
Note: Default options are listed in bold type.
Difficulty Level EASY, NORMAL, HARD and IMPOSSIBLE categories are
defined by three components: AI Skills, Player Death Ticket
Penalty and Enemy vs. Friendly Units Ratio. The higher these
ratings, the higher the difficulty level. Click and drag the
indicator on each slider bar to make adjustments to each of the
settings. Adjusting the slider bars is the only way to set the
IMPOSSIBLE difficulty level.
AI Skills determine the fighting ability of non-playable characters (bots).
Player Death Ticket Penalty determines the number of tickets you are penalized
each time you are killed during a mission.
Enemy vs. Friendly Units Ratio determines the number of troops in a battle for
each side.
Number of Bots determines how many non-player characters populate each team,
friendly and enemy. Note: Lower-end machines should try
lowering this value if the frame rate is poor in single
player mode.

managing the AI. The higher this value is set, the more it
impacts game performance. Note: Lower this value to get
better frame rate if you are playing on a lower-end machine
with few bots, or to get better AI performance if you are
playing with many bots.
Levels. The Levels window shows all available maps. Only the first map is
displayed when you are creating a new campaign.

Click START after all of your selections are made.
Continue a Campaign
Progress is automatically saved in Single Player Campaign Mode only after a
battle is won. Your Profile is updated to reflect your progress.
Note: Your side does not have to win the battle in order to advance to the
next level.
To continue a campaign:
1. Click the CONTINUE CAMPAIGN tab on the Single Player menu. The next
level in the campaign is chosen automatically.
2. Click CONTINUE to begin the level.
Campaign Scoring
In every battle, there are victories, defeats and the stories that go along with those
who live to tell them.
Kills: number of
enemy killed
Deaths: number of times
you were killed
Hits: number of
shots on target
Medal: gold, silver and
bronze for 1st, 2nd or
3rd place
Ping Rate: your
average connection speed
The Debriefing Screen appears at the end of each single-player battle. It explains
the outcome of the battle and shows your battle stats. Fight with valour and you are
recognised for your achievements. Medals are awarded for first, second and third
place scoring. Battle honours are displayed to the right of your individual statistics.
When you finish a mission while playing in Campaign Mode, you receive an
overall score and evaluation for both the mission and the campaign. Individual
missions modify the overall campaign score. A single mission defeat does not end
a campaign, however losing too many battles will bring an end to the war early.

Whenever you finish a mission you have the option to accept the score and
advance to the next mission, or replay it for a better score.
• To try for a better result/outcome in your most recent mission, click REPLAY.
• To return to the Campaign menu, click DONE.
• To proceed directly to the next campaign mission, click CONTINUE.
You can finish an entire campaign without winning every mission, but your final
score will suffer from it.
Note: You can only save one campaign per profile. If you want to keep a
number of parallel saved games on your hard disk you must create a new
profile for each saved game.
Single Player Campaigns
Four fronts. Sixteen different battles. Multiple bomb-cratered, bullet-riddled, warravaged settings around the world for you to take your last, gasping breath, or
create a victory for the generations.

Theatre of Operations
Pacific
In the Pacific theatre, Japan has incited a war against the Allied Forces that will be
fiercely fought on land, sea and air. After its surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, the
Japanese will strive to use the momentum of its early success to sweep to a quick
victory in the Pacific. U.S. forces, on the other hand, will have to regroup quickly
for what promises to be a long and bloody conflict against a highly determined
and highly skilled enemy. From dense island jungles to the wide-open seas, both
sides realise that every battle can turn the tide of this war and lead to ultimate
victory in the Pacific.
North Africa
To win control in North Africa, the victor will not only have to defeat a wellprepared and determined enemy, but it will also have to overcome brutal desert
conditions. Faced with intense heat and an inhospitable terrain, both sides will
need supreme planning as much as anything else to emerge victorious in the
African desert. As both the Axis and Allied armies push forward, supply lines will
become an increasingly important factor in this war. Clearly, whoever can establish
and protect the flow of fuel, water, food and ammunition will have a distinct
advantage in the war in North Africa.
Eastern Europe
On the Eastern European front, German high command had fully expected its
military machine to roll through the Russian Red Army in a matter of months. In
10
1942 pc Man (E)
23/8/02
11:02 am
Page 11
preparation for this campaign, the Third Reich staged one of the biggest build-ups
in the history of modern warfare. Unfortunately for the German commanders,
they didn’t count on the indomitable spirit of the Russian troops or the
impenetrable Russian winter. German forces swept through the Russian defence
with relative ease in the early stages but the tide soon turned with the onslaught of
the harshest winter conditions imaginable. With both sides now contending with
the same inhospitable environment, it will be the supreme test of endurance to see
who can claim victory in Eastern Europe.
Western Europe
With nothing short of total victory as the goal, the Allied forces have commenced
Operation Overlord – the final push toward Berlin. Beginning with a massive
invasion on the beaches of Normandy, the Allies will not stop until they secure
ultimate victory over the Fatherland. The German command, quickly realising
that this is the massive assault they’ve been expecting, understand the importance
of holding their ground at any cost. If German forces can withstand the Allied
invasion at any point during this campaign, they know that ultimate victory will
be within their grasp. Though it’s difficult to predict who’ll win this war, it’s easy
to see that both sides will need to go to battle with a determination and fighting
skill never before seen in the history of modern warfare.

Multiplayer Game Types
There are four unique multiplayer game types, each with different objectives that
require distinct strategies and tactics.
Conquest
The goal of Conquest mode is to reduce your opponent’s tickets to zero. The
current number of tickets are shown above the mini-map. These tickets are a pool
of lives shared by everyone on the same team. There are two ways to reduce an
opponent’s pool of tickets: kill enemy soldiers or capture control points.
Control points
Control points have two purposes in Battlefield 1942. When a team controls a
certain amount of control points on a map based on the mode (Assault or
Head-On), the enemy team begins to lose tickets on a per-minute basis. Control
points also act as spawn points allowing the side that owns it to re-spawn there, if
desired. Some control points cannot be taken. These will be shown with a red
circle around them in the mini-map.
Gaining control of a control point
When all players within a control point radius are on the same team, they gain
control of that point. Once an enemy enters a spawn point radius the flag is
disputed and no spawning can occur there until the issue is resolved.
Reinforcement
When a player dies, he must wait for a reinforcement wave to come before respawning. The re-spawn time is set and adjusted by the game host.
Assault vs. Head-On
Assault maps are organised so that one side acts as the attacker and the other side
acts as the defender. The attacker loses tickets at the start of the game until they
have taken one flag. The attacker wins automatically if they take all the flags.
Head-On maps are organised so that both sides can act as the aggressor. The side
that is in control of more than half of the flags on the map causes the opponent’s
side to lose tickets.
Note: Base flags cannot be captured in Head-On maps.
Co-Op
Co-Op mode pits players against, or teams players with, AI-controlled bots. Players
can join any side and are tied to the same rules as a normal Conquest game.
Team Death Match
A team melee game with the objective of minimising your team’s deaths while
maximising your opponent’s.
Capture The Flag

Playing The Game
By volunteering for a Battlefield 1942 assignment, you admit your addiction to the
sound of exploding artillery and the smell of a burning fuel depot. Mud and sweat
are standard issue. And a good day is a day without casualties, unless they’re on
the other side of the trenches.

Troop Kits
All soldier kits have combat responsibilities. Therefore, all are equipped with a
knife, a pistol and a parachute for basic gear. After that, the equipment varies.
Scout
A frontline spotter for enemy troop and material movements.
The Scout has two main abilities: sniping and artillery
spotting (see Using Weapons and Other Items on p. 24).
Additional equipment: scoped sniper rifle, grenades and
binoculars.
Assault
Leads the way in executing the battle plan. Additional
equipment: heavy machine gun and extra ammo.
Anti-Tank
You may only be on foot, but with your mobility and a
shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, tanks beware. Additional
equipment: bazooka, grenades.
Medic
The Medic’s main role is to heal his teammates. But he is also
a good anti-infantry soldier. The submachine gun he carries
has a nice rate of fire, but medium accuracy and penetration.
A soldier in need of a Medic has an icon above his head
showing he needs healing.
•

To heal, select your Medikit then press Mouse Button 1 to use it. A progress
bar appears that shows the healing status. If any hurt teammate is in your

• Additional equipment: Medikit, sub-machine gun and grenades.
Engineer
The Engineer has several purposes: mine laying/disarming,
demolition and reparations (see Using Weapons and Other Items
on p. 24). His rifle, even though it does not have a great rate
of fire, has good range, precision and firepower. He has a
dual-purpose, both defensive and offensive. He can plant
explosives and landmines and repair all vehicles and
stationary weapons. Additional equipment: standard rifle,
demolition kit, mines, repair kit.

Note: You cannot use enemy aircraft carriers, destroyers, battleships or
submarines. However, you can steal the aircraft off of the carrier and benefit
from any ammo boxes or medical cabinets in enemy bases and control points.
Once you enter a vehicle, the view changes to the position you’re currently in
(driver, pilot, passenger, etc.). Controls are described in the Complete Controls
section on p. 4. As a tank driver, you also control the main gun and turret. As a
pilot, you control the plane, the forward machine guns and you act as bombardier.
In certain trucks and jeeps, you drive and operate a mounted machine gun at the
same time. In submarines, you act as the pilot and man the torpedoes.
• To exit a vehicle, press the E key.

The firepower inside Battlefield 1942 includes a complete arsenal of light and
heavy weapons, bombs and artillery for use on land, sea and air. Included are antiaircraft machine guns, artillery batteries and both tower- and bunker-mounted
machine guns. Machine guns and artillery are also mounted on APCs, tanks, boats
and in the back of certain aircraft. Submarines fire torpedoes.

Any soldier can man stationary weapons, like the Browning or the MG42.
Stationary weapons have unlimited ammo, but they can overheat, which is
represented graphically by a progress bar. It takes a few seconds for a machine gun
to cool down. Only an Engineer can repair damaged stationary weapons and
vehicles.

• To place a remote camera, activate the binoculars and press Mouse Button 1.
The camera shows up on the mini-map and all artillery can use it to indirectly fire
at the enemy. Each camera placement lasts 60 seconds (as long as the Scout is
alive) or until he places another one.
An icon notifies the artillery gunner of the camera placement.
• To aim using the remote camera, press Mouse Button 2 to toggle between the
normal in-game view and the camera view.
