Battlefield Vietnam Hints
PC | Submitted by SPaRRoWDisable Opposing Airforce
On Operation Flaming Dart the most important thing to is to make the other team have no way of transport. You must do the following: Be NVA, choose the engineer with the mortar, fly over to the US base in a plane or chopper. Find one of their ATC towers (there are three, one for airplanes, one for boats and one for choppers) shoot the tower you choose a few times then bail out. Pull out your mortar and let the tower have it. You should be able to take out the tower with just your mortar. Then booby trap all the vehicles you can and step back for some entertainment!

(Also works with an MI8) Have another player get into a huey or MI8 and take off and hover over the helipad. Get directly under the helicopter and crouch. Then have the pilot come back down on you (This may hurt unless friendly fire is turned off). It might take a couple of tries but if done correctly, you should be inside the helicopter. You can now hide inside and kill any enemies that enter or use it as a better air support battery.

First, go to the single player menu, and pick the first battle on the instant action screen. be the Americans! when the level begins, grab 1 of the huey choppers, and lower the cargo cable. grab a patrol boat with the cable. now, get some altitude and speed down the river. once you get enough speed, release the boat. immediately after dropping the boat, eject from the chopper and quickly throw out the parachute. you should land right in the boat. this way lets you easily reach the enemy's last spawn and take it...plus, it looks so damn cool!

An easy way to drop the logs on the traps without being in an easy to spot and shoot position, is to put some C4 or other controlled explosive and detonate it from a safe position.
PC | Submitted by PiersKicking US helicopter ass
When playing on a map were the Americans have a helicopter and you are a Vietcong, always select a RPG and get a friend to come a long with an automatic weapon. Find a helicopter (huey if possible) stay low and in the foliage hold yojur fire until our aiming at the rear of it near the tale rotor and fire, the missile should bring down the chopper, if anyone survives the crash get your friend to finish them off with some machine gun fire, and help yourself to the spoils that are in the chopper!

One good way to destroy airfield control towers in 'operation flaming dart' is to be a type of unit that has access to a controlled explosive like the c-4. go to the enemy tower and go prone using the sand bags for protection. place as many explosives on the towers sandbags (from the inside) and when you see them start to disappear run away detonate the explosives and repeat. use the ammo crate under the towers to use as many explosives as you want.
Battlefield Vietnam Cheats

NOTE: The codes are were tested in v1.1 retail. They do not, will not, cannot work in multi-player (not even coop with bots)! Beware that some of these commands are unstable as I mentioned above. It is important that you spell the codes exactly as written, they are case sensitive and getting it wrong brings your team down to one ticket ;-). Also note that the developers were bastards -- using the cheats causes a
"penalty" to be paid. For example, using godmode results in 60-70% of your tickets "disappearing". But this is better then nothing, right?
