Battlefield 1942 Hints
PC | Submitted by KrapatsnjaHints
You can perform a Para drop on a enemy base, for example. Just take a plane, fly pretty high over the enemy base, get out, press the "parachute" button a couple of times until you see a parachute icon on the screen. Then wait until you hit the ground. This is very good if you want to be behind enemy lines, but don't have time to land properly. You can do this with allies too, if you have a double or triple seated plane.
You can pick up the weapons that enemies and allies leave after them when they are killed. This is good when you meet a tank and don't have a bazooka. just pick one up! you got to love this game! Of course, it's made by Swedes.

Yes, you can do it in a plane, but its funnier, and easier in a jeep, preferably a kublewagon because of it's deep back seat.
Well, this is how you do it. Be an engineer, pull out your dynamite, and toss it in the back seat. Drive it to a big group of enemies, or tanks (better boom!). Get out of the jeep/kublewagon, and blow it up.
Its really funny when you get out and one of your guys gets in and drives off! Cause' when he gets close to the enemy... Ka-blooey, "I didnt like him anyway." LOL

ok, go to the back of the carrier, then get to the lowest deck in the middle of the carrier, there are 2 ramps to get down on there, stand about a foot away from the top of these ramps, run forwards jump and press the key '9' and you will float nicely down into the water under the aircraft carrier, now all you need to do is swim to the flag and capture it,
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarAxis carrier
Go to the front of the Carrier on the top deck, then stand closly up to the edge and face the planes on the carrier, then press the backwards key and then hit your parachute button ' 9 ', this will allow you to float down into the ship, then all you want to do is swim to the flag and capture it.
ok now the Allied Carrier
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarCoral Sea Flag Cheat
On the map coral sea you can capture the flag whilst the ships are still up and alive in the water. You can do this on both Allied and Axis Aircraft Carriers.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarCapture the flag (tip)
When your ally has captured the flag fly very close to the carrier if he presses 'E' at the right time he can get into the plane and then just fly him back
PC | Submitted by justinHelp From A Medic
All you have to is, shoot a medic once and when he tries to heal himself stand close to him. He will automatically heal you and himself. This is how to get healed by a medic.
PC | Submitted by bobEngineer Trick
During any level, choose to be an engineer and sneak up by their base, when you are there find one of their tanks and put a claymore on it, then g on a hill or ditch around it, lay down and wait for an enemy come and get into the tank, then when he is in activate it and it will blow him and his tank up. THIS IS A Great way to help minimize the number of tanks against you.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarSecret B17
On the map Gazala, there is a hidden airfield. As you look at the map the airfield is located at the northwest corner near the Allies base. There you will see 2 Spitfires. The quickest way to get there is by jeep. This is a critical hint when playing on the internet against the germans because of their tanks. There is no B17 there in single player!!
PC | Submitted by SelfridgeParachute
To parachute out of a plane before it explodes, First Press the "E" button which lets you enter and exit out of vehicles. Then immediately after press the key "9". the number 9 key and press and hold it. Your chute will then open and you will be able to pull out your gun and shoot nearby enemies. If the parachute does not open up then keep on pressing the 9 key button. it will open up.

1. In single player pick the medic kit. Your are going to get a good gun no matter what side you're on, and you can heal yourself. If a different gun is needed in a situation, try to pick up a more useful kit from dead friends or enemies (G).
2. If you can, "camp" near an ammo box so that you can have an unlimited supply of ammo.
3. When playing a map that has and enemy aircraft carrier on it swim, drive or parachute onto it and camp right next to the ammo box inside the little room. From there you can have a huge advantage: the enemy can't come up behind you, you have unlimited ammo, and you can take out all the planes and people that spawn on the deck in front of you.

Some funny things to do, is if you take a jeep, you can drive on people! It's kind of funny becaus they stay on the motor!
2. If you drive a plane, if you are over the water(land OK too), you can press Enter/exit vehicle button and you will fall down and scream: Shiranimo! Then you die, of course, you won't survive the fall from a higher place. Good luck!
PC | Submitted by Tomas RooimansEasy plane fly
When you fly a plane you have to use the mouse to aim your flight if you change the controls from using the mouse to using the directional-arrows instead you fly alot easier
PC | Submitted by IshbuLadder Trick
Ok, this is kind of funny when playing with friends. Go up to a guard tower or another building with a long ladder. Drop a grenade about 2 or 3 feet from the bottom of the ladder so that it is sitting on the ground right in front of the ladder. Quickly jump on the ladder and clime about 3,4 feet up. when the grenade explodes your character fly's toward the sky forever.
PC | Submitted by Tomas RooimansGood combo
If you are playing coop with 2 people have 1 be anti-tank and the other medic this way you have a good chance surviving most attacks
Battlefield 1942 Cheats
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarVarious Cheats
Use 1 player mode and press ~ during gameplay to get the console. Now enter a code below
aiCheats.code Tobias.Karlsson Invincibility
aiCheats.code Jonathan.Gustavsson Kill Enemy Bots
aiCheats.code Thomas.Skoldenborg Kill Bots
aiCheats.code BotsCanCheatToo Bots Cheat
aiCheats.code TheAllSeeingEyeOfTheAIProgrammer AI Stat Toggle
aiCheats.code WalkingIsWayTooTiresome New Spawn Location
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?
