Battlefield 1942 is primarily a multiplayer game and is therefore mainly played on the Internet or local network . In a game round, two teams compete against each other and can fight for points in one of the four game modes Conquest , Capture-the-Flag , Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch. Battlefield 1942 also includes a single-player mode , which can be played simultaneously with several human players with AI opponents cards, which is a popular variant for smaller LAN parties.
In the game each participant assumes the role of a soldier on the German, Russian, American, Canadian, Japanese or British side. He fights in major battles and operations of World War II, the maps are based on the original venues. However, no claim to historical correctness is made. On the sometimes quite large cards up to 64 (with modified server up to 128) participants can compete in two teams against each other.
The player can choose between different character classes, such as paramedics , reconnaissance / sniper , pioneer , simple infantryman or anti-tank gunner. These classes differ in terms of available weapons and equipment. Depending on the scenario, all game characters also have the use of an extensive fleet of vehicles (various tanks , airplanes , off-road vehicles , motorcycles , landing craft , amphibious vehicles , submarines , destroyersand even battleships and aircraft carriers that should be operated simultaneously for effective multi-player use). The game uses primarily the historically used weapons. In addition, the add-on Secret Weapons of WWII added at that time not widely used prototypes such as a rocket backpack, the waterfall rocket or a rocket aircraft of the type Bachem Ba 349 .
