Battlefield Vietnam is the second computer game in Electronic Arts' Battlefield franchise after Battlefield 1942. The game was developed by the Swedish company Digital Illusions and published by Electronic Arts on March 15, 2004 in North America and days later in other parts of the world. Battlefield Vietnam takes place during the Vietnam War. The game features a large variety of maps based on historical settings, such as the Ho Chi Minh Trail, Battle of Hue, Ia Drang Valley, Operation Flaming Dart, The Battle of Khe Sanh and Fall of Saigon. Many parts of the game have been influenced by popular Vietnam War movies. Examples being the players ability to play Ride of the Valkyries on the radio and the tiger striped M79 from Apocalypse Now.
On March 15, 2005, EA re-released the game as Battlefield Vietnam: Redux, which includes the 1.01, 1.02, 1.1, and 1.2 patches, new vehicles, maps, and an EA-produced World War II mod, based on the previous Battlefield 1942.

 Skip opening sequence
Begin your game with the restart +1 command line parameter.
Unlike Battlefield 1942, players should take advantage of dense Vietnamese foliage to sneak around battles.
 Faster Start-Up
To start the game faster when loading from a shortcut, right click the shortcut and
choose "Properties." Append "+restart 1" at the end of the address in the Target field and save the change.
 Scared "crapless"
This trick works best on the Flaming Dart level. Get in a jet and fly straight up until you cannot go any higher. Then, bail out. Everything should be white when you bail. When falling, your character will scream. A few seconds after the screams stop, you can hear him crapping his pants.
 Exceed Chinook limit
To fit more people than the maximum amount in a Chinook, jump into the back opened hatch and run towards the front of the chopper. If you use the parachute in it, the game will automatically put you outside floating down. This works well when you have a short supply of transport vehicles for a good ambush. The same thing works for a boat. You can fit many people in it.
 Using napalm
Napalm will burn straight and backwards. This will help when hitting targets. Also, if you get hit by napalm do not move and you will not burn.
 Finding ammunition faster
When you need ammunition for weapons that take a long time to find in an ammo crate, keep pressing [Action] to find it a lot faster. This obviously does not work in vehicles.
 Bomb car
You need to be a C4 engineer for this trick. Find a jeep and weaken it about 80%. Plant C4 charges on the hood. Get in it and hit a car, tank, or anything else. The C4s will detonate, and destroy what you hit. Note: You can jump out of the jeep just before you hit the target, but it may not explode at the first moment.
The Chinook can float on water.
 Use your own music
Enter the game's folder and place .MP3 files in the "My Music" folder found there. You can play them in the vehicles by using the "Vehicle Music" option. To use this option while driving any vehicle, press 0 and a menu will appear with corresponding letters to the custom songs.
