You can get the full Battlefield Vietnam manual here but if you need something a little more crash course type, take a look below!


Most controls will be the same as many FPS games. Mouse for moving your view, WASD for moving, left mouse to shoot, right mouse for Aiming Down Sights/zooming in/alternative fire.

Battlefield Vietnam does, however, have some controls you might not be used to.
    

Most controls will be the same as many FPS games. Mouse for moving your view, WASD for moving, left mouse to shoot, right mouse for Aiming Down Sights/zooming in/alternative fire.

 Battlefield Vietnam does, however, have some controls you might not be used to:


E - getting into vehicles/emplacements. 


G - Picking up stuff from the ground, such as the NVA mobile spawn, a weapon kit dropped by a dead player or placed explosives.  

 

K - Chat to everyone on the server.      


L - Chat to just your team.     


F keys - At the top of your screen you will see commands linked to F keys, press the appropriate F key for the option you want.   

 

Switching weapons with the mouse wheel - Scroll to the weapon you want and then press left mouse button. (You can also use the number keys)    


Switching seats - Use the number keys, if the seat is red on the icon at the bottom it is occupied.   


Q - See the distance/location of flags, teammates and placed friendly explosives. (I suggest you do this every game, or you might get some upset players when you run over their mines)      


Tab - View the scoreboard.

           

Insert - View the map order.

           

M - Open up the map.

           

- Change the minimap zoom level.

           

Z - Go prone.

           

Ctrl - Crouch

           

` or ~ - open the console.

           

Left shift - Walk. (If you find a use for this, let me know. It will take you forever to get anywhere)

           

Space - jump

           

C - Change camera view in vehicles.

           

0 - Open the radio.

           

9 - Parachute



Also, here are some unique mechanisms regarding vehicles or tools:

            

Wrench/ratchet - Repairs damaged vehicles/emplacements and apparently trees…(don’t ask)

           

Blowtorch - Damages vehicles/emplacements. (Don’t forget to run once it’s fully damaged…)

           

Bouncing betty - Will pop up and explode when triggered by movement. (hide round a corner if possible)

           

Claymore - (will explode when triggered by movement or manually)

           

Pungi sticks - Will instantly kill or deal a lot of damage if stepped on.

           

Caltrops - Deal a little damage but multiple times. (If you see them on stairs find another route…)

           

Landmines - Will explode when a vehicle passes over them. (Not triggered by infantry, don’t place them in tunnels unless you want strange looks)

           

Time bombs - Will explode after 10 seconds. Hold right mouse button to set the time manually.

           

C4 - Throw with left mouse, use right mouse to get the detonator or press the C4 key again.

           

Mortar - Deploy at your location with left mouse, press E to use it.

           

Binoculars - Aim at a location with right mouse then press left mouse. This will give artillery line of sight for 1 minute or until you die. Players on artillery can switch between targets with the mouse wheel. The Loach has this as an alternative fire option.

           

Airlifting - The Huey and ACH(Chinook) both have ropes for hooking onto US vehicles. Hold right mouse to deploy the rope, then hover it above the vehicle you wish to pick up until the light goes green. Once done, you can let go of the right mouse button until you want to drop the target, which you can do by pressing right mouse again. The player being airlifted should not move as this will cause them to get dropped.
