About Rising Storm 2: Vietnam

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is the sequel to PC Gamer’s 2013 ‘Multiplayer Game of the Year’, published by Tripwire Interactive and developed by Antimatter Games, the same team that created the award-winning innovative asymmetric gameplay of the original Rising Storm. For the first time, the authentic gunplay and visceral first-person action of the Red Orchestra series is coming to an era of automatic rifles, man-portable grenade launchers and more modern weapons systems. Rising Storm 2: Vietnam casts players into a brutal, authentic recreation of the Vietnam War.

Continuing the Tripwire tradition of providing strong support for games post-launch, Vietnam has already been updated multiple times, providing the player with:

  • 64-player battles
  • 6 different armies to play, each with their own weapons and abilities:
  • United States Army and Marine Corps
  • North Vietnamese Army (PAVN) and National Liberation Front (Viet Cong)
  • Australian Army
  • Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN)
  • Over 50 weapons, covering everything from rifles and pistols to flamethrowers and rocket launchers
  • 4 flyable helicopters - Huey, Cobra, Loach and Bushranger
  • Asymmetric warfare - VC traps and tunnels vs. US napalm and choppers
  • More than 20 maps
  • 3 distinct game-modes
  • Proximity VOIP
  • And hundreds of character customization options.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam offers intense action for up to 64 players in battles between the forces of South Vietnam (the US and their Allies) and those of the North - the regular, main-force units of North Vietnamese Army, plus the guerilla fighters of the National Liberation Front (or Viet Cong).

SOUTHERN FORCES - US, Australian and ARVN

The Southern forces have firepower and mobility on their side, with each army having its own unique supporting arms:

  • US Army/Marine Corps - airburst artillery, the Spooky gunship and napalm strikes
  • Australian Army - Pair of Canberra bombers and heavy artillery
  • ARVN - medium mortar barrage and napalm strikes from older A-1 Skyraiders

For mobility, they have access to full helicopter support:

  • UH-1 “Huey”: provides rapid transport for a squad across the map
  • OH-6 “Loach”: acts as both a spotter and airborne command post, as well as a fast gunship, with its miniguns
  • AH-1G “Cobra”: heavily-armed gunship with massive firepower for a pilot and weapons officer
  • Australian “Bushranger”: a Huey, with dual M60 machine guns, minigun and rockets

Tactically, the Southern squad leaders become important - so long as the squad leader is alive and in a smart location, the rest of his squad can spawn in on his location. So keep your squad leaders alive at critical moments!

As for weapons, the Southern forces had a wide range of the best weaponry of Western nations, ranging from older, WWII-era leftovers, through to the latest technology of the time:

  • M1 Garand, M2 Carbine, M3 “grease gun”, BAR and M1919 .30-cal LMG
  • M14 Battle Rifle, M40 and XM21 sniper rifles
  • M60 LMG and M16 automatic rifle
  • For heavier support - the M79 grenade launcher and M9A1-7 flamethrower
  • Explosives - M61 frag grenade, M8 smoke, C4 explosives and M18 Claymore

NORTHERN FORCES - NVA and VC

The Northern forces offer a broader mix, with the People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN - or NVA) as the regular, disciplined and better-equipped main fighting force, in comparison to the National Liberation Front (NLF) guerrilla fighters, equipped with whatever weaponry was passed down the chain to them from Russia and China - known as the Viet Cong. For supporting weapons each has:

  • PAVN/NVA - heavy artillery, surface-to-air missile defenses and rapid reinforcement from the Ho Chi Minh trail
  • NLF/VC - a mix of ordnances (mortars, rockets, white phosphorous) used in a heavy barrage

To compete with the Southern forces’ mobility, the Northern forces have their own mobility - and stealth:

  • NVA and VC squad leaders can place spawn tunnels widely across the maps, allowing themselves and their squads to spawn much closer to the action - or even behind the lines
  • Given their “home field advantage”, any NVA or VC crouching or prone in cover can’t be spotted by Southern helicopters or aircraft
  • SA-2 Missiles - the quick way to counter Southern air assets is by calling on surface-to-air missiles, if the commander can time it right
  • “Ho Chi Minh Trail” ability - the NVA/VC commander can activate this ability to accelerate his team’s spawning rate, when times get desperate
  • “Ambush Spawn” ability - the NVA/VC commander can also cause anyone on his team who is waiting, to spawn on his location for potentially devastating ambushes.

The weaponry for the Northern forces is wide-ranging - the PAVN well-equipped with modern weapons delivered from Russia and China, while the VC have to work with a wide variety of weapons:

  • AK-47 and Type 56 Assault rifles
  • Russian SKS-45 and US M1 Carbines and Mosin Nagant 91/30 rifle
  • MN 91/30 and SVD sniper rifles
  • PPSh-41 and French MAT-49 SMGs
  • IZh-58 double-barrelled shotgun
  • DP-28 and RPD LMGs
  • RPG-7 rocket launcher
  • MD-82 toe-popper mines, Tripwires and Punji traps
