Battlefield: Bad Company

The storyline of Battlefield: Bad Company revolves around a particular four man squad of military misfits during a fictional war in the near-future that pits the Russian Federation against the United States. What the two sides are fighting for is not discussed, although at one point one character asks what its about, another says natural gas. This cause of the war is of little importance to the characters. This squad is one of many found in the "B" Company of the 222nd Army battalion, more commonly known as "Bad Company". This company is composed of the insubordinate troublemakers whose use in the battlefield is limited to the role of cannon fodder. Because of this, "Bad Company" is often sent before Special Forces because they are "expendable".

The squad consists of Private Preston Marlowe, the game's protagonist (who was put in B-Company for taking a joy-ride in one of his installation's helicopters, damaging the helicopter and a general's limousine). Private Terrence Sweetwater (put in B-Company for uploading a virus on the military secure network), a soldier who is generally intelligent, and has a dry sense of humor and serves as the foil for Private George Gordon Haggard Jr., a.k.a "Haggard". Haggard often provides comic relief, when he isn't raving about "blowing things up," which landed him in B-Company for blowing up a weapons cache (all that is mentioned is an officers latrine and claymores.) Sergeant Samuel D. Redford is in charge of this squad in Bad Company, and unlike many other Bad Company soldiers, he volunteered for his position, despite the company's high mortality rate. In exchange, the army would shorten his term of service. Through the start of the game, Redford shows his love for fishing, and only has a few more days left until the end of his service.
Battlefield: Bad Company is a First person shooter-game for the   developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts.
