I was wondering how you get more "points" to unlock the other characters? I just bought the game and read the manual and unless I missed something I didn't see how on multiplayer you can get the special characters. It says you need 8 points or something but I was wonder how you get these "points"?
(sorry for a noob question and thx for the help)
you get points by killing people, capturing command posts and blowing up critical systems in space maps.
yep then a little thing says u can now play as han solo or darth maul
Ok thx...this game is pritty fun played it a bit last night...really fast, sometimes to fast at times.
Actually, you get points as said by Wraith 5, but in instant action mode, go to Options, Hero, and change settings there, and each map has different Heroes. In game, when you get the set amount of points or live for the set amount of time, heroes are unlocked and a dialogue box will ask you if you want to play as _____. And Shawnz, if it's too fast go to Options and turn up the reinforcements in the Conquest or Assault menus.

OMG....you wouldnt believe how many people asked that yesterday while i was playing BF2 yesterday...is it not obvious? 1 point for killing someone. 5 points for capturing a command post on your own, or if you arrived there first and started capturing, when someone else came along and helped you). 2 points for helping to capture a command post. and I think, doubled points if you become a hero. Please correct/add to this peeps.
