Homefront is a military like first person shooter. If you’ve played Call of Duty, you will find this game very familiar. You can rank up to unlock more weapons. You can then unlock attachments for those weapons by earning a set amount of kills. There are even “perk” like special abilities for players and vehicles. Homefront does contain vehicles, but they are used a lot more differently than other popular vehicle warfare games like battlefield. Each section of this guide covers everything you need to know about Homefront’s multiplayer. This game does need a special pass to rank up past level 5 in the multiplayer. Either buy the game brand new or you will have to buy an online pass through the store for $10.
Homefront does not have any type of split screen available. There is only online ranked multiplayer matches and private matches. Private matches can be between you and anyone you know online.
Just like many other games, Homefront allows you to create a custom loadout for multiplayer. The loadouts must be made before a match in the armory. Four classes will be available at the start of the game. Two loadouts will be unlocked for customization at later levels, but you can still use those two loadouts in game.
Each custom loadout contains:
1 Primary Weapon
1 Attachment for the primary weapon
Camouflage for the primary weapon
1 Special Explosive
2 Purchase Slots
Choose whatever set up you like to create the perfect class. Some infantry abilities and weapon purchases are geared more towards offensive play. Some are geared more towards defensive play. Mix and match to find the perfect balance. This guide will help you choose the correct weapon, purchase weapon, attachment, and infantry ability.
XP and BP are the two main parts of Homefront’s Multiplayer. They are both awarded the same via kills, but they have different functions. Experience Points (XP) carry over and increases your rank. The final amount of XP earned at the end of the match is the amount of BP plus a match bonus. Battle Points (BP) are used to buy certain things during a game, such as RPGs or vehicles. Each match starts you out with 500 BP. BP carries over from life to life, but it does not carry over from match to match.
You are awarded XP/BP bonuses while playing Homefront’s multiplayer. Do any one of these things to get the XP/BP Bonus. Some bonuses may have a + next to them. The + means you are given this amount in addition to the normal amount. If you get a kill, you are awarded 130. If you get a kill with a headshot, you are awarded 160 (130 + 30).
