Battlefield 2: Modern CombatEdit
Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit
In Battlefield: Bad Company's singleplayer campaign, the BMD-3 is quite common, being spotted on many missions, like during Welcome to Bad Company, when the player is required to destroy one as a primary objective. In Crossing Over and Par for the Course, many BMDs can be spotted, along with T-90's while searching for the player in the large open fields, and certain empty and free to be used by the player.
In multiplayer, the BMD-3 is the IFV for the RU team, it's only difference between it and the American counterpart is that it's 2 firing ports are stationed at the sides of the vehicle, and not the back like the M3A3 Bradley.

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2's singleplayer, the BMD-3 appears multiple times in the campaign in the levels Upriver, Heavy Metal, High Value Target and No One Gets Left Behind. None of these can be used by the player, but generally an RPG can be found lying about before an encounter with one. 2 hits on any side from an RPG will destroy the tank, or a couple blocks of C4.
In multiplayer, the BMD-3 Bakhcha is the Russians' main IFV. It is affected by all vehicle specializations and is exactly the same as the M3A3 Bradley in performance. It has a slightly more intrusive HUD compared to the M3A3, but this makes aiming easier in woodland-style environments, such as in Laguna Presa, where the green HUD of the M3A3 can be difficult to see. The BMD-3 appears on Panama Canal, White Pass, Laguna Presa and Laguna Alta in the Conquest game mode. It is used by enemy AI on every map in Onslaught mode. Unlike in the campaign, the BMD-3 will be destroyed by three hits to the front by an Anti-Tank weapon, or 2 to the rear. However, the tank will be instantly destroyed by running over an Anti-Tank Mine.
