In Battlefield 2, the QBZ-97 is the standard primary weapon of the Spec Forces kit for the PLA. It is the most accurate of the basic level carbines, and when prone is more accurate than the G36C. The iron sights are similar to that of the G36C's or G3's , as it has an open/aperture sight with the focus created from the front post just like the latter.QBZ97(01:59)
- In the Battlefield 2 game files, the weapon is referred to as "chrif_type95" instead of Type 97 or QBZ-97, indicating that it was originally intended to be the QBZ-95 rifle which was featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat.
- The QBZ-97 was originally intended to be included in Battlefield 3 with the Back to Karkand expansion pack, under the name Type 97. However, it was later replaced with the QBZ-95B.
