Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the second issue of the Battlezone Field Report. We hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and we're kicking off 2017 with a bumper issue. This time around we're bringing you an exclusive interview with Team Evolve's Robert Waring, the second part of Bobcat Betty's combat guide and our New Year workshop run-down. In this issue we'll also be providing a run-down of the changes introduced in the latest patch.

The Heracles Brigade is busy with a lot of big projects we hope to share soon. To tide you over we're also publishing 'The Battlezone Chronicles', a long-running alternative-universe serial run by HyperFighter with chapters contributed by many other community members.

We've also created a community discord server which you can access from this site's primary navigation menu or by clicking here. The server is available for members of the Battlezone 1998, Battlezone II, Battlezone 98 Redux, and any other related community. We're working on bots and systems to make it a powerful utility for anyone looking to play the game or be involved in the community.
