The Armacham Field Guide details the story of F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon, the history of Alma Wade, and the creation of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. It was available to customers who reserved F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin at Gamestop.
The guide is written by Genevieve Aristide, the president of Armacham Technology Corporation, as she muses about past events and coworkers. The guide contains a timeline of Alma's life, as well as character blurbs about the major characters and weapons of F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon and F.E.A.R. 2. Genevieve makes notes throughout the guide, such as theorizing that Alma killed Alice Wade because she may have been jealous of her.
Notably, the guide contains a few errors, including listing a different location for Still Island than that seen in the game, as well as claiming that Alma did not wake up when giving birth to Paxton Fettel, which is contradicted by a statement made in-game from Terry Halford. The errors were likely caused by the guide being written before the second game was complete.
