Private Jim Gates is a character featured in Battlefield II singleplayer war story Isles of the Pacific. He is member of Campo's squad and designated marksman.
He was born in 1921 in Buffalo, New York. He wanted to become a police officer, similiar to his father, but due to small height he didn't pass the commision. When the war broke out, he decided to join the military. At the beginning, recruiting officers were skeptical, but when Gates showed them his skills at the shooting range, he was accepted as a sniper.
Gates participates in raid on Makin Atoll and Guadalcanal in 1942. He is squad's designated marksman and has Sharpshooter role and will provide sniper fire during the gameplay.
