The complete phase diagrams of the antiferromagnetic spin-2 Blume-Capel Ising system is studied on the Bethe lattice by the use of exact recursion relations. In order to specify the states of the system, i.e. the different spin configurations, the ground state phase diagram is obtained on the (H/vertical bar J vertical bar, D/vertical bar J vertical bar) plane corresponding to the reduced external magnetic and crystal fields, respectively. As a result, the thermal change of the order-parameters, the magnetisations belonging to the two sublattice system, was investigated to obtain the full phase diagrams of the system on the (H/vertical bar J vertical bar, kT/vertical bar J vertical bar) planes. The behavior of the order-parameters with respect to the external magnetic field was also studied for the given values of D/vertical bar J vertical bar. Besides the interesting thermal and external magnetic field change of the sublattice magnetisations, the system also exhibits interesting critical behaviors including first- and second-order phase transitions, therefore, triciritical points and the reentrant behavior. The calculations are carried out for the coordination number q=4, corresponding to the square lattice, only.
