Battlefield 2042

While the public reception to Battlefield 2042 is less than ideal (at least on Steam), DICE has outlined what’s coming in its next update. In a series of tweets, it confirmed the issue that was preventing players from reviving when their teammates are close to “nearby geometry” and that it will be fixed. A server side fix for an issue that saw players unable to respawn is also coming (though another solution is planned if it doesn’t work).

UAV-1 interaction was also removed due to balancing issues but it will be re-enabled with this update. Those facing issues with missing loadouts (as a result of a failed data call on the developer’s end) should also see a fix. Finally – and most importantly – the LCAA Hovercraft is being nerfed.

Along with receiving lighter armor and less health, its weapons are also being toned down while the MD540 Nightbird will also have its weapons tuned. A release date for the update hasn’t been provided yet so stay tuned for more details in the coming days. Battlefield 2042 is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
