DICE and EA have been very quiet when it comes to communicating with the players about the state of their first-person shooter Battlefield 2042. Well, it seems that is going to be changing soon, along with the state of the game.

Through a blog post, the developers of the polarising first-person shooter revealed details on the newest patch that has now gone live for the game. The patch, update 3.2, is fairly smaller in size, but a few important fixes are worth mentioning nonetheless.

For starters, infantry slowdown when getting shot by enemy weapons or vehicles is being removed. Another thing that is getting fixed is the hit detection for Sundance while landing using the wingsuit, as well as the vehicle weapon hit detection. The more requested fixes by the community, such as in-game scoreboard, are unfortunately not getting added via this update, though that will be addressed through another patch in February.

Apart from the above, Battlefield Portal is also getting fixes today. This comes in days after a developer at Ripple Effect Studios confirmed that they are working on the continued issues with earning XP and tier progression.

As shared recently via the Battlefield Direct Communication Twitter, the developers are increasing the per minute XP cap across all the Battlefield Portal modes to 300. The mastery and weekly missions are also getting tweaked and can be progressed within Portal, but only in certain cases. The developers have also mentioned that via a future update, further improvements are planned, such as a UI indicator showing if a created mode will have progression restrictions. The changes are currently live, alongside the 3.2 updates for the game.
