Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042’s next big update is out now and provides a large number of fixes along with kicking off the preseason. Weekly Missions will start in the following week, adding three missions each week that rewards player XP. Completing all of them nets a “unique cosmetic reward.”

Update 0.3.0 also adds new game mode layouts for Rush on All-Out Warfare maps in Battlefield Portal, Vehicle Team Deathmatch as a new custom mode, and a new logic option to the Rules Editor to check fatal damage source. Quality of life improvements for the Collection menu are also included which better indicates attachments that have been recently unlocked, currently in use or still locked.

The UI also receives some improvements with player world icons now scaling with distance (thus resulting in reduced clutter). Indicators have also been added for players who are low on ammo and/or health, those in need of revival or capable of reviving, and so on. This is all on top of more than 150 individual fixes and changes for the gameplay.

Check out some of the patch notes below – full notes can be read here. Another smaller update is expected to go live in early December that focuses “on further balance changes, and general bug fixes to further enhance your gameplay experience.” Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
