Battlefield 2042 Update – What’s New?
In the upcoming Battlefield 2042 update, we can expect a major overhaul to the game’s maps. In addition to the usual improvements like new weapon and vehicle skins, the update also makes the game’s hitbox size larger and downscales the Breakthrough mode. It also has tweaked Vehicle distribution, which is another big change. So, how will the update affect you? Read on to find out! We also have a preview of the new features and map changes in Battlefield 2042.
OV-P Recon Drone’s hitbox size
The OV-P Recon Drone now has a wider hitbox and a shorter grace period when occluded. It now has better spotting capability when aimed at enemy vehicles and is more reliable when deployed from a prone position. Additionally, the hitbox size of the OV-P Recon Drone has been enlarged by 50%, and it now has a wider range for EMP.
The OV-P Recon Drone’d hitbox is now much larger and easier to hit. The SG-36 Sentry Gun will no longer destroy its owner when hit, and it can now acquire targets on unknown vehicles. The hitbox has also been redesigned so that it does not turn into a car and is not turned around when flying. Finally, the OV-P Recon Drone’s hitbox has been resized and will now allow the player to engage targets on the ground without turning around.
Other changes in the Battlefield 2042 update include post-launch skins and weekly missions. Players can now track three Weekly Missions from the main menu. Performing all three will reward players with a new cosmetic item. Unfortunately, the Santa Claus skin for Boris is a disappointment, and the rest of the update is focused on improving the game and squashing bugs.
APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel’s hitbox size
A new patch for Battlefield 2042 has introduced several changes to the APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel. The hitbox size of this weapon is now bigger, and Assists are now triggered when a teammate kills an enemy covered in smoke. Previously, the Sector/Objective Defended gave players 15 XP, but now it’s only worth ten. The hitbox size of the APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel has been enlarged to help players identify where to aim their attacks.
A new APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel has been added to the game’s inventory. This new weapon has a larger hitbox and a longer range than its predecessors. It’s the newest addition to the Battlefield 2042 map, and DICE has fixed several bugs. The APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel’s hitbox will be bigger after the next patch, as will the other new guns and vehicles.
A number of other fixes have been made to the game to address various issues with the game. Players will now be able to equip the Syrette Pistol while swimming, and Mackay can now grapple moving vehicles more reliably. Additionally, the SWS-10 has received an increase in damage. In addition, Casper is now able to enter the vehicle with his Crouch toggle instead of his stance. Additionally, the APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel’s hitbox size should no longer be affected by the player’s actions. As the DICE team continues working on Battlefield 2042, there are a number of changes that will be implemented in the coming weeks.
Breakthrough mode’s downscaling
Battlefield 2042 has gotten a mixed reaction from players, as it launched with a large number of bugs and missing features. The first issue was the downscaling of Breakthrough mode, which allowed up to 128 players to compete in one map. This proved to be too much for some players and was removed. However, the game has since made the mode playable for players of all skill levels.
The first update to Battlefield 2042 was to reduce the number of players in Breakthrough mode from 128 to 64. The update, dubbed 4.1, will come out on May 19, and is likely to fix the majority of the game’s bugs and issues. Additionally, the update will give players a more varied experience by making Conquest games more expansive, which will make them more popular.
The game’s downscaling has been an issue for a number of games. Battlefield 2042 has many new features, including a scoreboard and voice chat, but it still feels clunky and directionless at times. The game also is less popular than other recent entries on Steam, and that’s partly due to the release of Halo Infinite, which took the multiplayer spotlight away from Battlefield 2042. Fortunately, EA listened to its players and made Breakthrough playable.
In Breakthrough mode, the attackers have to capture the captured flag while the defenders have to defend the second sector. In order to make it work, a combination of Specialist gadgets and vehicles is required to defeat all attacking forces. This mode also allows players to save the flag of their team and recapture it. The defenders have a limited number of Sectors, and they must synergize vehicles and Specialist gadgets to make the most of their resources.
Vehicle distribution tweaked
The developers of the popular first-person shooter have released a new patch for Battlefield 2042. While the main focus of the update is to fix some issues with the multiplayer maps, they have also made a few other tweaks to improve the overall game experience. The Kaleidoscope map and Traversal map will be redesigned, moving spawn points closer to each other and adding more cover to the map. The developer is also working on changes to vehicle distribution in the 128-player modes.
The game has been updated for Xbox One and PC, adding a few new weapons and vehicles to the mix. There have also been some changes made to the SFAR-M GL, which means it now deals more damage than ever before. In addition, the overall number of vehicles available in Breakthrough and Conquest has been adjusted to reflect these changes. The M5C Bolte’s Missile Launcher will no longer increase damage to air vehicles, instead putting it into the Armored vehicle category. The update will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S sometime in June or July.
The third-person camera no longer clips through the environment when a player is prone. This bug prevented players from reviving near certain objects. The new scoreboard will also display a full scoreboard at the end of each round. The update will also fix a bug that prevents players from reviving near certain objects. There will also be a change in how weapon attachments are displayed, making them more accessible to the player.
Over 400 individual bug fixes
DICE has revealed that the next Battlefield 2042 update will contain over 400 individual bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and a variety of other changes. The newest patch will focus on Vehicular Warfare balance and the addition of new weapon attachments. It will also address an ADS bug that has been plaguing the game since its launch. The full patch notes will be released next week.
The April update will include a host of QoL improvements and over 400 individual bug fixes. Other changes will include rebalancing the Support Action system and changes to Ribbon commendations. Additionally, the April update will make it easier to unlock Ribbons in Rush. The rebalance will also affect Vehicular Warfare, including balance tweaks for vehicles and infantry. The patch will also introduce some changes for the multiplayer experience, including a revamped map and a number of other changes.
Another major update will bring a scoreboard feature to the game. Battlefield 2042 featured a squad-focused scoreboard in the beginning of the game, and players were disappointed when they couldn’t view the entire scoreboard after a round. This update will make this a reality, as well as solve the persistent bug. Moreover, the update will also add several other features, including vehicle rebalancing.
The Battlefield 2042 UI refresh is a welcome improvement for fans of the series. The update was released about five months ago, but it has received a mixed reception. Despite its negative reception, the developers have continued to improve the game by incorporating features that are common among competitive FPS games. In addition to the UI refresh, the December update will also address some of the game’s sticking points. Now, players should be able to switch back to their weapons more quickly after throwing grenades.
A few other major changes that are being rolled out for this game are VoIP functionality for Squads and a refreshed Scoreboard during the End of Round screens. In addition, the game will make balancing changes to infantry and vehicle weaponry. Players will also see improvements in the Match Overview. The new feature will offer information about the match, along with their own personal stats. The new UI will also make it easier to find other players and to differentiate their friends.
In addition to the UI refresh, the Battlefield 2042 update will also include bug fixes and over 150 new fixes and improvements from DICE. A new European server will also be added. Lastly, players will be able to join a new game server if the one they’re currently playing has an English-language version.
