The bad condition of Battlefield 2042 for the launch is on everyone’s lips. Despite Day-1 patch, there are still many bugs in the game and the balancing makes problems. At DICE, you are trying to accept these topics. Even today, the extensive update 2 is available, which is discussed in a long blog post. We reveal you what’s in the download.
When is Update 2 available? The patch has been available on all platforms since 9am German.
This brings Update 2 in Battlefield 2042
Previously, bugs were fixed and worked on the stability of the servers. The second update now finally brings profound improvements for gameplay and balancing.
Vehicles: Here is a whole range of optimizations. The MD540 Night bird, the Ka-520 Super Hokum and the AH-64GX Apache War chief were all attenuated. The exact changes read below. Basically, the damage was reduced by the miniguns of all vehicles. Furthermore, the unmanned helicopter UAV-1 returns in portal mode.
The air cushion boats were annoyed. What it has, you see here:

Weapons: From the beginning there were complaints from the community that with some arms enemies were hard to hit. This was due to the so-called blooming effect, which describes the scattering of the balls. This should now be lower and make the gameplay so more precisely. This affects all firearms up to shotgun. In addition, the SMG PP-29 increases the recoil.
Bugs: Of course, errors will be corrected again this time. Among them also the annoying revive bug, through which it could happen that the timer for a respawn does not run when you go close to walls, rocks or water. That will be bypassed now by automatically resisting an invisible timer after 30 seconds.

Further updates in sight
Today’s patch already takes important points before, but that Battlefield 2042 is still not a flawless experience. Therefore, two more updates are to follow this year alone — the first in early December and the second sometime just before Christmas. And 2022 will continue the maintenance work. Important issues for the future are the server stability, the balancing and motivating progress system.
