'Battlefield 2042' Players Have Found An Incredibly Broken Helicopter Exploit

'Battlefield 2042' Players Have Found An Incredibly Broken Helicopter Exploit

Battlefield 2042 has gotten off to a rough start. DICE and EA's long-awaited futuristic military shooter hasn't launched in the best shape, and is currently burdened with all manner of bugs and missing features.


The game is currently one of the top ten worst-rated Steam games of all time, and frustrated players have assembled alarmingly long lists of key features from previous Battlefield games that simply haven't appeared in this new instalment.


It's a pretty sorry sight, to see such an antipcated game flailing around like this. DICE is, of course, already committed to fixing the game's many problems and making it as good as it can be. But right now? It's a bit of a mess.


Still, we can at least try to laugh at some of the game's stranger glitches, can't we? I'm going to, anyway. Feel free to join me.

The maps in Battlefield 2042 are far bigger than any of the battlegrounds from previous entries in the series. This is all in aid of supporting 128 players, but it's also managed to cause a unique set of issues. As discovered by Reddit user Darktoothone, some of the buildings on the Hourglass map aren't actually the solid objects they appear to be. It turns out a few of these skyscrapers are missing collision boxes, which means players can fly straight through them as if they aren't even there.

As you can see below, a few sneakier players cottoned onto this fact a while ago and have already started using these hollowed out buildings as the perfect place to hide away from enemies.


I've no doubt this is one of the many problems DICE will have patched out soon enough, but that the game released with non-corporeal buildings at all is... problematic. We can't help but wonder what might have been if Battlefield 2042 had just been delayed by a little bit longer.
