New 'Battlefield 2042' Update Completely Overhauls Weapons, Fixes Some Major Issues

After an admittedly rough launch period, it seems DICE is taking the first steps forward towards improving Battlefield 2042 in a big way.

In an update scheduled for today (November 25), DICE will make a number of substantial changes to the futuristic military shooter, including a complete overhaul to the way weapons handle.

Take a look at Battlefield 2042 in action below!

Weapon handling just so happens to be one of the biggest complaints Battlefield 2042 players have had with the game so far, so it's heartening to see DICE move to address it so quickly. The new update will reduce bullet spread for all weapons when aiming down sights, effectively making guns much easier to user. There'll also be improved accuracy for a slew of individual weapons while aiming when standing still. Finally, bullet spread will decrease much quicker when using single or burst-fire modes, which means better accuracy at longer ranges.

It's a hefty number of changes, and it'll be interesting to see just how responsive the community is to them. As with any multiplayer shooter, weapons are tweaked, nerfed, and buffed multiple times, so this is unlikely to be the final weapon tuning update. You can read a full list of the latest changes to Battlefield 2042 over on the EA DICE blog post.

This isn't the only substantial update currently planned for Battlefield 2042, either. A larger patch scheduled for December will further address weapon accuracy in the game's Portal mode, and will be nerfing the NWT-50's to be less effective against vehicles.

You'll be glad to know that both patches will also tune up things like PC performance, experience progression, server issues, and more. Hopefully this is the start of Battlefield 2042 becoming the game we'd hoped it would be. Watch this space.
