'Battlefield 2042' First Major Update Fixes Hundreds Of Bugs

Battlefield 2042’s release has been a little messy so far. Though the game may be visually stunning, there have been quite a few gripes fans of the series have had with the final result. Oh and some things haven’t really worked exactly as planned, hovercrafts aren’t exactly able to climb skyscrapers with ease in real life right? But EA is committed to making the game work, and so the first large set of patch notes for Battlefield 2042 is huge.

Titled ‘Update 3’, the 0.3.0 update for Battlefield 2042 is changing a lot. Not any one of these changes is significant by itself, but overall hopefully the experience of the game should be vastly improved. That’s what players are hoping, at least. 

Here are some of our favourite Battlefield 2042 wins and fails…

For example, sometimes players wouldn’t be able to tell what action they were about to perform because the screen would just say “INTERACT”. Helpful. Now DICE has changed that so it expressly tells you what you’re about to do, like “CALL ELEVATOR” which is a lot clearer at least. 

If you’re experiencing cheaters, reporting is now easier as “Recent Players” now includes the whole lobby for you to browse. Matchmaking has been improved so there should be fewer occurrences of failed matchmaking.

In other quality of life changes, there are now weekly missions which will reward players with cosmetics. Also players dropping into the mode Hazard Zone for the first time will get 1000 credits to spend on equipment rather than just being dropped in with basic gear. A much needed alteration.

There are so many details that have been added or changed, I could go on forever - so here are the patch notes in full for you to browse at your own leisure.
