Battlefield 2042 Update 2.1 Adds Reworked Map & New Weapons
EA has released a new update for Battlefield 2042.
Check out the patch notes for Battlefield 2042 update 2.1 below:
The Liquidators Await
A special event is coming your way during mid-October. We’re looking forward to sharing full details with you at a later time. But for now… expect new earnable cosmetics alongside infantry only gameplay with tight playspaces and intense close-quarters combat.
Renewal – Map Improvement
Our intent for the map rework is to improve the infantry & close quarter combat experience. Flags and objectives are now significantly closer to each other. This will reduce the traversal time and overall ‘time to action’ when moving between sectors and objectives. To increase the impact of these changes, we decided to completely remove certain sections of the map that broke the game flow or were considered to be too far away.
We’ve worked with both the terrain and with a large amount of new military fortifications to provide more opportunities for cover. These assets transform the map, making it feel less pristine and more ready for war. A feeling enhanced during gameplay as the new military fortifications support destruction to greater extent than the original map design.
The Solar Station 1
The Solar Station remains the initial attack location in Breakthrough, only now it is heavily protected by huge concrete barriers, sturdy sandbags, shipping containers, and the large warehouses are perfect for hiding from air vehicles.
The Solar Station 2
Attacker vehicles will be crucial in helping in breaking down defenses. But be careful, enough stray shells can ignite a firestorm at this capture point.
Desert Terrain 1
The Terrain in Renewal has also been heavily reworked with a focus on providing clear infantry and vehicle paths and offering infantry better line of sight breakers and cover. When looking at our telemetry we could see that players did not move through the intended lanes across the desert terrain. The changes we made provide clearer paths for both infantry and vehicles.
The Battery Farm has had a simplification pass and now promotes more predictable fighting lanes and lines of sight. Additional cover has also been placed, but you should remain wary of skybound threats.
Check Point – Green side
The check point on the farm side is now heavily fortified. Attackers will be able to use the new cover to slowly work their way to their new objectives. Vehicles can be a threat to these defenses, but the plethora of cover means C5 may always lurk around the corner.
Approach to Synseco Building 1
The approach to the Synseco building is now heavily fortified, offering vital cover to attackers. But cover alone here will not be enough to succeed, attackers must push through quickly.
Approach to Synseco Building 2
The central road that connects the checkpoint to the Synseco building is now the fortified spine of the map.
Interior Synseco Capture Point 1
Interiors of the Synseco building are no longer pristine. Instead they are storage areas for the defenders, their ammo crates and storage units making great cover for close quarters combat.
Interior Synseco Hallway
Lines of sight in the hallways are now broken by sandbags and ammo crates, making these spaces viable defense points. Sandbags against windows offer some protection against enemy snipers, but also make for a great nest for you to return some marksmen fire of your own.
The first front line in the crucial building, defenders now have the luxury of sturdy defenses, forcing attackers to think twice about using the front door.
Fast and fun. The Polaris RZR is now available on the Battlefield as an in-world vehicle. Jump into this lightweight buggy with a teammate and zip across the Battlefield, surprising enemy infantry or gaining new, tactical positions.
New Vault Weapons
4 Battlefield Portal iconic weapons from the Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2 era are now available in the All-Out Warfare arsenal. You’ll unlock these Vault Weapons at your own pace via the new Assignment system.
P90 – Battlefield 3
A compact and capable weapon system firing 5.7x28mm armor-piercing rounds. It has three forward rails for a wide array of attachments. Comes with a 50 round magazine.
GOL Sniper Magnum – Bad Company 2
This German bolt action rifle provides exceptional performance and standoff capability. Its long range and accuracy makes it a great choice for special forces and counter terrorist units.
M1911 – Bad Company 2
Modified version of the classic .45 caliber sidearm for Allied forces. Seven round magazine.
Vehicles – 60mm Flak Weapon Pod
The 60mm Flak Weapon Pod was underperforming against air vehicles so we have increased its effectiveness. Alongside that change we have also reduced its damage toward infantry to further solidify its purpose.
AH-64GX Apache Warchief and KA-520 Super Hokum
We have observed that Stealth Helicopters have become the dominant Air Vehicle of choice since their introduction in Season 1. In Update 2.1, we are making several balance adjustments to the AH-64GX Apache Warchief and KA-520 Super Hokum to ensure all Helicopters have a dedicated purpose on the Battlefield. As a result, we’re increasing their anti-vehicle effectiveness.
MD540 Nightbird – Mounted 7.62mm Miniguns
We are updating the miniguns to ensure they remain powerful when actively managed, while reducing their effectiveness during continuous fire.
MV38-Condor / Mi-240 Super Hind – 7.62mm Minigun Pod
We have observed the Transport Helicopter 7.62mm Minigun Pod was mainly used for long range combat. We are making several balance adjustments to ensure its focus remains on intended defensive and close range use. It’s now more accurate, but with an overall decreased damage output and range while also overheating faster.
