Battlefield 2042 Update 2 Patch Notes — Weapon Buffs And Vehicle Nerfs

The first of Bat­tle­field 2042’s updates has arrived. Update #2 is much small­er than Update #3, which is sched­uled to release ear­ly on this Decem­ber. How­ev­er, this small­er update does include a much-need­ed nerfs to a few vehi­cles, along with a glob­al weapon accu­ra­cy buff.

Those are not the only two cat­e­gories get­ting atten­tion though, some of Bat­tle­field 2042’s minor bugs have also been resolved. A bug that left play­ers unable to respawn after being downed should be fixed, as well as an issue that sent play­ers back to the menu after queu­ing for a Bat­tle­field Por­tal match. You can check out the full list of Bat­tle­field 2042 changes in Update #2 below.

Battlefield 2042 Update #2 patch notes

  • Bul­let spread has been reduced on all weapons except Shot­guns. This should result in bet­ter accu­ra­cy dur­ing gameplay
  • Increased PP-29 ver­ti­cal recoil to ensure that the weapon does not over­per­form when engag­ing out­side of its intend­ed com­bat range
  • Resolved an issue where play­ers who were killed close to obsta­cles such as walls or water were unable to be revived
  • Resolved instances where play­ers were stuck in a downed state and unable to respawn. We’ve also intro­duced a hid­den timer that will acti­vate after 30 sec­onds of being in a downed state that will force a rede­ploy should it be required
  • MD540 Night­bird Mount­ed 20mm Can­nons — we are reduc­ing the radius at which bul­lets do dam­age upon impact, and decreas­ing their splash damage
    • Reduced Blast Radius size from 3 to 2
    • Reduced Inner Blast Radius dam­age from 1.5 to 0.75
  • KA-520 Super Hokum — 30mm Can­non (side mount) — we are reduc­ing over­all dam­age and range at which bul­lets do full dam­age, while increas­ing the over­all bul­let spread
    • Reduced Blast Radius from 2 to 1.6
    • Reduced Blast Dam­age from 20 to 14
    • Reduced bul­let dam­age before Dam­age Fall Off starts 18 to 15
    • Reduced Dam­age Fall Off dis­tance from 200 to 180
    • Reduced bul­let dam­age at max Fall Off dis­tance from 8 to 6
    • Increased bul­let range and spread
  • AH-64GX Apache Warchief and KA-520 Super Hokum — 30mm Can­non — we are reduc­ing the radius at which bul­lets do dam­age upon impact, and decreas­ing their splash damage
    • Reduced Blast Dam­age from 20 to 18
    • Increased the Dam­age Fall Off for ene­mies that are fur­ther away from the bul­let impact center
  • We reduced the over­all dam­age of the Mini­gun for all Land Vehi­cles, along­side bul­let dam­age drop off now start­ing earlier
    • Reduced bul­let dam­age before Dam­age Fall Off starts from 18 to 13
    • Reduced Dam­age Fall Off dis­tance from 60 to 40
    • Reduced bul­let dam­age at max Fall Off dis­tance to 6
  • Equipped armor type for the LCAA Hov­er­craft has been adjust­ed which increas­es its vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty against dif­fer­ent weapon types
  • Bat­tle­field Por­tal — UAV‑1
    • The UAV‑1 has been re-enabled with­in Bat­tle­field Portal
    • Great­ly reduced health regen­er­a­tion delay and speed
    • Increased mis­sile dam­age against vehi­cles and infantry
    • The drone is now able to road­kill enemies
  • Break­through match­es will now cor­rect­ly end after the last sec­tor has been captured
  • Resolved an issue that caused play­ers queued for a match in Bat­tle­field Por­tal to be sent back to the menu, instead of join­ing the match when a slot became available
  • Made gen­er­al improve­ments to sta­bil­i­ty to pre­vent rare occur­rences of game crashing

Although fix­es for some of the biggest issues in Bat­tle­field 2042 are on the way, it might not be enough to fix the dam­age already done. Play­ers on Steam are cur­rent­ly leav­ing “most­ly neg­a­tive” reviews, with many say­ing the game is sim­ply unfinished.
