Battlefield 2042’s Third Major Update Includes More Than 150 Fixes

Bat­tle­field 2042’s third major update has arrived, and it’s brought with it over 150 bug fix­es, improve­ment, and adjust­ments across the game.

These changes include improved lev­el geom­e­try so play­ers don’t get stuck, fix­es to spawn­ing issues, numer­ous col­li­sion issues have been adjust­ed, as well as the removal of var­i­ous visu­al glitches.

This is just a small por­tion of what DICE added into Bat­tle­field 2042. The UI also saw some­what of an over­haul. The col­lec­tion screen was adjust­ed to make it eas­i­er to use, along with being more clear as to what play­ers are select­ing. New indi­ca­tors for downed allies that can be revived and indi­ca­tors for play­ers can pro­vide ammo or health have been added. Ene­my vehi­cles and play­ers will now also dis­play health bars at cer­tain distances.

Bat­tle­field Por­tal got some big addi­tions as well. Apart from the num­ber of bug fix­es, new builder options were also added: Rush game modes for all of 2042’s All-Out War­fare maps, a new vehi­cle team death­match mode, and new offi­cial tem­plates for game types like Gun Mas­ter and Infection.

This update also final­ly address­es the hit reg­is­tra­tion issues that have been a nui­sance since Bat­tle­field 2042 launched. That includes one that was caus­ing bul­lets to deal no dam­age to ene­my tar­gets, DICE did say in the patch notes that “fur­ther improve­ments are still being inves­ti­gat­ed” regard­ing the issue.

The update also seems to have brought a bug to PC play­ers, not allow­ing them to look left or right. You can check out the full patch notes for Update #3, as detailed by DICE, below.
