Battlefield 2042 launch may not have been very ideal, but thanks to today’s update, the state of the game is going to get a little better. Update 1.1.0 is the first update of Season 1: Zero Hour, and it brings several QoL features, balancing changes, and a ton of bug fixes.

Several DMRs are buffed for long-range combat, and the headshot multipliers of BSV-M/DM7, SVK, and VCAR are increased. The patch also buffed the bullet speed of BSV-M, SVK, VCAR, and DM7. They should hit their targets a little faster now.

You can read the highlights of the patch below.

  • Voice Chat options now show you which device is being used for voice input
  • A Party Leader icon has been added to the Social menu
  • Changing Squads while in a party now automatically sets your VoIP setting to Party
