Battlefield 2042 launch wasn’t exactly smooth sailing. The developer has released multiple updates to address several issues. A recent patch went live today that brings general improvement, balancing changes, and bug fixes. It will also be the last update for this year. So, expect future updates next year.

The highlights of the patch are mentioned below:

  • Players that are not the Party Leader can now cancel while waiting in a queue
  • Xbox - Cross-Play can now be enabled/disabled in the Options menu on Xbox
  • Ranger’s effective combat range and overall health has been decreased
  • Made various tweaks to the overall audio experience to improve clarity, distance, and directional perception
  • Removed bounce from Underbarrel Grenades when firing at short distances
  • 40mm AP Grenades now properly damage vehicles
  • Adjusted dispersion values for most weapons, which results in a faster dispersion decrease when tap firing or doing short bursts
  • Adjusted dispersion increases for most weapons. It now takes slightly longer for weapons to become overly inaccurate in sustained fire
  • Adjusted the recoil values to prevent over-aggressive recoil jumps for the AK24, LCMG, PKP-BP, SFAR-M GL, and PP-29
  • Improved hip-fire accuracy for all SMGs to make them better stand out from other automatic weapon archetypes
  • LMG dispersion and recoil lowered to improve performance in sustained fire
  • Additional improvements to recoil control for all weapons, more specifically automatic weapons.
  • Increased close range damage and consistency of the MCS-880 when using Buckshot Shell or Flechette Shells
  • We’re reducing the Ground Vehicle 30-mm Cannon effectiveness versus infantry. It now overheats faster, has a slightly reduced rate of fire and blast damage, and increased fall off damage at a distance
    • Rate of Fire 350 > 330
    • Heat Per Bullet 0.13 > 0.14
    • Heat Drop Per Second 0.5 > 0.475
    • Blast Damage 20 > 18
  • LCAA Hovercraft - 40-mm GPL Grenade Launcher
    • Blast Damage lowered from 55 > 35
  • The 40-mm Utility Pod upwards firing angle is now easier to use
  • EBAA Wildcat - 57-mm Cannon
    • Removed dispersion
    • Ammo 12 > 8
    • Impact Damage 85 > 75
    • Blast Damage 70 > 35
