Battlefield 2042 recently received a new update that adjusted the aim assist on controllers, nerfed weapons, and fixed several bugs.

Aim Assist

Playing a first-person shooter game with a controller can be quite difficult for those who aren’t used to it. Most shooter games come with aim assist enabled to make the experience more enjoyable. In this update, the developers adjusted the aim assist on controllers to make sure it feels smoother and consistent while tracking enemies.

Weapon Nerfs

The developers nerfed the RAH-68 Huron and YG-99 Hannibal 30mm Cannon, which are part of the Stealth Helicopter. They were too powerful against infantry as they could be fired for a long time with almost no counterplay. The nerf increased the overheating rate to give players a window to take them down.
