Battlefield 2042’s Master of Arms Update is finally out. We are going to cover the new assignments, improved Home Menu, and bug fixes featured in this update.

New Feature

In this update, the developers released a new feature called Assignments. These Assignments allow players to unlock new weapons and even gameplay content from a previous season. Being able to access older content is a great way for newer players to experience things they’ve missed. The best part is that it will be permanently unlocked. So, you don’t have to rush anything to finish these Assignments.

Improved Home Menu

The developers improved the Home Menu in this update because the players complained that showing only three modes felt limiting. So, they listed all the game modes, including Conquest, Breakthrough, Portal, Rush, and Hazard Zone in one area. Oh yeah, Rush is now back and it is here to stay for good.
