The Polaris RZR, the lightweight buggy that you can ride with a buddy, is now available in Battlefield 2042 as an in-world vehicle via the newly released Update 2.1.

This patch also introduces three iconic weapons from Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The first is the P90 - a compact weapon from Battlefield 3 that packs a punch, thanks to its 5.7 x 28mm armor-piercing bullets and 50-round magazine.

The second is the GOL Sniper Magnum, a German bolt action rifle famous for its amazing accuracy; perfect for killing enemies at great distances. And lastly, the M1911 is a classic 0.45 caliber sidearm equipped with a seven-round magazine specially made for the Allied Forces. Both of these weapons were staples in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

So, what other things were implemented in Update 2.1? Well, some specialists in Battlefield 2042 received notable bug fixes. For instance, the issue where Boris’ SG-36 Sentry Gun was occasionally able to shoot enemies through smoke has now been resolved.
