Update 2.2.0 for Battlefield 2042 is now live on all platforms and it brings some really exciting things.

One of the new features in Update 2.2.0 is the Persistent Server. As the name implies, a Persistent Server is one that remains visible in the Server Browser within the Battlefield Portal even when there are no active players inside it.

Those who own a Premium Battle Pass can host one active server per account. Currently, the server will remain visible for up to seven days from any last player activity. So long as someone is active in that Persistent Server, it will be up indefinitely.

Players who will host a Persistent Server have access to the same features within the Battlefield Portal, including:

  • Enabling Cross-Play
  • Allowing players to follow a Server
  • Setting a welcome and match message
  • Password protecting a Server
  • Admin features for the Host

New Vault Weapons

Three Vault Weapons have been added in the latest patch for Battlefield 2042. The first is the ACW-R, a lightweight assault rifle that uses recoil-reducing rounds. Players who need a stable and reliable weapon might want to look into this one.

The second weapon of the bunch is the AKS-74u. This originated from Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and it excels in close-quarters combat, thanks to its high fire rate. Just remember to keep it under control because its recoil leaves much to be desired.

The third and final weapon included in this update is the MP412 REX. This may look small compared to the previously-mentioned guns, but this revolver packs a punch. The only downside here is that it only carries six rounds in total, so players need to reload often if they’re not able to kill their foes in a couple of shots.
