It seems that folks at DICE and EA are trying to redeem themselves by launching Update 3 for Battlefield 2042. This update brings much quality of life improvements and bug fixes.

Furthermore, weekly missions will start rolling out next week. Completing each mission will grant XP and finishing all of them will give you a unique cosmetic reward.

In terms of quality of life changes, you will find less clicking required if you want to customize your loadout. Also, more UI elements have been added to help you identify things much easier. For instance, player indicators are now available to show you who you can revive, who is low on health and ammo, and many more.
