DICE is set to launch a new patch for Battlefield 2042 sometime this week. Update 3.2.1 will revert the changes made to Drum and Extended Magazines that were not disclosed in the previous major update.

If you’ve used weapons equipped with Drum/Extended Magazine attachments in Battlefield 2042 recently, you might have noticed that it takes a longer time to aim down sights. Because this was not stated in the patch notes of Update 3.2.0, you can be excused for thinking that it was a problem on your end. Unsurprisingly, the community did not like the “stealth” changes, so the company decided to revert them in the upcoming patch.

According to the Battlefield 2042 dev team, the changes to the said attachments didn't satisfy their standards for quality, and they will be reversed soon. Furthermore, they’re going back to the drawing board to find ways to improve them. Hopefully, they will disclose information about any adjustments made to the game moving forward.

Anyway, Update 3.2.1 will implement other tweaks and bug fixes as well, including the ones below:

  • FGM-148 Javelin
    • The FGM-148 Javelin can no longer lock onto the Tracer Dart while the dart is out of line of sight.
  • Tracer Dart Gun
    • The Tracer Dart will now correctly drop in height dependent on the distance it has to travel.
    • Reduced the projectile speed of the Tracer Dart from 500 m/s to 250 m/s.
    • The uptime of the Tracer Dart will now last 12 seconds instead of 40 seconds.
  • Unlock Descriptions will now correctly show for Class Badges on the reward screen after a match.
  • The description for Falck’s Combat Surgeon Trait now correctly states that she is able to revive faster, rather than revive to full health.
  • Fixed an issue where the time it took for firing when leaving sprint was much longer than expected with Assault Rifles.
  • Fixed an issue where the auto deploy of the parachute did not function properly.
  • The Assault Weapon Proficiency will no longer grant extra ammunition for Underbarrel Grenade Launchers.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause projectiles to not deal damage correctly when Specialists are facing down.
  • Fixed a minor desync issue that resulted in the player jumping in a slightly longer arch than expected. Don’t be alarmed, we didn’t put any springs in your boots!
  • Fixed an issue that would allow players to select any Gadget with any Specialist via Angel’s Loadout Crate.
Crawford - Mounted Vulcan
  • Increased the health of Crawford's Mounted Vulcan by 60%
  • Mounted Vulcan now lasts 7 seconds from the moment it begins firing to reaching its overheating point.
  • Players are no longer able to place down 4 Mounted Vulcans. One is enough!
  • You can no longer use Dozer's SOB-8 Ballistic Shield while also using a parachute, or whilst prone.

Battlefield 2042 Update 3.2.1 is expected to launch later this week.
