Battlefield 2042 is set to receive a number of important changes to its core systems over the coming months. EA has indicated that it wants to make serious improvements to the game and the new 1.0 update is just one of many patches fans can expert. Here is a quick breakdown of the balance changes, fixes, and quality of life improvements that have been added in the new update.
Weapons received updated netcode to improve bullet hit registration. The devs also did a balance pass which includes increased projectile speeds for DMR’s and LMG’s, and improved accuracy for Shotguns. Multiple new XP events have been added, such as killing an enemy who recently wounded or killed a squadmate, or when an enemy vehicle you recently damaged is destroyed by a teammate and the occupants are killed.
Vehicles and Movement Improved
The number of available in-world vehicles has been increased for Conquest which should make it easier to move across the map. Sundance’s Wingsuit has been adjusted to lower overall flight time while making it easier to maneuver. To simplify their Specialty, the EMP Field Smart Explosive has been removed which is a much-needed change. All of these gameplay changes will be followed up with yet another update in July 2022 that will further improve upon these changes.
Massive Wingsuit Changes Added
The Wingsuit has been adjusted so it’s easier to maneuver while reducing the overall flight time to prevent players from staying in the air for too long. There are some hitbox changes for the Wingsuit as well as some changes to how it functions for movement. The devs have educed initial velocity boost when deploying from low heights and have increased velocity when deploying from greater heights. In addition to these changes, the elevation gain when pulling up to prevent getting higher up than the original starting position has also been adjusted. On Hourglass, the MAV could sometimes get stuck in a hole within sector B on Breakthrough, resulting in players being unable to exit. This hole should no longer cause claustrophobic panic as the issue has been fixed.
