Here's everything we know about the latest update in Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield 2042 Update #3: What's New and What's Changed
According to Battlefield 2042 developers, in the week following Update #3, Weekly Missions will make their way onto the Battlefield. There will be a total of three varying missions each week which you can track via the main menu. Completing a mission will reward you with player XP. Finishing all of the available missions that week will earn you a unique cosmetic reward.
In Battlefield Portal, EA is also adding new game mode layouts for Rush on all All-Out Warfare maps, as well as adding several new templates to the Builder, and a new custom mode called Vehicle Team Deathmatch, which allows you to utilize combat vehicles in custom experiences. It will also support logic created in the Rules Editor, allowing players to spawn at team HQ and adding more options when creating custom games.
There are also several improvements within the Collection screen menus to make customizing your loadout and Plus Menu easier. It’s now also easier to understand which attachments are locked, in use or newly unlocked within your Collection. UI elements during gameplay have also received enhancements. You’ll notice increased visibility and reduced clutter through for example player world icons now scaling with distance. EA also added IFF (Identify Friend or Foe) marker improvements, and indicators for nearby players who you can revive or be revived by, or who are low on ammo or health. There should also be smoother transitioning between game menus, the Options menu, and matchmaking.
Lastly, the Battlefield 2042 developers are adding a new logic option to the Rules Editor that checks the source of fatal damage to a player; e.g. maybe from a melee weapon or rifle.
In terms of gameplay, the Battlefield team have patched over 150 individual fixes, small changes, and improvements across all maps, such as spawning, visual glitching or collision issues. Audio, rendering and interaction improvements and fixes for weapons, vehicles and Specialists are also included.
