Battlefield 2042’s Latest Update Addresses Balance Issues and More
The Battlefield franchise is one of the most popular in the video game history. It was a leader in the FPS genre. Since the release of Battlefield 2042, Dice and Electronic Arts, its developer and publisher, have been working on improving the game as it left many fans and gamers sorely disappointed. Today, Dice is prepared to release Update #4.1 that will introduce fixes, balance changes and quality of life improvements among other content into the game.
In this update, the key changes are as follows:
- The overall power of Boris’s SG-36 Sentry Gun has been reduced
- Angel can no longer provide Armor Plates via his Supply Bag
- Stock weapons now handle better through improved base recoil. To compensate, we’ve slightly reduced the recoil benefits provided by attachments
- All-Out Warfare playlists have been updated with new setups, removing Breakthrough 128 from the list of options on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC only.
In All-Out Warfare, the developers removed the option based on community feedback. As a result, with 64-player combat, the developers hope that each players will feel valuable and important on the battlefield and that there is more teamwork involved.
Fans can look forward to the next update, Season 1. The developers expect the release of Season 1 in early June and will provide more information on that content including its Update Notes closer to its release.
