BF2042 Season 2

Battlefield 2042 Dev Update

Battlefield 2042 v1.2

Being just over halfway into Season 1, we hope you continue to enjoy the new content and are having a great summer. This week, Update 1.2 launches and we are excited about getting these new changes and improvements into your hands. It will be available to download and play on Tuesday, August 2.

What’s new?

This update includes not only new bug fixes, balance changes and Quality of Life improvements, but also the first of our planned launch map reworks, alongside the initial Style and Tone changes for some of our Specialists:

  • Kaleidoscope has been reworked to offer an improved gameplay flow through new cover assets, flag positions, terrain elevations and visual updates to several locations on the map
  • We are introducing the first Style and Tone change for our Specialists, which includes several updated character models
  • The power of the RAH-68 Huron and YG-99 Hannibal 30mm Cannon has been reduced by making it overheat at a much faster rate. This will help to limit their impact on infantry and bring it more inline with our balance
  • A Player Profile and Statistics page is now available in-game. It provides an overview of your performance and progression since launch
  • Aim Assist on Controllers has been adjusted to ensure it feels smoother and more consistent while tracking moving targets
  • The BSV-M Full Auto mode now receives an accuracy penalty, and High Power rounds now lose damage faster over distance

The full list of changes for Update 1.2 is available in the Changelog below.
