The developers of Battlefield 2042 have tried to balance the game by nerfing one of its most powerful weapons, hovercrafts. Despite this change many players weren’t satisfied with the new changes and are petitioning for a patch.
When Battlefield 2042’s second post-launch update goes live later this week, the game’s feared hovercrafts and Nightbird helicopters will be nerfed.
That’s also when a remedy for a nagging revive problem will be released, which prevents players from reviving teammates if their bodies are too near to or interact with the level’s geometry.
The second post-launch update for Battlefield 2042 also aims to fix a more unusual glitch that caused players to be unable to respawn, forcing them to abandon the game.
Hovercraft Patch Fix and Battlefield 2042 Revive
According to a tweet from the publisher, “the LCAA Hovercraft will be re-equipped with lesser armor, decreasing its health, and we’re toning down some of its weapons.” “The MD540 Nightbird’s weapons will be tuned in the same way.”
It’s unknown whether or not Battlefield 2042’s hovercrafts will be unable to defy gravity and climb buildings as a result of this upgrade.
The game’s second post-launch update also seeks to fix an issue that caused in missing loadouts and re-enable the UAV-1 on Bad Company 2 battlefields.
The second post-launch update for Battlefield 2042 is set to release at the end of this week.
Electronic Arts has said that “a bigger and more comprehensive upgrade” would be released before the end of 2021, although it has yet to specify what additions and repairs will be included.
Players were disappointed by missing features, the game’s performance, and some design choices such as Specialists replacing conventional classes when the first-person shooter was released to mostly negative reviews on Steam.
Outside of Hazard Zone, Specialists didn’t do much for me, and the performance was constantly shaky when I evaluated Battlefield 2042, but the game is still a lot of fun, particularly if you play through its Portal mode.
Battlefield 2042 is currently available on PC, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4.
