The current version of Battlefield 2042 has some problems.

Unfortunately, when starting the game in Battlefield 2042 you have to take into account the fact that the current version still has a lot of bugs. What bugs? DICE and EA have published a list of those of which they are aware (via MP1st).

  1. First of all, they concern the maps. Some players may encounter problems with the operation of servers when destroying some elements of the environment or with incorrect displaying of some objects.
  2. Secondly, they are connected with bots. Sometimes they are unable to resurrect fallen comrades during the fight.
  3. Thirdly, you can encounter problems with the interface. These include, for example, the lack of subtitles in tutorial videos, the constant display of a message that the game is being installed even though it is already on the hard drive, the failure to load the player card after being killed by an enemy or the failure to save certain things in the Battlefield Portal mode.
  4. Fourthly, there are bugs related to progression. Some of the items you gain may simply not appear in your inventory.
  5. Fifthly, not everything seems to be right with weapons and gadgets. This includes the inability to launch a drone when prone and target enemies with it, or the inability to stow a parachute after landing.
  6. Sixthly, there are problems with vehicles. We are talking about vertical aiming or displaying their models.
  7. Seventhly, in Hazard Zone , you may encounter problems with the operation of the mouse when selecting specialists (this can be solved by pressing the space bar) or reviving companions.

More details can be found here.

DICE admits that the published list, although quite substantial, is not complete. It includes only items that have the biggest priority when it comes to fixing. Some of them will be eliminated with the day one patch, which will see the light of day on November 19.

Battlefield 2042 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
