Battlefield 2042 will soon introduce major changes to some of the game’s most popular vehicles as part of the upcoming Season 5 update, New Dawn.
The vehicle payloads are being overhauled when the update rolls out on June 7. DICE developer’s goal is to make the roles of different vehicles more clearly defined. One big way DICE is looking to do that is by removing explosive weapon options from some of the most used ground vehicles in the game, including the LATV4 Recon. Although the jeep serves as a means of transport, it can now be equipped with a variety of explosive weapons. That will change in Season 5, with those weapons being replaced with anti-infantry weapons.
“While explosives have their place on the battlefield, they should be a strategic choice rather than a default choice or an option available to all vehicles,” DICE wrote in a report. . Blog subject-specific.
Other vehicles, such as the M5C Bolte and EBAA Wildcat, have also been weaponized to better suit their specific roles. In the case of the Bolte, that means making it a more powerful “hit-and-run” vehicle rather than a vehicle that sits in the back and fires explosives from a distance. Meanwhile, the Wildcat will be adapted to better fulfill its role as an air defense vehicle.
Additional upcoming changes to vehicles include improvements to the jet’s gameplay to make them more responsive, the addition of thermal sighting to vehicles, and the ability to detach targets and turn heads. for tanks. The option to equip the Cyber Warfare Protection System will also come to all vehicles, previously only available to the LATV4 Recon.
Like previous seasonal updates, Battlefield 2042 Part 5 will also introduce new weapons and gadgets for players to create mayhem, in this case the XCE-ray action rifle, the GEW-46 assault rifle, and the BFP .50 handgun. In addition, players also receive three new types of grenades to play with, including mini grenades, anti-tank grenades, and spring grenades. Unlike previous seasons, Season 5 will be the first since the game’s launch to not include a new playable Expert.
A new map, titled Reclaimed, also arrives with the new update, showing players fighting over an abandoned factory reclaimed by nature. While it won’t arrive on Season 5’s launch date and time, a remake of one of Battlefield 2042’s launch maps, Hourglass, will be out towards the end of the season.
Battlefield 2042 has slowly reinvented itself since its launch in November 2021, when the game was bogged down by technical issues and negative player feedback about things like game bugs. lack of voice chat or even transcripts. since then DICE added a scoreboard, reworked most of the game’s starter mapsadded new Expert characters and even reintroduce the franchise’s famous class systemsomething that was noticeably absent when the game came out.
