Battlefield 2042: Vehicles and weapons adapted with update
As announced, DICE has now rolled out the second update after the official launch of Battlefield 2042.
On Xbox Series X, the download size is 1.1 GB.
Today's update critical errors were treated and balance changes to vehicles and weapons were made.
Thus, for example, the vertical recoil of the PP-29 was increased and generally reduced the scattering for all weapons (except Schrotflinte).
The vehicles NCAA Hovercraft, MD540 Night bird, Ka-520 Super Hokum and AH-64GX Apache was also attenuated to War chief, to bring them more to the level of other vehicles.
Also, a bug has been fixed where you could not be revived.
