Battlefield 2042 2.1 patch notes reveal incoming seasonal event
The patch notes for Battlefield 2042‘s next update includes mention of a seasonal event coming in the next few weeks.
Battlefield 2042‘s 2.1 update will not only bring with it the Renewal map rework and some new vault weapon when it launches tomorrow, September 27th, but it will also eventually introduce the game’s first seasonal event. Referred to as “The Liquidators,” this event will take place in “mid-October” and will include “new earnable cosmetics alongside infantry only gameplay with tight playspaces and intense close-quarters combat.”
As for the actual content launching tomorrow, the Renewal rework stands out as the main highlight. The intent with the rework “is to improve the infantry and close quarter combat experience” by moving objectives closer together, changing the terrain, and providing more cover.
Update 2.1 will also introduce three new vault weapons—weapons from older games—to All-Out Warfare. These include the Battlefield 3‘s P90 SMG and Battlefield: Bad Company 2‘s GOL Sniper Magnum and M1911 sidearm. Players unlock vault weapons by completing assignments.
The full patch notes signal several changes to vehicles, too. These include buffs to the stealth helicopters’ anti-vehicle capabilities and nerfs to the air transport miniguns.
Battlefield 2042 is available on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
