Since its early November 12 launch for Gold and Ultimate players, Battlefield 2024 has had its fair share of technical glitches, but none are as as entertaining as the game’s gravity-defying hovercraft. Hovercraft in the game have been seen mounting precipitous cliffs, driving right up the sides of buildings, and even taking down a helicopter while soaring through the skies, according to videos shared on social media.
While the multiplayer-only Battlefield 2024 is still in restricted release, with Gold and Ultimate editions of the game as well as a 10-hour free trial for EA Play members, there’s still plenty of footage of the game’s overpowered hovercraft floating around the internet.

Videos released to social media show the hovering vehicles creeping up the sides of buildings and flying through the air, despite the fact that they are only designed to hover a short distance above the ground. While some gamers believe that this makes the hovercrafts more entertaining, others on social media have demanded for the vehicles to be nerfed or disabled until the flaws are resolved.
Check out this crazy wall climbing glitch you can do with the hovercraft in 2042.

Battlefield 2024 came out with a list of known faults, and DICE encouraged players to report any further bugs they found in the game. A handful of bug fixes and interim changes have already been released ahead of the game’s full release on November 19, though it’s unclear whether DICE will address the game’s wall-climbing issue.
Battlefield 2024 will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on November 19th.
