The first of two forthcoming “Battlefield 2042” patches is set to release on November 25. Battlefield 2042 Update #2 is much smaller than Update #3, which is due out in early December, but it does include some much-needed urgent vehicle nerfs as well as global weapon accuracy increases.
Aside from those two categories, “Battlefield 2042” gamers may expect to see some of the game’s smaller issues addressed. A fault that prevented players from respawning after being knocked out has been rectified, as has a problem that sent players back to the menu after waiting for a Battlefield Portal match. The entire list of changes in Update #2 of “Battlefield 2042” can be seen below.

While patches for some of “Battlefield 2042’s” flaws are on the road, some players may not be satisfied. “Battlefield 2042” is presently receiving “generally unfavorable” reviews, with many users citing glitches and a lack of legacy features as reasons.
