Battlefield series, plagued with problematic launches, is struggling one more time with bugs and errors. Although developers are stating that they are working on fixing the bugs and making the game playable there wasn’t any significant developments until now. Today, EA DICE launched the day one patch for the game.
Although the patch does not fix most of the bugs, it addresses the most critical errors. Therefore, the game should now be playable for most of the console and PC players. Keep in mind that the game is in an “early access” mode, thus it is not completely released yet. Below, you can find the full patch notes.
Battlefield 2042 day one patch notes
- Implemented server side upgrades that are targeted at reducing instances of rubber banding, often experienced in the later part of a round in All-Out Warfare modes.
- Significantly reduced instances of stuttering when playing on Breakaway. If the silos are destroyed, it should no longer reduce performance on the server.

- Adjusted the animations for Falck during the end of round sequence to ensure that she is displayed correctly.
- Updated a skin earnable for Boris via mastery progression with a new name: Gator.

- PC only – Enabled Specialist selection in Hazard Zone via mouse interaction, removing the need to lock in your selection with the spacebar.
