It's fair to say that Battlefield 2042 launched in a fairly sorry state, with plenty of issues affecting players. Developer DICE has now outlined what fixes will be coming before the end of the year, with two major updates planned to drop over the next few weeks.
Performance and server stability have been identified as two of the main areas of docus, and following multiple backend changes since launch have improved things, the developer says there are still some “critical issues” that need ironing out. Update #2, which is due to release on 25th November 2021, should fix an issue that saw players unable to spawn on the server with their intended loadout.
Gunplay and Balance is one of the other key areas of focus, with DICE investigating the consistency of Aim Assist. One of the most frequent player complaints has been regarding the spread when firing assult rifles, which will be reduced in multiple ways. Here's the breakdown across the two updates.
Update #3 appears to be the big one, with many of the necessary fixes and changes coming alongside it in early December, and you can read the early patch notes for that update down below.
