If you hope that the Battlefield 2042, 12th game series will continue and improve on the above qualities… Then choose to enjoy other games while waiting until November 2022. Or any time in the future when DICE decides to correct the mistakes they’ve made with Battlefield 2042 at the moment.

Competition of replicas

With attribution to 64 players has been guaranteed and maintained by Battlefield. Since the series was born in 2002 for many different reasons, most notably, this number has been confirmed by the DICE’s CEO, Patrick Soderlund. That they have tested 128 players since Battlefield 3 and the results were not positive.

However, when the Battle Royale genre with a capacity of more than 100 people gradually ascended the throne, DICE could not stand by.

The 128-player battlefield is also coming to the “All-Out Warfare” portion of Battlefield 2042. But it’s hard to tell if this change will be positive because… there’s an 80% chance that you won’t actually realize its influence.

That’s because every map in the game is also increased in size by 2-4 times compared to before. As well as the number of points occupied in Conquest mode increases from 1-3 points depending on the map. The results are quite erratic, sometimes you will participate in the competition for points that are longer and more fierce than before, other times you will feel like… walking more, being shot in the back or from the other side. mountain peaks 200m away are also more frequent.

There are so many things that are not complete enough

Among the 7 maps of Battlefield 2042, the writer can really only assume that each Manifest and Orbital belongs to… playable level. Nearly the entire map in the game has a big problem. That they have too many empty plains, ie infantry soldiers have no place to hide, can be raided from all four directions. The aircraft could not escape the target lock missile because there was not enough terrain in the environment to disrupt visibility; ground-based vehicles such as tanks are “bait” for grenade launchers and aircraft from all sides.

This problem is aggravated in Breakthrough mode. Despite the increase in the number of players. The attack/defense score remained at 2, causing the entire infantry to completely surrender to the air-cushioned canoes that launched at 100km/h at the point of attack. Feel free to discharge bullets and then glide to the edge of the map to heal.

It’s so chaotic that both factions in this mode look as if two fighting bulls are competing in such a way that one exhausts the other first. It leaves no room for tactics, teamwork, navigating the terrain to cut the flow of reinforcements.

All you can do is go around point A or B and hope your teammates on the other side are lucky to overwhelm the enemy, that’s all.

The number of members in a team reduced from 5 to 4. As well as the ability to directly pick up ammo bags from other players are just two of the bright features related to the team play in Battlefield 5 that the game changes or dropped. And the introduction of the “Specialist” system made party play unnecessarily difficult to define.

Hazard Zone and Portal modes can’t fill the weak point

Hazard Zone will be quite familiar to those who have experienced Escape from Tarkov or Hunt: Showdown.

Eight four-player squads will be dropped onto a large map, hunt for hard drives, and engage in PvP and PvE. After completing the mission, you can withdraw your troops at the helicopter. The points you get can be used to unlock weapons and equipment for the next playthrough.

It sounds new, but actually, this mode is less attractive than Battlefield 5’s Firestorm. Battlefield 2042’s shooting mechanics are too simple and lack the heart-pounding feeling of Tarkov and Hunt: Showdown and rewards, available to you each time you play are just… Points to unlock equipment for each Hazard Zone.

This mode is not built on the inherent risk-based randomness of the two games above and of the Battle Royale genre. Whether you win or lose, what you get is just the number of points used to exchange get equipment, to continue… Win and lose in the next play.

It is too poor in content, too shallow in design, does not give players motivation to participate. And does not have any significant rewards for winners. The Hazard Zone is simply the “fat” part of Battlefield 2042, completely meaningless and worthless. Existing only for the purpose of adding bullet points to the game’s promotional material.

The portal not only allows you to customize content from 4 different versions of Battlefield to your liking. But it also has Playlists for you to join immediately with the push of a button.

Digging deep into the Portal, this tool reveals quite a few inadequacies. Most notably, the Logic editor for some reason is locked if you choose Conquest or Rush mode. And it also doesn’t allow you to edit vehicles and their properties.

Closing thought

Hazard Zone is too poor in content, too shallow in design, does not give players the motivation to participate. And does not have any significant rewards for the winners.

You can immediately experience Noshahr Canals 24-player Rush mode if you want to be nostalgic for the past. Or try some interesting game modes like Zombies created by other players.
