Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1 drops tomorrow – bullet hit registration fixes, balance changes, audio improvements and bug fixes


From Press Release:

Last week we made Update #3 available to you which included a large set of changes to improve your gameplay experience. We wanted to get those changes in your hands as soon as possible, and now we are following up with this week’s update, as promised, filled with further fixes and balance changes.

Update #3.1 arrives on December 9. Here is a short summary of key changes to expect:

  • Improvements to bullets hit registration consistency.

  • Balance changes for bullet dispersion and recoil

  • Further balance changes to Ground Vehicle 30mm, 40mm, and 57mm Cannons to reduce their effectiveness against infantry

  • A fix for a rare bug where a player could appear invisible to enemies

  • Fixes for several bugs related to Grenades and Launchers

  • Improvements to the menu flow for Xbox players to make it easier to opt-out of Cross-Play

  • Multiple audio improvements to enhance your overall sound experience, focused on clarity, distance and directional perception

Update #3.1 is our last game update before the start of the holidays. That means our teams will take a break towards the end of this month and return in the new year with fresh eyes ready to go on the road to Season One. We’ll see you again in the new year where we’ll talk more on further changes and improvements you can expect for Battlefield 2042.

The full update notes are available below. We’ll keep you informed on the roll out of the update and what’s next over on the @BattlefieldComm Twitter account. Here you can also follow along with our tracking of Known Issues, and changes that we’re able to make in real time.

Happy Holidays,

The Battlefield team
