Battlefield 2042 - Update #2.0.1

[ Edited ]



On Tuesday, September 13 at 08:00 UTC we are releasing Update #2.0.1. 


Alongside a small number of bug fixes we are correcting the visual effects (VFX) of Paik’s EMG-X Scanner for which we Hotfixed the range and duration on September 1. As a result, the Scanner’s VFX no longer extends beyond its effective range. We have also decreased the uptime of the Location Revealed notification for Scanned targets as you’ve told us this notification was intrusive during gameplay.


The next game update includes the Renewal rework, the Polaris RZR and new Vault Weapons and we’ll talk more about that at the end of September / early October.


Stay Informed

Follow us on the @BattlefieldComm Twitter account to stay informed on the roll out of our updates. You can also follow along with our tracking of Known Issues and further game changes  we’re making via our Battlefield forums.




  • The Avancys and AM40 no longer display visible weapon shake when firing after switching from a secondary weapon
  • Resolved instances where red containers could glitch inside the ship on Stranded
  • Resolved an issue where the “Interact” button would sometimes trigger repeatedly. This could for example cause you to enter a vehicle again directly after exiting 


  • The EMG-X Scanner VFX now matches the maximum range of this ability (25m)
  • The Location Revealed notification for spotted target now remains on screen for 0.3s


This announcement may change as we listen to community feedback and continue developing and evolving our Live Service & Content. We will always strive to keep our community as informed as possible.

@Straatford87 Nothing on the swapped icons for Sundance's grenades or Irish's items?

Also the Season badge progression bug? any update on that?
We had a workaround hosting a portal server but it doesn't work anymore

This is truly nuts. We have things like aim assist, input registration, mouse input, headshot multipliers, incorrect weapon attachments and declscriptions, bugged throwing animations, the m16, underbarel smokes, and so forth that need to be fixed. WHY is THIS priority over the rest?

@CrookzFPS Sometimes it's not about being priority, it's about being fast to change.

Fix the Sundance Grenades!!! How could it be broken? There are so many important problems in the game, and you don’t understand what you are doing!
