Battlefield 2042 – Update 2.1 is Live With Renewal Rework, Polaris RZR Vehicle, and More

Battlefield 2042

DICE’s latest update for Battlefield 2042 is now live as part of Season 2: Master of Arms. It features a revamped version of Renewal, adding new cover and improvements to the terrain. There are also three new Vault Weapons for All-Out Warfare – the P90, GOL Sniper Magnum, and the M1911 – along with the Polaris RZR vehicle.

Renewal’s rework places objectives and flags closer, reducing travel time and allowing players to see action sooner. Certain parts of the map are now gone, and the new military fortifications are destructible, thus lending more to the overall feel. Other improvements include balance tuning for attack and transport helicopters along with the Nightbird and reducing instances of mouse input latency.

Check out some of the changelog below and the full patch notes here. A new event is also slated for mid-October, focusing on infantry-only gameplay with close-quarters combat. More details are coming later, but new cosmetics will be available to earn. Stay tuned in the meantime.
