Battlefield 2042’s assault rifles and bloom are getting some much-needed TLC


EA is tweaking Battlefield 2042’s armoury of weapons now that the game is within the wild, and it appears to be like like assault rifles and bloom are of specific curiosity. One of Dice’s lead game designers, Florian ‘Drunkkz3’ Le Bihan, has been chatting with followers on Twitter, and the state of the sandbox is proving a preferred subject of dialog.

One fan asked if the staff may do one thing about weapon bloom as “all it does is make the game feel random and inconsistent”, opining that assault rifles have means an excessive amount of recoil specifically. Le Bihan assures the fan that “it’s being looked at” earlier than telling another player that the staff is testing assault rifle for total steadiness and bullet unfold.

While the state of Battlefield’s assault rifles pops up right here and there, Le Bihan confirms that just a few weapons are getting modifications concerning their bullet unfold. “We’re looking at weapons already and are planning on a few changes regarding spread,” he shares. “No date or specifics to share for the changes yet, though. Dispersion / spread / bloom has been a thing in all past Battlefield games – it’s important for weapon variety and balance as well as creating value for attachments. It shouldn’t be a problem unless it’s too much or increasing too rapidly, which is the problem today that is being looked at. And yes, BFV had spread.”

Le Bihan doesn’t share when these modifications are coming precisely, although he tells one fan that some gun increase modifications have been made on their facet already, so it’s now “a matter of getting the changes in one of the upcoming updates”.

You can Le Bihan’s conversations on Twitter if you happen to fancy it, although the publish on Battlefield 2042’s subreddit is far simpler to comply with.

As we now have beforehand reported, Dice has two extra efficiency updates deliberate for 2021, with Community supervisor Adam Freeman explaining in a weblog publish that we’ll discover out extra within the “coming weeks”.

“Over the next 30 days, we’re presently scheduled to release two further updates, with our next update delivering more fixes and improvements that we’ve identified during this first week of Early Access, and a larger and more substantial update following after that,” he says.

While Battlefield 2042 holds a gentle curiosity – SteamDB has the height concurrent participant rely as being 105,397 gamers 4 days in the past – studies of bugs and the like are a typical sight on boards.

In our Battlefield 2042 evaluate, Christian says that the “near-future sequel has all the components it needs to become a classic entry in the multiplayer series, but it feels like 2042 is many updates away from reaching its full potential”. Hopefully the upcoming patches will do exactly that.
