Interesting to see Vega56 do so well, my guesstimate would be heavy on GPU compute power (relative to it's contemporary competitors), and it could also explain Amperes high end dominance.
I don't think the game is bad - Just needs work and optimization. I'm having a good time with friends. Last night I had 80+ kills on a Conquest. Laughing hard the entire match. People that don't have fun in this game, must suck at it.Agree on Portal but the rest of the game is horrendous and there is no free to play Battle Royale which is just insane at this point.
So, like most BF games the engine is at least decently optimized at launch. Frostbite is some impressiv etech.
Sadly being saddled to EA's platform and company policies ruins it for me. I wont be buying it.
Hey, if you like it, good for you. Some people really liked fallout 76 and NMS at launch too. But it is undeniable there are a LOT of missing features for previosu games, which is rather inexcusable for a game from a company as big as EA and one running on an upgraded version of the same game engine.
OH, now it makes sense.
Incorrect, this game is made for you to consoom, preferably with the most expensive edition, which you can then fund further with microtransactions fo a few years until the NEXT battlefield comes out, then you can repeat the cycle.
No multiplayer game without player hosted servers is "made to last". OG battlefield 2? THAT was made to last.
The game is a total train wreck. This list from Reddit shows off all the stuff wrong/left out of the game.
Plus system is clunky dog ****
UI is clunky dog **** wrapped in cat ****. Might be the least intuitive I've ever seen
Lack of game modes
No military ranks associated with numerical ranks
Audio is poorly mixed
The maps, while stunning from both a scale and visuals perspective, lack any real flow for infantry combat.
Non-removable profanity filter
Lack of promised destruction/levelution
Faction locked weapons and gadgets in Portal
No rule editor support for objective based game modes
No server browser outside of Portal
No private/rented servers
Doesn't just roll into the next map after a game in AoW, back to matchmaking peasant
Cannot join friends already in a match (pretty sure I could do this in beta??)
Cutscenes all over the place
Cringe 'look at me' after a match
Cannot customize loadouts before joining a game.
Cannot select loadout or operator before joining a server which, in certain situations, spawn you directly into the game with whatever you had last game. This happens when joining a fresh breakthrough game, mostly.
BFV and Battlefront 2 were gutted to make this **** lol
No mouse and keyboard support for console
Options and description for kill sounds changed from beta. During beta it showed you would be able to choose between BF2042 and BF1 kill sounds. This same option now only lets you choose between BF2042 sounds or no sounds.
No Practice/Test Range
Zoom issues with sniper scopes
No zeroing sniper scopes, starting scope (not sure about the others) has no hash marks on reticle for references
Biggest maps we've ever seen, highest scope magnification is 10x
No holding shift/stick click to steady a sniper shot
22 guns total lol
No ‘All’ chat
Enemies look the same as friendlies
Bullet spread / weapon inaccuracy outside of rock throwing range
Have to opt out of revive every death, no idea who can actually revive me anyway
Have to re-select spawn location every spawn
No resizable minimap
Cannot move while prone and ADS
Damage dealt numbers, e.g. "VEHICLE HIT 28" after hitting a tank with a rocket, have been removed. This applies to both infantry and vehicles.
Weapons can't have different sets of attachments in different loadout presets. Meaning if you want to have a suppressor on the one semi-auto pistol in the game for one preset, you can't have it without a suppressor in your other presets.
No fixed heavy weapons
AA rocket damage appears inconsistent
BF5 movement mechanics removed
Obnoxious voice overs, operators are incredibly vocal, every time you do an action they say a line.
Melee takedown animations have been gutted. All enemies are brought to a standing position before one specific kill is performed.
Cannot dive underwater
UI elements do not have transparency element and distant 2D/3D map markers and UI elements do not fade out by distance and cannot be scaled up or down
Good luck finding your marker on the map
No real scoreboard
No stats page
Cannot join, create, or lock a squad
Cannot switch teams
Repairing vehicles does not give XP
No squad points for issuing orders or following them
No marksman headshot bonus for long range snipes
'Assist Counts as Kill' has been removed
No vehicle kill assists
Spotting system is contextual and misses a lot of the time. For example, if you press Q over an enemy tank it doesn't always spot it, but places a go-to marker on that area.
The team/squad order menu (or whatever it's called) is a pile of garbage. It covers the entire screen, it requires using the mouse to select the options, but not clicking on them for some reason, you have to depress Q. This needs to be redesigned into a friendlier and smaller semi-transparent wheel. Plus, it's not contextual at all and it doesn't seem to have an impact to other players, I requested ammo constantly and nobody even saw my request.
No separate Heli & Jet controls.
Horizontal pitch (or yaw) when set to mouse movement is inverted by design and cannot be inverted again like vertical pitch can. So your aircraft goes the other way than your mouse does.
No HOTAS support
Vehicle crosshairs are pixelated as ****
Vehicle entry and exit animations have been removed
Option for 'Vehicle Aim Relative Control' missing
Unnecessary changes to the aircraft flight characteristics from BF4 models
No maps with water and thusly no boats.. despite there being a big *** boat on the loading screen.
Cannot tell if there is room to enter a friendly vehicle without trying to get in it. To elaborate, you used to be able to see (from both a reasonable distance and, if memory serves, from the spawn in screen) that 'That APC over there' had [2/4] under the driver's name... so you instantly knew that the main gunner seat was most likely occupied and there was no reason to get in unless you wanted to hitch a ride.
When in tank, you don't have the little tank outline which tells you where the driver and gunner are looking at.
On the spawn screen tanks/helis use the same icon, you simply cannot tell if that's a transport or attack heli that you are spawning into.
Unable to load persistent data
Grappling Hook is afraid of smoke
Bullets are afraid of power lines and tree leaves
Planes are afraid of landing lights on takeoff
No enemy footsteps / footsteps can be heard across the map
Revive is glitched when downed teammate's head is too close to something.
From what I can see, DLSS is not working properly or not making any difference
Crossplay issues on Xbox. Crossplay toggle is greyed out (defaulted to 'On') in game menu, but can still be toggled off in console settings (DICE has told Xbox players they need to do it this way, but that only helps the people that look into it.). People that have turned it off cannot find a match because no one else knows it is possible.
Last gen console performance is worse than beta
Poor hardware optimization on PC (my FPS is trash with a 5900X and 3080), crashing and overheating on console reported in multiple comments below.
Several people have mentioned being unable to rebind certain keys, or to have remapped them in the options menu and not actually have them move.
Several reports of changing crosshair and hit marker colors have all defaulted to black and will not stay the colors picked.
If you play with inverted controls and get into someone else's vehicle(friend, copilot or foe) you adopt their preference for inverted controls or not.
BFV's respawn bug
Whats amazing to me is even at 2021 my 8gb rx 570 I got for like 120 bucks a long time ago still holds up fine in both this and FH5, given the caveat 30 FPS is fine for me (yes, you read that right) and I use a 1440P monitor.
Both are getting over 30 FPS on highest settings at 1440P according to benchmarks I've read. Well in this case the 580 is a proxy, as the 570 is only a little slower. Maybe I'd have to turn down a setting or two.
All hypothetical because PC gaming really sucks and I may never do it again.
Also, yet another title to add to the 5 million pile that RT is a Nvidia gimmick. Literally almost not a single game uses RT to good effect after all this time. well they say Metro Exodus, but that game is boring as crap anyway. Thats ONE crappy game out of 5,000. And I played it with RT on Series X. It looks nice I GUESS, but I couldn't really tell you that lighting couldn't be done without RT.
3060 withouth dlss was cpu limited in 4k with my 3600 +16gb 3200cl16 ram so I fear a lot of this is meaningless. My gpu sits around 60-75% in he whole match and it stutters like crazy
this was from gameplay found this week, after the early release on the 12th...I have also been playing, as an EA Pro member. Look on the Reddit BF 2042, and you will see post after post echoing the issues raised in my list.From this copy/paste I can clearly see you have not played the game outside of beta. Stop spreading misinformation.
No it's not, several of those things are already fixed. They never were included in the version that launched Nov 12.this was from gameplay found this week, after the early release on the 12th...I have also been playing, as an EA Pro member.

The beta last month, which was a several month old build, was better than the crap they dished out on the 12th. Looking forward to no gun plus, no specialists, a scoreboard, no gun bloom, and real maps with proper infantry flow after the "huge" 10gb patch.No it's not, several of those things are already fixed. They never were included in the version that launched Nov 12.
Also, alot of stuff on that list is subjective.
Anyway there's a huge 10GB patch coming. Day one patch. The game has NOT officially launched yet. It's early access. I will judge the game AFTER this patch is out.
And retesting should be done too - CPU tests included.
Most of the rant on reddit comes from playing who played the beta and still talks ****. Keeps repeating bugs that are already fixed. Pointless to even mention reddit in this regard. This is always the case.
I played pretty much every BF in the series and there is always tons of bugs on release. Still fun.
No it was not you troll Sigh.The beta last month, which was a several month old build, was better than the crap they dished out on the 12th. Looking forward to no gun plus, no specialists, a scoreboard, no gun bloom, and real maps with proper infantry flow after the "huge" 10gb patch.
Lol, these guys are almost rivalling Cyberpunk with their incompetency.
Better to wait for a game from the real Battlefield devs, not this fake trash.
Do you think I want to use 20 mins of writing which issues YOU WROTE that are not preset haha.nope, this was all discussed in a post after the launch on the 12th...which bugs are not currently present?
if you can't refute them, no problem. Looks like we have another EA shill. Looking forward to the game made by real BF devs, not these lame ones that can't even let people know the in-game scoreboard, or post a simple comment in global chat.Do you think I want to use 20 mins of writing which issues YOU WROTE that are not preset haha.
Sniper scope can easily be steadied for one. Shift... Which blind dog reported this? Even worked in the beta.
Just did with scope steadying, works just fineif you can't refute them, no problem. Looks like we have another EA shill. Looking forward to the game made by real BF devs, not these lame ones that can't even let people know the in-game scoreboard, or post a simple comment in global chat.
Why remove it. Why remove the scoreboard.? Why have a "look at me" lame Apex style jerk off at the end of every round? The whole game is literally the antithesis of what a Battlefield game should be, and it the result of literally no devs being left over from the BF2,3,4 days. Now, it's a bunch of punks who wanna transform it into some apex style hero shooter where people fly all the way across the map on a wing suit and hover crafts run up the side of walls.Just did with scope steadying, works just fine
Why the **** do you need an ALL chat, so you can troll in games too? Sigh.
I bet you have not played the game at all outside of beta like most reddit plebs. And this is why I know most of the "bugs" on that list is from the beta.

And yet they have cocky expat soldiers who say **** like that after every round anyways. Indeed, I gave it a go on 12-14th...then decided to wait until 19th to see if my feeling has changed. I hopped back onto BF4 after 2042, and it just felt instantly better....I really hope 2042 can be steered in the same direction as that.Because the "all" chat is only used for toxicity and crap like "ez" anyway, who the f cares. Scoreboard sucks in its current form, yes. However I am mostly in 1st squad
Still want the old back, as I said I will judge the game properly in a few weeks, starting from Nov 19. If they don't make the game work it was my last EA game anyway, they have nothing on Origin I want to play outside of this, untill Dragon Age 4 comes out, in a few years...
I've actually played it quite a bit. Portal is excellent, I love the old maps and I applaud Dice for it but the most important part of the game for me is Hazard Zone and it's absolutely awful. The bots must be removed and it needs to be free to play. Conquest bores me to tears just like every other mp shooter. I can't fathom why they didn't make a F2P BR to accompany the base game. COD has proven you can sell millions of copies of a terrible multi-player shooter (vanguard and Cold war) just so people can level up their guns for warzone.I don't think the game is bad - Just needs work and optimization. I'm having a good time with friends. Last night I had 80+ kills on a Conquest. Laughing hard the entire match. People that don't have fun in this game, must suck at it.
No F2P = Way less cheating. Warzone suffers from massive cheating because it is F2P and people just make a new account and spoof their IP and HW IDs and continue to use aimbot and wallhack without even hiding the fact they cheat bigtime. Aimbotters driving around on top of cars and do headshots across the entire map... Haha yeah, F2P is great if you want to attract cheaters.
Once again, most people WHINING and CRYING about BF 2042 have not even played the full game or more than a few hours. They played the BETA or bought EA PLAY to get 10 hours of gametime and now they spend their time writing shiit about it because they cant play it anyway Besides, there has been serverissues, meaning some matchen run like crap while others run okay and some even great.
The game releases in 2 days. Day one patch is coming and you have seen very little of things to come; Battle/Season pass, more game modes, more maps, more specialists. Portal gets more and more content all the time too, even day to day. This game is made to AGE WELL, obviously, and this is nothing new if you actually read stuff about the game and whats to come.
HZ needs serious work, I only tried it about 3 times. Top kills 19 and did not escape in any of the matches because my team were 100% clueless and 2/3 console users; Did not hit anything and did not even supply team with health or ammo.I've actually played it quite a bit.

Just coming here from watching AngryJoe's rant, I don't know whether to laugh at the sheer ineptitude and incompetence of Dice or to be sad that a formerly great developer that made gems like BF1942 and BF2 has sunk so low.The game is a total train wreck. This list from Reddit shows off all the stuff wrong/left out of the game.
- No single-player story
- No standard server browser
- Fewer standardized game modes (Can't even play TDM or smaller scale modes without relying on community servers. Really?)
- Fewer base game maps than any other title (even including portal the map count is only 13)

- No rolling after falling from heights
- No ammo or health pickup off teammates

- Less vehicle driver/pilot customization options
- No tank zoom customization options

- No player damage points
- No vehicle damage points
- No vehicle kill assist points
- No headshot bonus
- No long-range kill bonus
- No assist counts as kill bonus

- Oversimplified teamplay scoring (I.e. healing a teammate always gives you +5xp rather than the amount of health you give)
UI and Quality of Life
- No commander
- No special squad call-in abilities
- No squad field upgrades
