Electronic Arts has unveiled Battlefield 2042 update 7.0.1 in response to players’ feedback and issues encountered following the release of update 7.0.0. This minor Battlefield 2042 update is scheduled to deploy on April 2, without any associated downtime.

Battlefield 2042: 16 Best Weapons

When heading out into all-out war, players will need the right tools. Here are the best weapons in Battlefield 2042.

Battlefield 2042 update 7.0.1 brings several key fixes and improvements. EA has released this small hotfix following the launch of Battlefield 2042 Season 7. It addresses issues that caused misaligned aim-down-sight states for weapons like the Avancys and AK-24 when using multiple weapon cosmetics with iron sights. Furthermore, the patch resolves issues related to the Laser Sight Underbarrel Attachment icon and incorrect unlock criteria display for certain weapons. It also adjusts crosshair sizing for resolutions larger than 1080p, ensuring appropriate scaling for higher resolutions.

Moreover, spawning issues that caused players to deploy into objects or geometry on Rush, Conquest, and Breakthrough have been fixed. The presence of vehicles like the MV-38 Condor and Mi-240 Super Hind within Breakthrough mode has been restored as intended. The update also addresses visual indicators, ensuring the correct display of elements like the dotted line indicator when aiming down sights with the Predator SRAW.

However, the patch notes do not mention any fixes for the Battlefield 2042 glitch that makes weapons spin around when fired. The developers expressed appreciation for the community’s patience and feedback, particularly regarding recent Weapon Recoil adjustments. While further balancing improvements are underway, most of these changes are expected to arrive in update 7.1.0, slated for release on April 2. According to EA, there will be no downtime with this update; however, players may need to restart the game in order to benefit from these changes.

While recent seasons have successfully introduced new maps to address the game’s perceived lack of content, Season 7’s announcement of two maps sparked excitement, only to disappoint some fans when it was revealed that Stadium, one of the new maps, is essentially a smaller section of a previously existing map, Hourglass. This has sparked some controversy among Battlefield 2042 players, emphasizing ongoing discussions about the game’s map variety and post-launch content approach.
