- Though it has come a long way, Battlefield 2042 continues to struggle with glitches and technical issues, affecting features like aerial mechanics.
- A recent glitch shared online shows a jet landing on its tip instead of exploding, allowing an enemy player to run over the player and take off again.
- Despite a rocky launch, DICE has been actively working on improving the game and releasing patches, though this funny fail indicates there is still room for improvement.
A gamer online has shared a hilarious fail from Battlefield 2042, which implies that the jets in the game might not be working exactly as developer DICE intends. Despite countless patches since its release, Battlefield 2042 still suffers from its share of glitches.
When Battlefield 2042 was first released back in 2021, the game faced heavy scrutiny from the community. It suffered from a lack of features that had become standard for the series at that point, straying from what players had come to expect from a Battlefield game. On top of this, it was littered with technical issues and bugs which severely damaged the launch. One Battlefield 2042 glitch even allowed players to go invisible and cause mayhem for others. The game’s aerial mechanics were no different, suffering from its own slate of glitches. As this clip shows, there’s at least one bug that hasn’t been ironed out yet.
The Case For The Next Battlefield to Skip a Seasonal Approach
Rather than following the standard seasonal approach, the next Battlefield should look to the series’ past when it comes to adding new content.
The Most Frustrating Way to Die in Battlefield 2042
The glitch was posted to Reddit by Bird_Boy100, kicking off with a jet immediately charging into the ground. Instead of exploding instantly as expected, it lands on its tip. The player garners the attention of the enemy, who is able to actually run the player over and take off into the air once again. It’s a hilarious watch, but would understandably be a frustrating way to die in the moment. With Battlefield 2042 Season 7 set to kick off in March, it’s clear that there are still a few kinks to iron out in the game.
Ever since the earliest days of online gaming videos, there has always been something about Battlefield aerial combat clips that is particularly awesome. While glitches are frustrating when they happen, more often than not, Battlefield aerial combat clips get to highlight incredible feats that seem impossible. One Battlefield 2042 player even pulled off an incredible jet stunt kill – it’s just an essential part of the experience that every player needs to try to make happen at least once.
Despite the poor launch of Battlefield 2042, DICE has done a solid job at ensuring the game has steadily improved over time to reach the standards of the series. Just yesterday, Battlefield 2042 revealed its 6.3.0 patch notes, reaffirming that the game is still being worked on in a big way. A tough launch can be a killer for many live-service games, so the fact the game is still active two years after its launch is impressive. Considering the series’ previous release cycle, a new Battlefield title is almost overdue, and hopefully, the next attempt will get it right from the very start.
Battlefield 2042 is the latest installment in the long-running Battlefield franchise. Featuring similar game modes and structures to titles of the past, the DICE-developed title features next-gen graphics and the same iconic large-scale battles that players have become accustomed to.
