Changelog

Arkangel Directive

Arkangel Directive is now underway. Utilise the Ascension satellite network, and experience the mode Control. Take and hold rotating objectives to upload tactical telemetry, collect the most telemetry to command the region, and earn Ascension Points to purchase vehicles.

Execute the Directive. Take Control.

Control is played as 24v24 across Reclaimed, Orbital, Valparaiso and Arica Harbor, with your goal being to collect telemetry data to upload to the Arkangel Satellite. Update 6.4 will include support for two additional maps in Breakaway and Discarded.

Persistent Servers Update

Season 6 has now come to a close and we are on our way towards Season 7. As we make our way to the new Season, we’re improving how Persistent Servers function for Battlefield Portal.

Going forward, if Battlefield 2042 does not have an active Season, all Custom Experiences created within Battlefield Portal will now benefit from server persistence for two days, whereas previously this wasn’t available.

During an active Season, if you are a Battle Pass owner you will still benefit from 7 days of Server Persistence. Allowing your server to remain active for a longer duration of time.

 

Improved Aircraft Gunner Directional HUD

With Update 6.4, we continue to expand upon the directional HUD features that were included in a previous Game Update. Taking onboard Player Feedback, you will now be able to see the direction of your Gunner with more clarity.

We have also included the ability to select between Default, Legacy, Both or Disable this HUD feature within the Options screen. This functionality is titled as ‘Helicopter Gunner View’.

Default: Battlefield 2042 's standard HUD with the weapon barrel showing the gunners direction.

Legacy: Inspired by previous titles. This shows the gunner's pitch and yaw, while using an animated triangle inside a larger rectangular box.

Both: Both of these elements will be visible at the same time, with one being placed above the other.

 

Helicopter Impact Point UI HUD

Similar to the improved options for the Gunner Directional HUD above, players will now be able to select between different Crosshair Indicators for their Impact Point Crosshair. You can now choose between a Cross, Plus, Circle or disable the crosshair within the Crosshair Options screen.
