Over the coming days, we'll be showcasing several Quality of Life Improvements taking place on Battlefield 2042 ahead of the full Update Notes for 6.2.

Stay tuned for further update threads, and keep it dialled in via BattlefieldCommInsideBattlefield, and Battlefield on X.


VHX-D3

While this weapon has received mixed feedback regarding its damage output.

Update 6.2 will have this weapon's starting accuracy decreased, and will also have an increase to its dispersion build-up in response to players feeling it is packing too much of a punch.

G428

The G428's role is to be a close-range DMR, as such we are reducing the Standard Issue Ammo 2-hit kill range from 40 meters to 20 meters.

We’re also including a new 4-hit kill range over 125 meters. These changes will readjust this weapon into its close range, as intended.

You will also see further changes such as High Power ammo remaining viable at longer ranges, and more broader changes to recoil, accuracy, and more to bring this weapon in line with other DMRs.


As always, the team will continue to review player feedback and stats once this update goes live.
Keep sharing your voice, and we'll see you on the Battlefield!

Think of it from a different angle.

Weapons are often introduced with a slight over-tune because this is a far better scenario from a balancing perspective than it is for something that is under-tuned.

It is not fair to play through progression tracks to then receive a weapon you're excited about and it's... ok. Weak, even. By that point, you will then have a far more distasteful opinion towards that weapon and you wouldn't be using it, right?

So, if you look at it from this angle. Weapons are often between 'Great!' and 'Overtuned/OP!' because not only will you have a better experience with it, it is far easier to bring something down from being too powerful than it is to bring something up when the opinion of a weapon can rarely change from 'it's... ok. Weak, even.'

Hope this might open the perspective a little :)
