Battlefield2042 has three main modes: All-Out Warfare, Portal, and HazardZone. HazardZone is an extraction mode that draws influence from hero shooters, popular battle royale titles, and games like Hunt: Showdown and Escape from Tarkov. In the 12-hour review event, we spent around four hours with the mode and learned a lot. Here’s what you should know.
In this video, we’re giving you 18 things we wish we knew before playing. These tips will help you earn more Dark Market credits, help you develop tactics, cover what kind of guns to purchase at the start of each round, help you survive the extraction process, and more. We’ll also cover how mechanics like the Call-In tablet, plus system, and some specialist abilities work in slightly different ways in this mode, as well as some tactical dos and don’ts.
Battlefield2042 is out now in early access with a general release on November 19. The game has cross-progression, cross-play, and cross-buy on PC, PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. It's worth noting, though, that matches sport aa lower player count on last-gen consoles.
