Last October, Star Wars: Battlefront II’s fantasy of blasting and lightsaber power began to degenerate into a nightmare. All players in a match sometimes find themselves unable to die.Dealing damage will make them stay at 1hp indefinitely, as if they had Buddha Mode enabled, and even the game’s out-of-bounds trigger can’t kill the player, causing Immortal lightsaber ball under world geometry.
According to reports from IGN, This problem is unique to PC and may occur more frequently over time. Thankfully, DICE is aware of the problem and appears to be taking steps to address it. Community Manager Kevin Johnson, reply to a thread On the subreddit for Battlefield 2042 (another DICE title), it claims “progress in solving the problem”. However, we still have no word on when this fix will be fixed.
It’s not clear if this is just a bug, or, This Reddit thread claims, user-made exploits. A post on a hacking forum referenced by this Reddit thread claims that activating an exploit in one lobby activates it in every other lobby on the same server, which may explain the prevalence of the phenomenon. We can’t tell which one it is, but Johnson said DICE will share updates on the status of the fix when possible.
