For some Battlefield fans, the Battlefield 2042 public beta last weekend only lowered their expectations for the complete game, which will be released in November this year after a one-month delay.
Reddit user wrote: “I have let “Battlefield” let me down before, but this is the first time I really think the inherent core game is bad.” Terrorist IRL, They said they cancelled their Battlefield 2042 pre-order after experiencing the beta version.
Former battlefield e-sports player factor, WHO Current stream Apex Legends and other games have similar feelings. He told PC Gamer this week that “Battlefield 2042” “has flaws from a basic battlefield shooter perspective.” For him, the beta is not only an unacceptable error — it’s a flashback to the Battlefield 5 release — it’s characterized by “stupid” guns and other identity errors.
My experience in the beta version is often frustrating, but when I team up with some friends — we can only let the three of us play together, which is annoying — I have a lot of fun, playing Tank Commander, in Rocket Running around at the foot of the boat. I also like to use flying drones to disturb snipers, as shown in the gif below; obviously, I am not a good player like Xfactor.
Morgan also likes this beta version. Although the beta version has obvious flaws, we are not the only ones having fun. “I know that most people at IRL like this game very much,” wrote Titanium alloy On the Battlefield subreddit, “So I guess a small group of haters come to express themselves on social media.”
No matter where players play the Battlefield 2042 beta, no one denies that it is a hellish off-road vehicle. He said that one of the errors highlighted by Xfactor is the return error of Battlefield 5. A video he posted on Twitter showed that a player appeared to appear behind him after several silent gunshots.
When you quickly turn the field of view, Battlefield 2042 will have player position issues. Normally, when you perform this operation quickly, the player can move 2-20 feet within a frame, while the vehicle can move a few hundred feet? Why did the invisible player come back?

DICE said that some of the problems in the beta version have been resolved in the Battlefield 2042 version prepared in November. The beta version is also very limited: a map and mode can be accessed through a streamlined UI. However, not everyone believes that the space-time anomalies they encountered in the beta will be resolved by launch.
Even if the release is completely error-free (unlikely), a large number of design complaints still exist. Another major target of criticism was the new experts in Battlefield 2042, who replaced the usual courses. Like the operator of Rainbow Six Siege, the expert is a character who carries unique gadgets, such as healing pistols and grappling hooks. Unlike siege operators, they can be equipped with any gun and equipment load. Snipers can have anti-tank rockets, and LMG users can have anti-aircraft missiles. There are ammunition boxes, but besides explosives, who wants anything else?
Xfactor said: “You can’t tell who is next to you and who you are shooting.” “How do you prepare or fight back?”
The release version of Battlefield 2042 will have more experts, so you may not see so many duplicates, although this may not necessarily help identify loading. Fans who are fundamentally opposed to this change have already begun to look forward to other 2042 products, the battlefield portal.
Portal will allow players to design and play custom game modes, extract weapons, vehicles and maps from “Battlefield 1942”, “Battlefield Bad Company 2,” “Battlefield 3” and “Battlefield 2042”. Don’t like the new style of conquest mode: Go to the portal and find a group of players who are using the Battlefield 3 profession.
The third Battlefield 2042 mode was announced this week, called the Danger Zone, and its escape from Tarkov style design may also appeal to those who have been shut down by the beta standard “Total War” playlist. A common theme in the response is that experts are more meaningful in the danger zone (and should be isolated from it).
What makes any attempt to use the Battlefield 2042 beta reaction to predict how the full game will be received next month is complicated by the fact that opinions about which Battlefield games are good and which are part of Satan’s plan are constantly changing. Today, Battlefield 1 is widely regarded as a shining star in the series, but some comments on its beta version are as harsh as today’s comments on the Battlefield 2042 beta.
“I think [Battlefield 1] It’s ridiculous, I won’t buy it, even if I’m a fan of BF4,” said one Comment by In 2016. Other players complained that Battlefield 1 is too similar to Call of Duty and no one brought them back to life. These complaints are fully reflected in some criticisms of the Battlefield 2042 beta version today.
The most surprising thing is that, in the eyes of many seemingly players, the once criticized “Battlefield 5” is now pretty good. For example, in a popular Reddit review this week, a fan lamented that Battlefield 2042 lacked features that existed in previous Battlefields, including the construction of sandbag walls in Battlefield 5 — I don’t remember anyone seriously caring about this feature after the release of BF5.
This seemingly common change partly comes from all the improvements DICE has made to Battlefield 5, but it may also be related to audience loss. The harshest critics of BF5 in 2018 are not necessarily the ones who play and talk about it today. (I often have to remind myself that when people talk about preferring the “old” Battlefield, they usually refer to Battlefield 3 or Battlefield 4, not Battlefield 1942.)
Fans in the battlefield subreddit are joking about the predictable cycle of praise and criticism in the battlefield.
“This is the law. Unless the successor has a wrong beta version, no battlefield game will really be loved,” Write user Apokolypze Respond to the post celebrating Battlefield 5.
If the Battlefield beta reaction seems especially This time it was very demanding, probably because EA and DICE did a good job of presenting it as a game made for long-term fans. The Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer made many people excited about the multiplayer-only Battlefield game, which “got” their love for the series, and EA called it “the grand return of total war.” At the same time, “Battlefield Portal” is described as a “love letter” to fans of the series, and DICE’s attempt at the more modern mode Hazard Zone has not been squeezed in like BF5’s Firestorm battle royale mode. The message I got from all of this is: “We have learned our lessons from Battlefield 5.” This may help explain why the reappearance of the old Battlefield 5 bugs in the public beta can cause some unusually strong disappointments. . (but not That Abnormally elevated. )
As a fairly laid-back Battlefield game enthusiast—in other words, I would rather not publish my K/D ratio—I don’t hate the Battlefield 2042 beta. Nevertheless, I still hope that the battlefield portal is not just a novelty. This is when I am most looking forward to the release of Battlefield 2042 on November 19th.
