While Battlefield 2042 returns the franchise to its Battlefield 3 heyday with a modern setting and modern weapons, the game has also fallen victim to a number of bugs and technical issues. Thankfully, players won't have to deal with at least a few of those problems for much longer, as DICE is reportedly looking into them.

A post from the fan-run Twitter account Battlefield Bulletin claims that DICE is currently tackling four issues that Battlefield 2042 players have reported. Those issues range from players rubber banding when they get hit by rockets from a jet or helicopter and missile relock not working to options for changing the transparency and size of various icons.

However, the post doesn't detail when players can expect these issues to be fixed. Similarly, the Battlefield Direct Communication account, which is run by Battlefield developers and regularly posts when updates are coming out and what their contents will be, hasn't mentioned any of these issues yet.

While Battlefield 2042 has had a rough launch, the game is slowly being fixed by developers DICE and Ripple Effect. One upcoming patch for the game will address issues with players failing to be revived and balancing problems with two of the game's vehicles as well as the UAV-1.

For players, fixes for Battlefield 2042 are arriving far too late. The game has been panned on Steam, where it has a "mostly negative" aggregate score. At the moment, 33,000 of the game's 44,000 reviews are negative, with players citing bugs and a lack of features compared to past titles.
