Various balance changes have also been made to the RAH-68 Huron, YG-99 Hannibal 30mm Cannon and the BSV-M's Full Auto and High Power Rounds.

battlefield 2042 – update 1.2 out today; reworks kaleidoscope map, adds style and tone change for specialists

DICE’s Battlefield 2042 is halfway through Season 1: Zero Hour, which added a new map in Exposure and Ewelina Lis, a new Specialist. Update 1.2 is out later today and will be the last update before Season 2 drops. Along with bug fixes, it includes a rework of Kaleidoscope, providing new cover assets, elevations to terrain, visual updates, and more. This is the first of many planned reworks to existing maps.

Specialist models have been updated along with the first Style and Tone changes being introduced. Player Profile and Statistics can now be viewed in-game while controller aim assist should feel smoother when dealing with moving enemies. Balance changes include the RAH-68 Huron and YG-99 Hannibal 30mm Cannon overheating faster.

The BSV-M in Full Auto mode has also received a penalty to accuracy while High Power Rounds deal less damage at a quicker rate over long distances. Check out some of the patch notes below and the full notes here.

Battlefield 2042 is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC. It had a less than stellar launch and apparently has a skeleton crew working on it, according to rumors. Time will ultimately tell though, so stay tuned for more updates.
