DICE just detailed the upcoming changes for Update 3.2 that is set to arrive for Battlefield 2042 tomorrow or Thursday, January 20, 2022 depending on when you read this.

Once again, this update seems to be focused on addressing bugs and stability issues that the game has in spades. There are also some fixes for hit registration issues related to Sundance and vehicle passenger weapons. The full list of changes can be found below.

  • Fixed an issue where passenger weapons would no longer be in sync whenever the driver’s turret would rotate, causing bullets to not register when firing at enemies
  • M1A5, T28 - improved the effective range and reduced spread on Canister Weapon Pod
    • Reduced Bullet Spread from 1.6 -> 1.1
    • Increased Damage Fall Off Distance from 35 -> 40

Battlefield Hazard Zone
  • Fixed a black rectangle being present on screen during Hazard Zone end of round when hitting quit at the level progress screen

Battlefield Portal
  • The Server Info tab now persists after hitting Refresh in the Portal Server Browser
  • Fixed an issue where text would overlap when joining a Team Deathmatch game during the end of round sequence
  • Rules Editor - the “IsInventorySlotActive” value now correctly handles melee weapons
  • Certain admin commands can no longer be spammed
DICE also detailed some of the changes they are making to how players earn XP when playing Battlefield Portal. Starting with Update 3.2, players will get an increase of per minute XP cap in all Portal modes to 300.

DICE is also changing how you will progress Mastery and Weekly Missions between created experiences. What you are able to earn in each experience "will now be determined by which modifiers you use, and whether the Rules Editor, Damage/Health modifiers, or AI are enabled."

Other improvements are planned for Portal for later updates. These include a UI indicator showing if a created mode will have any Progression restrictions.

In case you missed it, DICE is also working on implementing a scoreboard with the future Update 3.3 set to arrive by late February. However, features like VOIP, while still "on the radar" won't be implemented just yet.
