Battlefield 2042 updates will reduce bullet spread, nerf vehicles, and fix bugs before the end of 2021, says DICE

One of the chief complaints about Battlefield 2042 so far has been the bullet spread of assault rifles, which kind of suck at range due to their erratic firing. I liked that assault rifles weren’t the dominant gun type in BF2042, but I knew this day would come: In Battlefield 2042’s second patch, releasing this Thursday, assault rifles and other guns will be made more accurate, and a bigger patch in December will make even more gun balance tweaks. 

DICE is also considering player complaints about the redesigned scoreboard, although it’s holding off on announcing specifics about its plan for “legacy features.”
