Battlefield 2042

It's bad, really bad. In fact it's almost comical.

The sound is atrocious. In 5 with a decent headset you could pinpoint footsteps with pin point accuracy. In this it sounds like you're up underwater ffs.

Don't know about PC but on Series X the graphics look worse than 5 does. Next gen my ass.

Why isn't there a proper scoreboard? Who decided it would be a good idea to make it impossible to see how many times you've been killed? I can only assume it's to stop the snowflakes feeling suicidal if they get a negative KDR.

Why does the movement feel so light? It feels like you're floating the whole time!

I could go on and on. I've played every battlefield since the start and this is the biggest let down in the entire franchise.

It is quite underwhelming tbh.

Graphics wise, they aren’t great. For some reason when you see people running in the distance they look ridiculous. Their legs are “stuck” in one motion so they look like they are floating along at great speed.

Lack of scoreboard is a complete whopper move and ba

Those robot dogs are annoying.

And yes, the sound is atrocious.

And I am still upset about a lack of campaign which used to be a BF staple.

This was the main reason I fucked off my pre order. The Beta wasn't great but I thought they could solve the issues. It appears that that haven't.

On the other hand, Vanguard's campaign is pretty good.

Decided to have a go on Hazard Zone, first game i went on i died straightaway thinking i could respawn and the whole team died within a minute or two satart of the game. And went and had another go straight after and this is the game i had.

I'm looking on Sony's website about see if i can get a refund, it was a digital version of their store. I'm not hopeful but i've never done it before. I purchased it months and months ago

I think it's only something like 2 hours of play time if you want a refund.
I cancelled mine before the amended launch date.

Gotta remember every battlefield has been bugged to f**k upon release. Hopefully within a patch or 2 the game will be good. I was optimistic with the beta so I’m sure once the niggles have been ironed out it’ll be very good.

There is also the benefit that so far, I haven’t seen any hackers 😂

Fr33thy optimisation vid is up, reckons he's found Pro-G 50mm set to Stereo sound as the best for the Audio. He's not too impressed with the engine/CPU/GPU utilisation.


I did a few more games midday yesterday and had a bit of a better experience on Breakthrough. Much better than when me and @Cub. did the Korean city map.

Unlocked an 8x on the sniper which has a few more range finding dots for working out range on the reticle, apparently it's ADS is the fastest at the moment too.

It does look like the 2042 weapons do level up in Portal. The xp farm games have been nerfed though I think as people were just jumping in, one shotting hundreds of bots and getting like 9 levels on the gun. Who'd have thought people would instantly cheese it on release and stuff wouldn't need to be in place to counter it...

What a s**t show, worse in every way than BF5 imo, got a refund and will hope they sort it out as I’m a long term BF fan but this version so far is a total joke, for me it felt and looked worse than beta, terrible.

Oh dear oh dear. This doesn’t make for good reading 🤣 I’ve still not fired it up yet.

Try not to let us taint your opinion. 😜

I'm looking keen on trying it fully squadded. Unless everyone gets a refund.

I won’t get a refund as I didn’t buy it in the first place 😂 Free copy FTW.

I’m keen to try with a full squad. One of the best things on WZ is the team work, and I’m keen to see how BF works in a squad with good comms.

How do things like this go unnoticed though? It’s pathetic lol

Just went into a Portal TDM and used the SMG which I haven't tried in all out warfare yet and it didn't clock up any kills for the attachment unlocks. 😣

Why they've locked loads of other modes into Portal that you can't really gain anything from is beyond me. There should just be a "standard 2042" option you check and it treats the Custom games like they're part of All out War.

Had fun with @N0ddie and his mate before though!

Get fuuuuucked :D.

I'm enjoying it so far.

Nice! Could use you in the squad when choppers are about. 😅

Sooooo is it good

It'll be fine once we get over the multiple annoyances. Probably...!

Liking how at 31 seconds I dodge fire from a chopper, narrowly miss being hit by a car and then a plane carcass flies over my head. 🤣

I like it. No attachments for guns initially is tough. I need an grip on my AR as the recoil is pretty strong.

Also, not being able to tell if its baddies around you when you are "downed" is a pain. As is the revive function just plain not working sometimes. Think we played for a couple of hours this afternoon but only managed to play the same 2 maps over and over.

Also. Default settings had my 3090 giving me 82FPS :ROFLMAO:

Some optimisations required me thinks.

Getting around 100fps on mine @ 3440x1440, no ray tracing enabled though, everything else on full, +10fps with DLSS (Quality) which just gives me fuzzy images.

money not well spent there with the CPU bottleneck lol, I see 70-80% GPU constantly

Im over 90% constantly on GPU and havent seen my CPU causing any stutters or overly high usage and thats with a fairly old i9-9900k @ 5.0Ghz all cores.

Heard that DLSS doesn't work properly yet but will on Friday. I've turned it off for now as the trees were a bit too fuzzy as you say @Greeny. Looked ok on the barer maps.

No idea what FPS I'm getting. Riva tuner screwed up OBS for me last time. Does anyone know how to decipher the console FPS counter where it shows CPU and GPU FPS separately? 🤔

CPU optimisation means users are seeing low utilisation on some systems

Should be pegged at 100% (GPU), really if you're only at 100 frames. I'm using DLSS for now to peg the frames up, but yeah it looks jank. So does TXAA on high

Think the pre download was 50 odd then it did another 20 on the day.

Played some more last night. ARs seem to be kinda useless at the mo. SMGs are better for close to medium range and snipers/DMRs for longer shots. At no point is an AR better.

Hit reg seemed to be pretty awful last night also. Would literally spray a clip into someone and get no hit markers.
