As predicted yesterday (November 24), the corrections include a reduction in arms growth, ie. the amount of bullet scatter that is for most weapons, except for shotguns. This means that accuracy is improved for players who want to aim a little more carefully than before.

Beyond that, the LCAA Hovercraft has been adjusted with its equipped armor type that is no longer quite as invincible. It is now more vulnerable to different types of weapons. This means that it is not quite as overpowered as it once was, giving players a greater chance against it.

Earlier, EA Dice explained that it had noticed that Hovercraft “became a fan favorite because of its high durability and efficiency in combat”. However, the team had “designed this vehicle to behave as an alternative to the LATV4, but not as an upgrade,” and therefore adjusted its power.

Other vehicles have also been fine-tuned with the AH-64GX Apache Warchief and KA-520 Super Hokum as their 30mm cannon radius is reduced. Total damage to the Minigun for all land vehicles has also been reduced.

Additional fixes include one that helps players who were unable to be resuscitated or resuscitated.

Full patch notes are available on the official Battlefield 2042 website.
