If you have played Battlefield 2042 Since its release last November, you’ll no doubt be well aware that one of the game’s problems is inconsistent weapon attachment behavior, which is a major factor in the level of reception poor of gun games.
Some of these problems are manifested in misleading attachment description, where they will do the opposite of what is stated. Other cases show that some attachments are not efficient in performing the function they are supposed to.
DICE eventually fixed some of those bugs in subsequent patches, but it looks like the problem isn’t fully fixed yet. As picked by Reddit user Zodhr, weapon recoil in Battlefield 2042 seems to be affected by the choice of sight and range.
As you can see in their video below; using the AK24 assault rifle, switching sights from Fusion Holo to XDR Holo reduces vertical recoil by about 25%. This obviously shouldn’t be the case, as none of the scopes in Battlefield 2042 – in theory – have any recoil-affecting properties.
It’s worth noting that in both cases the Zodhr has an Arcom Tactical Muzzle Brake attached to the barrel – designed to reduce recoil. It’s possible that Menu Plus was faulty and didn’t initially apply the muzzle brake until after the vision change.
The same problem could potentially cause the same problem with weapon hilts. As seen in the video below from iFlyAircraft, the M5A3 assault rifle has different vertical recoil values when switching between the Cobra Grip and the LWG Grip – both will have the same effect, as described in the game.
Indeed, the video shows a compensator attached, so it’s possible that it will only take effect after changing the handle. Regardless of what is causing it, this is clearly a problem that needs to be addressed.
When the DICE developers return from the holiday season, we hope to hear something about the studio’s plans for the game in 2022. For now, we’re getting it. more Battlefield 2042 lore.
