EA DICE promised to announce a day one patch for the game after the release, which would fix some lingering issues in the game. The rubber-banding issue, which was ruining the All-Out-Warfare mode, has also been fixed in this update 0.2.1. And some players think that BF2042 will offer a more stable experience in its full launch.

A lot of this criticism can be owed to the massive amount of features that were essential to all the games in the Battlefield franchise being taken out of Battlefield 2042. Players have been quite angry with the missing features.

Hopefully, as time goes on, things will get better, and the game will finally be all that it was hyped up to be.
