Reddit users want to see community servers in Battlefield 2042

It seems like the community also made its felt with a recent subreddit thread. Reddit user, u/OkVillage2 shared an interesting post demanding EA to add the options of community servers. This unique option enables the community to come up with its own unique servers with customized rules. It drastically changes the game, as players can ban the use of specific weapon classes and even vehicles.

This allows the players to come up with more innovative strategies to accomplish the objective. It promotes extremely fun gameplay while adding more value to the massive multiplayer of Battlefield. The Reddit users also shared an anecdotal example of a community server that banned sniper rifles, which turned into the most popular server. It remained cluttered with players throughout the day with zero downtime.
