With this massive gameplay edit, we’ve got Contend Gaming’s very own Iskander Ben Amor getting caught in a storm while creeping up on a squad in Battlefield 2042 among other clips! “It’s far from perfect,” says Iskander “but I’m really enjoying the game so far and I’m optimistic that they can squash enough bugs to keep it fun!”

So, the next generation of all-out war is here. Does it live up to the promise of dynamically-changing battlegrounds, improved team play. and a cutting-edge arsenal?

Most players who have been able to play so far have had a bug-riddled experience. But does the gameplay make up for the shortcomings of the state of the game at launch?

Ben Amor continues: “Everyone is complaining about this game right now but I am still having a lot of fun with it. I do get why people are frustrated, but when the game works properly it really feels great and looks absolutely incredible on ultra settings.”

You can learn about all the vast, dynamic maps of Battlefield 2042 on EA’s maps page. Set across the globe, these massive battlefields will give you an even greater sense of spectacular, large-scale war, and have been crafted through a revamped design philosophy.

You’ll be able to use a full roster of cutting-edge weapons, vehicles, jets, helis, and all-new equipment inspired by the near-future of 2042. Summon the Ranger, a robotic dog built for battle, use the Syrette Pistol to heal squad members from afar, employ a grappling hook to reach new places, don a wingsuit, deploy a recon drone, and more.

“I feel like I am getting my money’s worth,” writes Ben Amor, “but I would love to see the following changes”:


  • Improvements to Hazard Zone (less bots, more players)
  • Better gun balancing (the M5A3 needs to be buffed to compete with the PP29 in my opinion)
  • Bug fixes (too many to list)

“It also feels weird that I can open a free to play game like Halo Infinite or Warzone and have more game modes to choose from than a full priced release like this. I am optimistic that they will make the right changes before the player base revolts and/or gets too small.”
