Battlefield 2042 Season 4 – what’s new?

Battlefield 2042 Season 4 is almost here and this one comes with a new map, hardware and recon specialist. 

Battlefield 2042 Season 4 – A new map

Season 4, known as Eleventh Hour, is set to launch on February 28. It comes with a brand new map set in South Africa known as Flashpoint. With both enclosed spaces that encourage hand-to-hand combat and surrounding rocky terrain, all play-styles will be catered for. Meanwhile, the previous Discarded map is set for a rework.

A larger arsenal

The update will also see the addition of a Super 500 Shotgun sidearm and a fast firing AC9 SMG. Additionally, you will have access to the RM68 assault rifle and RMT-31 LMG. Finally, the SPH Explosive Launcher gadget will add a bit of theatre to a wide range of new weapons. 

Battlefield 1 has a surge in players, kicking the ass of 2042

Additionally, Battlefield 2042 Season 4 will also introduce the CAV-Brawler. This is an armoured personnel carrier and mobile spawn point. 

A new recruit

No update would be complete without a new agent. Known as the ‘ambush expert,’ Camilla Blasco is the latest recon specialist. She has the ability to deploy an X6-infiltration device which prevents enemies from locking onto nearby teammates. Her unique abilities also make her able to evade motion sensors. 

As another recon, Camilla will join the recon class which was originally part of a new organisation change for Battlefield 2042. This change saw all existing characters being sorted based on their class: engineer, medic, recon and assault.
