Battlefield 2042: Hotfix eliminates micro-stuttering after update 4.1
On May 19, Dice released update 4.1 for the first-person shooter Battlefield 2042. In addition to bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements, this also brought micro-stuttering into the multiplayer battles. As a result, the developers apparently went through the following night and have now released a hotfix for the PC version.
Actually, the update 4.1 for Battlefield 2042 should make life easier for the players. For example, the “overall power” of the SG-36 guard system has been reduced and the recoil of stock weapons has been revised. But there were not only conveniences in the package, but also annoying micro-stutters, which apparently gave developer Dice a sleepless night. The result is a recently released hotfix, who straightens everything out again, at least on the PC. He should gradually reach Steam, Origin, the EA App and the Epic Games Store.
Hotfix 4.1 fixes these problems
While Xbox fans are still waiting for the problem to be fixed, Dice explained the PC hotfix in the official Battlefield 2042 forum. Accordingly, the following changes have been made:
- Fixed an issue that resulted in micro stuttering on PC
- A temporary change has been made to Breakthrough to remove the 128-player Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Playstation 5 map layouts used in our new 64-player Breakthrough playlist.
- This is to fix an unexpected issue that was causing incorrect ticket values and vehicle counts to be displayed on all maps. We will temporarily revert to a fixed rotation of smaller layouts in Breakthrough until our team can fix this issue.
More on the subject: Update 4.1 is here, Breakthrough 128 will be cancelled
Meanwhile, Battlefield has 2042to contend with an even bigger problem involving player counts. They are said to have averaged 1,355 players over the last 30 days, and the number is said to have slipped below 1,000 at times. EA recently confirmed that it did not want to give up either Battlefield 2042 or the brand.
