The second season of Battlefield 2042 is already live and will get a few new improvements and changes with update 2.1 today at 10:00 a.m. German time. So DICE decided to give the New Beginnings map a new look and introduce new weapons.
A revised fresh start
Fresh Start lives up to its name and gets a makeover with the new update. Here, DICE made the decision to “remove certain sections of the map” as they disrupted the flow of the game or were simply “too far away”.
To get you from A to B faster, DICE introduces the Polaris RZR Buggy, which lets you drive across the map. The small vehicle resembles a tiny SUV with armor.

You will also be dealing with new weapons after update 2.1. These include a few shotguns you might recognize from previous games in the series – such as the P90 from Battlefield 3, and the GOL Sniper Magnum and M1911 from Bad Company 2.
Bug fixes are also available in large numbers in the patch. You can read the full notes on the game’s official website read. A melee update will follow in mid-October.
