Never back down

Battlefield 2042 - Season 05: New Dawn

A new dawn is upon us, No-Pat.

Head to Czechia and battle by an abandoned factory reclaimed by nature. Expand your arsenal with weapons like the new XCE Bar or GEW-46, surprise the enemy with three new grenade types, and lead the way with a new Squad Management system.

So, show no mercy – and never back down.

Season 05 features

New map: Reclaimed

Defy all odds on a new battlefield set in Czechia around an abandoned industrial facility, slowly being retaken by nature. Face the heat of vertical crossfire by a disused turbine, engage in vehicular combat around the crash site of a derailed train and survive an infantry meat grinder in a hidden bunker.

New weapons

Quickly swap attachments and engage foes at various distances with the high-precision bolt-action rifle, XCE Bar. The GEW-46, an old Battlefield 4 favourite, returns to let you experience high stability with short burst fire in medium-range engagements. And deal heavy damage at close range with the powerful BFP.50 hand cannon.

New grenades

Clear out infantry with the new Spring Grenade, a smaller explosive that bounces into the air before detonation. Surprise enemy armour with the Anti-Tank Grenade that detonates on impact against vehicles. Or lob a quick Mini Grenade that can be thrown faster and further than regular grenades.

    Battlefield 2042 game modes

    All-out warfare
    Battlefield Portal
    Battlefield Hazard Zone

    Conquest

    Battlefield's massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time supporting 128 players. The maps have been specifically designed for this vast scale, with action divided into "clusters" of various kinds. 

    Also, the action now centres around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.

    Breakthrough

    The return of Breakthrough sees two teams – Attackers and Defenders – battle over larger-scale sectors as the Attackers push towards the final objective. 

    Each sector is designed to house a larger number of players, enabling more strategic choices and more flanking opportunities. Approach the capture areas from multiple locations and take advantage of more types of tactical possibilities.

    Battlefield Portal

    Change the rules of war and discover unexpected battles across the wide universe of Battlefield. 

    Replay the reimagined classics Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 – or deploy on these timeless maps with the modern arsenal and content of Battlefield 2042.

    Battlefield Hazard Zone

    Get the intel you need on this tense new, squad-focused survival experience. Battlefield Hazard Zone combines edge-of-your-seat gameplay with the best of the Battlefield sandbox. 

    You must locate and retrieve critical Data Drives scattered throughout the battlefield, while fighting opposing squads with the same objective and Occupying Forces.

      Battlefield 2042 Specialists

    Based on Battlefield’s four Classes, Specialists have one unique Specialty and Trait – but the rest of the loadout is fully customisable.
