After months of waiting, Battlefield 2042 players finally have a scoreboard to help keep track of kills, assists, deaths, and more in-game stats. Starting tomorrow, Battlefield 2042’s update 3.3 adds a new scoreboard, bug fixes, control and keybinding changes, and the release of the Steadfast Exclusive Legendary bundle for owners of the Gold Edition, Ultimate Edition, Year 1 Pass, and Ultimate Pack upgrade owners.
The scoreboard includes a match overview, which shows objective progression and ticket counters, plus kills, assists, and deaths. Check out the image below for a look.
New scoreboard features include a team vs. team split for modes like Conquest, Breakthrough, Rush, and TDM, plus inclusion of death stats.
“While these changes were two of your most-requested missing pieces, this is the first version of the Scoreboard, and further improvements will be made to this in subsequent updates, based upon your continued feedback such as the Scoreboard being available during the End of Round screens,” DICE said in a blog post.
Meanwhile, the Steadfast bundle comes with a new character skin, new weapon skins, plus a new player card background and card icon.
Other fixes include:
- Fixed a game crash that could occur on Origin or Xbox One when signing in/out while using an Xbox One controller
- Setting “Chat” Key Bindings no longer requires a game restart to take effect
- Adjusted Aim Assist on console to ensure that the system is in effect when analogue sticks are at 100% of their range. Previously it was only active at ranges below 100%
- Fixed a bug where takedowns would not result in a kill on Xbox One and PlayStation®4
- Established new location for our EU Data Centre as Frankfurt
- Conquest & Breakthrough – fixed a bug where the Securing Objective XP-event was triggered even after a Capture Point was already fully captured
- Hazard Zone – fixed a visual bug displaying squad mates during the match found sequence
- Hazard Zone – fixed a bug where the End of Round XP gains sometimes didn’t trigger
Developer DICE has its work cut out for it on Battlefield 2042, with more than 60,000 players petitioning for refunds amid widespread criticism of the game. Earlier this month, the studio said that future Battlefield 2042 maps will be smaller after players criticized the game for being a “walking simulator.” EA appears to lay the blame at the feet of the COVID pandemic and Halo Infinite.
