Battlefield 2042 Season 2 is on the horizon and another heavy content drop is developing. From a new map in Stranded to another specialist in Crawford, various pieces of equipment and of course a Battle Pass there is a lot.
11 weeks after Battlefield 2042’s first seasonal update, EA keeps things moving with Season 2: Master of Arms. While the developers have already revealed plans for Season 3 and beyond, including the return of the classic class system, there is still a lot to come in the upcoming patch.
Much like how Season 1 pulled players back, the next update aims to achieve the same results with a brand new map, a unique specialist, and a Battle Pass filled to the brim with weapons, gadgets, and vehicles galore .
So, before the new patch is released, you should refresh yourself with everything there is to know about Battlefield 2042 Season 2.
Season 2 is locked and on its way with a bunch of new content.
Season 2 release date
Battlefield 2042 Season 2 is scheduled to go live on Tuesday, August 30th. After significant delays prior to Season 1, we now appear to be back on track, releasing new content roughly every three months.
There is currently no exact release time for the Season 2 patch, although we’ll definitely update you here once details emerge.
New Stranded map
In Season 2 comes a new map called Stranded. In the middle of a drained lake in Panama, players fight both over far outposts and through a stranded container ship.
With a mix of open and narrow areas, the map’s layout lends itself to both long-range and close-range combat, depending on the spawn point. Additionally, a communications tower behind the ship serves as the highest point on the map, allowing for a clear view of much of the war-torn area.
Stranded is sure to be another chaotic addition to the 2042 map rotation.
Charlie Crawford, a new Support Specialist, joins the fight in Season 2. This British character jumps into Battlefield 2042 with a deadly mounted Vulcan sentry and a unique ammo replenishment perk.
By reviving fallen allies in the heat of battle, Crawford would automatically replenish his gadget’s ammo. Said gadget is the Mounted Vulcan Sentinel, an operable turret with shields to protect you during use.
New weapons, gadgets and vehicles
Season 2 also introduces three new weapons, two vehicles, and a unique gadget, all included in free tiers throughout the Battle Pass.
The AM40 carbine, Avancys LMG, and PF51 pistol all fulfill unique roles in Battlefield 2042. The former intends to bridge the gap between an assault rifle and an SMG, while the latter attempts to do the same by combining SMG and pistol gameplay bridged. Meanwhile, the new LMG appears to be designed for mobility, allowing players to maintain speed even with the devastating weapon.
In terms of new vehicles for Season 2, players can expect to see a lot more variety on the ground once the EBLC-RAM and Polaris RZR are added. The former joins the game immediately, while the latter is set to be implemented later in the season.
The whole thing is rounded off by a new gadget in the form of the concussion grenade. As the name suggests, this piece of gear temporarily confuses enemies, allowing you to reposition and engage for an easy kill.
Battle Pass Season 2
100 Tiers of Free and Premium Unlocks will soon be available in Battlefield 2042’s second Battle Pass. As always, rich content is provided under the free tiers, while cosmetics are behind the paywall.
The Season 2 Battle Pass is your way to unlock new gear in the game.
Everything from the specialists mentioned above to brand new weapons and vehicles are available without a price tag. But for those willing to splurge for around $10 USD, a bunch of specialist skins, weapon charms, and even a melee weapon await.
