Battlefield Data The King of Mine is back and shared the first details about the Hazard Zone in Battlefield 2042.
when Battlefield 2042 Announced earlier this summer, DICE said the game includes three different experiences. Proven all-out warfare, a modified suite and community browser battlefield portal, and a mysterious third mode called the Hazard Zone.
Hazard zones are the only experience that DICE hasn’t yet elaborated on, but the recent Battlefield 2042 Closed Alpha may have been the first to show what it really is. The legendary data miner Temporyal, who gained attention for quality of work during the Battlefield 5 era, returned to the scene to share what he learned about hazard zones from in-game references.
Hazard zones, as some leaks suggest Inspired by Escape from Tarkov, And Hunt: Showdown, Permadeath Possibility of Permadeath-Death and Loss of Equipment. As previously thought, modes do not have their own map. Instead, it’s done anyway, with a modified version of the game’s existing maps, or some of them. Temporyal has discovered Alphamap, a hazard zone variant of Orbital, so it’s not surprising that others are present.
In PvEvP mode, a player with a Little Bird helicopter is inserted into a dangerous area. Mission to collect information from data drives and crashed satellites.. This setting is actually suggested in a recent Exodus in-game short film, making fun of some elements of the bigger conflict.
Throughout the map, you Encounter AI enemies during patrol, And they can even call for reinforcements. Like Tarkov, AI bosses appear as one of the big goals in the hazard zone.
There are other interesting points on the map. Like ammo stashes and uplinksYou can call your own reinforcements such as Robot Dog Ranger, ATV and so on. Temporary evidence of the respawn process has been found, but it is not clear how it fits into the big picture.
Dead players lose their equipment, but it’s not really clear if that means a permanent loss or if their character simply dies. According to Datamine, there are loadout insurance upgrades to prevent that.Temporarily dug up 11 other upgradesAdds armor / ammo at the start, faster recovery, additional storage for information, increased spotting duration, and more. As you play, you’ll earn hazard zone currencies that are likely to be used to purchase these perks and upgrade your weapons and gadgets.
Players extract in a similar way to the division’s dark zones. Call an extraction helicopter in the specified zone.. If you miss the helicopter, the extraction will fail.
Needless to say, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt. Data mining does not always accurately portray reality, and the information found may be related to canceled or evolved features. Indeed, many of Temporyal’s own discoveries in Battlefield 5 weren’t incorporated into the game, even though they were clearly over.
According to DICE, the hazard zone will be released shortly after the game is released. The beta will start in September and will be released in October, so it won’t be long before we know more. Battlefield 2042 will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S on October 22nd.
