Weapon proficiencies and new weapons explained

Weapon proficiencies for the update Battlefield 2042 class system are optional and passive benefits that encourage the use of specific weapon archetypes:

Three new weapons from the Battlefield Vault are now added to players arsenal; the M39 EMR (DMR), MTAR-21 (Assault rifle) and PP-2000 (sub-machine gun).

However, the big weapon addition is the introduction of three thermal scopes; the TR-1 Thermal 1.25x, T4 Thermal 2.5x, and 2038 Thermal 6x.

“On the balance front we have also made several steps to ensure that these attachments bring appropriate gameplay for today’s Battlefield. That means that some expectations of how these attachments work in real-life do not equate to a fun gameplay experience. Fun is always our priority when introducing new things to the Battlefield. So as an example, tactical smoke from gadgets, grenades or vehicles will be opaque to Thermal Scopes. While smoke and steam that originates from the environment will be transparent” – Battlefield 2042, Patch Notes.

The new update also features a map rework for Breakaway.
