Battlefield 2042: Hazard Zone is a squad-based PvPvE mode

DICE has finally unveiled a new hazard mode for Battlefield 2042. This is a team-based PvPvE experience for collecting data drives and escaping from maps.

Hazard Zone is a squad-based mode where you see a group of players competing to collect and extract data drives scattered around a small arena after a satellite crash. Each player team consists of four players and aims to collect as many drives as possible before the storm becomes too intense for the aircraft to reach.

These efforts are further hampered by enemy AI units and the extreme weather conditions of the game. Also, there are only two time-limited opportunities that can be extracted during a match. In other words, only two squads can escape. If you die in this mode, you’ll see it placed on the spectator screen, but the Reinforcement Uplink item tells you that the squad members are back again.

The number of players in the mode depends on the platform selected. The Xbox One and PS4 have 24 players (6 squads) in the hazard zone, while the Xbox Series X / S, PS5, and PCs have 32 players (8 squads). All maps included in the game’s All Out Warfare mode have a variation of the hazard zone map.

DICE’s Danny Berlin very clearly stated in his presentation that “hazard zones are not in battle royale mode.” The main difference in Berlin is that your main purpose is to “extract alive from the hazard zone with as many data drives as possible, not kill”.Berlin also revealed that the focus is on building sqaud Previous Instead of just collecting items within the round, the match begins.

Berlin has also introduced a wide range of metagames around the hazard zone. Each extracted data drive corresponds to the set number of “Dark Market Credits”, which is the currency used only in the mode. These credits can be used before a match for a specialist’s new weapons, gadgets, or upgrades (and each squad can only have one for each specialist).

Hazard Zone is the third end following the all-out warfare (sampled in open beta) and a more bizarre portal where the features of five different Battlefield games are meshed into a single custom game creation tool. Mode. A little later, Battlefield 2042 will arrive on November 19th.
