A shield has already been removed from Battlefield 2042 due to a glitch

Battlefield 2042 is set to release on Nov. 19, 2021. It is going to be the latest entry in the series after many years of waiting, and is EA’s return to modern day combat, and a departure from the World War era the company explored with Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V.

However, some players have been able to play multiplayer up to a week early if they purchased the Ultimate Edition or accessed the game through EA Play. That means we’re already seeing some technical issues.

For example, we recently learned that EA now disabled the SOB-8 Ballistic Shield that belongs to the new specialist, Santiago “Dozer” Espinoza. The specialist is currently disabled across all playlists, and the tweet below tells you why it was a necessary action, but basically, it’s able to take massive amounts of damage and can even stop tank bullets.

Tom Henderson, a famous leaker in the gaming scene also chimed in with how the shield was also capable of stopping tank bullets.

EA confirmed the removal in a tweet, adding that it’ll be removed across the All-Out Warfare, Hazard Zone, and Portal modes.

The glitch is quite significant and its evident that the gadget needed to be taken off the battlefield to keep the game fair and balanced. Otherwise, it would’ve severely affected the game for many other players who are currently playing the game.

There is no word yet on when EA plans on returning the specialist, but you can follow Battlefield Direct Communication twitter account for more updates as they come.
