Fans Think Bots Are Already Destroying Battlefield 2042

DICE

Those who pre-ordered Battlefield 2042 have been immersing themselves in the early-access open beta, and while there are always issues (after all, it IS a beta), majority of the reviews have been positive.

From twirling tornadoes, to one of the most gigantic in-game maps and hyper-realistic weather conditions on guns, the game has many incredible additions - but players aren't too happy about the amount of bots that appear to be taking over. 

What is in the Battlefield 2042 beta?

One of the promises for Battlefield 2042's features were that there would be larger player counts for current-gen consoles and would be including 128 players in any given game.

However, this can come with its own problems - especially during a beta phase as there may not be enough players to fill entire lobbies, and what happens when you can't fill a lobby? Bots arrive.

Many players have reported lobbies that are pretty much just themselves and bots, and have either complained that the game is too easy, or too difficult with the introduction of their new artificial friends. After all, there's nothing more frustrating than thinking you’re the best at racking up a kill count until you find out you weren’t even playing with real people. 

Players are also complaining that some of the bots are 'acting erratically', by either failing to react or engage in combat or just outright killing you instantly with zero mercy. 

Will DICE do anything about the increase in bots?

Again, it's important to remember that these reports came in from players during the early stages of the Battlefield 2042 pre-order beta, meaning not many people had access to the game. But it does lend to question, if the game tailors off in interest with players a few months after release, will the bot situation still be as infuriating?

With the game set for a full release in just over a month, will DICE be able to iron out all the issues in time for the polished final result, or will this beta result in further delays for the upcoming Battlefield game and its potential battle royale mode?
