Battlefield 2042’s Big Map Changes

The spawn and the flags points on both would get moved close together to reduce the time that players spend traveling, and the distribution of vehicles would get tweaked so that you are forced to spend lesser time on foot.
The game has received some extra cover in open spaces in other to reduce the frequency of long-range firefights, and also added flags and objectives. DICE stated that the additional cover and line of sight blockers should aid in resolving some of the issues that the community has highlighted.
More Map Changes
Other changes in the game include some environment tweaks, like changing areas of grass into the mud to better immerse players in the battlefield, as well as reductions to the availability and cooldown of vehicles. Dice stated that those vehicles changes should make the objective areas of 128-players battles less chaotic, something that the fans have been asking for a while now.
The first batch of match changes, which includes the alterations to vehicles, would be released in the game’s next update. The remaining changes – to spawn points, flag locations, and cover – will arrive sometime in season 1, which is expected to launch this June or July.
