Dice has released a list of all bugs and mistakes known to you a few days ago. Some points mentioned here takes up the obligatory launch update. The complete list of all patch notes can be found at EA. Here are the most important changes for version 0.2.1:
Server: DICE Takes changes to the servers to prevent so-called Rubber banding. Here it seems like avatars or vehicles are teleporting, as some frames are missing. The problem occurs mainly in all-out warfare mode.
Hovercrafts: The air pillow boats in Battlefield 2042 are currently ensuring some laughs in the community. Like spinning, the vehicles can still climb the steepest walls, and with enough momentum you can even catapult them into the air and let them fly over long distances.

Other changes include balancing for the weapons, less camera jerks and the correct display of the usernames. There are also the compulsory bug fixes.
Dice still has to work
It is noticeable that nothing was turned on the gameplay except for weapons balancing, and although there are various complaints from the community. Here are only two prominent examples:
Weapons: In Battlefield there is a so-called Bloom effect while firing. This means the scattering of the balls is getting bigger. This is basically realistic, of course, in Battlefield 2042, however, ensures that some gamers feel like they could not meet their enemies, even if the crosshair has this exactly in the sights.
No Respawn: It can happen that the timer for a respawn does not run when you go to ground. If that happens, you stuck and can not be revived. If you become a victim of this bug, you have to leave the game, unfortunately.
