Battlefield 2042 Players Report Low FPS Gameplay

It seems that Battlefield 2042 has a low FPS problem already, as players report frame drops in Early Access.

If you’re hopping into Battlefield 2042 Early Access, it’s important to note that the game’s frames-per-second are hopefully not too reflective of the game’s final product.

After all, while all the Battlefield 2042 maps are available to play, and every Specialist is available, the game’s performance isn’t amazing.

On top of that, some Battlefield 2042 players aren’t getting XP in-game, according to new reports.

And there’s one major feature missing from Battlefield 2042 that has fans outraged.

Battlefield 2042 Low FPS Issues

It’s only been a few hours since release and already fans are reporting low FPS issues on Battlefield 2042.

Although performance is noticeably better than the game’s Beta, Battlefield 2042 isn’t without its fair share of problems. And one that’s most prevalent right now is the low FPS that players are getting in-game.

Even on powerful hardware, Battlefield 2042 players are experiencing major frame dips in-game.

This isn’t super surprising as even this Battlefield 2042 trailer has frame-drops!

What’s more, we know that Battlefield 2042 doesn’t even have 120 FPS support on PS5 and Xbox Series X, and we can now understand why.

YouTuber SkillUp even confirms that he’s getting around 90 FP at 1440p on Battlefield 2042’s Low settings, which is quite worrying. Especially so when you consider the content creator is running on an NVIDIA GeForce 3090 graphics card and Ryzen 9 3950X CPU.

How to Fix Low FPS in Battlefield 2042

We’ve heard similar complaints from players in-game, and verified the low FPS issue ourselves too. Hopefully, DICE will be able to boost performance for the game’s official launch next week.

In the meantime, here are the best settings to boost FPS and performance in Battlefield 2042!

On top of that, there are only 4 assault rifles in Battlefield 2042 at launch, and the limited roster has fans unhappy.

That said, taking a look at every weapon in Battlefield Portal mode more than makes up for the limitation.

How is my 3070/i7 combo performing better than this?

I got better FPS in the beta. I am playing on a 2k ultrawide monitor. My PC has an rtx 3090 paired with a Ryzen 3900X. During the beta I had 100 fps on Max settings. I am running the same settings but now I'm stuck at around 45-65 fps with the same settings (rtx off and DLSS on) on the same map. This game is plagued with issues and should have had another beta test.
