Battlefield 2042 – Hazard Zone

Alongside weapon customization info, there is also a wealth of information for Hazard Zone. Despite how little we know about the upcoming game mode, we do know that Hazard Zone will be free-to-play, thanks to leaked details.

For those that are out of the loop, Hazard Zone is rumored to be something to challenge the Battle Royale formula, something new and built from the ground up specifically for Battlefield 2042.

Interestingly, there are rumors that the game mode will be similar to Escape From Tarkov, which features an extraction mechanic.

Similarly, according to data-mined information “extraction streaks” will be an integral part of the experience. It could be the case that successful extractions grant bonuses such as tactical upgrades, increased XP, and perks to help you in the fight.
