Battlefield 2042 – 4v4 ESB Flashpoint

ESB rules are developed together with some of the top Battlefield teams that are active in our events. With Battlefield 2042 changing regularly, we’ll make sure to keep our rules updated regularly to reflect any changes.

IMPORTANT: Please note that this ruleset is still work-in-progress. There will likely be changes to it over the coming months as we start testing it on a larger scale. Don’t forget to provide your feedback through our Discord and to check the changelog regularly to see what has changed.

1.4 GLITCHES:

We ask teams to refrain from abusing known glitches to get an advantage in matches.

Known Glitches:

  • None

Due to the different nature of other glitches not listed above, each case will be reviewed individually.

1.5 ROOFS & AREAS:

If a player enters a banned roof or area, the game will kill the player and display a message to ‘stay inside the play area’.

Note: You can also see a visual representation of the banned areas by clicking HERE.

1.6 RESTRICTION PENALTIES:

  • If a team violates a Known Glitches restriction, they forfeit the map in which the infraction occurred.
  • Teams are required to report and provide proof of any rule infraction(s) at the end of the map in which the infraction occurred. Failure to do so can possibly void any penalty for the opposing team.

Note #1: There are no listed penalties for the items listed in Section 1.2 because these items are already banned inside the game in each Portal experience we created, and therefore can’t be equipped/used.
Note #2: There are also no penalties for getting on banned roofs and areas because the game will automatically kill the player if they enter one of those areas.

3.0 Server Settings

3.1 SERVER HOSTING:

The player (and their squad) that creates the server will always be placed on the US team.

Please join the server as a squad, so it puts you all on the same team without any issues. Joining individually will assign players in an ABABABAB order and isn’t practical.

The RESTART MAP and NEXT MAP features now work properly in portal, please use them.

3.2 SERVER OVERVIEW:

Every server MUST be password protected. We recommend that teams change their server password before every match to avoid people keeping track of old passwords and joining as possible players.

To access Experience Hosting, press: Play > Battlefield Portal > Host > Experience Code

The game will then ask you to provide:

Server Details:

  • Name: ESB Match
  • Description: –

Server Settings:

  • Welcome Message: –
  • Password: ON

Once you are done entering the above information, press “Host Server.”

Note: The server region is based on the location of the player hosting the server. When server quotas are full in a specific region, it will host the server in another region.

3.5 AIM ASSIST OPTIONS

In Battlefield 2042, there are 2 Aim Assist options in the game:

  • Aim Assist (former Slow-Down):
    • Controls whether Aim Assist is allowed for players using the Aim Assist option. When this is set to OFF, the crosshair will not adjust its speed when tracking over an enemy player.
  • Aim Assist Zoom Snap (former Auto-Rotation):
    • Controls whether Snap-to-target is used for Aim Assisted players. When this is set to OFF, the crosshair will not snap to a nearby target when entering ADS.

For all of our events, and in all our experience codes, the Aim Assist option is turned ON and the Aim Assist Zoom Snap is turned OFF.
