Battlefield 2042: A new patch for Season 6 has been released
The game developer DICE recently unveiled a comprehensive set of patch notes for the much-awaited Season 6 installment of Battlefield 2042, titled 'Dark Creations'. Besides the standard package of bug rectifications, the novel update also unveils several operator equilibrium tweaks, particularly for two overlooked Engineers, Boris and Crawford.
As elaborated by the developers, Boris' modification is aimed at optimizing his Sentry Turret's damage output.
