The Battlefield 2042 Beta started on October 6th for pre-orderers. After a few hours, it was clear: The best weapon in Battlefield 2042 is one that nobody expected.

What it's about? Battlefield 2042 is a long-awaited wish for many: Finally, away from the historical World War II corset, which narrowed the scenario, variety of weapons, attachments, and ammunition types.

How many weapons there will ultimately be in Battlefield 2042 is still unclear. However, the beta lets you try seven different ones:

  • 1x sniper
  • 1x Marksman
  • 1x LMG
  • 2x assault rifle
  • 2x gun
  • 2x SMG

A beast already in the beta: this weapon melts enemies

We're no longer making it exciting: The ultimate and by far the best weapon in the Open Beta of Battlefield 2042 is the K30 alias Kriss Vector. You unlock this submachine gun (SMG) after reaching level 6 in the beta.

Yes, the only playable map "Orbital" is very, very extensive. Nevertheless, you can use the K30 very flexibly. Kills up to 50 meters are no problem with this beast. At close range, it lets your enemies melt away, even with hip fire.

You should choose these attachments and perks: In order to get the most out of the K30 (Vector), you should pay close attention to which attachments are the best.

We make clear recommendations for the extended magazine, one of the sights, and the handle. You should also attach the silencer. This reduces your damage output by 5 points but ensures that you remain invisible on the minimap. This way, you can clean up a large group of enemies from behind before they even notice what is happening to them.


A certain operator? To round off the whole setup, you could now use the operator Casper. Its passive ability allows it to notice when opponents are nearby. In this case, the lower edge of the screen starts to flash red. Additionally, you can use his drone to scout flags before storming in like Rambo.

Could something change there? Depending on the source, the current beta version is already from the older iron and more than a few months old. If that's true, some things could change before the release.

Anyone who has diligently played the beta of Battlefield 1 and 5 knows: weapon, vehicle and gadget balancing can change significantly by the time the game starts.
