The first season of Battlefield 2042 is over and season two starts today. What is hidden in the 7GB update for the second Battlefield season: Master of Arms, we show you now.

New Battlefield map: Stranded

The new map Stranded takes you to a parched desert lake in Panama. You'll fight, as in Laid Down, in and around a grounded container ship that houses an arms-trafficking headquarters.

The map is divided into three areas, according to the developer: The northern and southern areas are more open, while you can expect close quarters of action in the central area.


Neuer Spezialist: Charlie Crawford

You can now go into action as new specialist Charlie Crawford and support your team with his Mounted Vulcan to build a stable defense for you and your team.

Mounted Vulcan? The Mounted Vulcan is a stationary minigun with immense firepower and is particularly effective against infantry and light vehicles.


New vehicle: EBLC-RAM

The EBLC-RAM is a maneuverable-armored reconnaissance and assault vehicle designed for ambush attacks on the enemy. You can place a beacon on the battlefield for your team members to access. In addition, the EBLC-RAM is equipped with an active protection system to intercept approaching anti-vehicle weapons. This makes the EBLC-RAM perfect for frontal attacks on the enemy.
