The fact that DICE removed the Rush mode from the “Featured” playlist of BF 2042 didn’t taste good to the players at all. After a big outcry from the community, the popular mode is now available again.
Update from January 14 – 11:02 am:
Many of the fans had wished that the Rush mode would not be removed from the game – it is currently one of the absolute favorites of the players.
However, DICE decided to remove Rush and replace it with other game modes instead. However, the feedback from the players was so negative that the studio apparently felt compelled to reverse this change just a few days after the exchange. In other words: Rush mode is currently back in the Battlefield 2042 Featured playlist. How long he can stay in the game this time remains to be seen.
Battlefield 2042: Developers are removing Rush from the main mode
Battlefield 2042 didn’t get off to a good start in mid-November. Especially in the first few days, the shooter felt like a completely unfinished beta version – bugs and problems were found on every corner. One or the other parallel to the catastrophe start of Cyberpunk 2077 was drawn at the time.
In the last few weeks, however, the developers have put a lot of effort into fixing the worst blunders and making Battlefield 2042 a solid shooter. The popular Rush mode, which was missing at launch, also found its way into the featured playlist. The fans loved it.
But now this fan favorite has been removed from the game, which annoys the players (source: official EA forum). What’s going on there? DICE already announced at the launch of Rush that the mode would only be part of the game for a short time. When the developers saw that the game mode was well received by the fans, they decided to extend the phase again.
But now they pulled the plug, banned Rush from the featured playlist and replaced it with Free for Fall & Gunmaster game modes.
Rush is still there – but only in Portal mode
But Rush was not completely removed from the game by the developers. Anyone who takes a look at Battlefield 2042’s portal mode will still find the mode when searching for custom servers. However, this method has a major drawback: Whoever plays on these servers cannot earn experience points.
If you don’t want to do without it, you can consider another alternative. As DICE Community Manager Kevin Johnson explains on Twitter, fans can Play Rush this week in Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s Portal mode on official servers. On these it should be possible to continue to collect experience points and thus level up.
Johnson also assures that Rush of Ages will return in the future. However, it remains to be seen whether the team could eventually turn this into a permanent game mode.
