Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1.0 introduces more Quality of Life improvements alongside the Manifest Rework and goes live across all platforms tomorrow, December 7th at 08:00 UTC. EA Games has also stated that Battlefield 2042’s upcoming Mid-Season Event will take place in the coming weeks. The event will last three weeks, with each week providing a new set of unlockable cosmetics and a new mode to play.

Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1.0’s Manifest Rework is intended to ensure that the map becomes more streamlined and offers up a tighter game space. This has also allowed for a complete pass throughout the location and provided stronger themes to previously underutilized spaces. The new update also brings adjustments and adds flag areas to the main game modes to cut travel times and provide stronger pathways and frontlines to seize points.

Here are the Points of Interest for the rework of the Manifest Map in Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1.0 :

  • Container Yard – North: The northern container yard has seen further military presence buildup, with the location now becoming an ad hoc refueling station for the ongoing conflict. The paths leading to and from the flag have been improved while the flag placement has been repositioned slightly towards the Quay.
  • Quay: As conflicts continue, the Quay has been treated to increased military defense encampments, with two new spaces on either end of the Quay. These locations act as Capture Points in certain modes, and when they aren’t in use they act as staging posts for entry onto the boats themselves.
  • Container Yard – South: This location has been moved closer to the action around the docked boats, with pathing improvements and further military buildup taking place throughout.
  • Weather Station: Time has not been a worthy ally for the Weather Station after recently suffering from a ground attack, one of these stations now sits in a burning ruin. The surrounding hillside has also received a traversal pass alongside additional light sources and ziplines to allow for increased traversal opportunity.

Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1.0 also features vault weapons from Battlefield 3 such as M416, M240B, M93R. Details and Unlock assignments of these new vault weapons are as follows:
