How the Battlefield 2042 Plus Menu Works

Battlefield 2042 is looking to win fans over after Battlefield V ended up being a disappointment, completely scrapping any form of single-player for an intense 128-player online experience and adding plenty of new features.

We’ve already seen how the game’s semi-futuristic setting has made for some interesting weapons and the new Specialists System that is replacing the Class System but a lot of fans want to know; what the heck is this Plus Menu? Well, thankfully we've been able to actually use it as part of the Battlefield 2042 open beta, so here's the lowdown!

What Does The Plus Menu Do In Battlefield 2042?

It’s a pretty cool feature, as the Plus Menu will let fans customize weapons while on the battlefield.

Players no longer have to die and respawn in order to customize their weapons from the spawn menu. You choose the attachments to add to your Plus Menu when spawning in, and then have completely free access to them whenever you want.

You can also swap weapon attachments on the fly while playing, which is great for those that are caught in a pickle and need to pick a different loadout on the run.

It's a pretty solid feature so far, to be honest. There are a few quirks with it, like how you can immediately reload a gun by changing ammo type, but it's a pretty intuitive, simple, and useful way of switching your loadout on the fly, and one we haven't seen in most games of its type.

In fact, why not check out some of our loadouts? They all use the Plus Menu so you can try it yourself. We have all sorts, including the LCMG, PBX-45, and M5A3 amongst others!

How to access the Plus Menu

You can access the plus menu easily in Battlefield 2042. On controller, it's mapped to L1 or LB, whilst on keyboard, you'll find it by holding the T key.

Battlefield 2042's full release date is November 19th 2021 with a host of new and returning game modes and weapons.
