Battlefield 2042 is well and truly on the way, with a whole host of game modes and support for 128 players. Fans seem super excited for its release, and we're particularly looking forward to the free-to-play mode, as well as the Battlefield Portal.

It looks like Battlefield 2042 cheats are already widely available, and given that there's a lot of money to be made in selling hacks for our favourite games, Battlefield 2042's anti-cheat will have its work cut out at launch.

We'll keep you all updated on the state of Battlefield 2042's cheaters and hackers, but in the meantime why not check out some of our other guides in the run-up to release? We'll let you know which PC launchers Battlefield 2042 is on, as well as how the Battlefield 2042 Plus Menu works.
