Battlefield 2042 talks up plans to tackle performance issues, weapon spread, and XP farming
Battlefield V is a single-player, story-driven campaign that features the War Stories mode. In this mode, players can fight in four different battles from WWII and witness firsthand how your decisions change history. The game also has a focus on character customization to allow for personalization of player’s soldiers including facial hair options along with color changes and other cosmetic gear selections. Additionally, there are three levels of difficulty: Recruit (normal), Regular (hardcore), and Veteran (insane).
Battlefield 2042 was released globally on Friday, and developer Dice isn’t going to let the game languish without any upgrades for very long. A developer blog regarding the road ahead gives some insight into the game’s next two upgrades and what the developers are focused on with them.
The blog begins with a review of server and game performance, noting that hitmarkers do not always register properly and players do not always spawn onto servers with their desired loadout. The former is said to be difficult to duplicate but is being looked into, while the latter will be addressed in the game’s second update. The developers have also uncovered and corrected a significant problem with the Xbox Series X/S version, while PC users can expect further improvements in the future to minimize CPU load and boost framerates.
The developers then discussed weapon spread, stating that versions 2 and 3 would address unforeseen weapon behavior. Weapon spread will be corrected worldwide while zoomed in and moving, spread decreasing quicker and sooner when pacing shots, and spread being excessively high when players run and then zoom in with Portal weapons will all be addressed in the near future.
Finally, owing to users creating XP farms, the programmers address the temporary suspension of XP gains in Solo, Co-Op, and Custom Portal Experiences. Those shutdowns have been deleted as of this past weekend, since XP limits are finally operating as planned.
Update 2 is planned to be released tomorrow, followed by update 3 in early December and a fourth update before the Christmas season. The developers will also discuss the game’s first season, which is set to launch in early 2022.
Drew Brees is a New Orleans legend. He played quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for 15 of his 20 NFL seasons. Brees opted to go on a new adventure once his football career ended. The future Hall of Famer switched careers to sports journalism, which set him up for a memorable Thanksgiving in New Orleans.
On Thanksgiving, Drew Brees will announce the Saints-Bills game.

Drew Brees currently works for NBC Sports’ Football Night in America as an NFL commentator. He comes on the show once a week to review the day’s events and talk about the next Sunday Night Football showdown.
On Thanksgiving Day, NBC will air the late game between the New Orleans Saints and the Buffalo Bills. This time, Brees isn’t simply going to cover the game. He’s really taking his first steps inside the broadcast booth.
With Michelle Tafoya reporting from the sidelines, the former Saints quarterback will be calling the game with Mike Tirico.
The atmosphere in the Caesars Superdome will likely be electrifying, particularly with both the Saints and the Bills playing for pride and playoff implications.
Drew Brees’ first time announcing an NFL game takes place in the city where he assisted in the rebuilding of a team.
Drew Brees accomplished pretty about everything on the football field. He’s been to 13 Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl, and established other records throughout his career. He’s now settling into the next chapter of his career.
Brees’ enthusiasm for the game couldn’t keep him away from it for long, even if he wasn’t playing anymore. He discussed the difficulty of transitioning from the field to the broadcast booth in an interview with The Dan Patrick Show.
Brees said, “It’s a different skill set.” “It’s a combination of muscles.” To begin with, there is a distinction to be made between broadcasting and in-studio work. Broadcasting is similar to playing a game to me. In the same manner, I prepare and watch movies. I consider how I would approach the opposition squad. It’s just a question of being able to communicate with the folks who are listening and watching.
Working in the studio at NBC Sports, according to Brees, poses a unique challenge.
“You walk into the studio and it’s a lot faster,” he said. “You have a lot more work to do in a short period of time. You’re attempting to provide a summary of the events of the full day. College football is broadcasting, and NFL is in-studio. You must have a broad understanding of the basic landscape of both.
Drew Brees seemed to be becoming more at ease on set each week. He’ll have a great post-playing career if he applies the same dedication to broadcasting as he did to the game.
On his return to New Orleans, the former quarterback speaks out.
It’s impossible to discuss the New Orleans Saints without mentioning Drew Brees.
After Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the city of New Orleans, the 42-year-old former quarterback stepped in to aid. His football skills and leadership off the field shone brightly at a difficult period.
Brees has an unique affinity with New Orleans after such a lengthy career in the NFL.
During the Saints-Bills game, the All-Pro will most likely have to keep his cool. He’ll be visiting the Superdome for the first time since his retirement, and it’ll definitely be a memorable occasion.
“Unfortunately, my last experience in the Dome was with no fans,” Brees added. “It’s been a long since I’ve been in the Dome with all that excitement and the chanting Who Dat country.” This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’ll be strange since I’m there to broadcast a game, but it’ll be amazing to have that feeling again.
At halftime of the game, the Saints will commemorate No. 9. Over the years, his contributions to the organization have been significant.
Even though Drew Brees isn’t in uniform, his high football IQ will be on full show on Thanksgiving.

We’re all searching for methods to save money in this bad economy. Doing your own vehicle maintenance is one method to save money. How to replace your own oil has previously been explained. Today, we’ll look at another simple maintenance task that you may do yourself.
Your car’s tires may quickly turn into a money hole if you’re not attentive. Tires are not inexpensive. A brand new one may cost upwards of $80. You’ll spend at least $400 on a new pair of tires per year if you replace them every year. Boo.
Rotating your tires on a regular basis is a simple strategy to increase the life of your tires. Tire rotation entails moving the location of each tire on the vehicle. Some guys never get their tires rotated, and those who do generally only give it a quick lubrication. However, most establishments would charge them at least $20 for this easy 15-minute job. By doing it yourself, you can save money. We’ll show you how in today’s article.
Why Should You Rotate Your Tires?
The wear patterns on the front and rear tires are distinct. The front tires, for example, bear more than 60% of your car’s weight; as a result, front tires wear out quicker than rear tires. Additionally, turning causes the front tires to wear at different rates. In the United States, we tend to make left turns quicker than right ones. This increases the weight on the right front tire, causing it to wear out quicker than the left. You end up with uneven tread wear after hundreds of hours of driving.
By altering the placements of your tires, rotating tires equalizes these natural wear patterns. You’ll have a smoother and safer ride if you rotate your tires on a regular basis. More significantly (at least for me), increasing the life of your tires will save you money in the long run.
Oh, and flipping tires around is also a macho activity.
When Should You Rotate Your Tires?
The suggested tire rotation schedule may be found in your car’s owner’s handbook. Tires should be rotated every 5,000 miles, according to most manufacturers. Rotating your tires is simple to remember if you do it every time you replace your car’s oil.
A jack for your car. Although you may use the jack that came with your automobile to rotate your tires, it is not suggested. It’s designed to raise your automobile for a brief period of time so you can replace a tire swiftly. Using a hydraulic floor jack is the safest option. A decent floor jack will cost you about $100, but your safety is well worth the money. A vehicle jack may also be used for other maintenance tasks.
Jack takes a stand. You’ll need some jack stands to rest the vehicle on while you change the tires. A good pair of jack stands will set you back about $30.
You can make a jack stand out of a cinderblock and a two-by-four if you don’t want to spend the money. To avoid scratching the bottom of your automobile, just put the cinderblock beneath a wheel and the two by four on top of the cinderblock. Lower the automobile jack to the point where the car is resting on the cinderblock and two-by-four. Wala! Jack stands in a flash!
Tire Rotation Pattern: Non-directional or Directional?
We need to know what pattern we’ll use to rotate our tires before we start releasing those lug nuts. The manner in which you rotate your tires is determined by a number of criteria, the most important of which is whether your vehicle has directional or non-directional tires.
When it comes to directional tires, there are a few things to keep in mind. Directional tires feature a “one-way” tread pattern that is tailored for the direction the tires spin on the automobile, thus they may be used on either the left or right side of the vehicle. The grooves are oriented to improve handling and channel water out from beneath the tire on wet terrain, decreasing hydroplaning and boosting wet traction.
The direction of rotation of the tire is indicated by little arrows or triangles on the sidewall.
Simply swap the front right tire for the rear right tire and the front left tire for the back left tire to rotate directional tires, as shown:
Rotating Non-Directional Tires is a simple process. Non-directional tires have a tread pattern that allows the tire to be put on the wheel in any direction of rotation. When you rotate the tires, you may alter which side they are on.
Use the cross pattern to spin non-directional tires. Move the front tires to the opposite sides of the rear axle in rear-wheel drive cars: left-front to right-rear and right-front to left-rear. The rear tires are straightened out. This is how it appears visually:
On front-wheel-drive automobiles, just reverse the procedure. Move the front tires straight back and the rear tires to the opposite sides of the front tires.
Is it possible to rotate the spare in?
Some ancient automobile maintenance manuals advise drivers to use their spare tire to give one of the other tires a much-needed rest. The issue with this advise is that most current spare tires aren’t built to be driven for long periods of time. They’re usually smaller, lighter in weight, and have a shorter tread depth. They’re just meant to get you to a shop where the original tire can be repaired. That is all there is to it.
Some vehicles still come with full-size spare tires that match the vehicle. They are often seen in off-road vehicles and many SUVs. It’s a good idea to rotate your spare tire into use if you have a vehicle with a matching spare tire. The proposed rotation is seen in the image below:
The Best Way to Rotate Your Tires
20 minutes are required.
1. Put the parking brake on. It’s just for your own protection.
2. Loosen all of your wheels’ lug nuts. You don’t want to remove them entirely just yet. Loosening them now will make unscrewing them much simpler when the vehicle is raised.
3. Using a vehicle jack, raise one wheel and set a jack stand below it. If you just have one or two jack stands (or cinder blocks), you’ll need to perform some mental planning before you start jacking to figure out how you’ll lower and raise your automobile. Because you have fewer stands, you’ll have to lower and raise your automobile more often to swap them out. Despite the additional work, you won’t be on the job for much more than 20 minutes. Some folks I’ve seen put their automobile on all four jack stands. It’s not the safest thing to do, but it will help you do the task quicker since you won’t have to replace out jack stands.
4. Remove the tires and rotate them according to the manufacturer’s recommendations for your tire type. When reinstalling a tire on a wheel mount, tighten the lug nuts as much as possible by hand.
5. Remove the jack stands and lower the automobile. Tighten the nuts considerably further using the lug wrench. Working the lug nuts diagonally from one to the next is the optimum method. It seems to be a star pattern. This ensures that the screws are tightened evenly. The brake rotor might be warped if the lug nuts are tightened unevenly.
When tightening lug nuts, make a star pattern.
That concludes our discussion. Now all you have to do is write down the mileage when you rotated your tires and remember to do it again in 5,000 miles.
