I had a good time with the BF 2042 beta and it definitely feels like BF4 again. My biggest issues are with spotting. Spotting still seemed non existent to me. I could spot someone or a vehicle and that spot lasted a whole .05 of a second. The only time spotting felt good was with the recon drone. I was able to get alot of spotting done and it felt like I was a huge help to my team when I was doing it, but I received absolutely no points for spotting, no kill assists, no anything. Even though I was helping the team there was no incentive at all for me to continue doing so. Also, one of the attack helicopter seats was for spotting and that was it. That helicopter moves so fast to try to avoid being shot down that spotting seat was completely pointless. Not only was it incapable of spotting anyone or anything, the camera almost induces motion sickness. That seat was pointless and all it did was give me a few points towards the helicopter by leaching off the pilot doing all the game play. They need to add bombs or something to that helicopter seat to make it at least somewhat functional. The gun play was good, but I had an easier time sniping people with an engineer kit crouched with a tripod than I did with a sniper rifle. I liked the gadgets, especially the heat seeker missiles to shoot down air vehicles. The PC version felt better than the PS4 version, mostly because the PS4 beta seemed much less populated on the large maps with only 64 players. The 128 players on PC was a huge difference. I felt like I was running into people and enemies constantly which was nice. Overall it was a good beta, but I personally didn't get that joy I used to have with BF4. I'm thinking its just my own personal preferences that have changed over the years. I definitely prefer single player campaign games nowadays over multiplayers.
Heres my one good highlight from my PC gameplay. My weapons and gadgets are all over the place because I was using the mouse scroll wheel to swap around.
