Weapon attachments in Battlefield 2042: How to modify your weapons in All-Out Warfare and Portal

 In Battlefield 2042, you can modify your weapons by selecting weapon attachments. The method for doing this differs between the game modes.We tell you how you can customize your weapons anywhere.


What do I need the weapon attachments for? Gun attachments help you to adapt your weapon to your own needs. Visors are especially important to make aiming easier - especially at a distance. 


Other attachments such as grenade launchers, laser pointers or silencers are also available. They often come with advantages and disadvantages that you have to weigh up. The underflow flashlight, for example, can blind opponents in a firefight, but it reveals your position, especially in the dark.


How many gun attachments can I use? The gun attachments are divided into four categories: visor, ammunition, underflow and barrel. You can use one essay for each of these categories. So you have a maximum of 4 attachments on your weapons at the same time. However, you can take 3 essays per category into a match for selection.


Unlock weapon attachments

How do I unlock weapon attachments in All-Out Warfare? Most weapon attachments are unlocked by killing the respective weapon. You need 360 kills to unlock most of the weapon attachments for each weapon. 


Only in a few exceptions do you have to do certain kills to unlock an essay. An example of this is the LCMG underflow 40-MM-AP. To unlock this, you have to make 50 kills with the underflow grenade launcher of the LCMG. 


You can check which weapon attachments are available and how you unlock them in the collection menu. You can do this in the main menu of every game mode.


Note, however, that you only unlock weapon attachments for the weapons with which you collect these kills. Kills with, for example, the currently best weapon, the DM7, only unlock weapon attachments for the DM7, not for other weapons.


How do I unlock weapons kits in the Battlefield Portal? The following applies to weapons from Battlefield 2042: All attachments that you unlocked in All-Out Warfare are available to you in the Battlefield Portal - and vice versa. 


55 of the 77 weapons in the Battlefield Portal are from older Battlefield games. These games are Battlefield 3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 1942. For these weapons, all available weapon attachments are unlocked in the Battlefield Portal from the start. 


Note that not all weapons from the old games can be modified with weapon attachments. The weapons are also not guaranteed to have a selection for every weapon attachment category.


This is how you modify your weapons in All-Out Warfare

Where do I customize my weapon attachments in All-Out Warfare? For the weapon attachments in All-Out Warfare you have to consider 2 things:


  • You have a choice of a maximum of 3 weapon attachments per category, which you can exchange at any time in a game. This is called the “plus menu”.
  • You can adjust in another menu which weapon attachments are available to you in the plus menu.

We explain to you how both work and how you can adapt it in the game.

What is the plus menu? The plus menu is a new feature in Battlefield 2042. Its function is reminiscent of the weapon attachment options from the Crysis games.

Players can modify the attachments for their weapon at any time in a match. The exchange of weapon attachments takes a few seconds - when changing the ammunition type, a reloading animation is also added. That allows you a lot of flexibility in a game. So you can react spontaneously and quickly to new game situations.

The plus menu is very important in All-Out Warfare.
The plus menu is very important in All-Out Warfare.

An example of this is when in a moment you equip your weapon for close combat to storm a building. In the plus menu, you choose a sight with 1x zoom, a silencer and a magazine with a lot of ammunition. As soon as the building has been conquered, you want to shoot enemies from a distance from the roof: You therefore choose a sight with a high zoom level, high-caliber ammunition and a handle for less recoil.  

The plus menu is therefore a very important element of the game that you should use frequently.

How does the plus menu work? As long as you are alive and not in a vehicle, you can use the plus menu. This is how it works:  

  • PC: Hold down the T button. Change the essay with a left click. You also press 1, 2, 3 or 4 on the keyboard.
  • Playstation: Hold down L1. Changes the attachment with X, square, circle or triangle.
  • Xbox: Hold LB. Change the matching attachment with A, X, B or Y. 
How do I change my selection in the plus menu? You change your weapon attachment selection for each weapon outside of a match in the 'Collection' menu. You can find this at the top of the screen in the main menu of All-Out Warfare.

You can also adjust this selection in a menu in a match. This is only possible at the beginning of every match and before a respawn. You can access this menu in the map screen by selecting your spawn point. This is how it works:

1. Select the category that the weapon you want to customize is in.
  • PC: Left click on the weapon category at the bottom of the screen.
  • Playstation: Press Square, then move the selection to move to the weapon category. Then press X.
  • Xbox: Press X, then move the selection to the weapons category. Then press A.
2. Select the weapon you want to customize and go to the customization menu. Press for it:
  • PC: Right mouse button on the desired weapon.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the desired weapon. Then press square. 
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the weapon you want. Then press X. 
3. Select the weapon attachment category that you want to adapt here.
  • PC: Left click on the weapon attachment category.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the weapon attachment category. Then press X.
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the weapon attachment category. Then press A.
4. Select a position in the cross where you want to have your new weapon attachment. The position that is closest to the center of the cross is the standard configuration for this attachment category.

5. Activate “Add” if the position is empty, or “Replace” if you want to exchange an essay. 
  • PC: Left mouse button on the desired position in the cross.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the desired position in the cross. Then press X. 
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the desired position in the cross. Then press A. 
6. Equip the desired weapon attachment. To do this, select a new essay from the list at the bottom of the screen.

7. Confirms the selection. 

You have now adjusted the plus menu and can exit the adjustment menu. 

How to modify your weapons in Battlefield Portal

Where do I customize my weapon attachments in the Battlefield Portal? You can also equip and remove weapon attachments in the Battlefield Portal. The method for doing this, however, is not obvious or intuitive. 

Unlike in the main game, the so-called plus menu is not available in the Battlefield Portal. Instead of being able to adjust the weapons in the middle of the game, as in All-Out Warfare, you have to do that in a different menu in the Battlefield Portal. 

The Customization menu in Battlefield Portal is available at the beginning of every match and before every respawn. In this menu you can also choose your class, weapons and equipment. This corresponds to the method from the old Battlefield parts.

How do I customize my weapon attachments in the Battlefield Portal? In order to be able to adjust your weapon attachments in the Battlefield Portal, you have to be in the map view. You can see these at the beginning of the match and before each respawn. To customize your weapon attachments, you have to follow the steps below:

1. Select the category that the weapon you want to customize is in.
  • PC: Left click on the weapon category at the bottom of the screen.
  • Playstation: Press Square, then move the selection to move to the weapon category. Then press X.
  • Xbox: Press X, then move the selection to the weapons category. Then press A.
2. Select the weapon you want to customize and go to the customization menu. Press for it:

  • PC: Right mouse button on the desired weapon.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the desired weapon. Then press square. 
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the weapon you want. Then press X. 
3. Select the weapon attachment category that you want to adapt here.

  • PC: Left click on the weapon attachment category.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the weapon attachment category. Then press X.
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the weapon attachment category. Then press A.
4. Activated “Edit position.” 

  • PC: Right mouse button on the desired weapon attachment.
  • Playstation: Moves the selection to the desired weapon attachment. Then press square. 
  • Xbox: Moves the selection to the weapon attachment you want. Then press X. 
5. Move the weapon attachment you want to equip to the first position in the cross (the position closest to the center of the cross).

6. Confirms the selection. 

You have now equipped the weapon attachment and can exit the customization menu. 

Unfortunately, this cumbersome method is currently the only way to customize your weapons in the Battlefield Portal. Should that change in the future, we'll update this article.
