With over 20 weapons to unlock in Battlefield 2042, there is something for everyone. However, not every weapon is available from the beginning of the game – most of them must be unlocked before they can be used. And that is what this guide is all about! In this guide, we have detailed all there is to know about how to unlock all the weapons in Battlefield 2042.

Battlefield 2042 Weapons

Unlocking weapons (base variants) in Battlefield 2042 is a relatively simple affair. To begin, all that the player needs to do is to progress through the game. As the player earns XP, new weapons will continue to get unlocked. In order to check the ‘Character Level’ needed to unlock a weapon, open up the ‘Collections’ menu. Another thing to keep in mind is that the ‘Character Level’ is the only thing that matters – there are no additional objectives.

While trying to earn XP, it is a good idea to stick to modes that provide a lot of XP with little to no downtime. It is a good idea to avoid Conquest as it can involve a lot of running around the area. Moreover, try to play a Support character in order to rack up points rather quickly.

Hazard Zone Weapons

When it comes to getting weapons in Hazard Zone, all the info. provided above is still relevant with a few additions. Once a weapon is unlocked, the player will also need to purchase the weapon using the DMC i.e., Dark Market Credits. And while unlocking weapons essentially remains the same, the Hazard Zone adds an extra layer.
