Battlefield 2042 Hazard zone is an intense, high-stakes take on the shooter’s large-scale warfare. With limited respawns, Data Drives to recover, and a heavy emphasis on strategy, it’s a far cry from the carnage of All-Out Warfare. In Hazard Zone, there are 15 Tactical Upgrades – which are all unique to the mode – that will help you get a leg up on your opponents, thanks to the significant buffs and boosts that they offer.
Some of these Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone Tactical Upgrades are available for free, however, the majority of them are purchased with Dark Market Credits which are earned when you extract Data Drives from the map in Hazard Zone. You can use these Dark Matter Credits at the start of a match to buy these Tactical Upgrades, as well as other pieces of gear like weapons and gadgets.
