While it might be hard for some to believe, Battlefield 2042 has been out for nearly 2 months now. Over that time, many players have checked out the game. Unfortunately, reception to the latest installment in the Battlefield series has been mixed at best, with many people citing numerous bugs impacting performance. Nevertheless, despite these glitches that have affected the game since its release, fans have continued to post some incredible highlights made possible only on the maps found in Battlefield 2042.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as Est0niaVisit shared an impressive video of them flying a jet during a recent match of Battlefield 2042. Taking place on the Manifest map, the highlight shared by the Reddit user began with them pursuing a hostile aircraft. The player quickly showed off their aerial prowess by eliminating the fleeing enemy with several precise shots. After a few more seconds of maneuvering, they then managed to pick up another kill on a ground target. However, what was about to happen next made the video truly incredible.
As Est0niaVisit continued to fly above the battle-engulfed map, a helicopter became visible in the distance. Jumping into action, the Reddit user flipped their jet upside down and advanced towards the chopper. In an unexpected move, they then exited the cockpit and stood on the underbelly of the aircraft. As the helicopter came closer, the player ran to the tip of the jet and pulled out a rocket launcher. Without missing a beat, they fired one missile directly at the enemy aircraft. The rocket exploded on contact as the player jumped back into their cockpit and flew away after pulling off the unbelievable feat.
This impressive play made by Est0niaVisit while piloting the jet made an impression on numerous members of the Battlefield 2042 community on Reddit. With over 1,400 upvotes in less than a day, many were caught off guard by the quick thinking of the player. In addition, some gamers were excited to attempt to replicate this stunt in-game. “I’m going to have to remember that trick! Nice!” one person commented. Others said that these were the types of clips that made Battlefield 2042 memorable.
This is just one of many highlights captured by players in Battlefield 2042 over the past couple of weeks. Besides this jet stunt, another player recently managed to get C4 kills while on a plane wing. Videos like these suggest that, while the game has doubtlessly had its flaws, some gamers continue to have fun jumping into online matches. It will be interesting to see what other amazing plays are captured by the community in the coming days.
