Battlefield 2042’s Rush game mode arrived with Patch 3.1 a month ago, and fans immediately took a liking to it. Advertised as a limited time mode, Rush features 32 players, two teams of 16 instead of the usual 128 players in All-Out Warfare. The size of the map is also reduced, focusing on specific sections that one of the teams needs to take before the time runs out.
This game mode owes its popularity in large part to this more compact map, as one of the main criticisms from players is the usual size of the map which is too big and too empty. The same goes for the number of players, too large for some. On top of that, Rush’s speed of games allows players to level up their weapons faster, which is a real plus in a game like Battlefield 2042.
Although the game mode was announced as a limited time mode, the developers agreed to extend its lifespan to introduce a 64 player game, which made fans very happy, and gave them a glimmer of hope that Rush would become a permanent game mode.
Despite Rush’s success, Dice ultimately decided to take him out of the game, as they originally planned.. This decision did not go unnoticed in the community: many claimed that developers do not listen to player feedback, and some have even said that removing such a popular game mode is an error that would lead the game to its downfall.
However, it looks like the Rush game mode hasn’t completely disappeared from Battlefield 2042. To access it, you have to go through Portal, an unranked mode where players can set their own rules and therefore create new game modes, or even recreate the modes of old games in the Battlefield series. Interested players can therefore play Rush of Ages, a form of Rush from Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Note that the game modes created through Portal do not bring in or have little experience, so it will be very difficult to level up, unlike the original game mode.
