Battlefield 2042: Can you play Solo?

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Battlefield 2042 is a controversial title, all things considered. Classically, it throws Russia against the United States in a near-future depiction of global warfare - however, this factionalism is hidden with Battlefield 2042's Specialist system - and there's no single-player Campaign mode. That doesn't mean you can't play Battlefield 2042 solo, though.

Here's everything we know about how you can do this at the moment.

RIDING SOLO - In Battlefield 2042

At the moment, there's only one way you can play Battlefield 2042 solo - but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

You can actually play Battlefield 2042's major modes - Conquest and Breakthrough - in solo mode against AI opponents. You can still party up with a squad, but this should alleviate any tension you might feel about jumping into online multiplayer and offers a great way to brush up on your sniping skills.

BOT OR NOT - Sometimes it's better to get some practice in

If you want to do this, follow these steps:

  • Launch Battlefield 2042
    • Okay, this one was a little obvious.
  • Open up the "All Out War" sub-menu
    • This one's on the far left of the screen.
  • Then, open up the "Mode Select" screen.
    • You can do this by holding Square (on PlayStation) and X (on Xbox), or by clicking on it in the bottom left on PC.
  • Following this, toggle the top menu from "Multiplayer" to "Solo & Co-Op"
    • This can be done with R1/L1 (on PlayStation) and RB/LB (on Xbox), or by clicking on it at the top of the screen on PC.

After you've done this, you should be able to pick which map you want to play on specifically and what difficulty you want the AI to be. This is a great way to earn some quick Weapon XP and level up fast - but it can get a bit tiresome to grind against AI opponents. So, we only recommend this to get a few scopes unlocked. Then, it's better to jump into Multiplayer properly.
