Battlefield 2042‘s Plus system gives you the ability to switch weapon attachments while in the middle of a game. Rather than having to wait for your next respawn, you can quickly adjust your scope, barrel mount, and other settings as needed.

Do you see an enemy on the horizon? Quickly clip a rifle scope to your weapon and you’re ready for long-range combat. Want to sneak through a building undetected? Put on a muffler with just a few pushes of a button. The system is surprisingly flexible and allows you to adapt your gear to whatever situation you find yourself in.

During a match, press the Plus System button for your specific platform (LB on xbox, L1 on playstation, t on PC) to open the menu. The Plus system is split into four arms – hence the name – and depending on the weapon you’re carrying, you’ll have a variety of different attachments to choose from.

On the console, you can simply use the D-Pad to mark which attachment you want to add to your weapon. Edition LB or L1and the game will automatically add the selected attachment. On PC, you need to left click on your selection. There’s no limit to how many times you can use the Plus system, so don’t be afraid to dive into the menu and customize your gear as needed.

How do I unlock more content for the Plus system?

Although your options are limited at the start of Battlefield 2042, the Plus system will gradually collect more attachments as you level up. These are usually tied to your Mastery level on each specific weapon – that is, the more kills you get, the more attachments you unlock.

You can view all currently unlocked Plus System attachments — and change your Plus System layout — by following these simple steps:

  • Go to the Main menu.
  • Select the Collection tab at the top of the screen.
  • Navigate to the weapons submenu.
  • Select the weapon you want to view/change.

This will bring up a menu with all the gear you’ve unlocked for your specific weapon. It also gives you the chance to add any piece of gear to the Plus system – making it easy to optimize your build before starting a match.

Keep in mind that there are more unlockable attachments than slots in the Plus system, so you’ll want to make sure you only bring your favorite gear into battle. These can be changed at the end of each battle, but while you’re in the game you can only access those attachments you’ve placed in the Plus system.
