While DICE addressed a load of issues in Battlefield 2042 in today’s rollout of patch 4.0, there’s one thing the devs have failed to address, and that’s the Battlefield 2042 C5 drone “issue” that players have encountered for quite some time. Thankfully, DICE has confirmed that this is being reviewed by the devs, which means a change should be incoming.
This was confirmed by Battlefield Community Manager Straatford87 over on the EA Answers forums:

Finally, Straatford87 also explained the reasoning behind the XP changes that came with patch 4.0:
We’ve moved XP gains around to make it more consistent in how it is rewarded to you as opposed to focusing on completing the defend/capture event itself. This will help balance out overall XP rewards.
This also means it should feel less punishing if you die just before a Capture event has taken place and you miss out on a big chunk of XP.
Instead, you are now rewarded with more XP for participating in the defensive/offensive goal by performing Support actions to your team (Healing, Resupplying, Repairing and destroying Equipment or Disrupting via EMP).
Coupled with Ribbons now being easier to get, you should see higher overall XP gains with this change. Once you’ve been able to play and
While it didn’t fix everything wrong with BF2042, patch 4.0 is a step in the right direction. Let’s hope that DICE continues this momentum and releases more significant patches in the future.
