Battlefield 2042 players roast “goofy” Santa Claus Holiday skin

Hamza Khalid

DICE decided to bring the holiday spirit to Battlefield 2042 by adding a Santa Claus skin to the game, but unimpressed players have been relentlessly roasting it.

Battlefield 2042 has a variety of new content for fans to enjoy, like Portal which lets you create your own game modes, as well as some powerful new weapons like the SVK Marksman Rifle.

The developers have also decided to get players into the holiday spirit by adding a Santa Claus skin. However, Battlefield fans aren’t impressed with this cosmetic and are openly roasting it online.

Reddit user SoyUnGregorio shared an image of the new Santa Claus skin in the Battlefield 2042 subreddit, and they were not impressed. “DICE, what are you doing with the game,” they asked.

The skin is called Father Winter, and players can unlock it by completing missions in Week 3 of the pre-season. Many of the commenters shared the Redditor’s opinion and began roasting the cosmetic.

“I knew clown show skins like these were coming,” one player sarcastically replied. “But DICE wasted no time and added them in the very first update. Incredible.” Many users jokingly stated that they can’t believe this is real.

“When people talked about EA/DICE introducing Santa Claus and clown skins to Battlefield I thought we were all just joking around,” commented another player.

A few users did enjoy this new skin. “Yeah I think it’s definitely good they did it,” wrote ozner55. “The game overall just needs a little more content. Even if it’s a goofy Christmas thing, I’m totally fine with that. Having new stuff to unlock is simply positive.”

The Battlefield 2042 launch has been troublesome, and this new cosmetic hasn’t done much to get the community in a better mood when playing the game. There have also been many other problems.

Players have complained about the map design and Shroud explained why weapon bloom is ruining the game. We’ve also seen a bug that makes smoke grenades useless and error messages plaguing fans.
