Battlefield 2042 third-person execution

Apex Legends’ version is known as a “Finisher,” where a downed enemy can be executed. In contrast, in Warzone, players can execute an enemy while they are still up by executing a melee while behind an enemy.

We suspect the feature will work more similarly to Warzone’s executions, mostly because Apex Legends is a battle royale where players can be in a downed state. At the same time, Battlefield 2042 will be a more classic form of a first-person shooter multiplayer.

If it is similar to Warzone, players will be able to initiate the “knife execution” by performing a melee from behind.

Further, as we know, Battlefield will feature cosmetics. Perhaps these executions will vary depending on specialist skins or some other form of cosmetic.

That’s all we know so far about Battlefield 2042’s executions. For more, check out our article on whether or not Battlefield 2042 will be on EA Play.
