Best Gadget in Battlefield 2042

Insertion Beacon

Imagine you’ve managed to reach a spectacular point on the map that allows you to kill dozens of enemies with your sniper. Now, if you die for any reason, it would be difficult to get yourself to the same point once again, especially when it’s a sector controlled by enemy forces.

Insertion beacon could easily cut all the trouble for you and your squadmates. Just put it somewhere near yourself – it’s better to be hidden from plain sight – and once you are killed, you can spawn on the same location using the Insertion Beacon.

Aside from snipers, it’s still a great gadget for rushers as well. You can place it somewhere tricky inside the enemy sector and once you and your whole squad are redeployed from the same beacon, you can tear the enemy apart from the inside, where they do not expect at all.

Insertion Beacon is not available at the beginning, and you will need to make some progress and level up to unlock it.

While our choice here is Insertion Beacon, the other gadgets have their own benefits for you and your team. For example, C5 Explosive could be a great match for Casper’s drone. Or you can use the Recoilless M5 to destroy almost any enemy vehicle.

Battlefield 2042 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
