Portal mode from Battlefield 2042 has already been used to create a Call of Duty: Warzone style Battle Royale mode in the shooter. While offering some interesting workarounds, the bespoke “Warfield 100” features a pre-match lobby, random loot, closing circle, and more.
As reported by MP1ST, a Reddit user going through the handle u / chbmg recently revealed that they have created their own Battle Royale in the new portal builder tools of 2042. “After spending more hours in the rule editor than I want to l ‘Admit, I’m happy to announce the creation of a full Battle Royale experience for Battlefield Portal, “the user revealed on Reddit.
In the post, chbmg explains a number of features found in the mode – many of which are similar to other modern Battle Royales such as Call of Duty Warzone. While the user notes that Warfield 100’s functionality may change over time as a result of tweaks and bug fixes, there is still a lot to work on in the mode’s current format.
When entering a game of Warfield 100, players appear in a pre-lobby area. Equipped with a random loadout, players can use this time to practice on target while they wait for the lobby to fill up. Players are then eliminated and dropped directly into the Warfield.
While the game mode hasn’t quite managed to implement a battle bus or dropship to get you into the action, players entering the actual game arrive by parachute and are equipped with a handgun. boot as well as some grenades.

This is where things start to get interesting. As chbmg explains in their post, the portal editor does not allow the placement of items such as loot on the ground for players to collect and replace their pistols. In a nifty workaround, Reddit’s user play mode lets players know when they are near a weapon via an on-screen message that displays the words “on the loot.” From there, players must repeatedly crouch three times, after which the Gods of Warfield will replace their currently held weapon with nearby objects.
Other makeshift workarounds include the game’s shrinking circle, which, instead of containing deadly gas or other substances, is made up of “a group of ‘hacky’ AI players” who form a outer circle and move closer to a smaller circle every two minutes. Venturing outside of the limits set by the AI ââplayer circle, which is visibly highlighted in red during mode to avoid confusion, causes players to take damage and can cause death.
Similar to Warzone, dying in Warfield 100 sends you to a prison where you can fight for a chance to escape. Where Warzone (usually) only grants you one chance in the Gulag, Warfield 100 is slightly more forgiving. According to the Reddit post, every time a player dies in the game, they must do an additional kill in the prison area in order to be able to join the Warfield. This elimination limit is, however, reached if a player needs more than four eliminations to leave the prison – in which case they are finished and out of play.
After a positive reception from those on the Battlefield subreddit, chbmg thanked fans for their kind words. “Wow, I wasn’t expecting a big reception since I’m a newbie on Reddit. Thanks so much for the rewards and kind words,” they said before noting that the mode still needs a fair amount. of work.
