For the update, there have been several changes to XP and earning XP. Firstly, on 12 November 2021 at 2:30 AM CEST Battlefield announced via Twitter that “XP awards on custom Battlefield Portal Servers are temporarily disabled.” 

No specific reason for this change has been given, however, it is likely due to the “XP farming” that has been happening, especially on bot servers.

In the same tweet, Battlefield announced that “XP awards for Solo/Co-Op Experiences have been lowered in All-Out Warfare,” and that “XP awards in All-Out Warfare MP are unaffected”.

Battlefield has also announced a series of members-only rewards for EA Play members that will become available in a staggered sequence starting on the official launch day, Friday 19 November 2021.

The first reward is a ‘Fatal Friend’ melee takedown weapon and becomes available on the 19th of November. The second is an ‘Icebreaker’ vehicle skin and will become available in December.

Thirdly, there is the “Cap’em” weapon charm that will become available in January 2022. Then there is the ‘Russian Engineering’ SVK weapon skin coming in February 2022. Thereafter there will be more monthly rewards, the details of which are still to be announced.
