Hold down the appropriate button/key for your preferred platform (see below) to see what attachments are available on your current weapon.

For PC: Hold down the “T” key, left click to select, then release the “T” key to equip
For Xbox press and hold LB, use the directional buttons to select, then release LB to equip.

Battlefield 2042 How to Call-In a Vehicle:
On PC press the “B” button to bring up the call-in tablet. Choose from troop movers to combat vehicles and use the left mouse button to select the right choice for your particular situation. Once you’ve decided, move your mouse again to choose the location for delivery. Then one more click and you’re all set.
For Xbox press and hold the “RB” button and follow the steps above.
For PlayStation press and hold the “R1” button and follow the steps above.
Battlefield 2042 How to Heal & Revive:
Medic crates are boxes you can use to help heal your teammates. Throw them on the ground and when an injured teammate moves close they gain hp over a short duration. Please be aware that there is a cooldown after healing takes place so you won’t be able to use another medic crate immediately. Same note here regarding avoiding further damage during the healing period.
Finally, the Specialist Maria Falck has a syrette pistol allowing her to heal herself. She can also shoot friendly targets to heal them at range. If she misses the target a syringe will land on the ground which can be used by either friend or foe and receive the healing effect. However, if the syrette hits an enemy target directly they’ll take damage.
The Battlefield 2042 beta begins next week, and you can check the full schedule here.
