Battlefield is known for its crazy maps that have certainly become more and more comprehensive as time has gone on. With the introduction of ‘levelution’ back in Battlefield 4, the in-match map changes have only got bigger and better. In Battlefield 2042, this is no different, with dynamic map changes happening as players fight it out on the vast vistas.
One such ‘levelution’ element in Battlefield 2042 comes in the Orbital map in which a rocket can be launched and potentially destroyed if you have enough firepower. This is exactly what we’re going to go over here. Below, we’ll go through what needs to occur for the rocket to launch and what you’ll need to destroy it.
How to launch the rocket in Battlefield 2042
So, how do you get that rocket to launch in Battlefield 2042’s Orbital map? Well, you’d be surprised to know that it is, in fact, time-based and there’s nothing a player can do to influence the launch.
While there’s nothing you can do to get the rocket launch going. There is a specific indicator as to when it is happening. If you watch the rocket closely, you should be able to see the rocket’s support arms slowly come down, preparing it for take off. At this point, if you want to make that an unsuccessful launch and destroy it, read on.

If you’re looking to destroy the Orbital rocket, you’ll have to wait until it’s preparing to take off. Any damage that you’re trying to deal to the aircraft will be simply ineffective until this point. However, once the initiation sequence has started, this is when you need to let all hell break loose as you only have 6 minutes to get the job done.
If you want to successfully destroy the rocket, you’re going to need more than a few guns. You’ll need tanks, projectiles, helicopters, and more to dispatch it and even if you have all of this, you need to coordinate your attack to ensure you succeed.
