Previously players had to back off into the main menu in order to modify their weapon attachments, however, the new plus feature has made the task quite easy. With just a push of a button, the whole layout of attachments appears on the screen, allowing you to quickly change them up before getting blown to bits by a grenade.

If you’re rocking the default controls for the game, you should be able to open up the plus menu using the T key on your keyboard. If you’re not comfortable with the current key bind, you can always change it by going into the settings menu. You can also set up specific key binds for cycling through the plus menu.

Weapon Attachments on Xbox

If you’re playing Battlefield 2042 on an Xbox One or X|S, you need to hold down the LB button and use either the D-pad or the ABXY buttons to cycle through the attachments. Releasing LB will automatically equip the attachment you had selected. If you’re using the ABXY buttons, keep in mind that they work in the same way as D-pad, meaning that Y points to up and A points down.
