Mp1st, spotted the unusual interaction that took place on Twitter earlier this week. Twitter user @ THE_KOLIBRI1 tweeted a video of Battlefield running on a one inch screen.

If you complete the challenge in BFV using this screen, I give you a PC / win digital copy of BF2042. ð¤ð¬ð

The challenge that strand refers to is a very specific Easter Egg that requires a lot of players to complete. The challenge requires players to complete a number of steps, including spelling a word in Morse code, equipping specific items and weapons, and chasing a gnome.
Players are rewarded with the Eidolon skin at the end of the quest, although a Twitter user can also claim the additional reward of a free copy of Battlefield 2042 when it launched later this year.
This is not the first time that DICE has adopted the Battlefield community. Battlefield 2042The first major reveal trailer included a return to RendeZook, a player who managed to RPG another throw in the air, before returning to his own jet.
