The Radio appears in Battlefield 2042, in various vehicles. Standalone radios may also appear in buildings. Vehicle drivers may choose from various music stations, along with a selection of talk radio stations (a first for the series).

As Battlefield 2042 does not feature a traditional singleplayer campaign, some of the world-building is achieved through the talk radio topics.
