Prominent leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson has leaked a ton of new information surrounding Battlefield 2021, including the dynamic map system and its SBMM.
Battlefield 2021’s reveal is expected soon, and more and more information is being leaked about the latest title. We’ve heard that the ‘crash landing’ feature cut from Battlefield V may return, the game might launch on Xbox Game Pass, and might not feature a campaign.
The majority of these leaks have come from industry insider Tom Henderson, aka LongSensation. In a live stream on April 29, Henderson encouraged viewers to ask him questions relating to Battlefield 6 and answered their burning questions to the best of his knowledge.
Here is some of the most exciting and interesting leaked information from Tom Henderson’s live stream. As a note, no official channels have confirmed this information, so it’s possible it could change ahead of the game’s launch.
Battlefield 6’s reveal trailer
Although Tom Henderson has gone into great detail around Battlefield’s reveal, he said that the trailer he has seen might not be the reveal trailer that’s expected soon.
He described how the trailer’s graphics “look like a movie,” and that Battlefield 6 might be the best-looking game ever.

He believes the trailer does a good job of revealing the game, where we’ll see “the setting, the soldiers, the good graphics, the feature of the game, vehicles, guns, etc.” But, he warns that it might leave more questions than answers, such as how the storm featured in the trailer will work in-game.
Also, rather than something like Battlefield 1’s Seven Nation Army remix, the trailer Henderson reports he has seen will have its own music, moving into Battlefield 2021’s own theme at the end of the trailer.
Battlefield 6’s Levolution
Levolution was introduced in Battlefield 4, where large-scale events would occur midway through the game, changing the map. Henderson believes that Levolution will return in Battlefield 2021, but it won’t be a “gimmick,” and will be “more like a part of the core game.”
The dynamic weather system which has been leaked is believed to be a part of this Levolution. Natural disasters such as storms will occur mid-game which will alter the maps. Henderson also mentioned that maps will have a day and night cycle as well as dynamic weather.
Battlefield 6’s gameplay
As for gameplay, Henderson gave a few details on how we can expect the game to play. Call of Duty, especially Modern Warfare, has been praised for its fluid movement system. Henderson said that he’s always felt Battlefield’s movement has been clunky compared to CoD, but Battlefield 6’s movement will be more fluid.
Character models will look more futuristic than Battlefield 4, for example, with “face masks” and “Juggernaut suits” being common.

Battlefield V returned to four-man squads, much to the community’s disappointment. As far as Henderson is aware, four-man squads are expected to return in Battlefield 6. Also, the game’s time to kill is likely to be similar to Battlefield V’s.
Henderson is extremely confident that Battlefield 6 will be a successful game, and will even bring over many CoD players. He thinks that because CoD 2021 might be across both generations of consoles and Battlefield won’t, a free battle royale mode will be there to keep Battlefield’s player count up.
Battlefield’s battle royale
Although nothing has been confirmed about Battlefield releasing a battle royale game, Henderson said that everything he’s heard points towards the game featuring one.
Henderson also said that he doesn’t know the release date for Battlefield’s battle royale, but expects it to release around midway through next year as it’s unlikely that the Battlefield battle royale will arrive at launch. As for details such as lobby size, “it’s impossible to know at the moment.”
Henderson recently drew some images from the trailer he claims to have seen, and said in the live stream that he plans on doing some more drawings in the future.
Rather than drawing the trailer again, he said that he wants to do “something a little bit different, probably on battle royale.” So perhaps we’ll get a taste of Battlefield’s battle royale soon.
Battlefield 2021’s SBMM
Skill-based matchmaking has been a contentious issue in recent Call of Duty games. The better you play, the harder your lobbies will be, and much of the CoD community are frustrated with this level of SBMM.
Henderson said that we can expect a team-based skill-based matchmaking, similar to Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V. Henderson explained that, “You get into the server first, and then the game will decide which team you’ll end up in based on the teams and enemy’s K/D.”
If one team has an average kill to death ratio of 0.9 and the other 0.8, a 2.0 K/D player will be assigned to the lower K/D team for balance.
If this is true, expect players of all skill in your matches of Battlefield 2021, making it a much more casual experience.
Like all leaks, we should take this information with a grain of salt; Tom Henderson’s information could be out of date or simply incorrect. Until details are confirmed by official channels, Battlefield 2021 is still very much a mystery.

New Battlefield 2021 leak reveals upcoming trailer audio
Leaked audio from Battlefield 2021’s trailer, which has revealed the background music, has surfaced online and is believed to be genuine.
The music and audio from Battlefield 2021’s trailer have reportedly surfaced online, with prominent industry insider Tom Henderson confirming the leak to be genuine.
It’s likely that almost every Battlefield player remembers Battlefield 1’s trailer for its awesome remix of The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army.’ Battlefield V’s trailer’s lack of music was somewhat of a disappointment, so players have been anxiously waiting to see what DICE has cooked up for Battlefield 2021’s trailer.
A ton of information has been leaked surrounding the title, such as its title, setting, and that it’s likely going to be a Game Pass launch title. A new leak has reportedly revealed the trailer’s music and audio, and leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson has confirmed this is from the trailer he has seen.
In this 30-second audio clip, we can hear the sound of machine-gun bullets being sprayed, a jet flying overhead, and a soldier shouting “pull back” before metallic creaking that sounds like a large structure coming down. Over the sound of the battle, we can hear a cinematic track racking up the tension.
In his discord server, Tom Henderson confirmed that this audio is from the trailer he heard. However, although Tom confirmed he believes the leak is genuine, he explained why he’s “disappointed” it leaked.
Images from the trailer were recently posted online, but they were from the “first pass,” and “not intended to be released to the public.” Henderson has said that the audio is also from this first pass, so “everyone needs to calm down” as the trailer’s audio will likely be vastly better.
Through the music app Shazam, players have figured out that the song from the leaked audio is ‘Run Baby Run‘ by 2WEI featuring Ali Christenhusz. Henderson previously stated that the trailer has its own theme but has admitted he was mistaken as he’d never heard the track before, but it is indeed this song he heard.
In a recent live stream, Henderson said that by the end of the trailer, the music will shift to the Battlefield theme. He also said that it “looks like a movie,” but may also provide more questions than answers.
Along with the confirmation that Battlefield 2021 would be next-gen only, EA said that the trailer would be coming “soon.” The trailer was expected to release in early May, so we must only be days away from its official reveal.

Battlefield 6 leak gives possible first-look at Juggernaut soldier
A recent leak from Tom Henderson has possibly given the community a first look at a soldier using a Juggernaut like suit in Battlefield 6.
There have been a significant amount of leaks regarding what players can expect to see in Battlefield 6, with one of the more recent ones from Tom Henderson giving players a look at Juggernaut soldier that will likely be a force to be reckoned with in Battlefield 6.
Excitement can be found all around the Battlefield community thanks to the official reveal for the newest entry in the high-profile franchise taking place soon, as players have been itching to see what the new game will offer.
One way that players have been able to satisfy their itch for any news regarding Battlefield 6 has come by way of Tom Henderson, who has recently provided various Battlefield 6 leaks regarding things like the reveal trailer, robot combat dogs, skill-based matchmaking, and more.
May 2, 2021, saw Henderson provide one of his newest leaks that have possibly given players their first glimpse at a Juggernaut-like soldier that will be in Battlefield 6.
Taking to his Twitter account, Tom Henderson uploaded an image of a drawing he made of what he states is a soldier with an “armoured helmet with a Juggernaut-type suit” that he has seen from footage of Battlefield 6.
The drawing shows off the Juggernaut soldier wearing the helmet with a helicopter flying in the background.
Henderson uploaded a second image of this Juggernaut soldier watching an Osprey aerial vehicle on fire, most likely crash landing.
Now, no official word from Dice has been made regarding this Juggernaut-like soldier in Battlefield 6, so as with all leaks, this should be taken with a grain of salt until officially confirmed.
However, Henderson has provided plenty of accurate leaks in the past, so it would not be surprising whatsoever to see these kinds of characters be in Battlefield 6 when it officially launches in 2021.

New Battlefield 6 leaks give first look at combat robot dogs
Another leak from Tom Henderson has given further details on EA’s new Battlefield game with some interesting combat, robot dogs.
Battlefield 2021 leaks are coming thick and fast with Tom Henderson delivering another piece of information about DICE’s new war shooter. Drawings depicting leaked Battlefield news appear to show off some dangerous-looking robot dogs.
Fresh off of the heels of the first Battlefield 6 leaked images, we now have extra details on what to expect during a game of the anticipated shooter.
Renowned leaker Tom Henderson has come through recently with a series of leaks regarding the game, with him revealing a whole host of info on the game’s reveal trailer, gameplay, SBMM, and also hinting that the cut crash landing feature from Battlefield V will debut.
He’s also been hand-drawing leaks and details and showing them to Twitter, with his newest creation hinting that weaponized robot dogs are coming to Battlefield 6.
With Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V both taking on a world war setting, it’s time for large-scale warfare to return to the present day.
Games like Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 were huge successes for EA, and they are aiming to take what they’ve learned from these games and make the best Battlefield yet.
Tom Henderson’s newest art suggests that combat-orientated robot dogs will be an option in the new Battlefield game, much to some dismay.
Many comments in response to the Tweet complained that Battlefield is trying to go too far into the future and make the game farfetched.
The reality is that these robot dogs actually already exist in the world.
The thought of these running around a map providing reconnaissance and maybe even attacking enemies is a fun proposition indeed.
With this being the first Battlefield game in three years, if it’s released this year, you can imagine that EA and DICE are trying to go all-out to reclaim some of the market they have lost to Call of Duty – in particular Warzone passing 100 million players recently.
