    2 sodimm slots but can only use one stick of ram

    The Anti-Cheat System Is Broken in Battlefield V

    These days there are mods to make games like this run in extremely low graphics mode, basically it makes the game look like Fortnite on a phone. That lets you see through things because those things aren't even there with the hack on.

    The Anti-Cheat System Is Broken in Battlefield V

    I didn't get this game because EA are pushing rapid release schedules now. That means EA is going to abandon the game and not provide fixes. Activision does the same thing with COD. They rush to patch stuff right after launch then a short time later it's abandoned.
