In Battlefield 2042, you will be able to take control of a tank. If you want to take control of a tank within the game, like most vehicles you will have to go through the HQ. The HQ is only accessible when you spawn on the map.
To get a tank, do the following:
On the respawn menu, click on HQ
Go to the vehicle icon that appears under the HQ icon
Select the tank
There you go, normally, you will spawn in the game controlling a tank.
It should be noted that it is possible that all the tanks are already deployed in the field, so you will have to be patient if you want to take control of the vehicle.
You can control or deploy tank in Battlefield 2042 by pressing the following keys:
Right click + left click on PC
L2 + R2 on PlayStation consoles
LT + RT on Xbox consoles
It could also happen that you are lucky and a tank has been abandoned by a player, if so, approach it and press the following key to take control:
E on PC
Round on PlayStation consoles
X on Xbox consoles
