Players have discovered a number of quirks in the profanity filter found in the Battlefield V beta. ‘Titanfall’, ‘DLC’, ‘eat’, ‘lag’ and ‘defend’ are all blocked from use, as is ‘nazi’, which can be used as an insult but the the game is set in WW2 and you’re fighting, uh, nazis.
‘White man’, but not ‘black man’ is censored, with ‘jews’ and ‘nuts’ also on the banned list, but some naughty words are allowed.
EA have posted a response on the BFV forums
Hello Battlefield V Open Beta players!
We’re really excited to have you join us for the Battlefield V Open Beta, and we hope you’re enjoying the Beta and the new features.
One of the new features we’re working on is a profanity filter in-game to reduce toxicity.
That being said, we have heard some complaints that the filter is blocking words that aren’t profanity or shouldn’t be blocked, like “DLC”, etc. and isn’t blocking some words that should be (obviously, I will not be providing examples of these.)
Please note: This is a work-in-progress and we will be taking this feedback to tweak the sensitivity of the filter and improve its usage without censoring relevant conversation.
Healthy discussion is what drives improvement in our games, and we’d never want to impede that.
Thanks for bringing your concerns to us regarding the current iteration of the profanity filter and we’ll keep working on it.

Just for lols shall we start using ‘Titanfall’ as a swear word to really confuse EA? You’re a massive Titanfall you are.
And so’s yer mum.
