Is this battery damaged?

I opened my macbook to check, the logic bord has 0,0 issues.

But my issues having was the wifi, airdrop, bluetooth not working.

At a certain point it got stuck while playing 4k videos.

And the screen wasnt working.

Now I opened it and all batteries(which were functioning properly btw and the logic board aswell I assume?(latter i do not know for sure due to the fact I dont know where airdrop, wifi et all are)

Ive added a picture of 1 battery. It seems surface. At first I thought it was some waterdamage because the underplate had some stains. Hope you know any advice.

Well... Yes your battery is not healthy! As it has become swollen! The BMC logic or a bad battery is at the root of this issue.

It doesn't explain your other issues! Be it WiFi or Bluetooth not working (airdrop leverages these) as well as getting stuck while playing 4k videos.

I would install a good thermal monitoring app like TG Pro and to monitor the battery health I would have installed this Gem! CoconutBattery

While you've already disassembled I would just replace the battery at this point MacBook Pro 14" (A2442, A2779, A2918) Battery following this guide MacBook Pro 14" 2021 Battery Replacement
