Battlefield 4 PC Patch Gets Released

Developer DICE has released the Battlefield 4 PC patch, which includes the infamous sound loop crash, among other fixes.


The following are the full PC patch notes, directly from the BattleLog:

  • Fix for a crash that would cause the game to stall, resulting in a sound loop. This should eliminate most of the problems relating to this
  • Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for “roadkilling” opponents
  • Fix for an issue where 4x the damage from a vehicle’s minigun would be applied to the chest when a player had the Defense specialization equipped
  • Fix for player tags not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fix for graphical flickering appearing on terrain
  • Fixed the instance where players suddenly would transition into Spectator Mode while playing the Defuse game mode
  • Fix for a Defuse bug where none of the teams would win a round by letting the timer run out. -Fix for players getting stuck in the revive screen after being killed
  • Fix for players getting stuck in the kill camera after being revived
  • Fix for the game mode specific ribbons being counted twice in the multiplayer progression
  • Made NVidia 331.82 or later driver versions mandatory for all players
  • Disabled DirectX 11.1 on NVidia cards that have outdated drivers
  • Fixed driver version not being properly detected on NVidia Optimus systems
  • Fixed a minor crash that could occur when bringing up the scoreboard
  • Fixed one of the issues related to the so-called “Netcode” (see below for details)

“Netcode” improvement:

We’ve addressed the so called “Kill trading”. This refers to when two players fire at each other and, seemingly, both die at the same time. The time window where a bullet could cause damage from an already dead player is now calculated as intended, decreasing the timeframe when players with high latency could get a kill, even though they should be dead according to the server.
