Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Patch Notes - My Thoughts

Check out some of my thoughts on the Battlefield 4 Naval Strike patch notes that we recently received from DICE. Check out the full list of patch notes here.

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike - Patch Notes

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Patch Notes

GENERAL FIXES
-General stability improvements
-Fix for a crash that could occur when players were customizing vehicles.
-Fix for an issue in the Rush game mode where end-of-round screen would always indicate that there were 60 minutes left of the game.
-Fix for an issue where the splash damage for IFV shells, Helicopter rockets, and Mortar rounds was unable to destroy deployed equipment.
-Fix for an issue that could cause the quad bike to explode when it hit indestructible objects.
-Fix for an issue that would cause sniper rifles to display too much bloom when aiming in snowy conditions, especially the outside areas of Operation Locker.
-Fix for an issue where the ECM would sometimes fail to jam incoming missiles.
-Shortened the take-off distances for jets to match the length of the runways in Second Assault maps.
-Fix for going above ceiling exploits in Operation Metro.
-Fix for a new MAV riding exploit.
-Fix for kill camera jittering/strobing sometimes if colliding with other world objects or terrain.
-Fix for soldiers getting catapulted when walking on steep surfaces

“NETCODE”
-Fix for an issue where the kill camera would display the incorrect killer.
-Fix for an issue where the kill card won’t show up when playing on servers which have the kill camera turned off.
-Fixed an issue where other soldiers would appear to fire in the wrong direction when turning quickly.
-Fix for weapons firing twice, or not at all in some instances.
-Fix for an issue where explosions didn’t do any damage to infantry and vehicles that were outside of the combat area.
-Fix for an issue where late-joining players wouldn’t correctly experience Levolution events on Paracel Storm and Flood Zone.
-Fix for an issue that could cause packet loss.

PROGRESSION
-Added Gold Battlepacks as rewards for Class Service Stars, allowing players that have reached the max Rank to continue earning new Battlepacks.

WEAPONS / GADGET TWEAKS
-Increased the damage of the normal buckshot against targets with Body Armor.
-Reduced the vertical recoil of the M4 and M16A4 to give these burst fire weapons a tighter burst accuracy in their mid- to long range role.
-Reduced the side-to-side and first shot recoil of the G36C. This weapon now has the lowest side-to-side recoil of the carbines, giving it a clear controllable low rate of fire role, especially when compared to the AK5C, Type-95B-1 and the AKU-12.
-Tweaked the detonation time of the 40mm LVG so it bounces less before going off. The maximum damage has however been reduced to 80 like the RGO.
-Reduced the number of how many 40mm HE and LVG rounds players can carry, from 4 to 3.
-Increased the time it takes to get new 40mm round from ammo boxes. The time is longer for HE and LVG grenades and shorter for utility grenades like SMK and FLASH.

GRENADE TWEAKS
-Increased the time it takes to get new RGO IMPACT, V40 MINI, M84 FLASHBANG and M18 SMOKE grenades from ammo boxes. Since the player now carries more of these grenades, the resupply delay needed to be longer to prevent grenade spamming.

VEHICLE TWEAKS
-Significantly improved the suppression from mounted vehicle weapons, including miniguns, HMGs, LMGs, and all shells types for all armored vehicles.

AIRCRAFT TWEAKS
-Further reduced the repair rate for the Scout Helicopters and the Transport Helicopters.
-Significantly increased the damage of Transport Helicopter miniguns.
-Changed the flight ceilings on Gulf of Oman, Caspian Border and Operation Firestorm to better match the height of the structures in those levels.
-Adjusted the damage of the 25mm and 30mm cannons for both Stealth Jets and Mobile AA to be equal in Damage Per Second to the 20mm default weapons. These weapons were clearly poorer choices in all circumstances, and their different rates of fire are intended to be the player's choice factor for these weapon systems.
-Increased the splash damage and the range at which the JDAM bombs can achieve max splash damage. The JDAM's power was not properly balanced with its difficulty to use. The JDAM remains a primarily anti-vehicle weapon, though this change will increase the effectiveness against all targets.
-Increased the accuracy and direct hit damage of the AC130 40mm cannons. 40mm cannons can now be used to fire pinpoint shots in 2-3 round bursts, enabling them to provide accurate fire on infantry and vehicle targets. Their velocity has also been marginally increased to aid their accuracy.
-Increased the splash damage and range of the AC130 25mm cannons. These cannons now do approximately 50% more damage, in a slightly increased area of impact. The increased damage as well as increased suppression effects will allow the 25mm cannon to fill its role as an area of effect weapon against infantry.

Titanfall Will Soon Support 4K On PC!


According to Nvidia content and technology manager Ashu Rege, Respawn Entertainment will soon release updates for the PC version of Titanfall to support 4K displays and SLI multi-GPU Technology for a "fantastic high-end PC experience."

With these updates Titanfall fans playing on PC will experience enhanced PhysX for more realistic clothing a destruction effects, as well as VisualFX for more realistic hair, fire, and water simulation.  They will also be adding Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TXAA) that should help reduce screen tearing as well as Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion+ (HBAO+) for more realistic shadowing effects.

Just recently Respawn Entertainment stated that the Xbox One version will also be receiving an upcoming patch that will help improve performance.

Also, if you haven't already heard . . .EA has already secured the rights for Titanfall 2, and we can most likely expect it to be coming to Playstation fans as well.  Not only that, but there are talks of releasing the Titanfall IP to Playstation here shortly.

Titanfall Weapon Stats Discovered in PC Game Files

Recently a Denkirson forum user who goes by Dissentia put together a chart of some Titanfall weapon stats that he discovered in the Titanfall PC game files.  The stats include weapon damage, reload times, fire rates, magazine capacities, and more.  The stats are most likely pretty accurate since they are directly from the game files, but I'm sure we'll get some more in-depth stat breakdowns later on from sites like Symthic.com which will break down stats like bullet velocity and damage drop off over longer ranges. However, this Titanfall weapon stats chart should give you a better idea of how each weapon in Titanfall performs statistically.

Click on the image to enlarge


You can also gather information, like which weapon has the fastest time-to-kill against an enemy Titan during a rodeo, which seems  to go to the Spitfire LMG.  The slowest time-to-kill appears to go to the Kraber-AP Sniper.  Obviously the time-to-kill against pilots will differ as the Kraber-AP Sniper can technically drop an enemy pilot in one shot. 

What do you guys think about these stats?  Will it effect which weapons you carry onto the battlefield?

Battlefield 4: Two-Handed Ballistic Shield Coming With Dragon's Teeth DLC

DICE has just announced that they will be implementing a Two-Handed Ballistic Shield in the Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth DLC.  No worries though . . .from DICE's description, it does not sound like a Call of Duty riot shield that will enable players to run around the map, shield bashing their opponents.  DICE is saying that the shield will require two hands to use, and that it will not work alongside your weapons.  So basically it sounds like it will just be moveable piece of cover.

A while back DICE was considering implementing a shield in Battlefield 4 that you could use alongside your weapons.  They were considering giving the shield a small opening  that you could literally place your weapon through and be fully protected from the front.  For several reasons they came to the conclusion that the Two-Handed Ballistic Shield would be the best implementation of a shield in the game, and that it would encourage some more tactical, team oriented game play.

What do you guys think about the Two-Handed Ballistic Shield coming to Battlefield 4 with the Dragon's Teeth DLC?  What other weapons, equipment, and gadgets would you like to see in Battlefield 4 or future Battlefield games?

Check out the video below where I talk about the Two-Handed Ballistic Shield and give my thoughts on it.  Also, I just hit 5K Subscribers on YouTube and have a special giveaway that anyone has a chance to win!
