DICE Announces Over 100 Changes in Upcoming BF3 Patch
DICE has announced a forthcoming update to Battlefield 3 that should alleviate many of the annoyances that have plagued players in recent months. This update appears to be massive, targeting balance issues throughout a wide range of equipment and vehicles in both damage and gameplay mechanics (such as recoil). As such, many weapon attachment bonuses are changing to be weapon-specific in an attempt to negate potentially overpowered combinations.
DICE has also implemented bug fixes for some of BF3‘s more aggravating exploitables, such as the MAV elevator, the ability to place unlimited mines as an engineer, and C4 persisting through death. Unfortunately, this huge list of tweaks does not seem to include further adjustment to the flashlights, which are still brighter than the sun on a clear day (even despite the attempt to tone them down in the last patch).
By my count, the patch notes posted to Battlelog include well over a hundred fixes and changes (and zh1nt0 notes that the posted list isn’t even complete yet), so you may want to grab a drink before trying to read through all of them. Are there any changes coming in this patch that you’ve been dying for? Let us know in the comments!
