According to DICE, a patch is coming for the PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 that will fix a few items, namely the “one-shot kill bug”.
The update is supposed to go live on Dec. 3 and if you happen to be playing online when it gets deployed, there’s a good chance you might get the boot for a few minutes, so keep that in mind.
“This update was scheduled to go live as quickly as possible to fix the so-called “one-shot kill bug”, where bullets were sometimes applying damage multiple times to a character,” said a DICE developer on the game’s official blog. “We are simultaneously working hard on a number of top issues that we will address as soon as possible in the next update that we will be able to detail later. As always, you can find the latest information here in the Battlefield 4 Control Room.”
Here are the game update notes:
- Fixed the “one-hit kill” bug where bullets were sometimes applying their damage multiple times to a character. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when having a very large amounts of Friends
- Enabled audio in PS4 video captures
