DICE has been working on some major changes to Battlefield 1‘s weapons and their time-to-kill (TTK) numbers for several months now, and we finally know when these changes will be introduced.

Battlefield 1 lead gameplay designer Alex Sulman announced during a recent Twitter Q&A that the weapon changes will be introduced to the game alongside the second half of the Turning Tides DLC, which is launching for the game sometime in January.

Various weapon changes have been tested on Battlefield 1‘s Community Test Environment since September 2017, but the majority of the changes focus on reducing the TTK for the Assault class’ sub-machine guns and the Support class’ light machine guns. Medic self-loading rifles will also see buffs in terms of damage over distance and bullet spread, and shotguns will see adjustments that will make their pellet patterns more predictable and uniform, preventing lucky one-shot kills or unlucky misses over distance. Scout rifles will not see any changes, but they really don’t need them, if we’re being honest.

There’s no official release date yet for the January update, but Battlefield insider Westie guessed in a recent video detailing the weapon changes that it will fall on the last Tuesday of the month, which is January 30th.

Battlefield 1 is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
