DICE has started rolling out a new PC and server update for Battlefield 4 that should increase the game’s overall stability. The developer warns that players may experience some downtime during the rollout.

This update fixes a bug that caused the game to crash when spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT, fixes a glitch that caused the sound to die during a Team/Squad Deathmatch, fixes an issue in Defuse that caused the bomb carrier to be permanently spotted, and more.

You can check out the full patch notes below:
