DICE recently released updates for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Battlefield 4 that fix several bugs currently present in the game.

The updates fix an issue that caused the game to crash when switching to, or spawning into, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT, a bug that caused sound to stop playing in Team/Squad Deathmatch, decreases the rate “at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive,” fixes a MAV exploit, and more.

The developer also recently announced that all Battlefield 4 players will be able to download a free Shortcut Kit as part of Player Appreciation Month.

PlayStation 3 Update

  • Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash
  • Fix for missing sound in Team/Squad Deathmatch
  • Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted
  • Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive
  • Fix for an invisible wall that was incorrectly present in one of the fallen concrete pipes on Zavod 311
  • Fix for an issue where bullet impact sounds weren’t properly matching the actual number of impacts, causing the players to feel that they died too quickly.
  • Fix for an issue where the “Draw” message would not display on-screen once a Conquest round ended with both teams having the same amount of tickets
  • Fix for an issue where long IDs wouldn’t scroll on dog tags
  • Fix for missing grass physics in terrain
  • Fix for an issue where the player camera would be positioned inside of the soldier when parachute spawning
  • Fix for a MAV exploit that let players reach various out-of-map locations
