DICE has released a new update for the PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 that improves the game’s overall stability, tweaks several weapons, and improves spectator mode.

“You may experience some downtime during this rollout, as we are also updating the game servers,” the developer wrote. “As usual, it will take a few hours before the majority of servers are updated.”

The weapon balance tweaks in this update include lowering the rate of fire of the SRS, reducing the muzzle velocity of the MP7 and MTAR21, and updating the rate of fire for the RGP7 and NLAW.
