Battlefield 4 server update causing PC respawn issues

Posted on January 17, 2014 AT 08:01am

A recent server update for the PC version of Battlefield 4 has introduced a bug to the game that prevents players from respawning, according to posts on both Reddit and the Battlelog forums.

A Reddit thread claims that server update R20 is preventing players from spawning after they die. Another thread on the Battlelog forums adds that players are also getting kicked from matches and are unable to join servers following the patch.

DICE is yet to issue any official patch notes for this latest server update. Some players are reporting that updating Punkbuster fixes the respawning issue, but others have not been so lucky.

Battlefield 4 recently received a new stability patch on all platforms.
