Battlefield 4 has had a rocky start with users reporting stability issues and frequent crashes, and there was even a DDoS attack on the game's servers. Electronic Arts CEO has responded to the problems, and the game started a double XP weekend to try and appease affected players, but even with frequent patches, Battlefield 4's official forums are still filled with new threads detailing problems and crashes.

For the PC and PS4 at least, some of those issues should get fixed tomorrow with yet another patch. Developer DICE posted on the official Battlefield forums to let players know that: "This update was scheduled to go live as quickly as possible to fix the so-called 'one-shot kill bug,' where bullets were sometimes applying damage multiple times to a character. We are simultaneously working hard on a number of top issues that we will address as soon as possible in the next update that we will be able to detail later."

The update for Xbox One and PS3 is slated to go live sometime later this week.

The specific list of PS4 fixes include:

  • Fixed the "one-hit kill" bug where bullets were sometimes applying their damage multiple times to a character. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when having a very large amounts of Friends
  • Enabled audio in PS4 video captures

Here is the list of PC fixes:

  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
  • Fixed the audio bug where audio sometimes randomly dropped out while playing on certain multiplayer maps (typically Golmud Railway and Hainan Resort)
  • Fixed the "one-hit kill bug" where occasionally damage from a single bullet was applied multiple times
  • Fixed a common crash that would occur when exiting from the Single Player Campaign to Main Menu
  • Tweaked the network and computer performance screen to show proper values. Players can now test their computer and network connection and get recommendations if they need to adjust something to improve their gameplay experience
