Battlefield 4 on Xbox One should finally be free of one-hit kill bug after today's patch

DICE will release new update for Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 today.

Update: DICE has released the full patch notes for the update:

  • Fixed three common crashes that could occur during map transitions.
  • Fixed a common crash that could occur when using the in-game Battlelog in the "end of round" screen.
  • Fixed two crashes related to destroying vehicles.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when the player lost connection to a server.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the scoreboard.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when players were using the voice chat.
  • Optimized performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects on some levels.
  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks.
  • Fixed the "one-hit kill" bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed.
  • Fixed a memory leak that could lead to crashes at certain points.
  • Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign.
  • Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds.
  • Fixed an issue with going online after resuming your Xbox One from suspended mode.
  • Fixed some issues with the handling of Xbox One parties.
  • Made the icons used to signal voice chat status more reliable.

Original story: A new update for Battlefield 4 on Xbox One will be released today, DICE has confirmed.

A previous patch for the game, due to go live at the start of December, was delayed. DICE's work on the previous patch has been rolled into today's update.

The new patch will be rolled out from 10:00 UTC/02:00 PDT. DICE says it will release full notes for the update later today.

The PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 was updated earlier this week, with DICE pledging to fix the game's "one-hit kill" bug. The same bug should now be quashed in the Xbox One version after the update.

Battlefield 4's problematic launch has caused DICE to halt work on all future projects and Battlefield 4 expansions until the issues are remedied.

So this is something I just don't get it, maybe I'm slow or plan stupid.... (apologies in advance for my english, not my first languaje).


I like to think that when BF4 was on a beta stage and every one of us played the game and gave a LOT of feedback about the good the bad and the ugly, DICE would consider take a look at the feedback.


Is really hard to believe that the game was good to go and ready to go out to the public, and by some incredible coincidence all this bugs, crashes, freezes, locking ups, etc, etc started to appear.


This only means that who ever tested the game had absolutely no issues and gave green light, don't think so...


As someone like many others here, I work for a living, and I don't give out my work half done after being paid... As a profesional and out of respect for my clients I deliver a job 100% finished.


I really like the game, I think after CoD back in the days, set a higher standard of FPS, personally it is a lack of respect to the gamer community. Selling a game for 80$, (Australia price) is a slap on the face when half the time doesn't work. I have tried to like it, a lot. And get on a mind set that I'm playing a big expensive Beta....


The worst thing is when this "updates" appear, updates that are a sign of laziness, or just greed. Updates that where perfectly fixable BEFORE the game was out. I really can't believe there where not there when tested.... no way, not that many....


And to top it up, there is no fix at all after updating it, don't get it.... I have a 360, yes, it is crap.... but as we all know is on every single console, and PC.



BF4 has everything to be a mind blowing game, but it takes, arrogance, greedines, laziness, or a monumental amount of bad luck to turn it into a bitter and frustrating experience.


DICE/EA, you have to get you Sh....t together, make a public and sincere apology and for once fix the game...

Hahahaha ya downloaded your patch today and guess what.... its still fucked. Cant get into any games i like to play just domination. The game also has crashed my system twice today so cool story about fixing the one hit kills but i cant even get in a game so i can see if thats true. This game is a joke i really think it could be a great game but when you release it when its not even half done how would one know. Im disgusted so much cause i was hoping this game would move people off COD but not when you do things like this.

I just want to get in multiplayer. I can get on 1 in 20 tries, and even then theres a 50/50 chance of crashing mid-game.

Anyone else go back to BF3 after playing BF4? I played BF4 for about a day and couldn't handle all the locking up and other issues. So I went back to BF3 like comfort food. Such a disappointment for me. Does the game still lock up on loading levels on the XBox? Horrible game play....only thing worse would be adding dogs. UGH! DICE....WTF?

<< LINK REMOVED >> I feel you man... I always end up going back to BF3, in comparison is 10X better that BF4, graphs, sounds, map size, etc, etc, etc... no 20 secs of dead silence at the beginning of each game, crashes on almost every game, Q-bert graphics, and on and on...!

keep going dice, there is still alot to fix and balance. bf3 took a year to be fixed so bf4 will probably be the same. i wait. when bf4 is properly fixed and balanced i buy it for the ps4. until them i will just enjoy the shitstorm EA/DICE deserves.

I hope this doesnt affect dice too much. They have created in BF4 a good game but jsut released 4 weeks too early. Heck I think give them til start 2014, we might have had a polished game. When it works BF4 is unrivalled.

@garysingh34 False. 4 weeks too early, more like 14 months. The beta was far too short and didn't actually function as a beta to actually show them any bugs, nor are they taking any of the reports from the beta into account when they do try to patch it. It's also a shitty game even when it works most of the time. BF3 took a year to get functional and by that time the last DLC was out and they were hyping the next game.


BF4 is the same, on the same engine, and yet they haven't figured out how to fix the game.

<< LINK REMOVED >>4 weeks too early? lol. bc2 needed 6 months after release to be fixed. bf3 needed 1 year after release to be fixed. unless dice have alot of people working to fix bf4, which they probably haven´t. bf4 will need a year to be fixed. the crashes and servers problems will be fixed soon, but the rest will take time, because after the crashes and server problems are fixed bf4 will no longer be a priority to EA even if it´s not completely fixed. EA/DICE will just move on.

<< LINK REMOVED >> ...It's EA being EA dude. Money is everything.


Let's see in March 2014, Maybe Titanfall will kick both of them from their throne as top FPS (After that too, i'll decide which one to buy, BF4 or Titanfall)

Titanfall = BF + COD + Mechas + Parkour

Ghosts has only shipped around 11-12million units so far, a far cry from the the days of Modern Warfare 2 and 3.

Well at the rate of one bug fix after nearly a month this game will never be patched up completely. Its a mess and should never have been released in this state.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> hopefully not too drastic. EA is to blame for deadlines etc. I could respect any developer/publisher that delays games on the grounds of quality of experience. I was not mad about watch dogs for this very reason.
