In a bid to increase general game stability and clear up various bugs, DICE has released a new Battlefield 4 update for the Xbox 360 version of the military shooter.

Notably, you will not be automatically prompted to download the update. Instead, you'll need to manually download the "multiplayer update 3" from the Xbox Live marketplace.

The update also clears out the "one-hit kill" bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times, dealing one-hit kills where they didn't belong. DICE already addressed this issue on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

DICE also today began rolling out a new Battlefield 4 server version for all platforms. This will unlock the M1911 3X pistol scope for all players, which was previously only available to developers. It also promises a fix for battlepack boost time not being used when playing as Commander, as well as a fix for rank getting capped to 100 when playing as tablet Commander.

Check out the full December 5 Xbox 360 patch notes for a full run-down of tweaks to the game. "Rest assured that we are already working on more improvements to the game," DICE said. "Stay tuned to the Battlefield 4 Control Room for the latest."

Dec. 5 X360 Game Update Notes:

  • -Reduced the risk of a crash when transitioning from one multiplayer round to another
  • -Fixed a crash that could occur when creating decals (bullet hit effects, etc.)
  • -Fixed a crash that could occur when leaving vehicles
  • -Fixed a crash that could occur when moving outside of the intended play area
  • -Fixed a crash that could occur when firing the MBT and IFV gunner incendiary weapon
  • -Fixed a crash that could occur when opening the Options menu
  • -Fixed a problem with weapon accessories using up too much memory, which in turn could lead to crashing

Battlefield 4 is a little glitchy but I'm confident that they'll patch it right up. The only glitches I've encountered are funny ones such as when you shoot someone, sometimes their body spasms and launches itself towards the sun.


Single player was glitchy too. I saw an enemy floating in the sky once. I marked him. He started bouncing up and down. I watched him for a while but then I continued the mission. A few minutes later, I look back because I saw a marker far out in the distance and the enemy was running up the side of the mountain. It continued running all the way up and then down the other side so I couldn't' see him anymore. It was one of the funniest glitches I saw.

It's hilarious seeing all the people up in arms about BF4 so far. Honestly, it's not totally EA's fault - DICE has -always- been iffy when it comes to a launch. Every Battlefield has had several game-breaking problems at launch; 1942, Vietnam, 2, 2142 and 3 all had really unstable launches (can't say much for Bad Company but I do recall some bugs with the first one).


The only thing I'd blame EA on is wanting the game on 5 platforms at once, that was just a horrible idea that definitely put some strain on BF4's development. There was bound to be problems, especially with the servers, just be patient and DICE will smooth out the game - I'm already noticing more and more improvement on the PC side, I'm just hoping for better optimization once the crashes are fixed.

<< LINK REMOVED >> It's true, but don't forget EA has been at the helm for each of those launches as well, I think it's fair to put equal blame on both EA and DICE, they both are disgraceful when it comes to releasing a working product out of the gate. I remember BC2 barely even let people connect for its first couple weeks (on console at least), and that was a game much smaller in scope.

This game has been out for almost 2 months and they are just releasing patches that fix a half dozen CRASH bugs and a problem where people could get 1-hit kills?


With these bugs they should reset everyone's progress.
