Tomorrow's Battlefield 4 PS4 update will fix 'one-hit kill' bug
The dreaded "one-hit-kill bug" plaguing the PS4 version of Battlefield 4 will be fixed tomorrow as part of a game update that will go live in "the afternoon EU time." DICE confirmed the game update today and warned that players might experience a short downtime while the update is being deployed.
"Basically, if you're online when the update is deployed, you might get kicked from the server and unable to reconnect in a few minutes," DICE warned.
"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," developer DICE explained. "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."
As for tomorrow's update, here are the list of fixes:
- 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
The PC version of the game is also slated to get an update tomorrow, coinciding with the launch of the China Rising DLC for Premium members on all platforms.
