Game Update - Balancing DMR, Anti-Air and More At the End Of January

There is a new update coming for Battlefield 4 at the end of January or beginning of February. This new game update includes a large number of balancing tweaks are changes to the DMR's and anti-air. They are also talking about the multiplayer experience which could include a better netcode? (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So DMR's will now kill point blank? Because so far it never seems to hit if they are to close, but then again I had a guy snipe me from half way a cross the map with the starting DMR with x4 scope.

The guns need to be fix, I won a gun fight with the starting handgun vs the starting shotgun and it was close range. Oh did I forget to say he shot first? An some how I won with my handgun.

yeah the guns are very off in the game... full clip of an automatic vs a pistol and the pistols will win alot

Honestly, the gun just needed a range boost and the headshot multiplyer (meaning 1 shot to head = dead.)

Since I use DMRs almost all the time, I am going to take advantage of this buff and make DICE have to debuff the rifles next patch :)

Ever considered you and the people shooting you suck at the game or have poor internet?

You can't judge balancement from that one time in open play.

Aim Better.

I can hit any sniper on any map with a carbine. It's not hard, thousands of people are even better at it than I.

I think the balance is pretty good considering how many people there are in a match and all that is going on at the same time.

I've yet to think " ok this is cheap " while playing the game.

* I don't like scopes, so I've gotten used to Red dot or iron sight shooting in almost every FPS game I've played.

DMR's though do need a small tweaking, but not because they are too powerful or weak.

Kar98 is my favorite FPS game gun, so I thought I'd be using DMR's a bit more, but there purpose is limited a bit in this game.

Aim better? Guessing you haven't played BF4, because if you did then you would know aiming is pointless if the gun won't hit.

Close range while aiming the DMR is more likely not to hit, heck the MATR starts out crappy because they remove the iron sight on it.

What changed with the P90 from BF3 to 4?
Strongmad  +   297d ago
the p90 was a spray and pray beast.. it was awesome.. I rock the m4 or Type 88 now and kills me plenty with shame

I'm loving the killcams that show your opponent has 0 Health after your gunfight and you get to watch him run off while your body twitches.

They need to give you the option to choose the map that you want to play on, like they had in BF3.

I wont even consider buying premium, even at a reduced price, until then. The server browser doesn't work on ps4 (and even if it did, I'd rather not have to go through a bunch of checklist items to get into the type of match I want to play), so unless you go to your internet browser and use the battlelog server browser, you can't specifically select that you want to play china rising on the ps4 version.

as far as guns go bf3 at the end had it just about right, bf4 is off and needs major work.

anti air is a problem that is caused by the absence of anti aa features and over saturation on a map that is likely too small for mobile aa,jets,choppers,manpads.

its not fun to be on a map like dam and already be blown up from the start because the maps so small the enemy base is 300 yards away and all they have to do is spam aa missiles and guns because they know its an easy kill .

I hate DMR's and Semi Automatic sniper rifles they have the most ANNOYING spamming sound when being fired. For some reason its just so irritating I would rather it make no noise at all
