Battlefield 4 Patch Hits PS4 and PS3, Players Receiving Veteran Battlepacks

Two new game updates hit the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions of Battlefield 4 earlier today.

Similar to the game’s Xbox 360 update earlier in the week, reports are coming in that some users are receiving their Veteran Battlepacks for their Soldier. The updates also contain similar notes to the Xbox 360′s patch, including fixes for missing sounds, Defuse bugs, and kill card issues.

Check out the full lists below and let us know in the comments, did you get your Veteran Battlepack? Still no news on Battlefield 4′s Xbox One patch, but keep your sights locked right here for updates!

Battlefield 4 February 21 PlayStation 4 Update

  • Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash
  • Fix for missing sound in Team/Squad Deathmatch
  • Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted
  • Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive
  • Fix for an invisible wall that was incorrectly present in one of the fallen concrete pipes on Zavod 311
  • Fix for an issue where bullet impact sounds weren’t properly matching the actual number of impacts, causing the players to feel that they died too quickly.
  • Fix for an issue where the “Draw” message would not display on-screen once a Conquest round ended with both teams having the same amount of tickets
  • Fix for an issue where long IDs wouldn’t scroll on dog tags
  • Fix for missing grass physics in terrain
  • Fix for an issue where the player camera would be positioned inside of the soldier when parachute spawning
  • Fix for a MAV exploit that let players reach various out-of-map locations

  • That guy you might know

    How does an issue that was fixed in BF3 become an issue again.

    I’m not surprised really but damn dice

      People can still get into the ceiling by B on Operation Metro 2014 from the gameplay I’ve seen.

        So DICE team just opened the BF3 project file of metro map, updated the textures etc. and export as it was :) easy money! no surprises.

        • Katana67

          Yet they totally had sex with every aspect of Gulf of Oman, right down to adding minute foot sills so that we can’t go through doorways easily.

          Mind boggling.

        • MeisseN

          If you watch BF3 alpha gameplay footages and BF4 Metro 2014 you will find a suprising resemblance. BF4 Metro is basically BF3 alpha Metro since they removed the blue tint and a higher contrast (yeah making people harder to find enemies). I know people are gonna ask: Hey of course these are the same because it’s a remake. But f*ck it, not even going to mention about charging us for the same old sh*t, but what about the ceiling glitch, they had it in BF3 alpha and BF4. Even if they simply opened BF3′s Metro file and updated textures and stuff it would be better since they are less likely to bring back bugs that were fixed!

    “Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted” finally

  • https://www.twitter.com/#!/PR0TENTIAL Shawn Kegarise

    Got my Veteran battlepack finally, now I’m able to use my Boxcutter instead of my Shank.

  • http://tabletliegitim.com/ Orcun Acik

    I’ve played one hour after update. Crashed 2 times; one time during game and one while on loading screen. Game looks far better than before and frame rate is good but when scene is crowded it still drops to 10-15fps for a while. They should also fix spawn system; game spawns enemies behind you !

    • Katana67

      Well, I’d imagine it’s a tough thing to do. I’ve never seen spawns really done all that well, ever. CoD has some pretty rough ones too, and it’s more about how you can read spawns than actually play the game.

      But yes, the spawns are pretty bad. I’ve spawned in front of people so many times it’s not even funny in BF.

  • thatoneguy

    Does anyone know if this patch has hit X1 yet?

    • http://mp1st.com/ David Veselka

      Not yet! Hopefully soon. Should have included that info in the article. Thanks!

      • schrute

        Take the game off xbox, the extra ram it uses for its useless media features means us PS4 users don’t get to use our system to its full power cuz dice isn’t gonna make a seperate version just for. xbox

        • thatoneguy

          Instead of completely ending a game’s life cycle, a better idea would Microsoft deciding to actually give us a GAMING CONSOLE and not an entertainment machine. I can honestly say I used any of their entertainment features maybe once. I have not actually used my kinect for voice controls in over a month, I use Skype maybe once a month to talk to my sister in Alaska, and I had my cable box hooked up for a matter of hours before I decided I don’t want my xbox to ALWAYS be on. Not to mention the tv app is horrible, you can’t access any of your dvr recordings, it’s clunky, slow, and just causes extreme stress on the console.

    • Noobslayr

      Thank microsoft for taking their sweet time “validating” the patch. Out of DICE’s hands

  • Katana67

    This particular patch (for all systems) is just boring. Waiting on the patches we were promised in “Appreciation” month.

    Waiting for them to fix their buildings on Gulf of Oman. Five inch foot sills preventing people from going through doors without jumping. Non collision floors. One C4 pack causing ALL OF THE WALLS to blow out. Shitty bipod positioning when setting up on normally useful surfaces.

    Is anyone rubberbanding more than usual on PS4? I really don’t get why DICE has to make lagging all the more irritating. We’re already lagging/rubberbanding, why do you feel it necessary to kick out my bipod and cause my aircraft to jingle around unecessarily?

    • M27 IAR

      I’m rubberbanding like mad. I have pretty much lost all interest. What a monumental disappointment.

    • David!!

      Yeah, I’m typically optimistic, but I’ve lost 90% hope that this game will smooth out. When working, the game is absolutely incredible. Every time a jet spirals over my head and crashes behind me, it’s the most incredible high and ultra-immersive moments ever in any game I’ve played.

      Then comes the realization that it was shot down by a retardedly overpowered maa or the plane bounced so much

      • Noobslayr

        Michael Bay? Oh jesus

        • David!!

          Give me a more succinct/better adjective for ridiculous over the top action and I’ll use it…until then, yes Michael freaking Bay

      • NinoBr0wn

        If it were from Michael Bay, I’d have no problem stopping watching it.

  • EcHo84

    Good thing the patch broke the ingame server browser…Dice ownz!!!

    • Just saying

      I noticed. Every patch introduces a bug, EPIC!

  • Just saying

    I just have to live with the state of BF4 now. All the patches they released are good and all but I still don’t like how it is. I just stopped playing it on PS4 and moved on to other titles. Waiting for PS2 to fill the FPS gap that I have now.

  • MeisseN

    Hold on there you DID say you are gonna fix the 0 health bug (or if it’s even a bug), right? DICE? (http://mp1st.com/2014/02/13/incoming-battlefield-4-pc-patch-sneak-peak-battlelog-loadout-presets/ ) So now you are not only creating 100 bugs after fixing one, you aren’t fixing sh*t AT ALL.

    Oh wait. “Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive.” Oh DICE ya cheeky bastard. Decrease is such a nice word. So basically you can fix nothing and say hey man we are decreasing this sh*t look EA rushed us alright you can’t blame us even if we suck.

    F*ck you.

    • MeisseN

      Please take back all these sh*tty battlepacks from me as I seriously don’t use any of the attachments included. 4x ACOG for MX4? Kobra for M40A5? Bitch please. Player appreciation month? That’s what you bring us, a buggy-than-ever broken piece of sh*t.

      • schrute

        Wats posting on an online game site gonna do, just make yourself look like an idiot

        • Noobslayr

          Mission accomplished

        • MeisseN

          What about being f*cked in the BUTT by EA and making no sound, just make yourself look like a b*tch.

          • NinoBr0wn

            What he means is use the proper outlet since you’re so bothered and vocal about it.

        • Ben August

          Actually, it helps those of use who are intelligently waiting to purchase the game…

          No point in purchasing something that is just going to let me down now, when I can wait till the bugs (or the majority of them) have been addressed, and fixed appropriately

          See- those of us waited, can use these forums as a testing ground. You guys test it- I benefit.

          Please- I hope they keep the comments, reviews, and criticism coming. It’s very useful for those of us that don’t like needless mental anguish…

          Once it’s good to go- then I’ll buy it.

    • OshotOkill

      The patch is on PS4/PS3,not PC I reckon.

      But 0 health bug on PS4 still exists,DECREASE is bullshit.

      • MeisseN

        It was clearly stated in the article “Battlefield 4 February 13 PC Game Update”

        I don’t even think the 0 health on kill card is a bug, though. Check my post under that piece of news where I expressed my thoughts about it.

        • OshotOkill

          PC’s been updated one week before,maybe they have somehting in common,but this title is PS4/PS3

  • paulinacio

    “Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash”
    I crash every single time now when I get in the gunner seat, whereas pre-patch it only happen to me once =/

  • Johnny Neat

    First “fix” still happens. Guess that wasn’t fixed. Let’s not talk about sound either.

  • OshotOkill

    They haven’t fixed the bug that players offen sink into map terrain,which upsets me the most

    It would be nice if they fixed it to where the assignments could show up in the battle log during the matches.
