To make the tweet chain an easier read, we’ve compiled all the weapon feedback messages below.
Assault Rifle Dispersion:
As part of a future update, we’ll be targeting your feedback about burst firing with Assault Rifles.
The dispersion delay currently experienced is not intended, and we’ll be reducing the Dispersion Delay by half.
We’ll also be making changes to some Assault Rifles that are in the extremes of the maximum and minimal possible dispersion rates. With an intent to compress them further, so that they perform in their intended ranges.
Expect a full list at a later date.
As previously indicated, the changes in Update 5.0 would not be the last for the RM68
This weapon will be receiving a reduction of the 4HK range by 10m for Standard & High Power ammo, and removed from CQB ammo
We’ll also be reducing the bullet velocity by 90.
That’s it for now!
While this season has only just begun, we’re already working and acting upon your feedback and making changes where possible
We look forward to sharing more news on when to expect these changes and more, in the future, but for now:
See you on the Battlefield
No word yet on when we’ll be getting this update, but not anytime soon, as we just got the Season 5 patch this week. Speaking of which, you can read the stealth changes (read: undocumented adjustments) made by DICE in the Season 5 patch right here.
