Battlefield 4 developers DICE are looking for your feedback on some important balancing tweaks the studio plans on pushing out to the game in the near future.
The majority of tweaks in question are related to vehicle balance, including attack boats, anti-air, jets, and tanks.
“We have a wide range of tweaks planned to further balance the core gameplay of Battlefield 4 in upcoming patches,” writes DICE in a recent blog post. “But we need your help in identifying next steps.”
“We have a lot of balancing items in the pipeline for our upcoming Battlefield 4 patches, and we will be able to share them and the rationale behind them soon. In the meantime, we would love to hear your opinions on some of the additional balancing ideas that we could add to the mix.”
The topics include:
- ATTACK BOATS AIR DEFENSE
- FGM-148 DAMAGE INCREASE AGAINST TANKS
- STEALTH JET CANNON TWEAKS
- FAST ATTACK CRAFT CANNON TWEAKS
- MBT AND IFV CANISTER SHELL BUFF

Over on Twitter, Battlefield 4 game designer Alan Kertz has been rather busy suggesting fixes and looking for feedback. Here are a few of the things he had to say:
– “338-Recon, bolt action timer 1.4->1.25 to make it more appealing vs the M98B. Thoughts?”
In a follow up to this question, Kertz also clarified that the effects of the straight pull attachment that many carry concerns over are “as designed, but likely to be changed.” With regards to bolt-action rifles, Kertz is also “considering adjusting the bullet trail to make it easier to see the drop and travel distance.”
On to some more questions and suggestions:
– “Canister Shells on MBT and IFV. How would you buff them?”
– “Which main gun do you use on your Fast Attack Craft: 25mm? 30mm? Burst?”
– “Would you buff or nerf any of the cannons on the FAC?”
– “Was thinking: Higher Speed on the Burst cannon projectiles, smaller blast area on the 25mm projectiles. No change 30mm.”
Of course, the number of items the studio is looking into are not limited to Kertz’s Twitter list nor the items features in the official blog post. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for news of upcoming fixes in the coming days/weeks!
