If you’ve been following the latest happenings inside Battlefield 4‘s Community Test Environment, you’ll know that developer DICE LA has recently introduced some major tweaks to weapon balance and the way suppression works while in combat.
In order to accentuate the different roles certain weapon types play in the Battlefield 4 sandbox, DICE LA has made a few broad strokes to each weapon class, meaning the assault rifle you thought sucked a few months back might feel like a whole different beast following the new Spring Update.
