There have been many bits of information surrounding the upcoming Battlefield 3 patch, and we’ve taken to task to compile all the expected fixes and tweaks that DICE has confirmed will make their way into the new patch, which should be released in early February. The list of confirmed additions:

  • Commo Rose 2.0: a complete overhaul of the “Q”-button communications interface, with new commands, voice overs, and more.
  • Weapon specific accessory tweaks: accessories such as silencers, foregrips etc. will now be tweaked on a per weapon basis and not globally. All accessories are expected to be tweaked in this patch. For more, see a full list of accessory tweaks.
  • A fix for MAV riding will be applied
  • Random “Bad Luck” deaths will be fixed across all platforms.
  • PlayStation 3 users will see a VOIP fix
  • Drivers will now get 50 points for “vehicle assist kills”. Pilot assist points will be increased as well.
  • Sniper rifles will get increased accuracy after aiming-down with Red Dot or Holo sights.

And a few unconfirmed patch notes, but issues/features that DICE are looking into:

  • The USAS-12 with Frag rounds will be balanced (unconfirmed: DICE has said they are looking into it).
  • The resupply speed on the M320 grenade launcher might get increased, according to DICE.
  • Horn sounds will be added to Humvees and other transport vehicles.
  • Fall damage is being looked into as well.

        Respawning at your deployment base yes, as these should be safe zones which on many maps they sadly aren’t. But if you respawn or just spawn on a teammate in battle, no. If you are revived in battle oh well. War is hell.

        There was a glitch where if you got revived in combat, you would become invincible for the rest of the match. I think they fixed that in the last update. Probably what they were talking about when they said the god mode thing.

        Revive? you mean when an assault medic, revives you? Thats not Dice’s fault, your teammate has to ensure that when they revive your the current firefight isn’t gonna just rekill you before you fully take too it. As for if you simply respawn into death…a risk you run when you spawn on squadmates

        I agree, but neither is creating a weapon/ammo that requieres no skill what so ever and that can kill you from way far of a normal shotgun range.I guess the people that like the gun as it is, is probably the same people that want a 1 shoot kill with snipers, and think that the famas isn´t powerfull enough.

          First off, I don’t like the usas 12 with frag round combo, especially on metro it’s so annoying. Other maps it is not that impacting, except some parts in grand bazaar. Also the famas is just like the f2000, spray and pray at close range but not that good >30m. Personally I would take the f2000 over the famas anytime. But said that, I would like to have at least one sniper rifle that can kill with one shot at CERTAIN CONDITIONS!. Shotguns do the same from point blank range and so should a .338 lapua round from the m98B at point blank to the face or upper torso area. leg/arms hits should do the damage they do now. But when you whack a high velocity round as that .338 lapua through someones chest it SHOULD be a one hit kill.

          I don’t understand people like you. why don’t you want weapons to be powerful? Bullets are meant to kill people, why do you want to have to shoot someone six times in a game? I certainly think sniper rifles should be one hit kill to the torso or head. I think every other weapon should be a four hit kill max, taking into account body armour which might stop some rounds.Sniper rifles should have permanent 8x scopes for balance, and should be extremely unnacurate when not aiming down sights.

          @Profaker

          Demize argued on Twitter (and I think I agree with him) that the problem isn’t the FAMAS itself, it’s the foregrip on the FAMAS. It basically turns the weapon into a death laser at any range. I think the FAMAS is actually a big part of the reason why they’re now tweaking accessories on a per-weapon basis.

          You had me at hello but lost me at goodbye. I’m not a sniper and at times it gets annoying that 90% of the players on both sides of a conquest match are sniping nowhere where they can help their teams or getting killed by one isn’t frustrating when caught up in what your doing but to say people who want one shot snipers are in line with those who like their impossibly perfect Famas rifles and annoyingly lacking skill spamming USAS-12 frags are the same pack of players is dead wrong.

          Just wanted to tell you that they are not the same thing. Snipers should be strong, but weapons in general should be, especially in hardcore if no where else.

          Balancing weapons in a game isn’t easy and can easily, if not carefully done, cause the game to fall into game breaking slow decline.

        I agree, but, big but, this isn’t a simulator.

        I play hardcore for closer realism and I can’t even get that when weapons don’t kill in 1-3 shots. Sniper fire to the torso = game over but no. All weapons to the head should equal dead unless we are talking pistols from god knows how far away into a helmet etc.

        Anyhow I want Hardcore to be dangerous because war is hell and bodies are mush.

        Then you need to learn to fly /shoot the thing. Gunner is main weapon in the chopper, the pilot needs 1. to fly good so gunner can shoot properly, 2. to take out damaged targets or supplement the gunner in attacking. That’s why the rockets don’t too much damage.
        But most importantly he should keep the air clear from enemies.
        Also its good to see a chopperpilot finally gets some real points for flying the transport choppers. It wasn’t a rewarding role up to now.

        What should be fixed asap:
        -HACKERS
        -hitmarkers on equipment, especially the soflam.
        -METRO CONQUEST, ADD A FUCKING FLAG!
        -strike at karkand ADD THE TWO ORIGINAL FLAGS!
        -VOIP ON PC
        -RANDOM CRASHES
        -HACKERS, DID I SAY HACKERS?
        -Some extra vegetation on wake island
        - add a standard rule to servers to autoban players getting >15 kills in 5 sec
        -flickering graphics when looking through scope on long distances.
        - option to raise aim on sniper rifles with rifle/sniper scopes so you can ‘zone in’ on a certain distance so when you aim on target you don’t need to aim down the mil dots. (optional but would make the game way more realistic sniperwise)
        -thinner 12x scope crosshairs
        -make the spawn map fullsized, or at least toggle between them
        - make more increments or better increments in zooming, the first one is too close, the second one too far, the third one useless because of all the icons cluttering it. (use for the last one is in jets/choppers only so we don’t need ammo boxes etc.)
        -lifetime ban for hackers
        -bigger/adjustable size squads, I think on 64 player maps 4 man squads are a bit too small. Not a big deal but would be great to have as an option.
        - fix AA rocket kills, I shot down quite a few jets and choppers but only 1(!) kill with stinger and 7 with igla due to I only get a disable and/or destroy vehicle and not the kill. Very very annoying and almost impossible to get the dogtags that way.
        - zoom option on the stationary rockets as in bc2.
        - stationary stinger sites as in bf2.
        -please let me cook grenades!
        - let smoke stay for a bit longer, now its like 5 seconds and its gone again. I think 7 seconds is better and makes it actually usefull.
        - don’t know why there is single shot on an94, it is impossible for the real gun to do, due to mechanics. Why add that to the gun ingame where it is useless because of the dual shot burst that supposed to hit the same spot?

          “- add a standard rule to servers to autoban players getting >15 kills in 5 sec”

          I like the idea, but 15 kills in 5 seconds seems a little too…low? What I’m trying to say is, every once in a great while, completely legitimate players can get that insane 15+ kill streak in under 5 seconds. It is very well possible, it’s just a matter of having the right skill, and having that great opportunity which rarely comes along.

          Of course something like that would definitely make hackers govern what they’re doing, but it would come at the cost of completely legitimate players being auto-banned after getting that once in a life time kill streak.

      I think they need to get rid of the frag rounds for the USAS. It’s rediculous. You cannot find one match where someone isn’t using it with frag rounds. They ruin the game and almost makes it impossible to play when half the people on the enemy team are using it (especially on Metro). I mean honestly, do you really suck so much that you have to use a FULLY AUTOMATIC GRENADE LAUCHER to get kills!?! The USAS is the new IRNV of weapons (before the patch). Grow some balls and fight like men… with bullets, don’t spam explosive rounds.

    So:
    “The USAS-12 with Frag rounds will be balanced (unconfirmed: DICE has said they are looking into it).”
    “The resupply speed on the M320 grenade launcher might get increased, according to DICE.”

    That pretty much makes it a wash, no?

          What I was trying to say is, I don’t find it an issue if someone get nearly a 100 kill whit the thing.. it just means that the guy is fucking beast at it and the other team is incredibly noob to let him reach such a score. How hard is it to have at least 4 guys targeting him whit a javelin??.. I know its a pain to get some communications goin but heyy I would text the mofos in cases like this

          my point is I don’t agree whit you in the fact that is overpowered.. I think people should just use more teamwork when facing a challenge like this.. no need to punish the guy beasting..he deserve it lol.

          Haha alright now I gotchya.

          No that’s cool, I get what you’re saying. And you’re right, it’s not overpowered unless used a certain way. I’m leaning more toward Rush on the map Noshahr Canals by the way. It’s just really annoying and plain stupid when you have a tank that can obliterate anything coming out of that carrier (playing defenders). Not to mention it can lock on to helicopters as soon as they get into the air from that range. There isn’t much of a challenge when the attackers can’t move up. I’m actually saying this from the perspective of a person who has gotten 70 kills just camping that spawn with the tank. So, all I’m saying is that something needs to be fixed, probably that first crate area.

        Just remove the damn thing and put stationary Stinger points on some of the flags. And also, why is the Base AA not destructable. It’s only use is essentially to prevent baseraping, but its still freaking annoying when you’re flying to kill an enemy jet, he runs to his base and the damn AA n00b with 2/0 after 45 minutes of camping in the frickin thing kills you.

    Sigh… STILL NO VOIP FOR PC. Battlelog VOIP is a great solution for something like an established clan, but the way the game works for the majority of people is almost anti-communicative for PC users. It prevents people from establishing friendships and certainly destroys the ability to work as a team. I don’t mind if they wait until they can execute it well, but some official feedback from DICE would be incredible. Has anyone heard any news on in-game VOIP for PC?????

    Hey James/Toshiro/whoever might know:

      Developer Twittered that either the PS3 VoIP Fix Patch or the Commo Rose 2.0 Patch would be in February. We’re assuming it’ll be the same one.

      The Patch is launched at the same time for all 3 Platforms. Microsoft and Sony cockblock it with their approval process which takes 1-2 weeks usually, so the PC ends up getting it first because it doesn’t have that step. So yes, PC will most likely end up getting it before the other 2 Platforms again.

      In my opinion, keyword *opinion*, aircraft already have a big advantage over infantry.

      “But that isn’t true!”

      Have you ever played a round with a enemy helicopter pilot with an amazing gunner that work together? Anyone on my team who has the balls to outside is greeted with a friendly face full of explosive shells. Or look at the little bird. Last night I got literally 39 kills and 0 deaths in rush because I stole their teams little bird when they unsuccessfully crashed it. I lasted so long because it’s extremely easy to dodge stinger missiles in a little bird.

      I’m not saying air vehicles are over powered, I’m just saying that they already have a big advantage over infantry.

        I think that he mainly means jets. There’s no doubt that helicopters are effective against infantry, but jets don’t do anything. I’ve never once been killed by a jet when I was on the ground.

          I agree. In BF2 you at least had bombs to take out infantry, but in BF3 all you really have is your primary weapon. The only time I seem to get killed by jets is when I’m in ground vehicles. It’s possible to take out ground infantry that aren’t in vehicles of course, but difficult to do so from what I noticed.

          I do not agree… I don’t think Jets should be an infantry rape machine.

          Now if they were to mix the frog/a10 into conquest mode, that would be a nice mix up.

          I like the fact that jets are only effective against air and ground assets. They are VERY effective. I do not think there is a need to also make them effective against infantry too… unless they give up something else (like no after burner etc)
