Patch Notes, out Tuesday -

Introducing Giant’s Shadow*

With a massive crashed airship casting its shadow onto the battlefield, Giant’s Shadow brings fierce combat on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateau-Wassigny railway.

Fight in the shadow of a crashed giant

The Battle of the Selle, 1918. Cold autumn. British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are heading towards a strategic railway center. The outcome is uncertain. An armored train can still turn the tide.

*Available December 13, 2016 for pre-order and Premium Pass customers. Giant’s Shadow will drop for all Battlefield 1 playerson December 20, 2016 as a free map pack.BATTLEFIELD 1 ON APPLICABLE PLATFORM (SOLD SEPARATELY) AND ALL GAME UPDATES, INTERNET CONNECTION, EA ACCOUNT, AND (FOR CONSOLE PLAYERS) AN XBOX LIVE GOLD OR PLAYSTATION PLUS ACCOUNT REQUIRED FOR GIANT’S SHADOW.Retail preorder customers will need to enter their code on the PlayStation®Store/Xbox Store/Origin Store to download the Giant’s Map content starting on December 13, 2016. Early access ends December 20, 2016.

Spectator Mode

With great pleasure, we would like to introduce everyone to the new Spectator mode. In Spectator, players will be able to join a live BF1 match as an observer. From there, observers can switch between first-person and third-person camera views of all the players on the battlefield through our Player View mode, get an overhead bird’s eye view of the battlefield in Table Top mode, or fly a camera through the world using Free Cam mode.
Our goal was to improve Spectator from previous versions of Battlefield. We gathered feedback from the community and focused much of our efforts on improving the usability and flow moving from player-to-player and switching between the different view modes (Table Top, Player View, and Free Cam). Another key design emphasis for us was to make Spectator a viable tool for the community to create content which includes a moveable third-person camera, depth of field, and camera filters.

New Custom Game setting–Standard Issue Rifles

A new Custom Game option has been added: Standard Issue Rifles. In SIR all kits are granted access to their faction’s standard issue rifle. For example, the British are granted the SMLE MKIII. These rifles are not equipped with optics, and are intended to provide players with gameplay inspired by the WW1 trenches. As a Custom Game option, this can be enabled or disabled with other weapon types to create a variety of experiences. SIR is not available as part of the base game experience. We feel that the ability to equip SIR in vanilla would negatively impact the combat roles of the classes. As a clear WW1 fantasy, we hope that SIR scratches an itch for our broad and diverse player base.

Soldier

Movement


We’ve made several fixes and tweaks to the controls and input handling for the soldier experience. Most of these are bug fixes that should generally ensure a higher response level for players. This includes fixing the inability to sprint out of crouch and prone in certain situations and fixing issues with toggle zoom. While we are confident we have improved the situation, we are eager to hear the community’s feedback to see if there are any outstanding or new issues that can be discovered.

Aim Assist

An update has also been made to the controller Aim Assist system in BF1. We now require the player to be actively giving aim input in order to get aim assistance. It was possible in some previous cases to get help on a target when simply strafing past them, which was unintentional. We’ve also exposed additional control options on console, including the ability to tweak the central dead zone. Please note that setting the dead zone too small may introduce unintentional aim movement. We have not made any adjustments to the snap-to-target feature of our Aim Assist. While we are aware there are players who are actively petitioning for the reduction or removal of Aim Assist, we feel that this would be to the detriment of the global player community. As this is an area of high passions, we expect additional feedback on our Aim Assist systems to surface, and we are open to that feedback. We are especially interested in appealing to those players who wish to play without assists, and are sensitive to their needs.

Vehicles

Vehicle Deployment


This update includes some new additional logic to address the problem of spawning as a Tanker, Pilot, or Cavalry soldier without your mount. We have also made some fixes that should prevent the player from getting the incorrect kit when spawning into a vehicle, for example spawning as a Cavalry soldier when spawning into a Tank. In some extreme cases, the player maybe blocked from spawning if a vehicle cannot be spawned. This can happen due to positioning of other soldiers and vehicles in the world, and should be rare. Previously the player would be spawned without the vehicle; in the new case, the spawn flow will be aborted and the player given a “spawn not available” message.

Landship

Looking at the way the game is played, the Landship is underrepresented in gameplay. We wanted to enhance the role of the tank as a teamplay vehicle, as well as give additional incentives for tank drivers to pick up and play the Landship. The biggest change here is the ability to allow teammates to spawn into the Landship directly, like they do the Heavy Tank today. This will help keep the Landship full of teammates, in a way that makes it a far more effective vehicle. We've also applied buffs to the driver abilities and the armor of the Landship, making it as armored as the Heavy Tank. The shape of the Landship still makes it easier to knock out treads and weapons compared to the Heavy Tank.

Air Vehicles

Several adjustments have been made to the combat experience for Air Vehicles. We’ve removed an exploit that allowed instant killing of airplanes with the Ranken Darts; these are intended as ground attack weapons, not air to air weapons. Fighter airplanes now have slightly higher damage to their MGs overall and Bombers take more damage from MGs specifically. Rockets have also received a velocity boost to make their usage more consistent. Combined with some additional reductions in overheat, this should make Fighters more viable in the air to air role without having to resort to exploits or lucky rocket hits. We’ve also reduced the damage of rear gunners in airplanes, in order to prevent players from easily switching to the rear gun and killing pursuers. This tactic is, of course, still viable, but now is more difficult to perform, making it a skill move. The damage reduction should not be extreme enough to significantly decrease the intended teamplay benefit of having a full airplane.

Line of Sight

We’ve added a “Head Glitching” style fix to vehicles that prevents players from shooting over objects that block the weapon’s line of sight. This is most noticeable in 3P, and is intended to fix players being able to fire their tank at targets while remaining entirely behind cover. It is our intent to provide a balanced 1P and 3P vehicle experience, and this fix goes a long way towards ensuring 3P does not become the dominant play style.

Detailed Vehicle Changes

• TankGewehr now does increased damage, from 120-150 to 160-180. Change is on both the Landship and Tank Hunter. Damage against planes is virtually unchanged
• Landship mortars have had their range increased slightly
• The Mortar Pattern of the Landship now has 5 seats, adding two additional side LMG seats to the package
• The Squad Support Pattern of the Landship now features a front firing 20mm cannon like the Light Tank Flanker Pattern, instead of an LMG • The Landship now takes the same damage as the Heavy Tank
• Decreased amount of health restored by emergency repairs on the Heavy Tank from 30% to 20%
• Increased the amount of health restored by track repairs on the Landship from 15% to 20%
• Decreased amount of health restored by emergency repairs on the Landship from 30% to 25%
• Decreased damage of Case shells against planes by 50%
• Reduced stationary AA range from 400 m to 334 m
• Fixed inconsistent damage of plane rockets against other planes
• Reduced plane rocket impact damage from 120 to 100
• Increased plane rocket initial speed and reduced time to live
• Reduced Ranken Dart damage against planes
• Made bombers take 20% more damage from bullets
• Increased Dogfighter and Trench Fighter MG damage by 4% and slowed down the overheat
• Increased Bomber Killer MG damage by 3%
• Decreased Airship Killer MG damage by 18%
• Decrease plane tail gunner damage by 23% (far) to 42% (close) and sped up damage drop-off slightly
• Reduced boat torpedo range to approximately 400 m, matching the behemoth AA range

Weapons

Shotguns


Shotgun balance has been addressed in this update, with the primary goal of evening out the advantages and disadvantages of each type of shotgun. We noticed that some shotguns were unintentionally strong at certain distances, most obvious with the Model 10-A Hunter and Factory, which could kill a full health target at long range (for a shotgun). Players were naturally preferring these shotguns over others. To prevent this, we reduced the range for the buckshot variants of the M97 Trench Gun, Model 10-A and Sawed Off Shotgun, reducing the maximum one-hit kill distance. To make the M97 Trench gun more attractive we added an extra pellet to all variants and slightly improved the damage drop-off for the Sweeper variant. The Backbored shotgun variants had their range improved, as previously you took too big of a hit for the improved recoil. We increased the accuracy of the 12g Automatic to allow users to make use of its high rate of fire more effectively. Tweaked crosshairs will make it easier to land your damage consistently for all shotguns.

LMGs

Adjustments were made to have LMG performance much more consistent at close and medium range. We tweaked how much inaccuracy you get when you start firing an LMG while aimed. Previously, Optical configurations had a significant advantage over the rest unless a bipod was used. Now the accuracy of the second shot is the same for all variants of one LMG and just slightly above the level previously held by the Optical setups. Using a bipod will still give you a significant boost to your accuracy while firing. Additionally, we added a small bonus to horizontal recoil while aimed with Optical variants, improved reload timers to better match the animations, and made the Lewis Gun overheat slower.

Bayonets

Players may now bayonet charge while reloading or when out of ammo with their weapon. The reload will be aborted if the player still has rounds in the magazine. If the weapon is empty, the reload will restart automatically at the end of the charge.

Detailed Weapon Changes

• Reduced reload time for the Lewis MG from 3 to 2.85 s and 4.5 to 4.2 s for fast and slow reload to better match the animations
• Slowed down Lewis MG overheat from 35 to 50 bullets
• Increased Madsen MG fast reload from 2.45 to 2.65 s to better match the animations
• Reduced tactical fast time for the BAR from 2.9 to 2.8 s to better match the animations
• Increased MG15 reload time from 4.3 to 4.45 s to better match the animations
• Corrected an error where LMGs and rifles zoomed in too fast when used with iron sights and 2.00x magnification
• Increased the throwing velocity of the Light AT Grenade to the same value as used by the Frag Grenade
• Improved accuracy and recoil of M1903 Experimental
• Made revolvers and the Howdah Pistol recover faster from dispersion
• Flares no longer set the player on fire immediately after firing them while looking down
• Reduced the damage of mortar shells when hitting an object immediately after firing
• Fixed Martini-Henry dealing too much damage to most body parts. It is now affected by a 0.9 multiplier to the lower torso and upper arms and a 0.75 multiplier to the legs and forearms, like the other rifles with sweet-spot mechanics
• Martini-Henry now resupplies 5 bullets at a time
• Reduced No.3 revolver reload time from 2.666 s to 2.3 s
• Increased No.3 rate of fire from 150 rpm to 164 rpm
• Reduced Repetierpistole M1912 aimed stationary dispersion from 0.4 to 0.3
• Reduced Repetierpistole M1912 horizontal recoil from 0.8 to 0.5
• Increased Hellriegel first shot recoil multiplier from 1.8 to 2.0
• Increased Hellriegel horizontal recoil from 0.76 to 0.8
• Reduced MP18 first shot recoil multiplier from 2.1 to 1.8
• Improved shotgun crosshair size and scaling
• Sawed-Off shotgun now resupplies 4 rounds at a time
• Reduced 12g Automatic dispersion increase per shot from 0.3 to 0.15
• Fix for dispersion of Model 10-A Hunter decreasing too quickly
• Fix for dispersion of Model 10-A Factory decreasing too slowly
• Moved up damage drop-off from M97 Trench Gun Hunter, Model 10-A Factory and Hunter by 1
• Reduced 12g Automatic post reload delay from 0.5 to 0.3
• Improved hip fire of M1903 Experimental
• Changed SMGs and LMGs to use damage curves
• Huot, Lewis, M1909 and BAR minimum damage increased from 21 to 23
• LMG damage drop-off happens at farther distances
• Reduced effect of suppression on LMG vertical recoil
• Changed LMG base ADS dispersion increase per shot from -0.12 to -0.085 so they are slightly more accurate on the first shots
• Reduced Lewis horizontal recoil from 0.36 to 0.34
• Reduced Huot horizontal recoil from 0.32 to 0.16
• Reduced M1909 horizontal recoil from 0.3 to 0.24
• Changed post reload delays on Gewehr 98 from 0.4 to 0.8 to better match animations
• Changed post reload delays on SMLE from 0.8 to 0.6333 to better match animations
• Changed post reload delays on M1903 from 0.8 to 0.7 to better match animations

Gadgets

Mortars


We’ve reduced some of the inaccuracy added by the last update. Mortars will be more accurate when placed, and slightly more accurate during sustained fire. The damage amounts remain unchanged. We felt that it had become too difficult to hit even large targets like tanks, and the inaccuracy in combination with the damage adjustments to the airburst mortar reduced mortar effectiveness more than intended. In addition, in Hardcore players will now get the Large Map for aiming indirect fire weapons.Spotted players will not show on the map unless Minimap Spotting is enabled in Custom Games.

Syringe

We’ve added a short cool down between syringe uses and added the ability to ignore the cooldown if near an ammo crate. Together a Medic and a Support can team up to quickly revive a large amount of soldiers. The cool down is minor, and is intended to only prevent the near instant revive of several soldiers in a very short time. Reviving a single soldier is unaffected. We feel this is a good balance to prevent “revive trains” from a single Medic, while not reducing the usefulness of revive, with a bonus of additional teamplay.

Ammo & Medical Crates

Medic and Support players should find it much more reliable and useful to deploy their Large Ammo and Medical crates. We’ve added additional healing and resupply power to those crates, so they serve more teammates before being depleted and being destroyed. Additionally, we’ve added a feature that will deploy the crates at the player’s feet if the space immediately in front is blocked by an object or slope. This should drastically reduce, but not entirely eliminate, the situation where a crate fails to deploy. It is still possible for the player to occupy a space where the crate cannot be deployed, for example a very tight corner or a steep slope.

Explosive Icons

We’ve updated the in-world icons for explosives to properly reflect their team, and to fully scale over distance so they don’t unnecessarily dominate the field of view, especially at close range. We’ve also identified an issue whereby it can be difficult to determine if a nearby grenade is infront or behind the player. This update does not include a fix for the issue, but we hope to address it in the future. Finally, we’ve implemented proper scaling on the large crates for both medic and support players, so their icons are not as obstructive at longer ranges.

Hardcore

Thanks to the Community for their feedback on Hardcore mode, we’ve introduced some additional changes in this Custom Game. A large map is now available, as in the base game. In Hardcore the map is will not show the position of objectives, players, etc. We intend for players in Hardcore to only have UI interfaces for things a real soldier could reliably know, for example: how many grenades he has left, but not how many bullets are left in his magazine. For this reason, we have decided to continue down the path without having kill confirmations or a kill log in Hardcore. However, we have added Team Kill confirmations as a nod to the need of accessibility and player learning. In BF1 we changed Hardcore from the reduced health of BF4 to increased bullet damage, in order to retain balanced explosion damage. In this update we’ve adjusted the damage amount in Hardcore from 200% to 125% damage. While on paper this looks like a huge change, 125% damage will still create far more lethal up close damage, for all kits, but will prevent bolt action rifles from being one hit kill at all ranges vs all body types. Other weapons will retain their intended ranges, while still being far more lethal than the base game. These changes help us steer Hardcore down the path of feeling like a faster, meaner, more realistic base game

Stability& Performance

Stability and performance is always critical to us, and in this patch we’ve done a number of improvements to ensure a solid gameplay experience. Below are some of the major changes.

• Fixed an issue that caused a hang when pressing J/K/L on console keyboard
• Added a new Framerate Limiter option that limits the maximum framerate the game will run at to a specific amount. Limiting your framerate to a lower number can help improve performance if you are experiencing high CPU usage

Right, I tried Operations and its absolute BOBBINS compared to Conquest, first off is the ridiculously long load times (more than normal unbelievably) and secondly it doesnt match make or attempt to so you have matches that you just get mulched to death, I've never known a battlefield game in which I was spawn killed more. Conquest is simply more refined and has largely ironed out many niggles.

For console players the new update has changed some of the stick deadzone settings so I advise changing them to something that isn't gooseberry fool.
The deadzone is set to 22% and I've taken mine down to 11% and I've also increased the sensitivity by about 5% as well so it now plays more like how it did before as the new setting just felt terrible.

I had the worst 2 games ever with the new settings and I pretty much couldn't hit anything (not that I'm any good at the best of times but the new settings made any engagement with the enemy a death sentence) and it just wasn't nice to play and felt really odd.
You may like it but to me it felt like swimming in treacle.

I played after the update a few times and actually had better games than normal, only major problem was that I couldn't revive as fast as usual, takes a second or so now in between revives when have several lying around. I have to say most of my anger comes at my team mates in this.

1 guy capturing a point, our Tank SITS OUTSIDE CAPTURE POINT and shoots randomly INTO IT. I run by the tank and while looking for the goon get killed by a sniper, something that wouldn't happen if the strawberry floating tank just drove a meter into the zone! I get so enraged. This happens FAR too many times, at least once a game it happens, grow some balls and chance it. I run from point to point and yeah I get killed by rarely to I get killed more than I kill.

Then the gooseberry fool medics, played with a guy who was also a medic, I must have revived him 20times and not strawberry floating ONCE did he revive me, I mean jesus! I sent him a message just saying REVIVE PPL FFS! and he wrote back SORRY IVE NO MIC. What the actual strawberry float is he on about? there's a great big strawberry floating skull icon over my dead body! I'm getting angry just thinking about it! :lol: :fp: :x

I said there is no problem when I'm a medic, and that the biggest problem I find is that people respawn before I can save them and I get killed in the line of fire and it was just 1 guy.. a goon for sure.

This game with randoms is 99% frustration with hardly anyone using mics and thus teams running about with zero tactics or in an actual group.
Just being able to ask for back-up or some kind of group attack (most people ignore the objective given by the squad leader if he's even bothering) is beyond most teams.

Getting this for xmas on PS4, picked it over Titanfall 2 and Dishonoured 2 despite the higher price tag. Looking forward to the action packed single player campaign in a WW1 setting.

Never played a battlefield game either so should be very unique to me. The last shooter I bought was shadowfall.

They Shall Not Pass: A Glimpse Of The First Battlefield 1 Expansion

See how DICE Envisions the Upcoming New Maps

Releasing March 2017, They Shall Not Pass* will be the first Battlefield™ 1 expansion. Featuring all-new maps, new weapons, and the new playable French Army faction, They Shall Not Pass will truly expand the theater of all-out war.

Though we don’t want to give too much away at this point we have something special for you: concept exploration images from the DICE team. These images represent the studio’s vision of the battlefields you’ll encounter in They Shall Not Pass. Read on and learn what inspired the charred landscapes, muddy trenches, and close-quarter environments.

Around 1 million shells were fired in the opening barrage of the Battle of Verdun. This created massive forest fires around the fortified city and the battlefields surrounding it. Soldiers tell stories of being able to see these fires from far away. We really wanted to capture this initial fighting in a battle that came to be known as the Devil’s Anvil.

The initial fighting around Verdun quickly transformed villages like Samogneux and entire forests into shadows of their former self. Verdun turned into the longest battle of the war lasting 9 months which completely transformed it. We wanted our players to be part of these initial intense attacks in the cold February of 1916.

The stories of the heroic garrison inside of Fort Vaux inspired us deeply, they fought a tough battle for every inch in the dark in these underground corridors. Down here in the maze of dark galleries the French and Germans fought ferociously with grenades, flamethrowers, and poison gasses.

Some 40 million artillery shells were fired over the course of the battle at Verdun, pulverizing the ground, turning the earth into a shattered lunar landscape. And underneath some of these trenches, tunnels and underground fortresses provide for new experiences yet unexplored in Battlefield 1.

In contrast to Verdun the Battle of Soissons in late 1918 inspired us to create a new set of maps that captures the massive French tank assaults. The fighting revolves around key bridges over the Aisne River and something big lurks around the village of Fismes.

If you want a head start with They Shall Not Pass, a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass** will grant you this – and much more. Apart from two-week early access to all four expansions, the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass comes with priority server access, 20 new weapons, 14 free Superior Battlepacks, unique Dog Tags, and more.

Great game but real issues with the servers the last few days and also medics running past you and not reviving is the most frustrating thing ever.

Yep, so many people choose the medic class but fail to bother actually being a medic.
Not reviving people is counter productive as it's free points and helps the team but most just don't bother.

I am finding on PC that the medics are better than when the game launched.
