Battlefield 4 R33 Server Update To Fix Death Shield Bug

By   /   Apr 29, 2014

If you have played Battlefield 4, then you must know of an incredibly annoying bug called the Death Shield, which turns revive able players into an invisible shield, thus blocking all of your projectiles.

It’s a well known issue and DICE has finally released R33 server update to fix it. In addition to the shield bug fix, number of new changes and fixes will also be made in the upcoming update which you can read in detail below:

Announcements:

  • You now only need 2 members of the Platoon playing in the same round to get stats and earn XP for your Platoon. At the same time, we have tweaked the algorithm for how Platoons earn XP, so playing with more Platoon members in the same round will provide additional XP bonus.

Features & Improvements:

  • Platoons has been moved to the main header menu, replacing Missions. Missions is now found in the Multiplayer dropdown.
  • Loadout Presets now has a minimum character limit of 1, instead of 3
  • The name of vehicles is now displayed below all earned vehicle unlocks in Battle Reports
  • Various minor tweaks and improvements

Fixes:

  • Various fixes for the Soldier Portraits, including adding the 4 missing portaits and properly marking the unlock criteria
  • Fixed an issue in the forums where incorrect wordwrapping was applied in Firefox
  • Fixed an issue where chat messages would sometimes disappear (but could be restored by refreshing the page)
  • Fixed an issue with Service Star Battlepacks not being displayed with the correct unlock values
  • Fixed an issue where going from Platoon Reports to your own Battle Reports page, or vice versa, would cause the page not to load
  • Fixed various issues with incorrect unlock criteria shown in Loadout
  • Fixed an issue with the Loadout Presets dropdown that didn’t always correctly reset
  • Fixed some Loadout Presets error messages that weren’t shown
  • Fixed an issue with some Platoon defined website links not working properly, e.g. when using https
  • Fixed an issue where viewing a Battle Pickup in Stats -> Weapons showed a “View accessories” button
  • Fixed a Firefox-specific audio issue (related to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=987889) [bugzilla.mozilla.org]
  • Fixed an issue where the tooltip for closing Group Chats wouldn’t disappear after closing the chat
  • Added some missing translations in the Server Browser
  • Various minor fixes

R33 Server Update Notes:

  • General stability improvements
  • Fix for the “Death Shield” bug that could cause dead players to act as an invisible shield, blocking projectiles
