DICE released a new Battlefield 4 patch this morning for the Playstation 4 version of the game which focuses on the one-hit-kill bug that has been swamping the game recently.
Although the patch was due out on Monday but it was delayed by the developer insisting that they needed “additional testing” on it before it went live. Also, if some of you had been booted from ongoing game, rest assured it was only because the patch hit.
Now do not expect this patch to change the game’s stability or other issues that you expected to be improved.
DICE has clarified that this quick update was made just to cater to that bug specifically. As far as the issue about dying without knowing who killed you is concerned, it is a different matter.
“The issue of dying before you saw who shot you is a different beast,” according to the post. “We use a term called Interpolation in reference to where you are in the game world. There are instances where the death camera is initiated before the correct internet packets have arrived to be interpolated by your camera,” reads the official announcement post.
This gives the impression that you were killed by ‘one shot’ as someone came around the corner of a building. We have identified this issue and will address it in upcoming updates
Other problems being faced by the Battlefield 4 players include crashes on PlayStation 4 as well as Xbox One. To cater to these and other issues, another extensive patch is bound to be released soon on these platforms.
