Battlefield 1 patch 1.05 was released just before 2016 ended, and surprisingly enough the patch appears to have launched free of any major problems, something that hasn’t happened in a very long time, especially when it comes to Battlefield 1. The patch is intended to boost the game’s performance, and it seems to be doing just that.
The new patch originally came out on December 13, and is intended to keep the game’s performance at a high quality with the release of the Giant’s Shadow map, a map where players fight in the shadow of a crashed German zeppelin on the Western Front. The game also adds a spectator mode, so that if the game is too full for you to play you can still watch how it progresses.
Numerous classes and vehicles and game modes have also been implemented, such as the “Standard Issue Rifle” game mode, which allows every player, regardless of class, to have the standard rifle of the faction that they’re playing (which means every British soldier would get a rifle, every German soldier would get a rifle, and so on and so on.)
Movement and aim assist have also been tweaked, so that players now have to actually be aiming at something to get aim assist to help them, and players will also now be able to sprint out of crouching or prone, along with fixing issues in toggle zooming.
Other adjustments to the game with Battlefield 1 patch 1.05 includes fixing a character getting the incorrect kit when they spawn into a vehicle, various adjustments to weapons and gadgets (such as mortars, anti-tank rifles, and more), and the aforementioned stability and performance improvements.
