Earlier this month, several players discovered an interesting exploit in Battlefield 1 that allows any plane to easily gain a temporary boost in speed.
All you have to do is double-tap brake and hold acceleration to zoom past others at an increased pace. This can be repeated after every few seconds to retain the boost. The unfair advantage is obviously apparent when climbing in altitude, where planes normally lose speed, and when diving to quickly find an angle on an enemy target.
Posting on Reddit earlier today, a player brought the exploit into the open again. This time, DICE took notice and confirmed that it is working on a fix. The developer refrained from mentioning any time-frame for the update but noted that it will arrive as soon as possible.
Until then, do not be surprise if you find pilots rushing all across the skies at abnormal speeds.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to receive a plethora of content in the remaining few months of the year. Turning Tides, the third expansion pack, is slated to arrive in December. Before that, the developer will be releasing the Operation Campaigns mode in November that strings together multiple Operations with unique rewards.
They Shall Not Pass and In the Name of the Tsar, the first and second expansion packs respectively, are already out for those interested in spending more on post-release content.
