Battlefield 1 Apocalypse Bug Fixed With Emergency Update

Apocalypse, the last expansion for Battlefield 1 has just dropped last week, with it though come some performance issues that DICE had to address right away. A Battlefield 1 Apocalypse bug update is now live, fixing the aforementioned problem.

The issues are experienced when earning rewards after a match, causing dips in the game’s performance. DICE and Electronic Arts addressed the issue right away, letting people know they’re releasing an emergency update to fix it.

What the fix is about is reducing the demand on the rewards system by making changes to the new Service Assignments. As the blog post states “You will no longer need to complete 5 of the Staying Focused Assignments to begin working towards Assignments in the Climbing The Ranks category.”

In order to keep the same level of difficulty, the Service Assignments that unlock Afflictions have been moved underneath some of the Climbing The Ranks Assignments, serving as a soft gate before gaining access to the Afflictions.


  • Fixed an issue where players were experiencing a momentary dip in performance whenever earning points in a match.
  • Fixed an issue where the Hellriegel 1915 Factory was missing sights.
  • Fixed an issue where the Hellriegel 1915 Defensive was missing the optical sight

You may be wondering though, will my progress in Affliction Assignments be wiped after the Battlefield 1 Apocalypse Bug update? The answer is no, any progress made on the Affliction Assignments will not be lost, and you will still have any Afflictions you have already unlocked.

There are five new maps in the new Apocalypse DLC, a new mode, and plenty of new weapons inspired by the World War 2 era.

In related news,  DICE video editor Randy Evens revealed very that the upcoming “Battlefield 2018 reveal trailer is underway” on Twitter. While there were no extra details given we can at least be sure that with the reveal trailer, a lot of speculations will be put to rest.
