DICE has announced the PC version of Battlefield 3 will be patched on December 6, and updates will include various bug fixes and balancing, along with the addition of colorblind mode and some of the Back to Karkand content, which will arrive in full on December 13. Bug fixes and tweaks are posted below, courtesy of Evil Avatar. Full patch notes can be found over on the Battlefield 3 website.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a problem where player who joined queuing on End of round got spawn screen stuck on screen, but unable to do anything with it until next round loaded
    Fixed a problem where TV guided missiles could be shot into its own helicopter and destroy it
    Added alternate HUD colors to help those with colorblindness
    Fixed a problem with smoke on land vehicles, Missiles should now miss more often
    Fixed a problem where the user was unable to revive two players that have the bodies one over the other
    Fixed a problem where you could get green flashes on screen

Balance Tweaks:

  • Fixed several weapons so they are properly suppressed and hide the player on the mini-map when fired.
    Tweaked Tactical Light so it is not as blinding over longer ranges.
    Tweaked the IRNV scope so it is limited to usage only at close range.
    Reduced the damage done to Armored Vehicles and Infantry from AA guns.
    Increased the damage RPGs and Tank shells do to AA vehicles.
    Slightly Increased the power of Fighter Jet Cannons against all vehicle targets, especially Helicopters.

    I thought the green flashes were a beta driver issue. It went away when I rolled back to the stable release.

    Still not really the fixes I’m looking for, but at least they’re active as always.

    How about just getting rid of the tactical light?

    I think all the tweaks are good, AA Vehicles were too strong against anything, the Tac Light is too damn bright and the IRNV scope is what everyone (including me) is using – so I hope that will change.

    All in all I am looking forward to the patch.
