Grenades also appear to be getting nerfed:

Meanwhile Branvall addressed issues with Battlefield 4′s spectator mode:

What do you make of the above? Are you keen to see what new changes the team brings? Let us know below.

    Battlefield 4 has been broken for more then 60days now, I don’t think we need to be getting “teased” on wether or not they’ll be able to continue to fix a game I spent £55 on. Dreadful.

    Good stuff, MAA and Helis do need a rebalance (+portable AA).


    It’s still excellent kid, I haven’t had a crash since Christmas, the balancing’ll just make it even better.

    sounds good they should tweak the weaker and the better guns

    I am glad to hear they will hopefully buff the DMRs. The things really aren’t strong enough to contend with faster firing weapons, nor are they accurate enough.

    Also glad they are looking at RGO and v40s. Those are used way too frequently.

    @6 Ah thanks. I wouldn’t know what to tweak. I imagine they’ll tweak the planes. Maybe I don’t know how to use them effectively, but the attack is world’s better than the stealth plane. To the point that maybe to stealth planes should just be pulled. To be honest they don’t make a lot of sense being in the game anyway.

    so there gonna reduce the mobile AA to nothing like in the last game. cool…not. Is it over powered? yeah a little bit, but im sure its gonna get super Nerffed and become useless. Then its gonna be way to many air vehicles going unchecked. They need to turn up vehicle spawn times too while there at it… so maps have so many that when on the ground and you take one out same guy comes right back with another tank/ect.

    The amount of snipers and engineers are outrageous still depending on the map/game mode. Stingers have to much range, pull bolt action snipers fire too fast, almost as fast as dmr.
