Battlefield 3: Armored Kill patch increases Rush Gunship spawn time

Developer DICE has listed a number of upcoming fixes for its shooter Battlefield 3's recently released Armored Kill DLC pack, including balancing tweaks.

The pack, which is currently only available to PlayStation 3 Battlefield 3 premium members, will be releasing for Xbox 360 and PC premium members tomorrow before being made available to the general public later this month.

DICE's Gustav Halling detailed the following fixes, which are being primed to go live "late this week (Thursday/Friday) or early next week (Monday/Tuesday) for all platforms". The patch will be a server-side update, so users shouldn't have to do anything to apply the changes.

The list of fixes are mentioned below.

  • Mobile Artillery: The Mobile artillery's "Proximity Defense" unlock is causing players to "suicide" when being used in both vehicles with higher reprorate in the US HIMARS.
  • Gunship in Rush: Defenders have been having a hard time winning the last week and we are making tweaks to even out the battlefield. The Gunship will respawn after 90 seconds instead of 60 seconds in Rush after being destroyed.
  • Alborz Mountains Conquest Large (PC only): On conquest large there is a bug where the Russian attack helicopter doesn't show up in the spawn menu. It is however spawned in so either drive down to it or use a airplane as a "spawner" closer to it.

Thanks, CVG.
