Learn how Battlefield 4's new suppression mechanic works  

The Battlefield 4 spring patch is bringing a major change to Battlefield 4's controversial suppression system.

The suppression mechanic will be changed yet again in Battlefield 4. The upcoming spring patch intends to remove the effect of suppression at optimal and effective ranges of fire, and only allow it in the falloff range and beyond.

According to DICE LA, this will now make it a way for players to change their position safely, but not to throw off their enemy's aim at ranges where skills should matter.

But how does this affect you? Westie is here to explain it in layman's terms, and tell you what his experience with the new change has been in CTE.
