Hi Battlefield V Community,

Launching a massive game like Battlefield V is equally exciting as it is challenging. Our teams have worked incredibly hard to get Battlefield V to a playable state that's rewarding and smooth.

However, some bugs and issues may have made it into a shipped build, and there may be some that crop up that we didn't catch. The beauty of thriving community and a live game means that when the two work together it results in the quick acknowledgement of issues, and hopefully hasty resolutions of them.

Hot Issues

All Platforms
  • Footstep Audio
  • We know there’s been some issues with the footstep audio.
  • Status: We’re currently testing proposed updates and hope to roll these out soon.
  • Panzerfaust Improvements Confusion
  • We realize we put a lot of emphasis on the elements we "buffed" with the Panzerfausts and not enough about the “nerfs”. The maximum damage of the Panzerfaust has dropped. In all normal cases, the Panzerfaust will take more hits to kill all tanks, making tanks more survivable. The 5 damage hits were only rare edge cases of poor hits (less than 10 damage). Yes, while they are 3x better now, it's still only approximately 15 damage. When hitting a tank on its side, we've dropped the damage from approx. 50 to an estimated 25. From the rear, you used to be able to 2-shot a tank - now it takes at least 3 hits.
  • New Skin Prices
  • We’ve received reports that the Company Coin prices for some skins are quite high.
  • Status: We are taking a look at all prices and adjusting appropriately.
  • Not Getting the Tiger I Skin for Completing War Story: The Last Tiger
  • Status: We’re currently investigating. Hold tight!
  • Company Coin Accrual at Max Rank 50
  • At max Rank 50, players are not properly accruing Company Coin. Apologies for misinforming you that outstanding Company Coin issues have been resolved with a recent proposed fix. It's apparent that this is not the case.
  • Status: We are currently investigating the issue further to identify the root cause. Once we've found a fix we will inform you of a fix ETA. We're also investigating retroactive awarding the Company Coin you may have missed while being Rank 50.
  • Company Coin Retroactive Award (to be completed)
  • Status: We’re currently investigating a proposed fix that will retroactively award players who reached Max Rank 50 prior to a proposed Max Rank 50 Company Coin accrual fix (the previous issue did not allow Max Rank 50 to accrue Company Coin anymore). This retroactive award will credit player inventories with the appropriate Company Coin for time spent in game at Max Rank 50 where players were not receiving new Company Coin. Apologies on previously communicating that the retroactive award was processed – there was a miscommunication between teams. Thanks for the understanding.
  • Inconsistent tracking of the Tides of War assignments
  • On some servers, there is inconsistent tracking of Tides of War assignments that results in not being able to complete the mission
  • Status: Currently investigating

Xbox One & PlayStation 4
  • Controller Vibrations are Not Working on Grand Operations
  • Controller vibrations do not work when playing Grand Operations.
  • Status: We’ve identified the issue and will be fixed in an upcoming update.
