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 not 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.

Battlefield V Known Issues

All Platforms

  • Amazon offers in various regions missing / unavailable
  • When viewing the various Amazon stores, certain editions (or the product in general) does not appear to be listed, or shows as unavailable.
  • Status: Fix coming on worldwide launch.

  • Soldier / Clothing bundles / sets are unclear as to what they contain
  • When viewing the contents of the Soldier bundles in the Armory, it is not clear that the bundle contains both the base Torso and Leg items, but also the Rare variants. Instead, the impression is given that the legs and torso are listed twice in error.
  • Status: Fix coming post-launch.
  • Blued Set of STEN unlocks grip part instead of hand guard part as stated in its description
  • Blued Set for Sten unlocks Muzzle Barrel Receiver Magazine and GR
    IP instead of handguard
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Medic Self-Healing Representation
  • When self-healing as a Medic, and recently looting a fallen enemy’s ammo pouch, the self heal animation sometimes uses the incorrect pouch (ammo instead of health). Healing still occurs as it should though.
  • Status: Fix coming post-launch.
  • Issues with Medic Revival
  • Reports of inabilities to revive on server.
  • Status: Currently investigating a prioritized fix.

Dog Tags & Emblems
  • Missing Alpha/Beta Dog Tags or Emblems
  • We’re working on making sure all players who should have these get them as soon as possible. We’ll be fixing this automatically as soon as we can, and we’re sorry for the delay.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

General Gameplay
  • Conquest Catch-Up Mechanics
  • We’re listening! We’ve noticed that the comeback mechanics for losing teams have been too aggressive and put the winning team at an unfair advantage in close matches reaching the end of the round. Thus, we are balancing the mechanics and improving them to have no effect in these matches that are ending in close rounds, but only affecting the matches in which one team is being fully run over – as these are the ones we intended to make more interesting for both teams with the system. We are going to keep an eye on this and will adjust it further based on community feedback.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Frontlines - Bomb(s) (on Devastation only)
  • One of the bombs may be hard/impossible to pick up for one of the teams. Worst outcome is that the match will continue in “HQ Attack” mode until the timer runs out.
  • Status: Fix being deployed in BFV 11142018 update.

  • Reinforcement menu sticking
  • If you have the Reinforcement menu open when entering a vehicle, it may get stuck on your screen. While we’re working on this one, try to make sure you close the menu before spawning into a vehicle.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Missing pre-order or edition items
  • In-game rewards are available on PC from November 9, and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from November 15. Check our article to find out how and where to claim your items in-game. If you’re sure you’re missing something, try restarting the game and checking again. If it’s still not there, contact us for help.
  • Status: Resolution proposed above."]Missing pre-order or edition items

  • Australian players being added to a queue then when they get to the server are immediately kicked
  • Status: We cannot reproduce this issue. Please see if this continues to happen when the new BFV 11142018 update goes live.
  • "Missing Online Access"
  • Players are prompted with the "Missing Online Access" message at the main menu.
  • If the players don’t have any account infractions, this can often times be resolved by turning off DX12 in the video settings.
  • If that doesn’t work, they can still go ahead and contact support.
  • Status: Currently investigating.
  • The player doesn't get any EoR between rounds when the player joins a server outside of region
  • When the round ends, the best squad screen shows up but it is never followed by an EoR leaving the player in a black loading screen.
  • Status: Currently investigating.

  • Can’t join from the social screen with a full squad
  • We’re sorry, but this bug is proving tough to vanquish. If you have a full squad please join matches through the server selection screen instead.
  • Status: Current investigating. Please let us know if this isn't resolved with the improvements deployed in the BFV 11142018 update.

  • When you reach Max Rank you no longer earn Company Coin.
  • We have identified an issue where players that have reached max rank are no longer awarded Company Coins. Players can still earn them with Special Assignments and Daily Orders.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

User Interface
  • Platoon tag is not visible in game chat
  • Platoon tag doesn't appear in game chat near User's name.
  • Status: Current investigating.

  • Spawning into Top Turret (Tanks)
  • When squad spawning into a tank, ending up in the top turret position, sometimes you'll end up with an incorrect representation of your weapon and arms (they don't follow your aim). Shooting still works fine, but visually it looks off.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.
  • Planes - Bomber Issues - There are various issues with bombers that we are addressing in an upcoming update:
  • Re-supply positions are too close to the infantry combat area, they will be moved to the edge of the flight radius.
  • Re-supply time is instant when flying through the re-supply position, combined with the above players can make loops bombing the field. The Beta had a reload, but it was broken and we addressed it in feedback by eliminating it entirely. It was necessary to balance and we will fix it and reinstate the reload timer since simply flying to the re-supply point has proven inadequate to address the frequency issue.
  • Flak damage vs. bombers should be increased. Bombers have a reduced Flak damage, making them harder to take down due to them being bigger and easier targets. Unfortunately this reduction is simply too much, so we will increase the damage Flak does to the bomber classes. Feedback is clear that fighters are already plenty vulnerable to Flak, and no change is currently needed to those planes. Additionally we will fix some bugs with Flak that caused bombers flying directly away from a Flak to be invulnerable to the flak damage. Since this is a combined effect we are being careful not to over buff flak vs bombers, since they will take damage in a more consistent manner with the bug fix.
  • Restrict plane spawning in beginning of round to prevent an immediate bombing of the clumped up group of players in their scripted spawn.
  • Status: Fixes coming in an upcoming update.
  • Planes - Fighters Balance
  • Balance rockets, less tank damage, less AoE to require them to be the precision weapons we intended. We believe that bombs themselves are in a good spot, not needing any emergency fixes. We will monitor the situation and evaluate additional changes.
  • Status: Currently investigating.


  • Artifact flickering present on the faces of the soldiers
  • Issue occurs for both factions and also occurs in Front-End
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Cannot purchase the grifter skins and the rest of the aviator colors
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Stuck on black loading screen with loading spinner when joining Narvik - Airborne - via matchmaking tile
  • Status: Upcoming BFV 11142018 should fix majority of crash issues. Please notify us if you experience any other crashes.
  • Joining on a Grand operation during transition causes a crash / Cannot connect to a server on Grand Operations
  • Status: Upcoming BFV 11142018 should fix majority of crash issues. Please notify us if you experience any other crashes.
  • User crashes when attempting to join a server with a squad
  • Status: Upcoming BFV 11142018 should fix majority of crash issues. Please notify us if you experience any other crashes.
  • Grand Operations / Conquest - User gets disconnected to FrontEnd If the user is in loading screen when the pre-round breaks
  • Status: Upcoming BFV 11142018 should fix majority of crash issues. Please notify us if you experience any other crashes.

  • Micro-Stuttering
  • If you’re running on Direct X 12 and seeing microstuttering in-game, go into the Video settings in-game and toggle Direct X 12 off. Ignore the pop-up, exit back to the options screen, then restart your game.
  • Microstuttering can also be down to a driver issue, whether it’s a driver conflict or the latest driver for your graphics card not working well with Battlefield V. If you’ve already tried a clean reinstall of your graphics drivers, you may just need to wait for a new driver to fix it.
  • Status: Fix coming in an upcoming update.

  • Status: Resolution proposed above.
