Welcome to the December 17th edition of This Week in Battlefield V!
Let’s first kick off the week with the biggest news… Battlefield V’s original TTK values are coming back as we revert the latest TTK changes, reduce the need for a “Conquest Core” playlist, and not moving forward with a new “Core” playlist, as detailed in the latest Letter to the Community.
Outside of that, this week we finish up Chapter 1: Overture’s second in-game weekly mission as we pave way for the start of the Week 3 Mission that focuses on dealing mechanized damage by use of Vehicles and Classes. The third weekly mission will unlock the Selbstlader 1906 self-loading rifle, if all requirements are met.
Unlock the Selbstlader 1906 self-loading rifle in this week’s in-game mission!
As always, timing on these items can always shift, but we want to give you a glimpse into what we have planned so you can tune in as each beat goes live.
The third in-game Weekly Mission during Chapter 1: Overture goes live on Thursday at 00:00 UTC!
