Battlefield V Quality of Life Commitment


Hey Battlefield V Community,

With Battlefield V available worldwide and the Tides of War live service in full swing, it's important that we continue to pour our passion into continued improvement of the base game in parallel to development of upcoming content. Our commitment to Battlefield V's quality of life will result in a more enjoyable gameplay experience day-in and day-out, while fortifying the great game that BFV is as we introduce new experiences through the Tides of War Chapters. Inherently, this also allows for a strong dialog between the Battlefield team and you, the community.

We are laser-focused on addressing many of the outstanding bugs that we've identified internally, and which have been reported to us from within our community. We dig into these below.

Issue Identification and Communication Process
But before we dive into the top issues that we're working on this week, it's important to detail the process in which we identify, prioritize, and begin to address them. The process we've adopted is as follows:
  • Identify Issues – Pulling from all sources to determine all outstanding game issues, including and not limited to social channels, customer support teams, direct from the community, in-game data, internal bug trackers, community-maintained bug trackers, etc.
  • Define Severity – Determine severity of each issue based on the number of players affected and the impact to systems (economy, retention, game experience, etc.).
  • Weekly Syncs – Community and Development teams meet frequently to circle on latest issues, set priorities, and establish timelines.
  • Community Communication – Provide the community with insight on issues we are prioritizing for the week and an ETA on proposed fix.
  • Issue Resolution Communication – Once we've resolved an issue, we'll let you know!

Top Issues for Week of February 11th
Below are the top issues we are committed to resolving with details on when you can expect a fix to be implemented.
Please note, we are limiting this list to the top 5 -10 issues we’ve prioritized. So, you may not see an issue that you feel should be on this list for the week. Rest assured, we are working on improving Battlefield V in many other areas alongside the issues mentioned here.

  • End of Round screen not reporting correct Company Coin gained
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: We are hard at work on this one, and we have a potential fix that we are currently testing internally. We think that we can release this one with a backend update, so once we have confirmed that it works internally, we should be able to release this one fairly quickly.
  • Tiger Tank skin reward does not unlock when collecting all the letters in the single player campaign
  • Combined Arms - Hot pursuit mission changes the requirements on the basis of difficulty, causing players unable to finish the mission
    • Platforms Affected: PS4
    • Status: On this mission players are required to kill a certain amount of guards depending on the difficulty that they play, however there are only 20 guards to kill while the game expects the player to kill 21 and 22 guards depending on the difficulty. This causes the players to be unable to progress the mission. We are currently investigating this issue.
  • Ping spikes after the Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes Update #2
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: We have an ongoing initiative where we are trying to get more people to play the game at the same time in these regions to hopefully get things going for them locally so that they can get better ping.
  • Players do not get the company coins upon completion of Combined Arms
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: We are currently investigating this issue.

  • UI - The Parrot Camera is flickering when user reaches the Squad Spawn Screen
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: Status: We have a fix coming with the next update.
  • Loading screen hangs between map loads
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13. If you're still experiencing this, please reach out.
  • Squad Lock Returned with Update 2.2
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: This has been fixed as of Feb 14.
  • Performance issues since recent Update #2
    • Platforms Affected: PlayStation 4
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13. If you're still experiencing this, please reach out.
  • Re-enable ability to purchase past Tides of War weapon rewards (now that Company Coin accrual issue is resolved)
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: Fixed on Feb 13.
  • Ammo Crates and Health Crates fall through the floor
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13.
  • Occasionally a player spawns with no weapon (entire Players upper-body is invisible on client side only. They can still fire their weapons.)
    • Platforms Affected: All
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13.
  • The Flakpanzer AA is too powerful against aircrafts
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13.
  • Frontlines not showing up in the server browser
    • Status: Fixed with Update 2.2 on Feb 13.

As we make progress on the issues above, we'll update this thread with pertinent information. With each week behind us, we'll continue updating this list with the most recent issues we're prioritizing, so please bookmark and check back regularly to get the latest details.

We are dedicated to resolving the issues that impact your gameplay experiences, and we humbly need your assistance by letting us know what's affecting you and to provide us with as much information as you can so we can investigate possible solutions. You can report any issues you come across by submitting a bug report on the EA Answers HQ portal.

We thank you for your continued support of Battlefield V.
