Hi folks,

We have an update rolling out tomorrow (7th August) that will look to eliminate the most common cause of crashing across all platforms, alongside an additional and separate fix for Practice Range. This update otherwise adds no additional content, or makes further changes to Battlefield V.

This update is anticipated to clock in at around the 800MB on PC, 500MB on Xbox One and 450MB on PS4. 

Deployment for this update will start in line with our usual schedule, and we won't require any downtime to drop these updates:


  • PC -       1AM PT // 4AM ET // 9AM BST // 10AM CEST

  • PS4 -     2AM PT // 5AM ET // 10AM BST // 11AM CEST

  • Xbox -   3AM PT // 6AM ET // 11AM BST // 12PM CEST


What’s Changed?

  • Eliminated the most common cause of crashing on all Platforms, across all game modes

  • Separately fixed a different issue, addressing a hard crash in Practice Range when interacting with Planes 


A Note Concerning PC Downloads for this Update


One thing that we observed during our internal testing was that the download speed dropped significantly once the update hit 95%. The update will otherwise download at your usual speeds until you reach 95%. We're actively investigating this in case the issue is set to persist when we flip the switch tomorrow morning (it could just be a unique issue relating to our internal testing). In the event that you do encounter this, our best advice is to wait it out rather than attempting to restart the patching process as you won't see it behave any differently a second time around. 

The Update is estimated at around 800MB in size on PC, so this will only affect the last 40MB or thereabouts, which is likely to download at around 100kb/s irrespective of your internet speed, or the rate at which the rest of the update downloaded at. We're going to work on this one through the rest of the day with our teams across EA to see if we can fix this, and will provide further updates should we learn anything new. Given what the update otherwise fixes, we ask for your patience on the slower download, rather than delay the update itself whilst we investigate that. Ultimately, the update will download and install correctly.

    I played yesterday about an hour without any crash, but something else happened. Something is wrong with hit detection or damage calculation. Form update scope perspective it should not have an impact on what I described below, but this is what I observed yesterday after this patch:

    -       Many times, while I died I have seen short direction indicated from 2 opposite to each other direction at once. I am quite sure that only one player could shoot me at that time

    -       Multiple instant deaths without hearing and seeing bullets.

    -       Half of my deaths was look like single bullet kills, when they should not be like that

    -       I noticed that I killed multiple times just respawned opponents firing only 2 bullets aiming to the body (Ag m42) – I am pretty sure none else was shooting to the same player at that time

    After hour of frustration I sync some other platoon companions and they confirm same observation. Hard to say that suddenly we have seen sever full of hacker. Day before I played around 3 hours and I did not observe such issues.

    Seem like many time bullets damaged was counted twice. Perfect reality for “campers”.

    After an update about a month ago i had crashing without error and stuttering. Repaired the game and its all gone. Maybe it'll help maybe not but this usually solves the problem.

    Game crashes when try to join some maps. Marita for sure. Some games I can join, but most of the times the games crashes in loading screen before the map loading screen shows

    I didn't notice any crashes or freezes. I play on 1080p 240 Hz monitor (GSync Turned Off). I play with STG-44 and last night I played for more than 2 hours. I played around 6 maps and in all maps, I was experiencing more horizontal and random recoil on STG-44. It was harder to control. As per the notes, the guns should continue performing the same. But during the entire session, I was experiencing changed gun recoil pattern. Anyone else noticed any such issues with their favorite gun?

    Turn of the Network Graph (Under Gameplay option) from the menu and see what value changes when you experiene this freeze episode. Based on the value, you would be able to troubleshoot well.

    Did you change your FOV by any chance? I read somewhere that a wider FOV reduces visual recoil while a narrower one increases it.

    Crouching reduces recoil as well.

    Didn't have crashes before but now I do. It crashes to desktop, a lot of the time I can't even get into a game because it crashes, but when I do I play a map or 2 and it crashes when map changes. 

    I will try repairing the game and see if that helps.
