Just a heads up but in the next Battlefield V update we've got some changes happening that aren't mentioned in the release notes. First up, we've made some improvements to visibility.

We also have some fixes that we're hoping stick with regards to getting stuck on loading screens. There is also a fix going in for PS4 which looks to address low FPS.

More info on this shortly, but wanted to let you know.

    Why on earth not "document" them in the patch notes?

    I saw some changes to visibility earlier when I saw some player with red jackets on. Bleh.

    While I absolutely appreciate having an actual EA dev in the forums talking with us (seriously, this is really refreshing), why are there undocumented changes at all? Shouldn't we get a full list of what's coming?

    Or is it an issue with timing, where we just haven't seen the full list of what the patch entails?

    Here are the additional changes: http://eaassets-a.akamaihd.net/dice-commerce/Casablanca/Update_Notes/20190212-01/Battlefield_V_Chapter_2_Lightning_Strikes_Update_12022019_FINAL.pdf

    And how does this affect MMG players?

    First they removed suppression in beta which was the ONLY defense for MMG players.

    Then they nerfed the MMG's themselves with increased recoil and bullet spread, which keeps MMG players from killing at medium and up range.

    Then they buffed flares which affects MMG players the most because you can only be effective IF you are prone and into position.

    Now, they buff visibility which reduces the MMG players ability to attack first (which is necessary due to being prone and free head shot).

    Question Dice, what else is up your sleeves to kill the MMG portion of the support class? I would suggest you paint them hot pink and give them the shape of an elephant. If you want to remove the playstyle, stop pussyfooting around and just do it.

    Haven't you seen the hundreds of threads whining about "camping?" Apparently we're inundated now with old CoD players who want BF to be a run-and-gun circle jerk, and who don't understand the purpose of Support acting as area denial temporary gun emplacement.

    The days of BF actually using squad-based tactics is over, man. Unfortunately.

    Jesus Christ, more visibility ''improvements'' After last visibility ''improvements'' the light tone camouflages now actually glows in dark areas. This is not improvement, this is something else. Turn back Beta ''player visibility''

    So, even more nerfs to the Support class?

    And even more buffs to the run-and-gun playstyle (Assault)?
