This week is ready to go, and we've got a new Weekly Challenge featuring a new version of Conquest. Let's get to it!

We're changing the format to be a little leaner, a little cleaner, and to showcase some community creations. No more Highlights section (all that info is in the This Week in Battlefield V breakdown.) Also, if you'll notice the image above - this was taken in-game by redditor u/Deathstalker131 (and it's appropriate for this week as this map will be featured in our Tides of War Weekly Storyline for the mode Grind.)

    Any time frame as to when the armory will be updated? And are the German helmets going to be fixed or will they remain the Hungarian M38?

    @Braddock512 : Can you add this bug to the QOL tracker, please? Thanks.

    Problem:
    When hitting an enemy as Recon with Selbstlader 1906, enemy does not spot.

    Solution:

    The bug happens because Selbstlader 1906 is incorrectly set as a Semi-Auto Rifle instead of as a Self-loading Rifle.

    This can be seen inside the game via Profile -> Statistics -> Weapons, where Selbstlader 1906 shows up as a Semi-Auto Rifle.

    The solution is for a developer to set Selbstlader 1906 as a Self-loading Rifle.

    Seems like an incredibly easy fix, but this bug has been present since the Selb was introduced months ago. Just another example of the incredibly lazy programming that is now standard at DICE.
    This is part of the reason I don't play BFV any more. The main reason is the pathetic lack of bug fixes and constant introduction of new bugs and things the community doesn't want.
    Case in point, flying sucks now. I'll check back for the next couple of months to see if it's fixed. If not, I'm moving on (not that anyone cares, but it feels good to vent).
    Been a big fan of the series since BF1942. I'm not willing to play any more DICE games that are even close to being as unfinished as BFV was at launch. The state of BFV at launch was seriously disgraceful. No wonder so many DICE employees left.

    I wonder what will make Grind any different from the two 3-flag conquest modes we already have in the game.

    Only 2 uniforms in the armoury and boins only.what happened to uniforms through progression.It's like your not really bothered anymore,this game had so much potential it's a shame to see where its heading.Any news on a date release for greece or is that another soon we can't talk about that yet.what's happening about raising rank as that was spoken about months ago,and now it's gone all quiet.where is the tank customization still no news on that,and i sure hope that won't be boins only.some players have over one hundred thousand cc with nothing to spend them on this needs to be sorted fast.Like I've said before i love the game but I'm beginning to play other games now,i had faith in this game on release,but now im beginning to see the true light,and that's a shame.

    If you look ahead in the Chapter 3 of ToW, tank customization is coming. Some Weekly Rewards are full tank body customizations.

      Yay! A feature promised at launch only took 5 months to incorporate.
