Battlefield 4 Beta – Current Lists of Known Bugs / Issues

Here is a list of known bugs / issues that the Battlefield 4 Beta development team is currently looking into. It’s important to note that this is a dynamic list as more people play and report issues.


* We have received reports of Freezes and Crashes affecting the BF4 Beta client. Our team is currently investigating this matter and we will update you here as soon as we know more.
* If you are affected by a Freeze or a Crash upon joining a game, and the error message “BF4 Beta has stopped working” appears, please make sure your Windows is fully updated and your Graphic card is running on its latest driver. Alternatively, some players using GeForce drivers were able to fix this by downgrading their driver to an earlier version.

    There’s also flying boats:

    Beta is so fun! :)

    I’m concerned with too many snipers on all the tall buildings. It’s a low visibility game, so too much unnecessary movement is what gets you killed. Well, if all snipers have to do is find a nice perch and take it easy, that ruins the game for the flag takers.

  • ScreamFace

    I would count the horrible brightness contrast as another bug.

    It also runs like crap. I jumped into BF3 after some rounds and was amazed how crisp and smooth it was compared.

  • PescadoDeFuego

    On the Xbox 360, whenever i reload any of my weapons, it removes an entire magazines worth of ammo from my inventory/ It does this no matter what bullet count i have left in the magazine. From the game play I’ve seen on PC, this seems like a large bug.

    • Phobia256

      That is actually a server setting and not a bug. Though I believe it is only standard enabled for hardcore mode. I actually like the idea tbh, so you have to put in some thought when to reload or when not to.

      • SilverAryuu

        It is a bug, though. Every time I reload my shotgun, it takes up one entire clip of ammo per shell. Obviously not a server setting– or if it is, there’s something wrong. I’d be fine with hardcore ammo, but this isn’t hardcore ammo. It’s an error.

  • We beat England 4-1

    beta is a disaster and it looks horrendous on ps3.

  • Yamcha Hipo

    there iis a bug with the shot gun. when i use all the shells, and reload, my ammo count goes from 36 spare too 0 spare. so i am using 6 shells for each shell i put in the gun.

  • Weeshnaw

    On PC, the containers in Domination are messed up. If you are close to the ends while they are still closed, you can still be shot.

    Plus, laggy as hell and unplayable.

    • ScreamFace

      Also you can close them from the inside and if you’re not far enough into the crate, it closes and puts you on the outside.

  • kurzweilfreak

    I have a bug where after joining a server or between matches, during the game loading screen, a few times my Xbox has frozen up and had to be turned off and back on again. I don’t know if this is a problem with just Battlefield 4 or with my Xbox itself. Anyone know how I can troubleshoot this?
