  • Jemil

    And the game will still be fuckn broken.

  • Jesse Krupnick

    What about the campaign freezing over and over? I still have yet to beat it ONE time.

  • BullShooter

    wait what. There was a MAV glitch?

  • gordonthafreeman

    what about the campaign stats never saving, game freezing while in a little bird passenger seat, GUN SKINS TAKING A FUCKING MINUTE TO LOAD DURING WHICH YOU CANNOT AIM DOWN THE SIGHT, dying around corners consisntently, and abosolute GARBAGE hitboxes

    i love this game but i have no fucking idea why these idiots are spending their time making sure it says “DRAW” when you tie a game of conquest or making sure player tags fit on dogtags instead of fixing genuine issues that ACTUALLY IMPACT THE FUNCTIONING OF THE FUCKING GAME.

    I didnt pay 60 bucks for this fuckery

    • DannyKirk92

      Ive lost my campaign mode save 6 times, lost all my guns and upgrades online, half the time i cant even get online it just brings a black loading screen, all the same for many people and there only bothering with the little details in the update? SORT YOUR GAME OUT PROPERLY FFS got myself a £50 beer matt so far -_-

    • Oliver S

      Calm down dude, they’ll fix your problems eventually. Until then enjoy what you love about it.

      • NLK3

        Part of the problem is that you buy a game to get the full experience. What you love about the game gets interrupted by these annoying issues, and they are taking too long. For me to get this from Gamefly and something like the black screen is here months after release, something I’d assume is plaguing players that do die after the VIP checkpoint, keeps me form enjoying the rest of the game. Two levels isn’t enough for people to enjoy this game after they may have payed $60 for it.

    • Big-_-Pun

      Does update start on its own

  • Ryan

    The worst is when you are in cover and get killed behind a wall or when you clearly hit a corner and are out of range yet bullets continue to score kills

    • Him

      Yeah! This one wasn’t so bad but has started to happen very often now. I got sniped a good 15ft around a corner once…was blown away by how ridiculous it was.

  • Kamikaze Watermelon

    I have a PS4. It wont go past the first loading screen now. How do I fix this broken mess?

    • tmoneymalone

      Same problem here as well. I’m so frustrated :/

      • Richard Marshall

        Yes me too, can’t get past the first loading screen. Thought I was the only one in the world with this problem so relieved it’s not just me.

  • MonsterG916

    That’s a cool story bro, NOW FIX THE FUCKING SHIT WHERE YOU SPAWN WITH THE STARTING WEAPONS…… Faggots

    • Him

      Pleeaaaase fix! Ill get on all stoked to play and then join a game to find I have not unlocked anything. Ill try a new server, then restart the app, then restart my system, and still no guns. When I finally get them i’m too annoyed to play.

  • energize

    add the fuckin invite to game …

  • KeN

    Nothing about the campaign resetting?? Epic fail dice! At least acknowledge to me that it’s a problem and whether or not you are working on it

  • RunDmc

    FIX THE FUCKING LAG! FIX THE FUCKING LAG. FIX THE FUCKING LAG. FIX THE FUCKING LAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And no sound when the starts plz!!!! 100+ dollars for this????

    • Matt1979

      Try lowering your network smoothing factor to 30 its under options. It works for me the game runs smooth as silk. Sometimes I have to bump it up to 40 if I notice textures are not rendering correctly. I play on PS 4…I hope I helped you? :)

    • Anthony

      I called Sony and their fix worked some, not 100% but way more then what I was getting before with lag & freezing. Delete all the BF4 game data from your system then boot your system in Safe mode select option 3 if im not mistaken and let it restore any corrupt files. Took aboit 10-15 minutes but well worth it. Side note the sound is still an issue at start

  • Patrikvk

    For the campaign: If you want to play the campaign before the fix arrives, you can play it and it will save. Just don’t start playing multiplayer! For people having problems with the save file disappearing (like myself), it disappears as soon as you start playing online.

    Just spend one or two days without multiplaying, and it will be fine. I read that somewhere, and it seemed to have been true as I had to play single player while my wifi didnt work, and my savegame was always there.

  • Dave the Movie Guy

    Doesn’t matter how the grass looks if you can’t play the friggin’ game …. !!!

  • Him

    Ugh great…except they forgot the biggest issues: Campaign not saving, lost progression on all kits, and, what ive noticed recently and a reason I hate cod, dying around corners or dying after I duck behind cover. C’mon

  • Matt1979

    For people experiencing problems with lag. Here is what I do when in multiplayer go to options/game/and lower your network smoothing factor to 30. For me the game runs smooth as silk now. I play on PS 4 and it also works on PS 3.

  • Matt1979

    For the people crying about lag. Do this in multiplayer lower your network smoothing factor to 30 its under options. The game runs smooth as silk now. Sometimes I have to bump it up to 40 if the textures are not rendering correctly. I play on PS 4 and have 10 MB DSL and I play on wired internet. I tried on wireless but its really laggy.

  • Matt1979

    When I start a new game all my wepaons/items are not showing as available but I have a lot of stuff unlocked…WTF!?! c’mon Dice you need to fix that ASAP!

  • BF4Scam

    WHAT ABOUT FIXING THE GODDAM GAME, SHIT CRASHES EVERY MAP

  • dingoed.

    WOW…I play every day for an hour or three with maybe a little lag or drop from game, but usually WORKING GREAT “)

  • amirpro

    After Feb 21 update I get “Cannot start the Application” message on PS4.

    Tried to delete the game and reinstall from disc with v1.0, it worked, but after applying the patch it’s broken again with the “Cannot start the Application” message.
    Tried activate PS4 as primary, restore licenses, nothing helps.

    • Lauro Teixeira

      Same here.. If i delete the data the game start to play Campaign, but back to freeze after PS4 finish installing yesterday patch,,,

  • Dylon Sweeney

    I bought this game to ditch COD. I put it down after I felt like it was “unplayable” I read patch note after patch note and I am simply astounded by DICE’s inability to address the more important issues. This game in my opinion was real eased incomplete. Albeit the fans were not helping with the development process screaming for their game and whatnot. It has come to my mind that they DO NOT know how to fix them. There’s also a piece of me that thinks their inability to fix these problems is some sort of cash grab. Imagine how many people paid for premium. How many will renew if the game is fixed just in time for their subscriptions to run dry? I know I certainly would. Even as I write this. I guess what I’m saying is all these minor fixes, things that DONT ACTUALLY affect gameplay (i.e. Grass, textures, a crash issue that’s only affecting a handful of people because their trying to cheat) feel like a big slap in the face when you compare these issues to no sound during crucial starting moments and taking damage in cover. I was dealing with it, the straw that broke the camels back for me was a day I used a token. I used an experience token, 1 hour of 100% XP gain. I played the whole token away and didn’t gain a single point of XP. Imagine that! Every time I got disconnected from the host or the game crashed I would lose all the progression for that match, and to my astonishment the tokens timer had not been refreshed. 23 minutes of double xp wasted. This continued until the token was gone and I havnt played battlefield 4 since. But I’ve watched the patch notes. I’m pretty sure that’s not an issue anymore but I could be wrong. I’ve finished whining now. DICE….. Stop slapping us in the face. Fix a major issue before you release another patch. LET US TAKE COVER FOR FUCK SAKE

    • Niall Butler

      are you fucking serious, the game crashes for loads of people not the people that’ are trying to cheat’ you pathetic baby, your issue with the game is that your shit and you cant handle being killed

  • Lauro Teixeira

    Are u guys having problems to load battlefield 4 on ps4? Mine isnt loading, i am getting black screen after click options button to begin.

    I keep getting this error code ce-34878-0

    • Richard Marshall

      yes me too. Reinstalled it on the PS4 but no luck.

  • Lauro Teixeira

    Is anyong having error code ps4 ce-34878-0 after yesterday patch?

  • Pissedoffgirlgamer

    Uhhhh it now freezes since this patch everytime i load into a game and im meaning HARD FREEZE like reset my PS3 and send reports off to sony and all that shit. How is it possible that you can even sell this game for its hideous price yet noone can play it properly? How about fixing that instead of grass!

  • N-Shifter

    Am I the only one NOT having all these problems? In fact, don’t answer that since I know I’m not.

    The forums I am part of are made up of PC, PS4 and X1 gamers. I play this game every day with various people, 28 of my PSN friends play this game. None of us have the issues that are being screamed about here (having tantrums like children, maybe you are children, I don’t know) never solves anything. Screaming “FIX THE GAME, FIX THIS, FIX THAT!” will NOT help.

    A LOT of these issues are lag, a LOT of these issues are peoples inability to admit that they screwed up and someone bettered them, it simply must be the games fault right? RIGHT? You couldn’t possibly have been outplayed, you couldn’t possibly have missed what you were shooting at, so it MUST be the games fault.

  • Tml LoveLife

    I cant join no multiplayer game on my ps4! Kill zone multiplayer right away no problem but BF4 i get “ERROR YOU HAVE LOST THE CONNECTION TO THE SESSION” only works after 20mins of trying and only for team deathmatch. Plz help someone or ill just go buy COD.

  • Richard Marshall

    Haven’t been able to play for the last four days. Can’t get past the loading screen

  • gsk

    ea put Europe advantage over usa why I don’t know maybe cause their internet is shitty

  • Magik Mann

    Has anyone else noticed that they removed vehicles from the default bf4 maps when naval strike was released yesterday? Im playing on ps3 zavod 311 obliteration..which usually has a heli tank atv and a mwrap, now its atv ONLY…WTF cmon dice some of us cannot afford premium so we are playing the reg mas but when you kee downgrading the game for the rest of us what do we do?

  • James Pica

    This game is the worst. I recently updated the game and can no longer play the game because it freezes on a battleship on fire. What a complete waste of money on the game and then the bonus content I bought as well.

  • sgtdunn

    they better fix the save lost in campaign

  • NLK3

    We need to fix the black screen issue after dying during the China VIP rescue checkpoint on the second level. Doing an entire level where it glitches from dying a majority of the level in is criminal. Just lucky it’s from Gamefly.
