    Battlefield 1 Nivelle Nights Update Notes

    Hello everyone,

    Welcome to the Update Notes for the Nivelle Nights Update. We're excited to bring you the first night map in Battlefield™ 1. The map features the French army facing off against the Germans in mud-filled trenches. The atmosphere is soothingly eerie, and the layout promotes both close quarter and long distance combat. The map will be available to Premium Pass players and They Shall Not Pass owners from today. If you do not have either, there is a chance to play the map through Premium Friends.
    New Feature: Best Squad

    We have added a new screen at the end of the match, highlighting the best squad in the game. Our data has shown that players playing as part of a platoon are generally playing better than others, so if you haven't already done so, it is time to find a platoon. Earn your place in the spotlight with your platoon.

    We have also made some other changes and fixes. Here is the list of this month's items:
    WEAPONS & GADGETS

    Fixed an issue where the player's weapon got filtered audio when late-joining a game in multiplayer.

    Increased NO Killtrade distance from 10m to 20m based on community feedback.

    Corrected aiming controller settings for the Benet Mercie Optical when using 1.5x zoom. It was using iron sights settings, it will now use optical settings like the other zoom levels.

    Added blur around the Selbstlader 1906 Sniper's scope when aiming.

    Added single fire mode to the Ribeyrolles to match the description which says it's select fire.

    Ammo pouch speeds up grenade resupply if player stands close to it.

    Grenade (resupply) icon:

    - Now greyed out (lowered alpha) when out of ammo.

    - Doesn't blink anymore when out of ammo.

    - Resupply progress now shown when close to ammo crate/pouch even when player already has 1 grenade and is resupplying a second grenade (smoke).

    Fixed an exploit which allowed AT Mines to be placed on vehicles.

    Fixed issue where flamethrower audio could get stuck if killed while firing. Get it? Firing. FIRE-ing.

    Fixed issue where player was able to fire weapon while being melee-killed.
    VEHICLES

    Fixed vehicle skin descriptions not showing up in the vehicle customization screen.

    Fixed low resolution texture on Chauchat rear iron sight.

    Fixed issue where wrong players would hear vehicle Bailout voice over.
    MAPS & MODES

    Fort de Vaux: Players should no longer be able to get on top of the fort around the courtyard area.

    Fixed issue where Conquest Control scoring event was being awarded in other game modes (Operations, Domination).

    Fixed an issue where outdoor reverbs were not fully faded in when transitioning from indoor to outdoor.

    Verdun Heights: Fixed a few out-of-bounds spawns in Operations.

    Verdun Heights: Adjusted the combat area and capture area for the flag in the last Operations sector to improve the balance.

    Verdun Heights: Higher likelihood for more weather variation.

    Verdun Heights: Adjusted HQ spawns for both teams for Conquest.

    Fixed an issue where shells of the BL9 artillery on Rupture in the Rush game mode would be blocked if fired after the attackers had advanced past the second sector.

    Fixed an issue where self repair would activate without input upon entering a driver seat after leaving that seat mid repair cycle. All tank and plane parts are now fixed automatically upon the vehicle reaching full health. This prevents the confusing situation of having a healthy vehicle with broken parts.

    Implemented Frontlines on Amiens and Argonne Forest.

    Player HUD is now active during Pre-round.

    Added original lighting for Soissons to make the level brighter.
    SPECTATOR

    Camera Filters and Depth of Field settings can now be used while in Player View mode. (1st person, 3rd person, and director cameras)

    Fixed issue where all squad information was not always sent to spectator.
    RSP

    We know that the community are requesting many more features to improve the RSP program, and we continue to improve it, based on the feedback we’ve been receiving from the Battlefield community.

    - Added setting for Unlimited Magazines.
    NETCODE

    Added a tooltip on the death screen for when the player has a high latency to the server.

    Added a message about leading your shots when playing with a high latency to the server.

    Moved the latency indicator to not overlap with any other UI elements.
    XBOX ONE

    Fixed issue where game crashed after selecting several custom button mappings for the vehicle controller buttons.

    Fixed issue where game would stop at black loading screen when loading maps.
    PLAYSTATION 4

    Fixed issue where game crashed after selecting several custom button mappings for the vehicle controller buttons.



    OLD Patch Notes


    November 15th 2016

    General:

    OPERATIONS CHANGES:[/I]
    Spoiler:
    Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. It’s clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. We’ve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left.

    64 player

    • Increase attacker maximum tickets from 150 to 250
    • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
    • Increased the amount of minimum ticket regained when capturing a sector in 64p Operations from 30 to 50.
    • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.


    40 player

    • Increase attacker maximum tickets to 200 from 150
    • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
    • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.


    CONQUEST CHANGES: We’ve listened to your feedback in regards to the Suez Conquest layout in regards to balance. We will be adding two more flags to the layout, this should result in one team not being able to capture and lock down all flags as easy as before. In addition, we also noticed that it was very difficult to re-capture flags within the capture areas located in the village areas. To solve this we’ve reduced the capture size of these areas to include less buildings. The result of this should make the flags somewhat easier to capture and make sure that a team that has lost and been pushed out of the villages can easier re-capture them and get back into the fight. In addition, to help a team that has been pushed back all the way to their HQ, we’ve added an armored car that players can use to break out of the HQ and flank the opposing team.


    • Added two additional flags on the Suez map, giving it a total of 5 flags.
    • Added 1 armored car for either team to spawn in their HQ.
    • Reduced the size of the capture volumes on the flags located in the villages, old A & B flag. This is to reduce the amount of building interiors located within the capture area. The change should result in the flags being easier to capture.

    • You can customize your soldier from within the UI by selecting either the icon on Home or on Soldier
    • If the squad leader ignores requests for orders the leadership is transferred to another member of the squad.
    • When a squad member requests an order (and there is no active squad order), the requesting player is added to the want-to-be-leader queue for that squad and a 60 seconds timer starts (the timer is not reset if there are other squad members waiting in the queue already).
    • When the 60 seconds pass, the first member in the squad queue (the one who requested order earliest) is promoted as a squad leader. If there are other members in the queue after him, the timer is automatically reset to 60 seconds and if the new leader doesn't give orders over that period either, then the next waiting in line is promoted and so on.
    • If the current squad leader issues an order, then the queue for the squad is cleared.
    • Equal weather in Rush. Now uses same weather sequence and trigger conditions for both rounds in a match

    December 13 2016 Giant’s Shadow

    Spoiler:
    Welcome to the Battlefield 1 December Update. We’re excited to share with you all the changes that we are bringing to the table, headlined by the new map Giant’s Shadow. We’re also bringing a ton of important balance changes and fixes, as well as an exciting new Custom Game setting with Standard Issue Rifles that we can’t wait to try out together with the community. Finally, we’re happy to announce that our new Spectator Mode is available in this update, and we are all really excited to see what the community will do with it.
    So sit back, grab a hot beverage, and enjoy reading about all the changes in detail below or here. Changes include all platforms unless specifically noted. See you on the Battlefield!


    • Alexander “Striterax” Hassoon
    • Erik “TheHelgon” Ortman
    • Alan ”Demize99” Kertz
    • Steve “whitewalrus” Lin
    • Randy “SonicFrequency” Stanton
    • Introducing Giant’s Shadow

    With a massive crashed airship casting its shadow onto the battlefield, Giant’s Shadow brings fierce combat on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateau-Wassigny railway. Fight in the shadow of a crashed giant The Battle of the Selle, 1918. Cold autumn. British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are heading towards a strategic railway center. The outcome is uncertain. An armored train can still turn the tide.
    Available December 13, 2016 for pre-order and Premium Pass customers. Giant’s Shadow will drop for all Battlefield 1 players on December 20, 2016 as a free map pack. BATTLEFIELD 1 ON APPLICABLE PLATFORM (SOLD SEPARATELY) AND ALL GAME UPDATES, INTERNET CONNECTION, EA ACCOUNT, AND (FOR CONSOLE PLAYERS) AN XBOX LIVE GOLD OR PLAYSTATION PLUS ACCOUNT REQUIRED FOR GIANT’S SHADOW. Retail preorder customers will need to enter their code on the PlayStation®Store/Xbox Store/Origin Store to download the Giant’s Map content starting on December 13, 2016. Early access ends December 20, 2016.


    • Spectator Mode
      With great pleasure, we would like to introduce everyone to the new Spectator mode. In Spectator, players will be able to join a live BF1 match as an observer. From there, observers can switch between first-person and third-person camera views of all the players on the battlefield through our Player View mode, get an overhead bird’s eye view of the battlefield in Table Top mode, or fly a camera through the world using Free Cam mode. Our goal was to improve Spectator from previous versions of Battlefield. We gathered feedback from the community and focused much of our efforts on improving the usability and flow moving from player-to-player and switching between the different view modes (Table Top, Player View, and Free Cam). Another key design emphasis for us was to make Spectator a viable tool for the community to create content which includes a moveable third-person camera, depth of field, and camera filters.
    • New Custom Game setting – Standard Issue Rifles

    A new Custom Game option has been added: Standard Issue Rifles. In SIR all kits are granted access to their faction’s standard issue rifle. For example, the British are granted the SMLE MKIII. These rifles are not equipped with optics, and are intended to provide players with gameplay inspired by the WW1 trenches. As a Custom Game option, this can be enabled or disabled with other weapon types to create a variety of experiences. SIR is not available as part of the base game experience. We feel that the ability to equip SIR in vanilla would negatively impact the combat roles of the classes. As a clear WW1 fantasy, we hope that SIR scratches an itch for our broad and diverse player base.


    • Movement

    We’ve made several fixes and tweaks to the controls and input handling for the soldier experience. Most of these are bug fixes that should generally ensure a higher response level for players. This includes fixing the inability to sprint out of crouch and prone in certain situations and fixing issues with toggle zoom. While we are confident we have improved the situation, we are eager to hear the community’s feedback to see if there are any outstanding or new issues that can be discovered.


    • Aim Assist

    An update has also been made to the controller Aim Assist system in BF1. We now require the player to be actively giving aim input in order to get aim assistance. It was possible in some previous cases to get help on a target when simply strafing past them, which was unintentional. We’ve also exposed additional control options on console, including the ability to tweak the central dead zone. Please note that setting the dead zone too small may introduce unintentional aim movement. We have not made any adjustments to the snap-to-target feature of our Aim Assist. While we are aware there are players who are actively petitioning for the reduction or removal of Aim Assist, we feel that this would be to the detriment of the global player community. As this is an area of high passions, we expect additional feedback on our Aim Assist systems to surface, and we are open to that feedback. We are especially interested in appealing to those players who wish to play without assists, and are sensitive to their needs. •


    • Vehicles
    • Vehicle Deployment
      This update includes some new additional logic to address the problem of spawning as a Tanker, Pilot, or Cavalry soldier without your mount. We have also made some fixes that should prevent the player from getting the incorrect kit when spawning into a vehicle, for example spawning as a Cavalry soldier when spawning into a Tank. In some extreme cases, the player may be blocked from spawning if a vehicle cannot be spawned. This can happen due to positioning of other soldiers and vehicles in the world, and should be rare. Previously the player would be spawned without the vehicle; in the new case, the spawn flow will be aborted and the player given a “spawn not available” message.
    • Landship

    Looking at the way the game is played, the Landship is underrepresented in gameplay. We wanted to enhance the role of the tank as a teamplay vehicle, as well as give additional incentives for tank drivers to pick up and play the Landship. The biggest change here is the ability to allow teammates to spawn into the Landship directly, like they do the Heavy Tank today. This will help keep the Landship full of teammates, in a way that makes it a far more effective vehicle. We've also applied buffs to the driver abilities and the armor of the Landship, making it as armored as the Heavy Tank. The shape of the Landship still makes it easier to knock out treads and weapons compared to the Heavy Tank.


    • Air Vehicles
      Several adjustments have been made to the combat experience for Air Vehicles. We’ve removed an exploit that allowed instant killing of airplanes with the Ranken Darts; these are intended as ground attack weapons, not air to air weapons. Fighter airplanes now have slightly higher damage to their MGs overall and Bombers take more damage from MGs specifically. Rockets have also received a velocity boost to make their usage more consistent. Combined with some additional reductions in overheat, this should make Fighters more viable in the air to air role without having to resort to exploits or lucky rocket hits. We’ve also reduced the damage of rear gunners in airplanes, in order to prevent players from easily switching to the rear gun and killing pursuers. This tactic is, of course, still viable, but now is more difficult to perform, making it a skill move. The damage reduction should not be extreme enough to significantly decrease the intended teamplay benefit of having a full airplane.
    • Line of Sight
      We’ve added a “Head Glitching” style fix to vehicles that prevents players from shooting over objects that block the weapon’s line of sight. This is most noticeable in 3P, and is intended to fix players being able to fire their tank at targets while remaining entirely behind cover. It is our intent to provide a balanced 1P and 3P vehicle experience, and this fix goes a long way towards ensuring 3P does not become the dominant play style.
      Detailed Vehicle Changes
    • o TankGewehr now does increased damage, from 120-150 to 160-180. Change is on both the Landship and Tank Hunter. Damage against planes is virtually unchanged
    • o Landship mortars have had their range increased slightly
    • o The Mortar Pattern of the Landship now has 5 seats, adding two additional side LMG seats to the package
    • o The Squad Support Pattern of the Landship now features a front firing 20mm cannon like the Light Tank Flanker Pattern, in stead of an LMG *o The Landship now takes the same damage as the Heavy Tank
    • o Decreased amount of health restored by emergency repairs on the Heavy Tank from 30% to 20%
    • o Increased the amount of health restored by track repairs on the Landship from 15% to 20%
    • o Decreased amount of health restored by emergency repairs on the Landship from 30% to 25%
    • o Decreased damage of Case shells against planes by 50%
    • o Reduced stationary AA range from 400 m to 334 m
    • o Fixed inconsistent damage of plane rockets against other planes
    • o Reduced plane rocket impact damage from 120 to 100
    • o Increased plane rocket initial speed and reduced time to live
    • o Reduced Ranken Dart damage against planes
    • o Made bombers take 20% more damage from bullets
    • o Increased Dogfighter and Trench Fighter MG damage by 4% and slowed down the overheat
    • o Increased Bomber Killer MG damage by 3%
    • o Decreased Airship Killer MG damage by 18%
    • o Decrease plane tail gunner damage by 23% (far) to 42% (close) and sped up damage drop-off slightly
    • o Reduced boat torpedo range to approximately 400 m, matching the behemoth AA range
    • Weapons
    • Shotguns
      Shotgun balance has been addressed in this update, with the primary goal of evening out the advantages and disadvantages of each type of shotgun. We noticed that some shotguns were unintentionally strong at certain distances, most obvious with the Model 10-A Hunter and Factory, which could kill a full health target at long range (for a shotgun). Players were naturally preferring these shotguns over others. To prevent this, we reduced the range for the buckshot variants of the M97 Trench Gun, Model 10-A and Sawed Off Shotgun, reducing the maximum one-hit kill distance. To make the M97 Trench gun more attractive we added an extra pellet to all variants and slightly improved the damage drop-off for the Sweeper variant. The Backbored shotgun variants had their range improved, as previously you took too big of a hit for the improved recoil. We increased the accuracy of the 12g Automatic to allow users to make use of its high rate of fire more effectively. Tweaked crosshairs will make it easier to land your damage consistently for all shotguns.
    • LMGs
      Adjustments were made to have LMG performance much more consistent at close and medium range. We tweaked how much inaccuracy you get when you start firing an LMG while aimed. Previously, Optical configurations had a significant advantage over the rest unless a bipod was used. Now the accuracy of the second shot is the same for all variants of one LMG and just slightly above the level previously held by the Optical setups. Using a bipod will still give you a significant boost to your accuracy while firing. Additionally, we added a small bonus to horizontal recoil while aimed with Optical variants, improved reload timers to better match the animations, and made the Lewis Gun overheat slower.
    • Bayonets

    Players may now bayonet charge while reloading or when out of ammo with their weapon. The reload will be aborted if the player still has rounds in the magazine. If the weapon is empty, the reload will restart automatically at the end of the charge.


    • Detailed Weapon Changes
    • o Reduced reload time for the Lewis MG from 3 to 2.85 s and 4.5 to 4.2 s for fast and slow reload to better match the animations
    • o Slowed down Lewis MG overheat from 35 to 50 bullets
    • o Increased Madsen MG fast reload from 2.45 to 2.65 s to better match the animations
    • o Reduced tactical fast time for the BAR from 2.9 to 2.8 s to better match the animations
    • o Increased MG15 reload time from 4.3 to 4.45 s to better match the animations
    • o Corrected an error where LMGs and rifles zoomed in too fast when used with iron sights and 2.00x magnification
    • o Increased the throwing velocity of the Light AT Grenade to the same value as used by the Frag Grenade
    • o Improved accuracy and recoil of M1903 Experimental
    • o Made revolvers and the Howdah Pistol recover faster from dispersion
    • o Flares no longer set the player on fire immediately after firing them while looking down
    • o Reduced the damage of mortar shells when hitting an object immediately after firing
    • o Fixed Martini-Henry dealing too much damage to most body parts. It is now affected by a 0.9 multiplier to the lower torso and upper arms and a 0.75* multiplier to the legs and forearms, like the other rifles with sweet-spot mechanics
    • o Martini-Henry now resupplies 5 bullets at a time
    • o Reduced No.3 revolver reload time from 2.666 s to 2.3 s
    • o Increased No.3 rate of fire from 150 rpm to 164 rpm
    • o Reduced Repetierpistole M1912 aimed stationary dispersion from 0.4 to 0.3
    • o Reduced Repetierpistole M1912 horizontal recoil from 0.8 to 0.5
    • o Increased Hellriegel first shot recoil multiplier from 1.8 to 2.0
    • o Increased Hellriegel horizontal recoil from 0.76 to 0.8
    • o Reduced MP18 first shot recoil multiplier from 2.1 to 1.8
    • o Improved shotgun crosshair size and scaling
    • o Sawed-Off shotgun now resupplies 4 rounds at a time
    • o Reduced 12g Automatic dispersion increase per shot from 0.3 to 0.15
    • o Fix for dispersion of Model 10-A Hunter decreasing too quickly
    • o Fix for dispersion of Model 10-A Factory decreasing too slowly
    • o Moved up damage drop-off from M97 Trench Gun Hunter, Model 10-A Factory and Hunter by 1
    • o Reduced 12g Automatic post reload delay from 0.5 to 0.3
    • o Improved hip fire of M1903 Experimental
    • o Changed SMGs and LMGs to use damage curves
    • o Huot, Lewis, M1909 and BAR minimum damage increased from 21 to 23
    • o LMG damage drop-off happens at farther distances
    • o Reduced effect of suppression on LMG vertical recoil
    • o Changed LMG base ADS dispersion increase per shot from -0.12 to -0.085 so they are slightly more accurate on the first shots
    • o Reduced Lewis horizontal recoil from 0.36 to 0.34
    • o Reduced Huot horizontal recoil from 0.32 to 0.16
    • o Reduced M1909 horizontal recoil from 0.3 to 0.24
    • o Changed post reload delays on Gewehr 98 from 0.4 to 0.8 to better match animations
    • o Changed post reload delays on SMLE from 0.8 to 0.6333 to better match animations
    • o Changed post reload delays on M1903 from 0.8 to 0.7 to better match animations
    • Mortars
      We’ve reduced some of the inaccuracy added by the last update. Mortars will be more accurate when placed, and slightly more accurate during sustained fire. The damage amounts remain unchanged. We felt that it had become too difficult to hit even large targets like tanks, and the inaccuracy in combination with the damage adjustments to the airburst mortar reduced mortar effectiveness more than intended. In addition, in Hardcore players will now get the Large Map for aiming indirect fire weapons. Spotted players will not show on the map unless Minimap Spotting is enabled in Custom Games.
    • Syringe

    We’ve added a short cool down between syringe uses and added the ability to ignore the cooldown if near an ammo crate. Together a Medic and a Support can team up to quickly revive a large amount of soldiers. The cool down is minor, and is intended to only prevent the near instant revive of several soldiers in a very short time. Reviving a single soldier is unaffected. We feel this is a good balance to prevent “revive trains” from a single Medic, while not reducing the usefulness of revive, with a bonus of additional teamplay.


    • Ammo & Medical Crates
      Medic and Support players should find it much more reliable and useful to deploy their Large Ammo and Medical crates. We’ve added additional healing and resupply power to those crates, so they serve more teammates before being depleted and being destroyed. Additionally, we’ve added a feature that will deploy the crates at the player’s feet if the space immediately in front is blocked by an object or slope. This should drastically reduce, but not entirely eliminate, the situation where a crate fails to deploy. It is still possible for the player to occupy a space where the crate cannot be deployed, for example a very tight corner or a steep slope.
    • Explosive Icons

    We’ve updated the in-world icons for explosives to properly reflect their team, and to fully scale over distance so they don’t unnecessarily dominate the field of view, especially at close range. We’ve also identified an issue whereby it can be difficult to determine if a nearby grenade is in front or behind the player. This update does not include a fix for the issue, but we hope to address it in the future. Finally, we’ve implemented proper scaling on the large crates for both medic and support players, so their icons are not as obstructive at longer ranges.


    • Hardcore
      Thanks to the Community for their feedback on Hardcore mode, we’ve introduced some additional changes in this Custom Game. A large map is now available, as in the base game. In Hardcore the map is will not show the position of objectives, players, etc. We intend for players in Hardcore to only have UI interfaces for things a real soldier could reliably know, for example: how many grenades he has left, but not how many bullets are left in his magazine. For this reason, we have decided to continue down the path without having kill confirmations or a kill log in Hardcore. However, we have added Team Kill confirmations as a nod to the need of accessibility and player learning. In BF1 we changed Hardcore from the reduced health of BF4 to increased bullet damage, in order to retain balanced explosion damage. In this update we’ve adjusted the damage amount in Hardcore from 200% to 125% damage. While on paper this looks like a huge change, 125% damage will still create far more lethal up close damage, for all kits, but will prevent bolt action rifles from being one hit kill at all ranges vs all body types. Other weapons will retain their intended ranges, while still being far more lethal than the base game. These changes help us steer Hardcore down the path of feeling like a faster, meaner, more realistic base game
    • Stability & Performance
      Stability and performance is always critical to us, and in this patch we’ve done a number of improvements to ensure a solid gameplay experience. Below are some of the major changes.
    • o Fixed an issue that caused a hang when pressing J/K/L on console keyboard
    • o Added a new Framerate Limiter option that limits the maximum framerate the game will run at to a specific amount. Limiting your framerate to a lower number can help improve performance if you are experiencing high CPU usage
    • o CPU optimization to improve high framerate operation on high end video cards where there is no VRAM pressure
    • o Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes crash when loading levels
    • o Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes crash when dying in a vehicle
    • o Fixed a server crash related to trip wires

    Official patch 1/30/17 CTE PATCH
    Spoiler:


    Battlefield 1 CTE Patch 1 [3211582]

    Welcome to the first patch notes on the BF1 CTE. This is where we get the chance to experiment with features and content to see how everyone likes it, before exposing it to the whole Battlefield community. You are among the first players to test the contents of this patch, and we hope you will like it. In this patch we’re bringing back the ever popular ribbons from previous Battlefield titles. We are also increasing the max class rank to 50.

    Read below to find out more about the contents of this patch.

    Ribbons

    You will now be able to collect ribbons as you play. There are 20 different ribbons to collect, and each time you get a ribbon you also receive a 500XP. The ribbons are designed to promote good teamplay and playing the objective. If you have suggestions for other ribbons you’d like us to add, we’re always listening!

    Elite Codices

    It is now possible to unlock an Elite Codex for eight of the available primary weapons in the game. All you need to do is get 500 more kills per weapon. Not only will you get a shiny Elite Codex, but you will also be awarded 25000 bonus XP. Not bad when you’re chasing those new max class ranks.

    Increased Max Class Ranks

    The new max class rank will be 50. When you hit 50, you will be granted some extra nice class flair in the kill card to really taunt your fallen foes.

    Servers

    We’ve added the feature to vote for the next map after a match is over. Players on the server will get two options to vote for, and whichever alternative gets the most votes will be the next map. The options will be randomly selected from the server’s map rotation. This is done during the Victory-screen, so no extra time between rounds has been added. This feature may be turned off initially, and some servers will never have it.

    Those are the major features we’re adding, along with a bunch of bug fixes and other tweaks listed below.

    CTE Patch 2 | 2/21/17
    Spoiler:




    RESUPPLY CHANGES
    As part of an ongoing effort to address excessive use of explosive gadgets and grenades, we changed the way grenades resupply for this release. The goal for these changes is to reduce the amount of grenades available while getting constantly resupplied, as it is common in choke points, without making resupplies unnecessarily long in other gameplay.


    • Similar to some gadgets, all grenades slowly resupply when out of ammo. This resupply is greatly sped up when near an ammo crate.

    The resupply timers are as follows:



    • Frag: 36 seconds
    • Light AT: 36 seconds
    • Impact: 36 seconds
    • Incendiary: 36 seconds
    • Gas: 27 seconds
    • Mini: 24 seconds
    • Smoke: 18 seconds
    • Resupplies are 3 times as fast near ammo crates


    Other changes:


    • Reduced Smoke, Gas and Mini Grenade ammo from 2 to 1
    • Ammo pouches currently no longer resupply grenades


    All these changes are subject to tweaking in future releases. We are looking into expanding this system to more gadgets in the future.

    CORE GAMEPLAY CHANGES

    WEAPONS AND GADGETS

    MG 08/15


    • Decreased horizontal recoil from 0.7 to 0.3
    • Full accuracy is reached one shot earlier
    • Fixed an issue where the MG 08/15 would overheat much faster on PS4 and XB1 than on PC and set the new overheat threshold to 67 bullets

    Fixed bad reload timers on M1911 Extended:


    • Tactical reload time increased from 1.4 to 1.6 s
    • Empty reload time increased from 2.3 to 2.6 s
    • Reload threshold reduced from 1.1 to 0.78

    Fixed staged reload timers


    • M1903 Experimental:
    • Reduced rate of fire from 450 to 360

    Increased close range damage, allowing it to kill a healthy soldier with 4 hits within 16 meters

    Self-Loading Rifles and Pieper M1893:


    • Made recoil decrease smoother
    • Most recoil values were tweaked, but are not comparable to previous releases
    • Updated the way the CONTROL value is calculated to better represent the amount of recoil that players have to compensate for


    Self-Loading Rifles


    • Fixed an issue where spread would reset too quickly after firing
    • Reduced base spread increase per shot of self-loading rifles from 0.25 to 0.2
    • Decreased base spread decrease per second from 3.75 to 3
    • Decreased the spread increase per shot bonus in ADS that Marksman, Sniper and Optical versions get to maintain the old effective spread increase per shot values of 0.125
    • Added a small bonus to spread decrease per second for Marksman, Sniper and Optical versions

    Reduced the number of magazines carried by the M97 Trench Gun by 1

    LMGs:


    • Increased moving hipfire dispersion by 0.25 degrees
    • Fixed incorrect CONTROL values for Low Weight LMGs


    Madsen MG:


    • Reduced first shot recoil multiplier from 1.9 to 1.8
    • Reduced horizontal recoil from 0.6 to 0.55


    MP18:


    • Reduced vertical recoil from 0.38 to 0.35
    • Reduced Experimental third shot recoil multiplier from 1.8 to 1.5
    • Doubled Experimental spread decrease per second in ADS


    Automatico M1918:


    • Reduced vertical recoil from 0.44 to 0.40
    • Increased horizontal recoil from 0.8 to 1.2
    • Increased Trench and Storm first shot recoil multiplier from 2.65 to 2.8
    • Decreased Factory first shot recoil recoil multiplier from 2.65 to 2.33
    • Increased Factory recoil decrease from 12 to 16

    Increased Frommer Stop Auto horizontal recoil from 1.0 to 1.2

    Hellriegel 1915:


    • Increased 1915 horizontal recoil from 0.8 to 0.95
    • Overheating now cancels ADS
    • Increased moving hipfire dispersion by 0.25 degrees


    Grenades:


    • Increased Impact grenade minimum time before explosion from 0.7 to 1.0 seconds
    • Increased Incendiary grenade minimum time before explosion from 0.67 to 1.3 seconds
    • Increased Mini Grenade damage from 65 to 72
    • Decreased inner blast radius Light AT Grenades from 2.0 to 1.5

    Decreased inner blast radius Assault AT Grenades to 1.5 from 2.0 Reduced Tripwire INC ammo from 2 to 1 to better account for its high damage and AOE

    Crossbow:


    • The crossbow launcher now regenerates all its ammo even when not reloaded
    • Increased autoreplenish time from 15 to 25 seconds

    K bullets now resupply in 2 s rather than 5
    Reduced suppression by friendly gas and prevented coughing at low levels of gas suppression

    VEHICLES

    AA cannons:

    • Removed blast and impact impulse to prevent them from pushing and rotating planes
    • Reduced impact damage to planes by 50% for fighters and attack planes and by 40% for bombers


    A7V:

    • Reduced A7V flamethrower range from 44 to 24 meters to better match the VFX
    • Reduced A7V flamethrower speed inheritance and velocity and increased time to live for more predictable behavior
