What's weird is I've heard two Youtubers claim they can't get 40fps on their 3090 card on low settings. One guy is mostly a COD streamer so isn't even a big BF guy. However on XSX the game runs fine for me? Obviously you're going to get occasional frame drops, but nothing out of the ordinary. I'm pretty picky when it comes to FPS and the game runs well on my XSX.

Something doesn't add up. A 3090 blows any next gen console out of the water. Unless maybe some sort of weird driver issue or something? I don't want to accuse people of just mindlessly hating EA, but something doesn't add up.

I played the game all weekend. Had a few times when you join a server and can't spawn. You back out and go back in and it is fine. Funny, the internet is screaming "broken game" yet I'm like level 20 and everyone else is like level 50+. Most people seem to have all the weapons unlocked now.

A game that doesn't have lots issues does't have 2 big patches in the works. Just saying.

I'm glad you are enjoying it but you only have to look at the games official forum to see this game has a lot bugs. Couple that with terrible bloom on weapons. Terrible balance. Lack of content. BF's most BF mode is, according to you and others, the worst mode,etc.

It is pretty easy to see why the hate is so abundant.

Something is wrong within their setup, I get 70-90 fps at 1440p/low settings with a 1080ti.

This is why PC gamers especially need to stop with the review bombs on steam. Nobody cares. 2042 was also one of the most played games as well, so it wasn't like people bought it and then quit.

What you want is constructive criticism and not just being constantly salty.

but they will if they don't address things quickly.

On the Xbox it is the 15th most played game. Vanguard is like 10th. Horizon 5 is first. Even something like the terrible GTA remaster is played more.

Meh, BF gamers will say 2042 is the gold standard once the next BF arrives. I loved BFV at launch, I love this game at launch.

Satisfying gunplay is at the core of Battlefield, and there are a few aspects of this we want to help address upfront.


Shortly after launch, many of you who play on PC helped to highlight an odd inconsistency with the behaviour of aiming, relative to your mouse sensitivity settings. We have done a great deal of investigation around this and have been able to validate that some settings are not properly applying. We have developed a fix for this and we’re targeting the third upcoming Update for this.


On console, we’ve been performing similar investigations around the consistency of Aim Assist. We’re aware of the issues that you’ve helped to raise on this front, and wanted to volunteer that it’s not consistently behaving in line with our designs. We’re on it, and will keep you updated.


More generally, we also wanted to provide you with an update, and response around the various gunplay conversations that we’ve seen take place since the game went live.


Spread (or as some may call it, ‘bloom’ or ‘deviation’) is a term you may have come across if you’ve engaged with this conversation. It refers to the angle by which your bullet may deviate from where you are currently aiming at. We have observed that on many weapons, predominantly on Assault Rifles like the AK-24, the spread tends to be too high, especially when moving while zoomed which causes problematic engagements in the average combat distances of our maps. Weapons miss more often than they really should which makes for an unsatisfying experience and can feel unfair when you have done all you could to nicely align your shots. We have made a series of adjustments to many of the weapons that aim to greatly reduce the impact of spread on the shooting experience.

That's a start.

We also want to give you the assurance that we’re carefully evaluating your desire to see legacy features return. End-of-match Scoreboard, Server Browser, and features like Voice Chat are big topics for us to cover all at once, and we have plenty we want to say around them. We’ll come back to you when we have things that we can show to you, including details about our long-term vision for certain features and functions.

Then fix crossplay so consoles can only play against each other and we'll be well on the way

Or just play on console.... it's packed on PS5.

Problem is I seem to play at different times and I guess Oceania players on Xbox haven't figured out how to turn off crossplay, they just need to make it easy to turn off like on PS5.

Yeah no issue for me.
What gun?

The first LMG
The AN94 assault rifle

You'll lose a battle to a PP19 SMG with just about any other gun because it has no recoil and no bloom.

It is also super noticeable as a turret gunner on a vehicle. Just shoot straight at a wall and watch the bullet spread. On console, it was always hard to aim those things, but the bloom makes it so that you can barely hit anything. You can put the crosshairs right on a guy at point blank and the bullets sail all around him.

Just go prone and shoot a clean wall. Your bullets will go nowhere near their target.

reduced spread! hopefully means i can use something other than PP-29

also they mentioned a bug with aim assist... hope fix to that helps make the gun play more satisfying

Not thrilled with the PP29 nert, was hoping they'd make more of the guns feel more like it rather than make it less enjoyable to use.

I had a solo match crash last night, which was odd.

Nice that you can get XP and unlocks in those solo matches again, good way to try out different weapons, specialists, and vehicles without being a detriment to your teammates. I need to practice flying, it's been since BF3 or 4 since I've even tried. :laugh:

One thing I wish they'd look at is armor. Armor can really add to the time to kill, and it kind of discourages people from taking a team friendly gadget. Anytime I see that blue "cracked armor" icon I know I just lost a gunfight because someone is about to kill me.

We'll have to see how the guns are after the fix. I think the bloom hurt them a lot. I worry the new meta will be the 2nd marksman rifle which is a 2 tap kill in many situations. It is kind of nuts and probably will replace the pp29.

I use that lmg,use the hybrid scope,lay down and shoot often.
Don't have those issues 🤔

I love the revisionist history on BF V. Never mind that the TTK was broken for like 6 months and the entire community abandoned the game. You couldn't even find games on Xbox months after release. The game was great when Pacific dropped for like 2 weeks, then they made the guns into nerf guns and killed the game. Literally.

Specialists are fine. This idea that people always played the objective until specialists is hilarious. I've been an engineer and a medic hybrid and been more useful to my team than any past game. People have been playing selfish since BF1942.

Before specialists, you had tons of people picking their class for the gun only. In BF V you would be right next to 3 medics bleeding out and they'd never even look.
