EA DICE Releases a List of Acknowledged Battlefield V’s Issues Before Release and Their Fix Status

launch trailer

This year, both franchises, Battlefield and Call of Duty, benefited greatly from their beta periods. It helped the development team know what is wrong, take recommendations and feedback from their respective communities, and tweak the game accordingly, whether it is weapon balancing or glitches and bugs discovered randomly while playing.

Battlefield V is around a week away for those who ordered the game’s special edition. DICE released a long list of acknowledged issues and bugs to avoid any backlash or reports flooding in from the community. The studio provided a detailed list of problems, even platform specific issues, as well as a brief description of when and how the respective problem occurs and its fix status. Considering Battlefield V’s 139-pages long day one patch notes, some of these might get ironed out early on.

All Platforms

  • Amazon

    • Amazon offers in various regions missing / unavailable

      • When viewing the various Amazon stores, certain editions (or the product in general) does not appear to be listed, or shows as unavailable.

      • Status: Fix coming on worldwide launch.

  • Armory

    • Soldier / Clothing bundles / sets are unclear as to what they contain

      • When viewing the contents of the Soldier bundles in the Armory, it is not clear that the bundle contains both the base Torso and Leg items, but also the Rare variants. Instead, the impression is given that the legs and torso are listed twice in error.

      • Status: Current investigating.

    • Blued Set of STEN unlocks grip part instead of hand guard part as stated in its description

      • Blued Set for Sten unlocks Muzzle Barrel Receiver Magazine and GRIP instead of handguard

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Classes

    • Medic Self-Healing Representation

      • When self-healing as a Medic, and recently looting a fallen enemy’s ammo pouch, the self heal animation sometimes uses the incorrect pouch (ammo instead of health). Healing still occurs as it should though.

      • Status: Fix targeted for Chapter 1 update.

    • Issues with Medic Revival

      • Reports of inabilities to revive on server.

      • Status: Currently investigating.

  • Customization

    • Label on some facepaints

      • Well, facepaints do wash off, but we didn’t mean to leave that label on them.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Dog Tags & Emblems

    • Missing Alpha/Beta Dog Tags or Emblems

      • We’re working on making sure all players who should have these get them as soon as possible. We’ll be fixing this automatically as soon as we can, and we’re sorry for the delay.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Modes

    • Frontlines – Bomb(s) (on Devastation only)

      • One of the bombs may be hard/impossible to pick up for one of the teams. Worst outcome is that the match will continue in “HQ Attack” mode until the timer runs out.

      • Status: Fix targeted for Chapter 1 update.

  • Reinforcements

    • Reinforcement menu sticking

      • If you have the Reinforcement menu open when entering a vehicle, it may get stuck on your screen. While we’re working on this one, try to make sure you close the menu before spawning into a vehicle.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Rewards

    • Missing pre-order or edition items

  • Servers

    • Australian players being added to a queue then when they get to the server are immediately kicked

      • Status: Current investigating.

    • “Missing Online Access”

      • Players are prompted with the “Missing Online Access” message at the main menu.

      • If the players don’t have any account infractions, this can often times be resolved by turning off DX12 in the video settings.

      • If that doesn’t work, they can still go ahead and contact support.

      • Status: Currently investigating.

  • Squads

    • Can’t join from the social screen with a full squad

      • We’re sorry, but this bug is proving tough to vanquish. If you have a full squad please join matches through the server selection screen instead.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Unlocks

    • When you reach Max Rank you no longer earn Company Coin.

      • We have identified an issue where players that have reached max rank are no longer awarded Company Coins. Players can still earn them with Special Assignments and Daily Orders.

      • Status: Currently investigating.

  • User Interface

    • Platoon tag is not visible in game chat

      • Platoon tag doesn’t appear in game chat near User’s name.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Vehicles

    • Spawning into Top Turret (Tanks)

      • When squad spawning into a tank, ending up in the top turret position, sometimes you’ll end up with an incorrect representation of your weapon and arms (they don’t follow your aim). Shooting still works fine, but visually it looks off.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • War Stories

    • *SPOILER* Tirailleur – Player can bypass combat

      • Player can bypass most of the combat in the level by keeping left in the start, then right past the guard tower and far right around the crash site and running into the plane wreck.

      • Status: Current investigating.

PlayStation 4

  • Aim Assist

    • Aim assist in vehicles

      • Aim assist isn’t working the way it should on vehicle weapons on PlayStation 4. Our engineers are working on recalibrating them.

      • Status: Current investigating.

  • Crashes

    • Hanging after an update

      • If your PlayStation 4 gets stuck at connecting when you’re applying a manifest update in Battlefield V, you may need to restart your system. We’re currently working on a fix for this.

      • Status: Current investigating.

Battlefield V releases on November 20, 2018, for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms.
