We are now rolling out the new PS4 game update. You might be booted from ongoing games before you can reconnect to the new server versions that are rolling out at the same time. Change notes below.

NOTE: This small patch was pushed live as quickly as possible to deal primarily with the "one-hit kill" bug. We are already working on the next PS4 update that will contain more fixes and have a bigger focus on game stability. Stay tuned.

Dec 5 PS4 Game Update Notes
-Fixed the "one-hit kill" bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed.
-Fixed a crash that could occur when having a very large amounts of Friends
-Enabled audio in PS4 video captures

One-hit Kill Bug Explained
We are seeing reports from people that this is still present, with descriptions such as "I came around the edge of a building and died instantly". It is important to understand that this is not the One-hit Kill Bug, that is another issue that we are working on addressing. For this, it is important to understand how some of the interpretations made by the game happen so that you can understand the difference.

We saw an issue where a bullet travelling towards an opponent would cause damage in one frame, and then again in the next frame. Therefore bullets would cause 2x damage if they hit the target between these two frames. This issue has been addressed.

The issue of dying before you saw who shot you is a different beast. We use a term called Interpolation in reference to where you are in the game world. There are instances where the death camera is initiated before the correct internet packets have arrived to be interpolated by your camera. This gives the impression that you were killed by "one shot" as someone came around the corner of a building. We have identified this issue and will address it in upcoming updates.

Ooooh, maybe I won't die as much now, but it was a good excuse to use to detract away from my crapness lol.

I wonder if my BF4 keeps crashing because I have over 100 friends.

Ace, I believe a PS3 patch went live yesterday? It seemed to fix quite a few issues.

I can say after playing the BF4 PS3 and PS4 versions, only get BF4 on PS3 if you're not intending to get a PS4 in the next few months. It's quite shocking how much better it looks and plays on PS4 - 60 fps, 1080p and 64 players make a MASSIVE difference.

I've decided to get a PS4 at the end of March, I've ordered BF 4 as a christmas present from shopto today for £25,85 as I had £2 credit off their reduced price. This makes it pretty much half price on the PS3 and as I'll probably not be able to play much online as its a game that dosen't work with my shitty internet connection, I reckon half price is a better option for me.
