Official 'Battlefield 4 Top Issues Tracker' keeps tabs on updates

Dice shares it progress on fixing BF4's most critical errors

Dice has launched a 'Battlefield 4 Top Issues Tracker' where players can find out what issues there are with the game and the status of their repair.

The Battlefield 4 Top Issues Tracker is a page on the Battlefield Battlelog forum, and aims to relay to players "the latest updates in regards to some of the top issues we are going to fix and fan feedback we're implementing in the game," according to the developer.

It features a list of issues, such as the one-hit-kill bug, matchmaking glitch or frame rate drops, each accompanied by a status; 'Investigating', 'fixing' or 'fix live'.

'Investigating' means the developer is trying to reproduce the glitch. 'Fixing' means reproduction was achieved and a fix in the making. 'Fix live' means the update has been released.

Dice says this was previously an internal-only process that has been shared with the public. "We always work with trackers for our games internally which enables us to track and fix bugs as quickly as possible. We've never made it external before, but this seems like a great way to keep you constantly updated on how we're progressing," it said.

The developer also says it's "not a comprehensive list" and that it is "working on some smaller fixes as well".

This comes after Dice said it has put all "future projects" on hold - including expansion pack development - until it fixes the multitude of errors that plague Battlefield 4.

The troubled shooter has suffered with various critical issues since launch, including server instability and lag during gameplay, corrupt save data, XP loss and complete system crashes on an alarmingly regular basis.

A PC patch fixing several multiplayer issues was released Monday.
