DICE has released a new Battlefield 4 title update for the Xbox 360 version of the game.

Among other features, the studio says the latest patch includes various fixes for improving general stability. DICE also warns that there may be some Battlefield 4 downtime while the update is being deployed.


DICE released the latest Battlefield 4 PC patch on Monday, PlayStation updates on Tuesday, and an Xbox One patch on Wednesday.

Jan 16 Xbox 360 update notes

  • Various fixes for improving general stability
  • Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
  • Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
  • Fixed a bug where players' rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated
  • Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
  • Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though he was just hurt)
  • Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver's camera
  • Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
  • Stealth Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other. F35 & J-20 are slightly more agile, Su-50 is less agile
  • Attack Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other, and all 3 are now slightly less agile than earlier
  • Fixed camera glitch when switching weapons while moving in crouch
  • Fixed an occasional bug where players could experience intermittent engine sound dropouts when driving wheeled IFVs
  • China Rising: Fixed animation glitch for motorbike passengers ocuring when aiming
  • Fix for first and third person soldier animations being out of sync while doing transition changes. This could potentially make the player get hit while in cover behind a wall or other obstacle
  • Fix for map and minimap flickering on Rogue Transmission and Operation Locker

In December, DICE announced that it was halting work on Battlefield 4 DLC development until it fixed a number of the game's major issues.

"We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game - it is absolutely our #1 priority," a spokesperson for publisher EA said at the time. "The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game."
