    "Upcoming Battlefield 3 patch: what we know

    There have been many bits of information surrounding the upcoming Battlefield 3 patch, and we’ve taken to task to compile all the expected fixes and tweaks that DICE has confirmed will make their way into the new patch, which should be released in early February. The list of confirmed additions:

    Commo Rose 2.0: a complete overhaul of the “Q”-button communications interface, with new commands, voice overs, and more.
    Weapon specific accessory tweaks: accessories such as silencers, foregrips etc. will now be tweaked on a per weapon basis and not globally. All accessories are expected to be tweaked in this patch. For more, see a full list of accessory tweaks.
    A fix for MAV riding will be applied
    Random “Bad Luck” deaths will be fixed across all platforms.
    PlayStation 3 users will see a VOIP fix
    Drivers will now get 50 points for “vehicle assist kills”. Pilot assist points will be increased as well.
    Sniper rifles will get increased accuracy after aiming-down with Red Dot or Holo sights.

    And a few unconfirmed patch notes, but issues/features that DICE are looking into:

    The USAS-12 with Frag rounds will be balanced (unconfirmed: DICE has said they are looking into it).
    The resupply speed on the M320 grenade launcher might get increased, according to DICE.
    Horn sounds will be added to Humvees and other transport vehicles.
    Fall damage is being looked into as well.

    red-dwarf, I've definitely had my share of unexplainable "Bad Luck" deaths.

    Falling to my death after exiting a helo and hitting the space bar several times is my major irritant! Or hitting the "~" key instead of the "1" key and wondering why your soldier can not move but only turn around to look! Or getting your shoelaces hung up on something on the ground and you can not move to save yourself unless you do some kind of back flip to get away from it!

          Is it sad that was my favorite feature of the patch?

            Not at all. It's totally my biggest hope out of that entire list.

                I'm sorry, Horns are cool and all but I'll take my "Enemy Boat Spotted!" over them any day. ;)

                        I hate jumping from objects less than 10 feet high and dying or being critically damaged.

                          It's only cool if it properly identifies tanks as boats under certain circumstances.

                              Unless I get the Russians shouting "Shashka!!" on the Comma rose I am not excited.
