  • Upcoming Patch Changes Via Symthic

    Found this on reddit ,Symthic claims this comes from the (smegheads) at DICE

    "It's not 100% sure yet that the patch will go live with following numbers as Demize99 told me:"
    Quote:
    This is preliminary data, that is to say that it may or may not change, and specifically if there is good community feedback we may either change it immediately or change it in a later update.


    The files I received are more specific than the ones we had access to before.

    This is not a full list, I haven't analyzed all the data yet.
    All the changes and rest of the info that I can get out of these files will be here soon.

    Assault Rifles:
    545x45mm bullet minimum damage (All assault rifles except G3A1)
    17 -> 18.4

    G3A1
    Min Damage 20 -> 22

    Carbines
    SCAR-H
    Min Damage 17 -> 20


    LMGs
    M60 & M240B
    Max damage 30 -> 34
    Min damage 20 -> 22

    PKP
    Min damage 20 -> 22

    M249, M27IAR, RPK-74M
    Min damage 17 -> 18.4


    Sniper rifles
    M98B
    Max damage 95 -> 80
    Dropoff start dist. 20 -> 15
    Dropoff end dist. 75 -> 120

    All other bolt-action sniper rifles
    Max damage 75 -> 80
    Min damage 55 -> 59
    Dropoff start dist. 20 -> 15
    Dropoff end dist. 75 -> 100

    All semiautomatic sniper rifles except SKS:
    Min damage: 34 -> 37.5
    Dropoff start distance 12 -> 15

    SKS
    Dropoff end distance 50 -> 60


    Attachments
    Fore grip
    Basically before it reduced the horizontal recoil by 50%, in these files it reduces h-recoil only ~20-33% depending on weapon.
    It also increases the minimum spread 20% ~ 50% depending on stance and weapon.

    I'll make complete list of these soon.

    Suppressor
    Suppressors will not reduce the damage anymore.
    Now it will reduce the distance where damage starts/stops to drop off instead.
    ...more info soon...

    I do not really understand those changes.

      Re: Upcoming Patch Changes Via Symthic

      Very broad summary, they are upping the minimum damage on most weapons, they are doing some tweaks to the foregrip, dropoff distances of the snipers are being tweaked, most weapons are having their recoil tweaked, spread and recoil of most PDWs is being increased.

      I believe recoil decrease is how quickly the weapon recovers from recoil, with lower values meaning faster recovery time.
      FirstSRecoilMul means first shot recoil multiplier. Higher value means higher recoil on the first shot.

      Overall I like what I see. Please keep in mind that these aren't a final set of patch notes.

        These are some interesting changes if they are true.

        Looks like the M98B will take a hit:

        M98B
        Max damage 95 -> 80
        Dropoff start dist. 20 -> 15
        Dropoff end dist. 75 -> 120
        I am happy to see that the AN94 did not get tweaked that much: :)

        AN94
        Recoil up 0.45 -> 0.3
        FirstSRecoilMul 1.5 -> 2
        Well, it depends on how much the foregrip is tweaked of course.

            Here's the latest patch news:

            No Battlefield 3 patch in February

            On February 17th, 2012 in News

            BF3 patch We’ve been expecting a big Battlefield 3 patch in February, but according to DICE’s community manager Daniel Matros, the patch was never intended for release in February. When asked on Twitter where patch was, Matros responded by revealing that the date was apparently wrongly announced. Matros said:

            “It was announced by someone who got the dates wrong”

            A few more Twitter users inquired about the date, to which Matros responded “The date was never really correct anyway”.

            There you have it guys, no patch this month. Hopefully we’ll see it sometime in early March, and hopefully with a bunch of changes.

            Who announced the February date ?

              Recoil decrease on the g3? Might have look into that again. Love me some battle rifles.

                M16 get buff. AK get buff. G3 gets small buff. SCAR gets buff and everything else gets Nerf. LMG all need bipod now. No more run and gun. M240B and M60 get buff. M98 Nerf all other bolt action get buff. RPG get radius Nerf but Damg buff. My AEK got a Nerf but my. 44 and G18 get buffs. So far its not too bad. I'll adapt.

                  Re: Upcoming Patch Changes Via Symthic

                  I'm not a big fan of the M416 change to first shot recoil. The reason I use it so much now is because its first shot multiplier is much lower than other ARs: now there's not much reason to use it over the M16.
                  He was told that he should not kill, and he did not kill, until he got into the Army. Then he was told to kill, and he killed.

                    The M16's lower reload time was well worth it's lesser values in other categories. The M16 will most likely continue to be the most effective AR unless they decide to nerf it in any sort of way.

                      This is the worse patch I have seen yet. Not all ARs are built alike. AKs are generally 7.62 rounds and should have a higher damage value, but less accuracy due to the poorer build of the AKs. The M16 family should be more accurate, but have less damage. The rest of the 5.56 ARs should have similar, but not exact damage as the M16/4 family, but different accuracy and recoil values. This makes it seem that all ARs will have the exact same damage values. Might as well have just a few ARs and get rid of the rest.

                        Sounds like someone misses the awesomeness of 2142, 4 ARs that were all different with their ups and downs (except the scar).

                          Indeed, the SCAR-11 was the red-headed stepchild of the other assault rifles.
