New game and server update on PS3 and PC today
We are also happy to be pushing a new game update and server update live today on PS3 and PC. See below for the full change list and download instructions. Let us know what you think in the comments section below. X360 will get the same game update in conjunction with End Game at a later date (no later than March 12th).

Please note: As usual, the server update takes some time to populate all available PC servers. Servers that are not yet updated with the latest version will not be playable until they have undergone the update. If you are unable to join your favorite PC server presently, please use the server browser to find another server for now. If it has active players, it means it has already been updated with the latest server version.

Game update change list: Tweaks and fixes
TV-missile should no longer be able to blow up the helicopter shooting the missile.

Fixed an issue where the proximity defense ability of the Mobile Artillery in Armored Kill does not kill enemies that are standing at a corner of the vehicle. Blast radius extended to 3 meters.

Scavenger mode ticket count in Aftermath increased from 150 to 300 to create matches that last a bit longer.

Fixed incorrect spelling on Aftermath dog tags.

Enabled player movement in Gun Master mode in pre-round.

Fixed an issue where an AT mine kill could count as a vehicle kill.

Improved the position of the repair icon so that it won’t disappear outside the screen while repairing.

Solved a teleportation glitch where the user could teleport if using a knife and a mortar in combination.

Fixed an issue where the Air Radar would display a minimap when running on a hardcore server with minimap disabled.

Fixed an issue where the player camera would flip 180 degrees if the player was revived in water.

Solved an issue where having spawn immunity while being in a vehicle that gets destroyed would grant the player invulnerability.

Improved the behavior of destroyed Rhib boats so that they have proper interaction with other vehicles.

Fixed an issue where landing a helicopter on a mobile artillery vehicle would make the helicopter invisible.

Solved an issue where a counter on Operation Metro lacked collision so that players were unable to put their bipod on it.

Fixed an issue where the floor collision of a particular building would disappear if destroyed by a vehicle.

Added ticket status in the end of round screen for Scavenger Mode.

Fixed several collision issues where the player was able to get out of the playable area on several maps. Levels affected: Talah Market, Epicenter, Markaz Monolith, Noshahr Canals, Grand Bazaar, Azadi Palace, Operation Metro, and Seine Crossing.

DICE, please DON'T listen to all those haters and complaining babies. Here is the HONEST TRUTH, you and your team of experts have created a brilliant game. Battlefield has been FANTASTIC. Battlefield 3 has been and still is straight up AWESOME. DICE WE LOVE YOU and KEEP UP the MIND- BLOWING WORK.
Nice,no nerfs and actually bug fixes.Best patch since release.
Fix below radar
Where is the Stinger nerf, haha.
TV missile fix! Lets hope they get it right...
and this update requires 6.1 gb? wow... what takes so much space?
Would enjoy a fix on the scoped in movement lag some guns have, also no mention of ziba tower roof people fix.
Alsoo what about the grenades that fall through the floors on CQ. The wall that you can jump through on Scrapmetal. the Fact you can change perks and attachments on guns get revived and they are all in effect. the Helicopters speed on some maps is faster then others. The f-35 get rid of it. Also if the MBT's cant fire contiuos canister shell and main, why can the LAV's shoot explosive HEAT rounds then immediatly continue shooting the T-Shell rounds. why your controls suddenly stop working in-game. The palm tree and multiple glitches all over epicenter, Talah Market, Azadi Palace and Markaz Monolith. The veiwing height on players, sometimes enemies shoot at you and the only thing showing is the top of the helmets. Dolphin diving and hip firing, how can you hip-fire jumping down stairs but not when dolphin diving. Put Tehran Highway's TDM back the way it was. Move Damavand Peaks TDM somewhere in the tunnel. COME ON DICE THERE ARE MANY MORE THINGS TO FIX ROLL OUT MORE PATCHES
I'm sure it's already been said - but why the hell is this a 6.1gb patch? There's nothing there that justifies that big of a download. DICE can go suck an egg.
useless patch waste of bandwidth ,waste of space and waste of time !
But Dice, why u no fix stinger?
thankyou for not listening to the whiners and leaving the AEK/AN 94 Alone
This is the patch !!!! Shame on you DIce!!! Fix your game DICE !!!!!
Fixed incorrect spelling on Aftermath dog tags. <=== That made me laugh.
20 pages of ppl crying.. LMAO At least the humor of reading ppl's comments gave me something to do..lol
Where's the M16A3 buff? :D
FIX THE STINGERS PLEASE!!!!!!!
oh wow, they finally got that desk on metro to work?!?!?!??!
Guys... DICE =/= EA. Two different things.
^- Super! Where u can get that Eathquake-map?;)
I love the people that leave comments saying this is like the best patch ever and enlisted on the game like 2 months ago i think the game was 80 times better when it was in beta stage and when it came out on day 1
DICE FIX SU-35BM FLANKER-E. THIS LEAKY TUB ABSOLUTELY CAN'T FLY IN BATTLEFIELD.
In my mind, the worth thing about BF3 is the bad bugfixing. There are many bugs and some ar in BF3 since relase. This Patch does much bugfixing *i like* but over all plz fixe more!
Nice patch DICE i really like this one
Wow not a single gun fix? This is...sad
thanks dice $30 for the net to download this GG, and i see youve helped make trapping guys outside of metro with bipods easier thankyou
Not too shabby, but could always be better DICE... Hope End Game is a huge success! :D
OMFG why i must download 6 gb when i dont have premium, and never will play this new maps?
so no below radar or what?
Thanks for nothing, DICE.
