This one ain’t for the landlubbers. In a brand new Zodiac Community Mission, we want you to hit the open seas for a sharpshooting challenge. There is a ten-legged award in it for those who succeed.

 

Your mission?

We want you to score 5 kills from boats on any game mode or map in Battlefield 4. This mission is active between July 1, 9AM PT and July 6, 2AM PT.

Track the progress of your Community Mission here. You can also see how you’re doing if you bring up Battlelog from your in-game menu – just check the “Missions” tab (PC, PS4, and Xbox One only).

If you’re deadly enough at sea, your reward will be a new Zodiac Dog Tag for your collection (beware, it pinches). Before the mission ends on July 6, 2AM PT, make sure to claim this on the Community Mission page, or in the Battlelog menu that you can access while you’re in the game.

Arrr, me mateys. Arrr.

Battlefield 4 CTE Comes to Xbox One

1 week ago 328

The Battlefield 4 Community Test Environment (CTE) on PC has enabled us to change and improve on Battlefield 4 in an unprecedented way, with the help of your input. Now, we are excited to announce that the CTE is coming to Xbox One.

With continued Battlefield 4 developmental support, this will allow us to iterate on more daring and experimental changes directly affecting Xbox Oneplayers. As a player in the CTE, you will be able to provide your feedback and influence the future of Battlefield 4.

The type of updates on the CTE on Xbox One will be bigger and less frequent than on PC. However, you can still expect regular updates, tests, and prototypes.

As you play the latest build on the CTE, you’ll be able to provide your feedback on the CTE Battlelog forums.

This first release on Xbox One includes the Community Map that’s currently being developed (see the Community Map Project) and three night maps from the “Night Operations Project”. Keep in mind that anything you see in the CTE might not be released into the retail game.

How to Sign Up for the Battlefield 4 CTE on Xbox One

In order to participate, you’ll need to own Battlefield 4 on Xbox One, be a Battlefield 4 Premium member for the Xbox One, and be a member of the Xbox One Preview program (learn how to get invited by a friend who is in the XBPP here). Once you’ve signed up and have been selected, the Battlefield 4 CTE build will be available in the Xbox Marketplace.

For more information about signing up for the Battlefield 4 Xbox One CTE, please visit the Battlefield 4 Xbox One CTE FAQ.

See you on the Battlefield!

FAQ:  Battlefield 4 CTE for Xbox One and You

What is the Battlefield 4 CTE for Xbox One?

The Battlefield 4 CTE, or Community Test Environment, allows gamers to test upcoming releases, tweaks, and changes coming to the full retail version of the game before they are live. This has been instrumental in helping us change and improve on Battlefield 4 in an unprecedented way – all from the input of our community of gamers. That’s right! You, the gaming community, can help test new features, maps, and more while providing feedback to improve the game.

How do I participate in the Battlefield 4 CTE for Xbox One?

To participate in the Battlefield 4 CTE on Xbox One, you must own Battlefield 4 on Xbox One, be a Battlefield 4 Premium member on Xbox One and be a member of the Xbox One Preview program. Once you’ve signed up and have been selected, you will receive an Xbox Message inviting you to download and participate in the Battlefield 4 CTE.

How do I sign up for the Xbox One Preview program?

The Preview program is by invitation only. If your friends are already in the program, they can invite you by using the Invite Friends page in the Xbox Preview Dashboard App. For more information, click here.

Okay, I’m in. Now what? What can I expect from the CTE?

As a player in the Battlefield 4 CTE, you will be able to provide your feedback and influence the future of Battlefield 4. From new maps, weapons, features, and tweaks, you’ll get a preview of items the team is working on.

The type of updates on the CTE on Xbox One will be bigger and less frequent than on PC. However, you can still expect regular updates, tests, and prototypes.

Where can I provide feedback on the changes in the CTE?

Because feedback is such a crucial part of this process, we definitely want you to try out the Battlefield 4 CTE build and let us know what you think on the CTE Battlelog forums.

How come I haven’t been accepted into the BF4 CTE program on Xbox One?

If you haven’t been invited, please be patient. Invites are gradually rolling out and we will be increasing the participant limit as the program continues on.

 

GAMEPLAY PROGRESS, ACHIEVEMENTS, CHARACTERS, CHARACTER DATA AND/OR ANY OTHER VALUE OR STATUS INDICATORS ACHIEVED THROUGH GAMEPLAY IN THE CTE WILL NOT TRANSFER TO THE BATTLEFIELD 4 MAIN GAME. 

Answering your Questions on the Battlefield 4 Spring Update

UPDATE 6/15: Minor edits/changes to answers.

Recently, the Spring Update for Battlefield 4 was released, bringing with it 5 new weapons, the new Gun Master game mode, Netcode improvements, and much more. We’ve seen a lot of excitement around this update – and also some feedback and questions.

Learn More about the Battlefield 4 Spring Update

Get the Full Spring Update Notes (PDF)

Below, we’ve gathered some of the most common Spring Update questions from the community.

How come roof access/ladders were removed from some infantry game Modes?

We are currently monitoring how the Maps and Modes play at the moment, and how these changes affect gameplay and flow of these infantry-focused Modes. So, keep your feedback coming.

How come some details were missing from the Spring Patch Notes?

The SRAW changes were made very early in the process, and therefore was missed. We apologize for the oversight, and are taking your feedback into consideration for future patches.

What’s up with the UCAV and Mortar deploy time?

Changes were made with the best intentions. We want to revisit this to optimize its functionality on the Battlefield.

How come the visuals on the Tracer Rounds are very prominent?

The intentions of Tracer Round visuals were to make them noticeable, but we will be taking your feedback into consideration for future patches.

How come kit specific perks/loadouts reset?

We are aware of this issue and looking into a solution. In the meantime, use the in-game Loadout menus which should work perfectly (per Faction).

How come we are still seeing “netcode” issues?

We are seeing server performance issues on some Platforms in some Regions and are working on a solution. If you experience this issue, please try to find another server.

Why has my favorite weapon been changed so much?

We are fairly happy with the weapon balance at this point, but we are always open to feedback. We suggest trying all of the weapons and providing your feedback on the forums.

Why has Zeroing distance changed?

Zeroing has changed slightly due to a resolved headglitch issue and sniper rifle bullet speed changes. The 100M reflect the actual zeroing distance. Previously it did not.

How come the Mare’s Leg seems very weak? I’m not inclined to use it.

We wanted to make sure it’s not OP when you use it at a distance. We are continuing to balance this weapon.

Why has air weapons been changed?

We felt the weapons needed to be changed to provide a better balance against other vehicle types and infantry. We may have changed a bit too much on Conquest, and are continuing to look at your feedback.

Remember that we’re always listening, so if you want answers you can’t find here – let us know in the comments below or on the forums.

Gun Master Community Mission

As you may know, the Gun Master game mode is now part of Battlefield 4 after the deployment of the Spring Update. Made famous in Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, Gun Master is played like a Team Deathmatch game – but with a twist: you don’t get to choose the weapons used. During a round, weapons are swapped every time you get two consecutive kills on an opponent and whoever is the first player to get a kill with the final weapon in the tier wins.

Now, we want you to deep-dive into the additions of the Spring Update in a brand new Community Mission. Jump into Battlefield 4, get 10 kills with Assault Rifles, and do it before June 8, 2AM PT. So let’s go sharpshooters – there’s a Gold Battlepack in it for you if you succeed.

Before the mission ends, make sure to claim the Gold Battlepack on the Community Mission page or in the Battlelog menu that you can access while you’re in the game.

This mission is active between June 4, 9AM PT and June 8, 2AM PT. You can pursue this mission in either Gun Master or any other Battlefield 4 game mode.

Track the progress of your Community Mission here. You can also see how you’re doing if you bring up Battlelog from your in-game menu – just check the “Missions” tab (PC, PS4, and Xbox One only).
