Improvements in General

  • The End of Round sequence now explains what will happen after this transition phase. For example, if you switch sides if you stay in the lobby. You’ll now also be presented with a prompt to confirm if you’d like to exit – this will help reduce accidental quitting to the main menu.

  • Increasing the size of the minimap will no longer also increase the size of the icons.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the visuals of a ping to display incorrectly.
  • Fixed an issue where the base circle VFX on a location ping was sometimes missing.

Controller Mapping As part of update 3.2.0 and the Return to the Class System, the Default Mappings for Controller Layouts were updated to accommodate the addition of the new Class Gadget slot as well as accompanying gameplay changes. Due to these changes we'll need to reset Custom Layouts for controllers.

  • Throw Grenade

  • Plus Menu Navigation (Choosing of Attachments)

Before you begin a match, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with these changes and upgrade and re-customize your controls.

  • Portal – Battlefield 3 – Fixed an issue where the SFX for detonation was not functioning properly when using a C4 remote detonation.
  • Custom Portal experiences that have PvP AI (but not PvE) and no other change than to the map list will have Ribbons XP enabled, Mastery Progression up to Tier 12 and Weekly Missions enabled instead of the usual Restricted XP.


Breakaway is a group of experts who meet and mingle together.

  • The Penguins have filled in a hole near B1 where players were unable to get out of if they had fallen victim to it. Pesky penguins.

Specialists are on the rise.

Casper is a scientist.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Casper’s OVP-Recon Drone to be able to destroy certain map objects it wasn’t intended to.

Crawford is a well-known actress.

  • Fixed an issue that resulted in no health bar being present while repairing Boris’ Sentry Gun and Ranger whilst playing as Crawford.

Dozers are used sparingly.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the throwing knife to generate a ricochet bullet when hitting Dozer’s Ballistic Shield

Falck is a well-known Dutch author.

  • Fixed an issue that caused shockwaves from explosions to interrupt Falck’s self-heal interaction.

Lis is a lawyer who works in the United Kingdom.

  • Reduced the maximum range of Lis’ G-84 TGM from 600m to 475m.
  • Reduced the boost speed of Lis’ G-84 TGM from 150m/s to 110m/s.
  • Tightened the turning angles of Lis’ G-84 TGM.
  • Adjusted the input clamping when boosting with G-84 TGM in accordance to the new turning angles.
  • Reduced the acceleration modifier when boosting with Lis G-84 TGM from 1.85x force to 1.15x force.

Dev Comment: With these tweaks, we're aiming to push Lis towards a higher skill ceiling (more skill required to master) and to improve the vehicle player experience. This will make the missile less agile, limiting it's ability to double-back on itself after an initial miss.

The increased speed and acceleration reductions will give car players greater control over when they react to an inbound missile.

We want players to have a clear target to attack with the TGM before it is fired, as we saw in update 3.2.1, and these tweaks as well as the speed and max range reductions are all designed to address this.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Paik to be unable to use her EMG-X Scanner in passenger seats

What IS NEW?

Flashpoint's New Map Take a look at The Richtersveld, an arid, rocky South African battlefield where the conflict will get up-close and personal with our latest location, Flashpoint.

Water Treatment Get your crew together and move to flag A1, a short to medium vehicle friendly combat zone that you must take command of. Don't risk losing it to the enemy.

Wellspring Access Move forward with your squad to flag B1, but keep your wits about you as this multi-tiered short to medium close-quarters combat zone will be flooded with enemies.

Fuel Processing Get your crew in the CAV-Brawler and get straight into the fray at flag C1. The close-quarters combat will be all around you at every turn. As a word of caution, keep an eye on sharpshooters.

Construction Tunnel As you enter the battle inside, any infantry at your side will be able to escape.

Extraction of Minerals It's only a short trek across the desert to identify E1, where a new structure and a site tower awaits.

Reactor Maintenance Regroup your squad and lead the way to flag F1. A huge Team Deathmatch inspired space that's yours for the taking – all wrapped around a massive, central reactor core. A close-quarters combat dream.

Solar Substation Push onwards to flag G1 and lock it down fast. This is one flag you want to control. Keep the enemy back!

Camila "Blasco" Our last Specialist enters the fray with Season 4: Eleventh Hour.

Camilla Blasco, an expert in ambush tactics, is on her way to execute deadly assaults on unaware foes with her reconnaissance training and tactical gear.

Placing this device on the ground creates a dead zone in the immediate area, preventing enemy spotting technology and preventing lock-ons from hostile missiles. This handy device will also detect and reveal enemy devices within the immediate dead zone area, allowing you to quickly clean up any enemy intrusion around your objective.

Blasco is able to move swiftly past motion-based Gadgets like Claymores, T-UGS, or Proximity Sensors and larger equipment like Boris' SG-36 Sentry Gun thanks to her reconnaissance training.

Blasco is the ideal game for players seeking for a sneaky approach. However, be aware that you may be able to fool enemy devices, but you may not achieve such results with the actual enemy.

CAV-Brawler, a new vehicle, is capable of traversing small spaces while still providing ample protection for your squadmates inside it.

The primary function of this vehicle is as a squad spawner due to its excellent maneuverability. Your squad has the ability to spawn on this vehicle and actively join you in the push.

This is the infantry trojan horse you're looking for, both with an active threat detection system as well as a defensive system that blasts bullets out in all directions.

AC9 SMG, RM68 Assault Rifle, RPT-31 LMG, and Super 500 Shotgun are among the new weapons.

As you battle it out in the rocky industrial areas of Flashpoint, Season 4: Eleventh Hour has a wide range of weaponry to match any scenario.

AC9 SMG An extremely light submachine pistol that is well-built for quick hipfire exchanges. With its improved receiver ergonomics this small submachine pistol is more maneuverable than its high firing rate would make you believe.

The RM68 assault rifle is a next-generation assault rifle with a distinctive and suppressive design. The built-in silencer provides added stability and recoil control. Take full advantage of the integrated canted sights to adapt to any situation in front of you.

RPT-31 LMG If an SMG or Assault Rifle isn't your cup of tea when it comes to weaponry, then this RPT-31 prototype LMG may be just what you need. It also includes a new "flip-scope" attachment that allows you to tackle encounters as you see fit.

This high risk and high reward sidearm shotgun is designed for short range encounters, and you'll soon find yourself dominating the battlefield as you breach those objectives.

SPH Explosive Launcher is a new gadget.

The SPH Explosive Launcher is great for destruction and anti-infantry play. It has a durable payload that can be attached to players, vehicles, and whatever other surface on the battlefield.

The SPH Explosive Launcher is now available for the Assault Class as a selectable gadget, and it can launch up to two missiles that are housed inside the casing before needing to be reloaded.

Type-88 LMG and SVD are new Vault Weapons.

In the All-Out Warfare arsenal, two iconic weapons from the old days will be available as Vault Weapons.
