    This is going around the Battlelog forums and is supposedly fake.

    Well done for adding AA on the carrier on Noshahr. Will give the US team a chance of fighting back

    I also like...

    Would be nice if you could tinker with your loadout whilst the next map's loading too, ala COD.

    This is my favourite though...

    How do you equip the art book then? :D

    They'll add the ability to equip the art book in the near future for certain servers that ban the use of almost every weapon. You can use it in conjunction with rock throwing

    Decreased the SG553's h-recoil to make it more controllable


    i find it doesn't really have any recoil anyway, but i love this gun so this can only be a good thing.


    Explosives now remain after death


    they use to remain, when the game first came out i found when i planted a C4 charge on a tank that when i got killed when i respawned i could still blow it. Same with mines. always there when i came back. I have no idea why they changed this. Glad it's being changed back. (if this is all true)

    Yes, all explosives have a limit for how many you can have out at once. Once you lay more, the original ones start to disappear. It's normally the same as what you can carry if you have the explosives perk set. So, 6 mines, 2 claymores, etc. I'm all for explosives remaining after death (like mines currently do) as long as you can't then detonate C4 when you spawn back in. That's just cheap kills - even though I used to do that all the time ;)

    I hope they arent bringing it back in because it was plain stupid. Even when you killed the guy putting C4 on your vehicle you knew it was screwed because he'd blow it when respawned.
    And how could it be smart to have some guy lay C4 round a flag or crate to detonate at his leisure without worrying if he died or not.

    i compare it to real life because they try to make these games as close to life as possible, so C4 wouldn't disappear if you died in real life but someone would defuse it, or try to. So they should put an update in where engineers can defuse C4.

    Engineers can remove enemy explosives using the 'x to pick up' method. Or at least they could, not tried for a while.

    You can actually do it with the EOD bot, should you be able to actually steer it.

    I usually ended up road-killing enemies with it by mistake, which didn't count for the assignment.

    Right, here's the official september patch notes:

    Our next client update goes live to coincide with Battlefield 3: Armored Kill. As ususal, it contains a lot of balancing tweaks and fixes. Full details below. Let us know what you think about this update in the comments section below.

    WEAPONS BALANCING
    Reload timer adjustments
    A number of weapons have had their reload timers adjusted to better fit their animations and gameplay balance. For most of these weapons the gameplay timers were slightly out of sync with the actual reload animation, meaning the player could either fire before the animation was done, or had to wait longer than the animation played. Primarily this is a cosmetic change (around 0.1sec); however for a few weapons (M416, F2000, FAMAS, KH2002, MK3A1, JNG90, MG36 QBU-88, SVD, Pecheneg, SCAR-H, AN-94) this should also improve the performance of the weapon. Full details below:
    • Short and Long reload reduced: SCAR-L, AEK-971, F2000, AN-94, AK-74, PP2000, G3A3, SKS, MG36, JNG-90, MK3A1, SCAR-H, SVD, QBZ-95B
    • Long reload reduced: AUG A3, 44 Magnum, KH2002, Pecheneg, L85A2, QBB-95, M1911, MP7
    • Short reload reduced: M417, FAMAS, M39 EBR, M416, PP-19, QBU-88
    • Short and long reload increased: ASVal
    • Long reload reduced, shot reload increased: M4A1
    • Long reload increased: P90

    Damage output/range adjustments
    • UMP: Increased the close range damage of the UMP but reduced its damage over range. The UMP now has a sweet spot in CQB but suffers compared to the PP2000 at longer ranges.
    • PP2000: Increased the long range damage of the PP2000 to highlight its role as a mid-range, low recoil PDW.
    • M1911: Increased the minimum damage of the M1911 to make it fit better between the Magnums and the M9/MP443
    • M93: Reduced the M93R's damage and range, as it was an obvious go to pistol compared to the M9/MP443. Its recoil has been reduced for a smoother burst action to counter the reduced damage.
    • 12G Frag rounds: These rounds have been adjusted to do their damage in a smaller area but to be more consistently apply the maximum possible damage.
    • AA: Slightly increased the damage of the AA against infantry, the AA was simply over nerfed in a previous update. The AA guns now also properly do damage to MBTs again.
    • 12 Gauge buckshot close range damage has been slightly increased.
    • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on the SCAR-H.
    • Increased bullet velocity for the coaxial HMG, making it easier to hit targets over longer ranges.
    • Increased the minimum range of the 40mm Flechette and tightened the cone of fire for more consistent damage levels.
    • Slightly reduced the range bonus added by the heavy barrel on the 5.56mm, 5.45mm, 6.5mm Assault Rifles.
    • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on 5.56mm, 5.45mm, and 6.5mm weapons: AR, Carbine, and LMG.
    • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on the SCAR-H.
    • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on 5.56mm, 5.45mm, and 6.5mm weapons: AR, Carbine, and LMG.
    • Slightly reduced the range bonus added by the heavy barrel on the 5.56mm, 5.45mm, 6.5mm Assault Rifles.
    • Increased the damage of the M5K.

    A select set of weapons have had their recoil adjusted based on joint community feedback and statistical analysis to provide greater balance in the weapon choices players make. Specifically, the M16A3 and M4A1 have increased recoil to make them less attractive in all situations. Competing weapons like the SG553, G36C and M416 have been improved to also increase viable player choice in primary weapons.
    • SG553: Horizontal recoil reduced to help make this weapon more controllable.
    • MG36: Vertical recoil reduced to make this weapon more controllable.
    • M416: Vertical, Horizontal, and First Shot recoil have all been reduced to make this weapon clearly different from the M16A3.
    • M16A3: Recoil amounts slightly increased.
    • M4A1: Recoil amounts slightly increased.
    • G36C: Vertical and First Shot recoil amounts reduced.
    • M16A4 and M4: These weapons have been adjusted for the increased recoil they now have. The burst versions of these weapons give the player a reduction in horizontal recoil for greater control.

    Miscellaneous weapons changes
    • FIM92 and IGLA now lock on to air vehicles at both lower altitudes and longer distances.
    • Added Burst Fire to the M5K as an available fire mode.
    • Increased the bonuses provided by a number of bipods: F2000, G3A3, M27, M416, Pecheneg, Type88, FAMAS, MG36
    • Belt Fed Machine guns are now more accurate when standing and firing while aiming. This affects the M240, M249, Type88, Pecheneg, and LSAT.
    • 44 Magnum: Rate of fire reduced slightly to highlight this side arm's role as a slow firing heavy hitter and differentiate it from the MP412 REX.
    • Increased the fire rate and reload time of the MP412 REX to better highlight the improved CQB performance over the 44 Magnum.
    • Removed burst fire from the L85 and added Single Shot to the L86 as is authentic for these weapons.
    • Slightly increased the radius for maximum damage of the 40mm LVG. While the overall damage level remains the same, the LVG will be lethal over a larger area.
    • Reduced the aimed accuracy bonus of the M417 with a suppressor to balance it with the other weapons in the game.
    • Increased the aimed accuracy bonus of the ACW-R, L86 LSW, LSAT, MP5K and MTAR with a suppressor to balance with the other weapons in the game.

    Weapons fixes
    • Underslung weapons on the AUG and SCAR-L now properly benefit from the hip accuracy bonus of an attached laser sight.
    • The SOFLAM will no longer lock onto your own vehicle if deployed and not immediately activated by the player.
    • SCAR-L: Fixed the heavy barrel not increasing recoil when zoomed and standing.
    • Corrected some incorrect descriptions of clip sizes and bullet types for weapons added in Close Quarters: M5K, LSAT, and ACW-R
    • The PKS-07 is now available on QBB-95
    • The M417's foregrip was incorrectly reducing horizontal recoil by too large an amount. It has been adjusted to be balanced with other foregrips.
    • The ACR Foregrip, MG36, QBB-95 and RPK Extended magazines as well as the RPK and SKS Heavy Barrel are now able to be unlocked and equipped in the accessory screen.
    • Fixed an issue with incorrect damage for the M320 buck when used with certain attachments.
    • MK3A1 now uses flechette rounds instead of Frag rounds in Gun Master mode (in Close Quarters).

    VEHICLE RELATED TWEAKS & FIXES
    • Removed flares from gunner position in helicopters. With the right combination of unlocks, an attack helicopter could be effectively invulnerable to lock on missiles. Removing the flares from the gunner balances the attack helicopter against ground fire.
    • Air Radar now shows friendly vehicles as well.
    • Helicopter weapons can now destroy equipment with splash damage.
    • The Laser Designator unlock on the Scout Helicopters has been changed from a Pilot Upgrade to a new stance in the Copilot seat (position 4). Like the CITV turret on the Main Battle Tanks, the Scout Helicopter's Laser Designator is permanently available to players who have received the unlock.
    • Repair tool damage against enemy vehicles lowered by 10%.
    • Changed reload behavior on Tank / Tank Destroyer cannon weapons to prevent being able to fire 2 shots from different weapons quickly one right after another.
    • Firing mode can now be seen from the vehicle passenger seats where you are allowed to fire your own weapons.
    • Fixed the hit indicator showing when entering a vehicle after previously shooting a soldier.
    • Increased the damage helicopter and jet rockets do to helicopters, jets and infantry.
    • Increased the damage helicopter gunners and IFVs do to helicopters and jets.
    • Fixed Jets not getting top attack damage bonuses on Laser Designated targets.

    PERSISTENCE RELATED TWEAKS & FIXES
    • Changed how MCOM station defend/attack kill score is calculated. Victim no longer needs to arm/disarm the crate but rather be in a 5 meter radius of the crate. Also increased kills needed for the Crate Defend Ribbon from 2 to 4. Overall, these changes should make it somewhat easier to get the ribbon, while increasing the opportunity for strategic play around MCOM stations.
    • Premium Engineer assignments are now counting all shotgun kills independent from the class using it.
    • Fixed so you can get score from awards in coop.
    • Accuracy dogtags now show the correct stats.
    • Coop Stars and dogtag are now properly unlockable and equip able.
    • Gun Master and Domination Winner ribbons and medals added.
    • Fix for assignment with multiple dependencies showing as unlocked in frontend. (Jack of All Trades & Only for the Dedicated)

    UI RELATED TWEAKS & FIXES
    • Added letters to the capture point icons displayed directly over the mini-map.
    • Fixed the grenade counter acting strangely when entering a vehicle with a grenade in hand.
    • Fixed the damage indicator which showed the wrong direction if the damage dealer was dead.
    • Fixed the hit indicator showing when spawning or closing the in game menu.
    • PC specific: Fixed laser designator related icons disappearing from the screen when you enable the chat.
    • Fixed a bug where the clan tag sometimes shows as the player ID.
    • Added clan tags in nametags and kill card.
    • PC specific: Fixed the vehicle hit indicator being shown each time you re-enter the first person camera of a ground vehicle.
    • Fixed so commorose VO works when sitting in an AA vehicle.
    • Fixed so you get the critical health fullscreen color tint while in the post revive state.
    • Removed the join button in the server list for non-Premium users on Premium exclusive servers.
    • Fixed so the spawn menu always disappears when you are revived.
    • Bugfix the colorblind objectives showing the wrong icons and blinking with a black background.
    • Fixed M-Com distance not updating if user moves towards it with EOD Bot.
    • Mortar strike explosions are now shown on the HUD for the shooter.

    MISCELLANEOUS TWEAKS & FIXES
    • Fixed so the MAV gadget will not remain floating in midair if the user exits it while still flying.
    • Fixed bug where it was possible to shoot while transitioning from sprint into prone.
    • Fixed so you can't revive a player who switched team since he died.
    • Fixed two exploits on Donya Fortress that allowed players to get on top of the level.
    • Fixed bug where you could get an incorrectly calculated longest headshot with the EOD bot.
    • PS3/Xbox 360 specific: Added map rotation settings to preset list in detailed server info. Players can now see all relevant settings that are being run on the server.
    • Xbox 360 specific: Introduced a clickable promotional spot on the main menu.

    I can't keep a chopper in the air for 2 minutes so the loss of gunner flares doesn't help me any, also there upping the recoil on my favourite weapon the M4A1.
    I'll get over it though.

    Given that BF3 occupies a huge chunk of my hard disk, once update 4 is d/l does anyone know if I need to keep all the previous updates?

    Another 3Gb!! Damn I'd better start and think about a bigger HD, I've only got 100Gb left. Come Aftermath I'm gonna be screwed!

    There doesn't seem anything too bad in there. Hopefully the gun tweeks are getting minor now, so it won't change the whole charateristic of the gun.

    I'm going to switch it straight on when I get in from work and start the download of the patch. At least the patch is available today and the DLC is next week, so it's split. If you had to do 3Gb in one go you'd be there all day!
