DICE has released the latest PC patch for Battlefield 4 on schedule and this one addresses the “one-hit kill bug” among other tweaks.
DICE state in the notes that they are now “working hard on a new update to further increase stability” which indicates that this patch may not help everyone who has been experiencing problems.
It sounds like these patches could go on for while yet. With China Rising DLC just around the corner, hopefully DICE will push to get any remaining issues ironed out.
