DICE has today revealed the lengthy patch notes for the latest update to the building crumbling FPS, Battlefield 3. This patch will be coinciding with the release of Armored Kill, the next DLC map pack that is boasting the largest map in Battlefield history. While the patch notes are quite lengthy, here is a just a snippet of some of the major changes coming to the game:
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.
Belt Fed Machine guns are now more accurate when standing and firing while aiming. This affects the M240, M249, Type88, Pecheneg, and LSAT.
Removed burst fire from the L85 and added Single Shot to the L86 as is authentic for these weapons.
