Developer DICE has rolled out a new new server version for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4, according to an official post on Battlelog. The new update includes a number of tweaks to the Commander Mode, but also unlocks the M1911 pistol scope for all players as a reward for sticking it through the tough launch.
According to the update notes players will now find that battlepack boost times are now being used when playing as Commander and that a fix for the 100 rank cap when playing as tablet Commander.
DICE previously promised the M1911 scope as part of their Player Appreciation Program. The scope has a 3X zoom and can be used by all classes and was previously a scope exclusive to DICE developers. To actually gain access to the scope in-game you'll need to have the weapon unlocked, then hit up the customisation option and select the scope.

Try dropping AA and Textures to test if your VRAM is bottlenecking you. VRAM lag feels like vsync input lag. Smooth, but not snappy or responsive.

well I just got a GTX760 about 5 minutes ago, will see how this handles it. I think it might be more connection lag but it just feels like I'm not hitting my targets. I don't know if it's just my s***** aim or whether it really is laggy. I mean my ping is under 50 (sometimes under 30) but still feels like I'm playing against a server full of Neo's. I can hit them when they're running in a straight line away from me though.
edit: Also does it make a difference whether you run the 32 or 64 bit version? like is one more prone to issues than the other?
Ok so new video card made a slight difference but I think I've figured out what bugs me. It's almost like you can only do one thing at a time. You can't shoot, press aim down sights and have it aim. You have to stop shooting, aim, shoot some more. It's like the game can only handle one input from each device at once. Jumping over broken walls is also quite lame, you walk up to it and just kind of bounce until he decides to get over it. There's no jump + duck to get over s*** like there is in CoD and he doesn't automatically climb over broken walls. Normal, low walls yeah, but not broken buildings.
All in all movement just feels spongy like you're controlling a guy via some stiff bits of wire rather than actually BEING the player.

Jumping and ducking is a bit lame, I don't see many soldiers doing that lol
I don't have much of an issue with lag I am normally under 30ms, I had a game last night with Server lag but so was everyone else.

But its a great game, its the best i've played in this style. Squad and join on Squad is great.
I'm rank 64 and it feels easy to progress, gun variety is good, vehicles are great. Maps play very different.
I do not have premium, won't buy it until they fix the issues, but I won't give up on it yet.
PS. Boats are cool.

It's not as good as BF:BC2, and probably not worth the money at the moment IMO.
