Bad Company 2 Patch Nears

The Battlefield Blog has word that update #3 for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will go live tonight on the PS3, saying the same patch for the Windows and Xbox 360 editions of the military shooter sequel will follow. The new version will offer tweaks, bug fixes, and pave the way for the upcoming release of VIP map pack #7. The patch notes follow.

  • Acog and Red dot scope now equippable on MK-14 and G3.
  • Fixed a bug on PC where the G3 would do less damage than intended.
  • Reduced VADS push back and damage to balance it with the ZU23.
  • Fixed a bug where Vehicle Countermeasures would fail to remove tracer darts at high speed.
  • Reduced the reload time for Vehicle Countermeasures.
  • Slightly increased the AT4's damage vs armor to emphasize its anti vehicle role while keeping it balanced vs armor.
  • Increased the AT4ís top speed and acceleration so users spend less time exposed when firing.
  • Increased the AT4's splash damage so it competes with other AT weapons vs infantry. The AT4 still has the least splash damage of all AT weapons.
  • Reduced the splash damage of the Carl Gustav to bring it in line with other explosive weapons. The Carl Gustav still has the most splash damage of all AT weapons.
  • Increased the 1 shot kill range of the M95 body shot to counter its lower rate of fire.
  • Fixed a bug with the SVU that gave it better close range damage than other semi auto weapons.
  • Reduced all weapon damage to the MCOM by 50%.
  • Fixed a C4 vs MCOM exploit on Atacama Desert.
  • Fixed a bug with FOV when aiming the M1911.
  • Lowered the close range damage of the AN94 to highlight its long range role.
  • Increased the accuracy of the F2000 on the move to highlight its role as a mobile AR.
  • Increased the close range damage of the shotguns to give them a greater advantage vs slugs.
  • Slightly lowered the damage of the M60 to balance its accuracy advantage vs other LMGs.
  • Slightly lowered the damage of the MG3 at close range to balance it with other high rate of fire weapons.
  • Slightly increased the damage of the UH6

Does anyone have any idea at all when they might release the new maps for the PC or when the Vietnam map pack is coming out?

They rather annoyingly haven't given any dates whatsoever other than the vague "Winter 2010". I seem to recall someone seeing a date of the 21st of December on some Euro EA site, but that seems a touch late to me.

That magazine was just guessing. They confirmed that they did not give any dates out to anyone at all about when the Vietnam pack will be released.

I love this game but it still suffers from CTD's between rounds for me so I can only play for so long without getting seriously pissed off with it.

It looks like they are only making gameplay tweaks in the patches new so I'm not holding out much hope of it getting fixed, and there's no chance of me buying the expansion.

You can preorder it on their website. No mention of release dates or which version of the game this will work with, etc. Will this work for Steam, D2D, Retail or EADM versions? From the sounds of stuff they've said before I'm guessing it will work for all versions, but they should really take the time to write one line of text to clarify something so basic.

Without "Acog and Red dot scope now equippable on MK-14 and G3." it is exactly the same patch PC players have and play with since 2 weeks.

Guess this is Ser Carl dying his final death. Damn, I enjoyed taking people out Quake-style. None of them understood how I would kill them so much. "Uh, have you ever played Quake? Shoot the feet."

I think these are the last patch notes. I could be mistaken though.
