Community Suggested Changes for Battlefield Hardline

The Battlefield Blog outlines 10 specific changes coming to Battlefield Hardline based on feedback from the recent beta testing of the upcoming shooter sequel. They continue to solicit feedback, and say: "We are doing our best to create an awesome MP experience, and in coming days we are revealing a ton of new multiplayer details including information on maps, modes, guns, gadgets and our single player campaign." Saying they "have a lot of other awesome changes underway and will be sharing more soon," as they share the following plans:

  1. REDUCING FREQUENCY OF EXPLOSIVES
    We have heard your complaints about breaking the cops and robbers experience with the amount of heavy explosive weaponry available – but we didn’t want to sacrifice fun! We’ve made changes to reduce the frequency of explosive use to focus on the core gameplay, and we’ve made the use of explosives much more believable now.
  2. REBALANCING AND RENAMING THE MECHANIC CLASS
    We’ve made the class better in more situations – without sacrificing his ability to take down a vehicle. We’re also looking at renaming it – post your favourite suggestions in the comments!
  3. REVISITING THE IN-GAME HUD
    We’re working on establishing a clearer visual difference from BF4 and improving the messaging of the in-game HUD, from objectives to player status information.
  4. REVISITING THE CUSTOMIZE SCREEN
    We’ve taken a new pass at how the customize screen is laid out, and are making it clearer and easier to manage your gear and weapon attachments. This should address the majority of issues reported.
  5. MAKING THE WORLD DEEPER AND MORE INTERACTIVE
    We’ve been working on adding more touches to the game world, giving players more options and things to do that impact play. Look for interactive objects like doors, radios, ammo lockers, and more!
  6. MAKING ROUNDS LAST LONGER
    A significant amount of feedback during the Beta was received regarding the quick progression of rounds. We’ve made tweaks to both Heist and Blood Money that should help make the experiences last longer without sacrificing any of the fun.
  7. INCREASING TRANSPORT VEHICLE HEALTH
    There were a lot of comments about cars dying too easily from gunfire. We agree that one magazine from the AKM should probably not turn your sedan into a 4-person death trap quite so easily. We’ve also increased the survivability of the utility van.
  8. IMPROVING AUDIO SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
    In some of our game modes, situational awareness is very important. We’re working on improving the audio cues in the environment to help you detect and locate your enemies before they do the same to you.
  9. MEDKITS AND AMMO BOXES SHOULD NO LONGER BLOCK L.O.S. CHECKS FOR REVIVE
    Previously, you could fail to revive someone if a medkit or ammo bag was blocking the line of sight check for the revive mechanic. We are fixing this so that these no longer block you from reviving.
  10. IMPROVING INTERROGATION
    We’ve worked out some changes to the T62 CEW and the Interrogation mechanic. We’re working on making Interrogation only show enemies in a radius around the captured enemy, but show the marked enemies as if they had been Active Spotted by a teammate – making it both more useful and less powerful at the same time.
