I love the Battlefield games. I feel like I need to get that out of the way here. I was super excited about Battlefield 4, especially when they first debuted it showing the giant building getting destroyed and how all of the maps will have something crazy like that happen over the course of them. It seemed like DICE had another hit on their hands with Battlefield 4 because, c’mon now how couldn’t they?
Yet I look at my Origin account (grrr) and see that I have something like 30 hours played of Battlefield 4 and for a brief moment will wonder why, then I’ll remember all of the terrible stuff that happened when that game launched. Hell, even months later it was rife with problems. A few of us were sitting down to play and it would be spotty who could connect to a server, who was getting glitches and who could play just fine. It turned into kind of a mess, a mess that didn’t exist in Battlefield 3. The console versions have had their own problems as well.
This video was posted over the weekend and shows yet another ridiculous Battlefield 4 bug, one in a long line of ridiculous bugs, that makes the game so frustrating. This bug is that if there is a revivable body in between you and an enemy, that dead body’s hitbox will remain standing up. That means that rockets, grenades and even bullets are ineffective as long as that body is revivable. What’s worse is that no one has picked this up until now, so it could possibly explain why this game has felt so damned broken.
