New R33 Server Update Fixes The Death Shield Bug - Battlelog Update - BF4

Update Fixes The Death Shield Bug

DICE is rolling out a new server version which fixes the death shield bug that could cause dead players to act as an invisible shield, blocking projectiles. There is also a new Battlelog update which contains several new features, improvements and fixes.

In the newly discoverd bug a revivable body acts as an invisible shield for projectiles and grenades. It looks like the players hitbox remains standing when the player is killed and is waiting for a revive. This bug is most noticeable on maps with narrow corridors like Operation Locker or Operation Métro.
 
This bug has been fixed with the new R33 Server Update.
