Battlefield 3 Armored Kill: Incoming fixes detailed

Update being readied as DLC prepares for Xbox 360 and PC launch

DICE has outlined a number of upcoming fixes for Battlefield 3's Armored Kill DLC.


The add-on pack is in the middle of a staggered rollout, having debuted for PS3 Battlefield Premium members last week. Xbox 360 and PC Premium members will get access tomorrow, while the DLC will go on general sale later this month.

Gustav Halling, a lead designer on the game at DICE, said the following fixes are being readied to go live "late this week (Thursday/Friday) or early next week (Monday/Tuesday) for all platforms", and that they'll be applied server side, meaning players don't need to update anything.

  • Mobile Artillery: The Mobile artillery's "Proximity Defense" unlock is causing players to "suicide" when being used in both vehicles with higher reprorate in the US HIMARS.
  • Gunship in Rush: Defenders have been having a hard time winning the last week and we are making tweaks to even out the battlefield =) The Gunship will respawn after 90 seconds instead of 60 seconds in Rush after being destroyed.
  • Alborz Mountains Conquest Large (PC only): On conquest large there is a bug where the Russian attack helicopter doesn't show up in the spawn menu. It is however spawned in so either drive down to it or use a airplane as a "spawner" closer to it.
