Meanwhile, here is the Complete Patch Notes for the new Battlefield 4 patch, released for Xbox 360:

  • Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash
  • Fix for missing sound in Team/Squad Deathmatch
  • Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted
  • Fix for an issue that would appear if a 10 users party would join a game with 8 available slots, leaving 2 of the players stuck on the loading screen
  • Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive
  • Fix for an invisible wall that was incorrectly present in one of the fallen concrete pipes on Zavod 311
  • Fix for an issue where bullet impact sounds weren't properly matching the actual number of impacts, causing the players to feel that they died too quickly.
  • Fix for an issue where the "Draw" message would not display on-screen once a Conquest round ended with both teams having the same amount of tickets
  • Fix for an issue where long IDs wouldn't scroll on dog tags
  • Fix for missing grass physics in terrain
  • Fix for an issue where the player camera would be positioned inside of the soldier when parachute spawning
  • Fix for a MAV exploit that let players reach various out-of-map locations

How to Unlock MTAR-21?

MTAR-21 is not a new weapon in the Battlefield franchise. This is a fan favorite gun that was brought back into Battlefield 4 (via China Rising DLC) from Battlefield 3.

Players have always loved this gun due to its high rate of firing. For players to unlock the MTAR-21, the following steps have to be followed.

  • Gain access to China Rising DLC.
  • Reach rank 10.
  • Multi Talent assignment will then be unlocked.
  • Now, once assignment is open, players have to:

- Make a kill with sniper rifle.

- Make a kill with assault rifle.

- Make a kill with LMG.

- Make a kill with hand grenade

  • All the kills must be made and completed in the same round.
  • The kills might not necessarily have to be on the China Rising map.
