New Battlefield 4 patch causing sound issues: reports

Players are reporting severe sound issues with the latest BF4 patch on both PC and consoles.

Battlefield 4 sound problem

DICE released a massive Battlefield 4 patch yesterday on all platforms, which mostly dealt with fixing bugs and improving performance. However, some players are reporting that the patch has brought with it some new problems.

According to reports on the official Battlelog forums, Twitter, and even in comments here on BF4Central, the latest patch is causing sound issues across all platforms.

Players are experiencing loss of all sounds in the game except the end of round tune that is looped every five minutes in the background. The sound problem appears to be happening on both Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Some PC players are reporting the same problem though, adding that the game still crashes to desktop, even more than with last patch.

It should be noted that not all players are reporting these problems. Some, especially those on PC, say that Battlefield 4 runs better and with no issues at all.

However, it appears that the sound issue is a serious one, especially on consoles. Last Battlefield 4 patch added some bugs as well, especially on the netcode side. Hopefully DICE figures out what went wrong and rolls out a quick patch to fix the sound glitches.

Sound problems are nothing new to Battlefield 4 — the game shipped with looped and broken sound on several maps, most prominently on Lancang Dam, where the sound would loop and cut out at times. This bug was later fixed in an update.

What’s your experience with the new Battlefield 4 patch? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!

        I have the same problem on PS4, you have to let one round finish and then it fixes itself. I love this game, but EA and Dice are making it so hard with all the bugs.

          Yup, on pc it does the same thing.. started happening after the update..
          i run the game in the middle of a round and i get background noise, but no FX sounds (bullets, players etc..)… have to let the round finish in order to get the sound fixed…

      I’m having sound issues as well on xbox 360….cannot hear footsteps, gunfire or any actual gameplay background…only music playing constantly…what is up?… was playing fine before this patch….they have to fix it or get rid of this patch all together…..

      • Tim
        February 4th, 2014 at 11:36 am

        I found that if i play the round out with NO sound … and wait until the round ends.
        The next round plays fine with Sound.

        Work Around

      I am experiencing this as well. it pisses me off. My K/D has went down to 1.24 because I do not know where I am being shot at. I have war tapes on so I can have a crisper sound and hear enemies nearby. I love Battlefield. but this shit needs to be fixed this time two days ago. its like they didn’t even test it before releasing it.

      February 4th, 2014 at 1:12 pm

      I don’t get DICE, if it aint broke, don’t break it, they screwed up the sound and the re-spawn time is faaaar too long after the December update, there’s more lag, the spam spotting was great on BF3, and it is beyond me why you would remove customising your weapons from the soldier menu. Was a fan but I wouldn’t roll out a game that made you who you are with that many annoying bugs.

      BF4 on 360 has been getting progressively worse with all the patching. On 10th Feb I decided to put my copy in a drawer until I hear that its stable. Its just not worth the hassle. Sound not starting, gameplay glitching constantly and that last night I played BF4 my console froze 4 times in about 20 minutes forcing a restart of the console. I couldn’t finish a round of conquest regardless of what map I was on. Utterly terrible.

      Regretting the purchase – I bought the game and premuim straight on launch on the strength of BF3, which gave me over 167 hours of online fun. BF4 has been £80 down the pan for me until such time as DICE/EA decide to devote serious time and effort to fixing the 360 version. Given that PC and PS4/Xbox One are obvious priorities I’m guess that will be a while, if ever.

      Not moving platform – I don’t see why I should. I bought the game, you have my money – fix it, huh??

      Can I get a refund on the game + premium?
      this game has been crap since it launched they’ve yet to make it playable and I was dumb enough to buy it on 2 platforms PC & PS4.

      I’m done with EA/Battlefield I won’t be buying the next one and COD is complete arcade trash so time to find a better FPS experience elsewhere.

      I bought this game try to play it with all its glitches, bugs and rests, now 2 month later they put assault patch into accion , so half the maps i cant play, and it has started to glitch morethan ever and in the middle of the games it takes me out of the server, and they want me to buy? Assault patch. Really think this is last battlefield i buy and probabley dice, te thing is i really used to like this game.

    I haven’t even played yet… I planned on crashing in front of my TV after school and spending the next 6 hours playing BF4 on PS4 only to find a patch of 995 MB which took 9 hours to install……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Still waiting for it to finish

      If you were a true battlefield player. U wouldnt resort to cod. Even tho battlefield has its its issues. The adrenaline rush that the battlefield gives is the best of all other shooters ive ever played. Cod is bugless but 40xs more frustrating. IMO

      • Willy P
        January 31st, 2014 at 5:25 pm

        Agree fully. Bf4 has way more bugs than COD no doubt but…..the new cod is totally uninspiring and very boring IMO. That’s why I sold cod hehe

        • Bendover
          February 1st, 2014 at 12:14 pm

          Ye that’s why you sold cod and are now playing cod in bf4!
          You cod noobs should stay in cod and don’t come to bf,cause your destroying the game with your cod tactics,and camping!
          Battlefield is getting ruined by all the cod players that sold cod!
          Learn to play bf,that means taking flags,conquest,support your team!
          But nooooo,let’s just camp like we did in cod…..go back to the store and pick up cod again….can’t wait for the rented servers so we can kick all the fake bf players and all the campers who don’t no how to play the game!

          • Beanstah
            February 2nd, 2014 at 3:50 pm

            I agree. I tried playing cod the other day for the two player and nothing but people camping camping the whole time. Cod is definitely a boring ass game especially with everyone just camping the whole time.

    • David Bradshaw
      February 4th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

      Call of duty? Lmfao. Ive got it and its crap. Crap graphics and stupid music and voice over on muliplayer.

      Be real, battlefield is for serious players who like a challenge and play as a team. Its not all kill to death like cod.

    Had the end of game sound looping over once on a game in 6 hrs of play. I continue to have issues with the battlelog menu and not seeing friends. Have to go into my psn friends list and join games there or type in the server number in search. No friends show as playing in the menu, nor do my saved servers.

    The Jan 30 update completely broke BF4 for me and many others (see The game will not load the main menu so we can’t even play offline. I reinstalled from PSN and same problem after update. Bugs are one thing but complete failure to load is quite another.

      Right? And what’s really cheap and stupid of them is, after ALL of the crashing and annoying sound loop bugs and freezes, they give us a lame apology in a crappy battlepack and dog tag. Like get the hell out of here, if you slap a child across the face and give him a dollar in apology, you’ll get a kick in the balls and believe me, I’d love to give the bug-fixing team at Dice plenty of nutshots for practically stealing my money.

    I have had sound issues on the Xbox but have noticed it not to be a issue with all game modes I play tdm when nobody is around and dom with my friends.. Tdm I have issues but on Dom it worked perfectly fine.. Looks like until its fixed I will just have to stick with what works.. Hope they pull there finger out and don’t mess it up more trying to rush a fix..

    Game will not load from battlelog sign in screen (rain on the concrete screen). The loading indicator is moving, which I guess means that it isn’t frozen, but still the game does not move from this screen. What the hell happened now?!

    There’s no sound in the game, there’s only the background music that keeps on playing during the match in an annoying way. Plus there’s too many crashes in the game after downloading the latest update, the games exit by itself while playing..

    You cannot make me believe that after a botched release, like 5 or 6 patches now and still no relief in sight that no one over at EA or DICE has gotten shit canned over this? They are in way over their heads and no one seems to know how to fix anything without breaking more.. GET IT TOGETHER

    January 31st, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    im having the looping sound issue during the loading screen, sometimes i can find a server with no problem but thats rare now. and the feed screen when finding a server scrolls too fast, not that i care but it needs to be fixed also.

    January 31st, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    Can’t play air superiority any more after new update, completely broken.
    Loads ok, then loses connection to server..!!
    Ps. Can anyone tell me if there are going to be any servers other than the official Dice servers, like in Battlefield 3.
    I used to like to choose the game play rules, like no stinger/igla etc..

    January 31st, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    Well, i play on PC and my sounds are gone with the update. But this is still improvement, because for about a week i just couldn’t connect to any server, so now at least i could get in to the game.

  24. Heil Jessi
    January 31st, 2014 at 9:42 pm

    Yup, that’s the exact same problem I’m having on PC. Makes it really hard to play, since I depend on sound greatly while playing. Kinda freaky, too, feels like I’m deaf (minus the end of round music every few minutes).

  25. Heil Jessi
    January 31st, 2014 at 9:44 pm

    Same exact thing is happening to me (down to the timing of the end of round music) I also have the little beeps when I respawn and what not but that’s about it. I’m on PC, so I can’t agree with those claiming it’s better on the PC now.

    January 31st, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    When i play online sometimes i cant hear the guns running breathing or anything but the music for when the match is over which is weird then a beeping noise comes on thought it was my ps4 but i paused the game then when i un paused the game it starts beeping again

  27. ashley hearst
    January 31st, 2014 at 11:06 pm

    yep my sound broke aswell in multiplayer. plays fine in single player but since reading up about it they say its certain modes and ive only tryed team deathmatch. but yes just the end of round tune i have and im on PC so its defferently happening for consoles and pc. im gutted to be fair as i just brought this game and premium not long before the update which everything was fine until. i suppose thats ea for you but what can you do as they bring out the best named titles just dont do it properly. it is to bad they keep messing up because people will give up on them 1 day if not already because as battlefield 4 is there main priority its leaving other ea games that need fixing behind eg. need for speed rivals. i think ive learned my lesson now anyway i wont be buying ea games now until i no there fixed and working which by then no 1 will proberly play online anymore just my luck :)

    I am having a problem playing air superiority. I keep losing connection with the server. Frustrated but I know the folks at EA/Dice are doing what they can. Please fix ASAP. I see no need to get upset about it. Me crying and cussing isn’t going to fix the problem any faster. Just wanted to make EA/Dice aware of the problem

    February 1st, 2014 at 4:10 am

    Same here, no sound on some servers. Especially when I join a game a friend is in. I’m playing on ps4 and had no crashes on multiplayer but it’s been crashing on campaign, often in times when there’s a lot graphically going on onscreen. How do they over look something so massive as sound, do they not test these patch updates? or are we the lab rats

    February 1st, 2014 at 4:20 am

    Ah yeah also. What are you other guys playing when you get no sound? because for me right now the no sound glitch seems to only be on team death match. Anybody else find it the same?

        Hahaha yeah. Same thing happend to me, I started a round of team deathmatch and had no sound except for that dubstep like end of round song loop (wich I’ve now come to be annoyed by) every couple of minutes. Kept playing tho, got knifed because I couldn’t hear the guy behind me, then respawned with no weapon for about two minutes

    I had my first match after this patch installed, and everything’s working fine for me. Didn’t have and sound bugs, although I did have the usual odd rubber banding in some areas, also the 0 health glitch. But other than that everything seems to be ok.

    February 1st, 2014 at 7:12 am

    Dice is so worried about “balancing” weapons/vehicles that they are ignoring that fact that their patches actually do NOTHING to help the existing problems with BF4. People have been complaining for MONTHS now about xbox360 and Dawnbreaker/Conquest freezing constantly and almost 4 patches later, it still exists… or they keep saying they fix the sound issues or the bouncing tanks at the beginning of matches, yet they are happening worse than ever…yet they had time to worry about nerfing this gun or modifying this vehicle. It really shows they have no clue how to support their customers. Now they throw a “customer appreciation” week at us and expect that a couple pieces of free crap will make us forget that it is February now and this game still isn’t fixed… I wish they would stop worrying about the small, petty stuff and actually put 100% of their time/effort into actually making the game stable and bug-free.

    I have sound problems, an infinite loop of the sound of the final game and occasionally hear something explocion (after 10min without sound something sound and be a explocion, almost caused me a heart attack :|), this me problem only occurs on some servers, not at all, at the end of each game have some sound, but is lost from initiating the next. This problem only occurred to me after the last upgrade of the game. Waiting for an early upgrade new game.

    February 1st, 2014 at 8:49 am

    I don’t spend all day playing BF4 on Xbox but when I want to play…I want to play! The experience with BF4 has been a complete disappointment! I can see how they’ve improved the game over BF3 but all these issues have me looking for a different game to play. For the cost of these games, you would think customer service would be of the highest caliber…but not from these snot nosed arrogant pricks who just take our money and laugh. I too have no sound since downloading the latest patch. There are other issues like getting into a game…it displays the map you are about to enter…then nothing happens…then a black screen and then another (different) map appears. It takes forever to get into a game and when you finally do, “Jackass-Jake” is spawn camping and can’t wait to eliminate you before your gun even appears. That’s another problem… when you re-spawn, it sometimes takes 5-10 seconds before you can see or use your weapon…WTF!

    Only sound is the end-of-game riff on loop.
    And worse is none of my shots hit any target no matter how close.
    I normally find this game lags even though I’m on a 150Mb connection.
    Unplayable. I’m sad.

    Game freezes on me between 5 to 30 minutes of gameplay on the 360. EA and Dice should be ashamed to present such a flawed product that they fail to correct. Which is either a display of their incompetence or total lack of respect for BF4 purchasers. They had a lot of balls to release this game with it’s documented flaws and then to charge $50 for premium on top of that. Shame on these greedy bastards.

    February 1st, 2014 at 10:26 am

    PS3 updated, after new patch I sometimes get no sound and new sights aren’t unlocked on Battlelog after getting enough kills as still showing 3/10 kills towards P90 sights even tho just killed 24 last game!

    No sound except the background music. Seems like DICE should have worked on this game for an additional year.

    bf4 is almost unplayable without sound it better be fixed soon

    On PC, sound is messed up on first map played, but clears for the second map. If player leaves the server or exits out of game, it starts over again. This happened after the latest patch and numerous complaints from players in game.

    Only music, no sound on PC. Had such high hopes for this patch…

    cannot hear any footsteps, gunfire or any sounds from online gameplay at all except for music playing…i’m using xbox 360 ….havent had it crash but I’m definitely experiencing the sound issues since the patch….

  59. Jac
    February 1st, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    Have no audio, except the occasional grenade and looping end of match music since last update for the Xbox One. Really getting sick of updates to make it better when they just screw everything else.

    February 1st, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    I have the sound problem described above, but only on deathmatch maps. It’s ok on conquest for some reason. It worked fine before the patch too. Not a happy soldier.

    February 1st, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    Well now BF4 is totally unplayable for me no sound , crashes even more, and most of the time it just sits there and does nothing. looks like it loading but just sits there playing the sound that the end of the game is coming.

    I can’t win with this XB1 nothing works I’m hoping the new update in March will fix some things if not I will demand my money back.

  62. Frigity
    February 1st, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    Since the jan 30th update my sound has been working off and on. Sometimes playing the end of the match music looped

  63. Jake
    February 1st, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    It is just me or with this new patch i cant play air superiority PERIOD. I can join (sometimes) i try to spawn and next thing i know i lose connection. BUT i can play ANY other game mode like TDM or Conquest no problems at all. Anyone else with this bug/ problem?

Half these shitheads in here if you go order food the mess it up do u say oh well they will do better next time no you go say its wrong they fix it right that time no harm no foul but if they don’t your like gimme my money back that’s how I’m feeling with bf4 if you spent your hard earned money on this u want a good product that’s what the person who is selling the product should have all these kids living off mommy and daddy and these blog nut huggers saying true fans don’t go to Cod fuck off I’m a true fan of I paid gimme my shit right CAN I GET A AMEN FROM THR WORKING CLASS PEOPLE OUT THERE!

    What we’ve been seeing with BF4 since launch pertains to something I can I mentioned in the comments on another BF4 patch related story involving, “The 2 Development Banes of DICE”. This involves Bane #2. Bane #2 being (and I quote from the past) “DICE releases patches that fix everything DICE intends to fix but then breaks a lot of the game they didn’t intend to break.” How this happens is improper QA testing (or another way to describe it is QA testing done halfway).

    Let me explain: DICE likely tests the patches to the point they confirm that all they wanted to fix or add to the game has been properly implemented and working and then just release it to the wild. By doing that, they are missing an important step of QA testing. This being after they know they got everything working that they wanted working they likely didn’t further test the patch to confirm they didn’t accidentally break anything else. And I mean accidentally because do you really think DICE knew about these types of problems creeping up nearly every time they launch a patch for any BF game? No, because they likely didn’t further test to find them. Again, they likely only tested to the point that their changes and fixes and additions they wanted into BF anything were properly implemented and then just let it go. Just trying to provide further understanding is all. Out!

  71. Joseph
    February 1st, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    Yeah, I’m not able to play the game because the sound is completely ruined. How am I supposed to enjoy the game when I can’t even play correctly? So frustrating…

  72. Joseph
    February 1st, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    Chris, I agree completely. Just supports the report that EA was deemed worst company in America for 2013. Still is…

    February 1st, 2014 at 6:50 pm

    Sound issues here, for first round I get the end of match loop every five minutes. That was until today, when I launched bf4 on my ps3 and it won’t even load the main menu, just a constant loading icon. WTF DICE

  74. OTC
    February 1st, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    After Xbox 360 patch 6 my sound is only the theme at end of round. Can not hear guns, foot steps, explosions, etc. Comes and goes on different maps.
    Also noticed that I was getting killed many times with the other player showing like 1%, 0%, or 9% after I put about 5-7 rounds in them. Not sure if this is a netcode error or hack. Screen froze on Dawn Breaker map when I was using P2000. I did notice many other common glitches do appear to be corrected.
    Looks like update 7 will be in our future.

  75. Alex
    February 1st, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    Same here ps4 system. Im very upset about game, bug when loading map, sometimes just black screen, need restart game. Then bug with sound from last update, and four-squeres on my tv in right top corner. They flicking sometimes, that same after update. How dice can sell the game so bugged. And now past 3 mounth and still so epic bugs. I go trade this morning bf to cod, i dont care i like shooter games, im jot a fan of cod but its more stable, so bye bye bf4, i dont wannna wait half a yer till they fix, inhave no time, i just wanna come home after work play normally few matches, instead of it i upset myse
    F cause of shitty bags.

  76. Chase
    February 1st, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    I quit this game for close to 2 months hoping it would get better, and I get this shit. The new patch launches and I decide “well its time to give it another chance I guess” first game I join no sound second game no sound 3rd game still no sound AND BOOM GAME CRASH. I could see this in the beta, but in a full game this is just unacceptable. Just another company pushed by EA into launching a game before its even ready.

  77. Curtis
    February 1st, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    I cant even get the game to load up after the latest download. Not even to play single player? What a joke of a game and company! Bring something out to make a game better and instead makes it 100% worse!!!!

    WHAT gives dice Help

  80. What about counter-knife
    February 2nd, 2014 at 1:13 am

    does anyone know if they have patched the counter-knife feature? Last time someone knifed me from the front, the QTE didn’t appear. What’s the story with it?

  81. Cory
    February 2nd, 2014 at 2:15 am

    I play on XBox & since the update I have no audio with the exception of the ‘end of round sound’ & the random ‘background shouting’. The game has had B.S. going on since its first day released (I bought my copy in advance & was playing at noon on the release date)This is Unacceptable & G.A.R.B.A.G.E. ‘EA’ I now understand why you have been voted yet again as ‘The Worst Company in America’. I thought I graduated from COD, yet I am now uncertain if their minor glitches & player trash talk is worse or better than your ability as a huge player in this market to remedy your issues. I’m hoping that ‘Destiny’ & or ‘TitanFall’ can figure it out; If so I will be jumping ship & wreaking P.R. havoc on E.A.. FU EA,,, You make tons of money on a handful of games & it is time to deliver. You got my $60+$60(premium). time to deliver. This gaming giant has no excuse!

  82. Cory
    February 2nd, 2014 at 2:26 am

    Fix the ‘Invisible apponent’,you hear them, their shots hit you with the directional hit marker, they are right in front of you, but they are invisible. Yeah that ‘I was killed by a guy with %0 health ‘Get the F*#K outta here’, give him a percentage of health, 0 is 0 = DEAD. Fix the tanks loading with the hopping around like a methhead on acid is ‘hittin switches in yo ride’. EA is ripping off a lot of people & perhaps a group of anonymous individuals might take it apon themselves to take action.

  83. Cybercom
    February 2nd, 2014 at 2:27 am

    on PC I have the same sound issue but I could solve it:
    goto the folder documents/battlefield 4/settings
    and find the file PROFSAVE_profile

    change the line GstAudio.AudioQuality 0(may be different)
    to:GstAudio.AudioQuality 4

    this changes it to wartapes quality audio

    then find the line with GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 20(may be diff)
    and change it to GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 64
    or GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 32(if your sound card is cheapo)

    this changes the amount of audio channels BF4 can use, 20 is really really low, which means in big audio situations with alot going on, the sounds get cut off.

    and this one is optional, GstAudio.StereoMode 0
    to GstAudio.StereoMode 1

    so to recap the lines should be:

    GstAudio.AudioQuality 4
    GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 64
    GstAudio.StereoMode 1

    February 2nd, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    PS4 version. I have the end of game sound loop. Consistant ruberbanding, horible lag and after check my connection abd my ping is sitting in the low 30s. My upload and download speeds are alway great to. I have the 0 percent health and its not even close to what they are showing. I mean 40 or percent higher health is freaking retarted. EA asvwe all know is a horrible company when it comes to online multiplayer ganes, but wtf. Why patch weapons when you need to focus on server issues. Thats where you shoild first look into fixing.

  98. Allan

    none of these bugs are new I have experienced the same crap every day since I got the game they are starting to fix some stuff but not fast enough. I have absolutely no sound for up to a minute when entering any vehicle at any point during the match

  102. Yura Homoh
    February 2nd, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    keep buying more DLC and giving more money to EA/DICE… i’m sure they spend in all on QA for the next patch… The reason they’re not hurrying up to release a fix is because they are aware, just like their customers, that nobody will buy BF5 as long as they’re the devs behind it…

  103. BF4 is beyond fixing
    February 2nd, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    this game is beyond fixing. stats keep resetting can’t change anything, gun has a delay to spawn once you have spawned, assault rifles don’t work, DMRS are basically tapping someone on the shoulder and saying I’m a free kill. LMGS don’t fire, vehicles are shit. “SPAWN, DIE”. The only weapon that does work is the ak5. even that is a peice of shit.

    February 2nd, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    I’m used to playing with no sound anyways. I have noticed the sound is not looped 100% of the time. It seems when I join a game the sound gets messed up, but after the next game starts everything is fine again.

    I’m not sure why everyone is having such a big fit over no sound? At least you have ears that work in the first place and eyes so you can see lol.The people not even being able to play offline are the ones that should really be up set. Everybody else needs to chill.

    when I turn on my xbox one and I put in bf4 I cant hear any audio. this only happens if I start a match and it has all ready started then I cant hear the audio but if its not all ready started I can hear everything.I wish that dice could bring out a game with at least one bug, I guess that is not the case.

  117. Oliver
    February 3rd, 2014 at 11:11 am

      Its not dice, its E fricking A, they push dice to get the game out in time of call of bleeding duty. Greedy money grabbing gets.
      COD is crap, played it and is very boring. Full of kids and campers.
      I hope they fix this game. Its brilliant. EA are in trouble with the law on this. Tut tut.

    Please fix these annoying bugs Dice!!!

  119. keri
    February 3rd, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    EA Do this on everygame..
    There should be some law that states they cant release a game until it has been fully tested and i mean fully tested ( on all platforms ).
    There testing is mainly weapon ballance and then they release to public.
    Iv been playing from BF2 and iv seen the same shit over and over, and i will not be buying any more battlefields or premium membership.
    You have lost me as a customer for the foreseable future!

    Sound issues while playing the BF4 Campaign! (XBOX ONE)

    The sound works while playing the campaign but I loose the voices/speech in the video scenes of the campaign, yet the background music remains.

    It’s a weird one, anyone know what’s wrong?

  122. Mark
    February 3rd, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    I own BF4 for PS4 and I have not had any crashing issues since the patch that came out around the time that the china rising dlc came out( over 100hrs play time). I finally thought that the game was fixed. I WAS WRONG. Since this last patch I’ve been getting the error code that kicks you off the game to the system menu. I’ve only had the sound problem once but sine I mentioned this I’m sure that it will happen all the time now lol. I’m hoping that this will be fixed before the second assault dlc comes because I want to play on some of the best BF3 maps.

  125. Matthew
    February 3rd, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    I am having the exact same problem, only time my sound is completely gone is on team deathmatch and squad deathmatch, although on the other game modes when I first spawn each time the vehicle sound is gone until I drive for about 30 seconds. The game has just started freezing up during every match and I have to turn my ps3 off and back on. It has gotten ridiculous, I literally just bough this game 2 days ago and I can’t even play it because of this madness. Dice really needs to fix this asap, we can’t return the game because it has already been opened. All walmart will do is give us another copy of the same game which is pointless. The people at dice reallyneed to get their heads out of their asses and put out another patch.This is not fair for the people that go out and spend their hard earned money on this garbage that doesnt even work. I am tempted next week when I go on my vacation from work to take a drive to their headquarters just so I can raise hell with these pricks and relieve some frustration..please fix this soon

  126. klara
    February 4th, 2014 at 12:36 am

    how can u even play its really frustrated because no sound means u cant hear the enemy no sounds mean u dont hear what ure party are saying and no sounds mean k/d is going below zero :s

    February 4th, 2014 at 12:39 am

    Im on xbox one and every patch they have put out makes the multiplayer increasingly worse!!! the campaign has never saved since the first patch so i have given up on that, but now in multiplayer I have 1. one hit deaths constantly 2. players with 0 health after a firefight killing me 3. no gun after spawn for almost a minute 4. no sound in tdm. if they keep increasing errors with every patch i wish they would at least give us the option to not download these patches until we know they are safe and bug free!!! this is my first bf game purchase and Im not impressed, ive never bought a product in my life that is this bad and not had the option to get my money back!!!!

    You should be ashamed of yourself dice for letting players pay a lot of money and still no patches to fix these bugs are bloody annoying I mean the sound issues and the freaking save lost data in the campaign I was near the ending and I had to start all over again because dice decided to not fix the famous battlefield 4 bugs keep it up dice!!!! ><

    This is the first version of Battlefield that I have purchased, having just picked up the Xbox One. I have played through the COD franchise, and not had a particular fondness for their online play. However, after playing through 50 hours of BF4 online, I became hooked.

    But now all I can say is: “WTF Dice/EA?????” The game worked flawlessly (for me, anyway) before the “patches” (that apparently have NOT been tested whatsoever). I had NO issues with the campaign, nor with the online multiplayer. After the patch, I went to replay the final mission to unlock the QBZ-95-1, having unlocked the M249 and P90, when I noticed that my campaign saves had been deleted. Frustrating, but the campaign was pretty good, and short, so I didn’t mind. I played through nearly to the end and figured I’d pick up where I’d left off the next day. WRONG!!! Campaign deleted once again! WTF. I guess I don’t need the QBZ anyway…

    Then, a few days ago, I began having issues with the sound in TDM. No big deal, I figured, I’ll just play Conquest until they fix it.

    So, yesterday after playing a few rounds of Conquest, I began getting a frozen, black loading screen, and eventually received the “You have lost connection to the EA servers” message. This has continued through today. Several times the game has crashed completely and kicked me out to the Xbox home screen, or has restarted completely.

    Needless to say, I’m f’n pissed. I’ve dumped $114.00 on this product, between the game, Premium and taxes, and now I can’t play online.

    All I ask is that I get to use the product I paid for.

    So, once again, EA/Dice: WTF!!! Fix the game!!!

    I’m having the same issue on xbox 360. All I play is team deathmatch. Nothing else. Whenever a consumer buys a product, we expect it to work from the get go. This game tho hadn’t. So what’s the issues, no sound only looped sounds of after game play. Weapons not showing up after re spawn for up to 20 seconds. 0 health kills. It’s like EA/DICE new thus was going to happen and just gave us a big middle finger. They better come up with a resolution to these updates that create more problems. B4 a bunch of us decide to take actions against them. Good luck to all. BOYCOTT

    Same issues as Joe with my PS3 on Deathmatch. No sound – only looped sounds. Weapons not showing up after respawn. 0 health kills. What the hell is a 0 health kill? I want to love this game, but so far I would rather play BF3. C’mon EA/Dice. Certainly you can do better than this.

    You people that make the games have lost it. This game BF4 is a great game but you fail to make it work and have so many patches to try to fix what should have never been wrong in the first place.

    People I think will have little time to rush to buy another game of this caliber. In stead will just wait for a true game to buy though word of mouth.

    The new patch is affecting the game a lot.. I’m angry because I can’t even play Off Line. Right after I press START the gamen menu is not loading… What is wrong with this patch? Im getting desperate..

    The game without sound is like driving a car without a steering wheel. Im playing on the 360 and the issue happens when I’m joining a new match. If I keep playing it is resolved, if I back out and find a new match I have to play at least one match without sound. Another problem I’m having is I’m unable to play capture the flag because I don’t have the correct dlc….but I’m a premium member so I should have it all right?

    Everything works fine on PS4 expect on Team Deathmatch and Squad Team Deathmatch on which I don’t get any sound well I do but not the sound I want its just the finishing music looping and perhaps the odd explosion.

    It happened once since update but then was ok when I went back but went back last night/this morning and its still the same problem

    This stupid game is getting on my last nerve, not only am i getting no sounds, I am still getting corrupted game saves & the game freezes in mid game, Dice dropped the ball on battlefield 4 in a major way, not sure if I will ever buy another battlefield game.

    February 5th, 2014 at 10:56 am

    My sound doesn’t work at the very start of a match but ends up working after a minute or two. My biggest issue since the last patch is during a multiplayermatch the game causes my entire system to freeze. It happens on multiple maps and with different character classes. It is really starting to make me not want to play the game again.

    I will never purchase another product that has either DICE or EA even remotely associated with it.

    This just wreaks of amateur behaviour.

    February 5th, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    This new patch is rubbish, I have sound issues as others do. Also the black loading screen and when I eventually do get to play I will lose connection to the server. It needs sorting I don’t want to go back to cod !!!!!!!

    I have ps3 version same sound problem as everyone else. Completely freezes playing Shanghai/obliteration EVERY TIME… now it says that I lost connection to the EA server. Can’t play at all… wow this game just keeps getting better. …. come on people just fix the game…

    Oh yeah. . And this stupid 0 health kill crap. How do you have 0 health and still run a way. .week week. I think dice should give everyone every dlc that is comming for free and refund all the premium player’s money. . Poor excuse for a game.. I mean did they even try the game at all before they released it.. I lay hardwood for a living. It would be like you paid me for a floor and I came in and layer it all in the floor and didn’t nail it. Oh but don’t worry I will come back and put some screws in it here and there to make you think I’m trying to make it right. .

    Yep. I have that damn sound loop bug on PC. Every Team Deathmatch game since 1/31 patch. VERY annoying. And I STILL get the loud repeating explosion sound bug too.

    The last patch did nothing for me. PC version still sucks balls.

    February 9th, 2014 at 2:25 pm

    EA sux a lot … as always. Always a lot of bugs on BF series … always a lot of patches … but still the best FPS ever !

    February 14th, 2014 at 12:50 am

    Seriously what the hell is going with TDM matches… There are literally only 4 servers *with* players and EVERY one of them has the sound cut out bug….

    I was getting really into the multiplayer but each day i get more and more frustrated with the limited servers with actual players on them and this stupid sound bug that is HORRENDOUS… I could understand maybe a missed sound here and there but EVERYTHING?
    F*&King S%^T

    Another thing that really bugs me is there are hundreds of servers with 0/64 players on it???!! Isn’t that just making other servers slower being up and pinging like that? Plus the sorting is an absolute joke, always feel like im scrolling through the boards to just find Conquest Operation Locker being played to death (which i do love btw) but its getting very stale.

    Hardly any rush and if any ping is too high, a few TDM all with bugs, 2 Dominations, Millions of Conquest & Large, SQ DM, A few Air Superiority (which is a bit kak tbh IMO) and Literally nothing else. Just hundereds of servers with nobody on them.

    PC Version.

    Might just get BF3 premium for god sake, maybe won’t be so crap.

    I love this game but these servers HAVE to get better!

    Since the 1.07 patch/update I continue to have freexing,lagging,1 hit kills by enemy, when levolution begins entire game lags to a crawl, I get disconnected from game on any map mind you I have fiber optics plug directly into my PS3, using M249 I unload 100 rounds into enemy chest no hit markers not kill but enemy kills me with 1 shot if I had hair I would have pulled them all out by now, EA should be sued in court for breach of player contract and false advertisement of a non verified partial working game and should repay all customers on all platforms there money back. Also enemy kills me while behind a building in cover and I have the recording to proof it.
    The campaign still does not work I played the whole campaign from beginning to end and it did not save my progress nor unlocks / finds every time I had to start from beginning. I went to get my money back at game stop but said I can exchange for another type of game no cash back. hello what kind of s@#$t is that. in my opinion they have lost a repeat customer I have 2 kids who also play and like the game and to see there frustration hurts me.

    On the xbox 1 it goes in and out with the sound when it does allow me to play a multiplayer match I have to wait almost 20 minutes jus to get in a match that starts off good then it starts lagging and on the map with the thunder storm on the island (not sure new to the game) it went completely black and white sound went out lag came along so I did everything to resolve the problem thinkn it was on my end even took the xbox back and got another one did the same thing went to warm up on the gun range or whatever got a head shot at 129 mm. And was kicked out of that please fix these problems cause not only me but as I cam see everyone else has the similar problem or more

    i just purchased the premium package and really nothing has worked right. On the single player level the mission Escape glitches so i can not complete it and move on. Also there is no sound except backround music on the new multi player levels. I bought Battlefield4 the day it came out spent 59.99 plus tax on it and then bought the premium package for 49.99 (i believe i paid). So for this game im in over 110 dollars and it doesnt really work at all. So either fix the problem or give me my money back? Credit everyone with a bit of money back because right now your basically stealing from your supporters.

    I bought this game try to play it with all its glitches, bugs and rests, now 2 month later they put assault patch into accion , so half the maps i cant play, and it has started to glitch morethan ever and in the middle of the games it takes me out of the server, and they want me to buy? Assault patch. Really think this is last battlefield i buy and probabley dice, te thing is i really used to like this game.

  168. Dan
    March 7th, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    Not sure if it’s been said, but the sound issue is related to the early 100 ticket bug for TDM. Now when ticket count hits 100, the game “ends” as far as sound, but the game continues to the actual final ticket count. I’ve heard reinstalling all of BF4 on PC will fix the issue, as recent patches might be calling old code that still has the ticket bug.

    I have had the sound problem to but my biggest problem is when i play on second assault after a game i will go into the loading screen to play on a different map but it wont load it will say its loading for hours then freeze up. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  172. Kim
    March 25th, 2014 at 10:36 am

    BF1942: OK
    BF2: Spend more time on fixing memory leak issues than I played the game due to constantly crashes.
    BF3: Worked perfectly, except some server issues in the first week or so.
    BF4: Just bought the game. No sound what so ever. Appears to have been an issue for users for several months. Is this going to be yet another BF2 experience?
    Do not know how it worked before the “patch” which caused all the problems, but if the game was working before this patch. Why have EA not done something to remove the latest “Patch”?

    What about (when I finally get on) on Op.Locker, whenever someone dies, the make a sound, as does the next, making the same sound. I play on PS3 at the moment and it sounds like Star Wars deaths
