New video shows the incredible problems with the Battlefield 4 netcode

Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse...

We’ve been throwing around the term “netcode” for Battlefield 4 for a while, which is used as a blanket term to describe what’s going on behind the scenes of a multiplayer game. And the Battlefield 4 netode has been heavily criticized ever since the game was released, with countless videos showing just how awful and incredibly frustrating it is to play this game some times.

DICE recently upgraded their server hardware and released another server patch, but that hasn’t done much to improve the stability and netcode of the game. In fact, the problems with Battlefield 4 netcode and lag are still out there, as evidenced by the video above.

The video speaks for itself, and shows just what happens on a regular basis now in Battlefield 4. This is exactly the kind of situation that just makes a player quit the game, uninstall, and never get back again.

We’re sure DICE is working hard to fix these problems, but it’s been six months since the game was released. It’s been dozens of patches. Will this game ever be fixed?

    Battlefield 5 confirmed for E3 2014!!!

    Developer DICE is “not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4,”

    an EA representative told IGN.

    OH MY GOSH! Can we cry anymore about this?! I mean really if it bothers you just dont play it. You get what you look for and if all you look for is the “bad things” about anything you are sure to find it.

      Purpose of this site is to inform us about the Battlefield 4 and since the game is totally broken than it is natural they write about it. If you do not like it, do not visit this site and go cry somewhere else.

      OH MY GOSH! Can we cry anymore about the comments and articles?! I mean really if comments and articles bother you just dont read them. You get what you look for and if all you look for is the “bad things” about anything you are sure to find it.

    Well, unlike with battlefield 2142, they are actually saying that they are aware of issues and working on it.

    With BF2142, you had to report problems to people at EA that cannot read. If you want to develop a stress disorder, try working with EA support.

    I dont bother contacting EA support – I’d rather jump off a bridge.

    hmmm, some more thoughts about EA support. It may be more helpful to talk to a dog about your gaming problems, because a potential solution may come to mind in the process randomly… That cannot happen with EA support cause they will just make you angry, preventing any creativity and make you focus on why they employ retards.

    Makes me wonder how many more kills I would have had if the netcode wasnt broken the last 6 months…

      Probably none. Your opponents have netcode problems as well.
