DICE has patched some issues up but we continue to hear about Battlefield 1 problems plaguing the game on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Its been several months since the release of Battlefield 1. During that time, DICE has rolled out several key Battlefield 1 updates. These updates have delivered new features, tweaks, and a ton of fixes for lingering issues.
While these updates have patched up numerous issues with the game, Battlefield 1 problems are still a headache for many gamers.
This roundup looks at these Battlefield 1 problems and shows you where to find potential fixes. It also shows you how to report bugs to the developer so that EA DICE can tackle your problem in a future Battlefield 1 update for Xbox One, PS4 and/or PC.
Battlefield 1 Problems (2017)
As we push into 2017 we continue to hear about problems with Battlefield 1.
Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC users are complaining about crashes, issues starting the game, problems installing Battlefield 1 on the PC and Xbox One, a white screen problem, a black screen problem, issues getting into vehicles, cheaters with aimbots, FPS issues, various problems with Battlepacks, and controller and joystick issues.
We’re also hearing about DirectX issues, aiming bugs, problems with the Dreadnought and other behemoth classes, issues with Kill/Death ratios, and occasional lag in the game menus (we’ve seen this issue with the Xbox One version of the game).
The company’s forums continue to fill up with complaints and we expect the list to grow as the company releases its next big Battlefield 1 update and its They Shall Not Pass DLC.
The They Shall Not Pass DLC will likely go through a beta before it arrives in March but we expect it to be riddled with issues when it arrives later this year.
How to Report Battlefield 1 Problems
If you run into an issue with Battlefield 1 on the Xbox One, PS4 or PC you’ll want to report your problem to EA DICE so it can fix the problem in a future update. There are a few ways to do that.
If you use social media, you can get in contact with the official Battlefield account. Report your bug to the official Battlefield Twitter account and there’s a chance the good people operating it will relay your issue to the game’s engineers. You might also contact EA’s official support account.
You can also report your issues on the official Battlefield 1 forums. There are currently two official forums setup for troubleshooting and bug reports. One is on the official Battlefield website, the other is on EA’s Battlefield 1 website.
EA DICE is also responding to complaints on the official Battlefield Reddit.
