    Coming Tuesday, May 11th an update introducing multiple balance adjustments will go live for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Battlefield Bad Company 2. Included in this update are all the changes previously found in the Ch Ch Changes Blog Post as well as some additional tweaking and tuning based on feedback from our ever vocal PC community. You can find the list of the most recent changes below, and the full list of previous changes in the Ch Ch Changes Blog Post. Don't worry PC players, these new updates will soon be making their way to you in the very near future.



    Slightly increased the damage of the UZI at long range.
    The AKs74u now has more felt recoil when aiming.
    The G3, VSS, and all SemiAutomatic rifles now settle slightly faster between shots when aiming.
    The PKM, Type 88LMG, G3, An94, and 40mm shotgun have returned to their former glory.
    Increased the damage of the MG3 to bring it in line with the rest of the LMGs.
    Fixed a bug where the Saiga12 with slugs would do too much damage at long range.
    Fixed a bug where the SVU would do too little damage at long range.
    Fixed a bug where M95 rounds would not kill armored targets with headshots.
    The list below is the Ch ch ch Changes blog post for changes made on the PC previously that will now occur on the consoles along with the above list.

    Ch ch ch Changes!

    As requested by the community, here is the exhaustive all inclusive changelist of all balance updates made in the R10 Server update for PC.

    Increased the base range of all Automatic and Semiautomatic weapons for more consistent close range combat.
    Slightly increased the damage of Semiautomatic rifles over long range for more consistent damage output.

    Increased the zoomed burst accuracy of LMGs and decreased LMG accuracy when moving to reduce LMG run and gun.
    Decreased the base damage of the M60 and XM8 LMGs to bring them in line with the other LMG damage values.
    Decreased the damage of the PKM over long range to balance it with other LMGs.
    Increased the base damage of the Type88 LMG to balance it with other LMGs.

    Slightly reduced the base damage of the M16 and G3 to balance the increased range.
    Slightly increased the damage of the AEK971, F2000, AN94, and AUG over long range to balance them with other Assault Rifles.

    Reduced the lethal blast range of the 40mm grenade and M2CG to highlight their role as a secondary weapon against infantry.
    Slightly Reduced the max range of the 40mm shotgun to balance it with other shotguns.
    Slightly increased the base damage of shotgun rounds and reduced their range to clarify ideal shotgun combat distance.

    Reduced the base damage of the PP2000 to balance the increased range.
    Increased the damage of the 9A91 over long range to balance its lower magazine size.

    Increased the damage and range of the M9, M93 pistols to make them more desirable as a secondary weapon.
    Increased the range of the MP443 pistol to make it more desirable as a secondary weapon.
    Increased the damage of the MP412 over long range to balance its low rate of fire.
    Slightly reduced the rate of fire of the M1911 pistol to balance it with other pistols.

    Increased the repair and overheat speeds of the Power Tool. Now overheats sooner but repairs the same amount before overheating.
    Increased the maximum number of Motion Sensors that can be carried from 2 to 3 and increased the speed which new sensors are acquired from ammo boxes.
    Significantly increased the speed of the Tracer Dart projectile to make it more effective against airborne targets.
    Increased the reload time of the Mortar Strike and reduced the damage it does to heavily armored vehicles.
    Decreased the range of Bolt Action Sniper and Pump Shotgun Slug rounds when using Magnum Ammo for better Kit Balance, especially in Hardcore.
    Slightly increased the Health of soldiers in Hardcore for better Kit Balance.

    Increased the benefit from the Medkit Heal+ specialization to make it more desirable as a Specialization.
    Decreased the benefit from Vehicle Reload Speed to balance it against other Vehicle Specializations.
    Slightly decreased the benefit from accuracy specializations to balance the changes to range and accuracy tweaks.


    Fixed a bug where the BMD3 would take extra damage to the front armor.
    Reduced the explosive damage from Attack Helicopter cannons.
    Increased the damage of AA guns against all targets. The AA gun should be much more effective against infantry on Port Valdez.

    These changes will eventually make their way to the 360 and PS3 as we work with our partners Microsoft and Sony to continue to support BFBC2 on all platforms.

    You know I don't really mind when there is a specific change for the better... but seriously we have all found our ways to deal with these specific things, right or wrong making these kinds of sweeping changes is kinda weak.

    I'm just hope'n that after the patch, the actualities of the changes really don't amount a severe change in the way the game feels and plays.

    fingers crossed :?

    Why are you complaining about these people that as you say cried so much that Dice made it easier for your baby sister to play BFBC2. From what you boast all the time about how good you are at BFBC2 compared to others, you should be even better now that it's easier right? :o :shock: :?

    You God Damn Right Cajun.............I dont go around Boasting, but anyone who has played with me knows I am good at FPS and 3rd Person Shooters as well as Racing Sims.. Now any other games, like plat-formers, Sports, Fighting, etc..................I suck....I admit it..........Everyone on here can probably beat me in Madden, UFC, StreetFighters and games like that. I am not Saying I am The Best in the clan at FPS or any shooters I am simply saying, I know what games I excel at and FPS is one of those types. I will not apologize for that, not at all, I take Pride in my pwning peeps with headshots and what not. I know many of you take pride in your skillz at the game as well. Hell I love playing with Float, he is funny..

    Gratz on the patch Sav. LOL time to change your game plan, and Rookie, everyone knows I'm the best, with the occasional Float beating me by at most 100 points, cause of repairing or medic crap. I just got a bad K/D Ratio cause I mess around a lot when I'm not playin with anyone of importance (ie clan members), and just go around trying to run people over, and bow up buildings. But if you want, I can raise my K/D ratio. but it'll take some time. I think I got over 1k deaths over my kills. So like... 5 games. LOL

    I will be the 1st to admit that I suck at these shooting games but, get me on a racing game and I kick ass. I have always been a racing game player until I joined USMG. I think I sometimes try to be too tactical. I am better than I use to be. The deal I have with BBC2 is all the colors above teammates and enemies are hard for me to pick up. So, Hardcore isn't good for me at all...

    Don't worry it's not just you Vet a lot of people are having issues with those colors, especially colorblind people for some reason. I've read a lot of post in EA's forums since the beta for this game from colorblind people having a hard time with the new nametag color scheme.
