BC2 back stabbing rewarded again

Bad Company 2 will get a new patch on PC next week. One of the bugs fixed is for those who like sneaking around …

Knifing people in the back works again

There are other tweaks too:

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.

‘Course it’s all for PCs, no sign of console patches any time soon. Here’s a Reddit post on the above tweaks.

Edit: I was wrong, consoles are getting patch on May 11th. The patch will include the changes above plus the changes in the previous patch so super fast tracers and nerfed M60s will be the order of the day on consoles soon too! Ug Banga Whack.

    1. I will, but my son is sick and needs an antibiotic at 9pm so might be a bit after that before I’m online. Only got a few more days to “exploit” shotguns with infinite aim and overpowered M60s. šŸ™‚

      Sorta looking forward to the fast tracer. It will totally change the air-warfare dynamic. I bet most pilots will run with smoke.

    1. Looks like it. The PC patch made it more powerful at long range didn’t it?

      I’m not too worried. I’ve gone off the M60 when using magnum ammo. I hate the iron sights on that gun and when I can’t use the red dot I’ll pick something else.
