Full Update Notes on the Battlefield 1 Update Page

Below you’ll find some of the highlights from the update’s improvements. Thanks for your feedback – we are constantly improving Battlefield 1 thanks to it.

Party Leader Feature

Every party will now have a party leader, usually the party creator, identified by a star. The party leader is in charge of joining a multiplayer game for the party. All other party members will be notified when the party leader has found a game. A normal party member can still join a multiplayer session but other party members will not get notified for it.

Grenade Changes

As part of an ongoing effort to address excessive use of explosive gadgets and grenades, we changed the way grenades resupply for this release. The goal for these changes is to reduce the amount of grenades available while getting constantly resupplied, as it is common in choke points, without making resupplies unnecessarily long in other gameplay. Similar to some gadgets, all grenades slowly resupply when out of ammo. This resupply is greatly sped up when near an ammo crate.

User Interface

Emblem Reporting: In addition to the End of Round scoreboard, reporting emblems is now possible to do from the in-game scoreboard as well.

Notifications: The previous mid screen popup notification system has been replaced with a new notification system showing notifications in the upper left corner of the screen instead. This improvement has also solved a number of popup related issues. 

New melee weapons in Puzzles screen: There are now three new melee weapons to complete with puzzle pieces gained in Battlepacks.

There are many more improvements made to improve your time with Battlefield 1. As mentioned, check out the Update Page for full details.
