Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC Patch Brings Balance and Tuning Changes

DICE has released a new patch for the PC version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which is now available. There are a few ways to grab the patch and it will depend on which version of the game you run.


  • Steam Users - You should have been automatically patched.
  • Non-Steam Users - The game's updater should prompt you to update OR you can download the patch manually.

Some of the major changes are:

  • Improved Hit registration made through several fixes and some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns.
  • The 2 second immunity when spawning/being revived will now be immediately removed either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). A Spawning Player can still orient passively in the Game World.
  • Reduced all weapon damage to the MCOM by 50%.
The full patch notes can be viewed at the official Battlefield: Bad Company 2 blog. How do you feel about the patch? Did they nerf anything you relied on to win? Let us know in the comments.
