Today is the day of updates. Next in line, following Watch Dogs 2, Rainbow Six:Siege and Horizon:Zero Dawn, we have Battlefield 1’s test server patch.

The CTE comprises of test serves, that hold important information and features on the game and allows players to test them. Battlefield 1 has a dedicated CTE and DICE released the details of this patch in it.  Resupply changes, tweak on weapons and nerfs on planes are a few among the list of patch notes.

Here is the entire rundown of the Battlefiel 1’s patch notes.

Battlefield 1 CTE Patch Notes dated February 21

RESUPPLY CHANGES

As part of an ongoing effort to address excessive use of explosive gadgets and grenades, DICE has 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.

The resupply timers are as follows:

  • Frag: 36 seconds
  • Light AT: 36 seconds
  • Impact: 36 seconds
  • Incendiary: 36 seconds
  • Gas: 27 seconds
  • Mini: 24 seconds
  • Smoke: 18 seconds
  • Resupplies are 3 times as fast near ammo crates

Other changes:

  • Reduced Smoke, Gas and Mini Grenade ammo from 2 to 1
  • Ammo pouches currently no longer resupply grenades
