Battlefield: Bad Company 2 getting Medal of Honor's hit detection in PC update

According to CVG, a new Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC update will feature "hit registration changes brought over from MOH," increasing the accuracy of the guns. We couldn't find an official statement on the update, but CVG says it's "due very soon."

Faulty hit detection has been one of the main complaints players have expressed about Bad Company 2. After the Medal of Honor multiplayer beta, DICE cited hit detection as one of its primary improvements to the engine. Based on my experiences, bullets do hit with more accuracy in MoH, so this alleged update is fantastic news for BC2 players (though note that it won't affect melee attacks).

According to CVG, the full list of fixes is as follows:

  • One of the Insignia's requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart - requirement removed.
  • One of the Insignia's requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart - requirement removed.
  • Hit registration changes brought over from MOH to BC2; several bugfixes, the client<->server send rates have been increased, some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns, but will not make much of a difference to the knife. Removed the blue box behind the chat window.
  • The 2-second immunity when spawning/being revived can will now be immediately remove either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). Merely looking around will not remove the invulnerability. In essence: If a person moves, he is never invulnerable.
  • 3D vision fixed.

For now, we're taking CVG's word on the update, but we have an inquiry out to EA for further information. We'll update you when we hear something. In the meantime, if you've found a blog or news post that we've missed, feel free to share in the comments!

    If this were to transfer to xbox live, would this mean I could finally get all the way behind a wall and not be killed after a 3 second delay after I've already been behind cover? At least the shooting system is better than the first Bad Company multiplayer. That was damn near impossible.

    I hope they add this one when you download Vietnam for the 360 and PS3 as well.

    Lame... After all this time of figuring out how to make every shot count, they change it? Bravo.

    will it be updated on ps3 as well?
  • SideOfBeef - October 26, 2010 10:32 p.m.

    I approve of all these changes. Now talk to Microsoft and put them on the 360 version. I'm tired of getting killed by invincible revive spammers while I'm dumping bullets into them.
