Battlefield 5's last major update was released a while back, however, that doesn’t mean that the developers at DICE won’t release small patches to fix some underlying bugs. The latest patch, Update 7.1, does exactly that.

The update is only 3.65GB in size on PC and is solely focused on bug fixing. It also added a couple of cosmetic items that were removed via Update Sprint. K31/43 Rifle accuracy issues have been fixed and the guns are not going to shoot an extra bullet when switching firing modes. The Welrod magazine size is now 6+1 and it acts as an open bolt. The incorrect icon in Welrod Master Dogtag is also fixed. The update fixed the Solder model bug as well, and the soldiers’ model will show up in the frontend as intended.

In the map Provence, the ammo box will not result in players getting stuck. Water on the map are not bulletproof anymore (just like real life). Vehicles from the US team in Twisted Metal – Front lines are also removed.

The complete update 7.1 patch notes are available below and on the official site.
