Battlefield 5 Update 6.0 patch notes released ahead of Thursday release date

Battlefield 5 is gearing up to release yet another big title update for the game later this week on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In just a few days time players will be able to experience Chapter 6 known as 'Into The Jungle'.

Though the update is more than just a new content, there's no denying that fans will be most impressed by the addition of the new Soloman Islands map.

"Deploy in this brand new Jungle environment that’s made by the original creators of Argonne Forest, and Operation Locker," explains Battlefield's Community Manager Adam Freeman.

"Solomon Islands features plenty of intense choke points and deep flanking routes, all seamlessly connected by a winding river that runs throughout the length of the map."

The new map isn't the only big addition though, with a massive arsenal of new weapons also joining the fray, including the Type 11 LMG, the Model 37 Shotgun, and the M2 Carbine.

"There’s also 2 new gadgets to play with – the M1A1 Bazooka and the long-awaited Lunge Mine," adds Freeman.

As seen in the new trailer underneath, there's also a new Elite players can unlock, Misaki Yamashiro, who is available for any players who reach rank 40.

Have a look at the new trailer below and keep reading for the full patch notes for update 6.0, as shared by EA earlier today

Weapons & Gadgets

  • Grease gun – We’ve made some subtle tweaks to the Suppressor audio to better separate it from the experience when firing the weapon unsuppressed.
  • AP Mine – Fixed an issue that was causing the AP mine to not do damage to infantry in Firestorm.

Weapon Balance

The following changes have been applied to the bolt action rifles muzzle velocity on the Recon class:

  • Ross Rifle: From 600 to 750
  • Type 99: From 600 to 750

We’ll be performing a more substantive pass on our Weapon Balance in our next update for Assault, Medic, and Support. Thank you for all of your feedback on this topic.

UI & Others

  • Spotted enemies are no longer represented as arrows on the minimap and do not show the direction (they’re now back to diamond shapes).
  • An option to modify the strength of snap zoom has been added for players on Console.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the “Vehicle Buster” combat role to not unlock for some players.
  • Fixed a bug that would show the Deploy screen visible on squad screen after leaving pre-round.
  • Fixed the incorrect wording in the Type 2A Mastery IV assignment.


  • Online server connectivity improvements that in some rare cases could drop a player from a server 30 seconds after joining it.
