Advanced Warfare Patch 4

Advanced Warfare Patch 4

Yesterday another patch was released for Advanced Warfare – another pretty big patch coming in around 1.6GB that seems to do a little more bug fixing and balancing of some weapons. Right now on the official Call of Duty Community forums there are reports that the SAC3 sound bug still isn’t fixed even though this patch was supposed to address that. It also looks like the EM1 directed energy assault rifle was also not nerfed with this update and performance issues on some maps like Defender still remain.
