NOVEMBER 23 PART 1
Next Battlefield 5 Patch Will Focus on Machine Gunners
A new patch is coming to Battlefield 5 and it will now allow the top machine gunners of tanks to duck. They usually die a lot since they have a huge gun under their control while they are located on top of a large tank that gets up close and personal with other tanks. This position makes you a sitting duck at times that just begs to be shot at. However, with the new patch, players will now be able to duck and avoid any fatal hits. Battlefield 5 is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
