Battlefield 1 May Update Now Live

The first of the monthly Battlefield 1 updates brings changes to bayonet charges, operations matchmaking and more.

The May Update for Battlefield 1 has hit live servers. Being the first of what DICE claim will be monthly updates, it has brought some changes with it. Operations matchmaking has been tweaked so that getting assigned to an empty server becomes less likely. Furthermore, at the end of an Operation players will no longer be sent back to the global screen. Instead, they will be moved to the opposite side in the same Operation. A "Join Any Operation" button is also available. The ticket count for Domination modes has been increased to 200, while the health gained on vehicle repair, alongside the time it takes for a repair cycle to complete, have been reduced.

The Dogfighter kit has received Incendiary Ammo as a secondary weapon, making it more effective at crippling plane parts. Bayonet charging now comes with slightly reduced turning speed, while the damage reduction that used to be applied to charging players is not completely removed. A number of other changes concerning less used plane and vehicle packages are also part of the update. You can have a look at the May Update full notes for all the details and the fancy numbers. I am a bit curious how the damage reduction removal will impact the bayonet charging's effectiveness. I know for a fact that some silly situations where you could charge through half a magazine being shot at you were happening before.

Have a look at what Adam had to say about the game in his Battlefield 1 Review.
