Battlefield 4 Windows PC patch fixes the "kill trading" bug, but then creates more problems while doing so.

"Kill trading" is when two players fire at each other at the same time and also die at the same time. Sometimes due to lag, one of the players should actually be downed before he has the chance to fire back. That latency issue was supposed to be fixed in today's update.

According to Battle Log, there were 15 other things that were supposed to be fixed as well including a game crash, graphical flickering, being stuck in a revive screen, and much more which can be seen here.

However, two of those problems-- graphical flickering and revive stalls-- are now more prevalent than ever, game developer DICE said in an announcement.

"Both of these have our attention, and we're investigating them," DICE posted.

DICE has created a list to track the top 22 problems, glitches and errors that in the game.

"We at DICE have a long tradition of supporting our games and our community well after the release of a title. While millions of players are enjoying Battlefield 4, we are aware that some players are experiencing issues with the game," the company posted on BattleLog.

"If you are one of them, this Battlefield 4 tracker will give you the latest updates in regards to some of the top issues we are going to fix and fan feedback we're implementing in the game. We always work with trackers for our games internally which enables us to track and fix bugs as quickly as possible. We've never made it external before, but this seems like a great way to keep you constantly updated on how we're progressing," they continued.

All of the tracked issues have one of three statuses next to it: fixed, in the process of being fixed, or being investigated.

Battlefield 4 was released on Oct. 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, the PS4 on Nov. 15, and the Xbox One on Nov. 22. Each of these versions have experienced there fair share of problems.
