DICE is updating Battlefield 4 with new weapons and a new mode called Gun Master on May 26th. Due to the nature of the update, multiplayer will be offline for various platforms starting at 1 AM PDT for PC. Xbox One and Xbox 360 servers will go down at 2 AM and 3 AM PDT respectively. Maintenance will conclude at 5 AM PDT with the PS4 and PS3 versions being updated last.
The new weapons include a burst-fire Assault Rifle, which has been highly demanded from fans; a Carbine with its bullpup shooting and vertical grip; the PDW with a silencer; a new sidearm which can be used for long-range sniping; and a new LMG which feels like a cross between a heavy machine gun and an assault rifle. The new mode Gun Master will function like team deathmatch but only offers new weapons with two consecutive kills.
