A server update for Battlefield 4 has addressed the not-so-long-ago discovered 'Death Shield' bug which could stop bullets, grenades and other projectiles from crossing over a fallen soldier awaiting revival.
This fix comes as DICE launch their Rent-A-Server program for consoles, which has already suffered fault for Xbox One and have "temporarily removed the feature". You may now eye-roll.
"We’d also like to inform you that with today’s server update, we are deploying a fix for the issue being referred to as “Death Shield,” where an invisible “shield” would appear around killed enemies, blocking weapons fire. Thank you for being patient as we worked to get this resolved," d DICE.
The Rent-A-Server program is designed to let gamers have control over different options for private and public servers, and tweak things such as player count and map rotation. "Thanks to these customization options, you’ll be able to create games that suit the play style for you and your friends." Naturally such a thing isn't free.

Currently the program is in soft launch meaning they'll be adding more servers gradually.
