Team Death Match is now under going testing on the Battlefield 4 CTE Community Map but that is not it, the CTE squad have added 2x Team Death Match areas, 2x Gunmaster areas, 1x Squad Death match and a load of game and netcode updates.
NEXT FOCUS GAME MODE : DEATH MATCH
Our third vote resulted in a Team Deathmatch win – and since we had a little more time, we implemented all the deathmatch modes: 2x Team Deathmatch, 2x Gun Master and 1x Squad Deatchmatch. We will run all these 20 player modes/layouts on the small CMP servers!

Summer Patch coherence
This release also includes a full integration of the Summer Patch – which means the changes you’d expect to see there should be in here. IE the Jets should be back to 313 “normal” setup again etc. Let us know if you find any inconsistencies!
