Guys ,I think this needs its own thread.
I know there was a discussion regarding the same issue on AC4,but tons worse than this below.
So post here if you experienced it and on which map/mode so we can kinda track if its a BF4 software glitch or something worse.

I have around 50 hours on BF4/PS4 and never seen it ingame,only on the spawn map only on the these 3 maps: Zavod311,Shanghai and Floodzone ,exactly the same place ,exactly the same size . Some are saying its GPU issue ,but how come only on the spawn screen,it does not make any sense .



So what do you think?

I thought it was intentional.

My experience is the same thing, only on spawn map. I wouldn't be concerned about it being an GPU issue.

I have had this exact issue rarely during Conquest.
I don't believe this is a GPU error as it has not happened to me during gameplay.

Pretty sure it's a software bug.

I've also had this issue a few times. Figured it was one of the billion bugs in this game. Most recent one I get is the one where a squad mate will be invisible. Just his name tag will float along the ground.

I get this, although I haven't really payed attention to what maps it happens on. I think it's safe to say it's a problem with Battlefield, not the PS4.

It does look like the AC4 glitch. Guess we'll have to leave this one for tech-savvy GAF.

I don't know if ot but I noticed on AC4 various strange graphic glitchs, one of them, a sort of 'ghost' of the buffer, I can't explain better. I suspect it has to do to the new custom AA of Ubi because Killzone not give me this artifact. Another thing, when I use the 'panoramic view' on the boat, waves seems suffer a sort of shimmering, probably it's the worst glitch, remind me to the ps2 time.

It's almost as if this game hasn't been properly tested before release or something.

Odd, the blurry squares are supposed to be transparent not white to give the impression of a satellite connection getting interference.

Game is pretty glitchy. If you press x before you get to the spawn map above the screen stays black and you can't see anything. Also if it can't connect to EA's servers the main title screen won't even load up and you can't even play the game unless you exit and disconnect from psn.

It's the game, not the GPU. With all the problems with the game at launch it's obviously the game.

This. If it was GPU issue, it would appear in other areas of the game. That screen does make it look like it could be a GPU issue, but if your seeing it elsewhere then it most likely would be.

This game has more bugs than any game I have seen, even ones where I did beta's. Still a fun game, but all these issues takes a lot away from the game.

Haven't had this white block issue [let alone any wierd graphical glitch outside the usual crash to OS bug) with AC4 and have been putting many hours into the PS4 version (both single player and wolfpack multiplayer).

Glad I didn't spend my cash on BF4. Whew! :)

Yup had it on the same maps you listed, OP.

My friend has also had it as well.

We've put it down to the game.

Everytime I see those I never really though they were a glitch. Just assumed it was a commander doing something...

I'm pretty sure that this is related to commander mode too. Is it showing an EMP? Anyone on a different platform see the same thing?

I have seen it a few times in BF4 but always thought it was intentional like someone using commander mode or something but if it is happening in AC4 too then that's weird, anyone have a screenshot of it happening in AC4? I have sunk a few hours into AC4 and now that it's been brought up I remember seeing something similar in it but just figured it was to do with the Animus but can't remember if it was exactly the same effect.

I've seen this on the spawn map whilst playing domination. I thought it was intentional as it only happens as I'm deploying

Reading the comments I guess its a bug and nothing to do with the hardware.Strange "dickhead" bug nevertheless.

This happens to me too, I got a little worried that it was my PS4 after seeing the graphical glitches in AC4 too, but I guess it's just the game.

I've seen it And it's obviously a intentional effect to mimic interference.

There is no smoke on the knoll guys...

Definitely not a hardware issue at all. Silly that people would even think so. Its a software bug or an intentional mark on the map.
