Visceral looks like it will be lowering down the game’s drivable couch stats with the first patch. The intended Easter egg apparently proved to be too popular and too effective as an actual vehicle rather than the joke it was intended to be. Battlefield Hardline’s patch now state that Visceral will lower the couch’s stats by drastically lowering its health and repair rate.
“Couch health reduced and repair rate decreased to a miniscule amount, making the Couch the one-off it was intended,” the developer wrote.
The exact date of when the patch will roll out is not yet known, but Visceral said that the new stats will take effect in the “near future”. The full patch notes can be found over at Battlefield’s forum.
