Thanks to the Community Test Environment, DICE has released a new patch for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 today which drastically improves the "Netcode" among other things, with a patch for the Xbox One and PS4 expected to release next week. They've also included a list of patch notes which we have listed below.

High Frequency Network Update

HFN

A new feature, the High Frequency Network Update, allows players to increase their tic rate from the server, meaning it gives players the ability to update the client faster and thus reduce any lag in gameplay, making bullets, etc. much more accurate, resulting as DICE put it "a smoother, more 'correct' player experience'.

By default this feature is turned off, meaning players will have to manually go into the options menu and turn it on themselves. Since people typically have different bandwidth connection, the feature has three levels: LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH.
