Kills that shouldnt be kills

MisfitsPM 4 years ago • updated by 0p3N_HanD 2 years ago 6
During battles I will come up against railguns and ricochet and on my screen I am not getting hit by the enemy but im losing health against rico and getting tagged by rail. I am not suffering any lag issues at all. How can a rail kill me when I am fully hidden. The ricochet on my screen is not hitting me yet I am losing health. has this happened to anyone else. This has happened multiple times to me, I ignored it to begin with, but after testing the issue several times I am now very Frustrated. Any suggestions.

I have seen this happen, it is actually a ping issue. Your tank is actually being hit my those shots, but you don't see it.

The problems like these are mostly reported with Ricochet, Railgun, and Twins. The reason being is that the projectiles are easily seen as they shoot at you.

I am naturally inclined to believe the issue is due to some lag issue, or that perhaps it is a fault on your end simply by being a little confused by what you're seeing, but who am I to speak when I myself have not seen this first hand. Is there anyway you could record a video and post the link here?

I have the same problem with one added problem, when i dodge railgun in close quarters i get behind the tank and gun and it fires and i die although i am on the wrong side of the gun it is like it can fire backwards, and i dont have any fps or ping issues. 
That is fire delay, when the Railgun actually shot you when you were in his line of sight, but your PC lagged a bit, and the time it took for you to drive around him was the time it took for your PC to catch up.

This topic has been on my mind for a while. I am fairly new to the game so I guess I fall in the category of "noob" that the kidz like to call everyone. This is my first port. Critics and suggestions welcomed.


The Ping issue may have been the case 2 years ago but I do not believe that is the case now. I think there is a real issue with this. When I play a match I normally have FPS between 58 - 60 and Pings between 67 - 72. I see this issue with Rails mainly but not all Rails. I have not seen this issue with Ricochets. It seems that some Rails have beams that are the width of a tank. I too have been side to side with a Rail, the Rail's turret pointing either away form my tank and in a few cases in the opposite direction and the shot kills me. I have also been in a spin battle with a rail and seeing my turret pointing past the front of the opponents tank and my shot miss while the Rail makes the same shot and I either take damage or I die.


So what is the beam width of a Rail suppose to be? The width of the barrel? Twice the width of the barrel?


Also, is there a reason that rocket from a Striker that flies by me and does not hit my tank or anything around me deals me "Slash Damage?" I have been on open ground, nothing that the rocker could or did impact, the fly by dealt damage. I have been behind a wall or barrier and a fly by has dealt damage. Is this suppose to happen? Is this a "feature" of this weapon? I am aware that the Thunder and Magnum have Slash Damage capabilities I did not think the Striker had fly by Splash Damage.


I have also been damaged or killed by Isidas and Vulcans that can shoot through walls and barriers. This hasn't been the last 10 hit points left on my tank, this has been a half to two thirds of hit points left on my tank. I have seen the beams of the Isidas and the bullet trail of the Vulcans follow me through the wall as I run behind a building or barrier. I have also seen the Laser of a shaft follow my tank while I move back and forth behind the building. Are these cheats or AimBots or a feature of these weapons?


I have seen a request for video proof. I have also searched the forums for a recommendation for screen recording software. I could not find a clear consensuses on one to use that would not cause game play degradation. Admin, what do you guys recommend?


Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.
