ive recently been gettting this wierd glitch. IT has always been around, but surfaces more on some servers. Some freindly soldiers will have a red name tag, while some enemy soldiers will have a blue tage. When I kill the enemy with the blue tag, it shows it as a teamkill, but it doesn't count as a tk in my stats. I have a few screeneies of the friendly enemy glitch. just wonderin if ne1 else gets this glitch aswell. :smokin::smokin:
I'm assuming these pics are from version 1.03 games? I was hoping that this bug would get fixed with the new patch. That said, I haven't seen it myself in a while.
happens all the time You shoot him you get a free kill :D
back before i figured this glitch out, i found out that if you shoot the guy that appears to be your enemy, then you usually get punished for teamkill and kicked and/or banned for something that isn't your fault.
Yeah, that has been pissin' me off. You shoot a red tag, and get kicked. It really sucks when you got a high score you want to keep.
Well I have seen it the odd few times a while back, but the other day (before the 1.03 patch) it was very annoying. A friend and I were playing (both in the same house) and we went to cap a flag with one of our other squad members (I thought). I was in an APC and he was in a buggy fixing me as we moved along. Our other squad mate was already in the flag radius and the moment I showed up he started shooting at me. I yelled at him over the mike to stop but he kept shooting.
When we figured to what was going on we had a good laugh. On MY computer we had a 3 man squad, two APC's and a buggy, on my friends computer we had a two man squad, locked! He was squad leader. So we had an enemy who manged to join a locked squad on my computer and showed up to me as a squad member but to our squad leader he was an enemy NOT in our two man squad.
haven't seen it since patch 1.03 so here's hoping it doesn't come up like that again.
Its still there, unfortunately. Try to learn your uniforms, & hope your teammates do the same...
The "Red Bug" should now be called the "Red and Blue Bug" :rolleyes:
I've always seen and been victim of the Red Bug, never seen the enemy as blue though
ive seen a different one aswell (b4 1.03) where a friendly usmc showed up in blue but had mec uniform. I kept killing him and getting tks and like wise 4 him, it was so wierd.
I have only gotten the bug once and i know the uniforms pretty well, so i only use the name tags when doing long range shooting.
