Hello, I was wondering if this is a bug. If you are on Axis, you can shoot 25 MM, Flak 38, or Verling into a Sandbag and it does nothing to you. However, if you are maning an Allied Bofors you kill yourself. Is this a bug in Forgotten Hope? Or the way it's meant to be? If this is the way it's intended to be I just wonder why. It's been this way a while now and if it is a bug I also wonder just how hard it would be to fix this? Regards, One Tin Soldier

It's pretty much always been that way, due to the relatively massive splash of the Bofors shells. Despite many calls to get rid of the sandbags or do something else to mitigate the ill effects of the burst, it seems that that's the way it's always going to be.

Its far from a bug, the Bofors is an exploding round set to detonate in mid air/or on impact. The 25mm German Flak was more like big ass bullet. If it hits an object it tears through rather than exploding on impact. ;)

The problem is, it hits the sandbags even when the crosshair is well above them in many cases. Its very unpredictable.

Allright, thanks for the info guys. :) I thought maybe it was a bug. I learned where to aim to keep from killing myself some time ago, but I didn't know if the Bofors were bugged or not. Cheers, One Tin Soldier

Wrong, it would burst. Only just in Vanilla BF AA guns splash damage doesn't harm soldiers ;)

Even EA couldnt be as stupid as making AA fire explosions not kill people..... could they?
