Well hi all, I writing to tell everyone a bout a bug on Omaha Charlie Sector.
There is a circle of sandbags between the two bunkers, and there's an MG34 mounted on it. It fires like a normal machine gun until you must reload your ammo. Then even though you cannot see the shots or muzzle flashes, if you hold down fire and move it over an enemy soldier he dies. And if you use this bug it is even more effective than normal.
Strangly, I have only seen one other person do it-and this may not have been the bug. I was running toward the west bunker and nobody shot me, I didn't see the MG34 flash, but it killed me: someguycantremembername[MG34][12.SS]Sch.Lassen PzJ ^
Like I said nobody seems to have discovered this bug.
Weird, I remember from my observations that alot of static mashine guns have hte firing animations being displayed while holding fire button though you're out of ammo. But I rmember it was even in vanilla 42. Btw, now I imagine alot of people will check this out in game, I hope it won't work.
Well the Mg nest on the far east of the map, the one at see level, behind the birbe wire, when ur axis and get on it, you can't be see; when your allie and pass through the east side, you see the mg flash and all that but you don't see any head so you can't get through easily. i guess it's another bug, i dunno; but normaly when there's a guy on an mg, you can see his head and thus, get him whith a head shot.
It might not be a bug since this would be just impossible. It might be something with mg positioning so player's position is not revealing head since his body is not moving. This is the way it is done in 42, you seee it in 1st person but your model is in different position, in this case possibly lower than mg.
yep i think the player's position is lower... that would explain everything! kinda sux though !
Yes, but we would need animations for player moving with mg and I think that there is nothing like prepared "space" for this in game code. I think that it happens most of the times if mg is positioned higher than you and it's gunner will lower it to fire at you, you will only see the gun's barrel while the guys head will be behind mg's butt end rather than sights.
Thanks for bringing attention to this bug. I shall now never play OCS againg haha. thats a weird bug tho, i've never seen it happen on any other gun.
Lol, just don't go through the east side ....
You mean west. The MG34 only faces from directly forward to the entrance of the WEST bunker. So just go through the east.
