I recall an old thread about backblast. Is it possible with the BF2 Engine? It was impossible to fire a recoilless anti-tank RPG in an enclosed building without burning yourself from the heat of the backblast.

M202A1_blast.gif This is the radius of backblast for most anti-tank weapons.

Though I highly doubt it is possible for backblast to react directly with the environment such as an apartment wall, is it possible for the backblast to be an invisible wave of some sort that fires backwards, at the same time as you fire the warhead? And if the "wave" hits a wall near you, you could get injured due to a small damage radius effect?

Perhaps a a hint of gravity will keep it from going too far. It's kind of like a rocket that fires 2 ways, yet one way, you cannot see it, and it is slightly weaker.

I do not want to see backblast kill you instantly. That would be stupid, and sometime cheap if you fire backwards into a building that houses enemies. . It should at least pull your heath down a notch, or more. Perhaps if you are in a closet and fire an anti-tank round should it kill you.

If it's not possible to incorporate a realistic backblast effect, then so be it.

Here is an actual video of backblast injuries if you don't know what I'm talking about: MySpaceTV Videos: What are you doing down there by THE WAR CLAN

They had their own set of problems which were worse than backblast.... it also isn't recoilless.

Well, the PIAT isn't a standard Rocket Launcher like the Bazooka or Panzerschrek. It was more like a Giant Crossbow. It pretty much just drew back and smacked a Mortar shell.

backblast wouldnt be hard, tho im sure it wouldnt be all that fun. Backblast would consist of a second firearms position with a weaker Projectile than the first, that explodes on contact with a way, and has a very short radius, and range. The problem with that is, we are most likely going to hate it when Stalingrad and Berlin, and Kharkov are introduced, as we will be doing alot of our fighting from within the buildings. And people wont appreciate backblast.

Yeah, that is the issue. I believe the Panzer Faust had a less potent backblast, as opposed to the Panzershrek, and the M1 Bazooka.

They had their own set of problems which were worse than backblast.... it also isn't recoilless.

Most Anti-Tank rockets were semi-recoilless. The recoil was pretty minimal, but the recoilless rifle made it truly recoilless.

The biggest problem of the PIAT being that it was shit.

Not much more shit then the Bazooka... Nearly the same penetration capability and range, but no smoke to compromise the shooters position. Drawback would be the strange firing mechanism and the reloading problems that came with it.
