I know someone is going to say i've been drinking, but I actually saw a German bot firing a mortar tube without ending yesterday. It was on the El Alamein map and this Jerry jumped on a mortar piece on the small eastern hill after much of the Allied fighting force had crammed on it. The Jerry was unnoticed... if anyone remembers where the mortar tube is, you might understand why. I was a Brit and for some reason, our guys had the Union Jack up, but the mini map still showed the base as 'Jerries-only' and the jerries kept spawning all over our asses. Our commander knew no better and kept the guys on the spot. So this Jerry was firing slightly east of the British garrison base, not hitting anyone but firing relentlessly. You might do the math and realize he was in deed firing out of his own view. I actually got killed by one those spawning Jerries and appeared at thr garrison just to make sure the shells were actually landing and they were... So bots CAN fire, maybe prematurely, but they can... And mortars, continually - I think this is good news for us bot fans ei? While on the subject, I got to see a mortar tube being fired in 3rd person for the 1st time and I didn't like the smoke effect too much. Shouldn't the smoke shoot up a few feets into the sky or summin more interesting especially since the unit on the piece doesn't have any animation?

What a sneaky little fellow :lol:. I can say this is good news but also confusing. Gotta figure out what made him shoot that was different from any other time.

Actually, the Brit bots (And I suspect the Jerries) also do it in Mersa Matru. I'm not sure which mortar although i suspect its the one near where the Chevy is (Close to the tower). All I know is (Although in Alamein I saW it being fired), in Mersa Matru, I could hear thre subtle 'Whiii' and HE explosion which you wont get in SP unless through an all-out arty barrage or an 88. Besides, I know the whizzing sound - That was mortar... Sure looking foward to hearing em from arty guns and morart tubes...Ooh, ooh and Nebelwerfers in the West European theater?... that'll be lovely.. ps. I don't think either bot hit anything or anyone with the fire, but it sure was fired in anger Also, the call-in artillery for the Germans lands only a few piece away from the Northern base no matter where you call it on... Ya, even when a base is recapped by the Brits and the jerries can call artillery there, the arty barrage lands at the same spot (South West of the Northern base) Although, I suspect that that eint a bot issue....

Bots used mortars in 0.7 after biz the wiz tweaked 'em; so I expect the FH2 bots to be manning batteries of 'werfers any day now. ;)

They fired morar once when they got real angry and nothing more... But they did so purposefully and I saw kills from it in 0.7... But here, in Fh2, they can fire rapidly with no proper target.... I think the one in alamein was firing at the Tommy frontline base but had been skewed to aim a bit too right at any given tine... But the meer fact thay fire it continually, says sometihng about them... And what would happen if they could aim right... Arty and Howitzers would be a force to recon with

Bots in fh1 using arty was/is a scary thing and if we can get it worked out in fh2 it will be great. They kinda cheat because they don't need a spot and can hit a target across the map with ease but I think that makes up for some of the other stuff they can't do.

If the German bots ever man the 88s in 0.7 Foy, prepare for casualties, particularly yourself....particularly particularly if you are in a vehicle. They have spotters with a real "all-seeing eye" and gunners who know their assigned fire areas and then pixel shoot like crazy. ;)
