Someone had deployed the Lafette in the opening of a bunker, which resulted in

a) when you entered it, exiting wasn't possible anymore, only solution was to suicide. b) everyone in that bunker (at that time 3 people) got trapped inside.

In the screenshot (though not the best ;)) you can see the tripod of the Lafette and the legs of the trapped soldier

Haha, I did the same thing in the Sidi Muftah bunker on Gazala. At one point I could only turn the lafette to the left, really slow.

I was fun until we captured the flag. Then they ran off (both my friends and the lousy allies). Then it was just quiet.

/suicide

Heh, LOL. Nice teammates :lol:

I noticed just now, but that guy trapped in the bunker is a squadleader, so that's why there were more guys trapped inside that bunker :rofl:

You can do all sort of glitching with the Lafette. There was a guy once who put it up and it was accidently positioned elsewhere. The gun was sat up exactly on a wall. He entered it and could see through the wall and the barrel of the gun broke through the wall. He could shoot everything, but could not be shot at, as he was covered behind the wall. Finally he could not exit the Lafette again and had to suicide. I know this, because I talked to him, he was in my squad, and I advised him to suicide before an admin came along or anyone else could take a screenshot.

I deployed it the other day in the centre of a room... upon entering it I appeared to warp a metre or two away to become half inside the wall. I could turn and everything, but I couldn't exit. Had to suicide in the end :(

So yeah... the kit needs a warning on it to keep it away from buildings. If the panzerfaust had "Achtung! Feuerstrahl!" printed on it... I'm sure the FH team can come up with a similar concise warning ;)

I deployed a lafette in a shell crater once.. Just so that sights were above ground and I could shoot people.. However apparently the game thought that barrel was still below ground level and when firing all the bullets just hit the ground in front of me from my point of view BUT I still killed people who I saw through the sight.. Dunno what other people saw or did they got killed from invisible bullets from their point of view too though..

All I know is I scored 40+ kills with that thing on Sidi Rezegh mowing down brits running from the hangers to the regiment building.

That thing is lethal. In the right hands of cause. Good thing im right-handed. =p
