If the devs intended the AT weapon to have perfect accuracy in no-time then they would have coded it this way.

The fact that engineer is currently overpowered with its detpacks have nothing to do with this issue, this is about a glitch, not game balance.

For some "stupid" reason I believe in a fair game, this is why I make sure to even teams, and this is why I'm not gonna use this glitch. You guys have a piss-poor attitude. If this glitch is ok to use then so is every other glitch, like hiding inside objects where you can't be killed but you can still shoot out of it.

This is kinda off topic about the AT/Pistol glitch but still relevant to glitching (I think) but is abusing the No4's (and Arisaka to a lesser extent) crappy loading animation (the one where you continuously click and it fires at the rate of a K98) considered glitching or is it allowed?

Yeah the No.4 is apperantly supposed to fire that fast. It fired fast in real life too, the fastest bolt action in WW2 by any standard.

In response to Oxide...

The devs intended it to be realistic, but the players need it to be useful. So they reached a compromise. The devs code it so it closes ridiculously slow, and the players find a way around it or just take enginieers. I don't think anyone wants it accurate instantly on demand, but the alternative is waiting too long and being generally vulnerable and innefective at your role. Hiding in rocks is not even close to this exploit. I wouldn't even call the accuracy glitch an exploit, its a "temporary fix". Waiting for an FH patch to fix something is like breaking down on the highway and waiting until you win the lottery so you can afford a tow. Using the "glitch" is like borrowing your friend's car. Its not perfect, and it does have disadvantages, but it gets the job done until you finally strike gold and win the lottery, and then fix your car.

Using this glitch is no worse then bunny-hopping or nade spamming IMO.

I bet you're still going to be using it even with the new aiming times in the new version.

Because you know....since you already know about it and all. Instant accuracy is always better than 2-3 seconds right?

The Evil PumpkinWe realize that as an AT class the pistol is your only real defense against another infantry, so its expected to run around with a pistol instead of your bazooka or piat. However, if it is made obvious that the only reason you're running around with a pistol is to get instant accuracy with the AT weapon, then there's a problem. However when someone does the knife/mg glitch its not only very obvious, but in my eyes is much worse than doing the pistol/at glitch.

How can somebody's motivation ever be obvious to somebody on an internet game server? What are you, psychic? Perhaps just schizophrenic... As for glitching on the whole, well I am pretty shocked this thread stayed open. I have seen other people mention this particular trick before and have threads closed or posts editted by moderators. I guess it's kind of late though, now that every tom dick and harry knows how to do it, and will probably continue on even in the next patch.
