This is noticeable with projectiles from Mechs as well. They explode on contact with grass/bushes (TC_Marshes for instance), but they don't do that on the server side. Maybe we should report that properly as well.

A little off topic, but does this mechanic also apply to mPPC?

Always look at your range finder before firing, sometimes the collision checking on objects or geometry, encompasses negative space.

I have actually seen someone kill themselves in this manner while I was spectating.  The SRM spawned behind the BA and went through their head (did not explode) and they died from it.

Protip: fire BA SSRMs while in the air and it won't kill you. ;)

yeah, it still keeps happening.
had it happen several times, even though the missles flew off and hit the target, i still got killed my my own SRM.
furthermore: yes, this can and does happen with the mPPC too. i had that happen several times as well over the last few days.

No, with the mpPPC, it's a matter of trying to fire through water or across a borked hitbox. You can tell by looking at your rangefinder if you're looking at a hitbox; anytime you're near a slope it's a good idea to check the rangefinder to find the actual edges of the object.

Bloodycrow, yes it does still happen. Just not as often. I've probably already said this like 2 times in this topic. And even if it didn't happen, it's still a huge issue because being forced to use jump jets when you wouldn't otherwise need to is a serious problem.

Certainly. I didn't mean to discount the issue when I posted that a month ago. It was more of a response to the poster above. Though perhaps I shouldn't have said it with such finality. :P

Paradoxically, i can usually fire a laser (normal or heavy does not matter) just fine at the target.
cycling to SRM or PPC and firing without moving the crosshair then usually results in me going splat often <.<

Got fragged by this glitch twice today. I was smashing Clan faces in when suddenly I'm a pile of giblets on the ground.

Shit sucks bro.
