[listed] (bounce weapons) Ion Cannon and Flare resets door

Post by NUMBERZero » 07 Nov 2015, 01:37

When you shoot the little part of the door that can still be seen with the Ion Cannon or the flares, the door spontaneously plays its opening animation again. This does trigger a full reset of the door so that the player has to wait in order to go through. The commonality between these two projectiles is that they bounce off of the door when it is shot. No other projectile causes this issue.

It would be funny if someone were accurate enough to close a door on someone just as they were about to pass through and thwart their escape attempt :P

I couldn't recreate this. Perhaps it's just this one door? I was in Vertigo at the time.

Upon further review, it only happens on the doors that have just enough of those tabs sticking out. Have it sink down about half way further and it looks like you're unable to have the same effect.

Ok, I've just tried this on my own Hosted game and it IS an issue. All red/blue doors. No servers listed for me to join at the moment to try it.
We're going to need a bigger boat.

I cannot recreate this on an external (Dedicated) server, If I Host...yes.
