Just started a session. First match, domination, sat in lobby, looked at lobby leaderboard, nothing unusual in there.
Votes for Hijack, match starts. We cap the first flag and as we move towards the door immediatey in front of the flag an enemy starts shooting us from behind. How the hell did that happen? Is there a hack or glitch I've not heard of?
Just looking at it in theatre and trying to save a clip - taking forever to download though! To be honest I rarely use theatre, only when something odd like this happens. Not too sure what I'm doing! (any help appreciated). I have recorded a clip, But when I try to upload edited film it says "cannot perform upload operation when a game film download is in progress." Currently downloaded 26%. I'm guessing I have to wait for this to finish before I can upload? No idea how to get it on YouTube and then on here though!
Watching from this players perspective it is really odd. While the start countdown is going on, his marker in the HUD is in the sea, when the match starts he appears at the back of our spawn. He seems to realise pretty quickly and starts firing at us (well me actually). I cant tell if he did sething or if it is a glitch but there is a delay between match starting and him spawning - enough for us to take the five steps to the flag and cap it.
One thing at time:
1 actually the theater is disabled, seeing that the server is in defcon 3, the theater features are disabled for now, so that's the problem with the clip you're trying to make;
2 that thing happened during the countdown or exactly when the match started? It can be a teleport hack or maybe a glitch, depending how that player acted.
Theater is working for me, cip uploaded to elite. Just need to link elite to youtube, I think? If I can get the clip on here you will see the answer to your second question yourself!
It sounds like a glitch; he joined the match late & for whatever reason it spawned him behind you instead of with his team. No idea what would cause that other than someone put a decimal in the wrong place.
I think/hope you are right, I was obviously a bit taken aback when it happened, and the fact the guy doesn't hesitate to shoot makes me suspicious. But having watched a bit more of his gameplay in the match he doesn't do anything else that sticks out as odd.
Anyway, not holding my breath on getting the clip on here. Followed all the instructions, linked my YouTube account etc. Theater says the video is now available to watch in Elite TV and it isn't and nothing is appearing on my YouTube account! Perhaps it all just takes time to filter through.
Finally the system works!
It's only a short video, but the appearance of the red dot, together with the red hit markers on me the second he appears confrms what I said. Fingers crossed it was just a glitch spawning.
Don't know if that is hack, a glitch, or just another shining example of the piece of garbage that this game is.
It really makes no sense why an enemy would spawn behind you so early in a match and while you're still on that half of the map.
Again, my vote is for broken game.
