Frigate Friendly Firing

Recommended Posts

The other night myself and squadron wingman were flying on the 504 server.

We were heading across the bay pass a frigate to our 5oclock, when suddenly my wingman reports hes been fired on from his rear,then I see tracers fly past my canopy.

 

We went defensive and I checked six, thinking a bandit was on our six trying to gun us down. But it was a friendly frigate that was firing upon us.

 

Why he was firing at us we had no idea, and I'm pretty sure it was another captains frigate further out that had a lovely daughter my wingman met once, so a motive was out of the question.

:P

 

Any once else encountered friendly fire from ships yet at low alt.?

 

P.S We were flying Hogs.

Must of been friendly.

Because we turned to get even and bombed it to smitherens, and received -2000 points for our efforts.

Well, friendly fire does happen a lot in reality, doesn't it ;)

Maybe it's LockON's unintentional feature :)

This has been a bug for a while now. I thought it was well known.

Before 1.1 it was all sams, since then it is ships occasionally. I have had it on Jabogs' server a long while ago, as well as 504....it is quite alarming to lift off the Kuz and then be nailed by its escort!

If you die and respawn it will go away, and someone told me once that

asking for takeoff clearance stops it....but of course the bug is so intermittent that you can never test it well.

Hmm have to test it again and see the results.

Cant remember if we had ECM on, which could have signaled us as a threat.

Cant count on it though.

Will report further with a track if I see the mission up again.

han, there has been several friendly fire bug reports. and i can confirm 1 from last night .

 

it is mostly due to the way clients enter the server online.

 

example the previous client client 6, leaves from blue goes to sleep, a new player comes in and he gets client 6 slot, but joins red. this is where the bug happens.

 

this is also why it happens to only some people seemingly at random.
