Dead Players losing nickname when checking for pulse
Closed, ResolvedPublic


hi i have looked around but could not find something like this.

If you kill another player and you want to check out his Playername he will lose his name and the status text will say : "Unknown Entity" has no pulse.

Please make it possible to still see the name of a dead player, even after respawning. this until the player body despawns or gets hidden by another player.


Legacy ID
No Bug
Steps To Reproduce
  • kill another player
  • Check his pulse
  • status text will say "Unknown Entity" has no pulse

Don't do this. Otherwise it won't be real. You don't know the name of a dead person even if he is alive you don't know it. There should be no way to get the name of a person if he or she didn't said it to you. Where the hell you get the knowledge about a persons name without knowing him? Read it from his forehead? I don't think so..

but you know his name when you check his pulse(if player is alive), this is also without him telling you his name.
then why wouldnt this work when the player is dead ?

Maybe time for Dogtags ?

Hello Cyberthube and thank you for the report.
Characters which do not have a player logged into them (Characters 30 sec after login or corpses of players that have respawned already) are listed as unknown entities by design. Keep in mind that the game is still in Alpha state and that things such as this could change in the future.
