Exile features a "safe zone" around traders where players cannot die, so they can buy new items without worrying about being shot. To allow that, we apply a "god mode" to the player while they are in the safe zones. Also, god mode is being used for in-game admins. This works pretty well. Players cannot be shot, they do not take fall damage, you can drive them over and they survive explosions. However, spinning helicopter rotors still kill players when they run into them.

- Eject (or get out, depends on vehicle config if ejecting is possible)
- Run into the rotors
I remember testing this in Arma 1.48. I was able to run into a rotor and I did not die. Instead, Arma started the ragdoll simulation on my player.
