Crashing while shooting rapidly. Possible due to shooting through fence
Need More Info, NormalPublic


I was in the experimental 3pp server on Nov 2nd. I shot multiple rounds (sporter) through a chain link fence at a zombie in Cherno and the game crashed. I rejoined a 3pp server and unloaded the entire mag for the sporter and the server crashed again.


Operating System
Windows 10
Steps To Reproduce

Shoot rapidly. I was not able to replicate on the next attempt. But will keep shooting through my mags and see how often it crashes

Event Timeline

was able to replicate again. So 3 out of 4 times so far.

and again. The servers are dropping immediately when I shoot a sporter (30 round mag with 20 bullets) until the mag is cleared. I was unable to replicate the crash when I was east of balota airfield. I shot through a fence and unloaded the mag. However, in a small firefight in balota town, the game crashed. This could have something to do with other players having to hear the rapid shots. I will continue to investigate.

If the problem is related to players hearing (certain) gunshots, that would explain why the servers crash more frequently after an hour or so, as it would coincide with more and more players picking up weapons and shooting them.

Hello AwkwardTickler
Does the issue occur still?

I have not been able to get the sporter and a mag yet. I have shot rapidly around many other players (6 person firefight at NWAF) that did not cause a crash. I have shot a RAK in the same position in Cherno at the fence and it did not cause a crash.
