Hello.

  • The fired RPG-7 projectile will explode immediately

Yes we are aware of this problem and we are looking into it. Thank you for the report.

Although

  • While reloading, his rifle will move incollectly to his back
  • AI won't use his RPG-7

we haven't encountered. AI uses the RPG-7 as it would any other RPG. We will have a look at realoding if indeed there is such a problem.

Thank you for review.

  • While reloading, his rifle will move incollectly to his back

This is animation-related problem. As you might see slung rifle is move to his back which is glitchy.

This is still an issue. I originally submitted this demonstration video on the ACE3 github, thinking it was an issue on their end, but it is reproducible in vanilla too. It is worth noting that this will occur in any vehicle with FFV seats, some of them just happen to not take enough damage to explode. I originally discovered it when we had 6 people dying as a result, so it can have quite serious consequences...

Interestingly i can reproduce the RPG-7 destroying the offroad 100% of the times. However other launchers work just fine.

We are looking into it, but there is currently no new info regarding the issue, it appears that for some reason sometimes the rocket spawns incorrectly and it only happens under certain angle and not always.

Ok, the fix to this issue should be in the next proper update of the game.
