Multiple issues with MRAPS
Need More Info, NormalPublic

Description

These issues are currently in the live game as well as the dev build and are having quite a big effect in multiplayer PvP, causing randomness and imbalance. I don't believe this is intended as the Hunter is fine however the Strider and Ifrit are affected.

Ifrit and Strider susceptible to small arms fire.

The first issue is with the hull capabilities of the MRAPs (Strider and Ifrit) when small arms are being used against them, both the Strider and Ifrit passengers can be wiped out with 1 magazine of 7.62. However, the Hunter is fine. Considering these vehicles are suppose to be heavily armored to withstand explosive attacks I find it highly unusual that they are so weak against small arms.

Passengers extremely vulnerable to vehicle on vehicle collisions

The second issue is a multiplayer issue with the damage to players in any MRAP. When a collision happens between players there is a very high chance the whole crew of 1 of the vehicles is going to die regardless of how violent the impact was, this issue goes beyond desync and is actually a big issue in multiplayer PvP.

Hello.

Thank you for the report. Regarding the second paragraph it would really be good if there was a sure reproduction. Tested colisions and both crews survived.

I will get this updated with a video some time in the next 24 hours @Wulf

@Ben1295 are you using ace? I know the problem from there.

@Wulf Regarding the 2nd part of my report - I have attached a video which shows what I am trying to explain to you. When you did your testing was this with AI in the vehicles or actual players? From my own testing I believe collision issues are only happening in multiplayer.

Video: (This is happening with any combination of MRAP not only the ones showcased)

Maybe related. Would explain the MP aspect.

@Wulf Any update on this? Would be a shame if the patch went live with this issue still occurring.

Hello.

Ifrit and Strider susceptible to small arms fire.

This should be fixed in the Next Dev branch version.
