HE shotShell projectiles create fake explosions each time they pass through foliage
Feedback, NormalPublic

Description

When shooting HE shotShell projectiles through trees they create full scale explosions that do no damage. These explosions trigger HitPart on the shell, HitPart on vehicles nearby but no HandleDamage so explosions are mostly effects and semi-false event triggers.

Same doesn't happen with 40mm GMG shotShell grenades though, I couldn't figure out why exactly.

All in all, tank shells shouldn't explode 20 times during flight, even if its just effects.

Cannot reproduce. Do you mean the HitExplosion EHs? Also which branch are you testing on? It should be Dev
In fact it's the opposite for me. Sometimes HitExplosion doesn't trigger?

Shot HitExplosion doesn't seem to trigger for tree hits like this at all, only shot HitPart does. If you'll place a quad under a tree it will also trigger entity HitPart but without any damage. Either way, EHs are not the issue, the issue is that tank shell explodes in (visually) full strength each time it passed through a bush or a tree. Its a latest dev build but this issue existed for years (tested in 1.10 recently, same picture there)

I see what you mean now. I thought you're talking about the EH.
You should've mentioned that in the issue description

Sorry it wasn't clear. Lack of HitExplosion might be an issue too because shotShell kinda explodes. But I'd say its a bug and it shouldn't explode 20 times in the first place.
