ive had this happen multiple time as well, probably about 50/50 chance of it detonating in my face as soon as i place it. needs an arming timer

Not sure what causes this but 25% of the time the M8 SLAM detonates when you place it and kills the player. I have decided to stop using the thing as it's so unpredictable.

I do not have the issue of it blowing up when I plant it. I have tried top create an ambush with it and a vehicle and it never blows up. If I have a column of men approach it goes off. It states that the SLAM have an 8m range on armored targets. It should be able to be placed on the side of the road and detonate when a vehicle passes.

My subjective impression is that this bug almost only occure on "larger" (i.e. more units/objects are around) multiplayer maps. I face this bug very frequently on the Domination 2.99e Map and can't reproduce it on singleplayer or simple editor maps yet.

The problem is that it spawns closer to you the more you aim down. If you aim down enough it spawns inside of the player and explodes.

It also explodes instantly if placed nearby a tank
