Player is able to repair a vehicle instantly
Reviewed, WishlistPublic



Instant repair:
A: If a player repair specialist is in the ragdoll state and if he is close enough to a vehicle that can be repaired the option "Repair [vehicle]" is available and will instantly repair that vehicle.

B: It is possible to stand close to the vehicle with a "Get in ..." option, use the repair option and immediately enter the vehicle, effectively aborting the repair animation and finishing the repair instantaneously.

In both cases the skipping or interrupting of the repair animation finishes the repairs at once.

None of the above mentioned. {F19872}

Surely someone else must think this is an exploit?

Does this only happen in the dev build?

No, it's possible on stable branch. I'll update the ticket.

It is still possible. #23469
