The swamp bamboo thickets/bushes seem far too resistant to gunfire and explosives.
New, WishlistPublic


The tall, thick bushes that lay by the inland ponds and creeks on Altis are nearly impenetrable to most weapons in the game.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Get two people
  2. One person stands in front of the bush then backs up into it (to make sure you just aren't missing)
  3. The shooter should fire when he can't see the other tester.
  4. With 5.56 and 6.5 rounds little to no damage will be done by nearly all rounds, though 6.5 is somewhat more effective. 7.62 is even more effective, but headshots at close range (both players inside the bush, able to see each other) can still do nothing. The 9mm SMGs will do no damage even when both players are inside the bush only inches away from each other. Vehicles mounted with HE autocannons will notice that it is impossible to kill someone in these bushes, thrown and launched grenades have a similar (lack of) effect.
Additional Information

It makes sense that these bamboo clusters should have some effect on the rounds passing through them, but currently it is nearly impossible to kill a player inside of one. It's as if the bamboo forms an impenetrable shield around anyone inside it, even to the point of two players in the same bush being unable to kill one another.

Could not reproduce, 9mm smgs worked fine through the bamboo. The auto cannon HE rounds do penetrate but they also have the exploding effect at the point of penetration, pretty sure that is a bug.
