The tall grass absorbs almost all damage if eg. vehicle is inside it
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Sometimes (quite often) the tall grass on Altis absorbs all damage directed against vehicles inside it. Eg. placing a heavy satchel under light vehicle and detonating it results in the given vehicle taking no damage, as the tall grass absorbs the whole energy of explosion.

This has become a major issue in eg. TvT mods with MHQs, as players place the MHQs (respawn points) inside the tall grass, which makes the MHQs undestroyable in practice.

Steps To Reproduce

Place vehicles (eg. Ifrit or Hunter) inside tall grass and try to blow them up with eg. satchels – sometimes they stop taking damage as the grass absorbs the whole energy from explosion.

Additional Information

Doesn't work always, but quite often.

Screenshot attached. This issue is apparently already reproduced and should be soon fixed according to David [Foltyn], so this ticket can be closed on my part.
