This bug/exploit should get some higher priority now Adam, since it's getting more and more abused by the community in competitive servers such as Battle Royale Mod, Epoch, KoTH, etc.

Fix please Bohemia!

If you guys at Bohemia actually care for your games (and the brand) I'd really recommend that you assign this bug an actual priority rating. Bugs like this one are toxic for competitive games and you can either shine by fixing it or show that you don't care for your fanbase by further ignoring it. Please fix this, thanks!

Really heavy bug in competitive games....

Fix this at some point please, some bugs can be ignored because they are only slightly inconvenient where as this one is borderline abusive.

It got fixed partially.
I'm no longer able to reproduce running in a seabed on stable branch, however one of the initial concerns of this ticket still persist as exploitable in the current stable branch 1.48

ChuWie are you using Steam Dev or Stable?

As mentioned, I tested it on stable branch.
I will take some time later today and will test it on dev branch as well.

Ok, I could test it quicker than expected.

I can confirm all the issues/exploitation mentioned in this ticket have been successfully solved in the Dev build (tested with v1.49.131774)

  • Character can no longer infinite sprint w/o taking a rest
  • can no longer run full speed uphills
  • can no longer run under seabed

Marvelous, thanks BI !!
