Deploying a weapon when prone near a building results in player under ground
Reviewed, WishlistPublic


In Arma, buildings and other objects are frequently modelled with walls and stairs that extend below flat ground level (z=0), to allow the object to be placed on steep terrain and still work.

If the player goes prone and deploys a weapon near a building with such subterranean stairs or other platforms, the player can snap to these underground surfaces, placing the player partially or completely underground.

The player should not be able to deploy in the ground. {F27762}
