I have to say this issue is a major one. Seeing through walls is quite a deal breaker if still there ocne game comes out!

Of course this is a game breaker
Hope they do some fix's on this asap

This is why 3rd person is wrong.

Reported this today (0004055) but found out that its already here.
Closed mine as duplicate. But some kids already made negative vote on mine. Lol.

Well i think some camera adjustements with walls can fix this without problem.
And yes there gonna be alot of kids that donth want this to be fixed lol.

The fix has nothing to do with camera adjustments and everything to do with fully clipping building models - something that will come with later artwork updates.

Uploading an image of me exploiting it. You can really be unfair

This is why I play on 1st person servers.

You can do this in first person as well using a long range scope. If you go prone while standing near the wall and then zoom the scope in fully you can see through the wall sometimes. That's possible with rocks and the ground as well on hillsides.

I don't see just I go in the wall and door. This is a FPS issue?

Confirmed, and this can be done almost and probably everywhere. Please fix this major issue. Spread the word to the Developers, via Twitter or Facebook.

UP! Hope any dev review this

THis issue require simple camera fix. Do camera more flexible to walls. Just like collusion.

upvoted. Horrible issue :/

Needs to be fixed before Beta!

No problem with camera. The only problem is that you can put your head in the walls. It works with first person view as well.

This is a serious problem now, people shamelessly go around posting videos of them doing this.
Can't believe devs haven't mentioned anything about it.
Serious broken issues should be fixed before implementing new features.

I think the way you write will not get an answer from anyone. No please or so. They do not have to account you. If i'm a developer i would ignore you. Sorry, but this is not the way to communicate.
And yes, this is an ALPHA. No Beta or so and you know it BEFORE you bought the game.
Try it with "Dear dev's. It would be nice if anyone could give as a small feedback if you are working on this issue and what is the status of it!?".
You are not the owner of this project.
And check your keyboard. Caps Lock appears to be broken.
And as i wrote before: Wall-jumps have a bigger prioity as wall glitshs by whatching i a special angle

This is a high priority bug. Look at the last uploaded screenshot, you can see everywhere, even stucked zombies inside the building...

This bug becomes a part of the game because as long as they do not fix the bug-user how jump in the walls this is the only way to check if there is one of those guys.
FIRST fix bug using by jumping in the invisible rooms ( THEN fix this bug

Not happening to me any more, just tried it with prison and ATC, found no way to look through walls anymore. And you are not able to jump (at least I wasn't able to jump) when i'm close to a wall, so I think this issue has been fixed in some way

No it's not fixed. Look at 4.jpg, the last uploaded file.

Ok, you are right, only a few buildings seem to be fixed, as I said: the Prison ant ATC. This glitch still appears in other buildings...

Wrong again Tobbs. It still occurs in the prison and ATC. I tested it yesterday at the NWAF with two of my buddies. It works in the prison on the first floor, and in the ATC on the second floor, but only on the walls to the left and the right of the staircase. Also, in the far right corner opposite the metal stairs.

i hope the code is not this kind of SH*T that the devs have to fix it on EVERY DAMN WALL (of a house-type) ..

its really a BIG BUG and NEED to be fixed soon, its very comparebale to the zombs-tru-wall glitch-bug!!!

Issue is with walls and internet connections. If you keep running at a wall and jumping, depending on your internet connection(whenever you hit some lag), you'll move through the wall and be inside.

e_xil added a comment.Apr 8 2014, 5:15 PM


so the zombs are always in lags? ;))

This is a serious one, along with jumping through walls in the prison building, these are legal hacks at the moment and everbody is exploiting them

until they fix this major bug ,i wont touch this game again

" No problem with camera. The only problem is that you can put your head in the walls. It works with first person view as well. "

There is no game in whe world with more wall-hacks/glitchs than DayZ unfortunately.

There has to be a fix for this. It's ruined the game.

This is currently the most important issue to fix! It can completely ruin game experience.
Fixing this is much more important, than adding items, hunting, cars and stuff.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for sending in all your information/feedback regarding this issue. The devs are aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

Please feel free to monitor this issue for further updates.



Please do not fix this bug until you fix the exploiting into walls, while it does suck and does ruin the game it's sometimes the only way to see if someone is camping inside the walls in the jailcell buildings or under the hangars, otherwise you just get killed very unfairly.

Hello again everyone,

Closing issue since it is fixed in the latest internal build.

Thanks again for all the feedback!
