Issue description
Item 2903 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 19:54:51

Sometimes, sniper rifle fires two projectiles in a single shot. It's not just visuals, there are 2 bullets -- i've seen one of them hitting the wall and other -- the alien somewhere about 10 squares from the first hit. Screenshot attached.

Two sniper rifle bullets flying in parallel

The bug seems to be visual in nature. I have seen this happen many times, but it never uses more than that one shot of ammo. The same bug can also happen with the Electromagnetic Rifle.

I can also confirm this. Hardware that I am using nvidia GT220 card with proprietary nvidia driver under ubuntu 11.04 (i386) version 2.4-dev

is this still the case?

I've never noticed it, but never tried to replicate it. I'll try and load up a skirmish and shoot lots of sniper rifles and see if I can tell.

I can confirm this happens. But I've looked in the weapon definitions and can't see any reason for this. There is no delaybetweenshots, which can cause multiple shots to appear on a single-shot weapon.

I looked at the particles and nothing jumped out at me, but that might be the source of the problem, so I'll assign this to Crystan.
