bolter rifle makes multiple shots with aimed fire
« on: August 22, 2011, 01:56:21 pm »
I've been seeing this bug consistently upon using the bolter rifle, where when using 'aimed shot' it will sometimes make two or even three shots, yet only one ammo is expended.  If any shot hits there are no more made (i.e. if the first misses then the second shot hits the third one doesn't fire; you can only score one hit with this bug afaik, but i've never had a missed shot hit a different target, so don't know what happens there).  It does seem that any shot that makes it through a wall yet misses causes another shot to be made until either there's a hit or the shot does not go through a wall, with a maximum of three shots per 'aimed shot'.  I haven't tried this with 'snap shot'.

I have same problem, but only with a electromagnetic rifles (is it proper name in english version?), plasma and conventional weapons (others i'm not researched yet) working normally.

pct, the bolter rifle is the name given to the electromagnetic rifle (railgun, not coilgun, which is apparently another EM weapon also present in the game) by the weapons development group (in the English version at least).  It's a weird bug, and although it usually works out to my favor (up to three shot attempts with the relatively accurate 'aimed shot'), I hope it is found and fixed.  Many players dislike the EM rifle, but I find it to be a decent replacement for the sniper rifle.  The two wall penetration ability is pretty awesome, especially through floors/ceilings (three-round burst here is deadly close range).

I can confirm that this Bug still appears in 2.4 Dev. I dont know if someone already tried to fix it.

It was. The bug is already fixed. Should not happen in 2.5-dev anymore.
