Yesterday, an interesting thread appeared on the AW forum, in which the player KasperMK showed a few videos with “interesting” shots done by one of the players from the opposite team.
What is so unusual in these shots? Well, have a look:
Additionaly, a similar video from inside_tank:
The theory about cheats and hacks appeared quite quickly (the fact that in all of the above-mentioned cases, players from the YETI battalion took part, added only extra fuel to the fire).
Of course, in theory, the first two reasons do not make sense because all calculations are done on the server side. Due to this fact, another theory appeared, this time with hitboxes. Many objects in the game have incorrect hitboxes (or even don’t have them at all), so you can shoot normally through them.
Players concluded that the YETI battalion must have access to a “tool” that allows them to see hitboxes, that’s why it was possible to make such a precise shot through the objects as seen in the second video.
What do you think about this whole situation? IMHO, something is very fishy here. 😛
@Update – It looks like it could have been server problems.
