View Full Version : [1.3]M8 one shots full health Puma!
15th Nov 06, 11:24 PM
I couldnt believe it! a one shot kill on my puma against its front armor, chalk this up as another big bug. it happens a little after 18 minutes when my puma comes up to fire on his mg nest. Also, im not sure but on a previous map when i loaded one volks squad in a halftrack i could not get them out.

A one shot from what? Im not going to plough through 18 mins to see unless its worth it. If its a 57mm with AT rounds loaded I say fairplay (as its no doubt a freak dice roll thing as nothing ive seen one shot kills pumas so far).

A one shot from what?
A Greyhound dude he already posted it as 'M8 one shots....'
16th Nov 06, 3:31 AM
Sounds like a brief glitch to me. M8 hasnt one shot killed a puma for me, so doesnt happen very much.
Will keep an eye out for it tho.

This is a bug, don't put your vehicles near trees. ;)
16th Nov 06, 5:28 AM
Made short 35 seconds clip from the replay so everyone can see this without watching 18min replay (even with faster replay it take too long) :)
that is a short´n funny movie mr. blackout.

omfg thats hillarious btw
16th Nov 06, 6:59 AM
Perhaps there was a greyhound mine in front of the puma, and the shot from the grayhound triggered it?
16th Nov 06, 7:23 AM
There was no mine, i watched the replay 3 times to make the short clip and there is definitly no mine!
16th Nov 06, 8:00 AM
no mines, no nearby trees, no at guns just the uber m8 105 mm howitzer
btw nice video blackout :) :bandit:
16th Nov 06, 9:20 AM
wouldve been better if it was a jeep
nevertheless great stuff
16th Nov 06, 7:46 PM
What? You guys didn't know all vehicles have a slight chance to get a "headshot" against each other?
16th Nov 06, 7:52 PM
LoL great video blackout IMO it needs some music with the record stopping sound when the puma gets blown up
24th Nov 06, 7:30 AM
My toughts were "mine infront" at first but there is no crater or mine sound explosion, is there really a chance there is 1% or so deathblow chance, relic?!
Or just a bug
24th Nov 06, 8:03 AM
If it's a bug it needs to be addressed. If it's a feature, I like it.
24th Nov 06, 8:12 AM
Happened to me too! M8 vs Upgunned Puma, Full hp Upgunned Puma dies in 1 M8 shot! Ouch. Just once in all the games I've played so far though.
24th Nov 06, 8:18 AM
LOL! Now that's ownage!
24th Nov 06, 8:19 AM
Hmmm. Seems like a feature similar to American engineers 1% instant-kill. Yes, I'm referring to the Allied side as Americans because that's what they are. All I see is American units. No British, Canadian, Polish <insert Allied country here>. Just good ol' boys from the US of A.
24th Nov 06, 10:20 AM
That would have been a classic epic video. Engineers one-shot a puma. Or Tiger, for that matter.
24th Nov 06, 6:35 PM
AfTHere's a ton of fire incoming from the left though, and the ones just before the puma blows up looks heavier than MG's... but do I want to watch 18 mins of replay to make sure? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........
Edit: Yep, it's the M8. Watched the whole thing in bullet time. (NIce that you can not only watch in fast motion but also slow motion. Nice bullet time effect of bullet striking and Puma going *boom*). Nice hit.
Not that the guy didn't need all the help he could get, though. :D
24th Nov 06, 6:53 PM
Trust me, the m8 killed the puma and there was 1 mg team to left no more not less.
And the mg team did not fired at the puma with armor piercing ammo.
26th Nov 06, 7:17 AM
yeah it definately wasnt a game changing event lol, but I was trying to knock out that bunker and the next thing i see is an M8 strolling around the corner and I start laughing, I then immediately stop laughing, register the event then start laughing again it was a great moment.
26th Nov 06, 8:01 AM
why arent there any bugs in favour of axis?!
26th Nov 06, 5:49 PM
Great video, never seen this happen before!.. Funny stuff
26th Nov 06, 6:36 PM
It's not from patch 1.3 btw it's been in the game since beta.
@sinister this works for pumas against m8's too.
27th Nov 06, 9:26 AM
this bug has been reported a while ago (on GR.org) it's when your unit is near a tree. it was there before 1.3 :P
27th Nov 06, 11:51 AM
Didn't the guy say there were no trees around?
27th Nov 06, 1:10 PM
I love when people dont watch the replay, THERE WERE NO TREES ON THE DAMN BRIDGE
28th Nov 06, 4:11 AM
That was funny, funny stuff.
Hi Mum =D
29th Nov 06, 7:41 AM
Impeccable Allied players records might be accreditted on a certain degree in the absence of 'beneficial' bugs for Axis.
29th Nov 06, 11:33 AM
Tree One-Shot Bug? Maybe the shot hit the tree and fell on your Puma. :banana:
