INSANE NEW BUG I FOUND-

INSANE NEW BUG I FOUND-

Postby BMN » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:55 pm

when a silo targets itself (same with subs) the nukes launches and but never appears. it says "in flight" over the silo, but there is no nuke.
the nuke flies forever and so is never spent- that is it does not count as being used on the thing that counts the nukes in game

I will have screenshots soon to back this up

The can shoot at them, although this is a complete waste of time/effort.

Edit, just looked at the pic, if you self target a silo, nothing happens except you lose the number of nukes you self targeted. It's as if they get the command to launch, are removed from the payload roster, but never actually launch.


Now, I'm sure there is much older posts out there, but this is the first one I ran across.
