    Bogus missile lock-on warnings

    I hate it when in ONS, I get a fake milssile lock-on warning. I keep panicing thinking "where's it coming from!?" So I can avoid it. But then I realize there is no avril locking onto me, so I really hate that. Is epic gonna fix that?

    Or it could be a missile from a raptor. I seem to get a missile lock warning when they can just see me, not having fired a missile yet, but I'm not sure about that.

      It was my impression that you don't get the missle lock warning until the missle has been fired.

      I have noticed this as well. I'll get a missle lock warning and avoid the missle by putting something between me and the missle. The missle will blow up on a mountain or something, but I still have a missle lock warning. There have been times where I have flown into structures and there is no way someone can lock a missle on me and I still get the warning.

      There is something buggy about that missle warning system.

          Nah - you get a warning as soon as an AVRiL gun is aimed at you, whether or not it's fired.


          Sometimes you can avoid a missile and still have the lock displayed - which is a bug that exiting and re-entering the vehicle does not fix.

            Same here. I get it quite regularly in turrets, which makes shooting down inbound avrils quite tricky as I have to rely on picking them up visually and not with a warning.

              Well, sometimes the missile lock warning just doesn't go away anymore untill another one locks onto you. Not sure why, but it is annoying.

                I've also found that if you hijack a vehicle that had a missle lock warning on it with another player (and didnt destroy the vehicle) - it remains with you.

                  I can guarantee there's something screwy. I got a missile lock-on warning IMMEDIATELY AFTER getting into a raptor last night, while I was the only person left in the server. There had been 1 person on the opposing team priorly, and he had left about 5 min earlier.

                    There are a couple of bugs with missile lock-ons.. sometimes in a manta, you will get a missile lock that NEVER goes away, regardless of whether there's a missile coming towards you, whether you hide, whatever. You can also not get missile locks sometimes.. in all vehicles. This annoys me a lot more.

                      I've had this happen, both online and in Instant Action, where a vehicle will suddenly decide that there's a missile locked onto it, and will say so whenever you're in it. I've even had it happen where I get out of the vehicle, and reenter it later, and it still has a missile lock on it. It's a legitimate issue.

                        Yeah that's what I mean.
