    Rocket Launcher bug

    Dear Epic,

    Please consider fixing the rocket launcher bug that many of us have seen. In short, when you are almost out of ammo and you load up the rockets, it's as if it fires faster than you expect. Try it. Start with only two or 3 rockets and load them up. It fires prematurely or something. If anyone else knows what I mean and there is a more accurate way to describe it, please feel free because I only experienced it in the heat of battle. I died twice last night because of it Thanks!

    I can hardly describe it better, but it has to be addressed. Annoying and clearly a bug, imo.

      Bingo, and it's a big problem. I don't think it occurred in the pre-patch version, so something apparently made the Rocket Launcher buggy in the patch.

        So when you have only 2 rockets left the RL auto-fires once you've loaded your last rocket?
        Nothing new, 2k4 RL did the same thing

          the problem I had yesterday is they didn't fire at all. It was like the launcher just ate the rockets.

              normally it shouldn't be the rocket launcher eating the rockets. it's better if it's people who eat them

              if you pick up another rocket launcher and switch to it. it will automaticly launch the rockets loaded from the glitch.

                there is a bug with the RL and the final shots and it is hard to describe...

                what it seems like to me is that if you have 3 or less and hold the fire button down to load them all, they actually seem to take longer than they should to fire (to me) and then when they do fire the weapon rapidly switches to your next best available and immeditely starts firing faster than it seems it should.

                whatever the bug is, somethings not right when you run out of ammo while loading your last rockets...

                  Are you sure you guys aren't trying to load 3 rockets and you only have 2 left so when it loads the two rockets it suddenly goes off?

                    here's my describing

                    when you are charging rockets and are on low ammo 3-6, and the third rocket gets loaden then it switchs to another weapon and nothing happens, then if you switch back to rocket then they get fired.

                      Is this something new with the latest patch? It's never happened to me and I've been playing quiet a bit since demo.

                        thanks, now i know it's not me at fault - LOL

                        i like to load up rockets while around a corner, time it right, then dodge around the corner timing my "fire" when i'm clear of the wall;

                        i've shot the **** out of some walls and never knew why!! :-)

                        thanks,
                        CD

                          its not just auto it shoots faster-before its mento and sometimes it just switches to another weapon and projectiles go invis

                              As I see it when you fire the RL it becomes a timing issue. When your up close you tend to kill yourself...not that you should even use the RL as a melee weapon. It is ever so slight, but enough to slam you down.

                              It does fire prematurely and you can see it.
