Default [Bug] Masterbath - minigun turret
Reply With Quote


When I die while in the minigun turret next to the tub nodes, I can't respawn. All I'm able to do after that is spectate. Given the frequency the map is played, it's strange I never see others mention it. Is there any workaround, besides rejoining? The open map/click core trick doesn't work on this.

I don't remember this being an issue until this past month or 2. Worst case scenario I just stop going in the thing from now on. Just wondering if anyone else knows anything about it.

EDIT: Just to clarify...If just my player dies in the turret, the problem doesn't happen. It's only if both myself and the turret get blown up at the same time.

Never had that issue. Try erasing the map from your computer and redownloading it. Edit: Does this issue happens offline too?

I think it happened to me once a long time ago. I thought maybe it was because I tried to 'exit' the turret at the exact same time it blew up. I thought I was bumped to the other team, then found out I was spectating.

Hasn't happened in a very long time, though. Could it be something goofy like your 'exit' key would accidentally toggle the game menu, and because of repeated mouse clicks to re-spawn you blindly end up clicking on the 'spectate' button by accident?

The bug didn't happen offline. I intentionally let myself get blown up in it though. As Mad_Dach5und said, maybe it's when you try to exit at the same time, which I try(and fail) to do often.

I'm positive it's not the spectate button. I'm still in the game at the time, on the scoreboard, I just can't respawn.

I downloaded the map again today. Only managed to get in the turret once during online play. Turret blew up, I respawned without an issue(but didn't try to exit). Hopefully it was just a corrupt download from before.

I just remembered....I can't say with 100% certainty, but it seems to always be when I hijack the opposing team's turret. I try to hop in there during a push to the core to cause a little chaos. I get blown up and then I go "NOO! The enemy core is vulnerable...can't spawn!" to myself.

I'll try to do more online testing and post back here if I find anything with the new download, so I don't make people go on wild bug chases.

Something like this happens to me from time to time.

Next time, hit the "ESC" key, click the "Map" menu/button at the top left of the screen, and then click on your power core. It should respawn you back at the core.

ahhh... if that is indeed what we're talking about here.... it ONLY has ever happened to me at the start of a round. Never during the round.

This has happened to me a few times also, though not in association with the mini turret. You're listed as a player, but can't play. You're sort of stuck in spectate mode. Selecting the map and suiciding don't help. The only solution seems to be to disconnect and reconnect (which if the server was full, usually ends up in you having to spectate, or worse, leaves you unable to rejoin at all). Bummer.

He did, however, say that this trick doesn't work.. I missed this part of his post:

no kidding.. here's the log...

  • player A(blue) hops in his teams mini-gun turret
  • after spending 20sec in it, decides it blows, leaves.
  • player B(red)shows up, and spends 5min shooting BlueTeam in backs b4 they realize it
Now, if it were a lazer turret... maybe would be utilized more.

You can mow down incoming raptors or enemy tanks (ion or regular). That said, you're like a sitting duck though. Actually, if your teammates going for the teleport on top of the table don't heal you regularly, you're a dead duck .

The middle node is pretty well impossible to take with an opposing mini in action. Mostly just a pain in the ass at that distance, but enough trouble to keep the node down

Maybe you should add a second version of MasterBath to the map rotation. This way we could play it twice as often thereby giving you additional feedback to help with the turret issue.
