I took a screenshot last night of a Bat Chat with the turret out of whack kinda like that. It was weird.

I think this is something to do with a sniper view spectator bug. When looking down the barrel of the gun, you're likely not actually seeing the same model as you would in the third person perspective, you're seeing something a little more immersive and/or less obstructive for the tank you're in.


It's a trick used in FPS games as well. The bug here seems to be the game skipping over the part where it moves said model into the correct position for 3rd person perspective for the player.


With what I've seen on twitter, smaller barreled guns simply get pushed to the side slightly, and longer barreled tanks...like yours tend to get pushed a bit further back...to prevent clipping into the camera while in first person and also avoid obstructing your view.


Now watch nobody appreciate the science lol :D

It was part of the update... along with the "out of wack" map rotation. :P

The T95E2 had a gap between it's turret and hull for a long time before they fixed it. Basically autopen even with HE. They said nothing was wrong , but then fixed it a few months later.

I was spectating someone playing the Machine the other day and the gun was offset to the side of the turret instead of dead center in the front.  You could see the hole in the turret that it was supposed to be in lol.


Also saw a JgPz E100 barrel flickering green/rainbow colors while I was aiming at it.  The other tank next to it was doing the same thing but I don't recall the tank type.

That’s not what they mean when they say “go hull down!” :teethhappy:

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 


He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.
