Did... I shoot myself?

Post by Shadow207B2 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 2:56 am

So i was playing Receiver, and i found a Taserbot, it hadn't noticed me yet, so i am for the middle and fire.
It wasnt going down, so i fired again, this time i heard some noise, like i got shot or stabbed, there were no turrets at all, and the taser bot was a bit away...
This freaked me out, has anyone else experienced this?

if it was a "EUGH" then you accidently put in a cheat code.

A cheat code that kills yourself?

There are ricochets in the game, it's possible that you died from your own bullet, and that also makes the flesh sound you described.

Yeah, but from my knowledge of firearms, its almost impossible to make a bullet ricochet straight back at you, yet it might have ricocheted off the robot, on a wall and at me?

This is strange, but might be possible, yet i was not shooting the robot at an angle.

You shot yourself. There's been a bit of a Receiver Russian Roulette forum game as a result of this. You can find some of the videos on YouTube.

This happened to me. I was about 2 feet away from the turret when I shot it, and it bounced back and hit me right in the center of my face. The reason I know the location is because I had god mode on, and I had a bullet hole in the center of my screen for the rest of the game.

That whole session was weird, actually. This drone detected me, and had made a wide turn in order to face me. It slammed itself into the wall and killed itself. :shock:

Anyway, I tried to screenshot the bullet hole, but when I pasted it into my image editor, it only showed my desktop. :(

Funny story, one time my friend was playing while I was watching, he eventually came up to a turret standing at the top of a flight of stairs.
He shot at it (any given number of shots) and the last bullet I saw ricocheted straight up, and a second or two later, hit him somewhere on the body causing his death.
It was a pretty hilarious moment.

The bullet physics of Receiver sometimes let bullet visibly fly in an arc when they still haven't embedded themselves in something, but still have momentum.

It was hilarious when I shot a turret and didn't disable it, but the bullet bounced off and arced over to a tazerbot, hit it in the propeller and sent it to the ground.

I was too busy laughing to notice that the turret had then spotted me and it shot me to death. But it was still worth it.

Sorry for the necro post, but this just happened to me, so I can pretty much confirm that you shot yourself.

If it makes you feel better, it seems I shot myself... ehrmmm twice. And don't mine the audio at the second half of the vid, I needed to fill it with something.
