It’s even weirder in practice.
A new Battlefield 4 bug has been discovered courtesy of Jack Frag on YouTube. You can check out the bug in question above, but in short, it turns the dead into shields for the living.
It’s highly nuanced too so stay with us for a minute. When a player is in a downed state, for which they can accept defibrillators and be revived within a short time span, then a live player immediately standing behind them receives no damage from bullets. Grenades bounce right back and even tank shells can’t penetrate. This is because the downed body is still registering as an obstacle. This only works for downed players – shoot up some one real good and make them deader than dead, and you’ll find no such shield protecting the players behind them.
It really is a bug that has the potential to break several aspects of the game. Have you experienced it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
