I joined a server with 3.2.4, spawned as medic, and after a while I saw in the obituaries that I killed a teammate with a landmine. Shocked Maybe the mine was placed by someone who was playing in my same player slot, and disconnected before I connected...

it's not a bug, it's a feature.

there's a serverside cvar controlling if landmines are removed on a disconnect, since it can be exploited in competition play. don't remember the name tho Smile

I see. And what happens if the player slot is empty when the landmine kill occurs? (i.e. what name appears in the obituaries?) Just curious. Smile

it does not crash... afaik, it's the same as if dyno goes off and gets a kill after disconnect... iirc the game stores their name, if it doesn't, i'll just paste "" for the name
