Battlefield 4 Bug Can Kill You When You Try To Shoot

Talk about game-breaking: Apparently, if you happen to have a revivable dead body standing between you and an enemy in Battlefield 4, there's a chance that downed will eat your bullets — or worse, will bounce something dangerous like a grenade or an RPG back into your face.

If you've been having trouble killing people in Battlefield 4 for seemingly no reason, or if your own weaponry has been mysteriously killing you, maybe this bug — which is showcased in the video above by jackfrags — is to blame. Jack Frags calls the bug the "death shield." Thankfully, if a body disappears, the shot is likely to start connecting again.

But until that happens, you can have situations where someone dies in/near a vehicle or person... which you can't destroy or kill because the death shield is absorbing all the damage. That's no good!

Hopefully DICE patches this ridiculous bug out soon.

    Wow. Woooow. I mean, woooooooooow. I never thought I would ever hear something bad about BF4 that could top anything from before. This game just gets worse and worse. Skipping QA to attempt to beat Call of Duty really hurt the game. Although by now I doubt EA cares and are more concerned about their new pet Titanfall finally beating CoD.

      lets just hope they don't cock that one up for us

        I have this feeling that EA, who have been following Activisions steps in releasing games as quick as possible, are putting pressure for a new Titanfall next year. Except this time force them to add in microtransactions for burn cards and new Titans.

      Respawn owns the IP, and is completely free to have Titanfall 2 published by Valve or Atlus or whatever. One can only dream...

    This has been a bug since day 1, i assumed it was part of the reg issues that have plagued it since release, or that i just happened to find every single invisible wall in the game.
    Glad someone finally got proof, try using an an RPG/LVG or grenades on metro or lockers, 50% come flying back at you instantly after being sent the entire length of a hallway.

    I have still NEVER noticed a glitch. I think i'm a pretty observant guy too, especially when it comes to these things. Meh. I'm still kinda glad this much has been made of it though, too many fixable issues plague games with no response from the developers.
