Broken "Markedman"?

9 replies 327 views Edited Jan 26, 2013
I was playing The Lab, and unfortunately, I was the Markedman. No problem, then. I got into a gun fight and the one who gunned me down died at the same time I killed him.
As soon as I respawned, I died... apparently by my own grenade, somehow. After I respawned again, I immediatly died... Again! By my own grenade! (It had to be the shortest markedman ever). Needless to say the opposing team caught up in a hurry.
Is this a common problem or random issue? And is there a way to avoid it (other than NOT beeing the Markedman)?

happens a lot. Even if you are not marked man, you can get killed by a grenade when you respond. But when it happened to me, it was a frenade of a guy of my team, never mine.

Did you have revenge as booster?

If you preform a throwback when you die you will drop the grenade and it will explode at the moment you respawn.

Its becoming more common. Kinda like the dead body glitch.

The 1.15 patch really f--ed up this game.

I didn't have revenge booster, but a grenade did land on me a second or two after I died. If it was the dead body glitch, I would've understand killing me at the moment I spawned the first time... don't know why I died following the first respawn. Can the dead body glitch happen consecutively? I haven't seen stories yet about happenning twice in a round.

Oh OK, my bad. Unfortunately, this is just something that is part of the game now. Just like lag and the DBG.

This issue has been around since day 1 of the game. The issue is tied into how the Marked Man instantly respawns when Marked instead of having to wait 5 seconds to respawn. It's not new. And there's no way to avoid it if it happens.
