Spectate Fire

    When I am a zombie and get ignited by a napalm grenade, then go into spectate, I have fire under me, and when I look at someone, they are on fire, but they do not take any damage. Just a little bug I found while in spectate after being lit on fire as a zombie.

    Blame Valve/HPE. It's not really an issue though since admins are the only ones that can force themselves into spectate, and as an admin you should know better.

    When you parent something to a player it'll stick with them at all times until the round is over, even while in spectator.

    Once I specated a guy when I was on fire and he was running away but he turned slow because of the fire and got stabbed by other zombies lul. I kept it a secret and laughed my ass at this one.

      It doesn't actually burn them or slow them down lol or else it would be a real problem.

      It does, say if I spammed a materia in Mako Reactor I'd be on fire for a minute or so, if I went to spectate I could slow people down by spectating them.

      Here you go. I got my partner tony montana giving you guys a proof too that it does hurt and take away damage and slow you down and if you want another proof, go try it out. Get on fire then go to specate on zm as fast as you can.Also i never wanted this thread to be posted rofl. I had it a secret :razz:

      That could be a major, pretty abuse able problem for admins....

      Looks like you're right, it used to just be there and not do anything. Now it is a problem :/

      It doesn't hurt them, just slows down the one you're spectating as well as anyone around them.

      It's also something that shouldn't have been a secret. This is a really big advantage that admins can have over players.

      This is a loooong withstanding bug. Admins are the only ones able to do this glitch and if you're found purposely doing it you will be dealt with. We don't appreciate these antics!

        How is this the same? The spectate glitch involves admins on fire forcing themselves into spectate, this keeps the fire attached to their entity even in spec, and if they fly around near players, their fire does damage. If a zombie gets killed while on fire, does the fire stay there where they were killed? Stick to the zombie when he respawns? What happens?

        most the time it stays where it was killed but some times it will glitch and the zombie can go spec with fire still on him

        ah... I guess they have to do it in the short time between respawns... seems like it would be a rare occurrence but definitely an easy to do glitch if you know about it.
