ok i know it might not be easy to do and useless on some servers, but what about a flag that takes a set ammount of hits and makes it as if it was shot into a portal and will just randomly come out of a portal

You mean some sort of turret? But it takes the shots fired from
other people, and uses those.
Actually, from what I can gather, there's a much better turret being implemented.
There would be no need for this flag.
I'm thinking I need a better sig than this...

I think what he means is, while you're holding this flag, you don't get hit. Instead, the bullets teleport to the nearest teleporter. Kind of like the shield flag.

I think it's a bit too similar to SH though. Maybe if it ricocheted off the tank instead of being absorbed...

I understand what Murtagh is saying. My question is for Goodbye2U since he seems to indicate that some sort of turret is being worked on.

(resists posting Phoenix Wright's "Take That!")

It's in the wiki project ideas, namely here:
Two-player tanks *

Make modifications to the game such that it is optionally possible (e.g. via a server configuration) to allow multiplayer tanks where one player can only drive and the other can control the turret. The implementation would have to be some simple/intuitive interface to join and depart tanks as well as implemented in a fashion that preserves the "spirit" of BZFlag's operational simplicity.
But apparently I missed that this was an idea, not something being worked on. My bad.

yes this is a good idea as well. it could even be a better one, but there was never really a plan to put it in a turret or something, just to kinda route it onto the teleporters, but the reflect idea is better because some worlds dont have portals
