Missle War 2.3 Question

Post by CaptainHiggins » Tue Dec 29, 2009 5:58 am

First, sorry if this is the wrong place, I'm new to these forums.

I was playing BZFlag in Missle War 2.3 earlier tonight, and I was on one of the towers on the way to the Geno tower (I forget which). Nemesis90123 had geno and was on the ground in front of our base, and suddenly I got hit with geno. He might have jumped, but could not have reached my height.

I thought that he might have hit the pyramid in front of the entrance to the base, but I tested it, and couldn't make it work.

Does anyone know how that happened?

It is very likely it's a pyramid ricochet. There are some very nice ones on that map.

Because you can look at the chat console and see who the first one to die was. Plus it would say at the top of the screen that "you" were hit instead of a "teammate".
