Hello people.
Doing this topic to share a pretty big issue with Hellebore Outpost.
Firstly, i'll state that i love this new map and the multiple engagement opportunities it offers. And it's beautiful.

Now to the main point :
There's a big problem with some map hitboxes.
I'm thinking of one in particular in the canyon on one side of the map (next to the "tunnel")

The hitbox of the rocks is way bigger than the visual and you end up hitting an invisible wall a lot. Forgot to take a screen yesterday when i was in this spot and couldn't hit my ennemies consistantly even tho i tried to distance myself far from the wall, also the ennemies ended up rushing at me to get me out of this spot and had to expose themselves by going much further than they expected because even tho they had a clear visual on me, they kept hitting an invisible wall.
On the screen we can see how this spot is bugged :
if there was an enemy who was hiding behind the rocks and i flanked him so he was right in front of me with no cover anymore : I'll still shoot an invisible wall even tho he has no protection anymore (he can't shoot me either tho)

Hey there, 'Veolfen'... Any chance you could use your "F9" Key and get us some Coordinates so that PGI's Francois can more easily get a look at this Hellebore Outpost problem to fix it? :o

Of course. Took multiple screens with the F9 key activated.

It's not just this spot in particular but the whole area who has this hitbox problem.

So here's the whole area, red arrow pointing at the spot i was speaking of earlier :

So here's me standing in the spot i was speaking of in my previous post : Shooting an invisible wall from it

Here's me shooting at the same spot again (like in my first post, but with ballistics this time) : gun is shooting an invisible wall (and not the wall behind)

Posted Image

Here's an other spot where the bug happens (cut the screen badly so cropped the coordinates) but i'm kind of in the same spot where i was in the previous screen, a bit further back)

And an other spot again, same invisible wall bug :

Also to get back at the first spot, there's a texture bug with that brown floating rock :

TLDR & Conclusion :

Even if i pointed at 3 spots, it's not just those spots but the whole area (coordinates in screen 1 of this spot) with rock walls shaped like this (this whole canyon). The invisible hitboxes of those cliffs are much much bigger than their visuals and we end up with a big invisible wall problem.
People can't shoot at each other while clearly seeing each other.
Also i'm speaking of this canyon where i fought quite a bit, but this problem might happen in other area of the map if this cliff design can be found somewhere else on the map.

Roger that. Nice images, 'Veolfen', and well done on finding all of these issues... Hopefully, we'll soon see some fixes from Francois happen, if they're paying any attention whatsoever. ^_^
