Strange Battlefield 4 bug duplicates player, lets him shoot himself

One of the weirdest BF4 bugs duplicates a player and lets him shoot his own double -- and die in the process.

We’ve seen plenty of weird Battlefield 4 bugs so far. Some are interesting, some are funny, but most are just annoying. The above bug seems to be all three in one. The player spawned, but found out that an exact copy — a doppelganger — of him remained at spawn. To make things even more absurd, the player could shoot his double and get hit.

And as you may have guessed it, he killed himself. By shooting his double. It really is an odd bug, and we can only imagine how many networking and netcode problems have to pile up in order for something like this to happen.

Maybe it’s a new feature, maybe it might lead to something like this…

      What if the enemy finds your double? Then you’ll think you randomly died then you will want it fixed.

      This is not funny, people can abuse this bug to make other players’ experience even worse than it already is. Strange? Yes. But more like sad.

      Yes, it’s sad that such a huge AAA title in 2013 can have such pathetic bugs in it. This just goes to show how incompetent DICE are and how demanding EA is.

      Combine the two and you get this half-assed, unfinished piece of turd.

        DICE isn’t incompetent. They rushed software development and their internal test team didn’t have enough time to test such a complex end product. EA is a company that is controlled by investors. EA states a product is going to be released in a certain quarter. Investors reinforce their investment for that time. EA has to stick to that commitment or they lose them. It’s as simple as that. EA guaranteed told them ship it broke, fix it later. DICE I’m sure would have given us a better product without the EA connection and unrealistic release date.
