PC - Pallet flickering

MaggotCorpse Member Posts: 17
edited June 2021 in Bug Reporting

How to reproduce the issue:

1) Start a game as a killer

2) Look for a thrown pallet

3) Eventually, in different maps, the pallet flickering will occur

NOTE: Please note that this is very random, but since the release of the latest patch, I've seen this occur in Yamaoka, a Coldwin Farm instance and Hawkins, as shown below. For this particular map, I was able to record only this flickering, but it happened twice in this same match.

EDIT: I've forgot to mention; I've only seen this while playing killer as Nemesis.

    I can confirm now that, you can see this flickering playing as survivor as well (it happened twice, in different maps, but always against Nemesis). It happened at a much longer distance that the one displayed in the video (probably 25/30m?)

    Tested it in a Custom game (I was Leon, my brother played Killer; Nemesis) and the pallet flickered. (Also glitched into the ground a bit, though that may be the map specifically. Hawkins.)

    Stand next to a pallet and turn your camera the right angle and you can make it flicker away:

    Also happening on PS5 on survivor perspective. I was literally running into pallets that would appear a moment later and past pallets that I could have used in a chase. It reminded me of when dream pallets are dropped into existence, but the killer was Nemesis.

    Playing Survivor against Nemesis on Crotus Prenn, the shack pallet was down and completely invisible. Could vault over it, but couldn’t see it and it blocked entrance into shack. Might be related to this flickering issue.

    I think its part of optimization but it isn't fully tuned yet to be seamless

    same for PC, when the visual will be different, the pallet isn't showed correctly during a chase .

    Here there is a small video (in a custom match), this visual is from survivor side. The Hag

    I also had this as survivor on PC. Several different maps. I think it may have happened with other killers besides Nemesis, but I'm not 100% sure, since almost all the games were vs Nemesis.

    Which killer? For me it only happened with nemesis, and mainly when hi missed the pallet break.

    Had the same issue as OP but as survivor on Red Wood Forest. While I was repairing a generator I noticed I could make a pallet disappear or flicker depending on how my camera was oriented.

    Yeah, I've noticed it too. It wasn't a real issue for me until just now when I was being chased by the killer and ran into a flickering pallet that was invisible at first - blocking me. The killer was able to grab me since I wasn't able to react in time when it suddenly appeared :(

    As killer, I've only seen this as Nemesis.

    As survivor, it happened in several maps (can't recall all of them, but there's evidence of at least 2 maps, and seen it happen in many others). It also seems to be visible at a considerable distance; the farther away I was when I saw this occur, the more "flickery" the pallet was, but I'm assuming that depends on the camara angle as mentioned above. It happened against different killers (Nemesis, Ghostface & hillbilly at least).

    I've seen this happen as well, playing as Cannibal on The Game but only on the upper floor, depending heavily on camera orientation. Steam version.
