Flashlights need to be killswitched right now

Options

This literally makes the game unplayable for killer, every survivor can hide in the locker and not get hit, or if they do they just have self care equipped. Flashlights need to be turned off

    I don't think they can or should ban people for something that is a break on the devs side. It isn't like they've done something to their game client to get an advantage.

    It's like the Blast Mine bug where you go out of body sometimes. Invisible and able to unhook and open gates. I didn't plan for it to happen but it was funny as hell.

    But banning them is different story.

    At least i never saw anyone banned for that.

    I think back when there was bug for wall hacks BHVR said something about exploits being bannable but idk if there was actually any consequences (like always lol)

    Teaming with killer is also against rules and bannable and yet, non of my reports made them banned.

    Except cheating, i don't think they are actually banning people.

    This is the first I've heard of this glitch. Makes me wonder about my game last night with a slugging killer. I jumped in the locker mid chase to force him to grab me as the game was dragging with being slugged, picked up, repeat. He stood outside the locker the whole time I was in it, and I thought we were having a stand off. Was it some sort of glitch?

    Edit: I've looked it up, nothing to do with the glitch. It was just a stand off.

    Signal boost to this post. It's a really horrible exploit and it seems like a worrying number of Survivors are using it. Until this is fixed I'm not playing and I'd encourage everyone else to do the same, Killer is tough enough without invincible Survivors and I don't want to risk getting tunnelled out as Survivor because I'm the only one who can be targeted.

    Has this even been acknowledged by BHVR? I see nothing on their social media.

    BHVR is closed on the weekends. I assume action will be taken come Monday.

    Only if said exploit is officially recognised and announced as such.

    Otherwise, you can't be banned for stumbling upon a bug or glitch.

    Surely that'd be a bad idea? You don't want more players to be aware of this glitch because BHVR paraded it around on social media.

    Side note, I have no idea what this is actually referring to lol

    I understand your frustration but I kinda feel posting about it is a bad idea because doing so encourages more players to look it up and try it.

    Maybe read my next post? And leave the attitude at home.

    On principle, yes it should be punishable. But principles don't drive policies.

    Not really a way to know if this can be bannable. USUALLY exploits are only bannable when the Devs acknowledge them and write a message ingame that it is bannable. And so far, if I am not mistaken, this only applied to the Bug where Legions Mending-Add Ons were bugged to stack so that it will result in huge mending times because it increased with every Frenzy-Hit.

    However, most of the time exploits are related to Perks or Add Ons being bugged and the Devs give the benefit of the doubt. Nobody was banned for Nurse being ridicously fast with certain Add Ons, or when using bugged Bamboozle, bugged Merciless Storm, bugged Wake Up... Even tho many players were exploiting those Bugs and knew exactly what they were doing.

    Furthermore, there is a difference between someone trying out the recent Glitch for one time and people doing it frequently.

    Just run into match with duo crossplatform players (they were obviously duo and they had this in mind) who just right from the start using flashlight bug to enter lockers to make themselfs untargatable. You can't hit them or open the locker, they are inside the locker and self-care out of there if needed. They run around me and whenever you decided to chase them, they run to locker and hide there.

    Okay, but the problem is I don't record or don't have any recording program to use while playing game since that just slows down the performence and such. It's kinda sad the in-game report for cheaters and exploiters don't rly do anything since you don't have evidence and I bet most players don't have as well.

    Imagine if we had one day real replay system, if someone gets reported, the match is sended and can be checked if something for real happend... oh well. I quess nothing will happend to them. But thanks for answering.

    Yup it's bannable, don't worry if you doesn't record, just report those, devs can " review " the game still tho

    This glitch is doing my head in. I'm fed up of people cheating and holding games hostage like this. It is annoying for killers but also surv. Like I'm trying to play solo q but we're basically playing a man down because there's often someone abusing this glitch

    It is bannable but having videos is not usually useful as they go with streamer mode so you can't see their names.

    Just be sure to report them ingame. I hope they get permaban althought I don't think so as I'm having this exploiters every game so if they permaban all of them the game will be in trouble in terms of numbers...

    Bugs being bannable feels like it's always been wildly inconsistent

    This seems like a situation where this bug would be bannable (you're never going to accidentally do this bug) but we can only guess as BHVR works in mysterious ways

    It's mainly dependant on if you're breaking a rule in tandem by using a bug.

    For example: Sitting in an area where the killer physically cannot reach you for an extended period of time (like here) would count as holding the game hostage.

    I think that's the reasoning they used for the Infinite Mending Legion bug being bannable as well. The mend times were so long that it classed as a hostage situation.

    Just had a game of all 4 people exploiting this. I thought it was map specific (haddonfield) but the fact that it is EVERY locker on EVERY map is horrible. Flashlights need to be killswitched

    I ran in to a full squad running the overcome, self care, bite the bullet, and lucky break build. All with beams. They would all just vanish into lockers lol.

    Every game there's a person doing the infamous exploit.

    BHVR's reaction is silence.

    Content makers keep putting that exploit in a spotlight, explicitly showing how to do it & doing it themselves.

    Nuff`said

    People can walk into lockers and are unhittable or pickable by killers, basically if a swf abuses it, no one can get downed and they can infinitely hold the game hostage
