Title: Coffin Shotgun Glitch
Post by: Jackie Chandler on September 10, 2013, 10:04:17 AM
Now, to clarify, I haven't done extensive testing with this glitch yet, as it's admittedly difficult to replicate. As far as I can tell, it requires at least two players - one dead, and one alive with a Shotgun. The glitch occurs when the living player tries to revive the dead player with a shot from the Shotgun. And, as weird as it sounds - I kid you not - the living player will spawn out of the coffin instead after losing all his items.

My friends and I have run into this glitch twice now, and I believe I have a vague idea of what's happening. Of course, it's simply speculation at this point, but please hear me out. When the living player shoots open the coffin with the Shotgun, there's a chance that the player being revived will spawn in the same location as a piece of the Shotgun's buckshot. If that were to happen in any other instance, of course, the player would immediately die at that amount of health. So, if the coffin fails to spawn each dead player because of that and cycles to the last possible player (the surviving one), that would explain why the living player teleports there without any of his items. Whenever you die naturally, you lose all of your items anyway, and if the surviving player would be teleporting on top of a dead body in any other circumstance, the body would disappear. As for why the player doesn't get killed by his own Shotgun blast, either you can't be hurt by your own bullets unless they bounce back to you somehow, or the bullets have moved far enough by the time the surviving player spawns in the coffin.

If anyone else feels like experimenting with this glitch, I'd be interested in finding out more about it. It may very well be possible with other weapons or items, especially if my hypothesis is correct. Perhaps the Crysknife would serve the same purpose, depending on how many active frames the swing has on it.

Anyway, I hope this information is helpful. And while I believe this glitch is possible on every version of the game, it's only happened to my friends and I on the 360 version and the PS3 version before (once on each).

This bug has completely ruined multiplayer for me and my friends. No matter how far we get whenever we have to revive someone from the dead using the coffin it ends up killing us both and spawning they player who tried to open the coffin with no items. This has been like this for months now. It makes multiplayer unplayable.
