Just had a moment in game, where for an instant, in the middle of a nose to nose fight to the death...mine and quick...my eyes saw something that my brain quickly said 'nahhhh must have been something else'' so I carried on...and a little later I went back and checked the detailed stats and actually ....yep i think I saw it right after all. 

Paris, southern flank, seconds into the game have rushed up to gain position in my M26 Pershing. Surprisingly aggressive WZ 111 1 4 races up to take me out and the so crap team fail to push up to support/draw fire. This leaves my t8 to the ravages of the t9 at point blank and of course I'm toast from the outset BUT might as well put some rounds into him so at least a teammate might have a chance later. OOOHHHHH.. surprise, surprise the 3 of my ap/apcr rounds that hit go and bounce. In the middle of the 30 second fight to the death I hear I have damaged him.. Now I can't have rammed him as i was effectively parked and certainly NOT for 268 damage! I was still reloading when i damaged him .. which was immediately after 1 of his rounds BOUNCED of me...the only one :( ..  and so it would APPEAR right back into him... SO I get the credit for him shooting himself via me... LOL...shame the team were rolled afterwards in short order. 


The details show my gun didn't do the damage and everything tallies with what I saw.


So anyone else hurt their attacker using the ammo they themselves fired at you? Anyone got a kill doing it LOL......must be 1 in 10,000 chance...

You must check the replay with freecam, because I don't see how that would be possible. Only ricochets allow the shell to continue travelling, not direct 90 degree bounces, which would be necessary to reflect the shell back on to him. Also WZ 1-4 has 490 alpha thus can not cause 268 dmg...

I'm not sure that's what happened as it says you blocked 440 alpha from him, so if he'd hit himself the lowest roll would be 330. You sure there wasn't some crushing going on?

I'm pretty sure I've seen this once before... If you aim your gun inside the other tank's turret (i.e. into his gun breach), his shell never leaves his tank, instead it explodes in his turret, effectively dealing damage to himself.


I dunno if that's exactly what happened here...a replay would be useful.

I'll bet on him firing HE at point-blank range and splashing himself. :harp:
