In a couple of previous games of Steel Hunter I've managed to flip myself on to my side and then there has been a 5 second countdown and I'm turned back upright. Today I managed to flip on to my side and there was no countdown and I ended up being caught in a red zone and dying. Right at the end it looked as though the countdown may have started but by then it was too late. The only difference between this time and previous flips is that I was already in a yellow zone with my speed booster on.

 

Anyone know why I wasn't put upright?

I think the budget for fixing that bug was relocated to hire twitch royalty to play that mode.

Today I had the 5 sec reset on a side flip, but still get the 30 sec nuke if you turtle.

Funny thing is quite a few players will get you right side up before the kill shot.

 

TBH if you flip rest seemed a good idea because of the unrealistic gravity effects will cause flips on molehills

Happened with me - someone I was fighting flipped on their side and instead of just shooting him I tried to tun him turtle and instead pushed him back on to his tracks. He then killed me...

I played ST today to get the 5x missions for randoms. And the first game I played in the Red Dawn, I found 5 wrecks on the roof around town with red smoke still on it "I only noticed one in the battle notifications early on" So they definitely did something to it.
