So I'm sure you guys have noticed this lately.

but what on earth happened with some of the destructible objects?

I can easily shoot through thin walls of concrete(like those on ensk, for example)

but now, for some unbelown reason, those trucks(lorries, cars, what have you) which for as long as I remember, where able to shoot through, now completely block shells.

I honestly don't understand why this was changed, but it has messed my shots more often than not.

 

was this change actually on purpose?

please enlighten me why this is the case, because I'd really like to know.

Thanks for bothering to read my post, and I will hopefully learn something new!

If it changed then it was a while back.  Maybe when they introduced HD maps?

 

Far as I know you can shoot through cars and do damage but not the larger trucks.

The HD rework changed them from simple objects which went poof at the slightest touch to more complicated items with various parts so I guess it was then.

AFAIK destructible items reduce pen on AP and APCR by 25mm. HE of course explodes on impact with them. Not sure about HESH and HEAT but logically they should also be rendered ineffective.

I had a very annoying game on Pilsen yesterday when my Lowe smashed through the iron metal gates to the factory and the bloody gate attached itself to the front of my turret, completely blinding me for about 30 seconds

I can't remember that ever happening before

Interestingly enough the train carts on like Himmelsdorf for example don't ''absorb'' shells while the trucks on Ensk do. I honestly don't like how they have done the objects now, but since it most likely won't be changed it's good to just adapt and try to remember how the different objects behave.

Yeah i also noticed that on Highway today,a small truck just blocked my 50b APCR 

 

Oh and this happened on Sand River today:

 

 

I am also relatively certain that this is a new Bug,as i didn`t notice anything like this in the past few Months.

Only AP and APCR pass through objects.

 

HE, HESH, HEP, HEAT all get stopped.

Been there a while.  If you watch Iyouxin stream he's been pointing it out for several months - he seems to have every bush and obstacle in the game memorised.

 

That video looks more like you have video setting that aren't showing a rock.

Not all objects though - trucks will stop AP/APCR but small cars won't.

This includes tractors, they stop shells completely as well. I've noticed that a long time ago.

I just tried that position and I can tell u the following:

 

U can shoot through these things, but they do not destruct.

 

My best guess: U shot through and the shell hit an enemy tank behind these things but in front of your target which was not visible. You can check that quite easily if you count your missed shot and then check the after battle report fitting to the replay of your video.
