Snipers spawning directly in sightlines

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can add it to our database for investigation.


Issue Description:

Snipers spawn directly in front of people. I’ve seen them spawn at any range, from 30m and instantly getting a shot on my teammates to spawning directly in front of my face and instantly shooting.

This happens every other Malice game or higher, especially with Endless hordes. Considering how dangerous snipers are and the fact that they spawn in already ready to shoot, this causes runs to be killed rather easily.

Steps to Reproduce:

This is random, no reliable way to reproduce.

Just play missions and you’ll eventually see a sniper spawn directly in your sightlines.

Platform:

Steam

Reproduction Rate:

Common (33%)
