Press "T" to get turret view, select enemy, press fire button - nothing.  Nothing.  Nothing.

 

What is up?

The reargun has to aim at a target first, especially if it's looking the other way. However, there is a bug I've experienced several times in active combat where the gun seemingly "jams" and will stop firing at the enemy. The only way I can fix that is by manually forcing the gun to stop aiming at anything and then reacquire the target. It will shoot again, but there's no guarantee of another "jam" :(


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

I have found that keeping the turret point of aim slightly above the target helps.

You got to lay Ivan off the Vodka consumable. It ruins his aim between swigs.

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

Finally.  An explanation that makes sense.

it is just a balancing feature that lets your enemies to kill you instead of you killing them all the time.

Yeah, I'm not even getting the gun to fire when I mash the button.  I need to record it.

it could be that they've taken it away from you only to sell it back...

tokens, gold, premium turret?

I see a pattern


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Definitely noticed this and have submitted it for review with Devs as it is not a constant.

i'd buy a gold LMB if my turret would fire when i pressed it

 

there's got to be a reason why it's not working correctly now...  there were some other code changes being made to turret fire, and someone wasn't careful 

 

what were the "some other code changes being made to turret fire"?

 

were there any patch notes about changes to turret fire?   if not, why not?
