Okay I'm wondering if I was hallucenating but I swear on my body that I saw it happen. I was watching my brother play, and he and Loque (those who play against bots will be familiar with Loque's aiming skills) killled each other on Instagib, both died at the same time, but both got a frag. None of the speed settings and whatnot were adjusted, i think it was a masterful bot level game. This is the only time I've seen it, has anyone else?

I just didn't think it was possible, someone always has to fire first. But it was cool to see.

Well, if both players fire at the same time then I guess it's possible.

It's also possible for two Formula 1 drivers to get the same time. Unlikely, but possibly.

or 3....which is just plain WIERD AS HELL...and happened...

I reckon there is a small, normally insignificant, distance between firing, and dying, somewhere along the line. About 0.05 seconds probably.

Making it rare, but not impossible.

I'd like to know what would happen if this occured when both players killed were one point away from winning.

When online (when) An unreal engine game will favor players who have higher ping over ones that have lower ping...thus a shot from an instagib rifle can be finally launched from the rifle after the player has already died. If it where not for this netcode then no matter how good a players was, as his ping increases he would be too easy to hit and kill. A UT server will allow the low ping player to frag the high ping player instantly because he has low ping. It will take several ms later for the data from the high ping player to arrive on the server. The server then frags the high ping player...and several ms later both players find out. No I'm not refering to zero ping. Zero ping lets the client deside if another player was actually hit...this gives high ping players all the advantage...and low ping players all the stress of laggy players jumping around.

This is much harder when on a lan or in a bot match. The rifle fire must be timed perfectly. Since there is almost equal latency the chances are slim but possible.

I can see the experiment now on a public server...
first try 1v1 and both firing and dieing at the same time, then a circle of 3 players each fragging the one to the right of them, then 4 in a circle...5..ect. :D
