View Full Version : Concussion Field + Hoverboard = Suicide

The Concussion Field is a pretty awesome powerup, but I've noticed a small problem with it. If you try to use your hoverboard while the Concussion Field is active, you will be killed instantly and be credited with a suicide.

I think the problem is that you are taller when standing on your hoverboard, but the Field stays the same size, so your head hits the top of it and that kills you.

The powerup works great with the Manta and Viper though. I don't know if it was intended or not, but because your character is not fully enclosed by those two vehicles, the field is still visible and works as it should. Flying around in a Manta with a Concussion Filed makes the powerup even more awesome.

Thanks for letting us know. We won't re-release the pack or anything, but it's possible we may release a fix for that, seeing it's just a tiny package.

Hmm, that's interesting. I'll look into it as soon as I'm finished up with stuff for v4 (or when I decide I need some time out) :)

I actually thought that was a feature! lol Since it's a powerful weapon of sorts, you are restricted a bit with it (can't hoverboard or else suicide). :)
