  • One squad member shows up red?

    Thought I had better post to see if you guys can help.Here is the problem.
    Twice on TG server and once on dMw server when playing in a squad,one of my team members shows up with a red tag.This causes me to shoot that squad member and instantly gets me kicked. Has anyone else experienced this?I need it sorting quick as I dont want to get myself and dMw a bad rep.When I look at the squad list he is there,but dont think I can check that before I shoot him.Anyone point me in the right direction?

    its called the IFF bug...its been a problem since release and there hasnt been a fix for it yet....we have had this problem for a while and it really sucks for the person who has it.
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

      It's a bug that EA has never fixed. I think the player with the red tag has to reconnect to the server to fix the problem.

      - It's who you game with.

        Superfast reply,thx guys.On dMw server it was only me who saw him in red(not sure on TG server),so would re-connecting myself help?

              its a well known bug here, aslong as you explain your actions as being the iff bug it shouldnt be a problem, this bug really is a huge problem though and how EA managed to overlook it yet AGAIN is beyond me

                I have had the IFF bug 4 times on different servers. Disconnecting and reconnecting has always helped for me.

                  Norm, stop bugging them! ;)
                  Just agree to the Gentlemens contract in here. In there they say they will try and forgive TK's so if you'd sign it aswell it would be a sign of good will.

                      Headshotting your teammate 3 times in a row, after a friendly medic has revived him, is hardly accidental ;) :icon_lol:

                        I had this problem a few weeks ago seeing jepzilla as red. Didn't show up on my squad screen either so I had no idea he was in my squad (and thus got confused about who was speaking to me etc etc).

                        It is a pain in the arse, cos the amount of times I saw an enemy APC with a red tag pop up, and then fired a shot with my tank, only to read the name as the cannon shell is halfway towards my target was really frustrating for me - and a lot more for jep!


                        Is the IFF bug player related? I mean do people who get the bug get it a lot? I have seen it on others quite a few times, but never had it on myself (to my knowledge).

                          I've had it once when I was flying in Daqing, the enemy planes couldn't lock onto me :D
                          It was awesome.

                            wow, that would be cool, but they you would be shot down by gunns. has a plane ever been killed by a falling bomb? or arty? ya, it was a big problem last night when my helo kept getting shot down by friendly's. i never reconnected but it went away.

                              Well the IFF bug sure explains a lot. I thought I was seeing things just plain wrong

                              I haven't seen a flying jet get popped by a bomb from another flying jet yet.. but a Helo - Yep.. and arty.. YEP.. its a REAL surprise too!

                              Another good surprise there are helo-hover-capture boys (or girls) and you are spec-ops you can jump and release a wad of C4 as high on the flagpole as you can get - I bet you can guess the rest.
