  • M26 with underslung rail and heavy barrel prohibited

    There is a bug in BF3 where the M26 used in conjunction with underslung rail and a heavy barrel causes excessive damage. This is getting more widespread and publicly known, therefore the following exact combination will be prohibited on our servers until patched:
    • Assault Rifle
    • Underslung Rail
    • Heavy Barrel
    • M26 Mass / Dart

    Note that it's not the M26 that's banned, it's the combination above. When killed by an M26, please review the enemy loadout on the death screen and report those who use it.

    Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure it is only the DART that exhibits the bug. So if use the same loadout with a standard MASS, you aren't getting the glitch. Or am I not correct?

      Here's a video showing what the glitch does damage wise, according to this video it happens with the MASS and the DART.

        It is all of the mass with that combo. Except for the slug. I sure hope they roll out a fix quick, it is a devastating combo/glitch.

          Its horrible being on pub servers, Every 12 year old is using it.

          Just means less engineers to take on my tank.

            That explains why I've been killed frequently by the Dart lately!

                Drat. Last time I played, I decided to try the DART, which I've never seriously used before (I should add, I had never even heard about the bug). Just my luck that now I have to put it back in the box.

                  Re: M26 with underslung rail and heavy barrel prohibited

                  Darnit I was starting to use that combination pre patch and getting used to it on my G3A3 with buckshot for CQC situations :( now to put it away just as I was getting used to the swap over time.

                  Oh well removal of the heavy barrel when in those situations should be ok or are we removing the underslung and use the M26 as a seperate standoff?


                  Fallen can you clarify what would be acceptable so I dont get into trouble please.

                    if you don't have heavy barrel equipped then the M26 behaves as it should, so you can still have it underslung without exploiting.

                    Though imo, have a bipod on your G3 and use the M26 seperate. It's rather fun!

                      Correct, just swap the heavy barrel out for something else (flash suppressor etc), or take the underslung rail off.

                          And that explains the rounds I was having on a pubby server last night. I mean, I pretty much suck at this game still anyway, but this one guy that was using that combo was just absolutely mowing me down round after round, even most of the times that I got the drop on him.

                            Again, the M26 MASS and DART themselves are not prohibited. It is the specific combination listed in the OP that is prohibited. You may still use the M26 and its variants, but it may not be mounted on an underslung rail with the Heavy Barrel attachment. If you put a bipod or foregrip on the rifle, I believe it negates the bugs effect.

                              Has this been patched yet? Curious, as I haven't seen any of it pubbing today.
