[TF2] Succubus Exploit
« on: November 08, 2010, 05:08:28 PM »
The Succubus Hunter's "Totem Incantation" gains xp/hp/credits quite rapidly just sitting in spawn class cycling.

I thought I reported this ages ago... does it also still get double kills?

Just a FYI you still haven't fixed this, even though it's in the Old Bugs section.
One way of stopping it would be having it only grant you the extra stuff after you've died at least once since last spawn. Your very first spawn wouldn't give you anything, but seeing how it's your first spawn, you'd only have 0 skulls anyway.
One global boolean set true in player_death, and the "bonus" you get would be encapsulated in a simple
if( bool)
{
//Bonus here
bool = false;
}

from what i can gather, it's giving you the bonuses if you sit in spawn and change classes?
why not simply make it so that you lose all skulls when you suicide (from non-environmental dmg) and when you change class?

Well, that'd break the entire class. You're kind of meant to get max skulls at one point for the rest of the map.
And changing class happens A LOT in TF2.

The exploit is simply getting max. skulls and constantly switching classes, which constantly fires the event player_spawn, where the bonus is given.

I just remembered that if they simply kill themselves repeatedly, it'd still be semi-spammable.
A check to see if the attacker == 0 || attacker == client before resetting the boolean should stop that aswell.


EDIT: Thanks, by the way.

You don't lose skulls when you die. I don't think so, anyway.

Perhaps that's another bug? :p
