Default [0957] Crate + shotgun bug.

When certain crates are shot on its top face with a shotgun, they speed off in the direction that the player is pointing. While some may consider this an exploit since you can move crates around, I don't think it occurs with any other crates other than the one on Muttrah. You also can't build firebases with them AFAIK so its kind of pointless.

Steps to Reproduce:
Get a shotgun, and shoot the top of a supply crate and it will shoot off in a different direction.

Screenshots / Video:

Begins @ 2:30, Spuz recorded it.

Tested On:
TG Muttrah as indicated in the video, tried with a Remington pump on Asad Khal however it didn't work on them. It could be something wrong with the mass of the MEC permanent crates.

Gorezizzle was the one who found it, he may know more.

ive noticed that many times on many maps. its possible with every crate (except fixed ones @ repair stations) and can be very very very annoying -> (what ive already witnessed: people just messin around with it. people using it to teamkill in main bases or at all. people using it to insta kill spawning players).

by the way, as far as i noticed this, it works from almost every angle you choose to shoot at it, not only from the top. i never thought about it as being a bug... just as pure annoyance.

Need Furst Aid?

I can +1 this. I've experienced it ONLY with mapper placed crates (i.e. ones in main bases, on carriers, etc.). Any shotgun will work, and it doesn't ALWAYS happen. I was fooling around on the Op. Barracuda carrier and shot the crate in the hanger with my shotgun(on the wooden bottom, I was being stupid trying to kill the crate) and it sped towards me, killing me.

Bug has been around since 0.9

Its most effective when you shoot the canvas area of the shotgun. Works with every type of buckshot shotgun (not sure about breaching slugs). Sometimes you can shoot the crates and it doesnt happen, sometimes it does. You do not have to be sitting ontop of the crate.

they take damage from it, but only when they move. after 3 moves they blow up. so they can't be moved far anyway.
