Penalty for destroying team sentry gun, guardian or other equipment?

Reload_54

As of now there is no penalty or consequence of a team player destroying equipment. Today while playing Domination on high jacked we had a fairly good dominating run and I had a sentry gun and guardian set up high pinning down the other team in the back of the boat. My team mate starts shooting my sentry and in my frustration I kill him. I feel there should be an automatic kick from server or simple fix make the sentry gun and guardian equal to killing 3 players so anyone destroying them will get kicked. Thank you for your time.

    I can agree with you on that point. It's really frustrating when someone trolls their (supposed) teammates like that. It makes no sense to me to be in a game and do things that hurt your teams chances of winning.

     

    ....unless the guy has a buddy on the other team.....then of course, he's hoping you'll get mad and kill him. Then, not only does he destroy your equipment, but he gets you kicked from the game for team-killing as well.

     

    I'm no expert, but I think it would be pretty simple, in the grand scheme of things, to code the game so people on your team can't destroy your teams equipment.

     

    Maybe there's more to it than that. Just my 2 cents........

    Not saying this is what happened.  But there's a slight possibility he thought it belonged to the other team.  I play core TDM only and sometimes I see some clueless teammates trying to destroy my sentry.

    i say add this to the richochet programming. three bullets at friendly equipment = you're dead.

    I hate to admit it but I have been guilty of this before just for the simple fact that sometimes the team symbol won't appear over the equipment until I have started shooting it. This also happens periodically with team members the name won't show causing a team kill. I wish they would bring back ricochet I preferred that to being kicked from the game.

      I'm glad it isn't just me that happens to - "no name" over a teammate! I hate that! You try to be quick on the draw and fire first, THEN after you've already put a round or two into the guy, the name appears and you realize you just killed a teammate. It's tought to know if it's just and enemy running Cold Blooded or not, so you have to shoot. In HC I "try" to be careful, but sometimes it seems like a few seconds pass without a name showing, so you have to shoot.

       

      I've seen that happen on equipment, too. I've been in situations where a so-called teammate shoots at my sentry gun (for example), so I kill him to save the weapon. Then he respawns and comes right back to try and finish what he started. At that point, you know you have a troll on your hands.

        The name glitch happens if you're standing close to a building or some other object. If you or the teammate move slightly, the green name tag will apprear. I hate it too and have accidently killed teammates in HC.

        The simple trick is to look at uniform colors. At the start of the game, I always take notice to what color my team is wearing and it helps a lot.

          Because of the name no appearing on team players, I started to watching players uniforms to distinguish the enemy. Also I try to see where the enemy is spawning to make sure the head poking from the corner is not a team player. This is not a bullet proof technique, but reduce team kills by a lot.

           

          I had several occasion having my equipment, guardian, sentry, Stealth Shopper, Escort Drone or AGR destroyed by my team. The one it pains me more has been the couple of times my AGR has been destroyed. One time I was controlling it, going along with my team, cleaning the pat for them, then suddenly I started getting hit from one side. For my surprise when I look is one of my team shooting at it. A the end I just kill him with a rocket, after he ignored my request of stop trying to destroy my AGR.

    I agree man. I play solo and always get these people who destroy my equipment. Either with gun or their emp grenades. I don't run emp nades because I know how it feels to have my equipment destroyed. Either it be sentry guns or as simple as bouncing Betty.

    The larger issue? The whole team-killed/kick system implemented in hardcore game modes in Call of Duty is flawed.

     

    Sometimes, you just accidentally kill 3 people on your team - it happens. You shouldn't be kicked for it eveyr single time, because of the fear that some troll could join a game and kill all of you?

     

    The hardcore ricochet method is somewhat better, but even then, is extremely annoying.

     

    My suggestion = implement a voting system, where you can vote to kick out teammates.

     

    Killed 3 teammates by accident? No worries. Your teammates have the option to choose whether or not to kick you from the game, rather than to make it absolutely up to the game itself. The game isn't able to distinguish between accidental team kills and a troll.

     

    Tying this back to the OP's issue about having friendlies destroy equipment - if someone is making a habit of it, the entire team can vote that culprit out. It also saves the OP from having to kill him and lets him focus on playing the game
