Friendly Vehicles appearing as Enemies

Prev1
It's really annoying when I'm playing on Yavin IV as a Stormtrooper to see my radar light up red, so I whip around to take out the enemy but it's just a friendly AT-ST.....
Has anyone else been experiencing this? Where for some reason friendly vehicles appear as the enemy on your radar. I know that this is a bug, I have no idea when it arrived or if it has been picked up on already, but it is something that keeps happening

  • Yes! This has been in since launch but I think with all the other bugs and CW nonsense we've just got used to it.

    It is annoying tho, I agree.

    I thought so. But yeah, hella annoying
  • @F8RGE Is this going to be fixed?

    Thanks for the bump

    Anytime. The broken radar is one of the most annoying bugs in the game for those who use radar for situational awareness. Even friendly star fighters show as enemies. How do they get this wrong and why does it take so long to fix?

  • finally someone speak about this.. a minor problem sure, but anyway annoying

    It's been in the game right from the start. It was 'fixed' in one of the patches as well.

    Supposedly fixed at one point for Crait (despite being broken on all other maps featuring ATSTs) then back to completely broken with the next update.

    Not a very good patch then was it?

  • @EA_Charlemagne Is this on DICE's bug list and when can we expect a fix?

    I always thought it had been around for a while, but I had only just acknowledged it recently (even though I knew about it......if you get my drift?)
  • Hoping this bug, and many others, will be fixed for the no named mode of modes.

    I haven't been able to play yet, but I didn't see it mentioned in the CT
  • Still broken. Also noticed that if a teammate mans a blaster turret, they show as an enemy on the radar.

    I thought that happened to me once.

    But yep, I'm still getting the bug on Capital Supremacy. I'm not sure about Galactic Assault, I haven't played it in a while.

    I noticed this in CS. An ally in my squad spawned in a vehicle next to me and my radar would not stop detecting them as an enemy.

    I've found that it's a lot more prevalent in CS than GA
  • I've found that it's a lot more prevalent in CS than GA

    Happens in both modes consistently. When I was playing CS it became particularly troublesome in defending those middle ground objective locations. Still no response from the devs if they are even aware of it and or a fix is being looked at. Unfortunately, this bug will likely carry over into the next CS map(s).

    @F8RGE @EA_Charlemagne any word on this?
  • It annoys me a lot. I'm one of those people who uses the rader equipment to look for enemies. It's hard to not to use the rader independently.

    Same, I tend to focus on my radar more than looking at the screen (surprisingly works really well for me), so constantly having a red blip on the radar that is a team mate, not an enemy is soooooo frustrating. Many a time an enemy is hiding in the red blip of a friendly vehicle and getting me killed

    Questionable.....the amount of times I've seen Youtubers get constantly killed by surprise even though the enemy that killed them was on the radar, is staggering
  • Just a friendly reminder that friendly vehicles and teammates who man turrets show as an enemy on the radar. This red shading on radar creates problems for those of us who use the radar for some situational awareness. It would be appreciated if we could get a response if this is being addressed.bbppufiy6ih1.jpg

    Is this another of the fixes that they broke again when they did the next patch?

    Sure. Have another. Would like to know if this is being fixed.

  • @F8RGE Is this going to be fixed?

    Seconded.
    Perhaps replace it with an icon like the one used to indicate vehicles on the scoreboard?

    Was just about to try and find this thread to bump again.
    Just had a game of GA on Hoth, this bug was still rife. Was trying to enter the hangars and saw my radar go red, turned and saw a friendly AT-ST instead, so I carried on.....radar went red again behind me, I ignored it as I thought it was just the AT-ST.....nope, it was an enemy rebel that had flanked us.
    This bug is harming gameplay! @F8RGE please fix this!

    Been there too often. It happens when teammates man turrets as well.

    If this was a hero specific bug/feature or talking about the game impacting ability for heroes to wear or not wear a hood or the shading of hero lips, then we might have gotten a response.

    It’s too true, if it was a problem only affecting heroes, it would’ve been addressed and fixed by now
  • Does this happen with Tauntauns? I never paid attention to that, usually I’m too focused on the AT-ST’s and starfighters.

    I believe that it does, yes
  • This bug has actually been with us since Battlefront 2015. I remember it was introduced towards the end of the game. I don't know if it was an update to the Frostbite engine that caused it, but it seems to have leaked into this game as well

    @LOTR2013

    Thanks for reminding us that this BUG is also one of those day 1 bugs still out there. I'm getting together all BUGs from day 1 to make an incredible 2 year anniversary party for all of them. I don't want to miss any of these. We're in June, 5 months left until their birthday is here! I can't wait!
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.
    But visit the Rogue Bros Channel, there we document many BUGs and possible workarounds for them. There's also gameplay and other videos related to EA's Star Wars Battlefront (I & II)
