The fact that this exploit still hasn't been fixed makes me doubt the capabilities of Respawn's programmers. It's game breaking and its continued existence is absurd! If your programmers can't replace the few lines of code that reference particle_remove_all within an hour, then you need better programmers. It is absolutely mind blowing this exploit is still possible when the fix would be so relatively easy. Is it so hard for you to search that string in your code-base and modify it? Is your code so poor that variable references get obfuscated to the point you can't find them?

 

I'm having a really hard time thinking of any scenario where this fix would take more than 15 minutes, and you've had MONTHS to fix it. Hell, give me the affected source files and I'll do it for you!

 

Trying to be a fan of your game is so &$**#$ infuriating!!

Easier to remove a post than to make a simple fix to the game. Classic.

I can't believe adding this config option to the list of already filtered out config options, like dev_console, novid, etc is so apparently bottom of the list for you, that it's been in game for months. You say you're all about fighting cheaters, yet leave an engine level exploit sitting right there to use freely. It's extremely disheartening and makes no sense at all.
