Getting killed 5 steps past a wall...

The number of times I get killed when I am 4-5 steps past a wall or cover is maddening. Anyone else have this? Is it server tick rate? I don't seem to have lag spikes or anything. Ping is around 58.

@scienceteacher74 Let's wait for the tech savy to reply but this has been a problem since season 0. Also happens to some games like paladins for me.

★★ Guide
@scienceteacher74 Walls are ethereal in this game. I can be standing on a staircase and the enemy is not within view, but magically he can still hit me. Garbage game engine.

Hey, there's an exploration of this in this blog from a few months back.

The short version is that because of lag you were visible when the opponent shot, and the hit was honored by the server, even if on your screen you were already to safety. But the blog itself goes into more detail and gives some examples.
