List of things that light you up on enemy minimap?

Obviously, firing an unsuppressed weapon and being spotted.

But occasionally I see a figure being lit up, for perhaps half a second and I don't know why. Breaking windows? Yelling out that they're suppressed? Has this been worked out? Maybe if there is some coding that might explain some of thing that can be dug up.

Re: List of things that light you up on enemy minimap?

I'm not sure, but I've always had the idea that if one of your teammates is looking at an enemy (so that the orange triangle will appear) he will also be visible on everyones minimap. I'm basically just curious if this is the case, so consider this an expansion to OP's question =P

It's rumored that sprinting and vaulting can light you up on the mini-map.

Good question, would be nice to have precise info on this.

I think just looking at an enemy player lights them up for a second as well

I believe being shot at lights you up on the minimap. and also being detected by a t-ugs or mav (not spotted, the passive motion sensor)

Suppressor was always bogus. Probably a mistake. Didn't work before patch and was deleted afterwards.

MK3 can't have a suppressor anymore, at least on Xbox. Though I loved using Suppressor + Frags. "You can't hear me, but MY BULLETS EXPLODE!!!"

Re: List of things that light you up on enemy minimap?

Here's the list.

Following things will make you/enemy show up on mini-map:
- Shooting with normal weapons without suppressor
- Shooting while using flash suppressor
- M26 Under barrel, no silencer
- M320 Under barrel, no silencer
- M26 Normally
- M320 Normally
- RPG/SMAW/Javelin
- Shooting with tank
- Using horn on jeep
^ - Every shot you show up on map for around 250millisecond no matter what type of weapon you're using.

- When you aim at someone
^ - You have to aim directly at enemy for like second and he shows up on minimap. After your aim goes off him, he doesn't show up anymore. Doesn't 3D spot him.

- Being at area of MAV/Tugs and moving fast enough.
^ - If you move slowly, ie while being prone or crouching, neither detects you.
^ - Both have radius of 30 meters.
^ - Even when they beep at same speed, MAV scans 50% slower; every 3 second while TUG-S does it every 2 second.
^ - MAV still beebs every 2 second when it doesn't detect anyone but once there is enemy moving nearby, it gives the "detected" beep every 3 sec and still the normal "nobodys here" beep every 2 sec . Don't trust the mav's beeps. For Tugs they're accurate.
^ - Detected enemys show up for one second.

- Normally spotting someone.
^ - He will show up for 7 seconds.

- Proximity scan
^ - Keeps constantly spotted, can't find value of radius, would have to try in-game.



Following things will NOT make you/enemy show up on mini-map:
Shooting while using suppressor
M26 Under barrel, silencer
M320 Under barrel, silencer
Knife player/glass/anything
Throw grenade
Sprint
Prone
Jump over obstacle
Falling off so you take damage
Being totally suppressed


I think that's all -:>-
