Has anyone else had a problem with their main guns firing by themselves?  Any ideas?

 

thanks

Are you using a mouse on a laptop that has a touch pad?   It's happened to me, when a random thumb would hit the touchpad.

I think I've had this happen before on my desktop.  Try Alt+tab to your desktop.  Click on said desktop (Just the desktop.  You don't need to open anything) And try to tab back to the game.  With luck the issue should resolve itself.  It might be more common on... Fullscreen?  It's been a long time since I've had the problem.

Yeah, I've experienced the same problem... it's never a full broadside though, just one gun/turret. My arms don't come anywhere close to the trackpad mouse buttons, and my fingers only come near the trackpad, so I don't see how my guns are firing when I'm not firing them either. :Smile_teethhappy: So, do you have a really sensitive mouse, like I think I do? Or just an itchy trigger finger? If neither, then I'd love to see if anybody has a fix for this to try.

Maybe three or four times since September. I use chat box to warn allies and head for nearest boundary (avoiding allies). I am not using a laptop. I exit game and use repair (tho' once I did not, to see if it would happen again). I all cases it did not occur again. I have no idea what causes it.

Sounds like folks with this problem should keep their guns and torps pointed off in a direction free of friendlies (or hopefully free of friendlies.)  If I'm "keyed up" or caffeined up my "trigger finger" sometimes twitches on the mouse key and *BOOM.*  Unfortunately I once triggered a torp salvo that way, just in time for a team mate to slide into the same smoke screen and into the path of the fish.  I wore "Pink" for 7 matches after that one.  :Smile_sad:

Just happened to me, in a DD, in a ranked battle. Of course, my stealth was blown off. The issue continued all the battle, impossible to play a DD when my guns fire all over the map.

I use an Asus laptop, but it is connected to a monitor, so the top is closed and the pad is not accessible.

So, any news about this bug?

New Functionality, didn't you Hear According to WeeGee we can only do one thing at time, so now Guns will Fire Automatically.

Yeah I had this problem a couple days ago, I thought it was a game master prank or something. 

So, the problem still exists, but nobody cares, right?

OMG yesss!  i thought it was just me...i have a sh*tty  laptop and it's happened idk how many times with my hands and fingers nowhere near the mouse or touch pad at the worst moments for a DD...

i've asked lot's of techies to which they have told me more often than not, that it's a computer memory problem

sounds logical, but regardless of the reason, it sucks

I'm one of the touchpad people, but my guess is that even if you don't have a touchpad something has triggered your computer's "mouse clicked" signal. The game has no way of telling a mistaken signal from a genuine one, so I doubt it's the games fault or that it's a bug.

It's strangely comforting to know I'm not the only person playing on a potato, though. xD
