I apologize if this has been discussed before, but nothing came up on the search so here it is.

I'm sure many of you have seen this before:
https://www.totalirrelevance.zeeblo.com/otherfiles/BF2/bug1.jpg

And you've wonder wtf is going on with them...

Well, they have no kit. This happens when you're revived but due to something your kit is too far away and you pick up nothing. When you're revived, your body automatically picks up the kit bag you're closest to. You may have noticed that you pick up something other than you had, because either a) someone else died right there, or b) someone else picked up your kit, leaving theirs behind for you. However, say you're killed on a roof and gravity pulls your body to the ground, but your kit stays on the roof. A medic runs by, revives you, and...well..

This is what happens.

You have no weapons, scrolling up and down does nothing whatsoever, your mouse buttons do nothing either. Your stamina is still there, although I'm not sure if it's a high level or low level, as that is normally decided by the kit. After pressing tab, you can see that the kit square is now a gray block. No kit.

I was going to try and see what would happen if I tried a mounted M249, or go on a ladder and look at 3rd person, but before I could get to one I was killed. Luckily, I was revived but to my dismay I had a sniper kit on. Then I heard my savior the medic shout clear again, this time to the sniper whose kit I collected. Now he was plagued by the no kit bug. And he looked like this.

He proceeded to stare at me, run around in circles, and stare again, just like what I did. You can see he looks much like an assault guy, as he doesn't have any other kit uniform. However, this time he was able to grab the mounted machine gun and was able to fire it, but then i looked closer...

He was indeed holding the gun like a telescope with a trigger. I can imagine that he didn't feel so well after putting an M249 buttstock into his eye.

Well.. there you have it.

LoL @ the mounted gun pic and commentary.  Ive seen this before, but never so thoroughly documented.  Geez, I understand why this happens now.  It doesnt happen to me with any frequency, but...

yeh that's really a nice one,

but.. (i hope it isn't too off-topic)
people can die 2 in strange way's

check this out:
they are all death, but just stay in a strange position,
sometimes they even move and "fly" a bit...
is that a bug or so?

yeah, from the blast damage or shock from whatever that killed them, bodies can be chucked about. Sometimes however, they got shot and 'pushed' into a solid object, and all 3d engineers know that solid in solid results in one of the solids flying about, due to a few billion or so collisions happening.

I thought that was just a 3rd person view bug :S

There are a ton of funny deaths in BF2 I especially like when the dead player seems to fall through the floor.

EDIT: not really fall through but sort of melt through the floor.

Lol the butt of the gun to the eye did it have any effect on the guy when he shot the gun?

Um...just wanted to say, why have a no-kit option for an admin (just to let the tker to run around being a menace like a turkey with no head) when an admin can just do an auto kick and ban at a moments notice?......o and necromantic, your animation of ....transformers or Gundam warriors or whatever it freakin hilarious

Yeah, I meant that it hasn't happened to ME. ME as I'm the one who doesn't see a gun and everything.

That I would like more screenies from.

I don't die so often nowadays so it's harder to happen to me I guess

Most often this happens near  arty strikes that don't kill but wound someone, yet still send them flying from their kit. Or, like i mentioned before, falling down cliffs, roofs, or anything sloping.

I have seen this bug several times, but some days ago, I got killed, revived and no weapon available for me, so I knew I was running around like some idiot , try to pick up other kit, doesn't work .

OK, I let myself get killed , offcourse some idiot on my team just kept reviving me, so I kept running around like a dam chicken, finaly I decided to just run to the enemy flag (so I realy could get killed) , for some bizar reason, enemy's wheren't there so I took the flag (morons, please kill me!!!) finay some enemy comes by, gives a look at me and then took me out of miserie. spawned back with weapons

Just on the deaths thing, I saw a lag-related bug that really freaked me out, didnt get any screenies of it because I was a bit too freaked, but basically, you would kill someone, and their body would fall down normally, then it would fall down again in the same way, and then it would be up again normally and sort of run a little bit and then fall over again, all with mangled limb motions. It was really terrifying. I was afraid to kill people.
