Harvest gets counted for the wrong player

Postby petunia » October 18th, 2020, 6:06 pm

Bug Report
Game Mode: MP
Hunter Name: Petunia (Host), Heliah

Description:
In a session with a friend (mine: https://www.thehunter.com/#profile/petu ... n/96830436, theirs: https://www.thehunter.com/#profile/heliah/statistics) at least one magpie goose I shot with the new 12ga semiautomatic got counted for them. This is the goose in question: https://www.thehunter.com/#profile/heli ... /746099227 The session statistics also show zero shots but one harvest for them plus the achievement for the first harvest with the 12ga semiauto. I was the host in this session.

Steps to Reproduce:
We didn't do anything special so I don't know how to provoke this bug. Start an MP session, have a friend join, shoot geese.

This is not a bug, hunters do not have to shoot the animals to be credited with the kill,
the person who collects the animal gets the credit.

You will see post where people are struggling on a mission and ask for help, so a hunter
helps in killing for the other to collect.

Actually the person who does the killing shot of an animal must have it in their hunt history, must have it added to their stats, must have it added to their achievements, will have it count for competitions.

The person picking it up will not have any of this. Only if they have a mission open and the animal fulfills all requirements, it will count against the mission.


For the OP: This is a rare occurence, hard to reproduce. I would not bother tbh unless it happens again.

I also had this happen to me a couple days ago. I was credited for a kill that another guy shot. Same situation, it was a magpie goose, and I received an achievement for my first kill with a gun I don't own.

This just happened again last night. A buddy collected a wild boar I shot, and he was given credit for the kill (as well as his first kill with a gun he doesn't own).
