The Anti Aircraft vehicles cheat\glitch being able to see & shoot clear across the map is spreading & out of control, A player can stay in their spawn base & see & shoot targets on the complete opposite of the map, on Sandstorm a Red player in Red spawn can see helis far behind the fort…thats crazy!!! They aren’t using cameras & I cant get a video of them doing it while I am flying clear across the map. I am simply going to post the players names that I see doing it.

I will add daily because it is spreading fast.
A video is not possible because we are too far apart, it wont do any good showing my heli getting shot at behind the fort while the other player is still in their base because we cant see him from that distance, its not like the wall glitch that was obvious when you watched a player, visibly they don’t give anything away that is unusual to somebody watching them.
I play on a Mac & will private message you something I did find.
Watching them as a spectator shows nothing unusual, they are using some type of aimbot or something that outsides cant view, any heli pilot that has some experience that flies in Sandstorm has experienced this, problem is its spreading fast & occurring daily.
Ill play with you and you can hide behind the red base and record and watch them while i draw their attention…
I think this is the one case where using a god mode might be legitimate, so you could record the guys without having to worry about getting killed… ;)
Lump is absolutely correct on this matter and even surprised he got a few names I had.
I have had the same issues with following people:

Same for me, I have tried entering spectator mode but often I cannot turn the camera angle and maybe some times it doesn’t do justice if there is a difference in computer specs as I often play on low.
But I have full view distance and was when playing on red team far behind my own spawn on Sandstorm and was being shot by Drownedcarcass from castle where he was using the AA roof guns.
I logged out and came back in to capture a screenshot as he was doing it to someone else.
See image link below:
Good work Lump and all those fighting against these glitches.
I doubt there are game logs kept, but if its possible to see the distance I was shot down at by one of these players it would prove they are seeing 2 to 3 times as far as normal & still pretty acurate with their firing. (my player name is “Lump”)
I am beginning to think this isn’t a cheat\hack since known cheaters like “Hino” aren’t doing it, some of these players are new & pretty clueless to figure out a cheat, I think its some combo of gear & settings that gives them this incredible viewing distance & firing accuracy.
I know of other players that are sniping from one base to the other , impossible distance saying they can see the other players clearly. It takes me at least five minites of traveling to the other base before I can make anything out on sandstorm. I ask how they doing it they will not say but they do tell me they can see clearly.
There are some snipers that have this super distance viewing ability as well, so this all started about a month ago, either its an aimbot\hack or viewing distance isn’t being limited to certain players giving them a huge advantage.
cro has been playing a lot the last couple of days, he sits in red spawn & mows down opposing helis across the map.
I haven’t checked this but came across this website when googling for Red Crucible 2 aimbot.
Could that be the source of this long distance shooting?
Looks like they are using the “rocket cam” on other weapons somehow? Can someone try to replicate this to confirm it?
