- When your scav senses are tingling
I was scavving Reserve with one friend on comms when we made friends with this individual. My friend went off to loot one more building before heading out, and the individual followed me to extract. My friend was able to come loot him before extracting. They had raider loot including a trooper armour and grenades, so they really lost all that trying to get my trash loot.ID: h9rugc4
Dude the same thing happened to me at the exact same spot! A fellow scav showed me to 3 dead pmcs, whom he had looted clean except for a ULACH helmet. He went on his way and I stuck around until I found someone's loot stashed in a bathroom. I believe he dropped a Killa armor and an MDR. I started to head towards the extract when another scav started to follow me. We both exchanged wiggles and before the extract I dropped an MGT for him. He dropped his rig, but I didn't have room for a rig so I didn't pick it up. He then dropped a vodka. I went to pick it up and he tried to put a bullet in my head, but the ULACH saved me! I gunned his ass down and stole his 2 sugars, good riddance.ID: h9rwcym
That's great. Killing other scavs on sight is one thing, but tricking them into letting their guard down seems extra scummy. I guess all's fair in love and war. Still feels very satisfying when you kill them anyway.
Such a satisfying video. Glad you got emID: h9rjlwh
Thanks! My mate was still in raid so they got to loot them haha.ID: h9rl8ya
Maybe he thought you were trying to kill him when you cleared your chamber twice, note how he only turned around to look after you did it the first time, then when you did it again he shot.ID: h9sfab1
Came here to say I believe this might be the case.
The split second OP does it the first/second times the guy stops dead in his tracks as if he heard it but didn't know what it was. Then they move to extract and OP does it a third time. Guy hears that sound again, turns around to see a gun pointed at him and OP does it one more time while holding aim. I'm thinking he might have gotten suspicious. Just as OP suspects the guy is sizing him up and instinctively moves right before the shot, who's to say that the other guy turned around and didn't think that exact thing of OP.
OP mentioned in another comment the guy had raider juice. Also mentions he met up with his friend earlier in the game and they all had zero issues up until this incident.
Of course this is all just playing devil's advocate. I don't know what really happened. Just making conversation.ID: h9smwax
I definitely think he got spooked. He thought OP was sizing him up so he went for the kill before he got killed.ID: h9t3zk8
That "stopping dead in his tracks" was the guy opening his inventory. Obviously can't say for sure what caused him to shoot for sure, but he wasn't spooked.ID: h9sre4h
who's to say that the other guy turned around and didn't think that exact thing of OP.
I guess the difference is that they shot first. I only started racking rounds because they racked a round just before this clip started and I thought we were having a rack off.
It's an interesting interpretation you have, it could be right. My interpretation was that they were looking around to see if my friend, who had left us some 20 seconds earlier, was still around and would avenge me.ID: h9sxmpj
Guy hears that sound again, turns around to see a gun pointed at him and OP does it one more time while holding aim.
This is the big part. If you were facing 90° or 180° away from him, sub-10% chance this guy even thinks of shooting.ID: h9srht5
I'm open to this, but I'm not sure why clearing the chamber multiple times would make someone think they're trying to kill them. I only started racking rounds because they racked a round just before this clip started and I thought we were having a rack off.ID: h9st7qh
Just seems like a weird thing to do multiple times so I’d be a lil sus too tbh. Plus he turns and ur looking right at him lol. Def can see both sides here
Well done! That guy was a dick and I'm glad you got him! As a scav on Interchange I saw another scav killing AIs on his way to Emercom. There were 3 minutes left in the raid. I didn't manage to kill him but I did manage to extract with 2s left in the raid while laying suppressive fire on him so he ended up MIA. Super satisfying stuffID: h9rmngq
Nice, even better some may argue.ID: h9sqq5s
I think clearing the chamber repeatedly baited the guy.ID: h9sv1hq
I don't understand this logic. "Ah man they're racking their chamber... menacingly! I must shoot."
If you weren't staring at him down the barrel of that sks he might not have shot at you at all, your actions were sketchy as fuck to me in that scenarioID: h9shpbw
Holding the sks in his face and taunting him…self fulfilling when op is that suspiciousID: h9ssk7s
He baited himID: h9spbpj
I agree, almost looks like OP was baiting him to fight. May not be true, but this video isn't definitive proof that the other scav had this planned.ID: h9swxvu
must have missed the comment were op says the guys racked his weapon firstID: h9sikq1
Ya I would have blown his head offID: h9sr5my
I only started racking rounds because they racked a round just before this clip started and I thought we were having a rack off.ID: h9tx7ob
What the fuck is a rack off?
In 0:06 it looks like you provoked him.
You baited him by repeatedly clearing the chamber. Dude probably thought you tried to kill him and you had a weapon malfunction.ID: h9sr52x
I only started racking rounds because they racked a round just before this clip started and I thought we were having a rack off. I didn't realise racking 4 rounds constituted baiting and not banter.ID: h9subhl
You probably should’ve included that in the clip, because all we have in this clip is this guy seeing you rack your sks repeatedly while pointing it directly at him. I would’ve been sketched out too if I were him.
racking the bolt while looking right at him - if I were in his shoes I'd shoot you too, because that probably sounds exactly like a weapon malfunction to him.
stop acting suspicious around other pscavs maybe? You both should have made off with your loot.ID: h9sn3po
And he had his gun pointed at him several times. If the loot was good enough I would have domed him too tbh.ID: h9syoa9
It's almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy. He's so suspicious that the other scav is gonna kill him, which to another scav, looks exactly the same as the behavior of a scum scav who is looking for a clean opportunity to get an execution on you unaware. So, the closer they got to extract, the more OP is looking at him, because OP is getting himself more and more scared...meaning he's staring at the other scav WAY MORE the CLOSER THEY GET TO EXRACT, and is POINTING HIS GUN AT HIM WAY MORE from WAY CLOSER RANGES...bro, of course he thinks you're trying to fucking kill him. Gamers need help with mental modeling lmao...ID: h9sqpz4
Racking 4 rounds sounds like a weapon malfunction? Maybe, but I only started racking rounds because they racked a round just before this clip started and I thought we were having a rack off.
Mine did that to me yesterday in factory. My boy died to a player scav that thought he was a rogue scav and I was on a blacked out leg. I took the pilgrim off my boy and the cowboy hat he had as the dude was trying to loot my boy (he’s the one that killed him) and I took them first and started walking. He waited till we got to exfil cause there was like 7 bot scavs around shut the door and shot meID: h9s1bom
I knew he was going to kill be but I was what ever about it and just let it happen
This is why I’m never sure to trust player scavs because I’ve had many times where I’m looting a body surrounded by AI scavs and I get killed by a premium player scav (orange text) so don’t be too friendly with player scavs I hope those types of people never get good stuff from Fence
Always wiggle wiggle too so that I indicate I’m friendly too
Greed is a bitch.ID: h9rwer3
More like a fat man with insatiable hunger
You better of not lost karma for thatID: h9rq714
I didn't gain or lose any, which I believe means they had hit another scav at some point but hadn't killed them.ID: h9rsoz3
Killing a raider as a scav has no karma penalty but allows other player scavs to kill in retaliation with no karma penalty.
greedy rat hope he logged out after that
Not trying to be offensive or anything, but I think he thought you were going to kill him since you stared at him a bit too long. He chose to kill you first but then missed and you killed him.
i learned to not trust other scavs when i see one i hesitate then wiggle then run off into cover if he follows i kill em had my heart broken after finding a friendly scav that i trusted just to get the ear damaging headshot thru a helmet sound after turning my back away from him
"He tried to kill me, he tried to kill me, it happened," bro you pointed your fucking gun DIRECTLY AT HIM and COCKED IT THREATENINGLY SEVERAL TIMES, what the fuck did you WANT to happen with that?
DON’T EVER let a stranger follow you to extract.ID: h9ruc1d
How do I stop them :pID: h9rvg4m
Woah man, I've met many good stranger scavvies whilst exploring the map.
Always think the scavvie is out to kill you, thats all, most won't.
The fact you didn't lose rep means the fucker was killing other scavs.
Really need some sort of subtle indicator for someone's rep level. Even just some sort of texture overlay of mud/dirt on their gear and gun.
