you cant jump when you are prone.

you can only jump when you are standing.

I think thats not a bug. I had that too it always happend to me on a slow server.

It's not lag, it's a bug.

When your Soldat is prone, it can still slide, and sometimes the movement system gets confused and gives you upwards velocity. Generally when you're prone on a hill sliding down...

That's never happened to me on a fast server. If it is a bug then it's got to be lag that causes it.

No, it always happens when you are prone and there is a lag spike (the game freezes for a second). And it seems that the longer the lag, the higher you bounce. Beleive me, I snipe all the time, and it always happens on a laggy server. Of course, it could be a lag-bug, but it definitely is associated with lag.

hmmmm, ok well it's probably a bug cause by lag then :P

I've only ever seen it on servers with very low lag, but then I have barely seen it at all.
