    Just a quick clip showing how Quake Live sometimes registers direct hits as (seemingly) splash damage - Very noticeable in the current DevPick, which is instagib with rockets, grenades and gauntlet.

    It didn't even give a hit sound.

    After destorying plenty of dev picks with my amazing rocks, I had plenty occasions of someone in the air taking a roc and being moved by it but not killed. I determined the edges of the hitbox work much like stairs and register damage incorrectly. I dont care though cause I'm such a badass I just slammed the punk with another roc while he was still in air. Come at me bro's.

    just a note: Obituary message can hint you how enemy died from your rocket. "B ate/rides A's rocket" means it was direct hit. "B almost dodged A's rocket" means B died by splash damage.
    bind END "quit'

    Just played a rocketgib game where I hit a guy 4 times in a row in mid air (he got pushed away), and only fifth rocket killed him. It happens all the time and I can have ~10 hits per 40 frags that do not kill opponent. I'll try to record a demo and post it.
