Bentu was the smart guy for uploading pics. Haven't seen him around in a while though.

I'll guess it's a converted Einstein. EA syn auto wolfhound. Easiest way to find out is to creep. Lol. Find a player and inspect. Did i win?

Hey Light Energy that's what I was talking about in the other thread about the hacker running with blur and he had that aura following him.

Maybe this guys got fed up of playing trove but he love his Ganda so much that he port it over to defiance and forgot defiance nerfs Everything, thus ditching the corpse of this Ganda while running from an invisible pvper with a sol destroyer.

You're welcome. I was hoping the devs might know :). I've never seen anything like it!

It's like the virtual, Defiance equivalent of a Koosh ball!

Oh, I see! Thanks for letting me know...I wondered if they were connected. :)
So this strange VFX is not some sort of grenade, but actually attached to a player's avatar?


Some early thoughts on possible explanations:


Rendering engine glitch / bug.
Some console specific bug / glitch (perhaps related to the specific architecture and the way things get rendered, memory limitations etc).
A new VFX that has leaked (a bit like Metamorph having the purple Ether Acceleration fireflies).
An old VFX that was not supposed to be in the release.
Some strange VFX created by a hack.

Of course, a hack might trigger/use 1-4 any way. It's hard to say at this stage...graphical bugs / glitches are not that rare in Defiance.

Some follow up questions:

Has this only been seen on PS3?
Does this 'koosh' VFX follow only specific players?
Does it matter which weapons those players are using?
Do the 'koosh' players gain other abilities? Do they always have blur?
Has this only been seen in PvP?

The thing is I have seen it show up in one match then just hang around for a couple of matches in the same place. Glad to see someone got a picture of it.

Aha... like the above seems to be just floating? I was thinking that is could be the remains of a grenade but glitched out.

I have seen graphical elements do this - grenades, explosions, energy blasts, plasma bolts, bmg beams... they are basically left over. The game doesn't always delete them, a bit like some residue, some data still in the buffer.

Yesterday, we were using plasma burst rifles in the Observatory and after a lag blip - there was this constant cacophony of plasma sounds and about 10 plasma bolts just floating in the air or in a wall.

I'm not saying that this is the whole reason (maybe a hack has triggered it) but just that the game does sometimes leave bits in the graphical buffer :).
I've seen enemy ghosts too...just standing around long after the battle was over.

The first time I have seen it was 4months ago. I was doing some pvp and a player was running around with it, without the use of blur or OC. Second time, I saw in a sniper war with a guy and he try to run for cover and this thing came apon him while he was running.
The picture in this thread was the third time I saw it and I know it won’t be the last.

The first time I saw it was at the side of the A cap point in FY. It was there for the next 3 matches. The second time I saw it, it was chasing a guy at B. Then it just hung around B in the same spot. I figured it was on of the new JPs glitchen out. In Danchou's thread "I love talking about PVP" it was my strangest thing you ever saw in PVP.

I did not know what you was talking about.Have you tried shotting it? Weird if it has been there for many matches, maybe its a console issue if the others players cant see it in the same place at the same time.
Nobody wanted to participate on my thread btw :c when I was making it ,I was very sure we all would have cool stories to read about pvp

I didn't shoot it but several players were running around it and shooting at it. Not going to lie while it set by the B cap point, I cloaked and hid in it to shoot people trying to cap the point. I am amazed that no one yet as been able to say what it is.

The players weapon in the image is EA pistol, probably einstein. The visual effect is the mystery.

Has anyone identified the player? Is it one player or multiple players? Are players inspecting participants in matches to identify the weapon and player who's using It? Has anyone pmd a dev for a response?

Is there not a single person on the forums that has an Einstein and can say yes that is the gun, and this is what the pretty colors are?

Erm... I don't think that was the real question (about the weapon the player's avatar is holding).

I have Einstein and that looks like Einstein...and Einstein doesn't do that on PC. I guess it is possible that this is a weird glitched / bugged PS3 version of the purple fireflies. I have seen those hang around for a while, and they do latch on to players for a while after it procs. Maybe if someone could organize a match on PS3 where only Ether Acceleration weapons were used, it would show up more? :confused:

My understanding is that: the person who took the screenshot / video (NobleLionz) is aware of what weapon they were using at the time. I believe Noble was asking which weapon caused the visual glitch / anomaly :) ... which would not be the particular weapon he was using.
