Invisible missiles

hello, what is happening with air to air missiles? 50% games I get killed by invisible missile, even when I am chased by a player, I am free looking at him and this happens really often : - - - /

yeah, happens at high ping.

Hello. This is often due to ping issues. Either that, or you’re facing AIM-9Ms which has a smokeless motor (highly unlikely)

I get that sometimes too, I have a good internet connection.
Looks like its just some kind of desync, PvE helicopters are desynced AF with vehicles teleporting, ammo count updating wrongly, atgms firing but not actually firing so I guess such a desync could happen in other gamemodes too

Ping is about 42-46. May packet loss cause this problem?
