Lag switch flare exploit
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

i witnessed someone exploiting the flares work under 50km/h in a jet with subtle lag switching. Unfortunately I do not have the recording but I saw someone in a a164 deploy a flare burst right over me and when each one came out the jet stopped for a split second. There's no way it was coincidence that they lagged with every flare. The time stopped was very small and I'm not sure it could be seen if spectating them; I saw it because the plane was right next to a tower and the jet right in front of them did not shutter at all. This could be prevented by changing the head on flare criteria or implementing an average speed over some short time so a lag switch would be super obvious.

This is a known issue with mraas which fucks with the missiles. I believe its caused by the flare script from what ive heard.
