Issues have plagued the Heartbeat Sensor for a while, from blips showing up when there’s nobody around, to ghost not working and showing you on enemy Heartbeat Sensors when you should have been hidden, now the equipment is literally killing people for no reason.

A clip posted to reddit by GiantDreamDwarf shows how they find a Heartbeat Sensor, and then use it to scan the area around them, the sensor finds nothing on the first ping so GiantDreamDwarf waits for the sensor to ping again.

Instead of a second ping, the player drops dead, despite not being shot by anyone. You can see in the killcam that the player who got credit for the kill had nothing to do with killing him, they get credit for the kill as well as it saying they killed them with the Heartbeat Sensor.

Heartbeat Sensors are causing players to drop dead.

The player who got the kill didn’t even shoot their gun and just seems to be minding their own business navigating the map – miles away from where Dwarf was.

There’s no logical explantation as to why these events would happen, but luckily this doesn’t seem to be a common occurrence. One player in the comments of the Reddit post has said this happened to them back in season 2.
