Me and a couple of friends on Android have seen a bug where if you look at a tank, they seem to look away from you (possibly afk). However, when you stay out and shoot them thinking they are afk, their turret snaps back towards you in 1 frame and they shoot you.

 

I have actually been destroyed because of this

 

I was wondering if Apple users experience this bug too?

Yes. Usually, though, the hitskin shows where the turret is actually facing.

I saw this on a bushka on blitz youtube video. It happened to him on the mines map.

I think it was his video on the Panther M-10.

I'm on IOS and I also have this bug. Kinda random. The hitskin shows where they really are facing, but the ingame model wasn't.

Very irritating. I have lost many games due to 183s doing this.

VERY rarely happens to me in sniper, and unlike Themastertanker the hitskin is spot on still

Once in a while I have seen this in iOS. Where you flank or sneak up on a tank, because you see it looking away or even firing at an enemy, then you come from behnd cover and bang or derp, they had their gun waiting for you. 

 

The only related thing to it is that this would happen for instance when I did not have a direct visual line of sight, the enemy was spotted and rendered on my screen in regular view and I was waiting fir the right moment to attack.

Also, pretty sure his turret was actually facing the direction of the hit skin as I could easily pen him in my type59.

It happens to me every 100 games or so where theres a tank whos turret is looking to the side but you can see the faint outline of the way its actually looking and sometimes theres a red dot where the mantlet would be so just shoot those tanks in the hull.
