Kill Icon not displaying most of the time

I'm not sure what the conditions are, but it seems that most of the time, the kill icon for the weapon doesn't show up. Occasionally it shows up, and it seems to happen most often on active teleporters. Anyone know why it doesn't display so often? Mewizkuit 20:27, 2 August 2012 (PDT)

yea, I couldn't manage to reproduce a situation where it showed up. It just kind of does it when it feels like it. Balladofwindfishes 20:29, 2 August 2012 (PDT)
I've only had it show up twice for me. Once for a dispenser, and once for a teleporter. (but only one, not both teles) Also, probably not relevant for the wiki, but interesting fact anyway, I was on an achievement server that had sentries premade on the map that respawn the instant they are destroyed. Using this sapper however, they never came back. People got mad at me. My guess is that it isn't counting as a kill, but more like an engineer destroying it himself. That just a guess though.

Hidden Messages?

I've heard that within the sounds, there is clear speaking. Not only in English, either. Perhaps this can be investigated and added to the trivia section? CoolJosh3k 09:17, 3 August 2012 (PDT)

It's not really trivia, but yes, two of the sound clips for the Recorder have speaking. One has (unintelligible) English, the other has what I assume is Chinese in it. -- Ragnar Homsar 09:20, 3 August 2012 (PDT)

Server Crash when sapped by stock sapper?

Please elaborate. I witnessed glitched sentries ALL NIGHT, and not a single time did the server crash if a regular sapper was attached. The only difference was that it took longer to take down the building, as the dps of the stock sapper is limited.

yea, I meant to remove this. Someone I know tested it and there was no crash. I think it was a rumor that made its way onto here and just stuck. Balladofwindfishes 10:26, 3 August 2012 (PDT)
