What shows up on the map?

I'm not really sure what shows up on the enemy map and what doesn't.

I know as a troop, if you have your knife out, only a passenger in an enemy hawk can see you. But what about vehicles? Do you show up as you enter the vehicle then disappear. You show up while shooting from the vehicle I think. Does someone in a vehicle beside you show up too, or just you?

Hope this makes sense and someone can help :)

a tank or jeep will disappear from radar if the enemy doesn't fire from it, so i guess ours are the same for them lol

 

i only know this cos was watching the map when an enemy tank fired from round a corner n it suddenly appeared on my map, then the image slowly dissipated until it fired again

 

troops, knife makes u invisible on radar, i think also sniper rifle n mines but not 100% sure:P

What shows up on the map is:

 

-Warhawks

-Tanks that are shooting

-Jeeps that have a passenger that is shooting

-APC using the boost or whose passengers are shooting

-Troops shooting with any weapon excluding the knife

 

I'm not sure if Jeeps that are honking show up on the radar too.

Don't you show up if holding any weapon but the knife when your in direct line fo sight of an enemy too (can't remember if its jsut fo that oen guy or the whoel team). The difference between knife and other weapons being if you have a knife you don't show up on enemy radar even if they are looking straight at you or firing. 

Is that right? or did I just make it up, lol.

lol spider, how can the game tell whether they are looking straight at you? :P

So if I am a troop and have my knife out, and get into a tank, the tank doesn't flash up, even briefly?

Actually I think you are right. The enemy has to be between the 2 lines on the minimap showing your line of site and I believe that they have to be within range of the weapon that you are carrying. If you are creeping up behind somebody, irrespective of which weapon you are carrying I don't believe that you will appear on their map.

an enemy can see you when you are firing a weapon, not when ur just carrying it

you can be seen firing a tank, shooting from an apc hatch in a hawk or dropship or shootin the gun on a jeep

 

you cant be seen driving without firing anything

you cant be seen runnin about regardles of the weapon u have unless u fire it

Soul has just reminded me of something.

 

Just to clarify my scenario was one where the enemy is not required to be firing a weapon in order to show up. If they are firing then they show up to everybody.

So I'm not going mad after all.  Thanks treefrog.  Some treefrogs give madening effects when you lick them, you seem to have done the opposite.

You don't show up if you enter in a tank...whatever weapon you're holding...the enemy will just see a tank disappear :D
