Random Deaths in new customs expansion

image.thumb.png.adc9241bb0abd1886680e6469bfd9fa7.pngFor some reason both my friend and I have encountered this problem. In the new expansion area of customs there are the train tracks by where you can go into old gas-station, and for some strange reason, if you go down them you get shot at by what my friend and I call "God". I was loaded and I saw a hole in the gate on the left and I wondered if I could go through it, boom, invisible wall. Than, (This happened in separate raids, once to my friend and once to me) I started getting shot at by god. Its an invisible scav that apparently makes noises, since I heard him scream in front of me, but I couldn't see him, and no matter where I went, even when I went prone down in the ditch to the right of the track, I die. I was really geared that run and the fact that it has happened on more than once occasion is unforgivable. My friend read somewhere that it was the game getting scared that you were going out of the map so a random sniper shoots you from nowhere, which is outrageous. If you have the audacity to create fake holes in the walls, at least dont kill the players for simply WALKING TOWARDS THEM. what the hell are we experiencing? The first time, my friend died to god and I looted him. I still have the dogtag, it says he was killed by "nobody" with "-" even though he was clearly getting shot at, and I didnt hear the bullets.

Hey there FortunateSon, this is a "border guard" he is simply to keep you from leaving the boundaries of the map. There are large signs on the left side of the tracks that warn you of him I believe. As long as you don't try to leave the map boundaries you will be just fine. It works the same as the mines/snipers on Shoreline and Reserve. It is a hard lesson to learn the first time.

You can go into an offline raid and test where exactly the danger zone begins so you don't get shot there again in a hectic situation. There is a lootable dead scav body between the train tracks which is pretty much as far as you can safely go. If you're in the lower area, however, and can't see the tracks, you'll have to find other landmarks.

Garbage game design. I came from the creek/water area, and kept following the wall on the right and it takes you to the these same train tracks and I randomly get shot by something I can't see and I never saw a warning sign. Why the ef can we walk someplace where you aren't allowed to walk? I'll just stop opening the game if that's how you want to build maps. The game's punishing enough without dealing with dumb af mechanics like this when I'm broke.

Oh ffs. Dude, game has plenty of issues but that "invisible sniper" is not one of them. The map clearly shows it's perimeter so it's up to you to be carefull. 

Oh and about no warning sign... https://i.redd.it/6i9q9ta41fd51.png
