Hey!

Do you have any equipment placed in the world when this occurs? It doesn't have to be in the rendered view. I'm trying to replicate this, but so far I'm unable to do so.
Edit: I'm able to replicate this now. Now I only have to figure out why this is happening.

It has happened to me too. In MP game on TGT. Doesn't happen in SP. Tried to take a picture of the flickering, but it just shows as a solid line. Next time I see it I will record it, unless you figure it out, Martin.

I have the same problem on VdB - never noticed it before, but now when using the spotting scope on higher zoom, there's an ugly flicker effect, similar to the one DYEUZ showed in his video above. It only happens on Val-des-Bois at the moment and it seems to happen only with the spotting scope on the higher zoom levels. Rangefinde binos and rifle scopes are fine at the moment. Playing in SP.

I believe this has something to do with large equipment on the map, like deployable towers or tripod stands. Having a hard time replicating it here on my end in SP. I've seen it in MP but have yet to figure out why. When moving the flickering around I tend to see the same colors as the tower or tripod stand. We did a small fix for this before but it doesn't seem that it solved the issue, so I'll continue to investigate!

Any more information is greatly appreciated as I've said before. Like color schemes, directions, items placed on the map and so on. Anything you can think of really :)

Okay, thanks Martin, here's my VdB setup for a start:

I didn't have this problem in the past, so you might be right about large items being the cause. Unfortunately I can't remember when it started, I just noticed it two days ago and haven't hunted in VdB for quite a while.

I'll try to take some footage of the problem later today and observe whether it changes depending on location, looking direction etc.
