I just bought Max Payne 3 yesterday on demand. Played a bit of campaign until I wanted to jump in to multiplayer. I downloaded all the free dlc's and got in to a game. I spawned in the game, not being able to see myself, only my guns I had equipped floating in the air. My first round, I thought I was destroying because of my K/D, but it seemed odd that whenever I was shooting at someone, they fire at every direction. I was starting to suspect I was being invisible or something like that. I walked up infront of a few guys. None of them was shooting at me and then I realized I really was invisible to the other players. This is a known glitch, but unfortunately, it's affecting me. Yes, it is an advantage to me, but I don't want to be playing with an unfair (REALLY UNFAIR) advantage. Does anybody know how I fix this? I want to play a real game of Max Payne multiplayer.
Rockstar is alledgedly working on a fix
Same story. Just received the game from Amazon a few days ago and after playing the single player for awhile I wanted to give Multiplayer a go. Before my first match I downloaded the compatibility DLC, one that gives me access to the Hoboken Rooftops, and I believe the other free one was called "Gorilla Warfare". I noticed immediately I was just a floating gun but I figured there was some sort of compatibility issue with an update I didn't get or less likely this was the way it was supposed to be so I'd have a better field of view. It wasn't until I noticed I was doing way too well for a newbie and then another player complaining that he couldn't see me that I realized it was a bug giving me an unfair advantage.
I dropped out immediately because I didn't want to play that way either and because I was a little worried I'd be reported and penalized for exploiting. I'm relieved to find out that it's a "known bug" and that I won't find myself in trouble over this. I figured I'd post the details of what took place step-by-step in-case the right people read this and in the event it's helpful in resolving the issue.
I should also point out that I noticed that none of the character models were showing up when I was trying to view the Avatar options(Locked or Unlocked) before my first match. I saw the background but nothing else for the male or female versions. I opted to play as a male soldier with the first available avatar option. My first match started me in at the last few minutes of a Team Deathmatch round on the Branco Offices Map. The second match was the Hoboken Rooftops Team Deathmatch map.
I have this too. Stopped playing multiplayer though has i read online that some people think that your hacking. Not playing a game where someone thinks im cheating. Single player is amazing though!!
There was a patch released on Friday that hopefully fixed this issue.
I haven't seen any invisible people yet. Though the spawning still sucks.
I agree ramir180, Max Payne 3 has the WORST spawning system ever. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the game, but I HATE the spawning with such a passion. Sometimes u give ur enemies free kills just for respawn in front of them in the most randomly places.
And yes the last's Friday's patch got rid off invisibilty bs.
The first time I went online, I was invisible just like you. i thought I appeared invisible to myself only due to me probably clicking a button to change camera. My first match I got a 20-1 record (death was due to booby trap) :)
I just went out of Multiplayer, go into my loadout and avatar section and the bug was cleared.
