Didn't know if this belonged in Bug Reports or Jailbreak, so I just picked Jailbreak. Anyway.

Recently within TF2 as a whole, there have been some exploits that have really broken the game, and one of them really interferes with one of Jailbreak's favorite maps: hop_jb.

The exploit includes the infamous BKM (Burger King Massacre). All that is needed to do this exploit is any sticky-bomb launcher. If you go into the Armory of hop_jb and carefully place sticky-bombs on the wall near the button of BKM, it will trigger BKM through the explosion.

The TF2 exploit used to do this can be seen here, on Delfy's YouTube channel:
(FYI I very much dislike Delfy and what he does)

Before I drift off into a rant about how Delfy makes everything worse, let's talk about the exploit itself. To do this very simple exploit, you have to place 3 or more sticky-bombs on a thin wall and it has the ability to put the explosion onto the other side of the wall. This explosion is what triggers the BKM button, which then leads to a complete failed round of freekill and anger.

How to solve this problem? I don't really know. Here are some of my ideas:

1.) Put BKM in a different place so you can make the walls thicker or make it so sticky-bombs or any other weapons can easily trigger it.
2.) Hope the TF2 team does something about the exploit. Delfy sure isn't helping at all. In fact, he made it 18 times worse.
3.) Get rid of Burger King Massacre in all. Yes, it can be funny at times, but it's just not fun literally 99 times out of 100. It's sort of a useless feature.

I don't have screenshots sadly, but I think I explained enough. Hope this gets fixed, soon.

This was already possible with engie placing a teleporter there and is easily classified as a map exploit as it is round ruining and Was not the intention of the creator (or at least I hope not)

Hopjb is a map with its problems but there would have to be more broken things for there to be a fix for it. If you see a demoman/engie (heck I’ve seen a soldier do it before) doing any of those things remind him that is not ok. but lets face it he is gonna keep doing it anyways so might as well report him.

Active admins is the best and simplest solution.

Agreed.
That and, if it was possible at all, editing the map and adding some wall to cover the whole glass door with the slit in it, and the thin wall next to it where you can detonate stickies. just block it off completely, idk.

Like I told you before, there is no reason to edit a map for one problem, especially if attempting to fix that problem will cause other problems after decompiling.

give me the map files, when i get back to my computer, i'll fix all the problems with the maps, and remove BKM from hop, because, ONE ISSUE IS STILL AN ISSUE, and even if it's just one, we should make sure it's resolved.
