I am here to warn you all so you won't lose your precious vehicle like me.

After being very lucky I found a broken ATV which i managed to repair within something like 2 hours. But the ride did not last for long.
I wanted to take a break from playing and therefor i needed to find a place to hide the thing. I headed north to Pobeda Dam and i wanted to cross the Dam.

And here is the problem : When you try to cross the dam with a vehile there is something like an invisible ramp / ascent and when
you drive 'cross it you can't go back nor can you drive forward anymore. I had quite some speed and i flew a few meters with the ATV and we got stuck

When i tried to use the reverse gear it felt like driving against an invisible wall and the ATV went head over heels ...
Btw ..is there no way to turn your damn ATV around ?! Must be kidding me .. No way to save it ..

Wasted 2 hours for looking for repair pieces just to get 5 minutes of driving around :(

In this moment, death was the only way out

u actually can cross the bridge with other kinds of vehicles. its the atv bugging. same happens on other bridges and piers.
but theres a way to flip back. just can take a lot of time.
youtube has several unflip videos :)

Found an ATV abandoned on that dam. Took a car and pushed it off. Then tried to flip it upright and it flew up in the air and exploded when it hit the ground. After the server restarted it was back fully repaired and upright. I tend to just avoid the dam completely now with vehicles. They don't like it very much. Even the larger ones make crashing noises when crossing it.

Look at it from the bright side, at least a hacker didn't teleport you and the ATV to some place, but instead the game took it. lol

I rode across the dam with a bicycle, took forever to get across. I'll never take another vehicle on it.

Think I flip my ATV atleast twice a day. Getting the bitch back on her feet is an artform (reversing in circles while steering toward the sky usually does it after a couple of minutes)
Live and learn though
ALSO. If you find a scrambler (motorbike) DON'T run over Zeds whatever you do, 2-3 hits of anything (hedges, fences etc.) and your wheels will be gone!

I don't like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes.
Honour? Huh! Honour's killed millions of people, it hasn't saved a single one.

he was so in tears from his 17s video with that sad music :(

The gamma thing is not exactly cheating, the term is exploiting. You exploit a video setting to give you an advantage. The only people that defend that are the exploiters.
