Can spotting flares spot you in the smoke? Or do you disappear on the mini map when you enter it?

    This has been discussed before. I think it was determined that smoke>spot flare.
    I dont know if those threads are still searchable.

    The smoke neutralises the flare spotting effect whilst its present.

    It is bugged and doesn't work though, at least with 3d spotting. When playing grind a scout spotted a bunch of enemies, the enemies called in a smoke barrage and I could still see the Doritos above their heads. I ended up landing 6 or 7 headshot kills with the Commando Carbine.

    You can still see doritos through the smoke, just not inside it. Those guys may have been just outside the smoke effect area.
