Broken Death Event?

OP fr33h33l

When fetching all of my matches (Halo 5 - Player Match History) and the associated events (Halo 5 - Match Events) through the API, I get a Death event with both killer and victim being null and the weapon stock id not matching any weapon id.

Should this be able to happen? What does a Death event without any killer or victim even mean?

Match id: 962db1b6-2d90-409a-9913-d0fe441be534
Time since start: PT19.3424962S
Killer weapon stock id: 390856427
Hi there! Unfortunately I don't have a great answer for you. Usually what these are is explosive barrels or other environmental objects interacting strangely. What I can tell you though is that you can probably filter this out and ignore it. A good thing to filter on is Disposition = 2 ("Neutral"). Hopefully this helps a little bit!
Ok, I'll filter on (death)Disposition.

Thanks for the reply!

P.S. Please let me know whether it is useful to you that I send possible further "bug reports" or feature requests. I fully understand that most of your resources are devoted elsewhere at this point, but I'm hoping that any feedback I can give will help improve the corresponding APIs for Halo Infinite.
