After the most recent update, my gun and that of others seem to be firing by themselves.  I thought at first it was just a bunch of noobs "test firing" their guns until it happened to me in the last 3 games I was in.  Anyone else having this same issue?

It just happened again.  I tried a different tank and the damned thing kept shooting into cover before I can pop out and engage.  It doesn't make any sense and is frustrating as hell.

Once a few years ago. Almost ran out of ammo in the ISU-122S.  Unplugged mouse and keyboard and it still fired away.  Never had the issue again and no idea why it did it that time.

Never heard or seen something like this before.

This was happening to me about a year ago, then I realized I needed a new mouse.  On certain movements, the mouse was somehow causing the left clicker to click, and also it was ultra sensitive so if I barely rested my finger on left side it would click.   

Try a different mouse and see if it continues.

Yeah sounds like your mouses left click button is going, they do that after a few years.  I know all the mice I've had have had either the left or right button start double clicking when you click once.  Though the last one the right mouse button would sometimes let up, meaning I couldn't look around without my turret trying to follow where i'm looking.

My platoon mates were just happy I got a new mouse so I'd stop shooting them in the a** on accident.

Exactly what happened during the last game.  Thanks, I will try using a different device.
