Thanks! It seems to be exactly that. Especially the second time stamp I linked seems to confirm that. Weird. Have you seen a bug report for the effect?

Might be related to the hud blurring issue, which have been reported long ago.

Quite sure it is the heat of the cannon after shoting.

Those are the shockwaves from rounds impacting the water. Happens with rockets. Happens in helos and jets where there shouldn't be any heat coming off the nose.

Thanks for your answers. Is this already reported? I mean, with a dedicated topic one could always post a link to? The forum Search gave me nothing.

This was something I noticed as well, bullet impacts in the water does not create "heat wave" effects. In any case, it has now been fixed, will come in a future update

I was tipped by an undercover informer that the fix has already been released.
