Sometimes checkpoints don't work online and crossing the finish line doesn't do anything. I don't have any knowledge on recreating the bug, it seems to be random.

Console Battle is two games rolled into one: gambling (whether or not you get one of the OP weapons) and betting (which teammate won't turn on you, since teaming is pretty much a requirement to kill off another team)! Of course, it's not all chance; at its core, Battle is about triumphing and defeating other players... by kicking them out if they win to make yourself feel better.
