Your stabs only hit from about your chest down. The sentry was probably just slightly out of your reach.

He's talking about Sentries on an incline.

The hitbox just pokes over the top of crate on a level surface.

There's two situations while I'm playing as a  :x18: happened on ctf_dirtbowl:
1.  :x5: on the stairs, I'm 'near' it but when I stabbed it but it won't destroy
2.  :x5: on a normal slope, I'm 'near' it too but *obvious last 3 words is obvious*

The autogun slips out of the hitbox

And I remember agh posting something about the red's base having a spot where for some reason the autogun is unstable on that map.

Naw, the hitbox for the backstab is about 24 pixels in front of you and higher than your head.

Doesn't seem to hit on slopes though unless they're on top of you.

I often use this to my advantage to avoid my sentry guns from being destroyed easily.

A sentry in this position can't be stabbed. I tried it from all different positions but the sentry doesn't react.

This is the map: http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/1985/ctfdirtbowlv2.png
The reason that happens is because the stab is hitting the upper wall.

Note: I'm very near the sentry that I stab it like '2 TIMES' and the sentry doesn't react, I might post a video to proof this
Anyways what server are you playing on that screenshot?

That's because the stab is nulled one can say. The stab can only hit the wall and not the sentry. To prove it go stab a wall and you will notice a graphic come out of the stabbing motion, but when stabbing air no graphic will come out. Now try to stab the sentry and you will notice that the stabbing will produce the graphic as if hitting a wall, because you technically are.

I've been making a ctf_Dirtbowlremix, and trying to find things to fix. This will be my next target to fix.

There's a similar issue at Orange, if he puts he sentry in the little sniper nook at the front of the base.
