When a player is killed, the X marking their death will appear above a living player, frequently the enemy player who killed them. In this video, it gives away the position of an enemy player, leading to a non-legitimate frag. I've also seen this glitch in competitive play, though I don't have footage.

This is a significant bug, giving an opportunity for non-legitimate knowledge of enemy position every time a player is killed.
