My lvl 3 sentry self destructed when i grabbed it by resuce ranger at close range. Glitch maybe?

Pressing 5 (demolish) instead of 4 (build) too much?
Spy sappin your teleporter?
Watch the kill messages and see what done it. (You might also watch from the developer console so you can at least copy/paste the destruct message here... if there is one)

When they self destruct, does the engineer say "Teleporter down!"? If so, someone else broke them in one shot, probably a Demoman using stickybombs.

This happens usually when I am hauling buildings with the Rescue Ranger.

I can think of two possible cases, you either moved your building into spawn area [self destruct while hauling] or you placed it somewhere it doesn't have enough space above for a player [exit self destructs with no notification immediatly after teleportation].

The self destruction upon hauling your stuff through spawn in fact is a rather new feature, however the self destruction upon teleporting a player to an exit with insufficient space has been this way for as long as I can remember.

That is weird. Do you have keybinds set up to destroy buildings, by any chance? If so, you might be accidentally pressing that key without realizing. Also, like the people above said, carrying your building through a spawn door will destroy it automatically as well.

Well it is away from Spawn hell same thing happened in Man Vs Machine
In fact another guy made an issue about this a few weeks ago, here is his topic.

Teleporter entrance keeps blowing up in mvm
Hey, ive been playing mvm as engy and i got 2 way teleporters. Sometimes when a guy uses it the entrance gets destroyed for no reason, no spies, nothing is there to destroy it. I looked in console and it says "Cannot update control point 0 for effect 'player_sparkles_red'." It seems like that happens every time. How can i make it stop doing this, as it is very annoying...

If you build your teleporter at a wrong place, it may get destroyed when someone use it, I do not see it happening recently though.

;_; Dear Engies over the world,
Stop this. Stop your teleporters from suiciding. Only YOU as an engy can help them. All teleporters have a great future in front of them. Save them, before it is too late.

If your player modle would get stuck in a wall or other object then the tele will explode.
