Description

  • The Ghostclip update changed the appearance of Kira's laser targeting.

    When moving an active pillar of fire, the desired location should have a flat square+circle-cross appearing just above the ground, and a small vertical laser beam similar to an impending Arty strike.

    The vertical laser beam is now missing.

  • Steps to reproduce:

    • As Kira, activate a satellite laser
    • Press Q or equip to move the laser somewhere else
  • Expected results:

    • Green/red cylinder
    • Light blue square+circle-cross
    • Light blue vertical laser beam
  • Actual results:

    • The vertical laser beam is gone.

    • Green/red cylinder

    • Light blue square+circle-cross

Reproduction rate:

  • 10/10

Note:

  • This change may not be specific to these mercs only and may affect others (i.e. restoring Skyhammer and Arty's effects, but forgetting about Kira, Bushwhacker, and Proxy):
    • No other abilities or effects or other parts of the game were tested
    • I don't know what other assets use this rope sprite laser
