    I've never heard anyone mention this as a problem before. Can you use a screenshot to show what happens with it.

    If drone is behind a wall and you are in a hall where you can only see bottom part, it is, in fact invisible.

    this is almost like you feel the need to constantly increase the toxicity of a simple problem because you have nothing better to do kid.

    how is it invisible
    its clear that it has red color

    its your fault for not paying attention, her ability is to punish ability spam.

    How is it invisible, maybe you cant see it on the lower parts of the shield? Maybe its a bug?
    Its clear that its red? No @$!# @$!#

    Its your fault for not reading anything and jumping to "I should be salty and not give a @$!# about what he claims, and just assume hes wrong, cuz ya know, my logic!"

    No, next he'll say "You can clearly not see the red".

    Golden rule of the internet : Screenshot or it didn't happen.

  • kopyrightkopyright Posts: 598

    But how do you screenshot something you cannot see?

    In honesty the only bug where it becomes truly invisible is if you land it directly on the EV (without it bouncing off), as it then glitches out but still functions; I'm not sure why, or how this got past the testing phase in the development pipeline on the Public Test Servers, but it happens. When done correctly it doesn't finish its deployment animation and thus, in consequence, the Red Dome is never spawned into the world space; I've seen and experienced similar instances first-hand with the deployment animations of Ammo Stations, where it drops and activates without finishing its animation. I've had both of these instances happen more than a few times, and done it myself to test the theory, and it is indeed an existing bug; beyond that there are no known instances where it's not rendering the ability's Radius of Effect, thus giving proper warning to its presence, as far as I'm aware.

    Ultimately it could be due to the same glitch where the animation gets stuck in a loop and doesn't finish, which also still plagues Shotguns from time to time; however without seeing the exact positioning, placement, and activation sequence going through first-hand it's hard to tell if this is the case here. Things in Dirty Bomb break all the time, Animations are no exception much like the Audio, so while I am inclined to believe this is just an instance of user error I wouldn't immediately dismiss it; after all there are lots of small bugs and glitches in this game that Splash Damage somehow manages to allow to slip through the cracks consistently during testing. The main issue here is that it's happening with an ability that serves as a hard-counter to explosives and Projectile-based Abilities, such as Aimee's SNITCH for instance, and should be addressed before it becomes widely abused; as it seems it's possible to force the glitch with regards to Guardian's Sky Shield, which will only lead to abuse once enough players figure it out.

    P.S. @stayfreshshoe I would definitely suggest looking into this as it's been an ongoing issue with the animations across-the-board, both with weapons and abilities, and can only get worse from here-on-out with any future Deployables of similar nature.

    Well, if you can see a deployed drone but not the shield, then it's enough. Or, if the drone cannot be seen either, you clearly explain how it happens and when, state the reproduction steps, in a detailed post as @-OCB-Wildcard just did, and not by posting 2 poor lines of vague assumptions.

    For instance, this deployable bug seems to appear in weird geometry, as I saw the same thing happening with the heartbeat sensor clipping through placeable. It also happened with a smoke grenade :

    you can clearly see the red

    You cant "clearly see the red" if your in an elevated area and covered or in the middle not capable of seeing the lines. Cough cough halls

    Neither were able to be seen

    Theres nothing to elaborate on, the shield could not be seen.

    Not sure why youre acting like I can write on essay on an invisible dome.............
