Bioware has extra Anthem issues on its palms with a bug that makes the extent 1 Defender rifle simply as highly effective as a degree 45 masterwork rifle.
First flagged up by Reddit consumer u/YeetLordSupreme (through Nibel on Twitter), it appears that evidently the extent 1 Defender rifle is extra highly effective than its increased degree counterparts, regardless of the harm numbers displayed being vastly completely different.
Comparing the extent 1 widespread Defender rifle that does 286 harm, with a degree 45 masterwork Ralner’s Blaze rifle that dishes out 1184 harm, u/YeetLordSupreme found that it took six bullets to kill a scar trooper with the masterwork rifle, and solely 4 with the Defender.
“I have tested this with various weapons and enemies, and while the numbers vary, the results are always the same: the level 1 defender rifle is by far the most effective weapon in my inventory. It melts literally fucking everything!”
Redditor u/beatpeet42 additionally examined the idea, evaluating “a legendary Ralners Blaze with 225% DMG,” and the lavatory normal degree 1 rifle. They had the identical consequence, which you’ll try for your self under.
The excellent news is that Bioware’s technical design director, Brenon Holmes, popped onto the thread to try the issue.
“We’ll need to investigate this, scaling systems are supposed to allow low level players to play with high level players to be effective against high level enemies,” he said.
“This is not intended, something ain’t right there…”
Anthem appears to be having one drawback after one other, with the latest being that the game is crashing PS4 consoles.
