Increased Body Shots: it may not be all in your head

MizTyMizTy Member Posts: 1,335
In the Game Issues section of the forum, @Teeceezy revealed that NG found a bug that makes survivors equipped with Bulletproof armor experience an increase in Body Shots towards their victims. This will be fixed in update 2.2 :smiley:

    Thanks! I opened a thread a few days ago about two same-strength hunters of which one had significantly more bodyshots. But I checked and saw that she indeed has a Bulletproof armor.

    Thank gawd that’s been cleared up :)

    Thanks for bringing this into the general section @MizTy

    If I thought this game was consistent from player to player and across platforms, I would immediately remove any armor with bulletproof until 2.2

    But since I know it's not, what I'll do instead is watch for it very carefully

    Cheers for the heads up :)

    @rgerkman
    Yes, absolutely! In fact when I went to add this to my thread this morning I discovered that I didn't have edit access to the original post. I sent a message to @Teeceezy and I'm sure it will get straightened out soon. I appreciate you flagging me here though just in case I missed it!

    @Teeceezy @Shteevie

    Does the gear just have to have the Bulletproof trait on it or does the trait have to be unlocked?

    @Intersolar's post that @MizTy linked to seems to indicate the trait has to be unlocked to incur the bug.

    I was wondering if we could get some sort of confirmation on this, if possible, please.

    @Dodkong I'm sure that bulletproof has to be unlocked. I have used unupgraded armor with this trait without any problem.
  • RedEye52RedEye52 Member Posts: 182
    Yep, this solved my problem. I have a level 8 Hunter they keeps getting body shots on anything. Very frustrating. I changed his armor and it immediately improved. Yay!

    Lol... That's literally absurd. I can't believe someone screwed up the coding of the armor that badly. Jeez.

    Honestly, quite pissed about this. I don't have that much armor fit for the level so I can't just switch things up. This enables successes on Storymissions for me.

    I'm glad we caught the issue, which also led to another bug that would have possibly made it into 2.2 to be found and fixed as well. That armor will definitely be worth having post-patch, so don't toss it.

    And anyone that needs to hunt for replacements should make sure to play on Sunday...

    You might want to hunt for replacements until 2.2 when this is fixed so you're survivors can do more damage. Right now if they have armor on with this trait, there going to have a ton more body shots which makes clearing high level challenges very difficult. For example trying to clear a high level Archives map with 3 assaults when two of them have bullet dodge. Ugh!

    I noticed my Daryl has been having body shots WAY too often but I don't have bulletproof armor equipped to him. I know it's not my imagination because my other hunters don't even come close to the amount of body shots he's been getting.
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,070
    @tiwyg is your Daryl at the same level as your other hunters and using the same quality of gear?
  • psychwolfpsychwolf Member Posts: 1,244
    @NCDawgFan Yep, same level, class and same level gear.
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,070
    Strange @tiwyg . Good luck figuring it out.

    I always thought that Daryl's lack of luck trait made him body shot more often than other hunters.

    Something related to a 2.2 change - nothing in the live game.

    @tiwyg
    If you want to screencap your characters that you are referring to and PM me with your thoughts, I'll take a look.

    @snafu
    Luck doesn't factor into body shots. It only affects other traits from survivors or gear with a chance to activate.

    @Shteevie mentioned Sunday trade shop. If there is gear in the trade shop I won't be able to buy :( The legendary gear we had before was 12,500 TG's and I usually don't have over 5000 at the most. Enjoy the deals for me guys, I need to become a bit more frugal I guess. I wish there was gear in the store all the time B) !!! Hint, hint, hint....
