Swift strike doesn't seem to be working.

LoopyloogrrrLoopyloogrrr Member Posts: 24
Hi all since the update my scout weapon ability swift strike hasn't worked once since 2.6 was released. Can anyone else confirm they are having the same issue?

Also something I've notice with my shooter. Without a doubt I'd one hit kill walkers. Now there they seem to absorb some of the shot only loosing 2 thirds of their health. This never happened before. It's almost like they have the bullet proof perk on or something?

Lastly the outpost is a mess. I can only raid the same place. This morning I fought "michael" 5 times. And there seems to be an issue with raiders with no health still attacking me then dying after their attack. I contacted next games about this before and their answer was the AI probably had health left. We constantly work to improve... Blah blah blah. This a really unhelpful because you lose health ultimately making healing times longer.

    Hi @Loopyloogrrr

    No issues with Swift Strike here.

    Also no problems with my shooters, but I don't used them often this challenge.

    Outpost is a known issue.

    It's definitely not working. I've done about 10 scavenger missions this morning. Not once did the ability work.

    Yes I have seen this too but before the 2.6 update.

    I was having the same issue with swift strike but the rest of my guilds was fine, so I just assume getting swift strike 1 in 20 goes was just shit rng

    This has been described elsewhere as a visual bug only, for what it's worth. I had no issues with my swift strike not activating since the update.

    Ah how strange I've played again and it's still not working. Double checked everything made sure I didn't change the weapon and it's still the same one with the perk.

    Can you post a picture of your survivor with the swift-strike weapon ?

    Maybe unequip the weapon, run a mission and then reequip?

    The action point circle lights up at the beginning of your turn if your scout is about to get slapped around _and_ has retaliate. This confused me also until I figured out what was happening. Also, they must use the same snippet of code for shooters using their charge ability, I've seen reports elsewhere (and observed) of the "swift strike" floating text above shooters. It also appears here and there when "extra" stuff is happening. Must be heavily reused (by lazy coders)
    Regarding OP, my swift strike is working. Pulled me through a lot of this past challenge.

    Btw... After my infamous shit strike post... :# ...i have to admit that my shift strike worked as expected in the last challenge... And it's not irony. As said @WahooDawg better to reequip a weapon when something seems not working. I do it very often

    Only problem I've had with Swift Strike is when my Scout is last to act and still has a visible AP, but the turn force ends and that visible AP doesn't count towards Overwatch.

    On the Outpost: last night I drew the exact same Outpost to raid 8 straight times. I get that there are bots, but mix it up NG! Outposts have become the forgotten, bastard stepchild of this game.

    I get it. Just like when you see the stun points/damage on the enemies before they even start moving on their turn. Thanks.

    My swiftstrike is not working either one of my favorite treats on my leader Glen. I will see him make his move and then the Walkers make their move as they do the circle around him turns white as if he had a chance to move or attack but I didn't have that option. And he's not on OverWatch. Something is wrong
  • CaptainslayerCaptainslayer Member Posts: 1,430
    @bigmac that is a visual bug that's glenn's retaliate trait activating, not swift strike

    @bigmac See @Avengers post earlier. You see the same visual phenomenon when you see stun/damage appear before enemies even move on their turn.

    Yes and when a scout attacks, you can see a nearby walker flinch as if the scout hit him telepathically or whatever but that is another visual glitch that shows you what happens before it actually happens
